I ordered my car from Dryer and Reinbold Infiniti in Indianapolis. After three different test drives over the period of a year, I accepted the dealers offer via phone on Monday, September 8, 2003. My car arrived on Wednesday, Nov 19 and my wife and I drove to Indy to pick it up the following Saturday.

Warranty Repairs

I’ve only made one visit to the dealer for warranty repairs. The DVD Navigation system was replaced because it was having problems reading the disc.


It seems like I have to tweak about everything I buy, at least a little bit. Here is what I’ve installed and have planned.


  • Aluminum pedals
  • Clear side marker lenses
  • PhatNoise PhatBox digital music player (with voice prompts)

    Never checked the other parts of your blog, didn’t know you had one of these. I had an 03 coupe for 2 years but got rid of it when I moved to the city and didn’t need a car (plus I didn’t want to get it banged up). I drove the 4 door on loaner a few times, I liked it a lot especially the 4 wheel drive one. I definitely had to take mine in more than a few times, but it was always the same two things pretty much, the 6 disc changer would eat the cds and the window motors would break. Other than those two small hi-cups a great car – do you still own the sedan?

    Yeah, I still have my G35 Sedan and I’m still loving it. It’s my daily driver and it has about 70k miles on it — and still no additional problems. The revised 2007 model is a beautiful car, but I don’t see any need to get trade-up from the one I have right now. I’m very happy with it.
