Hi, apologies for the delay in responding, recovering from a shoulder op so had forgotten all about this.

I have the same net, however my brother is missing one from his QX70. Do you have a price in mind including P&P and I can pass the information on?

If you wish to send me a PM that would be great.

Thanks, Paul

Servicing question...

Anyone had their Infiniti serviced at one of the approved Nissan dealers? My QX70 diesel is coming up for needing a service and I'm torn between taking it to Infiniti Authorised Repairer Network (a Nissan dealer which is the other side of London, and a PITA to get to and from) or trying an indie.

There's an indie near(ish) me that specialises in Nissan 350Z and 370Z. Since the QX is a 370Z underneath and has a reasonably common Renault/Nissan engine I figured it wouldn't be an utterly barking idea.

Any suggestions/experiences?

I was just wondering the same for a QX70. Infiniti Reading has obviously closed down, and Nissan Reading won't do the service, suggesting I go to Slough. Infiniti refunded my original EMAC service plan fortunately/unfortunately so looking at higher costs now for both major and minor service going through the approved Nissan route. So looking for good Independents near Reading literally at the moment.
Any suggestions? There must be a few owners near by in similar predicament as it was one of the few dealers. Used to be right next to work so last year couldn't have been easier! How times change!

Well, this forums got me sold. Ive had a CLK 320 CDI for the last 5 years (Consultant, so run big mileage).

Just brought a FX30d To replace both the merc and a disastorous Discovery 4 which the garage had more than me.

Quick question, im looking at using a Racechip module on this once were settled in (Bad experience with 2 x remaps and premature faliures). I know its doubtful, but any owners out there with siilar setup and experience?

P.S - Guys, anyone hunting the illusive V8 model, the dealer im buying mine from has a couple in his yard awaiting preperation.

1 is an 11 plate fx50 premium S with the V8. the others a 63 plate QX70 oil burner.

Google CarQuay Derby and ask to speak to Jamie.

FX30d owner in Berkshire here - I took the plunge and had mine serviced at Nissan in Slough in July. Overall pleasant and satisfactory experience - nothing to complain about so I plan to use again in future.

An issue has just reared its head on my 2010 FX.

The cameras (front & rear) have stopped working. The car has "Around View Monitor" so cameras dotted around the exterior. Putting the car into reverse doesn't engage the rear camera. Pressing the camera switch on the dash console doesn't now turn on the front camera.

I can't see any noticeable damage to the camera modules & there was no intermittent issues; the cameras simply stopped working.

Any ideas? Could be a fuse?

Just an update on this, for any who are interested. I ended up taking the local independent route for the service. Not even the Z specialist in the end; just a local owner-run garage with a good reputation and trading history. It seems to have been a good decision; they carried out a full major service (which was what was required) and it cost many hundreds of £ less than the Nissan dealer would have charged. As far as I am concerned, they have done an excellent job.

The mechanic who runs the garage wasn't thrown by the unusualness of the car at all. In fact he explained how many bits of it he'd seen before on various Nissans and Renaults...! Coincidentally enough he had a 350Z in for servicing that day as well.

So if anyone is based in SW London (Fulham sort of way) and would like a local garage recommendation for servicing on a FX or QX70, or indeed any other Infiniti, drop me a PM and I'll let you know their details.

Sounds like a successful experience. I’ll gladly take their details for future reference please. I would rather have multiple options in the South East area to choose from given I’m already having to travel west down the M4 from Reading.
