Because if it was for the M, I'd love to have at least 1-2 more. I've looked EVERYWHERE for one, but haven't found it yet. Do you, or anyone else, know where I can get one -- I wanted to make sure I got the right one (correct part # for the M).
I actually like the idea of it better (and the fact that it's in the glove compartment). I had the 6 disc IN-DASH changer in the Acura, and that was actually MORE of a pain in the butt than this! You can just POP the whole magazine now ... with the Acura if I wanted to pop CD#4, if was like a 3-step process.
I've got multiple cartridges for the M45, the boat, and a bunch of leftover over ones from previous cars. God forbid they should actually use the same ones. The cartidge (magazine) you want for the M45 is Clarion's model CAA-397. I bought three of them from a local car stereo shop that is a Clarion dealer. He only had three in stock at the time. If you can't find them locally, Crutchfield.com has them in stock for $29.99 each.
I guess the axiom of "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it" applies to the CD changer in the M45. Every single press review complained about the changer in the glove box, so Infiniti gave the public what they wished for, an in dash changer. Huge pain in the *** and a big step backward if you ask me, which of course nobody did.
