Default Would YOU buy this 350z?

So



here are the specs of this Z Im looking at, I am wondering if any of you would take a risk of getting this car for the deal since its an 2006 and Rev-Up V-2. Exterior is 8/10 Interior is 8/10
-All fluids has been refilled
-New driver side headlight bulb
-Nismo S-tuned Exhaust ($800 value)
-Will throw in a brand new in box OEM quality clutch kit replacement for free

Has 78k miles and selling for $7,000.

The mileage is very low and good for the price. For the "Oil Consumption" problems they have with the 05 rev up v-1. What do you guys think? Worth or not worth?

True. I would just go for a clean 05 then. Why buy a car with an engine that is known to have oil consumption issues? This is why I never considered the 2006 when I was looking at Zs and even the B15 SE-R when I was looking at a daily.

You're focused on the filler. And haven't given us anything about what actually matters.

Pictures of condition, how it drove, or compression lol

yeah, I agree, it's just looks like a really good deal. It's the Rev Up made in July 2006, I read on the forum that anything after 05 should be good. Just considering your guys input. Thanks for the feedback.

Not worth killing someone to take a photo of the instrument cluster while you're driving 45 miles an hour through a residential area.

Thanks for the input, I will probably end up waiting a bit longer to see if anything comes up, patience is good advise. Thanks.

those aftermarket wheels are a red flag for me. They look like they are cheap and may indicate an accident.......Not a deal killer on their own. That Z looks a LOT better than most of the used ones I have seen for sale.

Riden hard and put wet....

Reason for the low price is the present owner has enemies...



On the face of it, the specs and price read OK and probably worth a look. I'd guess the car is facing a clutch replacement since the owner has a spare - or he got a great deal on one like I did (and it's just sitting here collecting dust.) Laff....

But don't skimp on the PPI. Car is in SF so I can't make any recs on where to take it up there other than maybe Nissan SF. Too bad it's not in the South Bay, I have several places to take it - along with the dealers.

At least it's the RIGHT COLOR!! (Ahem.... see avatar.)
