My wife has a 2015 Q60 Coupe. We love it! She was interested in the new ones. We'll see. Here it is in front of mine, before I lowered mine.

I had the 3.7 Q50S before this one. The 3.0 Twin Turbo is a beast compared to 3.7. I was surprised how much difference 70hp made. I love it.

I'm sure it is. That Q is a fun car to drive. Mine has a bit more power (twin turbo 3.5 rated around 350) but it's a big pig. The idea of a 400 hp Q60 is very appealing.

I miss my 2004 WRX just about every day. Sold it in 2009 with 2 spun rod bearings. :(

Go for it! It's fun, fast, practical, economical, and hopefully in the long run, reliable haha

With the FA20DIT motor, gas mileage is pretty decent. I average about 24 MPGS with my all local (city) commute but the best I have gotten on road trips is around 33. People who mod complain about rev hang and notchy shifter but it's something you get used to if you adjust your driving skill, and it's really not that bad. I heard good things about the CVT but I would still recommend getting the 6 Speed Manual to get the most out of it. Suspension is sporty but is not as stiff as it would be in the STI.

If you just want a fun daily driver that can handle everyday life that can do the occasional spirited drive/canyon carve, I would say this is it, but you have to look at it as a Corolla/Civic/Elantra/​Sentra type car that has AWD and tons of HP and Torque.

If you want something more luxurious like this and you're ok with an auto, I would say the most comparable car would be a Lexus IS350 AWD, but that's a lot higher than the 30K price range.

Overall, the only gripe I have with the car is the audio system. I got the Premium (mid-level), and I regret not going for the Harmon Kardon upgrade. I did the Subaru 6 Speaker Kicker Upgrade and it improved it decently, but it's still not as good as any of the systems in our Toyota's, Honda's or Hyundai's.

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ (upscale Fusion) can be had with a 400hp 3.0 TT with AWD. Could be a fun little ride. ;) I have a 2012 MKS with the 3.5 TT and it's only 350hp in a bigger, heavier car and I can pull 0-60 in 5.2 stock.

I guess I don't see how one could even drive a car set up like this. The tires don't fit the wheels which, I would think, would make any sort of handling a fond memory. Plus, it seems, the wheels would be contacting the fenders and quarters. Not to mention the camber is just.....comical.

It doesn't take anything to drive my car as it is on air suspension and i simply push a button and can achieve and ride height i want. Not to mention it's nearly 500whp i moves faster than most cars and does a damn good job at it!

A pic from a friend from the same day

as stated above, it is on air suspension. I can set my ride height to whatever i want. If i am driving my normal routes, i can be nice and low, If i am somewhere i don't know, i raise it a bit to be safe.
