Nissan 370Z Forum  

What do you like from the 350Z better than the 370Z?

2 things for me: -6 M/T shifter - the shifter on the 350Z was a lot firmer and shorter than the 370Z. I don't like the way the 370Z shifts

-Remote hatch release - man, why did they take that away


and I kinda missed the rear windshield wiper the other day...just kinda...

Yeah, my sister ( owns yellow 05 350 vert) made sure to stick it to me about that remote hatch release. Not a bid deal if you havent had it before . Set aside the hatch release, I envy the digital speedo that the 350's had the most. Simple and more appealing than 2 clocks in the same area

I don't understand the hatch release issue. If I want to put something in the hatch area, I walk over to it and press the button. Why would someone need an additional method of opening it?

On topic, I like the front end of the 350z better than the 370z non-Nismo.

Regarding the shifter, I thought the 350Z shifter was mushy, loose and longer. That was the first thing I noticed about the 370Z was that the shifter had been improved in the 370Z.

I liked the digital speedo readout option of the 350Z. And I kinda miss the rear windshield wiper as well.

i miss the heated/auto dimming sideview/rearview mirrors alot =[ . the sideview mirrors on my 370z always build condensation ( getting chilly/rainy ) in northern va and takes forever to go away unless i wipe it clean with a rag or something. i also miss the gauge where it had all different functions. i think the clock for the third pod is absolutely ridiculous and completely stupid . oh ^ and the rear windshield wiper as well. but i still love the 370 with a passion

2 reasons, I hate the idea of having to having to go to the middle of the rear of my car to press the button for the release...I can't just stand on the side and open the hatch...it's something that if you had the 350Z before, most will miss that feature...and also, if you tell something to put something in your car for you, not many know to look for a soft plastic button that's not a lever...if I have a remote, I wouldn't have to explain to them the intricacies of getting the hatch open...

Not to mention changing out the wiper blades. I don't miss it either.

I do miss the digital speedometer and I hate the 370Z's mack truck-sized side view mirrors.

I never used the remote hatch in my 350Z, so losing that isn't a big deal for me - tho when crossing from Canada into the US coming home from a business trip last week the border guard did ask me to pop my trunk, and I was like "uhhhhhh" :P Then told him how to do it. He locked the car. "No, a little more to the right..." so yea, can be cumbersome I suppose

I agree. If you have to go out to the hatch anyway, what is the point of a remote hatch release? Doh!

When they make a robot that takes my gear to the back, opens the hatch, stows the gear, then closes the hatch, we'll talk.

Rotating shifts? What do you do for a living? Man, I did that in I.T. for 15 years...I was younger then...not now, no way.

Looking forward to the audio pics!

7am-3pm for a month, then 3pm-11pm, then 11pm-3am. 4-5 week shifts. Yeah, I'm not sure how some of the guys do it. My 26 year old body hates adjusting like that, and the 40-50 year olds take it in stride like it's nothing!

I'm a network tech for a tactical military training center.

Sorry for the derail!

I too miss the digital speedo. I also miss having a sunglass holder, and I miss the nice big center console storage unit of the 350; it's a fair bit smaller in the 370.
