looks great with the spoiler. nice that it drew a crowd. total oppisite for me...

funny story: after purchasing my first mkiv supra, i took it to the local toyota dealership to get it checked out.

i pull in and a salesman comes over...

him: hey, cool car 😀
me: thanks man 😁
him: i bet its fast 😄
me: yeah it is 😎
him: who makes it? 🤔
me: uh...uh... 😢

Picked up my Seiran Blue Sport (AT) in Georgia & just got it back home to South Florida yesterday. I was coming from a 2014 370Z base and, like everyone else, was waiting and hoping for a trim and color that I liked at a reasonable price. Happened to search inventory on Nissan's site and saw this one scheduled for delivery in about 3 weeks time and the rest is history.

SELLING MY 370Z
  • Sold to Carvana for a little over 19K (bought it for $24K 5 years ago). Best offer of all the quotes I got.
  • Came and picked it up for $75 fee.
  • No real inspection and didn't test drive it
  • What was quoted online is what I was paid
BUYING PROCESS
  • Seems like the South has some of the better deals? I paid 5K over MSRP which was better than anything else I found.
  • Grainger Nissan in Savannah were awesome. Super communicative during the whole process and always available for questions.
  • Interest rate was over 6% and I have outstanding credit. Was not thrilled about that all.
  • Drove it back over 2 days with a stop in between.
  • Accessories were: brushed metallic illuminated kick plates, cargo net, emergency road-side kit, 2 sets of 1st aid kits, & floor mats
THOUGHTS ON DRIVING & HANDLING COMPARED TO 370Z
  • It feels bigger and heavier but more solid and modern
  • Love having blind spot monitoring
  • My 370 felt very sharp when turning and response was instant. The new Z is not the same in that respect although I plan on adding tires and sway bars so we'll see what happens there.
  • Love the throaty drone from the exhaust. I know a lot of reviewers were not pleased but I think it sounds great. I hear the autos have a different exhaust than the manuals so maybe that's why
FUTURE PLANS
  • Speakers for the front doors (already ordered)
  • Sway bars
  • OEM front and rear spoiler
  • Wheels and brakes. I want to see what the pricing will be for the Nismo offerings on these. Everything else I'll get sometime this year

Congratulations I hope you enjoy this car much as I do.

Be careful... a lot of bad drivers out there :mad: Was hit while leaving my parking garage. The other driver was found to be at fault. Just dropped the Z off at the auto body shop to start the repair process. Haven't even had this car for 6 months...

Luckily, it's a replaceable front fender.
The left rear quarter has been run into twice on my Q60. Both times the damage was not bad enough to justify cutting out the quarter, so now my car has Bondo on it.
