    My car

    I owned the 350Z at the end of 2003 when they first came out. I only kept it for 10 months, because I had a few problems with it.

    The fuel pump failed on it and it took up to three weeks for a replacement. The dealer said it didn't have a part number because the car was new. The driver's side electric window motor failed, too - again, this took another couple of weeks to fix, so I had to drive around with the window wedged up.

    There was a clicking on the back calipers when I reversed. This was down to a 'characteristic fault', they told me. I said that was not good enough. Finally, the speaker at the front on the passenger side sounded very distorted when the CD was playing, but when I pressed on my brake hard, it sorted itself.

    I'm sorry, Nissan but it just is not good enough. I thought I must have a jinxed car, or one of the first of the line. When I traded it in, I lost quite a bit of money, too. Maybe it was worth it, because now I've got a Porsche 911!

    My car

    Purchased the Zed from a Bedfordshire dealer after extensive testing of 350Z, TT Quattro Sport and RX8.

    The TT was quick but a very hard ride and a bit uninvolved for the driver, the Rx8 needs lots of revs to get a decent speed. I highly recommend the 350Z for its design, quality and performance. You would be hard pushed to but a nicer 2 seater coupe for sub £30k.

    The reverse park sensors and GT pack are a must as are the stainless Zed door sills covers. I would avoid the steel air vent trims as they are glued on and come off easily. Overall a super car to own/drive. I hope in the future Nissan up the horses to 300 and bring out an auto version.

    My car

    Living with this car is a delight and I would certainly recommend it to those people who are looking for an out-and-out, two-seat sports coupe. The performance of the Nissan main dealer that sold me the car was adequate.

    Compared with my 5 Series BMW, the 350Z is better in all departments - looks, build quality and driving experience. I can only assume your performance tester had a wet road to contend with because I regularly achieve between 5.4sec and 5.8sec in the 0-60mph sprint.

    This car is a snip at £28,500, assuming you are prepared to wait in the queue, and it will undoubtedly become a collectors' item long after the Mazda RX-8 has been forgotten.

    My car

    By far the best car in its league. All you have to do to fall in love with this car is just turn that 3.5-litre beast on.

    I have driven the Audi TT and it's nothing compared with the 350Z. I also drove the Mazda RX-8 but it is no match for performance, build quality or looks.

    The 350Z is just a fantastic car to drive and it's such a head-turner. I was driving it one day and in front of me was a 1997 Porsche Carrera. It wasn't the Carrera that people were looking at but the Nissan! How about that?

    It is for sure the fastest in its league it's just a fantastic car. I would reccomend it to anyone; it's just a thrill. If you can go for the level-two package, it's worth the money.
