Woohoo! After 2+ months of shopping around and finding the colors/options I want, I picked up my vehicle yesterday. Black/Black Q50 RWD 3.7 Premium with everything ($52,680 MSRP). Still learning the car and adjusting a bit coming from my 2005 Altima V6.

Car has the latest software but couple things I noticed is that Intouch can be laggy sometimes and sometimes the Bose system sounds a bit funky.. even though they levels are all in the middle, something sounds off with the center-channel, like its trying to turn regular music into bad 5.1 surround sound.. not sure how to explain it.

Next thing is to get paint-protection film (3m, xpel, etc) installed. Any recommendations in the San Diego area?

Nice ride.. Have fun!
BTW CD's sound way better than XM. Give that a try.
I'll give that a try. By the way, I burned like 40 MP3s to a CD and tried playing them, but it gave me a Error reading disc error. I am able to play this on my wife's RX350 though.. I thought this car can read MP3 discs..anyone tried this?

Congrats on the car.

If it's the radio where you have the sound being off sometimes, turn off HD radio.
Sometimes a station will get stuck flipping between HD and Standard and it makes the sound really bad when that happens.

Otherwise, play with the setting in the InTouch.
It has a few settings like trying to make more sound come from the front center speak (I think I turned that off), the drivers stage which I think tries to make the stereo direct the sound as if the driver was the center of the speakers so to speak, and there was one other setting.

I notice the base stays pretty level at all volumes while the treble washes everything out at higher volumes. I turned the treble down, but it's something I noticed. Over all, I liked the Bose in my G37 better, but I'm still not exactly complaining about this system either.

Don't know these guys personally but they should be able to do a great job. I covered my entire Q with Suntek paint protection film.



Front bumper looked difficult but it was a breeze.



Had to put a seam near the C pillar so I didn't have to waste so much film



Designed the roof and made the sunroof just a bit too big :(
