Hi everyone, first timer. I am planning to purchase or lease a 2008 M35 next month.
Has Infinity upgraded the stereo? I leased a 2007 on biz a few months ago. I was typical rent a car beat up a little. The throttle from a stop is a real neck jecker. Nomatter how I tried it continued, so I got used to it. I heard they fixed it with a software upgrade. Thanks for reading. I look forward to your wise advice.

With the M35x, you do get an option to slow the thottle response down a little if you select the snow mode. This also always starts in 4-wheel drive mode, so I'm not sure how that would affect reliability in the long term. Personally, I let the car start to roll after a stop without touching the gas, then once it's moving accellerate away. Don't know about if they've changed the programming, although it should be easy to do.

I've had my '07 for 2 months now and find the stereo one of the most disappointing aspects of the vehicle. Bose has never failed to disappoint me in tonal quality or spatial reality of the soundstage. In the M, Bose has gone to new depths of performance. Frankly, my 99 Toyota Avalon had a better system than this vehicle. Oh, and try to explain that to your service advisor to see if there is really a problem - are they all tone death?
From what I have read, the 08 is basically the same in performance and sound realism.

Thanks for your input. I'll probably still buy it. Maybe I can get a better aftermarket

Is there an iPod/mp3 hookup in last year's model?
If no, is there a way (some sort of aftermarket hardware?) to be able to control an iPod from the nav screen?

I am also wondering if there is an iPod hookup.

I've heard alot of negative criticism on the bose systems for the M. I have an 04 G35 Coupe with the optional bose system and it too had quite a bit of negative reviews. However, for my needs, I actually find it to be ok. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with this system and can compare it to the basic system that comes in the base model M. If it is close in sound quality, I would be fine as I'm planning on purchasing an 08 M35 with no options.

Just picked my 08 M35S, w/ tech pkg. Music is passable, but I have heard better, much better. The tech pkg is worth it alone. Buy one and spend a few bucks at the auto sound shops.
