I hate to come off as rude BUT I wrote a very long and, I think, a well thought out response to the fellow who was looking for info on the 2003 Z.
I made a mistake and moved into cost which he was not even asking about and then
You jumped on my singular statement where I suggested to look at KBB wich was only meant as a starting place to look at what that Z might be worth.
I am done with this back and forth discussion as it is serving no purpose for the orignal intended poster.
Perhaps when I come back looking for advise as to how to maximize return on my Z when I go to sell it when the Hemi Dodge Challenger comes out in a year or so, I will come back here for furthur dicussions on who has the best stupid book on pricing.
Until then, I am out of here.

ah, now i see the problem. You are being oversensitive. I didn't "jump" on anything. I merely wanted to correct what I felt would be an error in judgement on the part of a buyer. That's what discussions are all about, are they not? I sincerely apologize if you got your feelings hurt, as that was not my intention in the least. I come here to be an informed car-savvy kind of guy, and I assume that's why others are here, so I share information as much as I can. Its that simple.
Oh, and, by the way, "I hate to come off as rude" ???
ummm... then you might want to try avoiding saying things like:
"Please Do your homework before posting wrong information."
"You gotta admit that your logic is very,very funny." (this one is from the regular 350z board)

It becomes a lot easier to avoid bent feelings if ideas are attacked rather than people. Just take the "you" out of your reply and replace it with an "it" and magic occurs

I agree, and I try to do that. In my original reply, I attacked KBB ... but there's just no way to know what exactly will offend some people.

Here's a problem, or shall I say a challenge, looking for an answer.
Has anyone used either seat covers or car covers on their 350 roadsters? My car has a black interior that I know is going to get very hot, and I'd like to get some sort of seat cover that's a step up from throwing a beach towel on it, but less than super-duper, sheepskin (sheepskin?? In the summer????) seat covers.
I saw some canvas ones on line, but they had a big notice that they can't be used if you have side airbags, which my car has.
Also, since my car won't be garaged while at the beach, I'd like to have some sort of cover to use at night. The blowing sand there can sometimes be nasty, and I'd like to protect both the paint and the top from getting sand in its workings. Anyone have any experience with any sort of cover?

I think you'll find most seat covers can't be used with side airbags. I suppose maybe one that just hangs off the headrest (??).
ah... quick search and found these:
although they are sheepskin. personally, I like the nomex covers. I wonder if you could find those in a sideless design.

if it has the alignment problem the tires wear out on the inside between 10,000 and 12,000 miles.I just done a lemon law on an 2004 was on my third set of front tires at 20,000 plus front brakes at 20,000. You wont know by driving it as they drive fine you just hear a roaring noise between 20 to 40 miles an hour.

We have a 2005 Touring. Nav. system cover does not open and close as it should, sometimes gets stuck half-way, sometimes would not open or close at all. Dealership cannot figure out what's wrong. Anybody had the same problem? Thanks.
