Not bad, looks a bit like an Infiniti Q45 from the front,



And totally bites the VW Pheaton from the rear... I believe most VWs are also getting this similar rear end across the board for the new generation.

My suspicions were correct.. the entire center console is straight from the Aurora.

Definitly a resemblance to the Maxima with the front end. But it looks great.

The chrome around the shifter is rectangular instead of oval. Other than that they're identical besides the color of the wood used. Heated seat buttons are in the same spot, the traction control button, and the ashtray cover are identical. Look where the console is seperated on the Aurora.. it'* the same spot it ends on the Lucerne too.
