Infiniti looks too plain and worn out, BMW looks looks fierce. Love it.

I have my G37 for a couple more months. Initially when I looked at the pics I thought the Q50 was hideous. After watching videos I started to see how everything comes together. This is one hell of a beautiful car. The pics dont do it justice especially after first sight Kinda like the non m sport F30. After a while it really grows on you. All I can say is once the Infiniti bug bites, you will be very passionate about the Q50. I applaud them for taking bold design cues, but they have never messed up their cash cow. This will be a solid win for them. They will not beat the 3er in sales, they just have to watch out for the C Class and the ATS.

Great job Infiniti.

On a side note, if you think this is an Altima in any way, you have no idea how wrong you are This is a refined Nissan Z, and thats actually a compliment. Nissan FTW

Not bad. I like the interior of the Infiniti. For some reason I always felt like my F30 was lacking in the interior department. My biggest issue is the iPad stuck in the dashboard screen. I would like a little more of a cleaner design

Whats up with the stupid name change? Is Q "50" suppose to trick people to think its more high end? LOL

Exactly what I was thinking. The front end looks like the mouth of a whale shark. Just terrible.

In the pictures I prefer the exterior of the F30, but the interior is up for grabs. I'd like to see the Q50 in person. When I was shopping last spring the F30 interior left me uninspired.

The Infiniti actually looks decent...the front isn't all that hot, and I'm not feeling the glove box in the interior...but overall not bad. The BMW definitely looks better though...way more aggressive.

I think its looks really good. Certain aspects of the body look very similar to the 3 series. almost like it was copied a little. But still i think it looks really good.

Rear: F30 > Q50
Sides: F30 > Q50
Interior: F30 > Q50

The only thing i like with the Q50 is location of the side mirror on the window frame, compared to lexus and acura placing side mirrors on the door panels--ugly. But still i'll stick with the F30!

It seems that Asian car manufacturers must start considering to add something called "Design Department" to their facilities :-)

I'd go for the BMW over the Infiniti. Both are nice but the BMW is just better all around. BMW has the better interior IMO.

Side note: I think the Hyundai Genesis sedan looks very nice in all angles, but thats my opinion.
