local Infiniti dealer finally got two 2011 M's in today and while I didn't test drive them, I did get a really good look at the exterior and interior
all I can say is WOW !!!!!
this new M by far has the nicest Infiniti interior to date! everything is sculpted and has nice textures, ergonomics, etc
I love everything they have done to the exterior! I really love the sexiness of the rear end; they really smoothed it out and put some curves in it and got rid of the big bloaty boxy rear-end the current M has!
overall, really impressed with what Infiniti has done; only critism I can think of is, it is really hard to distinguish it from the current G Sedan! a G was parked next to it and I did not notice the new M at first! not necessarily a bad thing but, hey! also nice to see that Infiniti put on top of the line Michelin Primacy Tires, which should help give the M a smoother ride!!! can't wait to test drive it later this year!

I stopped by my local dealer and got to drive the M37..
I was so looking forward to this car and found:
Take away the front and rear headlight/taillight treatments and the metal shape looks just like a MAXIMA!!!
It is super fast, but as in my "07 M35, you hear a lot of outside/tire noise, particularly in the back seat when riding there..
The dealer threw an "outrageous" lease price for it, not to mention the "sticker" is more than the Lexus G35, or Jaguar XF, and about on par with the Mercedes E350!!!
Personally, I think it is a great car, but disappointed in the styling and I believe Infiniti is going to be disappointed in their sales activity at these prices...Way too much sticker for this car...

I have a 2010 Max SV and I pulled up right behind the new M37 at the Infiniti dealership yesterday afternoon and there was a whole bunch of people looking at that and the EX35s around it as well
I had several people come up and look at my car and then the M and then looked confused and ask me if the car was the same ; I was like, well take a look at the Nissan emblems and you'll see the difference!
man did I get a kick out of that!

I saw them at my dealer when I got my oil changed on my G. Since having a baby a couple weeks ago, I'm looking for something a little bigger. The car is gorgeous, except for the cheap/small silver painted rims. I hope you can get the wheel(M56S) upgrade on the M37X and the M56X.
The only thing that shocked me was the MSRP, over $56K for the 37X. For some reason it seems higher than I remember. I looked at the M35/45 when I bought the G, and it wasn't that high. I priced a M56X and didn't like that you have to have a certain color interior with some packages.

Upgrading the rims to the Sport package rims is far from an inexpensive task. Premium package must go before any other upgrade. I too am not impressed with the 18" rims. Other than that and the very cheap looking painted inside door handles, the car is a winner. I'm only interested in the Base model and premium package which brings me to about 50 big ones. However, once the heavier discounting begins in a few months(after the 2010s are depleted), I'm sure this car can be had for the Mid 40s. If I wait till the end of the year the deep deep discounts will begin. This a sad economy and this is a relatively expensive car. The two don't go well together, which gives the advantage to the consumer if he can be patient. I love this car with what I think is the best interior to date for Infiniti.

I drove the car and liked it very much (not much to dislike about this car) The exterior says Maxima to me (not a bad think in my opinion) The interior was great I drove one loaded up with all the packages. The upgraded leather is great. I sat in one without the upgrade and I felt like I was sitting on sandpaper given how nice the upgraded leather was. I could not open the car up given a very limited test loop. Seems quick. The price however was a shocker the car I drove went for over 57k, That is a ton of money. They will need to do some serious discounting for this car to sell well (in my opinion)

I would guess that in a few months the heavier discounting will most likely begin. By the end of the year, it will probably be as substantial as the previous year end discounting which saw over $10,000 off of MSRP. The economy is in the Toilet and luxury cars get hurt the most. Now is not a good time to look for a deal.

Edmunds has alraedy posted a $1,000 incentive on the 2011 M and cars direct is selling the M37X with premium package for around $49,300. With the incentive and holdback the dealer cost for a M37X with Premium package would be around $47,000. I plan to wait this out, but the new M is definetly on "my list".

Mar 22, 2010 (4:57 pm)
Infiniti dealer offered me $2,800 off MSRP of $50,800 for an M37 with Premium Package (I currently do not own an Infiniti). I still think the discounting will increase once they fill their lots up as $50k+ cars arent flying off the shelves lately.

I took my 2rd ride yesterday - 2wd M37. Premium Package, wheat interior and Black Obsidian exterior. The car look much better in person IMHO and the interior is nicely done. It stickered for a little more than $52k. The ride was smooth and the cabin is very roomy. The seats are more comfortable than my M35S but the pick up is less pronounced than mine. Don't get me wrong the engine is powerful but the off the line power is better in my car. Car felt planted to the road even though it wasn't the sport model. I was really disappointed with the door handle and the fake looking aluminum piece that surrounded it, but everything else looked top notched. The wood grain was beautiful while the nav screen wasn't affected by the sun light like the current model. There are sensors all over the interior for "quality of air" control which was a pleasant surprise and the Bose system sounded better (this was not the 5.1 system). The car looks and fell bigger than my M35S but handled just as well.
All in all this look like a winner for Infiniti but I'm not quite sure the M56 will sell well at $65k on the sticker and $72k loaded.
