My buddy and I went to check out the Murano for his wife. He is waiting delivery of his m3 convertible. Yes, he has money. Great guy though. The sales guy mentions he has the newest Maxima, an 04 model and says we have never seen this puppy before. He rolls it out and OH MY GOD!!!! Simply gorgeous. A bit g 35 mixed with 7 series bimmer. QUAD SEATS!!!!! A console in the back so it is like you are in a cockpit even in the back seats. I can't do it justice, simply magnificant. I split in my rex and my buddy takes the maxima out with the sales guy. At a light I tell the guy if the maxima beats me I will buy one right away. I am waiting for the STI but figured if the maxima beats my modded rex, it would also beat the sti. Anyways we pull ont he highway and my buddy hammers it with me behind him. I won't be buying the Maxima but it was really really close. It was an auto vs my manual. I pulled on him on the highway right to about 110 MPH and then I let off. I was not pulling by much. That car is FAST. Forget a stock rex on the highway, it won't have a chance against this thing. No question. If you are looking for a nice looking fast sedan for a second driver, go check this baby out.
PS The sales guy was having the time of his life. My buddy said he was talking about it in the showroom after, talking about these two crazy idiots racing the cars!! Both of us in our late 30's in suits....toooo funny!!
