2008 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
I've had my 2008 Enthusiast Z for a couple of weeks now. So far, I love it! Can't say much about reliability yet, of course, but everything else is good. PROS: F-U-N! It is a blast to drive this car. The engine sounds great, too. You get a 300hp, road-hugging sports car for $30k. Best deal out there. And it turns heads. :-) Plenty of headroom (and I'm 6'4") CONS: Clutch is WAY too long. There's, like, 4-6 inches of play before it engages. You can hear every speck of dirt hit the rear wheel wells. Kinda annoying. Wheel doesn't telescope, which would've made a HUGE difference in leg room for me. Stereo's kinda lame. The fun of driving this car easily makes up for any minor nits! Recommend!
Engine, engine, engine. The exterior design and the kickin' wheels are nice too. Great job on the wheels, Nissan!
Upgrade the stereo or make it easier for the buyer to upgrade. Put some sound dampening on the rear wheel wells. Make the steering wheel telescope! Add keyless entry/start, where you never have to take it out of your pocket.
