love forum bias!

no car can escape it, any car no matter how much faster/better/more refined always turns into a crappy car on another forum

I agree with you. You just can't avoid these kind of discussions no matter what. I definitely liked the guy that called non-M 3 series cars "gay"...Where did that come from?

The 350Z is an ugly, overweight, aging, dog with fleas. And that comes from a Z lover who's owned a 240, 280, & 300ZX over the years. The current car is an embarrassment, other than MAYBE the motor.

Are those things still wearing out tires like no tomorrow, or did Nissan finally get out of its state of denial and fix the problem?

He may have something there. I've noticed my car spontaneously revving and when I'm next to another gay car I never noticed this behavior with my M. Could my 335i be gay? If so, I'll accept it. I hope it dosen't think I'm trying to change it when I get XEDE. I love my gay car!

i actually like the look of the z, i like the e92s look just as much if not more though, and it does weigh a lot for its lack of refinment


i just dont see how they can knock the 335 when it has the 350z beat on everything except price and for some people looks

Both cars are nice. But to the guy that posted in the 350z forums.... why do you need to feel justification for buying a 335?... esp from others, if you like the car thats all that matters.

Wow, I'm glad the Infiniti forums aren't full of premature tards like the Z forums. I guess that's their target market?

that is something i noticed, its true that the type of car you drive tells a lot about you though, the zs more sporty like vs the infiniti which is a bit more refined, the z drivers even knock on the g35s

yea, 350Z are mostly targeted to middle class teenagers.....their parents aren't that wealthy to afford something better, and they're stuck with the Z

i'm not saying it's bad, but OVBIOUSLY not as good as a 335i, so they try to do anything to protect what they have and have all the respect they can get.....

I would love it if I had a $30,000 car like the 350z back in high school...or any car as a matter of fact.

To some parents, they can afford it, but they just don't see the need for it. If they buy their son a 335i as a first car...what would they get the son for the 2nd car? Obviously he won't want to downgrade and get anything cheaper than the $50,000 mark.

if their parents can afford it, they won't even care if there's a need for it or not....and if they can afford it, obviously they won't downgrade to a cheaper car, assuming they don't lose their job the next day and go broke.....

when i say they can afford, i mean they can REALLY afford to buy a car for their kids to fuck around with....

apparently, i know this parent, she bought her son a LOADED X3....just when you think his 2nd car would be something worst, she bought him a ferrari F430 when he got his N....while she drives a 997 turbo

really depends how we see the word "afford"

Yeah. most of the subaru forums i visit are very friendly when it comes to talking about other cars. Even though teh evo is its arch nemesis, they respect the car for being great in its own way which is kinda the same way. It's just that the choice they made is the one they like so they're going to stick by it

i think its a matter of how secure the car owners are as a whole, evos and subarus know that even though their cars are butt ugly that they throw down a retarded amount of power, i think the 350z guys just know they fail

Well that's one's own opinion but the retarded amount of power isn't every single one of their owners. Those cars have an amazing amount of grip within their AWD system. You can't really judge the entire 350Z forum along that one thread either. If you keep reading, some of their more renowned members actually praised him on getting a great car, but told him that it would be wise to post the news elsewhere because the majority of the community there would be comprised of 350Z owners and enthusiasts. After you got your E90/E92, I'm sure you thought that was one of the greatest things ever too, as did those 350Z owners. It's not like the 350Z is a bad car either. So I don't like the design of the thing very much but as a machine, it is surely fun to drive.
