Wanted to introduce myself....

First time Infiniti Owner, but no stranger to Cars and especially car forum life.

Just got a Graphite/Graphite Q50S AWD Deluxe Touring. Beautiful car, only had it for 2 days, and already despise the Run Flats, that I didnt even know the car had.

I kind of made a quick decision... Dealership offered me an incredible buy out on my Audi, and a super sweet 24/month lease. I can't retain cars for more than 18-24 months, and this is my first lease....



I will take better pictures with my DSLR later on, but I'm sure we all know what the car looks like...

I used to be heavily into modifying my cars. Some of them were internet sensations a few years ago... Kind of grew out of the phase with the Audi A6. It was perfect from the factory, and needed no modifications.

2012 Audi A6 3.0T Prestige



2010 Acura TL 3.7L SH-AWD



2009 Acura TL 3.7L SH-AWD


2008 Acura TL 3.5L Type S



2006 Acura TL 3.2L


And a few others, nothing special...

I have not seen one picture of a graphite that does the car justice. The metallic paint is gorgeous, and it just doesn't show up except in person.

Welcome and nice color. Infiniti has improved paint quality, IMO that Q50 paint is finish and quality is one of the best for Infiniti.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your Q50! :D

It doesnt do it justice imo as well but at least you see the flakes of the paint!

The A6 3.0 is a bit more expensive and competes a bit more directly to the M37/Q70 in terms of weight and rides heavier and softer than the Q50. In a straight line the power is comparable to the Q50 Hybrid.

Here's the official thread:

with that being said I can't wait for the Q90, it's one highly anticipated vehicle, don't know how much longer till the redesigned model drops but all I know is that I want to see it!

Sigh.... there are a few big differences between the cars... Yes, the A6 (the way I built mine) was $63k. Bad @$$ car!!

The Audi was faster, heavier, softer and better on MPGs... I financed the A6.. 60 months/$0 down... it was costing me $1100 a month!! At first, it was worth it.. but after 18 months, I couldnt bear to pay that anymore....

Infiniti has better techy gadgets... (although they are quirky), better seats, better sounding engine..

The biggest heartbreak for me trading in the A6, was losing the LED headlights... They were super aggressive, sexy and very noticeable... but I am rather impressed with the Q50S headlights

Jeez, but didn't you know what you were getting into?
I did... and at the time, I was also getting car reimbursement from my company.

The $1100 a month seemed like no big deal for a brand new Audi... but after 18 months, it got old quickly.... and to think i had 42 months left... blah

I see you got nyc plates what dealer did you go to?

Infiniti of Manhasset.... Great deal, great staff... A little persistent, but when you keep lowering the price, its hard to say no!

Just wish they didnt put that dumb sticker on the car. I had asked them not to, but i think it was already on..... I hate dealer plates/stickers on my trunk.. even if its a lease

Got mine from there also. Their service department is great. Sales staff are very friendly.
I requested on mine to have no stickers or front plate installed so I could use my hideaway plate holder instead. Didn't want holes in my bumper.
