You were very kind to help set me up, but things did not go as planned and now I am in turmoil. I went to the Tysons guys in Northern Virginia where they have the most inventory in the region. Several bad things happened. First, I actually spent some time in the cockpit of the car plus driving and found myself disappointed. I know everybody loves this car (and well they should), but I am coming from an M35X. The G37 just seems more cramped (smaller navigation screen, less personal storage, etc) and far less luxurious---lots of hard, cold surfaces. Plus, I had forgotten how modern engines (I used to own vintage MGB-GT's) put the driver much lower versus the hood. It is a matter of taste, I know. Secondly, the one car that intrigued me the most was a red one with the wood interior package. The only wood interior on the lot and the only one in the Mid-Atlantic as far as I can judge by websites. But the dealership had just sold that car to a New York dealer. So, there is some info for you---no wood is left in East Coast 2009 dwindling inventory. Finally, the pricing for this lease was surprisingly not competitive with my Maryland dealership on the G37. This dealership seemed to imply that Infiniti (or at least this dealership) is not worried about moving out their 2009s, so there are no heroic lease supports.
So here is where I stand in chaos. The clock is ticking on my 2008 M35X lease expiration at end of month. I can go with a good lease on this G37x from my current dealer, which is probably just over $600 per month with my high mileage. I can keep my M35x and find financing, but I have some tires and brake/rotor costs ahead of me. There are some 2009 M35x's around and I could consider a new lease on one of those. I could look at 2010 M35's, but the pricing is way up and the car is essentially the same as its prior year models. Finally, I am considering the Hyundai Genesis, which is much the same car as the M35 for a $10k or more reduced sticker price. I know it is sacrilegious to say this, but I wish the G37 was better appointed. With high mileage, I spend a lot of time cruising from town to town as opposed to performance driving. I had thought of the G37 as the sport version of the M35, which in unfair because I think some aspects of the interior are built into the great pricing relative the Lexus and other competition. Driving/engine purists out there probably wish it was stripped down more. Like I said, a matter of taste.
I am waiting on a lease quote on a Genesis before attacking this again. Your thoughts are appreciated. Otherwise, I will at least post the final outcome.

See my post above on my current deal. I honestly think I can knock them down another 5-10 bucks on the monthly payment, but the salesman is a really nice guy and I do have a trade-in. I think you can knock them down even further. I just lined up 3 dealers and play the numbers game for few hours over the phone.
#4848 of 7594 IFS January 15K lease rates for 2009/10 G37 sedan with Premium/Nav?
Jan 13, 2010 (2:06 pm)
Car_Man or sewellgsm,
I'm looking to do a 15K lease on a 2009 G37 sedan with premium/nav...possibly a 2010 (with the same options). Can you give me the January IFS figures on each of these vehicles and a decent monthly payments expectation (with only first and fees at signing).
Live in Houston.

I just purchased the car today for 35K instead of leasing. On the lease, I think I could have beat him down another 300-400 bucks.
Lease - 39 Months 15k
Invoice - 39,300
Cost - $37,800
Monthly - $433
MF - 0.00125
Residual - 56%

Tell him to take a few hundred off and then ask him for the 1K lease sell-down rebate!

Well... I did talk to my local dealer about buying this vehicle at auction and selling it back to me. They said that they will try to do that for me but that there is a lot of risk involved. They said that there are 100s of dealers bidding on the vehicle and not just the infiniti dealers. Looking at my car condition he felt that it would attract a lot of bids and that the chances of them getting the vehicle would be slim. If they had to absolutely go for it, then may be I would end up saving about a 1500 from where I am. The dealer doc fee is like 400 and there is shipping costs involved as well. They said the net benefit I might be looking at is $900-800 which may not be worth risking this option as opposed to buying it out if I really liked it. I need help deciding.......
