Now if I could get the brakes to quiet down on that first back-up out of the driveway
You may have a some rust buildup on your rotors from sitting on the lot and being exposed to the elements. Depending on the severity of any rust you may be able to remove it by heating the pads and rotors up. (see the procedure below) This isn't a standard just an example most areas require adjustment in distance or speed, please obey all posted speed limits.
Accelerate to ~50mph Apply the brakes at ~3/4 pressure to a complete stopDrive for 1/2 mile or so without applying the brakes to allow the brakes to cool slightly Accelerate to ~40mph and apply the brakes at ~1/2 apply pressureIdeally after two or three of these any light surface rust will be cleared
The brakes may also make noise is they are dry pads or non OE pads.

The FX online community is slowly growing and Infiniti is just starting to realize the benefits of this type of group. If you have any questions feel free to post them here or you could email any of the staff members and well help you out. Feel free to check out some of the other sections of this site, there are many random conversations going on here.

I'll look into this. I really do not know that there is much difference between the 04 and 05. They do not know all the model specific coverage. A quick of example is when I was searching for a new radio for my car I found that the radio from a 95J30 is the same as a radio from the 99Pathfinder that was covered so technically 90% of the radios from ~94+ actually might work. If your truck has satellite radio enabled you will need to find a Y connector that works with something like Axxess XIO-I01. I have had a few dealings with the company and their customer service and tech support suck but their products seem to work for some.
If you were thinking of using an FM modulator don't count on it. You would be better off going with a tape deck adapter and charging cable that plugs into the power outlet.
