Oh, I was at Superior Nissan in Carson earlier. They wanted $5k over MSRP on all of them. Power Nissan in Torrance wasn't marking theirs up, though, and it sounded like they were willing to sell a little under MSRP.

I would definitely go with white--it looks awesome under sunlight

Yea dealers usually rip people off on the trade. They'll give you a "good deal" on the new car and give you crap for your trade in so in the end you get screwed.

Good luck though, hope it goes well!

I could definitely get it under msrp

alrite now im home... still w/o the Z...

after talking for a good hour
the manager was willing to pay off my car ('06 rsx-s) for 13.5k
and sell the 370z base w/ sports package (mt) for 32k + ttl

i told them i would come back with a down payment of 5k by next week
and we have a deal.

the only problem is that they only have 2 Z's and both of em are
brilliant silver which im not too fond of.
after seeing the pictures its starting to grow on me a little and im planning on making the deal with them next week.


alrite so on to the test drive:

first thing i notice is that the build quality has been significantly upgraded.
looks sporty , everyhing is within reach and you dont feel cramped up.
Once we started speeding up on the freeway, there was no problem making lane changes to the left but... lane changing to the right... all i saw was the dealer's head. Bbiiiigggg blind spot to your right. im not sure if i can get used to it but its no biggy. Next thing is the clutch feel. i tried to get the feel of the clutch at first and actually stalled the car once.. lol ..it engages really low... i think like 2-3 inches off the ground. once i got used to it , it felt great. Pulls hard all the way to red line and doesnt stop.. it doesnt stop turning heads of 350z owners either lol. the rev matching is really really really precise and smooth. ive read pretty much all the reviews of how great it is and how it works and i knew what i was expecting but the first time i attempted to down shift on the freeway, my reaction was o sh*t. that pretty much sold the mt w/ synchro rev for me. i was actually considering the 7AT thinking about california traffic and everything but no...im sticking to the manual..

guys dont be stupid and pay over msrp

you guys know this is the worst depression in history and
the dealers know that too.
if they are not willing to work with the numbers your offering just walk away.
its their loss, it shouldnt be yours.

I have to agree with you on the blind spots. Just a bit of advice get the color that YOU really want, don't settle for silver if you really don't want silver. Just my 2 cents.
