I've seen a few around here and there. I'm wondering which Houstonians are on here or who I may have seen. It's funny because I do a double take. I'm like, "Whoa, what's that car," for a split second before I'm like, "Whoa, that's my car!" Those angry, get out of my way, left-lane poker, headlights are still unique for now. Other manufactures are so going to copy the angry eye look at some point. Grrr.

Don't have a Q, but I'm in Houston. ;P

I have def started to see more Q's driving around though. Saw one the other night on the opposite side of Hwy 6 and the lights captured me. Just like you said, I didn't immediately recognize it as a Q50 but something just caught my eye and then I was like "ITS A Q50!!"

Also last night on 59 & W. Airport before I exited I saw some unique tail lights and told myself, "I bet that was a Q50!" and sure enough it was and it exited also so I got a chance to look at it pretty good. It definitely looks good on the road and the thing is the last few I have seen were Premiums with the 17s and they STILL look good!

Seeing others on the road has so helped me be satisfied with my purchase. Obviously I can't watch myself drive, unless I'm next to a reflective building, but yea, I seriously don't notice them initially as Q50s. I just react to seeing the LEDs and the shape of the car, look in its direction, and after a half second or so realize it's a Q50. They really made a good looking car. I hope people are doing the same double takes when they see me.

They are going to keep popping up more and more in large metropolitan areas. You can't sell 5,000 of these a month and expect that they aren't seen. I'm lucky enough to be in Infiniti's largest market (same for the Nissan brand). Some days I see more Infiniti Ms than I do 5-series, even though the 5 outsells it about 10 to 1.:eek:

I have the same car as you except it's not a hybrid...fully loaded, though. I'm in the Cypress area. I finally saw a white one the other day.
I've seen a few around now, but today saw my first Q50S Hybrid other than myself. That was kind of fun.

I'm in northeastern NJ, about 5 miles from Manhattan and the Chris Christie... er, I mean George Washington Bridge.:D:eek:

Nissan/Infiniti does very well in this metropolitan area (including Connecticut), and I believe that the press release for one of their recent redesigns (the last G or M maybe or the new Altima?) mentioned the NY metro as their top sales market. Not far behind were the usual suspects: LA, DC, south FL, etc.

Yes it has!



It's really not much of a "scandal", mean-spirited as it may have been. But knowing traffic in this region, it sure seems worse than it is.:D It can take 2 hours to cross that stupid bridge without someone closing lanes in a political pissing contest.:eek: My wonderful old 1995 Maxima must have spent about 1% of its long 10-year life with my family crossing those god-forsaken Hudson River bridges/tunnels. I used to go to a school in downtown Brooklyn and my sister (a theater major at the time) had voice lessons on the upper west side. I don't take the G35 into NYC, though my dad used to when it was his.

Bah, all these politicians have some degree of dirt and scandalous behavior going on. I laugh at the media hyperbole when one gets caught. Throw them all out every 2/4 years and start over again- it's all we can do.:p
