#1041 of 1339 My New 2006 M45 Sport- My new Dream Car...Good Deal and Media question?
Jul 19, 2009 (5:41 am)
Hello All, glad to see all you enthusiasts online.
I just bought a used 2006 Infiniti M45 Sport with ever single option except the wood trim and XM radio. I just love this car.
Background if you are interested or please see questions at the bottom: (forgive the Metric System & Canadian dollar numbers for my USA friends):
I have been driving older(+5 years) Cadillac’s as my last 3 cars, usually get them for under $12k out-right. $65k+ canadian new. Drive for 4 years then replace. Works out to about $3300-$3500 a year including repairs.
This time I had a few nickels to buy a little more car and was only look at the 2006 Caddy CTS and STS. I expanded my search to include Infiniti after reading all the used car reviews. The Infiniti had many more options and upgrades. After weeks of test drives… I found a 2006 Silver Infiniti M45 Sport with 66k_km for $26,400 plus tax from a dealership. Including new tires and like-new brakes replaced at 59K. More than I wanted to spend but so much more car ($71k new in 2006 woo hoo! $80k when you include the tax) Just love it.
2 Questions please:
i) Did I really get a good deal? Car was traded in after 4 year from single owner.
ii) I hooked up my Blackberry Storm to Bluetooth phone…Can I use my Blackberry to play music I have stored on it through the stereo? (or even hook up with connection cable).
Happy to be part of the Infiniti Family. I have found my new home.

I have 4 months left in my FX35 lease and considering all the cash incentives and that this would be my 4th Infiniti, thinking of seeing if I would be able to get a new M35x with all the incentives and Infiniti just "forgiving" the last 4 months payments. I have a history of turning in leases early and paying for it somehow (and swore I would not do it this time), so wanted to see what's happening out there so I could have some ammunition when I go to the dealer.

You may want to try the M45X.I have about 1500 miles on the vehicle and it is a great ride.Looks conservative,has all the toys(premium package) and is faster than my muscle car of the past.

Nothing has changed as far as "I" know. Unless you can get Infiniti to forgive your balance, your payoff is-what-it-is and releasing now means rolling the balance into your new lease or paying off the balance in cash.
Wait the four months, it won't kill you and you'll be able to find killer left over end-of-year deals around Thanksgiving. Go in the day after

Would you folks kindly let me know how much is m35 08 sport packaged loaded with ~7K miles worth. Dealer asking for 41.5K, is this too much
according to several sources, it should only be around 36K.
thanks & kind regards

Could you advise of how and where you were able to get an aftermarket nav for your 2007 m35.
#1049 of 1339 2006 Infiniti M35 -- good deal?
Aug 05, 2009 (11:34 am)
I just bought a beautiful black on black 2006 Infiniti M35 with 53k miles from an independent dealer. It has every option (tech, nav, dvd player, etc) and was well taken care of (previously leased).
I paid $19,500, which seems like a good deal but wanted to bounce it off you guys.
I was looking at a used G37 but after driving/cruising comfortably in my M, don't feel like I'm missing out too much...

I believe you got a good deal if the car is still under warranty - even just for 2 month, so you can check everything out and have the dealership taken care of any defect, or get an extended warranty.
If it is out of basic warranty, I would still have the dealership check it out thoroughly to make sure power train is perfectly fine.
Other than that, keep the regular maintenance and you should be able to enjoy your M for a long, long time.
