I never said an infinity can't be fun to drive, I'm sure it is. I don't think it turns heads, though, except maybe yours and other infinity owners. Granted a stock 540i won't either, but with a few mods it sure can.

This is a BMW forum, so of course you are going to get people who prefer the looks BMW over inifinity. Pop over to an infinity board and they'd probably trash the E39 as being ugly, old, expensive, all about prestige/ego, etc. Of course the general population prefers BMWs, so it is a smaller crowd you're catering to.

More to the point, I was trashing the rims on the infinity White E39 posted. Your rims looks good. I'd happily enter your car, but wouldn't think it is particularly cool. I'd be embarassed to get in the infinity posted by White E39, and I think most here would agree!
