I turned 40 in 2009 and decided to give up riding sport bikes and buy something safer. The 370Z was the perfect choice for me. Purchased a base 6 speed w/ the sport package. I have driven it in the mountains of NC and was able to attack curves w/ the same speed as I was able to on the bike. I look forward to every drive. Yes, the 050 Bridgestones can be loud on bad pavement, but that is what Dynamat is for. Easy fix. Don't let tire noise keep you from enjoying this little gem. The best value in sports cars period.
Handling, power (flat torque curve w/ potent top end), styling (exterior and interior) and value
NVH-the engine can be a little raucous near red-line, would prefer a factory installed and warranted oil cooler- temps can range from 195 to 240 degrees on average, 230 degrees @ 80mph in 100 degree heat (interstate) and 240 degrees in the mountains going uphill, tougher paint (chips easily)
This is for nuts4nissan09 or anyone with
experience with Dynamat to cut down on 370Z road noise: Where all did you install it & roughly what did it cost you? And does it look presentable when all is said & done?
