Just went to the unveiling of the Infiniti Q50 in Cerritos! Nothing really new in terms of info but at least I got to see, feel, and appreciate the car in person! They only had the Q50 Sport though! Wish they brought in the hybrid version! From what i've seen, I have now learned to appreciate the 19" wheels which looked sweeter in person! Still fully not my cup of tea but it seems like it looks better in person! The taillights looked nice in person as well! The brow was kinda iffy for me but they actually looked nice! Tried to get a better picture for u guys but it just doesnt translate that well in pics! Probably needed a better angle! Room for the back seats were nice! It was roomy and quite cozy but then again I am only 5'6! Steering wheel felt nice! love the grip and beef of it! Loved how the shift knob felt as well! For the infiniti intouch system, its like what afrosheen has been saying! Still laggy and not that fluent! I didnt get to spend that much time tinkering with it but basically afrosheen's view on the system as spot on!

Anyways, on to the pics! Enjoy! :D

Its all good bro! I think I used too much contrast, changing the colors a bit! Was just kinda in a hurry editing and sharing them for u guys! :D

Had to use an ultra wide angle lens to try and capture that feeling! Hehe!

Great pictures!
Any feel as to whether the seats are more comfortable than the G, despite the 2" less hiproom? The G's sport seats are really skinny.
Hmmm it did feel a little uncomfortable up front but I think it was mostly because the seats werent positioned the way I liked it! I think im still going to another event next week and ill try to come in a bit later so I have the car basically all to myself! Haha!

Hey, I was at there also. Yeah, the Q50 sure looks nice in person compare to pictures.
I like it so much I pre-order the Q50 Sport Hybrid with Deluxe Technology package. They require $500 deposit which is refundable if you don't buy the car. Pricing is exactly MSRP. They will not deal at all, but at least they did not jack up the price above MSRP. The salesman say they might get it sometime mid-July. I highly doubt it since many other people pre-order elsewhere say sometime in August. Either way, I can wait since I need to save up more money for down payment.
If I am to buy a car, it must have a nice interior along with a good sound system.
The interior is certainly very nice, very comfortable to sit. But how about the sound system.
I manage to get the salesguy to play some music with very low volume and I can tell it does sound immersive. You can really felt the bass engulf you even at a very low volume. I wish I can crank it up, but too many people around to do that.
Can't wait to test drive this baby!

Nice! Dang! Didnt get to try out that sound system! I forgot about that! I might still go to the southbay infiniti unveiling on the 18th so I might try and ask if we can do that but from the videos from baton rogue, it seems like the sound system is awesome!

Great pics Gbert!! It's funny to see how big an event some dealers are making the launch and others not so much.

I think this speaks to Infiniti's need to get their stuff together in trying to move upmarket. Some launches have a harp player, casino themes, etc. This one had balloons - definitely balloons :) I realize there are all kinds of markets and local favors dictate a lot of these this but couldn't Infiniti have set a minimum bar for some items to have at these launch parties?

To me, this is just an example of how far they need to go to get to their goal of premium pricing and perception vs other luxury brands.

Ok, back on topic - great pics Gberta! Is it me or does anyone think it's weird he took all of these pics but didn't post a single video ;). Just kidding - great to see some of the details!

The profile of the rear taillight and quarter panel by itself is the first picture that O've seen where I thought I could really recognize the G's DNA in the Q.

Also just noticed how much nicer it should be to have the cup holder off to the right. I don't like driving my G with more than 1 cup in the cemter concole cup holder. Too intrusive if you drive with your hand on the shifter. Can't even imagine on a manual G. Always saw the cup holder setup, I Guess the close pics made it stand out more for me. Probably something you notice more when you get to sit in one.

Any feedback on the center display functions (between the speedo & tach)? Not a big deal but trying to figure out if its a glorified G scene with nicer graphics (like the JX) or if it will finally be a useful tool with nav info, song info, etc.

Again, Great post Gbert!! Thanks for taking the time!

Those are the best pictures I've seen yet, especially the interior shots. Thanks! My first day with the car will be spent applying the paint sealant(that I've already gotten), and prepping the inside as well.

Thanks bro! I tried to get as much pics as I can but lighting was kinda hard in some areas and since I was using my sony nex, i was also able to get some hard to shoot angles! Hmmm...never bothered playing with the guage cluster so many people going in and out of the car and was also busy getting appraisal for my trade-in! I guess I was more awestruck by how the car looked in person thats why i got more fixated to taking more pics! Sorry bro, I know it was ironic too that I would be the one that didnt have any vids! Haha! Thing is I havent used the video function on my nex! Was suppossed to use my phone but batt was dead since I jist came from work that day! Ill try to get vids next week if I still decide to go to another event!

Good collection of pics, gives better feel what to look out for. Production Q50s arrive at LA-Long Beach port on June 25th and dealers will have Q50s in show room before the 4th of July week end. Most dealers won't get more than 6 cars for now.
