New 350z, Issues already?

Well this is my first post here and it's ashamed my first post has to be about issues but let's get to it. I test drove an 04 Z today, loved it, bought it. After buying , I have two issues. My oil pressure gauge stays stuck at 120, and my engine temp gauge beside my tach stays just below mid way. The car doesn't overheat and all fans engage properly. Mechanically sound but I would like for my engine temp gauge to atleast work. Before I get flamed, I've done ALOT of searching with not too much luck. Would I be better off going to a dealership about this? Is it something simple like a fuse maybe?

Those are common issues with 350s. Engine temp gauge always running just below half isn't an issue as most older vehicles run this way. The oil temp gauge can be replaced as the issue is in the gauge itself, I just go by the dipstick.

Yeah honestly may have jumped the gun on the temp gauge, it was on C this morning.. just hadn't let it sit long enough That's much less of a concern than the temp gauge.

My oil pressure gauge has gone past 120psi as well. I just check the dipstick every few days. From what I've read others have also encountered the malfunctioning oil pressure gauge.
