The first one ruined me.

91 - 300zx, 2+2, Auto, Pearl - First car ever..
03 - 350z, Touring, Manual, Silver
07 - 350z, Touring, Manual, Silver
18 - 370z, Sports Package, Manual, Pearl
08 - 350z, Touring, Manual, Silver

I've had multiple other vehicles between the years of owning these. Been apart of My350z for quite some time as well..

Hoping this is the primary new Z forum.

Glad to be apart of this with the rest.

2016 370Z Roadster
Hello all. I currently drive a 2016 370Z roadster, automatic. Before that it was the 2010 370Z roadster manual (which I miss a lot!) And finally a 2004 350Z Roadster auto. Most all other cars are Nissans, 2 Maximas, an Altima and Armada. lol

This time out i'm looking for a Z Nismo manual.

M240i
Hello from the San Francisco Bay Area. New to this forum and the Z platform. Extremely intrigued by everything I've read thus far and very attracted by the combo of specs and rumored pricing. Looking to potentially replace my 2017 M240i sometime next year with something fun, small, light(er), RWD, and with manual/dual clutch. 400hp and 3200lb have been the target numbers in my head.... not a lot of options out there..... 981/982 Cayman/Boxster GTS would be great but even CPOs are expensive. No Supra for me as I already have the B58 and ZF 8A in my current ride. Here to learn more.

What’s up everybody. I started off my car obsession journey with a Civic hatchback, then went through 3 different Infiniti G’s (with my g37 coupe being my favorite car I’ve owned). Bought an Audi RS4 after those, then made a weird transition into the Jeep world. I sold all of the Jeep stuff last year and bought a 2000 single cab 4 banger Tacoma with cash to save up for a Z33 build, but after all of the leaks, I’m dead set on the new Z.

Out of all the different cars I’ve owned, the Z community was by far my favorite. There will never be a comparison to Zdayz, so to say I’m excited to have another excuse to go would be an understatement. From my last Zdayz (before I stuck an inflatable palm tree through the sunroof and someone lit the straw hat I was wearing on fire):

Hi All,

I bought my first Z in 2012. It was a 2004 350z enthusiast model with a 6 speed manual and I owned this car for 4 years. Then in 2019 I bought a 2014 370z with sport pack with 7at. I only owned the car for one year and when covid hit I sold the car and made a nice profit. I also still own my '12 G37xS sedan which has been a great daily.

I'm looking forward to the new Z, but I don't like buying new cars because of 1st owner depreciation, so I may wait a year or two and pick up a used one.

My '04 350z

I never really considered an Infinity coupe before. I just checked them out and sure enough, way to pricey for me at 60k for a red sport. If you could get one of the regular Q60's in the low-to-mid 40's and could tune the engine up fairly easily and inexpensively to close to the RS levels, then I might have to look into it. I do love the interior, but the exterior is a little too conservative for my tastes and noticed the exterior colors are lacking in any I really like. Now if the Z is going to come with the red sport engine in a better looking, lighter car for under 50k (hopefully with little to no ADM) and they have a couple good colors I will like, then it may be worth it to wait. I'm sure there will be some aftermarket kits out there for the front bumper as that is the only area of the car I'm not sure about. But man, I'm itching for a new ride this summer as I am finally in a position to do it. I just have to put off the temptation to order a Challenger 1320 as interest rates are 0% for 72 months right now. I guess I could at least test drive a Supra to see what its like as I haven't even seen one in person yet. Plus it will be a lot closer to what a Z will be like than my current Mustang or the Challenger. I've already test driven a Scat Pack with the WB, 1320 and shaker packages to compare what I really want for a daily driver.

Hey gang gang, I’m IMPUL, I used to hang out in gtrCanada , jdmvip, import-era and a lurker on pretty much anything Nissan or JDM. I use pacific coast auto as my Japan exporter. And pretty much just want go inexpensive fun. Which is probably why I’ve spent the last 5 years on Micra-forum.com

Howdy. I've been lurking this forum for awhile. I used to have a '78 280Z that I had to sell when my wife at the time got knocked up. While i love my son dearly, I do miss that car!

I almost pulled the trigger on a 370 a couple years back, but I'm glad I waited. I cannot wait for the new Z! Thanks to all in this forum for the news and gossip.

My wife just got the new '21 Rogue. I'm quite impressed with it as well.

I feel so guilty...my husband let go of his classic Lotus Esprit when I got pregnant...and since then it’s been me following the sport car dream. A civic type R, followed by my Peugeot RCZ type R ( I think the only black one in WA) ...grew up on Nissan though with my dad starting on a Datsun 120Y and Skyline ...time to head back to my roots with the new Z, can’t wait

my roots are in the 1972 240z silver pearlescent with era correct bbs mesh rims. So… I went the JDM RHD skyline path. Now that’s there a twin turbo manual RWD “z” I’m sold.

Hi Crew , finally I am first at something being the newest member. last car was 2014 911 PDK and a 2016 GT4 , overpriced and couldn't drive them unless on a track . I owned tr6 and B and could drive the snot out of them on the street. 400 Z maybe might fill that need

Long time Z guy. Had a ‘94 slick top for a while after high school.
Tons of JDM and German cars since.
Just sold my NSX last week. Will plan to trade my Civic Type R for the new Z when it comes out (assuming it’s as engaging to drive as it should be, naturally.)
