Nissan 370Z Pricing Experience & Advice

Nissan didn't do a great job of sound deadening the 370z, floor doors etc.

They then used tyres that cause higher end road noise.

I would imagine the roadster will have a little more with the soft top.

If this matters to you....

Thanks Yelarz, appreciate the feedback. Not so worried about drop top noise in general, had A TVR convertible in England for a while and they're not the last word in refinement :). But interested in fit/finish/squeaks etc. I'll check out a coupe at a dealer soon with no sign of roadsters around.

Haddock,  I am willing to share my experiences with the convertible 370Z. I have been driving mine since 2010 although have only done 33000km in that time & prior to that I owned a 350Z track convertible for 3 years & used it as my daily drive so I have a definite love of the soft top. Sure there are distinct differences with the coupe but a lot comes down to the driving experience you are looking for & I expect things to be a bit "rougher" with an open top car.  With the convertible roof up I don't have any problem having a discussion with a passenger, listening to music or phone calls & I find the roof insulation OK. Driving with the roof down does increase noise levels as would be expected. I have an Invidia CBE so exhaust noise levels are noticeable but not unbearable & at times radio is a bit hard to hear but I don't mind that, just like to listen to the car. Driving with the roof down especially on a warm night is always special. I have never had any problems with interior fit/finish or rattles etc with either cars over the last 7 years. In the end it is very much personal preference wether you go with a coupe or convertible but at least choose one & you will not regret your decision. Don't forget its all about the drive!!!

Perfect Bracko, thanks for taking the time. Great to hear from a long term owner.

I managed to test drive the manual coupe last weekend in slightly wet conditions. Love the car up close and driving it was good at last. No where near as unrefined as I'd feared, pretty benign in traffic with the stock exhaust and engine not really talking too much. Over 4500rpm things sound richer and more aggro which makes sense. The amount of power felt well hidden - not enough opportunity to drive it with 'more purpose' but with the wet roads the traction control kicked in a few times to give an idea of the grunt to the rear wheels.

I get Yelarz point about sound deadening, not as bad as it could be, but not hush quiet in the coupe against things like the TT or BMWs. The drop top experience though is too much fun to care too much, but if it can also commute, top up, on the phone then that's all the nod to practicality I want. When new mx5s are asking 45-50k+, I can't look past some good options in a much more powerful 370z.

I'm waiting to see what the dealer will offer a new roadster for and keeping an eye out for a my11+ used alternative (those my13 oem wheels are awesome).

Thanks again for the feedback.

Hi all,

Just got a used, private seller 2010 370Z Coupe 40th Anniversary in manual for $33000. Done 29000km's and absolutely immaculate with full Nissan books etc. Not the best deal but I'm pretty happy with it. Picking it up in a couple of days, will have to be doing a rear camera first!

Thanks, I do love it. I am getting out of a fully loaded 2010 Golf GTI (manual) which is a brilliant car, but the Z is a proper drivers car, much more raw and mechanical which I love, though I do miss the niceties of the Golf (refinement etc). Sure gets the looks and is plenty quick (though doesn't feel like it as no turbo surge).

Where's the Golf? For sale? Sold?

Since the price drop, what seems to be the damage on an auto roadster these days - doable in the high $50K's?

 

I've been waiting forever (trivial stuff like 4 kids and their cr@p getting in the way) and am hoping to do something late this year/early new year.

Guys, just picked up a nice 2010 Z for 22K. 65K on the clock. Pretty nice. I just sold my 2013 86 GT after only a couple of months. I was always after a Z but bought the 86 on an impulse. Never really sold on it. Stunning looking car it was and totally immaculate but just felt like it was made on the cheap. I mean, the ARE cheap to buy, but they felt a little low budget to me, definitely not as refined as the Z. But, I have to say the 86 felt more sporty, and more willing to rev. I can see why people would say the 86 would be more fun than a Z to squirt around corners and zip here and there in, but for me, the Z's refinements, the better trim, the better seating, the sexier looks (although the 86 is stunning in its own right), the fatter bum, well, I just had to buy a z. One observation; the exhaust note of the 86 sounded a bit nicer in the cabin. Damn, these stock Z exhausts are quiet!  Gotta fix that!

Yeewww, very old thread but hopefully somneone will spot the revival and help me out..:P

Basically looking at a new 370z NISMO in NSW (sydney)

Full price seems to be aroun 67K but this Price My Car site (https://www.pricemycar.com.au) is telling me $61k is a realistic target - not sure you can see below but it says

Driveaway: $60,903
Saving: $6,732 or 9.95%

https://pricemycar.com.au/nissan/370z/nismo

Then I've got a dealer busting my chops at little over $62K (in stock) Thoughts?

      Hi Elvis, this is an older post, not sure if your are still reading the forum but how did you go with replacing that plastic rub strip on your deck lid? Mine is wearing and I thought I might try Altapac, they specialise in tinting, clear wrapping etc. Anybody else done something similar? Also did you find a product to clean your soft top? Raggtopp cleaner followed by their protector appear to be the best product on the market, available in Oz from Auto sunroof and trimming in Melb. Rodd

          That's interesting Ian, didn't think 2013+ models were effected either, ie didn’t think they had those steering locks fitted. My 2012 had the same problem, you may have read my post. I had my car at Nissan waiting for a repair, not covered under the recall, and luckily I read up on the issue. I went done to Nissan to my car, wacked the lock with a hammer 3 times, got is started , pulled steering lock fuse there and then and drove off! I would suggest your new unit is likely to eventually fail as well so I would just pull the fuse anyway. Cheers, Rodd

      Just following up for info that might be handy for any others who have the same problem and same model Z as mine. Put the car into my local Nissan dealer and explained my issues and they had it for 2 days and found a fault code while doing diagnostics (which cost me $143). They contacted Nissan Australia and sure enough it was the fault code for the electronic steering lock. (I know previous posts on this topic have suggested that the steering lock problem did not exist on models after a certain year) So looks like models even as late as mine are effected. Local dealer gave me a quote of $1999 to fix it but offered to present it to Nissan Australia as part of the recall even though my VIN number was not covered but could not guarentee me that it would be covered. Received phone call today from local Nissan dealer and was told that all parts and labour will be covered by Nissan Australia - great news. Goes in on Friday to be repaired. Cheers
