Nothig but a good time so far. Still turns heads and averages 24 MPG. The Z eats tires though so be prepared to change out every other year. The grip on turns is ferocious, this is where I usually pass everyone up. Hard to question the bang for the buck quotient with the Z. Especially the roadster. Are there cars with better interiors and stereos...sure, but for under 40K this one is hard to beat.
Strong V6, great gas mileage. Eye candy galore. Firm seats, with nice features. (Leather power seats, mirrors, seat warmers, electrochromatic rearview mirror, HID headlights, plus it's wide and roomier than most.
In a perfect world I could be surrounded in Connally leather, have a Mark Levinson stereo and 500 ponies for under 40K. The Z has none of these but is so fun to drive that you forget you don't have them. I would suggest to Nissan that they should at least OFFER more stuff, let the buyer decide.
