Default It was either a Camaro, Infiniti G, or Z, guess which one I went with??

OF COURSE THE Z!!

So after having my Z for a little less than a week now I finally realized I made the best decsion!!

Before buying my Z I was also thinking of the Camaro, and Inifniti G37 coupe, however, the Camaros interior was a turn off for me, and the G seemed like a more luxurious version of the Z, but was lacking the extra lil sumthin the Z had

even though there was lil hesitation before now I have no regrets whatsoever about getting my Z and im loving everything about it!!!

anyone feel the same way? and if so any cars you were comparing or thinking of getting when purchasing your Z?

Nice choice!!

I test drove the camaro, evo, sti, g37, genesis coupe (bc the saleman told me i couldnt afford the z ) some pickups, wrangler. The Z just had something to it. it was small, light, had a lot going on on the inside. just the right type of car for me!

Good Choice! I also drove a Camaro, 5.0 Mustang, 'Vette, RX-8, Audi TT before deciding on my Z. I agree on the Camaro's interior.. yuck..

Congrats!! For me it was between the Z, sti wagon, and g37. I was very close to getting the sti since it was more practical and I have to deal with New England winters. However, I couldn't stop thinking about how I felt the first time I saw a 370z. My heart still skips a beat every time I see my car.. it's amazing.

Besides.. being 22 years old is the best time to be impractical isn't it?

Congrats! For me it was thinking about the M3, and CTS-V. M3 has way too many glitches and problems associated with it, and the CTS-V isn't enough of a sports car although it is a real beast. Also, if I went with the M3 or CTS-V, I would have had to get them slightly used. Instead, I placed a full custom order for a brand new Z (fully loaded).

Yeah the only reason I even decided to test drive the camaro was its exterior and everytime I would research the Z online those stupid adds that said "Are you thinking of a 370Z, well why not test drive the Camaro" so I was like ehh wat do I have to lose might as well try it.

But o well ima slap sum winter tires on there and hope for the best. and Im right there with ya 20 years and my first Z going strong man!

Good choice! Plus should I mention that the parts and servicing for M3's dont come cheap.

Nice color, I love the Red and Black Cherry in the Z.
After so many test drives of multiple cars, a sports car is not about running 12s in the Qtr Mile but the feel of the thing. Very few cars in the price have the solid planted feel of the Z.

yes, very true i took it on a long drive the other day on a road and even at excess speeds it takes corners like a charm. It also feels like its magnetized to the ground, even at acceleration. and actually there was a dealer who wanted to sell his base black cherry to me, but for some reason the color looked bland, so i went with red, white would have probably been my next choice.

Welcome to the Z forum! You made a great choice just a nice set of wheels, tint, and a drop makes this car the perfect car. I'm not sure the chrome trim is the best touch for a 370Z but if you like it that's all that matters.
