Right, Mr. M from Melbourne?
Well actually you can since the turbo is built by the Japanese. They must be doing something right.

Oh yeah! The tire feathering I remeber that. Enjoy your car. I know I did. I had a Pikes Peak White Touring with ash interior. I greatly miss that car. I love our M3 and will definitely love our new 335 E90 coming in October, but the Z had a very special appeal to me. It was my first real sports car, my old crap stangs, and Comaros just didnt cut it. The ride is very bouncy unless you get the Nismo suspension. I just sold a set of Nismo brakes, damn I could of hooked you up. Dont let anyone give you any shit about your car, its a real head turner, and the styling is a little on the Porsche side, enjoy!

Oh yeah immediately go and get the Nismo exhaust! Awesome!!!

One question - what made you decide to get the Z over the G35 coupe ?

I was always under the impression that both cars handle the same, but the G35 was more luxurious and had better fit and finish. Does the Z handle better than the G35 coupe ?

350z's are beautiful cars. just don't think they'd handle like bmw obviously.

i'm glad you got the 350 and not the G35. I think the 350 looks a hell lot better.

Z's interior feels like that of a Honda Element. Cheap plastic.
It may have improved since the 2004 model, but I doubt it.

Should have gone for G35 coupe.

g35 is i think 150lbs more? i dont know the numbers... but its at least 100lbs more... when i drove my friend's g35, it felt pretty quick but heavy.i mean crap, getting out of the car itself was alot of work... those doors are heavy... 350z felt alot lighter and to me acceleration was a lil bit better.

but i'm not so much of a racer... so speed doesnt really concern me...

The new 335 will drag both the 350Z and G35 everywhere.....
