Hi glennmavis - the question of whether to buy now or not is one only YOU can answer - are you eager to have the updates on the 2006, or are you happy to buy the 2004, with its current styling and features? How long do you intend to keep the vehicle? We'll be happy to help you out with specific questions, like what features you can get in each model, and resale values, though. Just let us know what you're looking for in a vehicle.
To see what other in your area are paying for the '04, please check our Infiniti M45 Detail Page, or you can post a question in our discussion called Real-World Trade-In Values.

You should be looking at $7000 off MSRP at least. Make sure you're going to keep it. I got a 2003 M45 stickered at $47455 for $37455. Due to circumstances I had to give it up 9 months later. The best offer I got on it was $33500. It is a great car but only at the right price.

I would really suggest waiting. There are HUGE differences from the old car to the new, they go much deeper than new sheetmetal. Even if you can stomach the current cars looks, or complete lack thereof, if you're looking for sport, it basically doesnt deliver. I would suggest a late model 540i if you've got to have a car right this minute.

Yes - very disconcerting - that's why I go in a few time a day, entering various US zip codes, and select only the 'cheapest' model. I assume they are (over)paying marketing firms to collect ths crap, so I believe it is the average Cro-Magnon's duty to make that data as useless as possible. Notice that the changes always occur in the base price, and yes - the swings are too erratic. I agree with the guy who said that the 2005 RL and 2005 GS pricing will keep Infiniti pricing within historic parameters.
In my region, the 2004 GS300 would be a lot cheaper than these Infiniti M prices. Love Infiniti, but not that much. And you really can't ignore depreciation - despite some posters trying to argue that the 'Ghosn Infinitis' are 'different'. They aren't - not when up against Lexus, BMW or the guys from Stuttgart - what you 'overpay' up front, you get on the back-end (if you can keep the Germans out of the shop).

Last week, I spoke with the Infiniti sales person. He told me that he could offer me $8,000.00 off from MSRP now, and it will be $10,000.00 off with 1.9% APR in few months. I will purchase 2004 model end of October. Please give us update if anyone finds good deals on 2004 model.

Anyway, when does this car hit the showrooms?

Not too interesting if the pictures do the cars justice. The GS looks ugly and bloated and like it was designed by a committee. The Infiniti inside and out looks athletic and muscular, and will have performance to match.

Well appearance doesn't always tell you a car's personnality. You can have an inofensive looking car that can beat up (in terms of performance, etc.) other cool looking cars that everybody would have thought better.
