For the fellow Q followers who can care less if with no pic, ...

Lets start with how my MB looks yesterday on a very typical WA cloudy day. I actually requested my sales lady to double check and make sure it IS my MB since its exactly like a black car, although still strikingly beautiful. :)

Then today, God knows I need to show off some real color... :p (All taken by iPhone 5, no photo-shop or editing. ..)

There! :). Feel free to skip the rest of my "experience" if you just wanted to see some pic.

... Actually, let me just send those first to see if it works, then post some experiences... :)

Good, it worked! :)

So here's the story.

It's been one of the best and most beautiful summers in Seattle... until about 2 days ago when it started to rain, pouring rain. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind rain! Actually I miss rain if its been dry for several days.. :). But not this time! I have been so very patiently waiting for my MB to arrive and hoped to enjoy the unique purple hue in the precious sun. After a LONG 3.5 months, finally I'm going to pick up the beauty, the sun hides away...

Yesterday morning, still pouring rain, foggy, stormy, ...I drove 1.5hrs to the dealer and was 30 min early for my delivery appointment. The sales lady told me how thoroughly the guys washed, detailed and prepared my car. "Not even a finger print!" She bragged. I almost laughed at her car-washing statement, but when I saw the car. I was HAPPY! She is beautiful! Tinted, with all weather matts and cargo net, so shiny, so elegant, so striking, and .. so black. :) I couldn't resist but politely requested for the original slip and other paper to make sure it IS indeed my MB! :D

The rest is just the routine delivery. The lady is very knowledgable, and obviously was glad to show off all the training she received for Q. She explained all the features; She sets up my user profile, driving mode, iPhone connection, personal assistant, .. And I was able to listen to the text finally! (Hoping the new update will let me reply like those androids SOON! :( )

Finally, 4.5 hrs later, I was on my way back home. Fri afternoon work traffic on a so very crowded I-5! :( I dared not to use the cruise control in the bumper to bumper traffic during the 1st hr after I'm sitting behind the wheel, no matter how intelligent it is, and how helpful it could've been helpful as I saw on my past test drive. However, at least the rain stopped. And I noticed how often the green EV sign was on during the "parking" traffic. - This is something very new to me and I found myself fascinated by the "energy flow chart" during the drive. Psychologically it's very rewarding, I think! :p. But of course I could also ignore that and had some fun picking up the speed and enjoy the sporty ride! This car is simply awesome!

And I LOVE the lights! Even the parking lights! I noticed the reflection in the window of the store today when I approached and parked. Look at those eagle eyes! Too bad I couldn't capture a good enough pic, but I figured we already have some good ones here on the forum.

Today is a new day! Sunshine, high 60s. I took my new baby out for some casual driving, and took some pictures. I'm still getting used to the dead silence when she moves. :) Every time I park the car or before I go back to the car, I stop and admire her beauty.

And every time I carefully wipe off any visible finger print on the car...Something I NEVER did in the past ... :)

Thank you for your patience! Hope you are (will be) enjoying your Q50 as I do! :D

Thx! :)

I mentioned almost all pluses. Hubby was ver impressed too, commenting how responsive and fast she is. .. This is a guy who usually only brags about his German cars... :p

Haven't really found the minors yet. ... Wish it has more trunk space or foldable back seat(s), but we already knew that b4 ordering. Still trying to get used to the steeling and .. the car! Compare to the M, .. M takes the bumps on the road a bit smoother? M takes off a little faster? (Or maybe it's a hybrid thing on Q? I'm not sure). But those r very minor and certainly just takes a little adjustment.

No lock ups, .. yet. ;)

Congrat on your new car. MB is such a beautiful color especially on the Q50.
If you like your Q50 acceleration quick all the time, just set it in sport drive mode. Standard mode is more for gas saving than performance. There is a slight delay in acceleration in Standard mode which I presume is to save gas.
It's even better to set in Personal mode where you set your steering preferences and transmission to sport. Make sure to select Personal drive mode if you are in the mood to drive aggressively because Standard mode always set as default every time you turn on the car.
There are other mode I disabled: Eco Pedal and Navi shift mode. I'm not sure if it effect acceleration or not, but I disable them anyway.

Thanks! I did set up the personal drive mode but kept forgetting to change from Standard when starting the car. :p

Funny that I was NEVER a driver who cares about .."performance" until this car! :D:D Actually since I tasted M, ... something has changed... and I"m afraid I won't change "back" ever again! ;)

Btw, Thanks for the great write up on hybrid! RIGHT ON!

btw, I think I have a name for my new toy, ...inspired by my friend this afternoon.

The lights are so much like a magnificent Hawk, and of course I am a SEAHAWKS fan! :)

So, "Q Hawk" it is! ... Doesn't sound so good for a girl's name... Oh well, until I find a better one...

GO HAWKS!! :D
