Just traded in my Porshe 911 for a 2006 350Z (Am I mad I hear you say...Maybe I am) as I wanted something a bit less refined with close to the performance of the 911. I have been very active on various forums and enjoy meets, events etc. Anyway Hi and pic of the new Z below

If you cant explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

Hi and a warm welcome from me too netnomad  :thumbs:   depends on which 911 you had, I also went from a 911 cabriolet ( 996.2 ) but to the 370 Roadster, very different cars but both have great and differing characteristics. 

 

Love the shine on your 350, looks beautiful, welcome mate.

anything before the 997.2 that is water cooled can be a ticking time bomb, had mine 4 years and only replaced consumables :thumbs:

Hi,

 

Yep, I reiterate the welcomes above to you Nomad. :D  :D I think you will find us a helpful and thoughtful bunch, not scared of tackling the more outrageous 350/370/R questions!

 

Your car looks superb - we would very much like to see it (and you) at a meet. :welcome:

Jeff-W.

Welcome :hello: we are very short on Azures here. It's a stunning colour, never understand why there are so few of them.

Hope you can make Duxford and we can say hi for real.

Hampshire, nice and local for the next mod day in Surrey too ;)
