This is my last post here. You guys have been great. I just couldn't stand being smoked at every traffic light. I'm happy now. In my opinion, e90 is overpriced. Good luck and have fun. No nasty replies please. To each his own.

The car kicks a... It's worth buying it just for engine sound. It sounds even better than Z4. Interior is a tiny bit quality stepdown from e90, but has more storage space. Car handles just as good as e90. Xenons and 18's came standard. My payment went down. Oh, I forgot, I only have 2 seats and 2 doors now. Must have a second car along 350z.

I really like the 350Z in this black cherry cola color. Not sure the name of it. But I can't help but think the 335i sedan would have been a better choice for you. You get more speed than the 350Z, equal or better handling and only 1 car payment!

Not a flame, either, just an honest opinion.

how do you figure it has more storage space?


you've gotta drive the 2 seaters while you can, before you get too old or have too many kids or other people telling you that you can't


congrads on the car, it's probably way more fun to drive than a 325

Nah, handles much better than the e90. Zero roll, very sharp turn in. Different type of vehicle though. Bet your insurance went up a bit.

only downside to that car was the rattles and bathtub feel when you're in it.

I love the looks of them but they are just to SLOW for me. If you want any kind of power you have to go into the motor or it will POP with the basic Twin-Turbo kit.

It's sharp though and good luck with it!

tiny bit quality stepdown???? more like a whole class step down in my opinion. I'm not so sure i can agree with the statement that the z has more storage space.

If you have to get a 2nd car how is that cheaper in the grand scheme of things?

either way congrats -- nice car, different taste.

And most of the 350Z's have something on our wish list: LSD.

limited slip differential- puts the power to the wheel that has the grip. all 350z's except the base model had it.
