Hey Triple... a few things come to mind.
You should get 2 keyfobs,and there are little Infiniti logo (Mt Fugi) keychains that come also.
One of the keyfobs should include a little metal tag, which has your code, incase you ever need new fobs.
Check Tire Pressure, it's high from the factory.
Chek to be sure you got what you ordered... for instance, I ordered Splash Guards and never noticed they were missing until I got home.
The salesguy should have a full check list,be sure he goes through it with you.
Good luck, and enjoy the expereience.

Thanks much for the helpful hints. I had figured out using the scroll wheel work around. That works okay, but as you pointed out not ideal if you have a lot of CDs on the hard-drive.
I have not used the voice commands a lot, plus I forget who I entered voicetags for. But that is a problem with my memory, not the G35's design.
Again, I do like the car a lot.
#96 of 113 Little "jackrabit" motion when start moving
May 01, 2007 (4:48 am)
I love this car (for all of 3 days that i now have it).
One question is regarding a small jump or "jackrabit" type motion when pressing the accelerator pedal to start moving.
Especially - making left turn at the intersection while waiting for a light to change, etc.. , but i now learned to ease on the pedal to minimize this affect.
I've read some posts regarding this in these cars, but wanted to know more, if others experience same.

David, Yes everyone experiences that, I have two suggestions
1.) The gas pedal is drive by wire and is hinged at the bottom of the pedal, Not a metal bar coming from the top of your foot. Acceleration should be a flexing of the foot at the ankle with your heel secure to the floor board at all times. You heel also needs to be SNUG against the bottom of the pedal so you are not accelerating with your toe, you need to have your sole of your shoe FLAT on the entire pedal. This is usually where most people go wrong, they are driving with their toe or leg and not the ankle. The reason for this is you are probably sitting too far back. Move your seat forward 2", I don't know the car your coming from but moving an extra 2" up might feel cramped... ignore it for a bit, it will feel comfortable after a few miles and you forget about how it feels. 95% of the population sits too far back, especially those that drive sports cars for some reason feel like they should be barely able to reach the pedals and steering wheel.
2.) The car comes race-style, the adaptive learning system needs a few hundred miles before it understands how you like to drive on a regular basis. so keep at it and it will get much better. one it learns you, and you learn how it works. you will be astounded at how great the precision of the DBW system is.

#99 of 113 Intelligent Key placement in the key port

Is it a good idea to keep the intelligent key in the key port while drviving ? Does it matter ?

Right, but is it (key Port) not used to recharge intellegent key battery ? I can not seem to find any info about key port in the owner's manual.

no recharging, the keyfob takes the standard liion batteries and needs to be replaced (batteries not fob) just like any keyfob after 4-6 years.
