After much deliberation and comparison,
the Z offered much for a reasonable
deal...complete with fire under the
hood, sex appeal, and rarity.
Improvements can be made in the regions
of more low end torque, a less notchy
shifter, softer ride, and better
interior materials. The benefits
though are overwhelming...very stable
even at blinding accelleration,
stunning in appearance, taut, muscular,
beautiful exhaust note, quick

I purchased my Z new in March of 2003.
The dealership (Thopmson Nissan in
Doylestown, PA) is the best in terms of
service which is why I bought it

drive as I thought it would be. In

same opinion who have 2003 year models.
