They come out 2 days before christmas or 2 days after. I went to the infiniti 2009 infiniti model lineup on youtube and they were talking about them then. The only difference is that they add a scratch protective coat to the paint that makes it heal itself at a certain temperature. They also added the automatic door locking system to lock the doors when you take off driving. They didn't change nothing on the M35x/M45/M45x as far as motor or transmission go. The M35 got the new motor and 7 speed transmission. All the other options stay the same like tech and advan tech, and premium package. The price went up on the M's about 2k from start MSRP of 43K for M35 base to 45K and 47k for the M35x. M45 to 52k for base to 54K for M45X. Hope this helps you.

I believe both the M35 and M35X got the new engine (303 HP), but only the M35 got the 7 speed transmission.

I saw the 2009 M's today in Houston. Both the M35 and M45 were there. One M35 is all they have so far more to come this week.
#104 of 125 M35x mechanicals compared to G37x

I went to the Washintgon DC Auto Show this past weekend. Noticed that the 2009 AWD G sedan had a 7 speed AT while the more expensive AWD M sedan had a 5 speed auto (and the G had a bigger engine).
Is the AWD M going to be receiving the 7 speed at some point?

From what I am hearing they are going to be making a new M for the 2010 year model which will be a M37 and M50 the M37 will replace the M35 but it will have the same engine as the G37 and 7 speed transmission. The M50 will replace the M45 and have the engine from the 2009 FX50 which is a 5.0L 390Hp 369LBs ft. torque but it maybe a little more now being that all the other competition is now producing V-8 engines with no less than 400 hp. It is said that the 2010 M will look even more like the G37. When the pictures and more info is released we will know more. You can check this info by typing 2010 infiniti m50 into your google or yahoo browser and they will give you the info. Also check infiniti history they talk about it a little there to. Hope this helps God bless.
#106 of 125 2010 Infiniti M37x & M50x Questions?
May 28, 2009 (9:38 pm)
So Infiniti 2010 M's will be redesign similar to Infiniti G sedan with the new V6 engine 3.7L , 7 speed Auto-transmission for the M37(x) & the new V8 engine 5.0L from the FX50, w / 7 speed Auto-transmission for the M50(x).
What is the MPG for city / hwy?
Will the HP & LBs be the same as in the G37 & FX50?
I find the M as an excellent luxury-sport sedan, but the avg. gas milage is very low compare to the Lexus GS & Hyundai Genesis.

From what I read a few weeks ago about it, the president from infiniti division said that the M45 can't have less horsepower than the fx50. The gas mileage might still suck because it didn't change much on the 2009 fx50.

Okay, we now know that the '09 M35 (V6) got a boost to 303 HP, while the M45 (V8) stayed the same. The M35x and the M45 still have the 5-speed tranny.
The M35 and M45 HP ratings are now so close that no way can I see the M45 as worthy of its price premium, let alone the M45's strong reputation for oil-burning and engine replacement need!
Too bad the M35x missed the 7-speed auto, but the "x" and M45 have the presumed advantage of a tranny with a great track record, whose only shortcoming vis-a-vis the 7 speed is its short gearing in 5th.
Thanks for the discussion, all. Me, I'm very happy with what I bought!.
