I'm at the tail end of my M35 lease and this time am going to buy, not lease. I like change and therefore have driven just about everything out there ... but keep coming back to another M35. I can't find "invoice" anywhere on line so I'm flying semi-blind in my negotiations. I also cannot get a clear answer about the application of the $2K loyalty money. Does that apply only to leases, or is it another $2K that I will receive off negotiated sales/purchase price? I believe it is applicable to both but the local dealer doesn't speak in simple declarative sentences. In all likelihood I will have to make my purchase in Phoenix where there are several Infiniti dealers ... v. only one here in Tucson.
Thanks for the help.

About that $2000 loyalty - I also can't seem to get a straight answer. ALL of the dealers in my area are saying it's good on a purchase ONLY. My lease on my M35x ends next month and dealers have been scrambling to get me to close on a G35x or EX35 this month. I was just about there, but I think I'll wait, rather than make a payment on a car I'll no longer have.
I kinda crossed the M off the list because it will be at least $100 MORE per month to lease than my payment now - unless of course, something drastic happens in June.
But if anyone can clarify the whole $2000 loyalty thing, I'd really appreciate it!

The $2,000 Loyality can be used for a lease or a purchase. I leased an 0 M35 sport / tech/ advanced tech three days ago. The dealer applied the 2,000 to reduce the cap cost and I walked out paying down only the first month and the taxes on the 2000 rebate.
For reference my monthly note is 625.00
The increase you are experiencing is all about the 61% residual ( down from 65% a few years back). Good Luck!

How much do you think I can get a fully loaded 2009 M45 premium package RWD for cash money under invoice? If the price is the same as the 2008 M45 premium RWD. MSRP is $61,270 don't know the invoice.

Why do you think you'll be able to buy an 09 M for less than invoice? The deals now are on the 08's to get them off the lots. The 09's will sell for normal over invoice prices for a while...at least until the 08's are gone.

chemichael: I just bought that very car yesterday. Using the $2K loyalty money I got it for $1,500 below invoice, or $500 above invoice before the $2K. That includes full window tinting (essential here in AZ) which is a $250 - $300 add-on. It happens to have been the last day of the month and two hours before closing time with no customers in sight. Whether that helped squeeze the price down ... or was simply coincidental ... I can't opine.
Hope that helps.

I was just wondering. Thanks for the input.
#769 of 1339 Observations on my new M
Jun 05, 2008 (12:38 pm)
I picked up my '08 M Monday ... when my '06 went off lease. I believe the A/C to be materially better than the '06. I didn't get the sport this time and am pleased with the softer and more quiet ride. Overall ... I'm a great fan of the M in all iterations. Bart
