Huh?

As an owner of an Infiniti Q50s and a C7Z I'd say this is an extreme exaggeration. The Infinti has more room, is much more comfortable, and has a great ride.

It was like driving a dump truck. No offense to your preferred car. It wouldn't hold al line if it was drawn.

quick question have you driven a 2019 ZR1???

Your claim is ridiculous, it would be like a Q50 owner claiming his car is faster than a ZR1. I'm not saying anything negative about the ZR1 which is a fantastic car. Best of luck with it.

bullshit. I have a q50s 400 and a z06 and the Q50s has a great motor with actually better throttle response than my Z06. The Z06 throttle response is linear but the Q50S (especially with the jb tuning) throws you back in the seat. I used the Diablo to improve the throttle response in my 2016 z51 and am considering doing the same in my Z06. only thing I don't like about it

OP, will you still post the video of the downshifts in manual mode? Would love to hear how they improved the transmission over the Z06! Cheers and enjoy the beautiful ride!

Good luck and Enjoy today because tomorrow is not guaranteed!
-Very encouraging to hear, thanks!

And a humorously appropriate comparison as I rented a Q50 (not my first choice) last year. While many aspects of the car are ok I thought the steering feel and on-center stability were total crap. And the ride quality was too firm while also not being dynamic. It wasn't terrible, but it was terrible for a luxury car - certainly compared to my 2-gen-older BMWs.

Thanks for sharing your awesome new ride. Are those OEM floor mats, Weather Tech, or something else?

thanks for the kind words. Weather tech all the way here. They really keep all the dirt and debris off the carpet. Great for everyday use.
