Default 350 to 370

Been a while since I been on here..


Welp I sold my Z a while back to pay off college loans and what not. And picked up a clean s14 Kouki for a steal

(3,800)



Anyways, now i'm on solid grounds again and got a 370.


Here is my 350 that I actually do miss dearly...

Solar Orange in the back was my Z.

Here is my 240 that I bought after it was sold...



And here is my new girl! Pick her up tomorrow morning

Always thought the 350 looked better. But when these are done right they're impressive. And the power was exceedingly stronger than my HR VQ35. Super Excited!

Nice pick up. The power is no doubt stronger than the hr stock for stock but with an exhaust you will have the same power. Congrats love the color.

Nice, the 370's are definitely growing on me... Hated them at first but the more I see them in person the more I want a white pearl sport edition. And you're right, a few simple mods can make them look pretty sweet. Congrats!

Yes, the 370 is definitely an upgrade from a 350 in every way. Oddly, I dont miss driving it at all.

I can't wait for the z34 to finally end its cycle... its going on to 7 years soon....

if all the z35 rumors are true we will have a lighter 2.5 Turbo beast..

btw same source predicted that the z34 would be lighter, more power and a revolutionary design, so chances are we will have something a couple hundred pounds lighter and a little more power, maybe this time they won't mess up the headlamps.

That said If I didn't have my HR I would jump in a lightly used 09 z34 and drive it till the next gen comes out, but only temporarily, Everytime I see one from a side profile I get a excited, then I see the front and want to punch my steering wheel.

i like the new 14' coupe, someone I know has one - the only thing I was surprised by is that the hood vents are fake. I just don't get it, its a nice upscale sports lux coupe and they throw on those cheap plastic non functional vents!!!! First thing I would do is dremel them out and put some wire mesh in there!

Interior is on par with mercedes and bmw btw, I was surprised by the quality of it considering its a sub 40k car.

I agree with all of this, and the interior is quite amazing for a 350HP, $35K car. It really is as good a BMW for half the price comparably equipped.

I'm looking to possibly buy the 370z over the 350z , hearing the ride
is miles ahead smoother, do you find this to be the case ?
I think the 350 is much better looking due to the headlight/taillight config
and front and back running lights, as well as the front cowling, but more
hp on the 370 is another + . Do you have any other observations of the
two models since you've had both, for a prospective buyer of the 370 ,road noise in , repairs ?

Just figured Id throw this out there, Ive drove many 370s and 350s. I wouldn't call the ride better. I think it has more to do with most 350s are high millage and most 370s are not. Get a 2007-2008 with the HR and the HP difference is not all that noticeable. Pick what ever one you like the looks of better =P

Having owned both a Z33 and Z34, the ride is definitely smoother with the 370 (given the newer suspension upgrades over previous years). The 370 rides more like a "luxury" sports car compared to the 350 (which seemed more like an all around bare-bones sports car -- but in a good way). The interior is beefed up a little in the newer models and doesn't feel as cheap as it did in 2003-2008.

Yes, there's definitely a power difference. I noticed it the second I sat in the 370 at the dealer. They are both great cars, I love and miss them both. Have you tried test driving both models to see which you prefer?

I haven't even looked at one up close, just hundreds of adds, specs
and photos, I'm looking at June/July to make my purchase.
I'm thinking Auto , Touring.
The big pluses for me are (as you mentioned) 'ride more like a lxry
sports car, the interior of the Touring, and being a 370 looks light years
ahead of the typical paint chipped 350 interior, on the one hand that's part
of a certain attitude of driver that I identify with, I also appreciate
amenities both visual and textile. I like the navigation feature too.
For a daily driver in traffic , the 370z looks to be the better fit for me.
I'd be happy with either I'm sure, but might be ecstatic with the 370.
You bring up a good point, I should go out and check some out, but
in my region, they're very hard to find.
Thanks for the confirmation of the ride comparison, that is a heavily
weighted feature for me, I would be more encouraged to take some
of the trips I need to take.

Having owned both I dont think youll notice the power difference that much, if at all DD on the street. On the track my 370 was notably quicker around Sebring Track than my 350. The ride is head shoulders smoother than the 350 and the linear powerband is nice as well, not to mention the interior (though still pretty spartan compared to other cars).

Cool.
I like the Cobalt Blue (ext) the best of all colors, and the burgundy is nice,
but I can't seem to find the 370 with anything like those colors but
the turquoise/Blue that I wouldn't buy. Do you think the old Cobalt Blue
might be out there somewhere in a 370?

370z
Can you go through the gears in an automatic (hold gears)
by moving the console shift arm, or just hold gears using
the paddle shift system ?

For the 6 speed manual , is the rev match active on the
down shifts only , or on the upshifts too ?


I understand it's an 'easy touch' clutch on the 370z , won't
fatigue your leg in traffic.
Do you guys find that to be the case ?
