$5000 is a lot of money, especially when added on top of the hybrid sport AWD I want to get which starts at $47,900. Are you guys planning to get the deluxe technology package? Do you guys think it is worth it?

Here is what the Infiniti website lists is in the Deluxe Technology package

Auto-dimming outside mirrors with reverse tilt-down feature
Dual occupant memory system for driver's seat, mirrors and steering wheel settings, linked to individual Intelligent Keys
Maple wood trim
Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Front and Rear Sonar Systems [*]
Rain-sensing front windshield wipers
Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) with auto-leveling headlights
High Beam Assist headlights (high/low automatic change)
Distance Control Assist (DCA) [*]
Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Blind Spot Intervention® (BSI®) Systems [*]
Back-up Collision Intervention (BCI) [*]
Front seat Pre-Crash Seat Belts
Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range) [*]
Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) [*]
Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) [*]
Lane Departure Warning (LDW) [*]
Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) with Active Lane Control [*]

Lots of safety features. DO you think they are worth it? What is worth it to you might not be for others.

Personally I like the auto adjusting headlights and the safety features could be worth it to me.

And this
"Dual occupant memory system for driver's seat, mirrors and steering wheel settings, linked to individual Intelligent Keys"

A must if you have more than 1 person driving the car.

The first time you're backing out of a parking space from between two SUV's and the car stops itself right before some idiot goes whizzing past your bumper, you'll be happy you spent the money (that's Backup Collision Intervention - BCI)

The first time you use Distance Control Assist (DCI) and it keeps you from bumping into a car at a stoplight while you're looking in your lap texting (not that any of us ever do that), you'll love it.

The first time the camera comes on, triggered by a front sonar sensor as you pull into your garage or a parking space - and it saves you clipping the front corner of your beautiful new car, you'll be psyched you spent the money.

The first time you're on a date and the Advanced Climate Control System senses methane in the cabin and kicks in the extra filter, you'll be slightly less embarrassed and happy.

And of course you'll use Intelligent Cruise and the blind spot warning every day.

Many of these features have been in the JX35 for a year now. The customers that opt for them (more than 75%, I'd say), love them. We've had two customers tell us that the BCI literally saved their butt.

Its one of my current gripes cuz I dont necessarily need everything in that package and since its bundled with the navi package, its holding me back from purchasing the Q50 already! I surely do want the Q50 Hybrid Sport and set on purchasing that so I might hold off till I can get the navi package by itself or just get the Q50 hybdrid sport without any add-on options then hopefully be able to add-on the navi pqckage later on!

Question though is that possible and if it is how much would it be to add that option?

I love your positive points!!!! Especially the one about Methane gas

"The first time you're on a date and the Advanced Climate Control System senses methane in the cabin and kicks in the extra filter, you'll be slightly less embarrassed and happy." :p

You should write the quotes for the Dos Equis commercial, for the worlds most interesting man. My favorite quote " he won the lifetime achievement award (pause)..................................TWICE" :D

Ditto...don't want all of it but some of it would be cool... More interested in the navi then the safety features..

Won't know for sure until the car is out. But on most other Infinitis, adding Navi as a stand-alone option after the fact, costs around $3K. At that point, a Garmin or TomTom looks mighty attractive.


But I'm not sure I'm reading your gripe correctly. You CAN order a Q50 Hybrid (sport or non-sport, AWD or RWD) with just the Navi package. Cost of Navi is $1400. You don't have to get the Deluxe Tech Package to get Navi. Navi package includes Navi (obviously), Sirius XM Traffic, and Infiniti Connection, including 1 year subscription. It deletes the compass from the rearview mirror.

Whats with Front seat Pre-Crash Seat Belts? What is it? I thought seat belt tensioners which just about every car has is enough?
From Infiniti:
Pre-Crash Seat Belts

Under severe braking conditions or under certain combinations of speed and steering input, the pre-crash system gently tightens the front seat belts, then releases this tension if braking stops and no impact occurs.

Unlike pretensioners, which are a one-time-use system linked to air bag deployment, the pre-crash system can apply and release belt tension as often as required during vehicle operation.

The system is designed to improve driver and front-passenger positioning in case of air bag deployment. Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. is the patent-holder for this technology and licenses it to other companies in the interest of sharing safety technology.


Pre-crash seatbelts do one other thing that's kind of cool. When you get in the car and put your seatbelt on, they gently snug the belt so that it is on correctly. And when you get out, the actively retract the belt - which serves the purpose of making sure it doesn't get stuck in the door and mess up the door jamb when you close the door.

Totally agree with Sinecure! I might not NEED every feature of the package, but those very unique, intellegent and high tech guided featuers are one HUGE reason I love Infiniti. I have benefited so much from the ones available on my previous EX35! The bird-view mirror, blind spot warning, touch screen, ..once I got them, I couldn't imagine drive without. :p And i'm so looking forward to the BCI because I had several very close calls! :eek:

it's really to each's own "priority". I do wish they seperate out a bit more so ppl can only choose the one they want, ..but unfortuantely it's all or none. ..

I can? Online, in the Q50 configurator, its been asking me to bundle it with the deluxe tech package and also asked OC Infiniti with the same answer! :-(

I could sure use that $5000 and use it towards other things!

I like the new Q50 but its pricing is out of whack. My 2010 G37x S was about $43K and the equivalent Q50 will come in at $49,450K. I checked with my local Infiniti dealer and was given a preliminary lease quote of $680 per month with $1682 down (15K miles a year/39 month term). This is a 35 percent premium to what I am currently paying for my G37. Johan de Nysschen has introduced an Audi pricing model to Infiniti and they're going to bleed a number of loyal customers as a result.

Love this write up lol.

You should make an ad for the Q50 about the Advanced Climate Control System with that very scenario. It would be hilarious.

LMFAO it would be a godsend if that was the case your car saving you from embarrassment. what was different in the previous M35/37 options from these. Is there anything different?
Not sure what exactly the difference is. usually the M class would have a couple more premium options and feature than the G series (Q50/Q60). A couple things were mentioned like for ventilated seats and a hud system if there were to be any of those it will be more likely to see it in the Q70 ( previous M class).

There are only a few things in the M that the Q50 lacks. I was talking with one of the sales reps who went to the Texas test drive and he's of the opinion that selling M's is going to be hard once the Q50 is here. The added couple inches of the Q50 makes the back seat legroom issue almost moot, and the tech in the 50 is so amazing.

Some M things I can think of that aren't in Q50:
Suede-like headliner
Silver rubbed wood
Power rear sunshade
V8 engine
Forest Air system (not much different IMO from ACCS)
Power folding mirrors (we still haven't determined if Q50 has this)
Power closing trunk lid
Cooled seats

But like all Infinitis, options are not offered a-la-carte. They are always bundled in packages. IMO, customers should like this. It makes negotiating pricing on a car more predictable and comparable from dealer to dealer.

But, in my opinion, bundling the Navigation Package and the Deluxe Technology package doesnt really make sense! :S

Saw an official Infiniti pamphlet with MSRP last night at Sewell. You are able to get the Sport with Navigation without bundling.
Awesome!!! Thanks for that info! :D

Yeah, for these first release/early production bundles, I expect them to change a lot in a few months.

What we see on the website and how the packages are configured shouldn't be a reflection of a hard group of selections. As it's been pointed out, just work it out with your dealer and see if they can't get you exactly what you want and if not, you might just have to wait a couple of months until it's available or until the bundles re-organize.

I'm not that interested in the Hybrid, so the "Deluxe Technology Package" isn't really something that's on my mind---with that said, you're getting a ton of features for that extra 5 grand---a lot of other cars in the segment wouldn't let you get quite so much tech for such a price--even if they don't all appeal to you.

I ordered my AWD hybrid without the navigation or tech packages - I have no use for them. However, I DO want the maple trim, and since it has nothing to do with the electronics of the other two packages, I thought that Infiniti could make an exception for me, and let me order it. They said absolutely not - can't do(my feeling was that if I gave them a check for a million dollars, they'd find a way.:rolleyes:) I contacted Infiniti, and their representative contacted the general manager of the dealership, whom I've been working with. So, there are now two possibilities: If someone who gets the tech package doesn't want the maple, the dealer will swap the two trims. If not, then when the maple trim becomes available as a part, the dealer will install it for cost. My concern is that it won't look like factory installed, but I was assured that it would look the same. WHEN the maple becomes available, who knows, but it's the best I could do.:(
