Hi Tony, Welcome to the forum. I'm from NJ as well (sj). We would love to see some pictures of the Z. What's her impression on the car? Most of our local police officers are really into the Domestic muscle (i.e. chargers, Mustangs or camaros). If you see a Monterey blue 370Z driving around, that's me

She loves it. We traded in an Acura TL for it. I will drive it too and clean it for her. My daily driver is a Ford Lightning. I needed a truck for the house so I figured why not have a fast one.

Just curious what dealer you guys went to. I picked this up in Delaware at Sheridan.

The Z looks great! Pearl White is a great color. I bought mine from Team Nissan, Vineland.

I went there on Friday morning to look at what they had. I pulled up, parked my car and began to look at a few Z's parked in front of the showroom entrance.

I saw 4 sales people standing outside the showroom door smoking and what not and not a one of them acknowledged me. They obviously lost my sale.

We really don't have any good dealer around here. Team Nissan and Admiral BOTH have accepted my deal and I had appointment on the same day for both dealerships. Team had the owner circle recognition for 09 and they asked me to bring $500 (vs. $3000 for Admiral ). That's why I went there first. I'm not sure how their (Team Nissan) service performance will be for the 370Z. I took my 350Z to admiral all the time and their service was "okay". Nothing out of ordinary.

I had purchased the wheel and tire warranty, in the event I hit a pot hole and damage a wheel. Well I ended up getting a nail in my tire, they took forever to get me a new tire. I jacked up the car in my garage and took the wheel in to make it easy for them. They then tell me to leave it with them overnight, I asked what the problem was; they don't have a tire machine that can do 19's! They were going to take it to car toyz.. You believe that madness? And to think nissan lets them sell Gtr's and Z's when they can't even change a tire!!!

I'm gonna go with Sheridan for service as well. It's further than Vineland but I dont mind. I took my last 2 Acura's to Delaware for service (Castle Acura) with great results. Plus I get free oil changes (3 a year) for as long as I own the car.

Sherridan like off rt 13? I highly suggest not going there. I took my Z there for service 3 years ago and went to use the bathroom. When I came out I couldnt find my Z in the service bay where it was. I walked around back to find the guy working on it doing burn outs. The manager claimed it was part of the vehicle performace test.

Didnt know you needed to light up the tires to change the oil. I called BS on it and got the work done free.

P.S. Their sales manager blows as well. They jerked me around pretty good on a 09 370Z. I walked out on em.

Surprising. I dealt directly with their sales manager and he took care of me like a king. The 2 hours or so I was there they sold like 12 cars. No complaints whatsoever. I'll see what happens come first oil change.

I went during the week. He really wasnt trying to see what I wanted to do. I asked to have one ordered and his whole demenor changed. That might be why. Also they werent selling many vehicles that day and had about 5 salesmen bsing around.

Yea man by all means dont let my one bad experiance make anyone think the dealership totally sucks. Just some of the people working there.

Na I dont have one yet. This happened to me about 2 weeks ago. I am about to go to fort gordon for military training for 5 months so I have stopped my Z hunt until november.

I will probably end up going to Sherridan. If they hold their offer of 100 dollars over invoice I really cant beat it.

No one seemed to have a 6M Pearl white with the sports package anyways.

Your car looks very nice. Gratz on the new ride.
