Who has a Infiniti Q60, Q50 (V37)?

Recommended Posts

I don't see much talk if any about them on here.

I know they are really popular in the States so they have more people talking on forums there but i was hoping a few crew on SAU have one or are keen to get one.

 Well if you come across this thread and have a V37 post a pic and say hi 😁

They look menacingly stunning but I'm not keen on their overly complex coolant plumbing for the turbos.

Just the unfortunate reality of making a turbo engine with truly modern power delivery. The W2A charge cooler adds a second coolant loop and makes things very messy in the vicinity of the intake manifold. A2A eliminates the extra plumbing and issues with coolant leaking into the engine but now you have a bunch of additional volume after the compressor that has to be pressurized to build boost.

You're right. It is an exercise in compromise. I much prefer the lesser complexity in going air-to-air and the amount of people who've reported on their coolant system spewing forth their contents after a hose failure is well-known.

It's the only reason why I would avoid buying one, despite how pornographic they are to my eye and have me lusting after one!

They used to be on TV here in NZ last season.

I'm not sure what engine they ran but I think they used the Merc engine which could of been the 2LTR Turbo.

(Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Yep 2L engine (road car) that's from Mercedes-Benz. No idea on the TCR cars, I assume same engine as the A-class
