Default New (to me) '04 Roadster

Hey folks. I'm the proud new owner of an '04 Daytona Blue 350Z Roadster. Fortunately this car was babied by the previous owner and has just 13K km on it. From what I can tell it's got every option that was available at the time including the gps nav (feels like a throwback to the days of Mapquest!). I don't have much in mind in terms of mods though I could see myself upgrading the stereo at some point. My former ride was an '05 Mustang GT so this is a bit of an upgrade to say the least. Big improvement in power but the handling is 1000% better (obviously) than the Stang.

I'm in (downtown) Toronto and hope to get involved in the local scene as I hope to learn more about this amazing car.

Also, I posted a reply on the wtb wheel thread as I, looking for a set of 17's for winter. So please feel free to check that out and get in touch if you have something. And please don't judge me for my plans to drive the Z in the cold stuff. I drove the GT through winter for years and that didn't have traction control, so I feel like the Z will be an even safer bet with some proper winter rubber.

Welcome and congratz! I've got a square set 8.5 X 17 Konig Unknown that were on the car when I bought it. +35 offset, I believe. BFG 970 @ 50%
I expect shipping from GA would kill that though.

Confirmed. Trav and John are sick puppies.

But what's that say about me? I laffed at the reference to the old HK joke.... Thanks for providing the straight line Bith!

OP, nice ride. As far as driving it winter.... judge you? H*ll no, man, you need to be put on a pedestal for doing that! Z's are meant to be driven! (But then again, living in Califoney, I jump into our AWD vehicles at the merest hint of precip.... snort....)

Thanks man. A decade plus in the RWD V8 Mustang through Toronto winters has taught me how to handle and compensate for the conditions. The Z does have more power to control, but the TCS should be a real boon.
