The 2009 will not be out until the very end of 2009 giving you 2 years to bridge until that model comes out. My dealer told me that is why they are offering such a good lease on the FX35 right now. I also understand that the lease price goes up substantially from 24 to 36 months. I was told that the 2009 will have the technology missing on the 2008 like the hard drive navigation, the park assist camera and the lane assist technology on the new EX35 as well as a few other goodies offered on the current G35.
The Lexus... no comparison. If you want pure luxury then Lexus may be your type of vehicle, but if you want a sportscar ride (which I assume you do coming from the G35 coupe) then the FX35 is your choice. The FX is luxurious and has all kinds of neat toys but the ride is a little stiff as compared to the Lexus' quiet, smooth ride. Besides, everyone has a Lexus RX, they are everywhere on the road and are quite boring in my opinion. I priced and drove every vehicle in the crossover category and the FX35 won hands down for overall performance/ameneties.
Turning in leases differs so much between car makes. I have been fortunate to have never had a bad cosmetic problem. I just turned in a BMW 325 and the end-of-lease checkoff sheet was quite pricey for dings and scratches, but this is my first time leasing from Infiniti. Only time will tell.
#871 of 1701 need some info quickly if anyone has it
Dec 23, 2007 (9:32 pm)
I am looking for an FX35AWD, Hands Free, Touring and Tech package. Cars direct has MSRP: $46,315, Invoice Price: $42,297, Target Price: $39,997. Edmunds has MSRP: $46,260, Invoice Price: $42,242, TMV Price: $46,110. I am in Nassau County, New York, Sales Tax 8.625. Looking for 12,000 miles per year. What is the best deal should I expect?
What is the current money factor (I am seeing .000140), what is the residual (I am seeing 67%). Are these numbers close? Are there any other incentives or discounts? For the record, I am looking to write as small a check when I drive off as possible. I am also hoping to finish this deal before the first of the year.
Thanks in advance for any help.

sounds like you have the current deal down pack (money factor 0.0001 and residual 67%). I know of no other incentives right now for leasing an FX35...If you want to see my deal to compare, it is posting #823... I think I got a really good deal and if you can get the cap cost around $300 over invoice you are doing good. Of course to minimize the down payment, the monthly payment is liable to go up like mine ($599/month for everything but sports package with $2200 down). I think your tax rate is higher so that will add onto the payment. Good luck and JUST DO IT, you won't regret it... I had another vehicle on order and got my deposit back after one test drive of the FX. And the good thing about this current 2 year lease, you will be turning this FX in at the end of 2009 when the new 2009 model is expected (at least that is what my dealer said)...

I am in the market too and am bouncing around between Acura RDX, BMW X3 and similar. I received very aggressive lease quotes last week from a NY dealer which is pretax $383/month 24 months 10K/year on an FX-35 AWD with Touring and Handsfree. A local dealer says Infiniti does not offer factory leases with 10K, although I have seen that mileage posted on another website. He claims it is with an independent leasing company that is really difficult on damage at End of lease.
But with the marketing support I am seeing on Carsdirect I think the higher priced dealer is giving me the bull.
And how do I compare that to the Infiniti deal that is advertised on this site which is $399 plus a downpayment of $3250.
Anyone know who is giving me the bull?

that is very funny to read your post. you have the same exact choice of car that i m looking for. i saw the acura rdx and didnt like it in person. it didnt have any personality. it felt like a regular small cross over suv. the bmw is nice but seen a bit small. and the fx35 is the most attractive so far. its a beautiful small suv. love how it handles. great power, and it comes with every toy i want. i need to stay around 450$ if i can.

The X3 handles the best between the X3, the RDX and the Lincoln MKX (LOL) which is like riding on a pillow. But the cockpit and interior of the X3 is dated and is like driving my 2001 BMW 530. It is also more expensive than the others. The Acura drive well but is noisy when starting from a full stop.
I have not yet driven the FX35 but have read good things about it.
