need some advice / input

Post by that300zguy on Tue Sep 13, 2011 7:07 pm

I know ive ben saying i really want a 300zx tt but the ones ive found have already been modded or need alot of work. i wasnt set on a 300zx ive also looked at at getting a g35 240sx or 350z ive found more g35 - 350zs in good condition and low mileage and stock. i want a stock ride and do all the work myself.
I like the style and comfort and perfromance of the g35 i test drove a G35x and fell in love with it was a strong car and the comfort level was great and for a sedan it still had the sweet look.

the 350Z has the sleek look and plenty of power and perfromance and comfort level is still good and the 5at or 6mt tranny is good either way to me.

SO advise and input please

you can probably get a 350 for cheaper. ive seen a few around here go for $7000. or just a little more. but if you have the cash a g35 would be pretty sweet. but if i were geting into a nissan i would go with a 90's model 240 coup. cheap, easy to get parts for, and sexy...

Just a bit of advice. Look into tire replacement on an awd car. If you need one due to anail or something, you will have to buy all four of to much tread is gone. Just dealt with this on my girls suv. I'd aim for a non awd g35 sedan. If its a 350z, it has to be an 07 or 08.

If you go with the 07-08 you will have less and slightly more expensive aftermarket options but still a nicer body style in my opinion

i had a big turbo srt4 and it was very reliable, actually idk anyone that has problems with them that mantains them. The biggest problem about them is all the ricers that own them act like douches and gives them a bad name in the car community

the bad news of a srt4 is it is a neon. but they can be clean. one example is on this very board. Ive heard of issues of transmissions exploding. just research. any car can be great or bad depending on how you treat it.

But I'd drive a lance and an impreza. Id never drive a neon. Just the srt version. Doubt I'd own one anyways. But again. They seem to be nice cars. Just transmission issues at first.
