Apparently, Infiniti told dealers to only install the 10/24 InTouch update that enables SiriusXM Travel Link on unsold cars, not on existing customers' cars. Why the **** is Infiniti punishing early adopters like this? I really feel like Infiniti sold me a beta product and now that they got my money, they don't give a crap about making it right.

I don't like that at all. Infiniti better don't charge me for the DAS software update. If they do, this will be my first and last Infiniti :mad:

Seriously? Infiniti is going to charge existing customers for this update? WTF?!?

WTF? COME ON MAN! We need to demand Infiniti update us for free (Sport models). Now they are going to P me off.

Sounds like all the boy racers have their briefs twisted over this. I didn't realize so many Q50 buyers bought their cars for the racetrack. I have no problem with the DAS on my Hybrid Sport. However, I haven't taken it to the track, nor do I intend to.

That's not the point. I personally don't have any major beef with the DAS. But for those customers who don't like it, why is Infiniti going to charge them for a software update that they are putting into all new vehicles going forward?

I don't believe this statement, it's misleading. I think undisclosed amount if undisclosed is "zero"

If there is enough outrage I am sure they will not charge for the update. Because obviously this is bulls**t if the early adopters have to pay for what should have been tested and fully engineered before the Q came out.

The software update is the least you should be mad about. From the article:

In pre-update cars, it was this feeling, combined with the setup’s lightning-quick reactions, that led to another reported issue: drivers turning into corners too abruptly and unsettling the car, which responded with excessive oversteer. To counter this and to dial in some understeer, Infiniti will offer a new Sport package for rear-wheel-drive models that encompasses lighter forged aluminum wheels and wider 265/35R19 rear performance tires. (The front rubber will remain 245/40R19s.)
So the new RWD Q50S will be better than ever and with revised DAS. Then again, I miss the tail-happy feeling of my old G35. My new car just stays planted.

i think the wheels are another option ON TOP of the RWD sport. maybe a sport plus package of some sort? im sure 90% of the people who buy the Q50 rwd dont care about a staggered setup, plus i like the fact i can put my car into a slide whenever i want

Yeah, Yeah, YEAH!!!!!


Lynch those MF'ers. Oh ****, lynch the f'ing dealers too. Yeah, F them!


C&D said it is so. Therefore it must be true. See! It's right there in an article on the intertubes. I read it on the interweb so it must be true. Journalists never get anything wrong.


Chill the F out people.

It says for "an undisclosed amount" and therefore some idiot writing it assumed that meant paying. Seriously? I've already done this for customers.

You all read the threads here. You know that the standard line is that if you have 1.7, Infiniti is not offering to pay the dealers to update you to 1.9 just for the sake up updating. In other words, it isn't free. Has anyone paid to go from 1.7 to 1.9? Anyone? See what I mean.

It's like those bumper stickers that say wag more bark less.
Drive more, whine less.

Save your vitriol, hubris and outrage for something worthwhile. Like the lack of cooled seats.

I'm with you in this. I have reservations about the veracity of some comments in that rag. I dropped my subscription awhile ago, as they have been going with some immature writers.

So... Is this update available at the dealer yet? .... If so, when?

Also, I doubt Infiniti will charge for it. Doesn't make sense.

While I agree that any update shouldn't be charged for - and I CAN'T believe that Infiniti would be so oblivious as to do so - I totally agree with what you said. I'm sure that the vast majority of buyers will never come close to a race track with their cars. I am perfectly happy with the steering(and I've had three Gs, including the first coupe). And by the way, unless I'm misreading the article, it sounds like the update is only for RWD sport models, so it doesn't concern me at all.

The way I see it, Infiniti will have the upgrade on the system. They don't charge the dealers for the download, so it is up to the dealer to decide if they want they want to charge the client. I'm sure 99.9% of them will do it for free.

Didn't their last article say the suspension changes with the driving mode too? I wouldn't get too upset just yet. C&D isn't Infiniti. They probably didn't think to ask if there was a cost for the upgrade and exercised poor journalistic judgement by adding that verbiage.

My guess is that the updates for software will not have a charge by Infiniti and it's probably best to wait and see anyway before getting upset about it. Just my $.02. . .

I completely agree, before the torches are lit and the villagers march to Smyrna we should probably wait to see what happens when they come out with the full release version.

Having worked for Infiniti for almost 10 years now I find it highly unlikely the first time they would charge owners for a software update would be on a new model like the Q50, and on a system like DAS.

If it were to happen anywhere (ABSOLUTELY NO PROOF THAT THIS WOULD EVER HAPPEN!) it would probably be an AV optional update in the future.
