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.

What dealership in Chicago? Sapphire with graphite interior is such a nice color. Believe it or not, I have only seen that color at the dealership and never on the road.
You got a good deal and best of luck with it! Would it be possible to post a picture of it?

The dealership is Infiniti of Lisle. www.theinfinitisuperstore.com or www.infinitioflisle.com. I could try to post a pic - how do you do that on this website? I don't see an attach option.

That is where I purchased by 2006 M35 Sport over 2 years ago. They have a very good service department. You are right, I don't think there is a way to post pics here.
Off topic: When I got the car, I purchased the tire/wheel warranty for $400 which is worth it. I had a nail in the sidewall of the tire (19" Bridgestone Potenza RE050s). I got it replaced for free. BTW, purchasing tires at Infiniti of Lisle is cheaper than the Tire Rack.

If the 2008 FX you bought has no Sports package and no navigation package, what does it have? Just AWD?
If that's the case, your price is good but not astoundingly great. Sounds like you have a base AWD model. Right?

Yeah it's the base AWD. The base still comes pretty loaded with standard features. I have searched the used car listings online and seems like my price is pretty good. I was just making sure that people didn't think I paid too much based on what they knew about 08 prices.

Lisle Infiniti emailed me this response to my inquiry regarding leasing a 2009 FX35:
I apologize for the delay in the my response. A the moment there isn't a "pull forward" program being offered by Infiniti for existing lease customers. We do have a $2000 owner loyalty bonus towards leasing. I did run a lease quote on a FX a/premium and navi today. With $5000 down, $2000 loyalty and $3000 from customer, the payment was right around $650mo. I would recommend riding out your lease until the new '09 programs deflate a little bit. I will be sure to keep you updated on our monthly specials.
He didn't include the Deluxe packge but that was part of my request. 3k out of pocket and he is stil at $650. It's the APR issue. 5.4% will do it.

3k out of pocket is a lot! $650 a month is alot but as u stated, the interest rate matters. I wonder how much it would be to buy it. If you get it at $300 above invoice, then take $4K off for loyalty.
BTW, at what price was the lease payment based on? At least they told you that waiting for better deals would be the best thing.
I guess I will hold onto my lease for another year before turning it in. Maybe in a year, we can see huge discounts on the FX50. BTW, Luxury motors has FX50 for 3K off sticker so with owner loyalty to buy would be another 4K off and this is without any negotiations. The msrp was 60K-7K= $53K. This was a lightly equipped model so no tech or sports or rear entertainment package. I did call them and they said they can take 3K off sticker price of FX50s in stock. I did not mention I am a current Infiniti owner either.

I am seriously looking at a $2009 FX 350 and from Infiniti site with the following trims, the MSRP is $55,569
The invoice cost from edmonds.com is
I do not have loyal rebate but looking for the best deal. I looked at 09 RX and 09 MDX but think the FX is more sporty.
Thinking about USD USD 45K before T&L, Registration fees. Anyone out there think this is reasonable? I am from Los Angeles. Thankyou.
