    Hello, I have been reading a lot about the G90 and today, we made the trip to Holland, MI to test drive a G90 V6 AWD. Our last five cars have been Infinitis (M35, FX50, and two QX 56s) and a Jaguar (XKR convertible). We were seriously impressed and ordered a G90 V8 AWD. Great test drive and we were astounded with all of the features and services included at a very solid price. There seems to be a lot to learn about this car. We should take delivery next week. Looking forward to learning more via this site and the experience of other owners.

    Anyone know if Genesis sells hats, polos, key chains and the like?

    Thanks!

    Congratulations on your new Genesis and welcome to the forum. Trust me, you're going to love it.

    I'm not aware of any Genesis branded merchandise, but would also be interested in something tasteful and upmarket like the car. I'm not a snob though. I have a whole closet of Jeep and Corvette t-shirts and hats. I just don't think that style of apparel would fit with the G90.

    Thanks much. I believe you are 100% correct on liking the car. We loved the test drive.

    I have some very tasteful Jag March and Mercedes and BMW make some nice polos, too. Obviously, Genesis gets to make the final decision on all merchandise.

    One question I should have asked earlier. On the "B" pillar, my daughter noticed a silver knob facing the rear seat on each side. We did not know what it is, but I thought it might be a hat holder. Any idea what it is?

    You're close. It's actually a place to hang your sport coat so it doesn't get wrinkled.

    Well, I am sorry to report that the dealer in Holland, MI has been unsuccessful (so far) in locating a Black with beige interior AWD Ultimate. Apparently, there is one in the Detroit area, but they have, so far, been unsuccessful in pulling it west. They are expanding their search. I have to say, that as a soon to be new owner, this is frustrating. I know, first world problems. Sounds like demand for the V8 AWD is exceeding supply. That sure seems to be a great problem for Genesis!

    I think it's more a supply issue as opposed to a demand issue. When I got mine a month ago, it was the only one in the Cincinnati area. All the others were the premium. To date, there have only been 2 other Ultimates shown in dealer inventory. And, if you follow the online tests, very few are for the Ultimate. I believe Genesis is really pushing the new V6 twin turbo.

    From the reviews, it sounds like the V6 is a really nice engine, but for an old hot rodder like myself, I'll always pick the V8.

    Hello I am new. I just signed up.

    The reason was Doktormoo's posting from 4:10 PM yesterday.
    I have the an identical G90 (same color choice, etc) on order here in California. And I am waiting already for 2 months. Not even the concierge service can tell you when a car like this will become available.

    Will wait, even if it takes 6 months, the benefit then will be to get a 2018.

    I forgot to mention, that I was told that only about 7% (plus, minus 1% ) of all cars are currently built as Htrac.
    And out of those most of them are 3.3's.
    So, we might get ready to wait for quit a while.

    I just used the inventory selector and drove to the dealership that had it. I did not feel like waiting around for the bait and switch stories from the local dealership. My purchase dealership is about 100 miles away. I am in the Northeast, but was ready to go wherever for the Ultimate after I started reading the reviews.

    Called an made an appointment. The best part was the long drive home in the new car. It was worth it.....the old break-in period kind of took a back seat though.
