    I like them but must agree that the G35 coupe is much better looking.

    Can't see shit out the back. Sure that may not matter to some people, but if you spend over $30k on a vehicle I think you'd at least like to be able to see around you for some added safety.

    I like 350z's, The problem I have with them, From a performance aspect, Is the cost of horsepower. Greddy's turbo kit is 6500 dollars and it only produces 350HP..And Stillens supercharger kit is 5500 and it only produces 380..And while those are respectable numbers..If you put 6500 into a Supra you could have 500+ horsepower..And If you spent 1000 more (7500) you could have over 700. And the Supra is cheaper than the 350z. So until prices of turbo kits come down, Or until the numbers warrant the price a little better..I wouldnt consider a 350z Although I do think the potential for high numbers is there. But for a car to just drive and not modify and have a sweet ride, The 350z is great..

    It's overweight, impractical, ugly, uncomfortable, has a cheaply built interior, no trunk space, no rear visibility, and all for about 33k. for a few thousand more you could get a g35 coupe that solves most if not all those problems.

    Fuzion, if you love your car who cares what these clowns on OT think? Some people dislike my car because it looks ricey. Some might dislike it because it was made in Japan. Most of these people have never driven a 350Z yet hate it. I wouldn't concern yourself with their opinions because their opinions are uneducated.

    I drove a 350 once.

    If it were priced about $5k lower I'd say it's an excellent car, but for the pricetag, the rear visibility, slightly above average performance, and decent interior left me with a :sad2: "meh"


    now the GTO looks great on paper and am hoping to test drive one soon :x:

    So have I, and I agree with your assessment of the vehicle, but many people on OT hate on cars they've never driven.

    I live in northbay cali, basically yuppy central. There aren't *that* many around, as some of you seem to think. I actually see a lot more BMW 3 series and 5 series than 350z's.

    I also like the G35 coupe better, in case anyone's wondering. :o

    It's not liked because of ignorance or just pure hate. But never any legitimate reason.

    Yes I love my car and know thats all that matters and all that.......

    Reasoning behind this thread was for me to get an idea on why most people frown upon it - opinions and all.

    Oh yeah and people complaining about low space - cmon guys its a sports car. :rofl:
