You really need to look at all the months and see that the average per month (since Jan 2003) is 2394. So October was a good month in those terms. It also seems like the 2005 models didn't start hitting the dealers until mid/late October and I think (but not certain) that the 2004s were out earlier last year.
Total FX sales 2003: 27,637
Total FX sales 2004: 30,000 (my projection)
Total FX sales to date: 52,655
Total passenger vehicles sold in the US for 2003: 16.6 million
Looks like the G35C fever has died down finally. BTW, this past spring Infiniti extended VPP pricing to that model too. It's said to be the only vehicle in marque's history to retain a projected 50% of its value after 5 years. I just spotted one the other day tearing off from a stoplight and the bugger had an exhaust note about as Italian as they come 8) . 298HP, 0-60 in low 5s and bomb-proof reliability all for under $40K. Crap, if I lived in warmer climes I'd grab one just like that.
