Negativity/hostility towards the Z

Recommended Posts

Can't really say i have had much negative stuff happen. But on occasion people do try to harass me into racing, to which i just go about my business as usual as i am not into that sort of thing really.  :hypocrite: :D as others have said i do get let out more and some people move out of the way to let me through, stuff like that.

people going at 60-65mph who speed up when you go to overtake. Had people go from 60 to 80 whilst trying to overtake before! Supercharger comes in handy here when I'm feeling mischievous, doesn't take long for them to disappear from view in the mirror :wave:

This is so annoying. I usually use cruise control on the motorway at around 65 and will stay in the first lane unless I need to overtake. When someone does this to me I'll pull back in behind them and wait until the slow down again and then back into the middle lane to overtake and repeat until they stop being an idiot.

 

I find this usually works pretty quickly as they get bored of this game especially if you choose not to engage in their stupidity.

For me coming from a BMW 3 series (E46 coupe) I've personally found people treat you much nicer with the 350z compared to the BMW!

 

The only exception is the odd boy racer in an audi s3 etc trying to race you but that would be any fast-ish car tbh.

 

On the flip side I've had positive reactions from some super car drivers (lambo's etc) due to the nice exhaust note of the 350z (mines has a cobra cat back exhaust).

The times I have had comments at work  with a hint of sinister undertones like 

"You must be doing alright to drive a posh car like that"

It's normally from non car people that don't realise it's a 14 yr old car worth less than the 2 yr old focus that they're driving.

Just jealousy and spite from bitter people unhappy with their own lives.

Often their faces change to a nod of impressed acceptance when I tell them it's an 05 car that's worth about £5k! :lol:

Never any issues with the Z.

 

Also have a Cayman S and constantly get completely unwarranted  grief and hostility in that, ... like I care :)

What sort of grief do you get?
