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

      Hi mate,   Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope. Cheers.

      Yea I saw that cougar motors offer for supply and install of the AAM TT kit. Seems ludacris to me, since the kit cost me around 12K-16K alone for labor because of all the modification and fab work needed.   But anyways if thats what they offer as a business thats what they have to uphold. Just wish I saw it before I did my build.
    • VIC Japanese Style Plates
      By THindson · Posted
      I was wondering if the Victoria Japanese style plates fit the rear stock bumper slot of a 350z? I've done the measurements but it's hard to tell if it will just fit or be slightly too big.
      Does anybody have them on their 350Z?
