I'm definitely going electric next Rivian and Tesla are the ones I'm eyeing right now. Maybe something else will be available when my Q blows up.
Honestly I'm not sure how good a performer the QF is, they have cheat tires equipped with 80 tread-wear for all of the testing.No, not really (quadrifoglio)....but it being an awesome performer has led some to excuse its reliability penalty.
Uh, pretty sure I just spent a week and over a thousand miles in a C63. And pretty sure it handled better than any car I've personally driven, and that includes every model and generation of Infiniti sedan and coupe from the original G35 to the present Q50/60 sports.The Mercedes C63 is a terrible handling car when even getting close to the limits. And as someone stated if youre looking for reliability rule out MB, BMW and Audi. Owning an Audi without a full warranty is financial suicide.
It almost hurts to even think about it but the new Alfa Giulia is getting really good reviews for handling, reliability etc.
The C63 is the best handling car youve ever driven? oh my god, you need to drive more cars! The 2019+ C63's have come a long way with their shocks, ABS and suspension programming, so they do deserve the credit. But getting a good lap time is still pretty difficult vs the competition. Weight is a big factor, its 4000 lbs. Ouch. And Im definitely not saying it is more reliable or handles better than the infiniti. The Q is almost as heavy with far less power. Anyway... get the C63 near the limit and bad things happen. Plus with the auto tranny, rolling on the power mid drift is difficult to keep smooth and hold the line.Uh, pretty sure I just spent a week and over a thousand miles in a C63.

All three Germans are more reliable than Infiniti now. It's full-180 from 10 years ago. Renault-Nissan has shat the bed, and the Germans have continuously improved from their horrible performance in the 00s decade. They deserve props. Infinit's issues with the VR from exploding serpentine belts to blown turbos are inexcusable and reminiscent of BMW's old N54 nighmare with the E90/92 335i. Even BMWs don't blow turbos and cooling systems at 50k miles anymore. :laugh:
Guys, I am curious on peoples opinions of the A5 and 4 series Gran Coupe (or maybe even a 445ix). I am already thinking down the line and want a car that isn't as "common".I am in this same boat now. Looking to see what is next. Have about a month to make a decision on what i want to do.
Cars i like:
4 Series Gran Coupe
Well neither the A5 or 4-series are any more exotic by comparison, if anything they are more common in most cities unless your getting RS editions.Guys, I am curious on peoples opinions of the A5 and 4 series Gran Coupe (or maybe even a 445ix).

Although I love my Q50 and have a trim/package that is far less seen than the standard base Q50s I see, I feel like I am seeing way too many Q50s in general. Now I want to upgrade to something more eye turning and seen less often on my next lease without sacrificing power/speed. Reliability isn't as much of an issue as I only lease new cars.
Reading the forums people are happy with going 1000 miles with no issues. You'll see responses in reliability Quad threads that say, "Driven 500 miles so far so good this car is a rock!". It's pretty laughable because they are dead serious.No, not really (quadrifoglio)....but it being an awesome performer has led some to excuse its reliability penalty.
My bmw has been the most reliable car I've owned actually, and was my first choice before getting the Q50.Might that rule out BMW and Mercedes?
^^^^Probably a BMW M2/M4 or maybe a M240i (B58)
Depends which Bimmer you drive in the BMW line up, 2-series is much funner than the Q50/60. So long as you can get around the lower qualitySorry but Bimmers do nothing for me and, IMPO, they are WAY overrated.
I have a loaded 2019 RAM Limited Crew Cab 4X4...bought it in mid-Feb and LOVE IT! Amazing vehicle and Ford and GM can't even come close!There is some really nice stuff coming out. Would be a tossup between a GT350, 340i/M3, and a new Ram 1500-those trucks are gorgeous.
