  1. Why did you get rid of your MK2 nismo? I agree re the Recaros. The leather does wear a bit but only a slight complaint. V comfy, sporty looking and make the interior look bigger.
  2. It's a bigger car - width and length wise. Only by an inch or so but its def visible. Also wider tyres ; 285 rear compared to 275 Post 2018 darker rear lights compared to Mk2 from 2015-2017. Its only noticeable when you see the cars in person or good quality photos Post 2018 Exedy clutch Visually Just a better looking car . Really the most complete looking iteration of the 370z. I think the pre-facelift "fanged" 370z in white looked great esp the convertibles. But the 370z Nismo Mk2 almost looks like a brand new model . A very dramatic facelift
  3. drive by wire Yes ive heard this happens at higher motorway speeds but in and around town it works to the car's benefit I think any serious buyer needs to test drive the Q50/60 3.0ts on the motorway for sure to decide whether its a dealbreaker or not
  4. 370z Nismo. Have never seen a q60 in the flesh but the q50s are nice having seen the basic trims/engines. Someone who has seen all told me the Nismo is the biggest head turner. That said I saw i30 fastback today first time and was pleasantly surprised. Looks q classy . Base model. Proportions just right for UK roads
  5. I can see insurance costs perhaps putting people off as well as the fuel costs. Though there is the 350hp hybrid Q50 - 3.0h i believe? These also can be had at a similar price. V few cars so a case of take what's on the market This is up there with the I30n fastback in terms of performance sub-15k mileage bargains out there atm
  6. I have a sneaking suspicion this might actually end up coming to market before the next Z and GTR cars.
  7. Worth mentioning also that they would be more practical then the more expensive Q60. Q50s aren't as large as well as having more space inside, extra doors etc These 3.0ts or "Redsports" as they call them in the US all come from the same factory line as the GTRs and Nismos from the factory in Tochigi Wondering how low these will go...
  8. Same engine as the Q60 3.0t , these are literally less than half price with around 10k on the clock Anyone brave enough to give this any consideration? I cant think of any car in the same price and sub 15k mileage range for the same money. As a comparison Newish Kia Stinger GTs are now at the £25k ish mark whilst A45s start from £27k at the lower mileage end
  9. What are the main reasons why you are looking to sell if you don't mind answering. Also have the same car btw
  10. Rather like this even though it will never be released. Looks great in dark silver https://www.motor1.com/news/364201/nissan-gt-r-370z-shooting-brake/

    New Z4

    Saw one the other month recently in Battersea, London. First impressions: its small! and NOT wide compared to the 370z Nismo I drive in white. The pain job is fantastic. styling hit and miss tbh but it looks good esp with the diamond cut alloys (which were moderately curbed already lol). not sure it will age well though. it looks great in a different way but not particular aesthetic nor sexy nor muscular (the side, front and back don't really match) . Best word I would use to describe styling would be sharp
  12. This. The interior has dramatically improved C7 to C8 though. Agree with absolutely everything here. Its a shame as the C6 Wide Body (grand sport, Z06 and ZR1) is one of my fav cars of all time. The C7 could have been good if they didn't faff around with rear as much. C6 Grandsport really hits the spot for me. unfortunately realistically the best way to get a good one would be import from US. just not financially viable. My hopes are now with the successor to the 370z
  13. I'd like to see a C8 stingray side to side with a C7 stingray in the same colour preferably white. I think the C7 looks better from the back by a mile with the centre exhausts , more prominent (less Camaro-esque lights). C8 looks better from the front although there is nothing, no one angle where the C8 design looks unique/revolutionary . Side looks a bit fussy and could do without that black plastic
  14. Initial thoughts on this? Its estimated to start from $60k which may translate as some speculate at circa £75k over here. Also confirmed in RHD I'm expecting the C7 prices to take a hit despite there being so few of them here. I saw the video with Jay Leno and he questioned whether the hatch was aluminium to which he was answered that it was in fact fibre glass - something that's apparent from the close up on the video Not sure on the looks . These taken outdoors in a more natural lighting give a better impression then the car show shots and the heavily edited promo stills
  15. Black does look good although I think its more suited to the GT car and convertible Someone mentioned above re the 370z replacement . I've heard people suggest the q60 engine being a viable powerplant but the latest I've read is that in order for that too work the 370z replacement would have to get bigger as the engine is too big too fit it currently. Its hard to imagine the car growing in size though I do like the idea of the q60 engine plus AWD in a larger Z car. Just have a feeling Nissan might not want to risk making it any larger. Anyone seen how big the new Supra is yet in the flesh. For a comparison heres the Nismo aside the outgoing 911. Its actually a bit bigger/longer (the Nismo that is... lol)
