I know there is a mob in Qld hire 370 along with the Ferrari etc. Don't know who they are tho as I've only seen them on the road cruise. Its only a day too.

My accountant told me he did it as a gift thing from his kids, he actually preferred the z to the others. Haha.

The 350Z is too old - unlikely to be able to hire one

 

If you hire a Ferrari in Sydney you have to pay a $12k bond :roadrage:

Syncro on 5th gear is the common issue for 03~05 models

Clutch master cylinder problems can also occur

 

Otherwise same checks you would do on any car

Rust, radiator, engine condition/performance, transmission, diff, brakes, general body and interior condition, does air/con work

Have a look at the tyre brand - it will give you a clue as to the maintenance level performed by the owner

Check the electric windows, seats, hatch release and fuel flap release

Check service history also

    • Recently purchased a 370Z have some questions
      By andrewfranze9991 · Posted
      Hi guys recently purchased a 2010 370Z absolutely love the car, but run into a couple things I need answers for. 1. The car come with a quick release steering wheel and because the wheel is not factory the vdc, slip, abs and airbag light is on. Is there anyway I can sort this out I want vdc on when normal driving? 2. Because of the issue in the first question I attempted to swap the factory steering wheel over. ( was tuning the wheels a fair bit while the car was off ) anway when I turned the car back on the power steering made a grinding noise, and feels very heavy ever since, seems to get heavy after hard driving. And my last question is the clutch, I’m not sure if it how it is but seems very fragile, for example a couple clutch kicks in 2nd gear it will just slip instead of grabbing not sure if all the clutches are weak like that. But yeah if anyone can help me out on some of this questions would be appreciated cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Offset for Wheels to clear Brembos

      Holy thread revival batman but it's not just about offset, it's about x-factor. 350Z's with Brembo brakes need wheels with a minimum 55mm brake x-factor to clear
