    Just curious, if you were to get one right now, which would you choose- G35 coupe, or Z coupe? Why?

    If you're asking about the Z model...let's just say 'Touring'.

    I think both are great, but there's something I love about a white Z with tinted windows...:cool:

    When i bought my Z i drove the 350z and G35 and the G35 was a far nicer car in terms of look and peformance.

    So you bought the Z just because of the price?

    Hate the way the Z looks, love the way the G35 coupe looks. It's wierd, because the bodies are similar, but there's just something about the Z I hate.

    I bought my Z over the g35 because i liked how its more of a sports car, the g is definetly more classier and luxurious but the z is more for the track.

    A big reason i picked the G is because it had back seats.

    350z. Ive been in the back of the G35, im 5'10 160 pounds, and it was cramped as hell. I get out the car with sore legs and my head kept rubbing the top of the rear window. Id rather have a Z, faster, sexier, pure sports car.

    i had a 350z track and with that said, i my vote is for the S2000. The z had nothing but problems when I had it, don't know about the newer ones though. But if its between the 2, i say g35 for a daily because its nicer.

    Youve must have had an 03. In the 2005 all the problems were mostly fixed. But in the 06, a new front suspsension (no feathering) better tires, bi-xenons, led tails, new colors, 300hp 7k redline. etc etc, its beautiful now.

    Well, you cant say that for sure. The 2005 6MT with >>> Sort Tuned Package <<< will come with sweet 19s. If not Premium package, you probably wouldnt even have 18s. It varies thru dealer to dealer though.

    Get the Z unless you NEED the backseats.

    either way, you cant loose. I look @ the G35C and I always say "That is a sexy car."

    But the Z is pure sports car .... that's why I got mine. And that's what I loved about it. An abundance of power for the price. The only reason to get a G over the Z is a need for back seats.

    stock vs stock i'll take the G35,

    but with some big wheels and different front bumper, i think the 350Z can look slick as hell.....rear end looks way better than the G35s, IMO

    plus the chassis stiffness and weight make the Z a much better driver's car ..... but i think it looks pretty weak in stock form
