Ummm, strange videos, but cool nonetheless!

I believe this is our first time seeing the Graphite Shadow Sport model in a video with some nice angles.

I know! Short and with no additional video! It just sucks that we barely have any videos about the Q50! I wanna hear the exhaust sound, wanna see what they think of its ride comfort and how it handles conrners, more in depth review of the adjustable steering, etc! :(

I'd be willing to bet those reviews will be right around the corner with the press event happening the 23rd-26th of this month Infiniti will likely make sure all press is silent until they give the go ahead to release reviews ...so I'm thinking right when lexus is 350 is avail in dealerships in June thy will release reviews to try and sway buyers ...

Yea and I cant wait for that! Hehe! Been talking to a dealer and seems like first shipment of the Q50 is out by late July so they better hurry and kinda got sad news that they cant do anything about the bundling of the navi and the deluxe tech packages! :-(

Any chance they unbundle those packages down the road and if they do, how long till that usually happens?

It took about 9 months on the JX before we could order a car without the Drivers Assistance or Tech package. Who knows on this one.

Exhaust sound - Sounds pretty awesome
Ride comfort - firm and responsive, but with the usual comfort you'd expect from an Infiniti
Cornering/steering - surprisingly, better than regular power-steering... hard to describe, you have to feel it yourself

Haha! Its all good! Cant wait to drive one myself especially now that you've answered some of my questions! But I still have a couple more!

- I was thinking of eventually changing into coilovers, would that affect any electronically set settings in the Q50? Cuz seeing as there is no adaptive suspension then I assume I could freely do that!

- What is the difference between the hybrid and the non-hybrid braking system? I believe the hybrid is listed as Regenerative Braking System

I know I have a lot more questions but seeing as I just woke up, I still havent gathered all my thoughts yet! Hehe!

Sorry I took a while to respond - didn't know the specifics myself so had to ask!

According to the lads downstairs that shouldn't be a problem.

The Q50 will have electronic braking (as a necessity, considering the hybrid model) but there's been no word as to whether this will be changed on the base model. I wouldn't have thought so, and we've had no word of that.

Regarding my last post...

Just as a heads up it's a wishbone front and multi-link back suspension system. Don't know if that makes a difference...

Also regarding the braking system there's conflicting information from different people, so i'm sending an email onwards and upwards to find out!

Word back - My previous statement was incorrect, just a lovely sales guy who was very eager to help me out had some wires crossed:

Both models have hydraulic braking. Electronic booster in the Hybrid for regenerative braking.

Eugh.

Not entirely helpful to be on the inside of Infiniti Europe when this is really an Infiniti NA forum though!

Truly appreciate all the info you've given! It helps a lot qnd gets me more excited into getting the car! The only trouble I have left, i think, is the bundling of the Navi Package and the Deluxe Tech Package here in NA that of which I dont need the $5000 from the deluxe tech! So another question is:

If I do opt in not getting the Navigation Package, what would be my options in getting navi to my Q50?
