I used to watch Driving Television a lot online and I remember this reviewer. His name is Zach and his review convinced me I had to get the G35x!

Here is his review of the Q50:

This guy (Zack) certainly seem like he spend some time with the Q50 and does his research well. Definitely agree the Q50 is the best bang for the buck.

That said, I am not sold on those small rims and the Premium model look though. I think the Q50 must have at least the sport wheels and the body kit.

Don't know if I'm biased, but the review is how i feel about the car all around.

I am right there with you. I think we all need to get together and do our own reviews and upload them to all the sites of the past reviewers. The meet up of course would be in Charlotte!:D

He did a good job without the annoying "attitude" of many US reviewers. I totally agree with his statement that "he feels like he is an extension of the car". This is how I feel with some cars which makes driving them a great, effortless experience. This is how I felt on my road trip from Oceanside, CA to Phoenix, AZ. I and the car were "one".
Hmmm. Another reason to move to Canada??

The premium model vs the sport is matter of preference, of course(personally, I like both of them). But I have to laugh at the comment about the "small rims." In the long ago past, cars came with 13", 14" and 15" rims, the largest being found only on the largest cars(which were WAY larger than today's). To me, cars with 20" and larger rims make the car look like caricatures of the real thing. As I said in a previous post, the teenage mentality doesn't understand the concept of "less is more." Gilding the lily just doesn't improve the look of the lily.

TOTALLY agree with his statement about the Germans (BMW for sure IMO) vs the Q-50 on the inside when he says they "feel dull and dated" and the Q-50 feels "fresh & modern"!

+1

When Car and Driver came out with their first "review," and stated that the interior was unexciting(among other things), I had to reply, and sent an e-mail to their "letters" editor(it will be interesting to see if they actually publish it in the next issue). One of my points was how dated and boring the interior(and exterior) of the 3-series was - as well as the interior of the IS - and I thanked them for letting us know ahead of time who the winner of their comparison was going to be.:rolleyes:

I like the 19" rims better but when you get to 20" it starts to look like a Hot Wheels more than a car. True about the rim size from long ago. My Mom had an Olds 98 that was 225" long and 80" wide and came with 15" wheels. They seemed big at the time.

To be honest I never really liked his reviews. Although he did make points that I support when comparing the Q to a 3 series. First time Ive seen a review done in BC.. north vancouver if im not wrong.
