In my country for the 2003 we have only 2 models..

model 1:no brembo brakes, no leather seat and the rest its the same like the model below.

model 2:we have brembo brakes, leather seats, VDC button below the steering wheels,heated seats (which we have no use in my place as the weather is hot and humid all year round), no cruise control and no navigation system.

we doesnt have the choices like u guys got in the US.. there are base, Enthusiast, Touring, Track and etc..

But for the 2004 and above..all the 350z are sold with the model 2. no other options. =)

Ok..... I just got my hands on my 3rd Z and to be quite honest. I have no idea what's the difference between them. Hopefully someone can tell me what model I have. It has the following:
TPMS, HID, Leather seats (both power), Heated seats, Navi, Bose, cruise, Traction control on the lower panel, the aluminum trimming, and from what the guy said originally head brembos but he sold them when he upgraded to a BBK but then down graded to sell the car. He's been the only owner (carfax) and hasn't done many mods for look with the exeption of the LED's tails, and new Headlights. Any help would be appreciated. It's an '03 for the record.

thanks in advance

Thats correct. I was able to look up my VIN and its a 2004.5
My sticker on the door say "01/04"
Another way to know if you got a 2004.5 is if you have knee pads on driver and passenger sides.

Question

Ok so just to revive an old thread. I'm looking at getting an 03/04 350Z. I'd prefer the Touring or Track but I came across this one listed as the Enthusiast but it looks like it has electric (grey) leather seats and also the heated seat switches in the middle. Is this an Enthusiast with added leather seats or a Touring that they listed wrong?
The stereo has been changed so cant see if it was the Bose or not.
Also, if it is the Touring, does it have the sub behind the drivers seat?

Default Is this a Grand Touring?

I am having trouble figuring out if this is a track edition or a grand touring edition.

It is a 2006. I have a yellow touring package and am looking to buy this one even though it needs a little work, but I cant figure out which trim level this might be.

I see brembo brakes, leather seats/heated switches, cruise, volume, BOSE etc... Any ideas? What kind/size wheels do those look like?

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I used to enjoy “What model is this?” until I found this reference:

Now everyone can figure it out.

I'm guessing Enthusiast, unless you have Brembos... then maybe Performance.

Same options as one I bought about a year ago and it was considered a touring. Not sure what the difference was between the touring and grand touring but I'm guessing just the HR

Ok so i have the answer; quite simple really.... call any nissan stealership, as for the parts dept, tell them you are used car dealership and you need a vin lookup. they will run your vin and tell you exactly what vehicle you have. I was at a dealer trying to buy a touring roadster a few days ago, i questioned it not being a touring because it had no Brembo's. the dealer arrogantly called the dealer to prove me wrong because the car had heated seats and navi.... But the parts guy came back and said... "BASE" lol..... Since then when i went to look at a Z, i would just get the vin and call a different dealer and ask for parts DEpt.. works every time
