Z Veteran (5/7)



  1. Congrats. I fulfilled mine with a 350Z too in 2015. Then the 370Z Nismo stamped it summer 2017.... "Wow" after dropping a gear on the way out of Birmingham....Enjoy (No regrets!).
  2. The 350Z are on way back up. A good example is rare. Should fetch gd money.
  3. 400Z was just a nickname by US enthusiasts.....I think Z will be end of life by 2030. I doubt theyll bother with a face lift. But the front bumper can be changed in the Japanese market....Also faces steep depreciation as Americans have clocked on they can get better for the money like a Corvette or M2 Many Z enthusiasts are keeping their current Z or buying competition. Some have already sold this new Z. Nissan will replace it with a faster electric roadster most likely under a different name possibly made here in UK by 2030. Theres no point using the Z name under EV.....a hybrid maybe...Depends on sales of upcoming 982 Boxster and MGC. If they're successful then theyll bring it forward. Apparently the weight is still an issue for Nissan. Theres a new market for EV roadsters just not at what they want to sell them for unfortunately.
  4. No Car :-(, Just a smart car lol.....be back stronger though. LOL...Reconsider Cotswolds for next season!
  5. Mount Haruna with the new Z. That would be good
  6. GTR Nismo and Note Nismo are still produced for Japan market and GTR nismo for US/Japan. Ive seen the GTR Nismo 3 times in the flesh in White and Satin Black. Might not be worth what theyre asking. It is what it is.
  7. No one moaned when M division, AMG/Brabus and RS put badges on A1, Smart cars, A3 and C classes as well X3. Calling their models S lines, M Sport, AMG line with a million trims. Seems to be an issue when Japanese automakers do the same. Toyota not so much....Why is that? Such bad cars theres hardly any Nismo GTR for sale...Only a few 370 Nismos on autotrader with not many SORN....The harshest critics have never driven any of the aforementioned Nismo cars. Yet seem to hate the most....
  8. Funny enough the new M2 is using a standard Torque Converter auto and is heavier than the Z but still very quick with power advantage. The 9 speed is not the best but its been tuned. It might be a better Nismo upgrade than the 370Z Nismo upgrade. Time will tell. It would be good to get both the Performance and Nismo versions and compare them on the track. Also the Nismo version can be tuned further by Z1 to get more power out of it as well improve the Auto. Confident that a stage 1 remap of say 475 -500hp, 400+ ft lbs and stickier tyres would be a problem for the M2 around the track being lighter by around 60kg. Despite the 370Z being a bulky dog it had no issue keeping up with its rivals driver dependant.
  9. Lol Some balance. Who knows maybe ill take a trip and test drive one. Either way theres not long left for these types of cars in Europe. So best to make the most of it.
  10. €85,000 Euros. Lol. Some have said M4 CS or Mustang for the money. Its nice itll be in Europe. Only a few millionaire kids will be able to afford it though.
  11. Looks like German Autohaus Dealer got hold of a Boulder Grey Z and was unveiled to their customers. Commenters are saying way to expensive even if they wanted to order one. First one in EU as far as social media is concerned.
  12. Are you sure you didn't write that review? Lol
  13. https://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/nissan-z-nismo/usa/2023 100KG heavier, $66,000, Auto only, Less sound insulation. More Tyre noise. But its a Nismo.
