Question 2003 With 20k miles or 2007 with 80k

I am looking at getting my first 350z and I have found two that i like. The first is a red 2003 with 20k miles and the other is a grey 2007 with 79k miles. They both are in fantastic condition. I was curious what one you guys would suggest being the better buy. Better color with less miles but the first usproduction year or the Hr with higher miles and not a very exciting color.

ADD ON!Thanks for all the responses, It looks like i need to clarify this all a bit more. Both cars are a similar price around $9000 (the red one is overpriced so i would try to talk him down to what the kbb says) the red one is enthusiast and the grey is base. I plan on having it stay mostly stock as far as the heart of the car. All i would want to do is an exhaust and a couple cosmetic mods just to give it some more character in my opinion. I will be using it as a daily and wont do too much to the suspension and everything, but i may hit up a track day here and there. Ill leave links to the two cars if that helps out. Thanks for everyones help and opinions.

Welcome, you might include more of a description of the two cars. Besides miles, which option package is the '03 (track, touring, performance, enthusiast or base)? What transmission is in either car? How about the option package in the '07?

I'll vote after you update...

How's anyone supposed to know which is a better BUY without prices??

And let me guess which one you like better....

I'd say the '07.. but that's because I like grey ... What are your plans for this vehicle? Do you plan to keep it stock, go full N/A bolt-on's, or eventually go FI?

Actually, the '03 Redline is a Touring model. The '07 looks like its painted Silverstone (get used to describing it accurately on the forum) and is indeed a base 370Z model. Do either of them have full service records?

Voted and depending on your finances, get ready to swap out all fluids and maybe tires, depending on condition. Also, a BBK makes more sense than an exhaust as a first mod. Forget about cosmetic stuff, learn to drive it well and let THAT give your car more character!
