Hey everybody!

Bought a 2015 370z Nismo edition. No tech sadly.

I would say I'm really happy with the car so far. Although it is an automatic for traffic and commute reasons.

Welcome. I got a 7AT also. Just tired of shifting after owning a 911 and 2 STIs. Funny thing is I loads of fun using the paddle shifters. Have fun with the new Z.

I haven't really been using the paddle shifters actually. I really should start trying it out. On the contrary I actually don't know how to use them . I'm coming from a mazdaspeed3 so this is very different for me now haha.

I mainly use the paddles for up shifts and let the car down shift it self. When slowing down the car will down shift for you, like when coming to a stop. WOT up shifts are pretty fun. Way faster than any auto tranny I have ever driven. My biggest complaint with the car at first was how slow the throttle response is. Got a Sprint Booster V3 and now the throttle is perfect.
