G 35 interior question

Postby gtr96uf » Tue Jun 24, 2003 12:20 pm

hey all....im very close to buying a '03 couple...does anyone know if i can get a center armrest if i go with the 6 speed model? the dealer tells me that the full armrest is only availble on the automatic. but i have actualy seen 1 coupe that was a 6 speed and had a armrest, not as big as the automatic...none the less, it was better than nothing. can anyone help me out here?thanks

Armrest in Coup

Postby bthomson2 » Tue Jun 24, 2003 12:20 pm

Just FYI you can get an armrest in the coupe. However, it is not the same length as the sedan. It is a much shorter version! It only allows for a two-drink holder or small cubby space. It does not reach my arm for it to "rest" on at all. I suppose if you are a taller person, (I'm 5'6") it would serve only to interfere with your elbow during a shift to 2nd, 4th, or 6th. Hope this helps.

My 6mt came with a little kit that eliminates the flip open compartment on the armrest. It was there to make shifting easier. You may want to ask at the dealer if you didn't get one. It really eliminates the elbow banging.

Mine came with the same kit. However, the armrest does not interfere with my elbow.

I seem to remember reading somewhere recently that Infiniti made a mid-model yr change to the 6-speeds to include an armrest. Check with your dealer. You may want to check-out some of the cars currently on the lot first to be certain B4 you talk to the parts guy (who may not know).

I was told the only change to the mid year models was having the factory enabled hook up for the satellite radio. Other than that, there were no changes and there isn't an official 2003.5. Some people are just calling them a 2003.5 due to the radio change. There also is no 2003.5 listed in the new car guide either and that is usually a sign of the manufacturer not manufacturing a true 2003.5. I could be misinformed though.

There is a small number of mid -year running changes, the totality of which is called 2003.5 by the online community and even the occaisional dealer.
