    I bought one of these this weekend and just wanted to share some pics. [​IMG] My wife and I were looking for something to replace our BMW 323ci with more room and easier in and out for our 6 month old son and his car seat. 315 HP and I love the looks of it. You've got to see it in person to really appreciate it. It also has a real nice interior and handles like a sports car. Here's the pics!

    Very, VERY nice... the styling is very 'love it or hate it', i love it...

    The FX45 has HUGE amounts of power compared to the 35, from what I read in car and driver [​IMG] They praised this car a lot.

    Congrats on the purchase!

    Congrats ... Nice, sharp car. I like the new interiors on the Nissan/Infiniti line a lot.

    Good luck with it!

    Nice vehicle, but for that type of money I'd rather wait and get the upcoming Lexus RX400H hybrid SUV that is coming out late next Spring. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    One thing I don't like about Infiniti/Nissan interiors is the way the controls are laid out on the front panel it does take some getting used to. [​IMG]

    Awesome buy Tim, how big is the interior compared to other SUVs? More like an Explorer or Rav4?

    Love this car, the only thing I don't like is the that the railights extend out from the body!

    Carl- The September issue of Motor Trend had a comparison article with a Mercedes ML350, Lexus RX 330, and the FX35. Even with the V6 version, the FX had the most power, was the fastest, the cheapest, and had best styling. The Lexus had the best interior quality and the Benz came in last.

    Here's the article.

    I hope you don't plan on trying on racing any new M3s in it. There are several people who live in my neighborhood or on my way to school that have 45's (I hate soft-roaders on principle, but I have to admit the black FX45 looks good. like some kind of weird space beetle or something; in a good way) who have tried to race me. I'm not really sure what they were thinking, but whatever.

    Tim, what profession are you in? I'm in college and need some ideas on stuff to do that pays enough for me to drive a Corvette to work everyday!

    I think it's an excellent vehicle - I like it!

    I'm a previous owner of an X5 4.4i Sport, so that means a lot coming from me. [​IMG] It's faster than the X5 4.4i, and costs the same if not less than the X5 3.0i.

    Van Patton - I'm a Computer Programmer. I don't know if I'd recommend that as a career choice though. Jobs are pretty scarce right now.

    I was looking at the FX and the Lexus RX330, and the Infiniti hands down absolutely kills the Lexus in exterior styling. I thought however the Lexus blew it away as far as the interior goes...and I am an interior kinda guy. [​IMG] (The Lexus is no slouch on exterior looks either, but the Infinit is so unique and beutiful---wish I could have the best of both worlds in a car and not just on a Star Trek TNG DVD [​IMG] ) So, I am getting an RX330 in a few months. [​IMG][​IMG] I was in a 1997 Eddie Bauer Explorer that I no longer have, it was beautiful and oh so comfy, but it was wrecked and now I have a 2002 EB Explorer and it pales in comaprison to the 97 model IMHO...The Lexus ought to bring back those warm and fuzzy feelings I had in the '97 Ford.

    Gee, I'm a computer programmer and I bike to work every day. One day Tim, when you're in the neighborhood, I'll race your Corvette at rush hour! [​IMG]

    Ya know, I just realized this, that in a few models down the road, when Infinity releases an FX85, they'll share the model name with my old 9-pin Dot Matrix Epson FX85 that I had for my C64 many moons ago!
