Dropped it off for the 3750 service (2-years / 24K factory recommended service is free at my dealership :D ) this morning and noticed that the lot was full of FX's; mostly '05s. There were a few '04s left, but mostly 05s (probably 75% FX35s, but a fair number of 45s). A few observations:

1) The Saphire Blue is a nice color; a dark deep blue. Although it's a nice color, its not to die for in my opinion.
2) Very few 35s loaded with everything; most were either Touring + Tech or Touring + Sport (very few with Tour + Tech + Sport). I didn't see any with MES/LDW (although I didn't look at every car).
3) I do not like the new pebbled/dotted metal trim.
4) The new darker grill is a neutral change in my opinion. I could take it or leave it. But I do think it depends on the color options you pick.

All in all I glad I bought in September and did not wait.

I agree that the older aluminum trim is nicer, but the new trim is much less prone to scratches. I have a friend who has an 04, his trim got scratched up from the zipper from his jacket.

Yeah, the 05 with the new wheels look great. They really make the car, the old wheels were just too plain looking. These give it a great look. All infinitis hame similar wheel designs, the 05 wheels are a nice change. Wish they would have had a new wheel for the 05 FX. Not complaing about how they look, just that they have stayed the same since 03.
