Just purchased this vehicle after several test drives. The audio is fantastic--best stock system I've heard. The AWD platform lacks some of the RWD jazz the G37x does, but you'll appreciate that FWD bias in the winter. Also, the Super-Handling is otherworldly. Just try to cause understeer--you can't do it. It out-cornered every other car I drove. I test drove all its competitors, and none of them achieve the balance of value, performance, comfort, features, and reliability that this car does. The torque hits max at c.5k RPM, so this is more of a highway driver than a drag racer. However, in sport mode, you can row the 5AT yourself, and see how fast you hit the power band
Car is prettier in person. SH-AWD, ELS audio, torquey at higher revs. Bluetooth works well with my iPhone, great Nav system.
There really are a LOT of buttons on the dash. Not intimidating to me, very intimidating to my wife, which might be a good thing. Rear passenger room not as big as it looks. A LOT of junk in the trunk, stylistically speaking.
