Well after 5 years of joyful ownership of a Pearl White 2009 370Z GT, I sold it earlier today.

 

With it being sat on the drive 99.9% of the time and only doing less than 600 miles in a year, it did not make financial sense to keep it.

 

I dont have a garage or a place to dry store it, so I thought it best to get rid in the hope that it would fall into the hands of someone who will be able to give it the care it needs.

 

Thanks for helping me out with the Z these past few years.

 

Ill keep lurking on the forum and you never know, I might end up with another Z in the future.

 

Kind regards

 

Aiden

Hi Mate, sorry to see it go, but understandable and its never forever, stay around, you have experience that new owners will always benefit from, its a tough choice when you don't have the space - I know I have pretty much dominated a visitor space since March with mine and its not straight forward, what it is to have a big drive or lots of parking.

 

Anyway onwards as they say but stick around. You are always welcome here, we have may people on here who haven't owned a Zed for years.

Such a shame that you had to sell your much loved car, never good having a car like that parked outside and not driving it as often as you would like.

 

Hopefully you will be back behind the wheel of another sometime in the future.

Well after a bit of a hiatus from car ownership, I’ve got myself a new car. 
 

Me and the missus have been car sharing since I sold the Z in October of last year. Luckily, we work at the same place so hasn’t caused to much of an issue having 1 car for a household. 
 

Over time though, the itch got stronger and stronger. 
 

She has a BMW 120d and since driving that on a daily, the comfort and ease of use felt great, especially having an automatic for city driving and traffic. 
 

Now the 120 with the xdrive isn’t exactly a slouch and is pretty nippy for normal everyday driving. But I just wanted something with a bit more ooompf and soul. 
 

I ended up bringing home a lovely alpine white BMW 140i shadow edition 😁  

 

The basic powerful engine and rear wheel drive formula is still there but it’s such a different beast! More low down power than the Z and quite  noticeably a more twitchy back end too.

However what both the Z and the 140 have in common is the massive grin on my face when I brought it home for the first time! Makes me confident that I made the right choice with the 140i.

I very nearly bought one of these before buying my Z in February this year.

Bonkers car, if you want it to be!

The Z is certainly more eye catching and I will miss the looks I used to get driving that around. I do like the sleeper look of the M140i at the same time though. 
 

I thought that the Z would be the bit crazier one out of the two but the M140i is a lot twitchier, especially in the wet. I assume that it’s due to the much more lower down power and that it hasn’t got an LSD, whereas my Z had one.
