2003 Infiniti G35 from North America
Do not purchase a vehicle from Infiniti with a 'Bose' system.
I purchased my car in 2003, brand new, with the premium package upgrade (see website for list).
Upon having to replace the audio system entirely, it was brought to my attention that the Bose audio system that's listed in the package is not actually a Bose audio system. When one thinks of audio system, that includes radio, CD changer, cassette player, etc. I was told that the radio/CD changer component is actually a Clarion. The only thing that is supposedly Bose are the speakers, even though the front panel on the radio system says "Bose". In my opinion, this is false advertisement. If the only thing that is Bose are the speakers, then that's what should be advertise, not Bose Audio system. I am very upset because I paid a pretty good amount to have the system replaced to find that it isn't what I was trusting Infiniti to actually put in their vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hey, I can understand the frustration of buying a new car and paying for premium package, but it is known to people that they use BOSE speakers only. It's a good heads up to research what you buy, especially for that much!

A Bose system in a car is always just the speakers mated with a Clarion head unit. Nissan always uses Clarion.
