^^^ If anyone knows, it's the official corporate marketing intern. Glad to have you with us! I believe it and stopped by my dealer this afternoon. They don't have a single Q50 on their lot yet, and quoted the August date also.Haha, I saw a few of his posts yesterday. This is why dealerships need to be more careful with the information they tell their potential clientele! Infiniti corporate has always maintained a Summer 2013 release date, then moved it to Later Summer 2013, and have now moved it to August 5th. Whatever dates dealers were announcing (I saw some Youtube videos announcing a June release) were based on internal information that was never meant to be announced to the public--for obvious reasons, too, as things change in such a large-scale project as a vehicle launch.
you should be able to take your Q50 home after August 5th (official date), real date depends on your dealer, because they need to make sure they have green light from Infiniti for test drive (sooner than Aug 10th).Hmm.. I'm a bit confused. So for the dealers with Q50s on their lots, are they still not able to let anyone take them home till 8/5? Is that the release date of the software update?
Or is the required software update available before then?
I was told my car was at the port in CA and would be shipped up to Washington State around 1-2 weeks (this was about a week ago). I'm wondering if I'll be able to take it home (or at the very least, test drive it) before 8/5.
So is the possibility of taking it home before the 5th still there? Or is that no longer something we can hope for?
Wouldn't hold your breath there MCDan. Maybe Infiniti will hand out paper sacks with logos on them that we can huff into until the 5th.
THAT! Is AWESOME!!! I have always wanted a direct connect to Infiniti marketing! Lol. I have thought of some KILLER marketing ideas in my free time.Is there anyway that I could have that information as like a little signature at the end of my posts, in the spirit of transparency?
Absolutely. Hit the tiny "User CP" link on the top right under Site Navigation, then look on the left for the Edit Signature. You can add an avatar there also.Is there anyway that I could have that information as like a little signature at the end of my posts, in the spirit of transparency?
Oooohhhhh why'd ya say that! Lol, j/k But yeah there is DEF room for improvement. Particularly the M/Q70. Marketing for that car is pretty much non-existent as far as I can tell besides web banners. But I am excited at the fact that once its refreshed, which I am imagining will be pretty extensive, they can pretty much go at it like its a complete new model and the masses wouldn't know.I personally believe that we are going to be coming out with some pretty amazing stuff for the Q50, but of course it will all be up to how the market responds to it. I agree with you on the fact that this vehicle is critical for the brand. It's a crucial first step on a journey to build a more competitive brand-- one that is top-of-mind for any luxury buyer.
That's the first thing I thought when I saw this thread lolBenW is going to murder someone if this is true.
