IF YOU BUY A PERFORMANCE CAR.. LEARN HOW TO DRIVE IT!! My favorite type of traffic is rush hour on the opposite direction (it's rush hour on one side of the road, and light to moderate your side). I went past a 350z doing about 90, and he decides to be an ass and ride me. So obviously I went doing my thing, playing cat and mouse with him. He then zoomed passed me quickly, and I down shifted and followed. This is when I found out a lot of people suck at driving I found all my openings to pass him and I ended up smoking the hell out of him because he got caught in traffic. I let him catch up and the same thing happened again. COME ON!!! 350z vs my 325i? Jeezzzz

As fun as racing in traffic can be, I have seen the faults with it (expensive tickets mostly) and as someone your senior by a decade or so feel the need to put in my '02 cents. GIVE UP THE TRAFFIC RACING. Eventually, it'll cost you the cash you could spend on some bling wheels or whatever else it is you kids are into. Even worse, you could hurt yourself or someone else. I have seen many once shiny BMW's end up much less shiny with added Bangle flame surfacing whilst being boldy driven by a young lad with "skill". I don't know you or what your driving level is at, so I am not judging you. I am judging your comments. I still do dumb squat on the roads then and again, but my right foot really gets put down on the track. Okay, this is taking way too long and I'm boring myself, so I bet you've already skipped to the reply button to chew me out. Try a driving school or autocross organized by a car club! Full throttle (skill dependant) and no speeding tickets! What could be better. Best money I ever spent. My car ain't bling and it's no M3, but I can outrun most folks anyway.

PS. Can I tell a driving story here? I once outran (like BIGTIME) a guy in an NSX on a nice twisty country highway in my 2002 with bad brakes and a missing idle jet on the carb. That was fun. Stupid. But fun. Thanks for reading.

One has more horsepower than the other, so they actually sound different. That might not be why they sound different, but they do sound slightly different. Oh yeah the guy with the 350z just traded it in for an rsx type-s. He wants a turbo, I tried to tell him that an rsx with a cheap turbo like he would get is like just as fast as his 350z was probably.

agree - interior of 350z is way to cramped for me - and not as nice. And I think the G35 coupe just looks better - better proportioned...though neither is a bad car per se...

Yeah, plus I thought most companies luxury brand would make the luxury one faster? I guess they wanted the 350z to appeal more to tuners?
