Another good 370Z review: Leftlanenews.

http://www.leftlanenews.com/nissan-370z-review.html

"Why you would buy it:
You think buying a hot personal sports car with great handling and power shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Why you wouldn’t:
You are still holding out for your 1979 Trans Am."

"The new Z looks like one of the prettiest Vegas showgirl who was born with natural beauty - not in need of “enhancements,” if you know what we mean."

"Credit for this goes to the wide track of the rear that features a nice blend from the fenders to the rear fascia. In other words, the new 370Z has a nice ass."

From most angles it looks nothing like it's big brother, but side on you can clearly see the similarity in the front window/ roof profile.

that headlight and tail-light still kinda weird even though i've seen a million pix already. who knows, maybe it will look better in person :/

overall, nice car.. im sure it's a huge improvement over the 350Z inside and out, but somehow i still prefer the 350Z profile.. just looked more fit or right?? i dont no..something looks a bit weird about this 370Z in certain angles.

I meant good review in the sense that they liked the new 370Z . The actual write-up indeed could have been better.

I like the new Z. Saw it in person a couple of weeks ago. The rear looks super wide with the bulging fenders, and the rear quarter window and beltline look 1970 240Z again. The only bad thing I've read is that the engine vibrates at high RPM with the manual trans.

Headlight and tails are nasty... other than that it looks like the old Z. It will be a Z-Fan pleaser though...

Nice review. I must admit the new Z looks better than the last one and the interior looks sick.

I just love the rear fender flare. Just wish they would stop pussy-footing around and stick the GTR engine in it. The GTR is an ugly monster.
