Default New Zee Owner in San Diego....

I remember driving my Brothers '71 240z when I was a kid. He now owns a 40th Anniversary 370Z. I wanted a sports car, and he sent me towards a 370Z. I am so glad he did.
I bagged a 2016 Touring in gunmetal with persimmon. I did screw up and fail to get the sports package, but I have already started fixing that situation.
This car is a true pleasure to drive. I am pretty sure I will own this car, or one like it, until I quit driving.

Welcome and nice looking Z. My brother had a 260Z back in the 70's and that's when I fell in love with the vehicle...

Later......Whit

Thanks All. The Stillen is in....first real drive with it tomorrow.

Juan....Thanks. I have already decided to go Ecutek. I will let you know when.

I look forward to the car getting used to the airflow and being even more fun to drive. This little scooter just loves to go. Thanks for the warm welcome.

Whit

I have to say something:
It may cost me $6k to get the Zee up to sports package speed, but zooming along with those nice, heated, persimmon leather seats just might be worth it.....

Yep; my base/touring has the heated leather seats...nice.
A Quaife helical locker is a good investment for your open diff....as it most likely didn’t come with a VLSD one.
Congratulations & Enjoy!

Thanks for the rec...I have already felt the need for a slip diff, and the Quaife was where I was heading. Thanks for good Kung Fu.

Whenever you're ready, go get tuned at Specialty Z. Sebastian is the man when it comes to these cars. He tuned my first 370z and made 602whp through a BP kit and I loved his work so much that he recently tuned my Supra two weeks ago. My 40th is going to him in a few months for a tune also. He's arguably the best Z tuner around.
