Talking Shock's new 2005 350z

Well, I finally got my 2004 Infiniti G35x sold! I went out looking at cars yesterday with no intention to buy right away, but I was able to walk away with this 2005 Nissan 350z Performance Package for a great price.

It's in near mint condition with the ivory pearl exterior and black leather interior. It runs great and is completely stock. I just learned how to drive MT yesterday after I bought her, but I am already pretty good at it.

First impressions: Wow. This truly is a driver's car. It really rides like a go-kart, and the steering feels great. It is a 2005, but it did not get the revup VQ engine for some reason, so it retained the base VQ35DE engine. The revup model burns oil anyways, and this one has more torque, so I'm happy. I'm not quite good enough to start slamming around gears yet, but from the second gear pull I can already say that it is quicker than my modded G35 was. It also gets infinitely (no pun intended) better gas mileage than either of my G35's did, as it's got two less wheels to power and weighs quite a bit less. I achieved 28 MPG on a small road trip today. Not too shabby for a little sports car. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase! NOw onto the good stuff:

It was priced at a no-haggle $13,999 at a Honda dealership. Apparently it had been there 85 days so I decided to haggle. The salesman came down to $13,750 and tried to tell me last minute there was a $220 charge for paperwork. I told him no thanks and got up to leave, and needless to say he waved that charge

Remember, my Eclipse was totaled?

I think that applies more to BMW drivers. Plus there are way more douche bag G35 drivers over Z drivers.

I like it. Good color choice also. It seems that many people end up with silver more than anything.

Thank ya! I've also noticed that, I see more silver than any other color combined. I'm personally not a fan of loud colors on a car, as 3 of my cars have been white and one black. Something about white just gets me. And the fact that it doesn't stick out all too much is great.

try to keep it and get your 350...if your not a 85 year old driver, gas can eat you alive....its fun to drive but expensive to feed since you can only pump premium or better
