If you replacing your 350z, what would you get next?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering really... I’m a former 350z owner (2004).

 

what would you buy next in the same vain as a 2 seater sports coupe? And if not a coupe what else?


Needless to say, better oem performance, let’s says budget is 10-20k - yes I know that’s a huge range but just want to see what people see as a decent upgrade from a 350z.

If you prefer to stay with Nissan then the natural progression appears to be 350 - 370 - GTR R-35 but you may have to expand the range North for the latter.

I didn't really get on with my Z4M Roadster(didn't like the ride/suspension/gearbox), but the Z4M Coupe could be an option. Good looks and quicker than the 350Z.

A lot North :lol: like 3 times. Or am I exaggerating :lol:

 

 

Nah! you can get an early 09 plate for 35k, so perhaps double: :lol:

 

By the time that you progress from 350 to 370 they will be even cheaper.:thumbs:

So basically just stick with the 350Z :)

Wise words! :thumbs:

3. Merc 

4. Aston

5. Jag

 

Or you could go for one of these :)

I'm not selling or buying but I'd go to a Cayman S for that rough price range.

Depends what you want it for?

Interesting options... yeh not sure 911 is in budget unless you went for a 996 egg variety.

 

rs3 back to 350z... would never have thought that’d happen

I have been thinking of maybe a V8 M3 next as I have the urge for a V8...

Be very careful with that engine.

The bearings suck !!!

I had one(manual) as a daily back in 2013 and it started to feel pretty ordinary pretty quickly for me. The interior is standard 3 series apart from the seats/speedo. The range is poor and it only really feels quick at 6000rpm and above. A Jack of all trades and a master of none Imo. 

 

I'd consider one as a second car now though, and they are becoming reasonable value now too.

I agree about wanting a V8 just not an M3 common as muck around here all driven by angry looking blokes with shaved heads :shrug:

That's the problem with the 350z, to move away you need to spend at least twice as much to go little bit faster, to handle a little bit better, ending up something not a rare, all for the pleasure of larger service bills and will it sound as good as the VQ?....... :shrug:

 

I think a clean tidy 350z still looks good on the road as there's only one newer model after it, unlike the M3, Boxster or Cayman.

Lol I'm 21 with a very full set of hair and have just bought a V8 M3 :lol:

 

Worth it for the noise it makes... Certainly a step up from a 350z, but then again it's twice the value :shrug:

 

Can see myself back in a 350z when I need the spare ££££ for sure :lol:

A full head of hair doesn't get you off the hook do you wear sunglasses when driving in the dark ? like the other angry baldy M3 drivers :lol:
