Hi all,

I'm a new owner of the greatness that is 370z
I'm so happy with this purchase. I got it yesterday before the sales tax went up. I was hesitant at first especially during this tough time but decided to go anyway.

I drove 98 CRV for 6 years previously, so this is a huge huge jump.

After countless hours of research and negotiating, I finally landed a basic 7 speed auto - 370z (black). Initially I was going for the 6 speed manual, but was convinced that auto is the best way to go for me.

I ended up buying from Tracy Nissan. It was a decent experience minus a few disappointments

Pics will follow soon after I wax my car this weekend

Close to invoice. I guess I could get it down even more but I was kinda rushing.. due to the increase in sales tax. I heard from a friend of mine today that Falore Nissan was willing to get it down to invoice.

Falore actually has a lot of 370z's in their lot, probably like 10 or so and ya they were willing to go invoice with me. Steven's Creek was willing to go invoice also.

Thanks.
I've been driving my old cars for the past 3 days and it's torturing me. Part of it because I want to keep the mileage n my 370z low . My distance commute everyday (roundtrip) is about 100 miles
