@AllForTheCash/kenchan

did you guys keep the G's bc it had a backseat? Part of me thinks considering how much value the dropped that it might be best to just save as much and use the G as a daily driver and the 370z when the weather is nice; also would be nice to have a car with a backseat as well

In all honesty I never used the Back-seat in the G35c. I think maybe 3 times in the 6 years I owned it....That being said I also do have a Daily 4 door front wheel driver ..So the 2 seat factor of the Z doesn't bother me, but the car is short of space ..If you can keep the G35c go ahead and do it. I had to let mine go and it was a great buy for the person who got it....

I love the Z and its a fun car to drive.

originally not really for me because i have a dd (honda fit) for my kids and cargo and winter driving. i usually overlap my hobby car JUST IN CASE i dont like the new one i dont have to go find another car.

i was going to sell the G35C after maybe 3-4months of owning the 370Z thinking they must be pretty similar considering both nissans, RWD, VQ engine, etc. but i realized how different these two cars are... i decided to keep the G as my main car for summer time and Z for fun-only now that my kids are old enough to hop in/out by themselves.

im going to be selling the Fit pretty soon and get a 11' or 12' WRX-hatch this coming winter

well, again; i just want to thank everyone for their input (I saw that someone else asked the same question as I); I'm thinking what I'll probably do is keep my G for AT LEAST another 2years and then see what happens. With gas prices shooting through the roof that last couple of weeks; I'm thinking a paid off car will help with the increase cost of fuel.

Anyway; I think I'll also use this time to do some minor upgrades such as a Z-tube, mrev2 along with a 5/16 spacer. I'll definitely be lurking on the forum; that's for sure since I'm becoming a big fan of Nissan and Infiniti in general.

@former G owners
Hope you don't mind the constant questions about how the Z compares to the G and all. Umm...one question comes to mind real quick; seems everyone talks of the G 'low-end torque'; is that to say that to really feel the Z kick in etc; you have to keep the revs high? Also, one of the things that I really love about the G is even though it's a coupe; it's bigger than most cars on the inside (in particular my old mustang); how does the Z compare to the old one when it comes to space - take into consideration I'm a pretty big guy (6ft 235lb)

There's a million threads on height. I'm 6ft 170lbs. I fit perfect. And the way I have positioned myself in the Z, I would appear to be a smaller guy. (So my wife says). If you are wide bodied you may have some discomfort from bolstering but head and legroom are pretty good. I think you would have to be over 6'2 to possibly have an issue with headroom. I do know we have many 6'4 guys on here that don't complain, and a few that do. Fat guys always complain bout the Z. I won't even try to explain that one. Lol

np! i think that's a good decision to just wait it out and keep your G.
there's still a huge market for aftermarket bits for the car so plenty of stuff you can do to it.

im real happy how my EibachProkit + D-Spec + Stillen Swaybar front/rear + Stillen rear camber arms + SSR 19's turned out.

in fact, this am i pulled out my G from hibernation and drove her to work.
man i love the G35C. such a beautiful car. hadn't driven her since Thanksgiving.
