Every review I see for the Hybrid has the Sport Model.
Has anyone seen anything for the non sport?

Mainly I'm wondering about the braking (60-0).
It looked like on a G37 there really wasn't a difference in 60-0 braking between the normal and sport brakes.
But the Q50 Hybrid is a bit heavier. Does that let the sport brakes differentiate a bit under normal driving?

I'm guessing handling is very similar between the hybrid and hybrid sport since they both have the sport suspension ,but I'm curious about that as well.
Any numbers out there?


Thanks

Hybrid sport brakes also stop the car very quickly. One of the recurring themes on this forum has been that the sport seats are VERY comfortable. I agree that they are, but some people have had issues with the non-sport seats. I would suggest you test drive both to see if that is an issue for you.

Haha.. The comment about about the seats is great. There are posts here where people (Including myself) have had issues with the sports seats and like the seats in the premium.

It's simple. Drive the sport and premium a few times and you decide.

Oh as for brakes. I have the Non Hybrid premium and the standard brakes are great.

I have the non sport hybrid and the brakes are great. I drove both the sport and non sport, and didn't see the need for the sport amenities. Yes, the seats are a little better in the sport version but my wife and I love the seats in our car.

The only reason I could see that the sport may stop slightly better would be because of the rubber, not the brakes. Sport tires probably have a slightly better contact patch.

I have the non- sport hybrid. Breaks are fine. As they say "stops on a dime gives you nine"

I have the hybrid non sport and while the breaks are sensitive (IMO), they have not failed me so far.
Isn't that an oxymoron?

That may be fine with you, but I don't want anything breaking on my car.

I think we've found selzini's pet peeve... :p
Yes, but he has done a good job of restraining himself. I've noticed a number of posts recently using "text speech" (u kno wat Im talkin bout) - I would assume that is about ready to send him over the wall.

Didn't I see a post earlier where he had admitted to being a retired teacher?

I like my non-sport brakes as it is not as jerky as the F-sport brakes on the 3IS.

It was a little annoying. At the very end the car would jerk instead of stopping smoothly.

There is a slight jerk near the end of a stop in the non-Sport Q50, but not as bad as the Fsport.

Yes, I feel I've restrained myself quite a bit, and yes, I'm a retired teacher, but not English(Math). Whether I was a teacher or not, it's depressing to see so many people who have such a poor grasp of the language, and don't seem to care. I'm not talking about typos, or even the texting short cuts(though it can be annoying). And I don't put it all on the public. In the last five to ten years of teaching, I saw the changes that were going on, where there was no emphasis on learning the basics of the language(spelling, grammar, syntax). That problem isn't just in the teaching of English. With the advent of technology in the classroom(which I wholeheartedly endorse), students are not learning the basic concepts of math. It took a lot to contain myself when a student told me not to explain something, but to just show him what keys to push on his calculator. If it were up to me, calculators would be banned in elementary school, at least until the basics were learned. After retiring, I volunteered in a high school's math lab after hours, and it was stunning to see students in Algebra! classes who literally needed a calculator to see if 12 was divisible by 3. If they didn't know that, how the heck were they going to understand how to factor algebraic expressions? Too many didn't even know how to multiply(and of course, divide) by 10, 100, etc., without a calculator. It's depressing as **** to see the U.S scoring so low compared to rest of the world.

Sorry about the rant, but those who are in my age group, or who work in human resources of companies, can understand what I'm talking about. To be honest, there have been some posts here that I had to stop reading, since they didn't seem to make sense. There are others where I just have to shake my head. And just to clarify, I'm not jumping on those whose first language isn't English - they write better English than I would write in their first language. There may be a couple of people who read this who I've sent private messages to, when it's obvious they don't know something common, such as the abbreviation, "etc.," which is short for "etcetera." Therefore, the abbreviation ISN'T "ect." I don't want to come across as a grammar Nazi, or embarrass anyone, but sometimes certain things just hit me at a bad time.

Thanks for listening. And if there are any current teachers here, I hope you understand what I'm saying. And parents: I don't know about what you're doing with your kids, but my parents would actually correct our English if we made mistakes at home; it wasn't to embarrass us, but to help us, and I'm glad they did. My parents didn't have a great educational background(heck, my father had to drop out of school when he was 13 years old, and my mother just did graduate from high school), but they had four children who all got good educations, and college degrees.

Those who have been on this forum since the Spring, know I don't text, Tweet, go to Facebook, or any other social media, so I am not used to having to deal with all of this. Again, sorry for the rant. Simpson and SnowItch, you just gave me the opening I needed to get this off my chest. So, the rest of you, please blame them.:rolleyes::D

I guess we (or I should say the schools) did something right. Our teenage daughter frequently corrected my wife and me:D She's a Sr. in college now - but she went to a magnet school that has been ranked #1 in the nation several years - some some schools are still teaching the basics.

I've already tried explaining to selzini how forums/chat rooms/message boards work and how internet grammar/communication just ain't the same as what I'd consider formal/textbook speech. I know where he's coming from and yeah it's not something you can get used to overnight but it's just part of the magic of the internet community. :D

I know what you are saying, and my complaint isn't really with the "shortcuts." It's with the obvious lack of English proficiency being required in schools these days. It doesn't take any longer to spell a word correctly than it does to misspell it. It's usually pretty easy to figure out whether something is a typo(which should be corrected before posting) or a texter's "shortcut," or just plain lack of knowledge. The recent release of the international test scores, which show that the United States is continuing to fall further behind the rest of the educated world, should be a wake-up call to us, but I don't think that is happening to as many people as it should. It's mostly those under 30 who have the "whatever" attitude about such things, and they will pass that on to THEIR children. Eventually, we in this country will pay the price(if we haven't already). Again, I'm sorry for the speech, but I had to answer, if just to clarify what I said.

I am responsible for drafting policy and procedure at work and I spend a great deal of time making sure everything is correct, including flow and structure, not just grammar.

I'll be the first to admit that I just let it slide when I write on a message board, text or instant message. Granted, I do ensure that it still reads as English but I see nothing wrong with being a little lazy when it comes to casual communication.

Frankly, the schools where I grew up were TERRIBLE unless you could afford private school (we could not). I was constantly corrected at home by my parents (both were English majors), so maybe I'm just lashing out at them now! :D
