How do you like 350z?



Well I had a choice between 330ci and 350z I chose 350z. For couple of reasons It is faster, looks better, when you drive in one it feels like a real sports car, way better price. So what you guys think did I make a good choice or not? I have 2004 350z touring model. 6 speed the 350z is very fast 0 - 60 5.4 only M3 and M5 and M coupe can beat that.

g35 coupe is way better then the 350.
the 330 has a smaller motor and is not a sports car, it's a family coupe and therefore you can't really compare them. the 330 can also seat more then 2 people.
nissan needs to step up with their cars and stop using the same motor in every vehicle they make..my dad's altima uses the same 3.5 v6 but it has less hp.
if i were nissan, i would of designed a whole new performance motor just for the g35 and 350.

just wondering, doesn't the srt-4 keep up the m3? and if the m3 beats the 350z 0-60 shouldn't the srt-4 also?

To be honest it would be a tough one to decide.
I really like 350z in black and slammed, but ZHP looks hot too.
BMW is more luxurious, more convenient(rear seat)
Nissan cheaper, more sporty looking.

If 350z is black its definitly hard one, if anything else then black, id go for the bimmer

Also remember you are posting this on a BMW board! We are biased here!

Did you make a good choice? Well if you are happy about your decision then yes you made a good choice. Would I make the same choice???...No, but that doesn't matter in your case.

While I like the 350Z, and think they are very competively priced for a fun to drive sports car with a great motor, if I had the choice I would not even think twice...the 330Ci would be in my driveway. Who cares if the 350Z can go 0-60 in whatever. A car's 0-60 time is not the main concern when I buy a car. If we all had 0-60 as our #1 buying criteria, and price #2 then I guess we would be driving mustang V8's.

I love the way the 350z's look and sound.

I was playing around with one on the highway sunday night from Guelpf to Woodbridge on the 401/400. They're pretty quick, we raced a few times, and I barely pulled on him. They have a lot more top end then my car, then again I have pretty short gearing in comparison.
