Not too many things make me happier. I am sad to see my current car go 2013 M37X Sport, It has really served me well and I enjoyed it very much.

I got my service records run so that I can turn in with my lease return papers to prove compliance with manufacturers service guidelines. I got to 56K miles on 1 set of wiper blades, 1 set of front brakes, 1 set of rear brakes, 12 oil changes, 5 tire rotations and not a penny spent on anything else in 39 Months. Floor mats were comp-ed since I wore through there the heal is in front of the accelerator.

After a long journey, and a lot of test drives, calculations, negotiations and research I have finally made a decision on a new vehicle. Left the deposit today.

It is a 2016 Q70S (Sport). Tech package, Touring, Bose package, Sport Wheels/Tires and Big brake package. Car has a great IIHS crash test which is very important to me. This is my 6th consecutive Infiniti purchase and a record for me by 4.

I was having a very hard time locating the exact car I wanted but the dealer located it down south. Not sure where as they won't tell me. I offered to pick it up and they said ownership would transfer at the pick up point and they would not be able to sell me the car so its being trucked in. That's why I guess they won't tell me. There are poor on-line tools to locate a specific car through Infiniti with the different packages. I'm not sure why they don't allow customers to locate the car they wanted, but the dealer has access to this in a second. I listed the packages I wanted and the dealers screen populated by vin 1-2-3. They we chose exterior color and Interior color and BOOM in seconds he located in our neck of the woods. I tried calling dealers to locate myself, but everyone wants you to come into the showroom to run a locate on a car they don't have-NO THANKS. I cannot wait for the day I can buy my car online and have dealer serve a service center only / test drive central. My dealer salesman happens to be a good one-Knows the car and the product. But on the whole, auto salespeople don't know squat about what they sell (This goes for all the brands I researched)

My colors choices with the set up I wanted were Black (Uh-NO!) I am definitely not up for that storm.

Moonlight white (Pearl) I have had 2 of these in a row so time for a change. most don't know I got a new car in 2013.

Hermosa Blue (bright navy, looks lighter ion sunshine)-Nice but its so dark I might as well just go black if I get that dark blue. My wife has zero idea what the hell I mean by that, but that a whole different story.

There is a new color for 2016 called Graphite Shadow. It's a charcoal color but filled with metallic flake and has a kind of pearl look to it. Dealer warned me that matching with touch up paint is as hard as the moonlight white due to 3 stage paint process. Oh well, here we go again.

Infiniti does not make a plain old white car like Alpine white on the BMW or Obis white on the Audi. That's what I would have wanted that in a second.

The interior I wanted was the Tuxedo interior-Dark carpets, steering wheel, dash board and headliner, light gray seats and arm rests. I think its much sharper than the standard one color interior. Interestingly enough that interior is not popular and is what made this so hard to find. A black or graphite (dark gray) interior is all over the place with this exterior color. I would have settled on black but got them to bring this in without any extra charge so all good.

Only the mechanical and technology prep will take place, No dealer exterior cosmetic prep will take place, we will peel the plastic together and check for damage. This is just like last time. They remembered the drill. Will be picked up by end of the month.

I hope the weather cooperates and I can go for a full monte detail. If it's too cold, I will wash and Permanon until the weather improves.

Planning on using a coating I never used before-Perhaps a big Gyeon coating detail on this baby, trying to make this baby shine like Mike did it-LOL.

Will polish with essence or something stronger once I see what I'm dealing with. Then, thinking Gyeon Mhoes (best non pro I can buy), topped with booster, tires with Gyeon tire, leather seats cleaned with PA Bella Clean, softened with PA Charisma, and sealed with Gyeon Leather coat, Gyeon tire on tiers, PA Engine on the Engine, trim and front plastic fender wells with gyeon trim, Rims with Gyeon Rim and Fabric and floor mats with Gyeon Fabric. Exhaust tips with PA Palladium, I will most likely use Optimum Glass Coat on the exterior glass and lenses as I have had stellar results and own a lifetime supply. If I hear of something better, in category I would consider trying it.

Wonder if I pack this stuff on the exterior paint and glass I can get 39 months (my lease)??????????

I may switch up some products if I find a better mousetrap or something interesting comes my way. New Q70-

Sounds like you optioned the Q very nicely. Same interior I would get if I were getting into a new one. Would you mind sharing which dealer you used?

The updated Q70s are SHARP even in their non-sport get-up. Saw a white Sport with the dark sport wheels... looks AWESOME on the road. So good choice.

I see they still won't let you get the Java interior with the sport pkg & now you have to get AWD as well :frown:

Why cant you get the sports package on the long wheel base model.

I want a Q70LS AWD 5.6

Sure,

I have purchased my last 2 cars at Massapequa Infiniti and my salesman is Randy. This dealer is a painless purchase process.

I believe the fact that they are family owed dealer and and not part of a chain of stores makes the difference.

I you need an intro, let me now.

Well, I cannot really say. I wanted AWD in NY and also wanted the Stone Interior.

I think the L is for Luxury or Limo (LOL).

Most buyers who buy this want luxury not sport IMHO.

I've been there, they were VERY polite and professional. The latter cannot be said for some other dealer on Sunrise, ahem. Will check in with them should I go the Q70 route myself when it is time.

Yep, Randy is a good guy and gets the point as quickly and effectively as you want. He knows the car, the options and the colors. He is quick to respond to questions I left on his VM and he is a detail oriented person who aims to please.

I am not an easy customer. I want things just a certain way, from A-Z when I'm plunking down big bucks for a can and he deals with me. I cont want dealer sickers, shine tire dressing or a wash.

That's the way it should be, dealership treats the customer as an individual. Hopefully you can post pics of the Graphite Shadow and the interior after you take delivery, I'd really like to see how they look together.

Cant wait for the pics!!

You might want to make a seperate thread for that!
Especially that interior sounds interesting reminds me of the classic Q45 Shamu interior, maybe...

Congrats!!!!

Car has been garaged since I brought it home. Did a full top to bottom, inside and out front to back detail.

I have a tons of pics but my photo bucket is sucking and their customer service is worse.

Will have my kid try to re connect it for me.
