I took the plunge on the price I mentioned above. I went to two dealerships and they were both offering $3200 below invoice on the 2005 models.
The invoice on my new 2005 FX35 AWD with tech, touring, splash guard, & cargo area protect was $40,512. They would not budge on their price of $37,352. I really wanted AWD, tech, and touring and this was the only dealership within a 50 mile radius that had it.
In CA there are very few AWDs left. So I had to take it at this price. Overall still a very good price.
I have read that Infiniti's fiscal year ends in March so if you can hold out that long you maybe able to get a better deal. Even if you hold out until later this month would be a slight difference.

Thanks for the help. What dealership did you buy from in California? Should I get the 18" or 20" wheels, I live in Cincinnati area and we get snow in the winter. Heard the 18's do better in the snow. Would they also take 3200 off invoice for one with just the touring package?

I'd price a set of 20" tires... that should make up your mind for you...
They look nice.. but that is the only advantage..
Nice winter in Cincinnati this year, though... not many potholes...

I was in contact with Thousand Oaks infiniti first when they gave me the price of $3200 off invoice. I then emailed other dealerships and told them what I was looking for and that Thousand Oaks was giving me $3200 off invoice. Costa Mesa emailed back and gave me $3200 off invoice. They emailed me the MSRP and their invoice, Costa Mesa was very straight forward with me and I had a pleasant experience with them. I would think that they would give $3200 off just touring as well. They need to get rid of their old stock. I also heard that 18's do better in the snow.

ebuchholtz, Do you mind if I ask what % over invoice or % under MSRP did that turn out to be (not including tax and tags)?

Invoice was $36,555. So I guess that would be about 1% over invoice, if my math is correct. Hope this helps. Love the car, rides beautifully. The dealings with the dealer were pleasant, just had to stick to my guns.

The vehicle was RWD only, right? Did you compare RWD and AWD options? Does the RWD show better acceleration and any difference in handling?

Yes, it is RWD. Since I live in Florida and don't do much off road driving, felt the RWD was just fine. It supposedly gives a little better gas mileage and acceleraton.
