Default Base (w/Nismo Parts - Non Nismo Z) vs Sport Package

Hey guys...

I'm looking into buying a z w/ sport package 6MT.
The problem is, it's been hell trying to find the exact one I want.
Mont Blue/6MT/Sport Package.

One of the dealers are searching their database for one with little to no luck but they are willing to sell me a Mont Blue/6MT/Base and add Nismo Headers, CBE and Intake and allow me to finance the costs. I know the advantages of the Sport Package, but I'm weighing the two options.

My two main concerns are:
Synchro Rev Match and VLSD. Do they make a big difference. I'm not going to track meets. Just daily driving.

I know for the money...the sport package is a good deal.....

well if you plan on HEAVY modding, just get a base. You can always learn to heel-toe or double clutch and add a PROactive lsd You would save money in the end if you went this way.

Nismo has different headers?
The exhaust on the nismo is horrible, and I thought the Nismo used the same intake system? The "Nismo" intake which was being sold for awhile was for the 350z.

Texas is way too far for me to go....Silver or Black possibly 2nd but want to give a good effort locating the blue before thinking of different colors. unleeeeesssss the price is something I cant turn down.

Something you should think about, might find your car in another state and worth the extra ~350USD to have it trucked to your city.
I would not settle on something the dealership is offering if you want something (like the sport package). Usually if the dealership is trying to compromise it is because they know they will make more money then selling you a car from somewhere else.

I just checked nissanusa. I guess the difference excluding the looks is just exhaust and I'm assuming a different ECU?

I really want to get F.I CBE but I thought if they were able to include the costs of some mods into the payments...it would be nice.

Obviously its a sales guy stating this but he mentioned (w/o my input) installing and financing a Stillen Exhaust. I thought that was weird.

Dude are you seriously asking that question?!
Sports Package is worth every penny!
Please don't get that nismo crap package.
The stealership is just making more money off of you.
Look for a base + sports package.
If they can't locate a blue, choose your 2nd color or order a 2010.
