Yes, I have the xenon lights, and I have not tried to adjust them as yet. I did locate the cog wheels for the low beams , they are in a almost closed area behind the low beam headlights.I am worried about screwing them up by adjusting them since they are the adaptive lights that move with the steering wheel.
I love my new M35 and as in a previous posting I really enjoyed a recent road trip, the performance was awesome , up to over 100 mph without even realizing it , the ride was very smooth and effortless. got about 22 mpg on the road,16 mpg in the city. My 2 Lexus GS models before I made this change were very good cars, with no trouble whatsoever, I hope that my M will give me the same trouble free service. The only negative about the M are the headlights , the eratic bluetooth behavior, and just a little bit noisier than the Lexus. the nav system is great I am still learning about the different features in the nav.It can do so much and gives you so much info when you learn all of the features, it could be a little overwheming if you are not tuned to such things.As for the controls on the dash and steering wheel I think they work fine and look good , and being able to do almost anything on the dash with voice commands is great.
Oh ,by the way I changed to my M because the Lexus GS trunk was so small you couldn't even get any decent sized luggage in it, much less my golf clubs.

Before I bought my 05 G35, I test drove the M just before making my final decision. I loved the M through and through. It is truly a luxurious ride, albeit not a luxurious as a Lexus. But at the end of the day, I wanted more performance and less luxury. The G35 with a sport suspension got the nod.

I have the adaptive lights as well, and the adjustment has totally handled it for me. I think you'll be very happy if you do it.

Hi. As a new owner of 2007 M35X the only compliant I have is the same as yours. Have you found a solution? Has anyone delt with this problem that you know of? The second day I had the car I brought it back to the dealer and told them the same exact thing you had written and told them to please adjust the low beams up - they said they did. However, there's NO difference. Any help?

Here's the message people have been talking about.
Just follow the directions yourself and all will be well. It's very easy to do, and many owners have done it and are completely satisfied.

I am also curious if the 2007 G (non sport) will have as smooth a ride as the M35. By smooth ride, I mean less harsh and jolting over uneven pavement. Has anyone done a comparison between the M and the 2006 G35 (nonsport), and care to share your thoughts about the ride quality? Thanks
#19 of 22 2007 G35 NAV better than 2007 M45 NAV

The 2007 G35 seems to have a significantly upgraded nav-system. It is hard-drive base, and includes traffic monitoring and voice-recognition control of the navigation, radio, and climate systems. It also tells you which precise lane to be in for freeway navigation.
The navigation system in the 2007 G35 seems more advanced (and has more features) then the system on the 2007 M35/M45.
Below is a description of the 2007 G35 nav system from someone's review: "The Navigation Package consists of a GPS-based system employing a 30GB hard disc drive (which displaces the in-dash, six-CD changer to the trunk and contains a 9.5GB partition for user-recorded audio tracks); MP3-capable compact flash media slot (also used to copy audio to the HDD and update the map database); lane guidance, which preps a driver for a left or right exit ramp from a freeway; voice recognition for climate control, audio and navigation; and a three-month trial subscription to Sirius or XM satellite radio, the latter including real-time traffic information where available."
#20 of 22 Test drives 2007 G35 and 2007 M35 - G wins! for me

Am presently the proud owner of a 2003 G35 that I bought new in Mar of 2002. I love it but want to update to a 2007 because of all the new technology and improved handling.
Robert Snider of Escondido Infiniti near San Diego took me for a test drive of both the 2007 G35 Journey and the 2007 M35.
I loved everything about the new G compared to my 2003, it is faster and really fun to drive, a beautiful four door sports car that I would be and probably will be very proud to own. The handling was perfect and held beautifully on sharp curves, much better than BMWs for me! The technology of all the gadgets really attracted me and I would buy everything they make for it except the sports suspension. The regular suspension is excellent for sports car type handling.
I next drove the M35 and compared to the G35 was very slow to accelerate. The power of the G is 306 hp and only 275 for the M. The M also weighs 500 pounds more so the M really seemed slow by comparison. The M is really unexciting to drive compared to the G. It is a wonderful car though and many people would never notice, I am only 76 years old and need a fun car to drive, my 2003 G has been and I can't bring myself to lose the fun of driving.
They are both wonderful cars but the G wins for me with no regard to the price difference, I can afford both so that doesn't matter.
Good luck to all.

I sure hope I'm still into (and able to handle) fast cars when I reach that age!

Ill 2nd that comment about 76!
I know this is pure speculation, but I'm thinking that a lot of the goodies in the 2007 G Sedan will show up in the 2008 M35. I leased a 2007 M35x back in August on the 21 month lease. So I am anticipating that in May 2008 I will be looking at another M35x but with the next gen VQ engine as well as the other nice technical advancements that the M will get with a 'freshening'.
I do like the 2007 G sedan tho. To me it seems like a cross between an M and a G coupe.
