Welcome! Firstly, congratulations on joining the forum. This is a friendly place and lots of people here to help you with any advice etc you may need.

 

Its a buyers market atm so my advice would be to take your time, shop around, look at a few cars and dont let your heart rule your head. Familiarise yourself with the various models, options etc, costs, problems etc. Oh, and check the insurance before you buy! :thumbs:

350Z Buying guides:

 

https://www.350z-uk.com/topic/56870-guide-for-new-memberspotential-buyers/

https://www.pistonheads.com/news/general/nissan-350z-ph-buying-guide/32601

A few dates worth noting:

2002 Fairlady Z (350Z) goes on sale in Japan

2003 Official UK sales start.  All European cars get a revised chassis setup done here in the UK (Cranfield) which was later adopted worldwide

2005 GT4 special editions with 'Rev up' engine (up from 276hp to 296hp)

2005 March Roadster (cabriolet) introduced

2006 March 23rd All cars registered from this date onwards pay the higher rate of annual road tax (£570 vs £330-ish)

2006 April? Facelift, all cars get Rev Up engine https://uk.nissannews.com/en-GB/releases/release-12709-350z-the-power-broker

2007 May 350Z refreshed with updated HR engine making 308hp (313PS), a bulging bonnet to accommodate it, and different colours ( https://www.350z-uk.com/topic/124638-2007-onwards-hr-engine-and-speccolour-changes-nissan-gb/ )

 

Obviously prices are higher for the later cars, but all 350Zs are fairly cheap for what they are IMO, given the power and reliability.

 

My impression is that the 350Z is really very reliable and there is little major that usually goes wrong with them.  In many ways it's the 'standard' stuff that applies to any car to check - I ended up putting new tyres and brake discs/pads on my car straight after buying it.  Now obviously that applies to any car, but for a performance car like this they're not cheap, ended up spending almost another grand just on those.  So something to watch if you're on a tight budget.

 

If you let us know what your budget is and whether you want a Coupe or Roadster, then we may be able to give more specific advice on the kinds of cars you'll be looking at.
