Default Finally got my Z

I'm a long time Nissan driver. Started in my teenage years with a D21 hardbody, a truck in which I hold in very high regard. Those things can take a beating. I then looked for a Z32 Z but they were just out my budget at the time so I settled with an S13 hatch. I drove that car for 10 years and it served me well. It saw some autox, local track days and clutch kicks from time to time.

Now I finally have my Z. A 2014 with the sport package. At first it felt big; I didn't know where the corners were and the visibility is poor sometimes but after nearly two years of ownership, I feel very comfortable driving it. Even the learned to live with the clutch everyone seems to complain about. Its not perfect (I had forgotten how bad factory Nissan seats are) but its a fine car and I'm looking forward to years of Z ownership.

I'm glad part of this place and hope to contribute to the wealth of info on here. This forum is a great resource for owners.

I had a D21 as well. Had 350,000km on it when someone hit me and wrote it off. Never leaked an ounce of oil and had same power as new.

Welcome and enjoy.
