Hi All,

New member here from Sydney Australia. My past rides were a 350hp mk6 Golf R and an Audi 8V S3. The R was amazing, full bolt ons with KW DDC coilovers. But that got written off in an accident by someone going through a red. the Audi was great but found it to be a bit too refined and boring. moved on to motorbikes with a Honda MC22 250RR and an Aprilia RSV4.

After the bikes I wanted to get back into the car scene and wanted something a bit more involving. Was looking at getting into either an R32 or R33 GTR, but they are around $120K-$150k AUD for something decent. I couldnt justify spending that much on a car that is over 20 years old....

Hence my decision to go with the new Z. Manual, 2 seater, rear wheel drive 400hp...nothing really like it out there and wanted to get a dirty ICE before electric and hybrid cars take over the market!

I havent driven a Manual car in so long and confidence is pretty low so hopefully will get the hang of it once its in my hands!

Are you going to see what availability is like or put a deposit down to get a name against a car? Do you think forgoing the paddles and advanced 9-speed is a mistake?

Welcome to the forum @CJY84! Have you thought about what color or trim options you'll go with?

im not sure yet, i do want to see the car in person, test drive and watch some reviews. See what happens as each day comes. yeah, i get later down the track it will be a mistake, hence going with with manual.
