poor man's GT-R

2009 Nissan 370Z 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


We got the Sports package with the upgraded wheels, brakes, suspension, etc. The ride is firm but not overly stiff, even with the 19's. Yellow paint has every head turning. The front plastic spoiler gets scraped on every 4" driveway. The blind spots are significant but that's why they give you 3 mirrors. I've had a C5 'Vette with the Z51 suspension, the Z rides no worse, and it probably won't leak in the rain. The MPG is mid 20's but the car is still new, hopefully better with time. I love the look, handling, ride and Nissan parts availability and reliability. The difference between a GT-R and a 370Z is not so much performance but cost of parts when tires, brakes, etc. are replaced

Best Features

Yellow Z with 19" wheels and tinted windows. It could be used in a video.... handles like it's on rails, light weight, big tires, firm suspension. After celebrating birthdays on the dealer's showroom for 6 months it was ours for invoice to make room for the 2010's. Timing is everything in life.

Worst Features

a better front lip spoiler that won't hang-up on every 4" surface road flaw and driveway entrance. Mileage could be better but I didn't buy it for mpg. Other than that it's a great sports car.
