Exclamation 370z Dilema

Ok so here's my dilemma:

I've always been a car enthusiast but for some reason i've been thinking on trading the Z for something else like a 335i, Audi S4 or STi. The main reason for this is perhaps to have a 4 seater and having more power.

Before buying the Z I was clear that I wanted a boosted ride for easier HP gains. But the Z was just to damn beautiful.

So, right now i'm considering boosting the Z and buying something like an 2012 Audi A4 for daily use. The only downsize is the huge investment that this TT modification needs (around 15k).

I know that if I trade the Z and get other car i'll end up throwing money on it too so I'm not sure what should be the right path.

My goal is to have a boosted ~500HP Car and i honestly would love to have a boosted Z.

Enlighten me!

Having owned a couple BMW's I should warn you they are terribly unreliable. On top of that the price for parts is right up there with Porsche. The BMW is a great drivers car, but man, it spends a lot of time in the shop. Can't speak for Audi's, but I hear Mercedes aren't reliable either. That's why I went back to Japanese.

Are these still made in Japan or at the indiana plant?

I'd go for a boosted Z and a DD like you mentioned. I personally think the 370 is one of the sexiest cars manufactured in the last 10 or so years. Add a turbo kit and you have the killer combo of looks and power.

Your gonna need more than 15k to boost the Z if you want to do it right.

I love my Fast Intentions TT and I would definitely go the same route if I were to do it over again.
