Default What to buy?

Hi Folks

Have had ZED"s for years, starting with a 260z 2+2 and now have a 300ZX N/A. Am considering taking the next step to a 350 but have a couple of queries

(1) When is the 350Z likely to be phased out for the 370z in Australia? i.e. how long do I have to buy one
(2) Am thinking a track with the Bilstein suspension - anything else I should be considering?
(3) What sizes to the Ray's wheels come in?

Anything else I should be considering?

Cheers

I'm across the ditch, so can't help. Surprised one of the others haven't chimed in.

the 370 should be releases sometime next year, then it will come to aust prob a year after that.

2. Track with bilstein suspension. The truth of the matter is its better off buying the touring and getting a BBK *big brake kit* from the states and sticking in the bilstein Pss9 coil over kit. The nissan upgrade kit is the bilstein pss *ie non-damper adjustable*
3. Ray's is a brand of wheels. You can get them from 14" to 22"
The best size looks are 18/19 x 9.5 with a +22 offset on the front and 18/19 x 10.5 with + 22 offset on the rear.

Thanks for that. Yes had considered a touring model and adding the Brembo's and spolier kit etc but assumed it was cheaper to buy the track model. Will investigate with the Nissan dealer. The website shows the Bilstein kit as having sway bars in it - but I have been told it's just the shockers, but it also says Nissan will absorb the extra luxury car tax and I have been told they won't - go figure.
