You are in the Infiniti Q45
What is this discussion about?
Infiniti Q45, Sedan
#298 of 975 1994 Q45 Black/Tan?
Apr 24, 2001 (3:24 pm)
I am getting ready to list my 1994 Infiniti Q45 and I am not sure how to price the car. The car is in excellent condition inside and out…..Even the stitching inside the car is still white and not discolored.
The car was mostly driven on weekends because I used my other car during the week
I also added an aftermarket stereo system (Kenwood Excel head unit, Kenwood 6 disc changer, MTX amp and Polk Audio speakers) as well as a viper alarm system…..The car only has 64,000 miles on it and I had the wheels from a 1995 Q45 put on the car.
When I looked up the price on KBB it came to $16,134, but that was without the upgrades I made to the car. How much should I factor the cost of the aftermarket upgrades? I spent over $2000 for everything (Stereo, Alarm, Wheels)
I am thinking that $15,500 would be a fair price?
I know that older Q45's are rare to find.
Please tell me what you think?
Any info would be greatly appreciated,
#301 of 975 lookin' better .....

The looks of the new Q have grown on me too, I like the car more every time I see it. For me, the options packages should be re-thought.......I wish that the sport model did not mandate the smoke wood trim. Meanwhile, Titanfan definately has some hostility towards Infiniti. His Edmunds profile says he owns an Infiniti GS and he wants a Mercedes QX4. He is an expert?.........hmm????

Don't let them get under your skin, Titanfan. I've also been searching for a Mercedes-Benz QX4. I thought I found one the other day, but it turned out to be a Pontiac Aztek . . . they do look a lot alike.
#303 of 975 ordered one

Well, I test drove the Q again this weekend. I literally liked it even more this time around. It seemed faster this time too! The dealer invited me to place an order for a Q that fits my color and equipment specs with no obligation, so I did! I will see if I want it when it comes in. Unfortunately, I fear that the gas prices may make me consider something a bit more fuel efficient. At these skyrocketing prices, I am beginning wonder whether I want to feed a 340 hp V8!

Saw my first new one on the road. I can say that I like the looks better than the LS430. For $10,000 or less than the Lexus, it's going to give it a run for the money. I'm considering one, but am reticent, with the price of gas, to buy now. Also, they'll be dealing better if I wait.
#305 of 975 deals

Due to the economy and gas prices I do not think that the launch of the new car has taken off with respect to sales. I get the impression that some dealing can be done on the new Q, which really makes it a huge bargain compared to the Lexus. I think if you shop a bit, a base car can be had for under 50k right now.....That is a lot of car for the money.
#306 of 975 Bring people to Infiniti Dealer
May 16, 2001 (3:58 pm)
One excuse I often heard from Nissan/Infiniti enthusiasts regarding why Lexus sells more cars than Infiniti is that people never heard of Infiniti, and once they test drive one, "they'll understand". So, there needs to be more effort to bring people to the Infiniti Dealership.
But, yet, I, as a prospective customer who visited the dealership around the car launch date, and was promised a call so that I can pick up the brochure when it's available, I have yet to hear anything from the salesman.
I got the brochure by ordering it off the web.
Thanks Pxxxxxxxx Infiniti of Rxxxxxx Cxxx, California. (I think it used to be called Sxxx Infiniti. And I heard from freshalloy.com that they had some problem with the FBI in the past, that's why the name change. I think it might be of using of customer credit info fraud or something like that).
If it were the Lexus dealership next door, the salesman would have written me a letter thanking me for my visit, etc.
#307 of 975 98 Q45T - Any comments?
May 17, 2001 (7:33 am)
I am looking to buy a used Q this summer (98 Q45T). I don't know anyone who owns one so any comments on this car? (e.g. how you liked the car, its strengths/weaknesses, etc)
