I'm wanting to hear responses about what changes are going to be made to the 2004 G35 Sedan. My dealer is telling me he hasn't heard of any changes which makes me suspicious, (trying to get me into that 2003 on the floor).
Any websites, release dates, options, changes (interior, exterior, price, etc.)
I'm told release date will be late September, so do I wait or not?

    I would be interested to know sure changes that have been made to the 2004 models. I know that Diamond Graphite (I think it is that) color has been added, but other than that I am not sure.

    I know the mods will probably want to delete this post and say go post in the main G35 discussion, but it would be helpful if it were more easily accessible so that this post could purely concentrate on 2004 changes.

    Below is more into from an autospies.com reader:

    The AWD Infiniti is a reality.

    It will have an electronically controlled AWD system. An Infiniti G35 dealer on Long Island, New York took my order for an AWD version. I was told the AWD will be $1500 more than RWD and that the actual MSRP is not yet known. I negotiated a profit over the list price, as well as a not to exceed price. The car may be delivered in November but delivery is more likely to occur in December or January. I was told that there wouldn't be many AWDs available the first year.

    Whatever "official" info is available can be found at www.nissannews.com

    www.freshalloy.com is also a helpful resource.

    Contrary to my earlier post, a dealer emailed me and informed me that the AWD G35 will now be coming for the '04 model year. Expected late November.

    Can anyone tell me if the AWD G35 sedan will be available with a 6 speed manual transmission? It is not clear from the Infiniti website whether it will be available or not. Thanks
  • mbednorzmbednorz Member Posts: 63
    All signs point to the AWD G35 being available only in auto for the foreseeable future. Several very reputable sources say that they don't see how Infiniti could have a manual version anytime in the next 6 months. After that, who knows.

    I have just posted the story of my dealings with Inifiniti Canada on the board "G35 Problems and Solutions" - Post #767 and #807. There is a problem with the brakes on '03 G35's and there is an even bigger problem with the corporate attitude of Infiniti Canada that does not bode well for their future. Would I buy a new Infiniti knowing what I know about their attitude? It would take a lot of convincing....wanna buy a used '03 G35?
