Aren't you glad you leased, lead? You did lease, didn't you?

You are correct!

I wonder if they would swap my current lease out for a new one since it would be to their benefit in the long run? Anyone ever try this?

Don't forget you may have to return your car to it's original state (or close to it!). Include those costs. Plus, you don't want to give away all that stuff you just got, either.

Unless they increase engine power to overcome extra weight and increased drivetrain inefficiencies, it will be slower. Also, Audi is known for very good and efficient AWD, but it has very 'numb' steering compared to a good RWD car like the G35 and 330i. I'd hate to see the good G35 handling characteristics diminished.

The G35 AWD will be totally different than the Audi quattro system. The Audi is full time AWD, with 80% of torque going to the front tires and 20% to the rears. The torque is then redirected up to 100% to the non-slipping wheel(s). Therefore, the car normally feels more like a front wheel drive car, but without torque steer. The Infiniti system will start with 100% to the rears, until there is slippage, at which point the power will transfer to the other wheels. Since it normally is only driving the rears, you don't get additional friction loss. There will be a small weight penalty, but since it will be much more efficient at getting the power to the road, it may be as fast or fast than the non-AWD. Off cause it will be much quicker on any smooth, damp, or snowy surface.

The Audi info comes from Audi brochures and owner's manual (I've owned a A4 quarttro for 7 years). The Infiniti info comes from a series of threads and links on FreshAlloy.com (Infiniti forum).
