Of course, I had to see the dealer today to find out what's going on. The sales manager said that my car had an ETA of Aug 2, but that obviously hadn't happened. He thought the car might still be around Memphis, and that the update could happen there. If not, then it should be in early next week. The update is being FedExed and the Infiniti rep will be here on Monday to check things out. He has only four cars on the lot, including a red, non-hybrid sport, a black hybrid Premium, and a graphite hybrid sport. I didn't have much time to do anything there, but I did drive the hybrid premium about a half mile on side streets. The standard steering was way too light for my taste, but it did stiffen up when he changed the setting. I'm hoping that it is even heavier in the AWD model. On the short drive, in standard setting, starting out normally allowed the electric motor to move the car. When I pushed harder on the accelerator, the gas engine immediately kicked in - and the only way I knew that was by watching the tach; there is absolutely no sensation that something changed. As soon as I took my foot off the pedal, the engine kicked off, again without any sensation of change. I hope I get used to that; otherwise, it will be like a game to see how long I can drive without the engine. I know I'll take grief for this, but again I've got to say it: Technology is supposed to make things easier. I put the audio on(radio), and it took much longer to tune another station than with the system in my G. Yes, I'm sure I'll get used to it, but that still doesn't change the fact that what are supposed to be simple things are being made too complicated. I checked the tires out. Yes, they are Dunlops on the 19" rims, with a 260 wear rating. The 17" rims have the Potenza tires, with a wear rating of 400, which is not great, but at least that's better than the Dunlops. I also checked out the trunks. The non-hybrid had the spare tire under the trunk floor, which made the trunk a little shallower. The trunk in the hybrid is serviceable, and can hold a large suitcase and other things that would surround it. I picked up the trunk mat, and underneath is a molded "shelf" that holds two tools, one to undo the lug nuts, and the other to be used to help tow the car. There are partitions in that "shelf" that could hold small items, or, if you removed the thing, it would give you a couple more inches of space. As far as the two port options I ordered are concerned(splash guards, and the cargo package), they aren't coming with the car, but the dealership has ordered them. I'll just pay for them up front, and have them installed when they arrive, hopefully, before the end of the year.
