[SOLD]***SOLD*** 350z GT 2005 Azure Blue 49k miles


Recommended Posts

TLDR: 350z GT Azure Blue 49k miles £10500 (Tamworth, Staffordshire).


Can't quite believe I'm doing this, I honestly thought I'd be taking this car to the grave, and I may just regret it once it's gone but here it goes....


For sale is my beautiful Azure blue 2005 Nissan 350z with GT spec. Here's a photo I took of it today with 49097 miles on the clock:




Genuine reason for sale, I don't use it how I intended to. Since I purchased it back in 2016 it quickly became a bit of a garage queen, only coming out in the warmer seasons on a sunny day, therefore since ownership I've only done a mere 4000 miles in it! I did plan on using it for a regular commute to work etc but with a rubbish route and paranoia of car park dings I've only taken it a handful of times over the years, and now coupled with spending time with my two young kids I'm barely using it. I've therefore decided to move it to a new owner who I hope will look after it and enjoy it.


I don't like to heavily modify cars, rather just enhance the original awesome design, hopefully that's reflected in what you see in the photos. I do also have most of the original parts (not included in sale but available). Below is the list of modifications, history, and maintenance.



-          Nissan 350z 2005 3.5l 278BHP GT Spec in Azure Blue

-          49k miles

-          Full service history, Mot until April 2023

-          Falken FK 452 tyres with plenty of tread left

-          Tein-S springs

-          Clear front bumper reflectors

-          Genuine Nissan front facelift front headlight custom configured with halo and ironman mod controlled via Bluetooth. Internals professionally repainted and carbon dipped.

-          Clear rear fog light with LED bulb

Good points & maintenance:

-          Rust free & no accident damage.

-          Run on Shell V-Power. Starts on the button every time.

-          In my ownership at least it hasn’t seen the winter roads and rarely even rain.

-          Ice-cold air conditioning

-          CD009 gearbox

-          New original W-Brace and kidney brackets fitted

-          Diff bushes replaced with poly bushes

-          Fans replaced with new OEM

-          Boot struts replaced with new OEM

-          Some additional security which I will discuss with new owner

Bad points:

-          CD player sometimes jumps when cold

-          N/S front tyre sometimes looses a little pressure (not a puncture).



Here are some more photos:










And some from a photoshoot at Japfest (note the rear defuser in the photos is no longer fitted):
























Price wise I'm asking £10500 this is to include the personalised number plate. I'm not in a rush to sell it, I'd rather keep it than sell it cheap. Bit cliché but "first to see it will buy it", if you're after a very tidy 350z, well maintained & looked after, in Azure blue and you're happy with the price then you will buy it!


For any further info drop me a message. Car is located near Tamworth, Staffordshire. Tests drives will be done by me, unless you have proof of insurance & funds (and on a dry day of course ha!!). Thanks for looking, Iain.


Still procrastinating over hitting the 'Submit Topic' button :(

All the best with the sale. Can't however can believe it's for sale. Seen and poked around this car many many times over the years and it's always in top condition. Incredibly well looked after and cherished. One of the very best DE's around, no question.
