    Thats nice.

    I'm thinking of keeping my car and getting an S6 as a second car to play in. Keep talking myself in and out of it though.

    I just drove a nissan murano which is the 4x4 with a 350z engine and that's making me want a 350z. It pulled like a train. Sounded awesome too.

    Ok i've been to a few nissan dealerships and it was very hard to be taken seriously (as a baby faced 22 year old). Fortunately my friend knew the manager at hilsea nissan. She found me a 350z and has arranged for me to take it for a spin after work tomorrow. Quite excited about it really. Will let you all know what i think.

    Hmm not a fan of beemers sorry dude lol.

    Just got back from my spin in the 350. First thing i noticed was the quality of the interior plastics which was no where near as good as the audi but i expected that. The driving postion was spot on, very comfortable. The engine was silky smooth and it was very quick. Nice close ratio 6 speed box and the exhaust note was amazing. I can definately see myself driving one. My car is now up for sale.....

    Ok ok i'll spill. I went for a 350z in the end. Picked up this one below...... 48000 miles full nissan service history, gt pack heated electric leather seats, bose 6 disc cd player + optional extra speaker pack, cruise control, climate control and ac, zenons, optional extra rays engineering wheels etc etc etc the list goes on. Cannot wait to pick it up now. Still got the A4 for now going to put it up for something silly in the hope of getting rid of it soon.

    Oh interiors a bit marmite but i think it goes really nicely with the exterior colour. Plus it matches the colour of the brake calipers.

    Yea it is tidy, the guy i bought it from likes his autoglym so its had the full treatment.

    It sounds pretty good standard but i think i'll be going for a nismo exhaust and jwt pop charger which should get it to the 300bhp mark. Won't really have the spare cash to mod it just yet though.

    Nice going, its a buyers market for big thirsty engined cars at the moment! Never really liked the rims Nissan came up with so i'd say save yourself a grand up & get them changed as your 1st mod.....................you know modding will commence at some point soon enough!!

    Yea i don't think i'll be able to hold it off for too long. I do like the rays wheels but i have seen some ultralite wheels that i think would suit it better. 8.5x18 front 9.5x18 rear. Gun metal with a slightly polished lip.

    If you're going to get an exhaust for it, you wont go far wrong if you get a NUR spec, i had one on my Supra, it sounded awesome.

    I was looking at some volk wheels and they cost a bomb. The blitz sounds good on the supra but i still think the nismo exhaust is the best sounding exhaust for the Z.

    Have you heard a blitz on a Z?

    They have a removable baffle. Try and get a decat pipe as well if you can.

    I'd give the 350Z a better chance than the S3 in a race to be honest!

    I think my mates S3 would completely kick my ass but i didn't buy it for out an out speed. His is running over 300bhp. Although his wheels are rubbing at the moment so i might be ok.

    I think i'm gonna have to find something really special for the wheels. Still looking for something with the wow factor.
