Got home yesterday. Not even 20 hours of traveling could keep me from taking it out for a spin. One word: breathtaking!


I might get hated on for saying this, but it is leaps and bounds more car than my old 350z was. In just about every aspect. I LOVE this car.

I got my Nismo thinking i would love it the way it came, and honestly i did.

But the moding bug bit me and i splurged on injen intake and full exhaust and a few minor accessories for personal taste.

Either route you take you will be please with the results and the car. GL

I look at our older club members over this side of the world, and for a more rare model Z that would have been available when they were young, if it's in good condition, they will happily pay 10, 15, 20K + for it. And at shows people swarm over a more rare model, whether it be a 240z or 350z. Not sure if we have any factory Nismo 370's here yet.

Intake and exhaust are a given (Gen 3 and FI CBE respectively). I'm sticking with the Rays, theyre light and I actually like the look. Just going to powder coat them.

I have taken the Nismo out several times already and every experience has been fantastic. I never thought I'd have another Z. Life is good. Hoping to see some of you guys ZdayZ next year.

EDIT: Tera, I just might. The wife and I have been talking about it. Oil cooler and doing some upgrades to the brakes might be necessary.

I have considered getting one of these a few times but always thought why not just do a color change and up the power in my 350. I always refer back to something that stops me. "resale value". Very nice car OP.

The 370 Nismo is a softer, more comfortable ride, which I personally believe Nissan did to expand the Nismo market beyond those that only want to track it.
By no mean the 370z Nismo is soft and comfortable ride. The ride is very harsh and stiff just like my g35 coupe with HKS coilovers. If anybody look for a comfortable ride then look into the regular 370z. The 370z Nismo is more of a track ready car not good for street.

Congratz OP! The 370z Nismo is a beautiful sports car. I think most people get the Nismo version is for the look(bodykit and the wheels). I do like how it handles and brakes as well. As for the power, although it has additional 18hp over the regular 370z, people are saying it's not any faster because it's heavier then a regular 370z. I'd say just do some minor cosmatic changes on your car and call it a day until you saved up some money for a GTM twin turbo.

But if you do want to mod your car now, here are some ideas(one of the illest 370z Nismo IMO). Enjoy!
