Why did you decide to buy a Z?

folks, what made you decide that a Z was gonna be your car of choice? Just curious. 

For me it goes way back to the early 80's

I have never owned a z car before, but I have very vivid memories of taking a 240z for a test drive way back in the early 1980's. This red with a black roofed 240z had just been traded in and was up the back of Giddings' car dealership in Moss Vale. I rocked up. Asked how much. The salesman said "about three grand." In the early 1980's, that was a fair bit of cash. But not a massive lot. I asked if I could take it for a drive and he said "sure, no worries." He added. "Don't flog it, because we don't know much about it."
Well, I don't think I flogged it, but I gave it a spirited drive and...well, let me just say I have never forgotten the experience.  This car had a 280c engine; twin webbers and went like a rocket!  I have since owned a twin turbo rx7 FD which was very fast, but I reckon that little datto would have given it a hell of a run. 

So, it just seemed natural to me that I should settle down with a z after all these years. 

Could not be happier. It's like coming home to an old friend.

Old school rear wheel drive, manual, sporting feel, good performance, good looks, great value for money, put a big smile on my face when I first drove it... still does!! :)

Totally agree with everything you said. Were you into performance vehicles before you settled on a z?

    • Remote help for 350Z
      By me123 · Posted
      Hey I just did this and it wasn't quite like all the instructions say. Do the key six times and the doors unlock, now lock the doors using the manual lock by the door handle - not the electronic lock button down by the window controls. Press a button on the remote and the doors will unlock to signal it has paired.  I think I had to put the key to acc and lock the doors quickly after doing the six inserts, then the remote could be pressed without rushing.

      3.9 you won't really notice the SRM but with 4.08 you will. ECUTEK tune can correct it

      Sorry for the revival of this post but US 370Z owners who did the FD change notes that SRM is off by a couple hundred rpms. To those with a local manual 370z with a 3.9/4.08 FD, do you guys suffer a similar issue? And if so, how did you rectify it?

      I use a Miccus Mini-Jack RTX if you want another alternative, another member at a meet had the older model (Mini-jack RX).

      The main thing is to look out for a Bluetooth receiver that supports A2DP, but doesn't support HFC, this will ensure it doesn't interfere with the car's bluetooth for calls (HFC = handsfree calls, A2DP is for audio streaming). I'm using an iPhoine 8 with it, and have used a 6s and various other friend's phones (iPhone 7's, Google Nexus devices etc) without any issues.

      If you're looking at the Miccus options, the one I chose has some more modern audio codecs than the older one (APT-X, etc), which in theory means better audio.
