Having owned 3 Nissan 300zx (including a twin Turbo) and a late model 350z I would say I was an avid enthusiast of Nissan sports cars.
Owning a "Z" is a thrill, not only from the sheer driving excitement of 287+ horse power under your foot but from the looks of the crowd as they here the soft grunt of the exhaust note as your drive by (its almost like they knew its a "Z" coming and they had to stop and look)
The "Z" is Nissan's flagship sports car and for almost 25 years the value for money is undeniable. 3.0ltr and the 3.5 ltr engines are strong reliable and smooth. I never had a engine problem with any of my Z's (including the twin Turbo) even after 100,000 miles.
The ride is typical of a sports car, not designed for a 3000 mile treck across the country but with great bucket seats that wrap around you the 350z is as comfortable as the next car.
The 350z interior hasn't changes in style just quality. All guages and buttons are within easy reach and with onboard computers that measure everthing from tire pressure to fuel consumption, engraved aluminium kick plates at the door it screams welcome aboard!
Safety seems to be a key selling point for Nissan these days and with 4 airbags in the 350z (incase you get airborn) traction control (that can be turned off for doing dougnuts) your in good hands.
Coming from a 300hp twin turbo to a 287 hp naturally aspirated engine was a disapointment (not hearing that turbo wind up) until I drove it on the highway, it seems faster, tighter more responsive throughout all the gears.
For the price you get great looks and strong perfomance. BUY ONE and grab a little "Z" history.

This is my second Z, and I love it as much as the first. I'm definitely a Z lover. Thank you Nissan.
