    I have done a dash kit....easy to do if the kit is of good quality........you need to clean all areas first with a good wax and grease remover and then using a heat gun or good hair dryer heat up any parts that arent going to lie on the dash perfectly flat......this makes them easy to bend so they fit correctly. I have seen some kits at the Infiniti dealer and wasnt impressed...the wood didnt match the factory's and some parts didnt fit as well as they should have. Mike

    ps pick a warm summer day when installing

    tturner23,
    Have you seen any of the posts in the I35 forum about buying in Canada? Over 60 of us have done it. I do realize that you're 750 miles from Toronto, but that certainly would not be the farthest that someone has gone. Basically that exact I35 will sell for about $25,000 there. A $5000 savings might just be worth it. Take a cheapy flight up and a couple day drive home. Lots of people have written about this in the Pathfinder and QX4 forums too. I'm glad to provide details to anyone on this. Just drop me an email. Toronto and Vancouver are usually the best.

    We just got an I35 for $31K with Sport Package, Sunroof/Rear Sun Shade, SR Deflector, Spoiler, and 2 splash guards.
    Don't pay for paint protection package, I don't think it's real. They just mark up on the window sticker and hope can get some easy guys. I know couple year ago a friend of my wifes paid $1200 came with her new car.
    I can't get the driver's seat programmed even followed the instruction from the manual for few times.
  • ilit:

    Per Consumer Report The Dealer Cost is as follows:

    Base invoice-($26,044);Add Destination Charge-($545);Less Holdback-($-288);Add Sport Package-($1,465);Add Sunroof/Sunshade Package-($1,217);Add Wind Deflector-($44);Add Spoiler-($431);Add Mud Gaurds-($59); Total Dealer cost-
    $29,517;

    My calculations indicate that if you paid $31,000,you paid $1,483 over the dealer cost.
    This is less than the price offered me-$2,549 over dealer cost.

    I would appreciate some others providing me with what they paid over dealer cost. Thanks!

  • Picked up my I35 the other day. Ivory pearl, willow interior, Sunroof (of course), side sills,rear mud guards, all weather mats, pinstripe, first 2 oil changes..$29,075. Got it @ Douglas Infiniti Summit,NJ. Barry was my Salesman. Thanks Allan
  • Did You get the Cold Weather Package (Htd Seats, Hts Steering Wheel and Htd Side View Mirrors)?

    Per your message, assuming no, that's $779 Over Invoice, plus what you got included at No Charge (Mats $80?, Oil Change $60, PinStrip $??), not bad.

    Any pictures of the PinStrips, haven't seen an I35 with them?
  • No, I did not go for the Cold weather package. The pinstripe looks really nice.(about $200) It's kind of a contrasting color,one thin line and one slightly wider line.
  • Glad it worked out! It's great to help out a fellow New Jersian and Infiniti owner!!!

    njbaran99 - come East, and jdukie1 and I will play a couple rounds of golf with you. Between his ivory, your black, and my silver I35, we could start a dealership!!!

    Nice talking to you both.

    FYI: My deal at $29,200 included cold weather pkg, sunroof/sunshade, mud guards, 2 free oil changes (worth $90), all-season mats ($80). Just over $31K out the door. I spoke to our mutual sales guy, he said that jdukie1 was a tougher negotiator than me!!
  • He probably said I was more of a pain in the A$$

    I just bought my wife a 2002 Golden Sand I35 this morning March 23, 2002. It has the Sunroof and sunshade and 4 splash guards. I paid invoice plus $0.00 and the dealer didn't even balk. Costs were $26044 for the car, $1217 for the Sunroof $92 for the splash guards and $545 for the destination. Total walk out the door $20944.37 with a $9000 trade. That price includes the following fees: M&A- marketing and advertising fee - $361, processing fee - $399, Tire and battery fee - $6.50, Title fee $100 charge and will return the difference between actual cost in 4-6 weeks. Included 1179.87 for sales tax (I had a 9,000 trade). I know that I could have done just a little better. I went to the dealer with 2 other offers that I obtained from the internet. He didn't even ask to see them. He tried to sell me a warranty but I showed him 2 better prices that I already had from the internet. He said he could not match them. I received great treatment at Infiniti of Orlando, the sales consultants name is Brian Clifft and he is a real nice guy. Good Luck to all in obtaining the best price possible.

    I just bought a 2001 LEFTOVER Sandrock Beige I30T on December 14, 2001, fully loaded except the navigation system. It even had the auto-start from the keyfob. The car had 35 miles on it. Never sold. Actually it did sell in December 2000, but the deal fell thru, the owner never took delivery or possession and never drove the car. The dealer had gone thru a management change and this car along with one other I30T had fallen thru the cracks and never sold. It made a great deal for me. I was going to buy a 2002 I35, but when I saw this leftover NEW 2001 I30T for $24,500 I couldn't go wrong. This was before taxes. This is cheaper then buying a Maxima.

    Bought mine on Long Island, NY on April 18, 2002...sports package, cold weather package, full sized spare, sunroof/sunshade, rear splash guards, trunk mat..$29,750.00

    I just got I35 with sport package (including sidesills and rear splash guard, 17 in. wheel), sunroof, rear spoiler and VDC (vehicle dynamic control) for $30,264 yesterday. That price I got from Edmunds.com and deal on the phone with the dealer. It was so easy.
  • I have done my homework and decided the I35 is for me. Now the hard part...getting the 'best' price I can. What price have you all paid at Ray Catena in Edison,NJ? Any good salepeople? Anything to avoid? Thanks for the help.
  • I paid 27,600 for my i35 at North Houston Infiniti. Ask for Will Wilkes. We called dealers throughout neighboring states and decided upon this dealership.We flew in from Louisiana and were picked up at the airport by will. This was by far the easiest deal we ever made. We got the luxury pkg,(sunroof/sunshade)

    I35 with cold weather, sunroof and sunshade, spoiler, trunk mat, and splash guards, list $32,085. Any thoughts about dealer offer of $29,200 plus $199 processing fee?

    Any comments on extended warranty?

    Ace1001,
    I live in Long Island,N. Y. and on March 31 of this year,leased an "I" with the following options:sport package,sunroof/sunshade,cold weather,full size spare,spoiler,mud guards,and trunk mat. Sticker was $33,905.00 including destination charges. My purchase price was $29,694.19.
    There was a $500.00 manufacturer to dealer rebate at the time. IMHO your not being offered that good of a deal, you be the judge! I don't believe in extended warranty's unless you are purchasing a car with a terrible track record. The "I" does not fall into that category. Good Luck!!!

    Thank you for your reply. I really appreciate it. I really had the same thought and your response helped confirm it.

    I am wondering what others may have paid for a '02 I35 in the NW suburban Chicagoland area. Currently I am getting quotes for $28,500 with Sunroof, coldweather pkg and trunk mat. I could probably bargain further for mud flaps a couple of oil changes, etc.
  • metrikmetrik Posts: 2
    Just got new 02 I35 for surprising $26,500 (including sunroof / sunshade package, splash guards, trunk mat and trunk net). The price was $1500 lower than Carsdirect.com could offer. Isn't that something?
  • Which dealer?

    Who did you close your purchase with??
  • metrikmetrik Posts: 2
    Miller Infiniti.
    Advertised price was $26,788 (5 cars only, millenium jade color excluded).
  • Trying to buy my first Infiniti. Sticker is 30,000 and change salesman offered me $28,500. Only option is moonroof. Edmunds says $27,383 is target. Any comments? Dealership is in Massachusetts.

    Any idea if the price will go down sometime in September 2002 for the 2002 I35 model before the 2003 models come out sometime in October? Are there any changes in the 03 model? The best price I've been "quoted" over the phone is $28,200 which includes the destination charge, sunroof/sunshade, splash guards and a trunk mat which seems to automatically come with all the cars that are available. I want the millennium jade color with window tint and pinstripes and I'm eager to know what price someone has paid here in Houston, TX for the I35 along with who they might have worked a deal out with. Our choices of dealerships are North Houston, Westside and Southwest Infiniti. PLEASE ADVISE!

    I negotiated a deal for my sister: The sticker was 35,500: everything except Nav. Negotiated down to 31,000 (with tags) before tax. Midnight Blue. She intended on buying a G35 but with the markup and no one is moving past MSRP, she got the I35 instead. She likes the ride and the look. I was surprised by the size. I have never sat in a modern Maxima/I35 before but I like it! Oh, also got free oil changes every 3,500miles for three years. Sweet ride!
  • hclllhclll Posts: 35
    Contacted admore infinit, get quote for I35: $500 over invoice, so if I choose only sunroof and splash guard, it would be $27356. Is this a good deal?

    Also, did you all bargan out the destination charge or you all paid it?
  • robdamrobdam Posts: 2
    '02 I35 $26,044, Cold Pkg $604, Nav $1805, Sunroof/sunshade $1217, Sport Pkg $1551, Spoiler $387, Full size spare $180, Advertising assesment, (what is that?) $385 TOTAL: $32,693
  • THAT'S ABOUT WHAT I PAID LAST NOVEMBER... AND I DON'T HAVE SPORT PKG...OR NAV..

    LOOKS LIKE A SUPER DEAL!

    GREAT CAR...YOU'LL LOVE IT
  • Price looks good. I paid $32,900 for the same exact package in March.

    Enjoy
