    My car

    The the 350Z is simply outstanding, breath-takingly quick and a bargin to boot. If you're looking for a car to thill, then this is quiet simply it. To start with it looks great and ready to eat anything in its path. Inside everything is there you could ever want insuring the best of thrills in perfect comfort and luxury.

    Press the start button and be prepared to be blown away as the engine revs and you pull away to the sound of sheer thunder from the base of the exast note. The GT comes with a great speaker system from Bose so it is perfect. Roof down or up its one of the best you'll hear, not that you may need it as the engine raw is simply music in itself. Accelaration in 5.9 seconds is blistering good fun and grip even at high speeds faultless. Handling is beautifully weighted and turn in accurate and informative. Its not for amators though as you need to keep it firmly reigned in or risk lossing it in fast tight rural bends, but do so and it will flatter your ego. Lose it and your dead. Its one serious beast of a car and well worth having if you like living life on the edge.

    My car

    This is an excellent car - it's great value for money compared to the competition. Handling is fantastic, and it holds the road well.

    There's plenty of power from the 3.5 V6, but the engine noise is music to my ears. The steering is very precise. The car makes you feel like you could be Lewis Hamilton on the open roads.

    The GT pack is definitely worth the extra money, and the sound system is one of the best I have ever heard in a Roadster. The car is very quiet when the top is down. Stopping power is awesome thanks to the Big Brembo disc brakes.

    Gearchanges can be a bit awkward, though, and the sat-nav could be better - it doesn't allow you to search by post codes, and is slow to input your destination. Overall, it's a fun car to drive and I would recomend it to anyone looking for a fun fast adrenaline-packed driving experience.

    If you are after a Roadster, take it for a test drive - you won't be disapointed.

    Exellent ride. This car is a BRUTE;not for the faint hearted, but raw power with enough software to protect in extremis but still capable of being driven sideways! Excellent value for money. Black and silver are the best colours. Well worth the extra for the GT pack.

    My car

    For the price this car is unbeatable, it gets more looks than Lamborghinis I drove in the 80s!

    The cabin is very roomy compared with the competition, I tried them all and felt cramped in every one. Performance is very strong, although not as fast as some, in the real world of British roads it has more performance than you can often use.

    Handling and roadholding are both extreemly good, the brakes are exceptional.

    Noise levels are generally low, except for the engineered engine noise, seats are comfortable and supportive, in my case the orange leather has the fabric centre panels which have certainly helped in the recent hot weather!

    The sound system in the GT is outstanding, but could do with dropping the cassette and gaining mp3. Everything is trimmed well and looks hard-wearing, very important in the convertable.

    Running costs are where I expected them to be. Reliabilty should be up with the best but I am concerned that the dealer network is not equipped to deal with it. My supplying dealer carried out a poor pdi with tyres over inflated by 10psi, and oil 1 litre down. Although the handbook clearly states that the car should run on super grade fuel they were going to fill the tank with standard unleaded.

    On servicing, when I queried the oil used I was informed it would come from their bulk oil although the handbook recomends 5/40 which is semi synthetic. I would recomend the car without hesitation, but would be reluctant to recomend the dealers.
