great car. I have got mine for more than 3 years. Only minor problems. there is something that the 03 models have and is the gas gauge. it does not read very accurate and sometimes might tell you that the tank is empty when you have at least 5 gall left. is a great car for the buck and performance wise if you want to improve the handling put wider rims and that would do the trick. the ride quality would be about the same, this is not a comfort ride at all, this is pure sports car. if you do not mind a harsh ride due to the low spring setting this is your car. Like I said is a porshe beater at least a boxter S can get smoked and it costs 25000.00 more so if you want an sports car RWD for less than 30K with lots of power go with this one. you wont be dissapointed. the cabin is roomy compared with the others in its class, only 2 seats but for a bachelors this is the car.
I did all the homework well before I decided to purchase a used 350z. I had made a list of all the things I would like for it to have and I waited 9 months before it became available. Honestly it was worth the wait. I am continully impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the machine.
I just recently took a 500 mile business trip thru Missouri and Kansas and really got to know this car. Wow it is a driving machine. I'm never waiting for a response from any thing I want to do, it quite simply is all the car I could ever want.
