Dude, being a bit forward, your wife should have nothing to fear because if you have a woman that looks that good as your wife... Why the hell would you need anything on the side?

To be truthful, I am not a big fan of the Z's design but I recognize it is a sick ass car and as far as V6s go it has one of the best I'd wager (well, maybe beaten by the newer 3.7 in the 370Z). I gotta say it is cool to see your excitement - it is transmitting very well over the internet so in person you must be ecstatic. I think all UCP wishes that you track this car at Sebring and have nice photos of you gunning it down the runway.

i drove the G37, and it was a lot smoother, and not noticeably faster. however that was the auto, so it wasnt as powerful. if you are going to track it. do something to the brakes first. srsly. learn from my mistakes.

I don't get to see many 350's in my area. Mostly due to the lack of dealership and snowfall 6 months of the year. I must say though, that color is sick.

The under $20,000 is starting to interest me. How far we talking? and how many miles on the clock? I always over look them when I start thinking about potential new cars. I may need to find one to test drive this spring.

Anyway congrats and be safe with it.

Go and test drive one, if possible an 07+, if you're not used to quick car (like me) the feeling is just brutal, I'm having such a hard time adapting. When you turn it on and rev it up it sounds so friggin nice inside....

I paid $18,750.00 + tax man.. I did a nationwide search on autotrader.com and there was IRRC, only one 07 which was cheaper. My car has 19,500 miles btw. I got lucky with the price I guess, I was on auto sites every single day for the past 2-3 months looking for one.. As a matter of fact, I knew everything about every 350Z that was posted within a 200 mile radius from my house already, it was ridiculous.

Congrats on the car. That colour really sets the car off.

And I'll be the first to welcome you to the nissan club

mine is a VQ35DE, if you look at the first pic niko posted you can see a majority of the engine. the silver part at the top of the intake manifold just extends almost all the way down the top of the engine. so just no branding under the hood.

niko's is a VQ35HR, so it looks a bit different, and i have no idea what it woudl look like.

Congrats, and the paint is completely different because of the HDR shot I assume.

Good car, and i'd take one in grey over the blue any day.

Sweet ride. Any mods planned or are you just going to keep it stock for now?

Well, aside from the fact that I'm broke right now (and enjoying every second of it) I really don't feel like modding anything right now... I would have tinted the windows, but they were already tinted... If I had purchased an 03-05 model I'd be searching for new wheels, but I love the stock ones on this model. I want to change the license plate frame, but that's about it... I'll keep her virgin for now
