I know grubbs internet manager was quoting $770 over invoice on FX35 2003 with sport package, but Grubbs didn't have any premiums in black. Austin Infiniti had 3 2003 white premiums, I think all with 0 miles. Not sure what you would pay there. If you go to grubbsinfiniti.com you can see what they have available but last time I checked they didn't have any premiums in black.
I ended up testing and buying a 2003 with sport package as I liked the sport handling better in black/graphite.

Did not know your price included TTL if so you did do very very well.
I would go with grubbs all the way. I drove from Houston to buy from them and couldn't be happier.
#126 of 1807 loca dealer won't match other advertised dealer prices
Nov 28, 2003 (10:51 am)
I'm in the Columbus OH area. I took an add from a dealer around Boston to my local dealer, who wouldn't match the other dealer's advertised price. In fact, they told me that the ad price was below what they paid. The ad price was $35999 for an AWD 35 with Touring pkg. The best they could do at the local dealers (Columbus and Cincinnati)was $37k. I've even called the Mass. dealer to confirm they had these in-stock. Is it worth a trip to Boston to save $1k ?

Try the "North End" for some of the best authentic Italian around. Check out the Freedom Trail, Old Ironsides, and Faneil Hall (sp?). Lots of people travel to Europe to pick up their BMWs, why not Boston for an Infiniti?
#128 of 1807 best time to buy
Nov 28, 2003 (7:17 pm)
I'm shopping for an FX 04/35 and wondering when I could get the best price. I felt after the holidays in Jan. would be good as the demand would be less but I recall one sales manager who said the pressure was on from infiniti to make sales so I'm wondering if before year-end would be the best time to bargain with them?

I would say that when you account for current rates and the fact that a lot of people either made new car purchases last year or are waiting for the economy to turn around, now is a great time to buy.
Make an offer and if they don't take it just walk out and return again next month. I doubt they will let you leave without buying for a great price - no matter what day it is.

My apologies, I didn't realize this included TTL. Your deal was just fine then. I bought mine in early October before 04's were out and paid 35,200 w/premium,splash guards and cargo mat before TTL. Mine was FX35, RWD. Not a great deal but good enough.

Sorry for the delay. I contacted these dealers:
1. Park Ave Infiniti in Englewood NJ - Closest to my house but full of all the wrong information. In fact they called me last week to inform me that Infiniti had just told them that 2004's would not be out until next year. I checked their inventory and they had one in stock (go figure).
2. Ramsey Infinity, Ramsey NJ - They give you high prices and say "That's a very aggressive price!", I just smiled and walked.
3. Lynnes Infiniti, Bloomfield NJ - Offered me $1000 over invoice but never could confirm invoice was.
4. Kings Infiniti, Brooklyn NY - They seemed willing to deal but did not have the car in stock. I guess timing and location didn't work out.
5. Pepe Infiniti, White Plains NY - I can't remember what my experience was with them, they probably were not very competitive. There are 3 other dealers that also fall into this category: Atlantic Infiniti, Lynbrook NY; Douglas Infiniti, Summit NJ; and Infiniti of Massapequa.
6. Ray Catena Infiniti, Edison NJ - I had the best rapport here and ended up buying from here. One thing that they said that raised my suspicions is that Edmunds invoice prices don't factor in some advertising costs passed onto them by infiniti. They claim that the advertising adds another ~$600. Does anyone have any independent information that can either confirm or refutes this claim.

What he told you is correct. The ad fee is there on every infiniti and varies by region. Check carsdirect.com invoice for your zip and the invoice there should match the dealer.
