Yes, the M35 won that comparo a couple of months ago. I have the issue somewhere around here.

Good showing for the new M. Hopefully that will translate into huge sales for Infiniti.

Probably wasn't available at time of the test.

It's funny how both Motor Trend and Car and Driver have ranked the new M as #1 in comparison tests but that Edmund's test ranked it last...I don't want to restart a war, I just think it's an interesting point.

I think Edmunds needs to pull their heads out of their assphalt and wake up.

My salesman said that it was because MT didn't feel that the GS fit the "sport" designation for the review.

That's totally BS!

No joke BS. What's the GS supposed to be, a LUXURY car? No - it's a sports luxury car.

Excuses. Lexus LOST. Period.
