2005 Nissan 350Z Coupe Anniversary Edition 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Just purchased, so unable to give reliability review. Luv look, handles like slot racer, good power, interior i appeal sparse. Would like tach on top like other 3 gauges.
Looks, power, handlng
Add tach to top gauges. Add more satin chrome finish to interior. Standard nice black license plate frames to compliment rest of vehicle. Had a hard time to match frame and bolts to fit front and back plates. Nice to have some kind of optional sunroof from Nissan not aftermarket.
2005 Nissan 350Z Coupe Performance 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
I love it. It's a GREAT car, mixing the drivability and fun of American 'muscle' and the weight and handling of more hardcore sports cars. Finding a line somewhere between the portly Mustang GT and the more-purist Honda S2000, the 350Z is a classic example of excellent lines, medium displacement (3.5L V6=more torque than typical pocket rockets) and acceptable (3200lb) curb weight. No one who drives the Z will be disappointed with the performance so long as they keep in mind the price and 'goal' market. Particularly, the 350Z beats everything in close competition (3L+ V6), the new Eclipse (less hp, less mpg), the Crossfire (less hp, worse handling), and the R32 (looks, probably mpg, too).
Multifunction display works well for speedometer feature, as center-mounted tach doesn't allow for ease of use on primary speedo. Short-throw, close- gated 6-sp is pure joy.
More hp, or better gearing. Should have included storage bin behind driver's seat similar to one behind passenger's seat.
This has to be the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Sure, its small and other cars are a little faster but the combination of Japanese quality and unique styling make a true winner.
Narly exhaust note, lots of torque, looks great, decent gas mileage, comfortable, handles like on rails, lots of upgrades available, no reliability problems (awesome after owning 6 different Mustangs).
