Not a big fan of the iPad sticking out of the dash. Still looks too much like a Honda Accord. Almost as if Acura was on a strict design budget. For the options and price available the car is a decent value without question.

It was kinda cool when I saw an A-spec for the first time. But, mind you, it is not a 400hp car.

Lately, I am liking my Q50 more and more as I am now manually turning off the collision assist from the menu (so steering feel can be in sport + ), putting the car in sport + , and putting it in manual shift.

I can keep the car in a better power range. My mpg is/was 17.1 when I was driving it in automatic mode, so it makes no difference to me.

If you are thinking about switching, don't. I contemplated an RS5 as an upgrade. Glad I didn't.

I really like my setup even with the 30# 275 sticky tires I am running. The car is so responsive and handles great. I would like to add better/bolstered seats and muck around by changing from RSR coilovers to Feal coilovers for stiffer spring and valving. Other than that, it is setup just fine.

I like my car a LOT. I don't love it like a G35 coupe, but I like it a lot.

Only power mod is my axle-back, but the car just goes because of other mods.

If anyone is in the San Jose area and want a ride, let me know. I will change your mind about the car.

Cheers!

I agree. VDC off, FEB off, Sport+, and manual shift. "It's ALIVE!" .. Really wakes things up!

Still dialing in my tune with Seb. 3 more log files off to him today.

Seems to be missing some 1500-2300 RPM power (feels like ECO mode). At 2500 it bursts to life.

Side Profile is a total q50 Rip Off. The rumors are an A-Spec version of this will have a 400 HP Twin Turbo. So I hope the next GEN Red Sport gets a bump in HP to 425 or so. Definitely need a refresh looks wise as well, while the Q50 RS looks aggressive and attractive, I've grown bored since this look has been out for going on 7 years now.

If it is less money than a new Q50 (at least 400 HP)and Infiniti doesn't do a total refresh by June of next year, I going to the TLX A-Spec. I had a TL before loved it. No issues. My only issues with the A-Specs is that there is not any more performance under the hood than the standard models

Yeah, it's either going to be a Type R 400 Version or A-Spec 400 but 400 HP is coming and it's all but confirmed. Alot of exciting things happening. Lexus is also going to be putting out an IS that has 400 HP along with rumors about bringing back the IS-F which will be close to or over 500 HP. It won't be a V8 though which sucks. Part of the IS-F appeal to me was the sound and being NA. Either way there are too many options to choose from and Infiniti better step their game up next model.

I have a friend that bought a TLX a few months before I bought the Red Sport. Four things kept me from the Acura: only 290 HP (only 40 more than my 2005 Subaru), electronic parking brake, button shifter, and non-latching auto stop/start. I suspect a few of these will haunt the next gen TLX also.

2018 Iridium Blue, AWD, Q50 Red Sport w/ Sensory and ProACTIVE packages and an illuminated grille emblem that is no longer anything special as my neighbor's lowly Chevy truck has one too.
