Getting ready to buy a 350z,but i saw the edmund article professional driver review long term test about how it drive.and stated too stiff ride can't drive it everyday only for weekend car it will kill your body over every pot hole and uneven road.although it provide excellent handling and power,it doesn't feel excited to drive and not connected to the road .I don't want to regret buying it ,i own a prelude now

Sammy,

Going from a prelude, you will feel more connected to the road than ever in a Z. The article is true, if you live in NYC like me, you don't want to drive this car every day in every scenario. It's a purpose built machine, so it will ride a bit more rough than that BMW or Lexus that attempts sportiness, but is really a comfort car at heart. The Z is a sports car, period.

Go drive one. It'll speak for itself.

Well, even if you have a last model Prelude Type-SH, the Z will blow it out of the water with handling. I know, because I have driven the SH with the active diff. If it's an older lude, well, you get the idea.

The Z really is a great car.. I honestly couldn't see myself driving anything else (well, except for a GTR or Ferrari..)

You won't miss the vtec engine, trust me. With the VQ35DE, you have continuous access to "vtec", or the more aggressive cam lobe. Doesn't matter the rpm, like it matters with vtec. You don't have to wait until 4500rpm to feel your car pull, you get that feeling from just above idle. Not to mention the torque!

Where in NY are ya? If your close, we can go for a demo. You'll be hooked man lol

All models will feel the same. There isnt an engine nor suspension difference in any of the Z's, so no it doenst matter which one in everyday driving.
