Sales for Nissan's upscale Infiniti division in the United Arab Emirates skyrocketed in the first quarter, up 183 percent year-over year. Of course, total sales over the same period were just 552 units, but there's reason for optimism: sales have more than doubled each year for the past couple of years (the brand was re-launched in the region in 2004), and the advent of the new M in the marketplace is expected to continue the trend.

      So, tariq, what Toyota dealer do you work for? The comments I am hearing about Infiniti vehicles are overwhelmingly positive - along the lines of Stoneman's comments. The M-class rocks!

      An interesting fact. I was speaking with a friend of mine at work, who is from Egypt. He told me the most popular brand of car for prestige is the Mercedes-Benz "E" class. Yes. And he said it costs $200 USD to rent such a car for a day (driver included of course). People really like Mercedes-Benz. Infinity is a really unknown brand. Personally, I never knew how good it is until I slipped behind a G35 a month ago. Oh God it was good.
