Fell in love with the Z's years ago. Finally made the big leap and am so happy with my decision. Started out looking at the coupes but after driving this grand touring roadster I was hooked.
This is a great car if you want to save some money, but still want the performance. If you want a quick car that produces over 300hp, then the Z is the route to go. Infiniti and Nissan are the same company, so you would be getting the same car if you get an Infiniti, just paying more for the badge. If you can get a top end Nissan for a base line Ininiti i would jump on it. You would be getting a nice sporty and luxury car. I have the Grand Touring model and I love it. A few upgrades I would do would be a new K&N drop in filter to improve air flow and a set of LED bulbs for the license plate lights. Cons: Interior door panels close to the handle is very very thin film cover and can be skinned off by an accidental swipe of a ring, fingernail, etc.; No Aux jack in older than 2007 models; road noise is noticeable, but my other car was a lot louder. So i guess i got use to it.; This is a sports car, so you feel EVERYTHING on the road.; If you are a large person or tall, you may find getting out and in difficult or tricky when someone parks too close.; MPG floats around 20-21mpg realistically. Pros: 300hp; Responsive steering and throttle; roomy trunk for a 2 seater; Looks great; wider tires in the rear are standard = improved grip = better handling; very quick car; great highway millage close to 24mpg; awesome bang for the buck
I always wanted a 350z ever since it came out in 2003. I got my 2007 black 350z about five months ago and its really a nice handling fast sport car. I did every comparason test with the Mazdaspeed3, the mustang GT, s2000 and its just way faster and a better car. If you want performance,handling and a head turner car buy a z.
