Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I am thankful for a lot of stuff I've learned here so far, so thank you! I should really make a donation. Seriously.

Well, I got an 'end of year' deal on a '04 FX45 and we absolutely love it! I did find something weird that I noticed when I was checking the car out closely last weekend. When I lifted up the trunk carpeting to expose the spare tire I found about a hundred uncooked popcorn seeds in one of the wells. WTF is this? :lol: Anyway, I called my dealer and he has no clue... maybe in the factory the were having a party and got careless? I dunno...I did check further and there weren't any drugs or money to my knowledge... oh well..

Has anyone found anything weird in their new car?

Also, after reading about the problems with their seats I went out and looked at mine, and by God I have freaking bubbles in them! :roll: What was the final outcome of all that? I mean, I have 350 mi on the Odometer.. this sucks!


Good times guys, and thanks for reading all this.

Popcorn seeds? That's funny :lol: .

Wait for the summer and park it outside for the long time. Who knows? Maybe they will pop. :lol:

It was 5K off... I believe this was on all '04's no matter what package it had. My dealership in VA didn't have any black models w/nav, and the only one I could find was fully loaded w/dvd up in MD. They "claim" it was $250 over invoice...


Can anyone tell me what site FA is?

Not an Infiniti story, but when I owned my previous car I took it to the dealer for service and after I picked it up I found a couple of screw drivers under the hood... They now belong to me! :wink:

There was a story I heard years ago about real high-end car like a Rolls Royce. The guy that bought the car kept hearing this really annoying noise every time he came to a stop. Brought it back to the dealer several times, but the dealer could not track down the noise. Eventually they replaced the car and shipped the original one back to the factory to figure it out. They pretty much dissected the car only to find several ball bearings rolling around inside the frame rail, placed there by a disgruntled employee.

I received an odd gift in a Mach I Mustang I bought in 1969. A worker on the line left about 7-8 window cranks under the passenger seat!

Factory workers play all kinds of games. I've heard of emply cans of pork & beans in the door frames and cough drops placed in the dash boards. The cough drops are funny because it leaves a trail of red syrup when they melt after about 3-5 years.
