Back after 4 years

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

4 years ago I sold my midnight blue 08 plate HR 350z. After I owned some german cars but now I decided to again get another Zed. Picked her up from Scotland last week, and it's a storm white 19 plate nismo. Had to convert to a manual again lol as got lazy driving an automatic but totally worth it. Love the car, missed the power and its roughness :)

Already looking for upgrading the exhaust and if I did the homework right the 370z TORQEN Short Tails - RESONATED should do the job fine. 

 

Looking forwards to attend some of the meetings soon

 

Thanks
Damian

 

Here are some pictures of her :D

Welcome. Looks silver in the 3 pics. What brought you back from ze Germans. I went from an E46 M3 to a 370z . I do miss the M3's engine, it was glorious especially with the csl airbox. The 370 engine feels more muscular but just doesn't really seem to have a sweet spot where as the M3 flew after 5500rpm all the way to 8000rpm.

I've also had a Z4M/E92 M3 and their engines are as smooth as silk right up to the redline. Whereas I do love my 370Z for sure but the engine feels pretty rough after about 6000rpm and it goes against the fact that max power is at 7000rpm so really you should be revving it right out to 7500rpm.

 

The VQ engine does feel far more muscular lower down the revs than the S54/S65 engines I agree. :thumbs:

I'd love a z4m coupe but here in OZ they're do damn expensive.

Yes and they are a lovely looking thing for sure. :thumbs:

 

Sadly mine was the Roadster though so it looked pony in comparison to the Coupe. I haven't learnt my lesson either...because I went for the Roadster as well with my 370Z!! :doh::D

Yeah it does a bit lol, too much filter.

 

None of those cars had a big engine so that's why I got another Zed :)

Z4 not a fan but M3 yesss I'd love to get one, only if it wasn't so expensive. 

I love my 370z, it's a great car plus you don't see a lot of them on the roads.

That is one of the big things I love about the 370Z. :thumbs: I saw a Nismo for the first time the other day and I got all excited and I said to my Mrs look a 370Z Nismo!! 

 

She thinks I'm daft with my love for them! I've got the bug for sure. :D
