Also, 2012 was the year (actually 2011.5) when they started putting on the stock oil to water cooler which, despite many arguable statements throughout the forum, is a fine addition which will eliminate the need for an aftermarket oil cooler. They say autoX is the one where you would really need it and the naysayers will tell you the stock oil cooler is worthless. The one day I had it out on the track between my gf and I and the seemingly endless runs she was doing and my back-to-back 0-60 hauls, the temp never climbed over 210 and it was almost 70 degrees that day. So take it for what it is worth. But in my honest opinion, the '12+ model year is a must. If you get one pre-2011.5, hit me up. I have a 25 row oil cooler in my garage that needs a home.

Other than that it is all aesthetics.

Feel free to join us or post here that you want to try to get people together sometime. You may be surprised at the turn out.
I believe the Nismo suspension is unchanged from '09 to '14. The '09 and '12 Nismo definitely perform and react exactly the same on track. The later Non-nismo models did get a "euro-tune" for the suspension.

The stock oil cooler is good for keeping temperatures more consistent, but it is not enough for real track (road course) work.

Thanks for the great info guys.

After talking to Hall Nissan over the last week or so, they're actually starting to help out a bit. We're narrowing down a few Nismos that are out there. And a couple are on our radar. They'll most likely be having one shipped in.

Is the Z community pretty active here? One thing I'll miss about the S2000 community is how tight knit it is. It's a brotherhood. I'm sure the Z community is no different.

Pulled the trigger on the Nismo yesterday. New 2014 370Z NISMO #0292 w/Bose package. Very nice 200 mile drive back home.

I'd have to agree. Not completely sold on the red pin striping on the mirrors and bumpers. Thankfully they're just vinyl, so if I ever decide to ditch them, it'll be easy.

That car is beautiful Pete!

Hopefully we'll have a meet once it warms up a bit and there's no snow on the ground.
