Hi Addo!!

Marshall Nissan, in Cambridge - You're in luck, they're the best 350z dealer in the country - and only a short drive from you - I got my last Z from there and haven't regretted it for a second!

...only 90% sure? Put a towbar on the thing if you have to, but for godsake get one - They just have the grin factor you're looking for mate :doh:


...oh, and welcome to the Club!

Cheers Chubbs

Yeah I've been keeping an eye on nissan used car site. Still debating the choice between dealer and private especially if it's still under three years old. I would obviously get a full AA inspection if going private.

I couldn't believe the standard warranty from MK Glyn Hopkin for a used Z over 3 years old was only 6 months!!

Newbie Lurker from across the pond in the wilds of Montana.

Just discovered this forum as a new 350Z owner and sometimes Anglophile (have visited UK several times and had a minor in English lit in college, even subscribe to the Economist.)

Just bought my second Z: Silver Roadster Enthusiast, auto, bags, carpet, etc.--a 2006 but brand-new. After hard negotiation paid US$32,900.05 (16,344 UK) with MSRP of about $37,784 (18,770 UK).

I'm now a semi-retired mostly toothless old lion getting ready for Medicare, but love to feel the joy, once again, of wind in my sparse white hair and a heavy foot on the accelerator on winding, empty (mostly) Montana roads. Its a good life, and I hope to enjoy fully what remains.

I look forward to visiting the forums.

What a lovely first post, Lone Ranger!

Why are you only sometimes an anglophile!!! - typo I bet!

You Americans are sooo lucky - The same car would cost up to $50,000 - 25,000 in England :( - then there's the price of fuel :cry:

Try to organise your next UK visit to coincide with one of our meets - We'd love to see you. Maybe you could bring FrankieZZ, our US committee member, in your suitcase.

Just one final thing - Make a new thread in the 'new around here' area, WITH PICS - we love to see other people's Zeds, especially if they have the steering wheel on the wrong side :)


...just call me Tonto :blush:

Another guilty one....
Had a Z for 6 months now and love it ('06 model, gun metal).
I'm mostly around bracknell area, though daily communte to work leads me to Wycombe.
In fact I've just relaised that I posted a response on the 06 oil consumption thread, so not too bad afterall.
