    i like how they threw in the old school look of the Zs, but I still don't like that it looks like a 350z too much, mostly because I don't like the 350zs look.

    I hate the exterior less than I used to, to be entirely honest. It looks like they atleast figured out how to make it look retro without cribbing directly.

    Interior is wtf though. I mean, sure, the S30 z cars have a threesome of dials on the console, but they aren't above the console like on that.

    Beyond that, I need to see one in person before I start hating or loving it.

    Do you realize that in the first sentence you said it was good they designed the car in a similar style without ripping off details from the original, and then in the second sentence you criticized them for not ripping off a detail from the original?

    I'm commenting on part of the car that they FAILED to draw from the original in a way that looked good.

    i do like it, they say the performance benchmark was the porsche boxter/cayman so we will see what it can do. i bet they catch a ton of flak for using the nav stuff out of the infiniti'

    Why? They're bringing something from a "premium brand" into a "lower brand"; I see nothing wrong with that. If it were the opposite case then I could see a problem.

    The point is to provide a part of the headlight that points to the side, so the side-reflector regulation can be satisfied without sticking a separate reflector somewhere else on the side of the car. Since Nissan has the whole tall/thin headlight thing going on right now, that's pretty much the only way to accomplish it.

    I agree they're not very appealing where they are.

    Took a belt sander to the rear and front lines as well, just so most people wouldnt accuse us of doing that.
