Ookay, it's not Murano, but it IS Nissan...

Did anyone catch this pic of a Maxima?

(img now fixed)

Man, I wish they kept that grille and those tires. Hoo-ha.

That was really weird. Fixed it now.

The guy's site had a wonky cgi script displaying images. I guess he didn't allow off-site linking, hence the smiley guy.

Very :cool: Black Beauty................. I likey, but one of my pet peeves are the wheel rivets, I guess if I didn't have to clean them they'd be ok.

I didn't like the '04 Maxima when I first saw it - but it has slowly grown on me. I'd rather have a IS300 or an S4 - but in a pinch I'd take a new Max.

Looks a lot better with that traditional "slat" grille instead of the bubble thing they are putting on the 2004 nissan sedans. The slat grille reminds me of the VW Passat's grill.

Not only are the wheels/rotos/calipers PS'd, but there is a PS error on the right front tire. Otherwise, it looks very clean with that setup.

I still look at the new Maxima and wonder how they can take a body style that's so similar to the beautiful G35 and make it so ugly. I can't stand the Tooth and the Marty Feldman lights at the bottom that look like misplaced fog lights. From the side, (except for the front end) I quite like the car. The back end isn't so hot and frankly I think the Altima's a hotter looking car.

Having been in a 4th Gen Max and loving it (except for the hideous taillights) I was looking forward to the new Max. The new styling is part of what drove me to the Murano and even made me consider an Altima for a fraction of a second. If it wasn't the need for the addtional space, I'd probably be in a G35, not a Maxima.

But hey, we've all got different tastes. I still think the new Max is a kick A ride, just needs a new face... Drove a friend's and the drive will make you forget the looks....:15: :27:
