Hello! The time has finally arrived for me to trade in my 2004 FX35 (original owner- yeah, I’m a “seasoned” mature driver), on a new vehicle. The 2019 Q60 Red Sport 400 was my initial choice... but my finances, and the financial incentives on a new 2018 Q60 Sport made it just too good to pass by.

So about the car... it’s an AWD 3.0, Iridium Blue, graphite leather/carbon fiber, sensory package, ProAssist package. I would have liked intelligent cruise control (it was on my FX), but with the way they bundle the packages, that would include some other options that I don’t really want/need.

It was difficult to say goodbye to my faithful FX after 15 years, but it was time for a change. I’m loving the Q60S so far... amazing power (with only 300 hp ;)), great handling, although I’m not sold on the Dunlop run flats it came with.(really... no spare, no jack?) Overall I’m really excited about this beautiful car, and am looking forward to learning more about it from the knowledgeable folks on this forum!

Regards,

Ron

Congrats and welcome to the forum! Post up pics when you get the chance. :)

Plenty of us have switched away from the factory runflats because of how bad they were. The 2 most common brands folks switch to are Continental DWS or Michaelin A/S3+ (I have these) although there are a few folks with other brands. I don't think anyone who has switched has said they regretted the switch.

Thanks all for the welcome, and advice on tire upgrades! I've got the 2018 silver "S" AWD sport model, which came with the 19" Dunlop run-flats. Looking for spare tire and jack first. Then some upgrades as finances allow. Here's a split photo of the FX35 on delivery day back in 2004 and the Q60S on delivery day, 2019. Same driveway, new car!

They equipped them with runflats, so they eliminated the spare tire.
