Z Fanatic

Z Fanatic (4/7)



  1. Depends on what kind of driving style you have when encountering congestion. With London and the cities its a part of life. Bigger issue was the size/width (I had a Mk2 Nismo) for the roads in your area tbh
  2. That's a very good photo - angle, lighting etc Just unsure if I would be able to invest the time effort to keep it clean!
  3. Prefer the non GT spec tbh a lot cleaner. Think the brighter colours would suit it more too
  4. Better looking (subjective) - I prefer the rear lights on the new Z giving a stretched out look but it's lost the muscular wheel arches which is a shame. Nismo MK2 was the pinnacle of the 370z design I wasn't too impressed with my 370z Nismo brakes tbh so the new Z having worse ones is mind boggling Interior is p close too given those Nismo seats. Wheel design isn't much diff also.
  5. 370z Nismo seems a bit sharper on the corners. It looks a bit better from the side/front
  6. I feel you on that to a degree. Just if I were to get one then it would involve mostly London driving and from experience/observation brighter colours get you noticed more and so other road users (mopeds, cyclists, lorries, vans, taxis) have more time to anticipate you coming or even when you're parked up TTRS in Kalaymi green though has the sound track that the new Z doesnt Interesting to see what the next Mustang looks like - recent spy shots don't give you a sense of what it will look like Next Corvette Z06 in RHD wont have the central quad exhausts unfortunately in Europe due to Euro sound/pollution regulations. Massive shame even though it will be out of budget for me Corvette Z06 Models Outside US Won't Have Center-Exit Exhaust (motor1.com)
  7. Saw that video. I think he is dead on the money Aesthetically the yellow with black/gun metal wheels work well. Shame the bronze isnt offered nor a silver rim - would go with the Black and Blue exterior colours. I've gone full circle and I think its go yellow (w/ black interior) or go home with this new Z esp as it will be mid £50s by the time you import one. Thinking of blue or white might as well as get an F type. The average person wouldn't tell the difference. I've shown the Yellow to non Z ppl and they say it has a bit of Ferrari to it 🤪
  8. In the Nismo Ive had 2 passengers in as long as they're short. One in the passenger seat leant forward and one sitting behind (shoes off) on the shelf. It's actually do able
  9. I agree thats the downside of the higher spec trim level - the spoiler and mud flaps look tacked on and def going to get dust/dirt trapped inside also. The base econospec looks better but unless you like gun metal or black then will have to opt for 2 tone Yea the 370z Nismo is tempting for me too but I sold mine for £26k so will not be wanting to pay more than £20k. Ideally 1/2 owner. White, silver or red. Market still strong maybe 2024 it drops. I know the new Z wheels are the same size as the Nismo so potentially get a mid miler Nismo and swap the wheels if they are in terrible condition.
  10. If it meant settling for two tone then maybe best to get the premium trim (with the fancy interior, LDSm rays etc) but with the rear mud guards - they actually compliment the rear spoiler somewhat to make the rear end a bit more cohesive. Still prefer the simplicity of the base version tho
  11. I was going to do a post about this which echoes you're thoughts. (Unfortunately) the mono colours are that gun metal grey, black and burgundy (yuck lol) in the base trim with those five pointed star wheels not the Rays ones. I think the look completely changes just by having one bodycolour throughout. Also notice that the hatch rear glass does not have bottom section beneath it painted black like with the two tones. This car is becoming more of a what if tbh real shame
  12. I'm p sure the Japs are offerred a econo spec that's lower then the cheapest US spec. That's the one im referring to and is v cheap considering.
  13. Base cloth seats don't look too bad tbh and passable given the cost saving Aesthetically the rear spoiler/front chin spoiler delete looks cleaner imo This base spec has a different exhaust but tbh the high end trim isnt known for its sound note Think the only omission is the open diff instead of a LSD - but is it really going to negatively affect the driving dynamics esp for daily driving? I'm still confused as to whether this econo-spec is Jap only? That would be better for us intending to import
  14. Had a look into the Jap specs and tbh the very basic spec seems like the best deal 5,241,500 YEN / $40,890 Auto or Manual (Rev match tbc) Pretty much all the exterior colours to choose from Miss out on the suede seats but doesnt really matter esp if you're happy with black cloth (which pairs well with the brighter exterior colours) Better looking alloys (subjective I know) Day to day British cruising no need for the performance add ons, staggered set up. Together with the Auto I feel this would be the best daily driver spec esp in cities. more then enough performance for the price for most ppl Cleaner rear end without the spoiler (subjective again I know) Bose set up on this spec should be sufficient as well as the infotainment esp coming from a 370z Seems like this $40k spec is only for the Jap market not US - can anyone confirm?
