In love with Z - for performance & looks
By NY sportsdriver on
2005 Nissan 350Z Touring 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
Couldn't be happier with my Z - has testosterone and class, with better performance & lower price than BMW Z3, Audi TT or Porsche Boxter. Acceleration & handling are excellent, and especially smooth at 80 - 100 mph. Leather interior & Bose soundsystem are sophisticated & sporty. Could use better use of glove box & trunk space, but you don't buy these for carrying capacity. Great low-end torque blows by Mustangs & Kompressors alike. Coupe quieter than convertable - for performance lovers....
Acceleration, handling & smooth ride at 80-100 mph or 50 on mountain turns, sound system and leather interior for 25-50 yrs who are making it - cooless quotient beats down kid cars like Eclipses and tricked out civics or camaros. 18" rims are great addon, and digital tire pressure reading is great.
Needs better use of trunk space - rear wheel stabilizer bar is obtrusive. Glove boxes behind seats not a convenient design, but overall industrial look (door handles, stick, etc0 makes up for it. Little jerky in first gear, but that's just the price of power.
