Which used Nissan 350Z coupe should I buy?

There's only one engine, which comes with a manual gearbox, so there's just colour and spec to pick. However, there was a face-lift in 2006, giving slightly more power (297bhp) for better drivability. Power was increased again in 2007 to 309bhp.

The 350Z is well kitted out as standard, and features 18-inch alloy wheels, climate control, xenon headlamps, electric front windows, remote central locking and a CD multichanger.

Sat-nav was available as an option, and the optional GT pack adds electrically adjustable and heated leather seats, cruise control and an upgraded stereo system.

There are only six colours available, including Sunset Orange. The Z is aggressive enough to get away with it, but it is a turn-off for some buyers, and could make the car difficult to sell on.

You could also shop around for a car with some of the various dealer-fit extras available from Nissan's motorsport division, Nismo, including body styling kits and wheels.
