Underappreciated Late Model: 2003 Infiniti M45

The Infiniti lineup from a few years ago was an interesting alternative to BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Acura, or Lexus and it was clear with prefix of G, M, Q or QX which kind of car you were looking at. But in the early 2010 era the product planners at Infiniti changed every car to be a Q, with a maddening array of vehicles named Q50 QX55 QX70 Q99 — that all look like they’ve been produced from the same ugly bloated whale carcass shaped tooling dies. Gone are the days when Infiniti made stylish luxury cruisers like the Y34 generation M45. This is hands down the best looking sedan to come out of Japan in the past 20 years. Today’s example looks in good shape cosmetically but hasn’t run in a few months. Find this 2003 Infiniti M45 offered for $2500 in Mill Valley, CA via craigslist.
