I really like the JX as a family vehicle, but I want something in blue. Is is at all realistic to ask an Infiniti dealer to try and order a JX with "Blue Slate" as the exterior color? (Currently available on the G25/37) I was thinking that if they have the paint for the G, it might not be too outrageous. (Hoping to get a Blue Slate with Java interior, since my kids would destroy the "wheat" in hours...). Thanks. Maybe I'd be looking at an additional change for the inconvenience?

Posting once is enough, you didn't have to post the same question 3 times.

They usually add new colours to next years models.

They likely will decline or charge you to repaint the car. You are better off repainting it yourself. Or just wait until new colors are available.

I had inquired about that when I originally purchased the JX, I had seen the Asgard Grey on the FX and really liked that color. I was told that ordering that color for the JX was out of the question even if I was willing to pay for it.

Nissan / Infiniti doesn't manufacture all vehicles at all plants. The JX is made outside of Nashville. Just because a color belongs to a manufacturer doesn't mean they have that paint available at any plant for any vehicle. Some luxury brands (Porsche, Audi, & BMW among others) will paint any color you want for a fee. Most assembly lines simply arent's set up for this. Given the popularity of the JX and the backlog in production, they're not going to disrupt production for a custom paint. As others have said, if you have to have the color, take a JX off the lot and have it professionally repainted.

This is the correct answer. Audi manufactures most of it's cars in the same location and they share a paint plant. So you can get a custom color on a R8 applied to your S4 for $2,500. This is not cheap but surprisingly a very popular option. Great way to really customize your car. They also go beyond the paint customization into color for leather and a whole variety of other items. It's a sweet program. But Infiniti cannot do this with the JX because it's somewhat isolated from the rest of what Nissan does globally from a manufacturing perspective.

Like I said if you want the color that badly just paint it yourself. A good quality paint job will cost over $2000.
