    DUDE I think you are on to something. From the looks of it they also stole the HEADRESTS and SEATBELTS and CARGO NET COVER oh my god they stole like all the features from the F50! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? It's a fucking TABLE bentley and jag and mbz have been using them for a GRIZZOP if you think nissan made the adjustable rear table you've got be joking.

    El presidente has those tables in his Jag and his jag came out way before the PGF50 President.

    Hes right, RR and Bentley has been using tables as well for decades.

    i meant american car industries.

    and they even got the rear vanity mirrors and shit

    yea i figured, since design of the table was exact. well that one cooled me off, but the rest still remains.

    Listen vezoopnoogens, you can rest easy tonight knowning that orginaility in the automotive industry ended 20 years ago, everything since then has been recycled over and over again. That infiniti is just a recycled lexus which is a recycled mercedes which is a recycled vashtoopenvagen and so on and so on I dunno why but that fold forward seat makes me think of lesbians, I guess its just the most logical use of space for me :shrug:

    PS - My roommates old ass buick had rear lit vanity mirrors in the rear. NOTHING is original. At least nothing nissan makes :p

    EDIT: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1962...201643555QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item280201643555

    1962 and that mutha has tables and shiz in the rear.

    And you drive an acura tl...you don't drive any car that resembles a pg50...why would this irk you? It's not like you have any motive, other than you 'think' they are copying the president. More like they decided to add fold out tables. BFD. Quit crying and get over it.

    Hehe...I love my tables. BTW...they made inferior copies. Mine are Walnut burlwood the whole way through..not just plastic with wood laminate. My model also had the option of heated reclining rear seats (still looking for some to buy for mine...they are nearly impossible to find, but I do have the rear heated seats). You'll see copying everywhere. The Japanese have been copying Europe forever..what goes around comes around. Jaguar has had rear tables since...well, these are from the 50's:

    OK, WE all have a passion for JDM stuff....cooh

    I like JDM stuff just like everyone else but dont get it twisted, we are Americans and it really isnt cool to bash our own country.


    on a side note...the interior looks good...too bad the exterior looks like ass =)

    car companies have been copying and/or tweaking each others ideas for decades, and will continue to do so in perpetuity. There's a lot more in life to be upset about if you ask me.

    I guess the clowns on NICO who've been calling the Y33 & F50 a Japanese Buick all this time were right.

    Like others have said, rear tray tables have been in luxury cars for 50 years or more.

    Imitation is the highest form of flattery. For those that hven't heard that before, that phrase has been around for centuries. Also, if you don't think Nissan doesn't do it.... Check the kouki grill on a Y33 to a Benz grill
