Nissan 370Z Forum  

So why is everyone selling their Z's?

Minus the reasons of having a baby, buying a house, moving, crashed it, got laid off, blew the motor, or deporting, what reasons are people selling it? Personally I'm probably

Personally I'm probably keeping the car for 5-6 years. I'm already bored of the power, and the amount of money spent for full bolt-ons/tune or boost comes with unsatisfying gains in terms of hp/$. For handling the curves and drifting, it does well, but the straights leave much to desire.

Just take it to the track. Makes you appreciate the car in its natural environment.
Straight-line power gets put in perspective and becomes boring after that.

I seriously don't understand why some people want to measure the Z based on how fast it runs the quarter mile. If you want something that's going to blow you away in straight line speed, and you bought a Z, you obviously didn't do your research before you bought the car.

I bought the Z for it combination of styling and respectable performance. I still think it's the best looking sub $40 sports car on the planet. That's enough of a reason to love my car... and keep it.

Lots of people buying them, too. And not everyone's going to like the Z when they own one. We all have different needs in our vehicles.

Stop talking sense. That's not how fanboism works.

If I had the extra cash I'd buy a second Z, to use as a winter car.

Cause the Z is slow, it's ugly, overpriced, underpowered, horrible ride, mediocre handling, horrible exhaust and cabin noise, cheap quality materials, ugly interior, oil temps send you to limp mode, steering wheel lock will kill the car, makes the 5.0 Mustang seem like a Bugatti Veyron compared to the Z. Did I cover it all?
