    Haven't been in a 370z but I DD a 350z. The 370s have a shorter wheelbase and respond to mods a lot better than the 350s do. I enjoy DDing my 350 so I imagine the 370 would provide that same enjoyment. Just don't expect to fit much in the trunk besides a couple bags of golf clubs.

    A buddy of mine has a black one that he just loves. I think it's the best looking reasonably priced car built today (and I hate 350Z's). It is an N/A so while it may not feel fast, they're respectable. I like the interior of the car a lot and if I were in the market for a new car, I'd definitely be test driving 370's.

    370s are damn nice. The only real complaint I hear is about the stupid gauges...

    What's wrong with the gauges?

    I test drove one. It was def fun to drive. The rev matching transmission is pretty freaking sweet. The only thing I didn't like was the clutch. It was so light its not even funny. I couldn't tell where the engagement point was, and actually stalled it twice LOL.

    That might be a Z thing in general. I remember testing out a stock VR4 clutch and was amazed at how much heavier it was. I'd be interested to take a test drive in a 370z to see if its clutch is any lighter than my 350. Hell, I've been driving my Z for almost two years and I still miss the engagement point sometimes.

    The stupid LED fuel gauge is nearly impossible to read in sunlight.

    Oh, and if you're planning on tracking it ever, look into upgraded oil coolers, the VQ37 makes a LOT of heat.

    Interesting. I haven't taken a look at the interior features of the 370z so I didn't realize they went to LED.

    I have heard of oil temps in excess of 300 degrees in the 370, thats insane.
