According to Edmunds, the MSRP of the car you are getting is $49000 and the cost is $44,628. Since the 2007's are expected out in less than 30 days, one would expect some discount of the 2006 M35...let's say the dealer gets a $1000 profit over cost (I've included transportation in the cost already).
Based on the June infiniti rates, the car on a 24 month lease (15K) should cost you about $590 per month plus tax. (the 24 month is the cheapest lease right now).
It would appear that if your credit is good, you are being asked to pay too much on a monthly basis.
I would suggest going back to the dealer and negotiating a better purchase price . Then have the dealer apply the infinity leasing plan numbers to the deal. Good luck.... You can find the infinity leasing rates and residuals in the M35 lease forum right here...

What is VPP?

VPP is Vehicle Purchase Program, it's a program that is usually offered to corporate employees, and other groups, I can utilize it from my employer. My plan offers a discount off MSRP. Good if you are not into digging into the numbers and negotiating. IMO you can do better on your own.

I live in Atlanta and leased an M45 Sport last week w/ Technology and Journey. My lease payment is $712.00 including tax, with $2K due at signing, 39 month lease, 12K miles per year. Hope this helps someone negotiate a fair deal.
#449 of 1339 Extended warranty prices?
Jun 22, 2006 (12:13 pm)
Does anyone know the MSRP and Dealer invoice on the different extended warranty plans that Infiniti offers? They only show one option on their website - 7 years/100k miles, but I'd be surprised if there aren't other options available.
If you bought one, what did you pay and for what terms?
I have an '07 on order that's coming in in a few weeks, just trying to have as much info as possible before I get the hard sell from the dealership!
Thanks for any info.

Hi! I'm new to this forum. I currently drive a G35 but was helping a friend
negotiate on an M35 sport w/tech/journey/factory aero kit. They were able to
move this unit for a total of 51K OTD. I also started with the internet and only
continued negotiations over the phone. The key this time was getting a VPP
authorization. When I bought my G35 Premium/Sports/Spoiler/Underbody Diffuser, I
paid 33K OTD without VPP. This was in Sept 2004 and the 2005 was on its way out
with some minor cosmetic improvements. Adding the manufacturer to dealer
incentives, they were able to drop the price down that time. So if the 2007 are
on its way, then the end of the month is a good option. If you can get a VPP,
then the dealerships may be able to work with you and sell you the vehicle and
maybe do better than VPP. This one came out to be under the "invoice" price.
Haggling does have its rewards if you're patient. I avoided going into the
dealership to haggle because this will just cause grief and misery with nothing
accomplished. At least if it happens over the phone you didn't waste your time
driving over to the dealerships. If you're in So Ca, I went over to the Santa
Monica Infiniti. Hope you're able to find your
car. This wasn't even my car but I learned a little more about car buying from
this experience. Good luck.

Don't you have to be a Nissan employee or have a friend or family member who's a Nissan employee to get a VPP authorization?
