and my Q40x sedan with just a Visconti Ecutek tune, rips it from dead stop up to 70MPH.

The only advantage for manual like the mustang GT is above 60MPG or hwy speed.
I find the manual, no matter how quick you shift, youreally lose momentum. The only reason it was not obvious on youtube video 1/4 run how slow these new GT is , is bec. it is against another manual tranny.

I did not believe this at first, until I test drove a 2016 Mastang GT manual tranny with 3.75 axle ratio. The GT passed the G37 @ 19 secs mark which is beyond 1/4 mile. So if you primary drive in the street auto is the way to go...BTW! I never use my D mode on my Q40. My daily drive is M mode and my off the line pull is in DS mode with less than 3 secs brake torque.


lmao driving a manual is not jus about speed its about experience. obviously u like the experience of the manual thats why u daily ur auto like its a manual?....kinda gay imo

lol. driving an auto in manual mode is the lamest / most boring thing to do. I would rather just stick it on D and drive.

Same with paddles. My previous Q50 had paddles. I played with it for 1 week and got bored of it. And just left it on D and drove for the 2 years.

That's why I picked up a Manual G37. Much more fun to drive. But again, everyone is different.

If you want an auto, You got it. But if I want a manual, my options are limited.

Have you driven in manual mode with the S model? Whole different ballgame. Mine holds the gear until I intervene. Way different than the standard model.

I just got a trade in quote for my 2015 Q60s Limited - boy oh boy does that suck: $26k. Also 6MT, 20k miles. I think I'll chalk this one up to luxury depreciation and stay away from new cars for a while.

Not sure where you guys are getting these near 20k quotes for 2013's.

I was offered $16,000 for my 13 sedan that has 15,000 miles on it. I told them to pound sand. They then came up to $17,500. This was at a Mercedes dealership. Where I needed to buy a cargo van. (metris). I ended up keeping my G and still bought the van at a different dealership for $1700 less. There was no way i'm letting my car go for that cheap.

I believe you can negotiate the capitalized cost of the lease, which changes the residual. High residual, high buy price. Unfortunately this is negotiated when you sign lease terms, not at the end of the lease.

Got back from the dealership. Nothing could be done. The only thing they could help out with was the interest rates if I decide to buy and finance the car though Infiniti.

I'm not really ready to buy a new car since Infiniti has nothing new to offer. So I called Infiniti and requested a lease extension.

I wanted 1 year but the rep said she could only offer 3 months.

I tried again a few minutes ago and this time, the rep said he could do 6 months.

So I will have the 2015 Q60 til March 2018. I can always turn it in early if something nice pops up.

Still paying $360 a month for the lease. And I can write half of that off. So win/win.

That's an insane bargain. I bought (outright, lease is not my thing) my 2015 Q60 (2014 delivered) in November of 2015 for about $16k off list (approximately $1,000 per month depreciation) and the depreciation since has still been SIGNIFICANTLY more than $360 per month. I should have leased it would appear.

You'd be better off to return the car, figure out where it goes (either ask the dealer, or just search the VIN regularly) and buy it from them, it'd be much cheaper I expect.

Yes, I thought about it, but it will go to an auction and who knows where the car ends up.

Only reason I leased is because of the tax credit. After writing off half the payments for 2 years and a half, I can buy it and pay "less" overall when all said and done.

Most online adverts include a VIN number, particularly from a dealer, which is likely to be the outcome of a car sold at a trade auction. It would be taking a bit of a chance, but if you're up for it, I would just keep searching the VIN to see where it ends up and buy it from them. It's unlikely to go out of country, so it's all manageable.
