An informal dialogue conducted by the editors of Autoweek hashes out the pros and cons of Infiniti's midsize luxury sport sedan, the M45. The biggest plus is that you can pick up an M45 with a 340-hp V8 and all the trimmings for about $46,000. The M's main detractor is its competition— it's not easy to keep up with the likes of the BMW 5-series, Audi's A6, MB's E-class and the Lexus GS line. Diverse and often opposing opinions fly about the polarizing vehicle: the central debate rages  over the M's character, or lack thereof— while some editors found the car inherently charismatic and fun to drive, others feel that while it is a relative bargain, it seriously lacks the panache exhibited by its competitors.
