In order to have he LSD you needed to have opted for the sport package ... It came with the Viscous limited slip diff... It should still be avail on the Q I did not see any mention of a deletion...I had no idea that the G37 coupe had a LSD on it...so, if that's the case..
My best guess is that it'll likely be on the Q60 coupe like it was before.
You're right. The VLSD is added to all G37 sedans and coupes as part of the Sport Package (RWD only) and is standard on the G37S MT.CFRP, it's a viscous limited-slip differential on the G35 / G37 sedans and coupes..
Thanks for providing your perspective on this. With this being your 4th G/Q50, I'm sure you'll love it. I hope everything works out and hopefully you'll be around when you take delivery and post some wonderful photos!Regarding the pre-order: It's a $500 refundable deposit to get the car I want ordered the way I want it. If the seats are too tight, or the color is wrong, or the wheels are too dark, or the wheel gap is too wide (a distinct possibility based on some of the photos I've seen), or the electric steering is too numb and / or splays the front wheels in opposite directions on the test drive... you get the idea.
And if I happen to love the car, it's right there. Price is already negotiated. I'll take it! So for me there's really nothing to lose.
Unless they monumentally screw up the Q, it'll be the fourth G that's run through our family. I love these cars. BMW, Audi and Cadillac keep trying to lure me in, but after each test drive I seem to find my way back to the Infiniti dealer. I have no idea what's wrong with me.
Yeah as nice as an electric steering system can be, it just isn't the best thing if you want a true driving experience, meaning you want to feel as engaged with the car as possible.I was pretty against electric steering when everyone switched over. Since then I have driven some very well tuned electric systems. But you can really mess one up badly.. I still love how hydraulic feels.
Yes it does. Please do not remind me. If the car weren't such a shrunken, slowish little turd with GM's interpretation of how to build MyFord Touch, but worse, I might have considered it just for the differential.Hmm, I just remembered/noticed that the Cadillac ATS has a true LSD on it.
Aww, and I thought I was harsh....Yes it does. Please do not remind me. If the car weren't such a shrunken, slowish little turd with GM's interpretation of how to build MyFord Touch, but worse, I might have considered it just for the differential.
The customization aspect is what will be great about the electric steering. Sharpen it up or loosen it up depending on your mood, the terrain, etc. You can adjust turns lock-to-lock and effort independently.Yeah as nice as an electric steering system can be, it just isn't the best thing if you want a true driving experience, meaning you want to feel as engaged with the car as possible.
Good example of thing being done in the industry is in the new Bentley Mulsanne, even as a 2013 model vehicle priced at 1/4 million dollars it has a rack and pinion power steering setup. I thought this was stupid and that an electric steering system would be better, but I was reminded at how much of a driver focused brand Bentley is and it made sense.
The CUE in the ATS I looked at was dog-slow, and that little haptic interface that senses your impending touch is just a terrible idea. My wife's Honda has a simple touch-screen navigation / multimedia system, and I can't count the number of times I've hit a small bump or transition in the road while reaching toward an onscreen "button," only to whack the one next to it by mistake. Doing the same in the CUE will be geometrically more frustrating because it has the potential to happen much more often as the system attempts to sense where your finger is headed as the car is moving you -- and more importantly, your pointing finger -- all over the place in the cabin.... but the CUE system--as I mentioned in my review, it's an OK system if you're willing to put up with its quirks for a few months while you get used to it.
Wow,...that's extremely moot.Plus, the car is six inches shorter than the Q, itself not exactly a limousine. Stubby little thing. Sort of embarrassing in size, really.
Of course. But I'll never understand why manufacturers build premium four-door sedans with backseats usable only by midgets and small children. The Sentra has a HUGE backseat in comparison to the ATS. And even if it didn't, I wouldn't mark it off because it is a $16K econobox. But a tiny Cadillac sedan? They'll sell a bunch to rich college girls and real estate ladies. Many men will turn their noses up and head over to the CTS.Wow [your comment on the relative smallness of the ATS]...that's extremely moot...
I mean a car's size is objectively for the driver to decide if it suits their needs.
