Default FAQ: Please read this before asking a 370Z related question

Time to start a common questions thread to avoid repetitive questions. This will be a good platform for people with no knowledge on the car to get a general insight on the car.

Q. Im interested in buying a 370z, what color/trim/options are available?
A. Official 370 Z trim levels, colors and options list.

Q. What kind of after-market rims should I put on my car?
A. The 370z follows the same 5 bolt pattern as the previous generation Z. However only you can decide which wheels to get based on but not limited to prestige, performance, as well as aesthetics. For more information, visit the Wheels & Tire section.

Please add to the list in the same format with the common question as well as the answer.

Q: What type of fuel is recommended for the 370Z?

A: Nissan recommends Premium fuel only. However, if you're in a remote place without any premium, you may use regular 87 oct. BUT be aware, prolonged usage of regular fuel may cause detonation and premature wear. Fill at your own risk.

Q: Where did the name Fairlady come from?

A: Fair Lady and later Fairlady - The name given to the first line of sports cars designed and built by Nissan Motors Japan after W.W.II, with the specific intent of being marketed in the USA - 1960.

The name "Fair Lady" was given to the new sports car line by Mr. Katsuji Kawamata, President Of Nissan Motors Japan, after he attended the Broadway Musical "My Fair Lady" while visiting the US in 1958. He felt that the name would invoke an image of beauty for the car - because people would think of the beauty of the music and the leading lady in that Broadway Musical.

This is a common and accepted practice within the Japanese culture for selecting automotive names. It is not a usual cultural method here in the US however - so Nissan more commonly used engine size and model numbers as Model Names for the US market.
