Would love to hear how anyone is getting on with their FX and whether the withdrawal of Infiniti from the UK has affected things much??

Also interested to know if there are any Infiniti specialists situated anywhere around the UK?

Reading is still up and running. Not cheap. They say that Nissan will take on servicing, etc.

Servicing I don’t think will be an issue. The parts however were very expensive when Infiniti were in business, I shouldn’t imagine their withdrawal from the market will make them any cheaper sadly.

Anyone know this FX50? Seems a bit too cheap to me.

At 10 years and 100k miles old, £10k seems about right depending on condition

This one is slightly lower mileage and not that much more https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202...

I hear what you're saying, but that's not actually a 50S. It's a 3.7.

Another for sale:

ICP 425

Anyone able to clarify what the ICP 425 is? Ad claims it's based on the Vettel, and only 3 in the UK, but I can't see anything from a quick search
I have a vague recollection that the ICR (Infiniti Centre Reading) produced a couple of cars that were re-mapped and had I think a quicksilver exhaust fitted,. I’m not sure what ICP stands for but maybe it’s a typo as should read ICR..?
Sorry for the very late add, i was googling something and this came up

They were commissioned by Infiniti Center Picadilly ( hence ICP), I think they made six in total
remapped to 425bhp with a sports exhaust and colour coding.
Mine was also resprayed by them with matching stitching and calipers

5 1/2 years of ownership and I still love it and have no idea what i'd ever replace it with ( maybe a CLS63s shooting brake at some point)

I remember they had a white one, a green one and an orange one up for sale many years ago, 2012 maybe?

That's the vid I saw a while ago cool Sounds lovely. Got me thinking about them again rather than a 650i...

CLS63s Shooting Brake - lovely things. Makes perfect sense to me as a potential replacement!

Mines the orange one

Had lots of nice cars over the years but this one has lasted longer than any of the others.
I still have a silly grin when I drive it.

This was the line up, Vette now belongs to a fellow PHer

How do you go on for servicing these days Swerni? Have Infiniti left yet?

I had one of these or a 650i Gran Coupe down for my next change, and the combo of SUV (never had one and generally not keen) and the Infinit departure had convinced me to go the 650i route. But then they're a lot more ££.

I love nthe styling of both and have always really wanted either, so it'll still be a tough choice when I get round to it.

I’ve had mine serviced my a local garage for the past few years.
It’s a great big Datsun wink

I did use Infiniti in Reading a few times early on, but it was a pain so I stopped bothering.

I watched it for a long time until it sold, it still looks brilliant even now.

I can vouch that it’s very orange, loud and gets people filming it on the motorway. Not a car to Sneak around in...
