    350z

    what are peoples thoughts
    just brought a flat with the misses
    she hates her car and wants a new one
    im bored with fwd
    so seems ideal to get a nice upgrade
    obivously i will be test driving a few before i actually get one
    are there any things to look out for
    common faults
    any spec worth paying the extra for
    reliability issues
    servicing
    and obviously tuning options ????
    thanks
    rich

    I love them.

    Get a UK spec one as there are loads of imports about - which don't have Brembo's as standard, they were an optional extra iirc.

    Tuning is limited I think on standard ECU, need a new one (standalone) to get power gains. Induction kits, exhausts etc make no power difference as ECU limits it.

    Sweet cars mate prob one of my favourites actually. I'm also hoping to have one for my next car as well. Used to drive them when I worked at Wilsons car sales - real good fun to drive.

    Mods wise?

    Only one option really if your serious about it....

    watch out for any gearbox issues/funny noises
    my freind had one and it proved unreliable, but that might be due to the fact it was a 'toy' lol
    get a black 350, get the rays alloys and paint them black, with the 313bhp powerplant and stick the £400 nismo induction kit on it! sounds awesome
    dont expect good mpg tho, even wen driven economically the 313bhp will only manage about 18 tops!
