Why do you say that?

I actually find the Z pretty comfortable. I'm coming out of a Mazda Miata MX5 so its much better, by comparison, but I find it similar to my C4 Corvette. I could drive it cross country. Compared to my wife's GS300 or my STS it seems to be a fine highway car.

As far as the stereo, it doesn't seem too different from what you get in a Miata, Corvette, S2000, Z4, Audi TT.

Step up to the big Lexus, Benz or Audi and you will get a better sound system, no question.

If you want to talk about uncomfortable, try driving an S2000 for more than 15 minutes.

And I'm a small guy.

You know, everytime I read these type of quotes, it makes me wonder...
If you tell that to every person who makes a thread like that, and they actually follow your advice, there wouldn't be those 100 threads on that specific topic, because they wouldn't have made them, but instead went to search for something that was never there.

Almost like a paradox, don't you think?

I think it would make sense if there was only one and absolute thread for every topic, but looking through hundreds of pages to find what you need is a pain in the *** >.<

I get where you're going though, it is a little redundant to see a repetitive topic, but without the appearance of them once in a while, seeing the same single thread is the same as being repetitive right? o.o

Weird...

I thought he was only asking for info on the Z, not other cars.

Oh, and almost everything can be upgraded really. So if you don't like the sound system, then just buy a new one, unless you're planning to keep everything stock.

You're not kidding. After driving an S2000 for 3 years, my Z feels like luxury.
