Infiniti G37 Lease Questions



  • mftmrtmftmrt Posts: 17
    I think what's really going on here is that BMW's have slightly higher residuals which is understandable, but the major impact is that BMW Finance has extremely low interest rates (money factors) compared to Infinity Finance. If I were buying the car outright, it would be an easy decision to go with the G35 (which is the car I prefer), but for leasing, there's no getting around the fact that BMW has much better rates.
  • mftmrt...if those numbers are correct for the g35 your payment should still be less. According to the numbers you gave, and assuming that the 700 acquisition fee is rolled in to the cost of the car, I show your payments should be around 609 (incl. tax).

    As for the BMW...with those numbers the residual looks to be pretty high...can't be exact, but I'd say around 65% assuming that the MF is .0019

    This all also assumes that you aren't being charged any processing fees other than like 400 for title, registration, and misc. doc fees. in your drive off number. Hopefully those residuals for BMW are correct and maybe Infiniti will be more willing to negotiate theirs...even just a slight increase will be nice. I'd also push for more off the G35...I've seen people getting more agressive discounts here. I'm going to try to work a deal to get that G35 package for around 500 (incl tax). Best of luck. Let me know if you get any better numbers.

    I signed a 2 yr lease for a 2006 Infiniti G35 Sedan MT6 few months back; i started having problems with the gear box recently where it would be really stiff; i took it to a local dealer and it turns out that they have the authorization to replace the transmission and is scheduled for next week.
    I could be completely off but should i not check with infiniti and ask for a new car altogether .. a car with replaced transmission isnt a new car anymore. Can anybody let me know what my options/ rights as a customer are ?
  • I'm also considering the BMW 525i/530i deal over the G35. The G35 Journey w/ premium has all I need, but the terms for Infiniti are not very favorable in comparison to BMW, making the two cars very close in terms of lease costs.

    The current base money factor for the BMW 525i and 530i is an amazing 0.0005. The residual on the 36 month lease w/ 12k miles is 62%. I drove the BMW today... the main problem here in South Florida is that they are moving the cars quickly and it is getting hard to get the color/option combo that I want. I'll probably have to order it.

    In comparison the local Infiniti had plenty of 07 G35's in stock. It seems to me that Infiniti has missed an opportunity to move some cars at the end of the year by not providing better incentives....
  • I forgot to mention that to get the 0.0005 BMW money factor, all you need is 1 month security deposit and good credit.
  • 2007 G35-S Sedan Automatic
    Color Black on Black
    Premium, Navigation, Technology, Packages w/ Sirius Sat.
    Basically Everything but active Steering, Splash Guards, Maybe they will throw in the wing. (Maybe)!!!
    24 Month Lease 10k miles a year.
    1,500 Down + 800 Bank Fee + 500 Destination Fee + Tax 8.375
    So a Grand Total of about 4,000 Due at Signing. I Estimated the Tax to be About 1,200.
    443 a Month.

    I am not the smartest guy in the world. Need fellow car lovers help. Don't know how to figure out what the correct deal is. Am I being robbed, Great Deal, Am I in the Ball Park? If I left out any info, please let , me know, I will provide. Thank you in advance for your help, I need it!!!!!

    Car_man I asked the dealer those questions. He would not give me an answer. I got him to say 39,500. Also he is not throwing in the wing, but he will give mats, wheel locks ,cargo net, and plate covers. But he told me it did not matter what the price was, because my intention is to give it back after the 24 months. Like I said, I really am new at this, and not to bright. If it is 39,500 is that bad? What should I tell him. And if so can, please explain why I should negotiate that price? Thank you and everyone for there help!!!!!!!!
  • I'll plug your numbers into a calculator in a minute to see what the missing factors are. However...if he keeps saying that the price doesn't matter because you are turning it in in 24 months...he is full of it. shouldn't put the 1500 as a down payment. If you do anything with it you should put it towards 2 or 3 extra security deposit payments. Your money factor will go down, and your monthly payment will go up slightly, but when the lease is over you will get that 1500 back!!
  • Do you know what the residual will be and what the money factor is? did you estimate the tax to be 1200?
  • BMW is a great a machine. However, G35 offers more for your money, Standad Rear view monitor, VDC, Vehicle dynamic control for faster stops and safer agility control. ICC, Inteligent cruise control, lane departure sesnor,
    and not to mention 306 HP and 268 Torque.....

    let me know if you guys need the exact figures for leasing and buying on any Infiniti models


  • Hello there,

    We have $298 plus tax specials on all 06 G35s....
    Our current promotion is $5000 off MSRP on all 06 G35

    Let me know if you need figures...


  • careful about continuously posting your fantastic offers here in this board. People come here to discuss their deals and no offense but you might be a little bit biased. Also...VDC might be standard, but the other things you listed are NOT. The rear view camera, ICC, and lane departure sensor features are part of the $1100 technology package UPGRADE.

    Infinitiguy, I think you are soliciting business here... It is not allowed for the forum...
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 16,911
    if you bought the car, i could see your apprehension, but on a lease, it just doesn't matter, IMHO.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Well ... as others have said, BMW finance is just offering a better deal at the moment.

    However, as far as comparing the 2 cars, I personally would not be happy with a 528. What would a 530 sport cost you?

  • I would like to know if anyone would post the current residual and MF for a 2006 Coupe or Sedan 12-24 months and 12-15K miles/year.

  • MF and residual value are based on MSRP and terms. Presently we have promotion for $398.84 plus tax and 39 month lease term on 06 G35s.

    Once again, Infiniti MSRPs are not fixed. Each model has diff packages: i.e. premium,nav, technology, sports, etc.

    However, if you are looking for a base model lease I may put you behind the wheel roughly around $430.$475 per month lease.

    I hope I did answer your question.


  • Ok's time to stop spamming the board with your lease promotions. And way to side step the question that was asked. We all know that the MF and residual is not necessarilly fixed...but we know that there are numbers that IFS puts out for each model and term, so that gives us something to work with.

    Infinitiguy5, we came to this forum becuase it is commercial free (other than the site adv) and free of spammer like you. If I want to know lease deal, I would read the local newspaper or call our local dealers. Do you really think that you can drum up enough business in this site to make a different to your income??? We are all from different part of the country, so how often can you catch a local customer?

    Forum rules:

    5. No soliciting or classifieds
    The Forums do not allow solicitations or For-Sale postings. There are several reasons for this, but most importantly the discussions would be not be valuable if every other post contained an advertisement or falsified "customer testimonial". We strive to provide honest and accurate information.
    8. No "Email Me" or Email Addresses in Posts
    One important key to a successful, vibrant online community is having the conversation take place where everyone can benefit from the questions and answers. Therefore, we highly discourage "email me" requests within a post. As we like to have the discussion in the Forums, these posts will be removed. An email exchange of answers deprives the community of valuable information. Including your email address in posts also risks your security by exposing it to those who will use it maliciously.

    I was dumb enough to contact him, asked him for his "deal" and here's how he responded:

    "I am not allowed to shoot you figures without you being here in person due to the company's policy."
  • I just got back from the dealership and I was offered 1k over invoice, but I would have to order the car and wait for 2-3 months to get it. I don't have to agree to financing terms now as they will likely be different in March. Do you think that I should take this deal since I can basically customize my car exactly as I want it and know that it will only be 1k over invoice? Also, do you think that the MF and residuals will be better in March? I am hoping that they will get a bit better since the other vehicle financing seems to be much more agressive.

    Here is my other problem. My current lease is up this month. I have a 2003 G35 sedan w/ Nav, Premium, sport, and full aero body kit and 49k miles. I've seen cars listed at like 24k without the aero body kit. So my dilema is if I decide to order the new car, do I extend my current lease for 4 months (that's the minimum) or do I buy it out for 17800 and try to sell it on my own. My current monthly payment is $510 (incl. tax). Should I risk it and try to sell it on my own or just continue with my current payment and just turn in the keys when the new car arrives? Thanks for any input.
