Hello,
Thanks for setting up the forum. I am not yet sure If I will buy a Z, at this point it will depend on a few things. I used to own a 92 300ZX 2+0 N/A, I have loved and missed that car ever since. View attachment 2761
I will be looking at the Rosewood red

or Pearl white Z with the red interior depending on how dark the red interior ends up being. View attachment 2763
I would love to hear of a Targa or T-top in the future however it seems Nissan does not agree. Thank you to the creators of these 2 color previews I cannot wait to see them in person!
Welcome @LilFubar! Aside from the color, how are you looking to spec your Z? Manual or Automatic transmission?

@Rusty Thanks for the warm welcome!

Not sure about the blue interior just yet. Will have to see it in person to decide. As far as mods to the Max, there are many!

2010 Maxima SV Sport
Nismo Z BBK w/Custom PowderCoating
Z1 BBK Rotors Slotted and Drilled
Custom Wheels Adventus AVX-6 20x8.5 F & 20x10 R
KSport Kontrol Pro Coilovers (rides great!)
Fenders rolled
Moog Endlinks front & rear
Voodoo13 Toe Arms
SPC Camber Arms
K&N Intake
Resonator Delete
…and many more that I can’t recall right now 😅
That's a great list of parts here. Have you upped the power at all or is mostly brakes/suspension/handling upgrades?

Hey @futurezman! What sold you on the Z being your next car? Also, since you're a recent WRX owner, what do you think of the new one Subaru revealed recently?
The Z draws for me were: manual!, rear wheel drive, 400 hp, awesome styling, and hopefully good pricing.

New WRX = hot mess. To me it looks like a tarted up Crosstrek. Maybe it looks better in person but maybe not. I'm not planning on taking my car off road so don't need the plastic around the wheels. I'm doubting the new STI is going to look much better but either way I am moving on.

From everything we've seen and heard so far the Z should have a reasonable starting price (minus any dealer markup nonsense). Yeah it does seem like Subaru tried to make it more Crosstrek like for some reason. Maybe it'll still perform the same if not better but on looks alone it seems confused as to what it is lol.

x2 on your point about manual.
Any specific improvements to the gear ratios you're hoping for here compare to the last Z?

Thanks can't wait! Sold my STI Type RA as I was getting bored with it (AWD, understeer) - needed something fun and RWD the new Z fits the bill perfectly hopefully.

400 hp and a manual is definitely a winning combination no matter how you slice it! All signs still point to the price starting in the low 40,000 range so fingers crossed that stays the same.
