Did everyone see this recent review in C&D? Probably won't boost sales! I still love my Q!
Same regurgitated crap from wannabe reviews since the DAS was first released with the Q50. I certainly have my complaints with DAS, but they are minimal--it is a fine system, especially (!!!!) for your average driver on their commute. Heck, even on a twisty circuit, the DAS did just fine for me; some of the lost sensations is a disappointment, but for cruising on a commute, it is ideal.- Wat, you do a review without driving the vehicle LOL?
- They crap on the drive by wire but didn't drive a Q60 without that option?
It all depends on how crazy you want to go.What options have y'all seen to reduce some weight without having to take out the back seats and functionality? I've heard lighter wheels, smaller mufflers and some carbon but anyone heard of anything else?
The aftermarket currently offers a CF Hood, CF Front Fenders, and CF Trunk Lid.Change out the seats for lightweight racing ones, change out the glass for lexan/plexi, etc. etc.
I didn't really know what all else was available, just was typing out ways to lose weight off the top of my head.The aftermarket currently offers a CF Hood, CF Front Fenders, and CF Trunk Lid.
As for lightweight wheels, despite opting for heavier 20" wheels, I still went from 63 lbs <iirc> for the stock Red Sport 19" wheels & Dunlop RFs to 49 lbs for 20" Vorsteiner FFs & Michelin PS4s, which I am using as my summer wheel set. For fall/winter, I swapped out Michelin A/S 3+'s for the Dunlop RFs..
Yes, the Z1 Motorsports 2-piece rotors save 10 lbs/corner on the front, and 5 lbs/corner on the rear. I had them installed for awhile on my Q before I went to my current Stoptech BBK.I forgot to mention that you could also go with lighter brakes as well to further reduce rotating mass. I forget the numbers, but the 2 piece rotor sets available save a decent amount of weight as well.
The flush dash is something I actually really like. I hate the current trend of screens just sticking out of the dash. It looks tacky and unfinished to me. It reminds me of when aftermarket head units would pop out like that. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. This trend can't die soon enough in my opinion.Because they are flush with the dash instead of looking like some geek bolted his laptop on top of the dash like BMWs, Mercedes, et al? I don't get it.
