Why do they tease us with all these pictures and reviews of the q50 with the performance package?? When will we see this model in showrooms?
Brought my Q50 Hybrid in this morning to have the DAST recall performed. Saw those wheels/tires on a Hagane Blue Q50s 3.7 gasser sitting on the show room floor with I believe a $56K sticker.

So I think its arrived.

It was mostly good.
This is the sumation.
I think it's griping abou what all the reviews gripe about.
It doesn't quite have the sporty feel that the G37/G35 gave you.

"The Q50S has evolved into a genuine world-class luxury sedan, materializing as a much better car than the G37 ever was. But its heavy polish and refinement have stolen much of its sporty appeal. The third-generation Infiniti has unquestionably matured – but likely at the expense of its original youthful demographic."

Well, it seemed like they weren't overwhelming positive about it, even without DAS...

I still kinda feel like people aren't willing to fall in love with the Q50 unless it blows everyone else out of the water. It's a trait that's hard to overcome in this near luxe segment.

It seems that those who come to the Q50 expecting simply an update to the G37 are sorely disappointed. Yet those (like me) coming to it with no previous G37 driving experience (and instead from a BMW 3-series) seeking a higher-tech, more luxurious ride (and a hybrid) are much more pleased with the Q50. To me it's simply a better value proposition because of what I valued in my next car.

Others, including many reviewers hang tenaciously to what they loved about the G37 and can't let go of those preconceptions of what they thought the Q50 was going to be.

I would love to see those wheels as an option for the q50s of mine that hasn't arrived yet from Japan. I cannot see what tyres are on there, hopefully they are not run-flats.

Waiting 100 days makes you consider changing: model years, options, cars, packages....i'm so bored just waiting..these forums would make you think this car is junk. Which I know it isn't. I am happy I decided DAS was too early in its life to even consider as an option. However the "in-touch" was a big selling point to me.

Does anyone know if they switched tyres as well as the wheels? if so what the replacements are?
