Welcome Mark. How does the Z compare to the GT in your opinion?

Hope to see you stick around!

the stang felt a little more "thrown back into seat when pressed gas" than the 350. but the 350 feels more like an exotic fast car. thats what i like. it feels more luxurious.The mustang is so common in my area. i dont see many 350s areund here. ESPECCIALLY in red. ive never seen one on the street before mine. i am 19. this car is fast enough for me if not too fast. lol. same went for the stang. i threw in so much money into the looks of the stang but barely anything into performance except for exahust. i love my new z's stock lines. i grew out of the body kit stage but performance... i hear bolt ons wont do much, so im guessing it's no too worth it. ive thrown away so much money i dont feel like throwin more here. I LOVE how this car is stock inside and out. its fast enough for me... i Love the stock exhaust... it has a nice exotic rumble, not like the stang where it sounds llike basically an AMerican muscle car sound which it was. i love the rims, the interior, the height everything. BUT i would want to differentiate from the z guy next to me ya know. not be like every other one. i dont know if there is anything really to don since i love it stock so much. i mean how much lower can you drop it... i mean stock it sits so low and i love how it looks. i thought maybe a badge change. maybe something else so i dont have to drop so much cash. any z'ers on here with no mods and no plans to do them cuz they love stock? or should i do soemthing... any opinions would be highly appreciated

THANKs

As for cosmetic add ons there are so many choices out there. A nice front lip such as veliside v1 or nismo is a slight add on that can do wonders for the look of the Z. Very subtle yet nice. Rims are also another thing many people change and can really make the car stand out more. Check out our garage and look at some peoples Z's and see what you might like to do to yours.

Welcome and congrats on your purchase! :shiftdrive:

If you want some badge changes check out www.performancenissanparts.com and www.courtesyparts.com There are many creative ways to make your Z stand out for little money....shorty antenna you can find on ebay cheap, also if you want some little carbon fiber accents you can go to www.evo-r.net or www.elegantwooddesign.com some inexpensive goodies on those sites as well! Good luck, and watch out for the mod bug, it bites HARD! :wink:

the Z feels so much better. better traction for sure. the exotic feel of the z i love so much more over the muscle car feel.

So many things to buy out there. Would you rather do something cosmetic or more for performance? Investing in a nice radar detector isnt a bad idea either. I would recommend either the Valentine 1 or the Escort Passport 8500

What kind do you have though. Investing in either an escort passport 8500 or a Valentine 1 can make a big difference over a cheaper one.


Another thing is upgrading the stereo. Even though you probably have the Bose I would highly recommend changing that out.
