Yep, we raced about 10 times, and every time I very slowly pulled on him.

The only time he beat me (insert disclaimer here) was when we started to race at 200km/h. We were even, then he started to pull at about 220, my car doesn't breath much past that. I can hit the rev limiter in 5th (241km/h@7000rpm), but those last 500rpm take a while.

Also, keep in mind my gearing is shorter then a 350z.

Im a proud owner of a BMW, however I do like the new 350z's a lot....if it has 4 seats I'd take it for sure. You should post a pic of it man. Personally I think you made a good choice.... (although i may have taken a new RX-8 over each of your choices if it was up to me to decide )

I wonder how much shit am i going to catch over those comments....

I've done the 0-60mph in 6 seconds flat with the 3.38 diff. My car hits the rev limiter right at 60mph (97.1km/h), so that 2nd shift is where that difference from 0-60mph and 0-100 come into play.

Also, this was done on the street. I'll get a better 0-60mile and 0-100km/h runs at the drag strip (on street tires)

All the numbers are taken from C&D, R&T, and MT. They are fairly reliable.
