    Nissan huh. Umm I'm a Toyota guy so my advice would just be negative. I'll leave it at that.

    Why not a Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ?

    I like the FR-S but it just doesn't have the power the 370 has. Just been something I have been kicking around. Looking for something fun! :)

    Just too small, and if it's like other Nissans, cheap interior.

    Boy that's the truth. I test drove a Titan before I bought my tundra, just to see if i was buying the right truck. I only took it a block. The ride sucked and it was super flimsy feeling on the inside

    Just got done test driving a 370 z convertible 2012. Non sport version, auto tranny. All I can say is wow on the handling and performance. Like Sean266 said the interior is pretty cheap. Visibility sucks too. Not the car I want but at least it gave some idea how they handle. I'm more interested in the sport manual. Really like the look of the 2015 Nismo though... Oh decisions decisions...[​IMG]

    Oh yes. Convertible isn't even a consideration. Just what he had to drive. It was nice he let me drive it hard. Not very many car salesman say take this corner at 60 when the sign says 35. lol. Man it was a blast!

    My father in law had a Z car and loved it. Super quick and reliable. I've had 4 Nissan/infinity products and I agree with the cheap interiors comment. Reliable drive trains and nice styles, but cheap interiors, even in leather.

    My brother had a 350, with 0 problems, didn't drive it much, he always had a truck and him and his wife are both over 6 feet tall, they hated the ride. My boss had a 370 convertible until he felt under the seat and felt water so he traded it in on a hardtop. I just put a sport exhaust on it and kept it for 2 day and dogged the shit out of it with my 10 year old son, what a blast, my son keeps asking me when can we take it again.

    I've owned a 350Z before brand new. It was an incredibly fun car. I'd never trade my truck for one though.
