Feel free to explain why you chose the particular model

I have the Q50s with deluxe/touring/nav/spare tire pachages

I picked sport model because I like the ride/handling/looks as well as the larger brakes (for my crazy driving habits)
I picked the gas model and deluxe package because I need the trunk space / pass through (to fit the gun)
Spare tire package because I may eventually put other tires on, though the run flats are not as bad as I thought they would be

Q50S Gasser - Picked it because I loved the look of the sport model, wanted all the options and didn't really consider the Hybrid until after getting mine. If I had a chance to choose again, I might have gotten the Hybrid.

Got the Q50S

-I didn't need AWD since I live in Arizona
-Now that I work from home I barely drive and the fact that I'm leasing, there just wasn't enough cost/benefit justification for the Hybrid
-I also really wanted the larger wheels, paddles, sport brakes, front bumper, and the sport seats of the Sport model

I'm predicting that the hybrid sport is the most famous one on this board.

I have the hybrid premium with every option.
I wanted the hybrid sport but the dealer was making a bug fuss about it so I went to a different dealer amd got the premium for way cheaper.

I was expecting to see more Q50s Hybrid AWD models than what's listed below. Hopefully when i come back to this months from now the amount of Q50s Hybrid AWD model's will be much higher when compared to the others.

The poll is only a few hours old. :p I'm surprised we've gotten almost 25 votes already.

It'll definitely get more filled up in a few days.

Picked Q50 Premium AWD Model to handle northeast storms in the Winter.

Have the winter tires on it already, and I think my real world mpg is suffering at around 17-18 city (due to the increased traction of winter tires I suppose).

Starting to wonder how much better the hybrid would have been mpg-wise.

I went with the Hybrid Premium AWD.

--AWD because I live in the northeast.
--Hybrid for the improved gas mileage and resulting cost savings (I'm anticipating saving about $50/month over the gasser). So, even though the lease was about $30 more per month, I should see a net savings. The fact that the hybrid has 360hp and came with leather seats was a bonus (I really do like that extra power and those leather seats!).

Q50S, Hybrid AWD

I picked the best Q50 available because I'm worth it.;)

I test drove several combinations, but settled on this combo:

Sport - because the non-sport leans too much, has way much more nicer excellentier seats, has much bigger brakes & tires (for safety, of course).

Hybrid - because it has mucho more power, and better mileage. It's like having your cake and eating it. Do I worry about battery replacement costs? Nope, because they'll come down, just like the Prius' has.

AWD - because the nearest non-AWD was too far away. Didn't really want it. Already have an RX350. But, it still might come in handy if caught in foul weather.

Navigation - helps to know where one is going, besides getting there quickly.

No Duoluxe Trechnophobia Package
- don't need no stinkin' babysitters!

2014 Q50H Premium AWD

Hybrid - for improved gas millage, power steering column, steer by wire and the most important, power!

AWD - I live in NJ, sometimes winters are really harsh, not like the last two. But I had a rear wheel drive Lexus before and it was a disaster.

Navigation- even though every phone out there has google maps now, it is just so inconvenient to keep looking on the phone screen to see when u need to make a turn, or if u are on the phone at the same time and your reception is not up to speed with ur car.

No Deluxe technology - $5000 for maple wood accent and memory seats, seriously???? Coz all the other features are more of the gimmick then actually something that is necessary.

No Sport - different residual value, 2% less in my case, thats's $50 a month more without the actual markup for the sport (rather pricing difference); price per tire is $392 to replace; harder ride although seats and front end are very attractive. I tried to keep the cost of the car on the budget side, so I guess this would be my strongest justification of not getting most of the pricy packages.

I chose Q50 hybrid sport AWD with Nav and delux tech package an all available bells and whistle because
A. Hybrid - power and good mpg
B. sport - used to driving sport in all Infinitis we/ I had & have
C. AWD - Infiniti AWD is intelligent AWD and not all the time
D. Nav & deluxe pkg - used to Infinitis for long time and makes a lot fun car than without these packages.
E. Options: factory installed options have same factory warranty 4 yrs/60k miles
Cost is not a problem as I pay less than the VPP price and why not get all if price is less than VPP price.
I like driving fully loaded Infiniti.

I am the only one who voted for the base AWD model. This was due to the 24 month lease deal available in Oct. Had I waited till Nov and used the $3250 loyalty incentive, I would have definitely stepped up to the Premium AWD or maybe even the Q50S.

And yes, AWD due to geographic location (MI). It's near impossible to find a RWD on dealer lots.
