So I thought I would post for others what I found out. I ordered the remotes from the website you posted..very helpful btw. It's Infiniti of Scottsdale. The remotes were $43 a piece. I got them in and realized I didnt have the key blank on the inside. I just took the two remotes I got to Infiniti of Chantilly here in Va and they took the remotes..charged me 26 bucks a piece for the key blanks and one hour to program. So it turns out for 2 keys for a 2006 M35 the cost was $86 plus $52 plus $90 for labor. Not a bad deal considering the original cost quoted to me by another dealer for one key. Thanks for the help and referral.

I have one other minor complaint ... there's no backup key to start the car if the transmitter gets lost ... I've not encountered a problem, but the potential is always there.
There's a relatively simple, two-step solution for this.
1) Keep the infiniti's wallet key in your wallet at all times.
2) Keep an extra intelligent key, with its battery removed, well hidden somewhere within the car's cabin.
You can then open the door with the wallet key, find the intelligent key and start the car with that intelligent key (without its battery) by plugging that key into the intelligent key port to the left of the steering wheel. You can also keep an extra battery handy and the intelligent key will remember its programming after the battery is removed and reinserted.

Thank you for the "solution". If the wallet key you refer to is the one imbedded in the transmitter it's not exactly wallet friendly, and that's the ONLY key that came with my car. My wife's Lexus has a true wallet key, as did my Caddy. But stashing a spare transmitter sans battery securely in the car makes good sense. I'll look into that with my local Tucson Infiniti dealer ... or if he's useless I'll contact Infiniti of Scottsdale for help. Bart

I got a true wallet key with my new M35X, in addition to the 2 fobs and embedded keys.

As I wrote earlier, I never received a wallet key from Infiniti when I took delivery of my M35 Sport the first week of April in '05. Now I've got to go nag the dealer for one. Thanks for the feedback, Pete.

I have now been a very happy 2006 M35x owner for 8 months and love the car more and more every time I drive it.
I had the opportunity to drive all its competitors, but none of them even came close.
The only thing that I wish was different was the not so good gas mileage. Besides that, itís almost perfect.
I get asked about the car at least once a week. It was nice at first, but now im tired of hearing myself tell everyone how great it is, over and over and over again.

Every car owner should have that problem!
#16 of 104 Poor headlights Parking light warning too small
Sep 19, 2006 (4:18 pm)
I leased my M35 all wheel drive when the car first came out in March 2005. The car is fast, handles well, is comfortable to drive, very roomy, has easy to use information controls (as opposed to the BMW I Drive)and blue tooth is great. On the negative side it only gets 24-25 miles to the gallon on the highway and 18 around town. The headlights do not project out far enough so I feel like I am overdriving the lights. I asked the dealer to adjust the lights but I was told that cannot be done. Also, the parking brake warning light is too small and located in an inconvenient spot so a few times I drove a short distance with the parking brake on. I was disappointed that the brake did stop the car from moving.
All in all it is a great car but I do not know if I would get another one if they do not fix the headlights.

The dealer is wrong about the headlights. I adjusted mine to perfection a year ago, and I've been delighted ever since. Many, many owners have done it, and some dealers WILL do it for you.
Be happy. Your problem is solved.
