FNG here - no QX yet, though...

Hello all - new guy here. I live in Fort Sill, OK. The family and I spent the day in Dallas looking for a used QX56 ('04 to '08) with no dice. Looked at seven, all had issues that turned us off. The Infiniti dealership in Oklahoma City has one that's just been traded in we're going to look at tomorrow.

I'm a long-time member over at NICOClub.com, and currently drive a 2002 Infiniti Q45, black on black. Here are some photos of that, until I have photos of a QX to post:







Other vehicles have been a 1993 Infiniti Q45 (finally died with over 300,000 on it back in 2005), '01 Nissan Maxima (totaled by an elderly woman crashing down an icy hill), and '99 Jimmy (waiting to get sold).

Bought a QX56 yesterday. It's in EXCELLENT shape. A few rock chips up front and some pinstriping issues, but those are getting fixed along with 25% tint getting added next weekend.

Today she got detailed:

Wash
Meguiar's Claybar
Meguiar's NXT TechWax 2.0
Meguiar's Ultimate Compound for the wheels (they were ROUGH).
Meguiar's Leather Conditioner (I know it's crap, all I have right now)

Next weekend she'll get some Meguiar's Gold Class Caranuba+.

Planned mods:
Billet grille
Wood dash kit (have to decide between Remin and B&I)
Dual zone CarPC and Android
Bilsteins
Firestone Destination LE2s

It's funny but the Q45 interior still looks great- the black and dark wood is quite striking

Thanks! I agree entirely. Tuscan Pearl\Graphite was our first choice for a QX, but this Jade\Willow is really growing on me.

Tuscan Pearl/Graphite was our first choice as well, but they stopped offering the Graphite with the Tuscan in 2008 when we were ordering our QX. A big bummer for us...although the Willow looks great- it is not nearly as "family friendly" as the Graphite.
