Ok - this is where we are disconnecting. Yes, the money factor I was quoted at both Gold Coast and Fields is the same (.00229) This is based on my credit score which is over 720. It's the only lease factor infiniti is offering today on the 2009 FX.
This is why my monthly seems high but appears to be the going rate. Using your forumla above and it equals 5.5%.

I wonder if you go to www.leasecompare.com, maybe you can get a better rate since they are competitive. Do you have an FX35 or FX45? I would love to get a leftover 2008 FX45 for which they are offering 0% for 36 months. I found 21 nationwide. I am willing to travel if its worth it. Of course my current lease has to get paid off. I know of one at Ray Catena Infiniti in NJ thats being offered for $39900. Don't know if its sold or not.

I am driving an '06 FX35 (diamond graph) with Touring and Sports packages. It's my second FX35. My first was a 2005 (saphire) that drove like a tank. The '06 reengineered drive is soooo much better. And I looked throughout the leasecompare site but their rates weren't that good either. I think it's just the economy we are in now.

I regret not getting and FX 35 or FX 45 when I got the M 35 Sport.
So next one will definitely be an FX. I like the diamond graphite color, too bad they discontinued it. Sapphire Blue is also nice which is quite rare as I have only seen them at the dealership and never on the road.
I didn't think there was that much difference between 2005 and 2006 besides some cosmetic changes on the outside and revised instrument panel and some additional features.

Actually, there was A LOT of difference between the 03-05 models and the 06-08 series.
My 2005 truly drove like a truck. The 2006 model re-engineered the drive and everything was different. In a good way. Very tight, smallish control when driving my current 2006 FX. I never get tired of driving it! In addition to all of the redesigns on the interior, the early models are really apples compared to the later model oranges. Very different.
Sapphire was a great color but the Diamond Graphite is more practical. Although my 2005 Sapphire FX got more attention, the gray color hides almost any nick.

I love the FX35 but can't afford to fork over the dough for a brand new one. I found a low mileage (5,500 miles) 2008 FX35 and paid $29,500 at an Infiniti Dealer. It has every option except navigation. Seems like a decent price. Any thoughts on the price?

That is a very good price. I am sure if you negotiate, and tell him you will buy it right then and there (LOL), then ask for $28000. What color is it? Does it also have the sport pkg as well?Where are you located?
A dealer by me has a 2008 FX45 all options except rear DVD for $36K with 17K miles and a 2007 FX45 with all options including DVD for $34K with 11K miles.
I am sure with some negotiating one can knock maybe 2K off of that price. I know that is approx $6500 and $4500 difference in price, but if you can knock 2K off as stated, then it will be $4500 and $2500 in price. If you are able to swing that, it might be worth it.

Yes, AWD - Sapphire with the dark granite leather interior. Still has the remaining manufacturer warranty too.

well the dealer was listing it for $30,300 and I negotiated down to the $29,500. He had 4 2008 FX35s on his lot all with low miles..only one with the dark interior though..the others had the wheat interior. (I went to the dealer website recently and all have been sold) No sport package, but not disappointed about that - I test drove one with the sport package and preferred the ride of the one w/o it. I got it from a dealer near Chicago - drove a few hours to get there so I probably was a little more motivated to buy and not leave empty-handed. Probably why the dealer would not go below $29,500. Very happy with the FX, turns heads all over the place. Where I live there are no Infiniti dealers and I have only seen 1 or 2 other Fx's around the city.
