its still a Nissan....HELLO!!!!! I guarantee that the Lexus will have fewer trips to the service department and the re-sell value will be better in the long run. Your choice though.matic said:what u think about the 350z. ive always been into toyota but i think the z looks hot. should i get one or just turbo my is300?
dude u have to be kiddin me right??? I mean 6K for a turbo will give u one of the sickest car's in my opinion with incredible speed. I mean 350rwhp is plenty to take out anything besides the exotic's. The IS would be a freakin sleeper car and remain classy. Can't beat that my good man.matic said:im not planning on trading my is300 (i would never do that). im sayin for the amount of money needed to turbo the is, i can just put it down on a z.
I agree with you on some thing and disagree with others. I agree that the mods will not raise the value of the car, and true you might be able to find a dumb young kid with daddy's wallet to but your turbo IS, but don't count on it!! I have a touring model and it was only $34k not $37, there are almost as many mods out for the Z as the IS, except for a turbo, but you have to admit, they were not that many turbo kits for the IS within the first couple of months that the car was out. Give it some time, and the kits will start popping up. Greddy has made a prototype kit. Peter Farrell is working on one, and Stillen already has a supercharger kit for both the Z and the G35. As per other comments about the the room; yes it is a two seater car, but I am 6ft 3" and I fit in the car without any problems! If your are looking for something a little bigger, go with the G35, it has back seats, its 22" longer, and you can get a sun roof, but it just does not have the "persona" as the Z has, that is why I did not buy the G35. If you do decide to go with the Z, at least wait for the 2004 model, so that you can get the smoking ass liquid silver color that is coming out I have not seen that many Z's around my way or out on the roads, as I drive 200 miles a day for my job, but whatever. I don't regret getting my Z, I wish I would have waited for the liquid silver color or the roadster, but I wanted the car six months ago!!!

But I didn't say buying a Z was the COOLEST thing to do...just a more practical thing to do. A turbo IS would be awesome if you don't care to resell it.
