I so have enjoyed driving this car. It's great for Sunday afternoon spins. It's fast enough but quick in the turns. At this point I have only replaced the #4 injector. I have thought about trading for muscle but can't bring myself to letting go. For the money, it's the best car I've ever owned.
My Z was in nearly mint condition when I bought it in early 2001. Now at 136k miles, it can still consistently run the 1320 in 14.7 sec. Major mods: K&N intake, JWT ECU, headers, exhaust, lightened flywheel, clutch, lightened crank pulley, SS brake lines/syn. fluid. I have yet to experience any ill-effects as a result of these mods or my daily heavy-footed driving. I get an avg. combined city/hwy mileage of 22+ mpg. The driver's seat lower left side bolster is worn through to sharp metal. This is a std. flaw for this car. All of my pants belts have scratch marks on them in the same place. Ordinary drivers (80% bad) will annoy you. People will want to race you. Cops will suspect you.
Improve stopping distances. Lighten the Zs weight. Improve transmission (gearbox was redesigned in 1997, one year AFTER the end of US sales). Lower maintenance cost (oil, tires, filters, transmission(s), shocks, wheel bearings, bushings, repair of body damage, brakes, clutch). Security. Cupholder.
I bought my 94'300ZX N/A 04/15/05 for $9300 with 45,326 miles on it. I love this car! Sporty, classy, and a true performer, its going to be my long term project car as I (stealthily) add to the already amazing design. Handling is outstanding especially when you upgrade to stickier summer tires on larger rims. Performance is respectable enough to embarrass those A4 and BMW 3-series drivers and with some relatively minor (and optional - I just really like going fast...) enhancements, can be a truly devastating competitor. Its not the scary beast that the TT version is, but a damn fine piece of engineering nonetheless. Nissan was way ahead of the curve on this Fair Lady.
The look of the car... its going 80mph standing still and looking sveldt and classy doing it. The interior is comfortable and classy, and believe it or not, the t-tops don't leak! The engine sound is music, and the driveability of the car is flawless.
The sporty look of the car demands more performance. Intake, exhaust, ECU reflash, bigger injectors, a hotter electronic ignition system and some nice sticky tires (I went with 235/45/R17 Fusion ZR1's) will round out this stylish monster nicely. Oh, junk the Bose cass system & add a cup holder!
I've been looking for a 300Z for many
years, but it had to be the right one.
Recently I found it - one owner, low
miles, never seen winter and No
MODIFICATIONS. It had the original
titanium key, books, t-top covers.
It's been everything I had hopde for.
Gerat performance, fun to drive and a
real quality built vehicle. I didn't
opt for the twin turbo - too much
hassle. And it was a bargain at just
i just bought myself a 1994 300zx n/a,
and man what a beautiful car! for
being 10 years old youd have thought
its design just rolled off the boards
at nissan. they were far ahead of
their time. fun as hell to drive, and
built very solid. when you drive it
you can feel somethign special about
it. turns heads and smokes civics!
strong build, feels like a real mans
car. fast and fun. looks hot even 10
needs better gas milage!!! im paying
2.15 here in az and it sucks for a 17
