When I was in the Air Force, back in the summer of 2000, I think, I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall, UK, and my Squadron went down to S. Africa to in the flood relief down there. I wanted to go so bad, and my supervisor didn't want to go, but they wouldn't let me take his place. I was so disappointed.

My buddies said it was hotter than hell down there. Said it took them liek 24 hrs to get set up when it usually only takes about 4 - 6 hrs, because of how slow the heat made them and they kept having to take breaks. Still, I would liked to have gone with them.

Welcome Iqbal.

Thanx for the welcome guys

I've been reading up about the 350z for about a year, on internet as well as various boards, got mine in April 2004 - however, havent seen any others on the boards from South Africa

Great car - I'm in love and check boards every day

Usual problems - tyre feathering; window motor; stiff, grinding transmission

Usual BS from dealers

Still love it!

I got mine in March '04, havent experience any problems except for the windows only go down about half their distance when i open the door. but it doesn't hit the window from, so until it gets worse, i'm no worse for the wear.

Welcome to the boards! I visited South Africa back in the summer of 2000. It's a beautiful country and I plan to go again sometime.

Good to see a fellow South African on this board, Im from Pretoria (close to Johannesburg). I recently got myself a 2007 350z Roadster, loving every minute of it. I had been looking for a while to get one in good condition with low mileage and eventually drove down to Cape Town to fetch it. This car is a dream to drive with the top down and through the mountain passes along the coastline of Cape Town, such an experience!

+1 to another happy Z driver
