Jan 12, 2004 (11:05 am)

#3 of 475 Great deal in Elk Grove

I just bought the standard edition Silverstone 350Z 2004 model and to me it's better then the track model because the leather wrapped steering wheel is more comfortable. It looks the same and has 17" rims and 11 1/2 inch brakes versus 12 inch Brembo brakes and 18 inch rims on the track. Big whoopie.I got it for $27,000 with extended warranty,GAP insurance,and permaplate out the door for $32,000. I also get lifetime car washes and a slew of coupons for extended services.Elkgrove Nissan in Elkgrove California was great.

I was told that less 350Z's were made this year than even the Porsche 911 carreras to keep the interest high over the years and keep their value high. Has anyone else heard this????

I haven't heard that from Nissan, but yes if they don't sell a lot of 350Zs the resale value will remain high. I thought Nissan was going to sell like 30K in the beginning, but looks more like around 20K now. Face it you can go and find plenty of RX-8s and Crossfires, but not a lot of 350Zs at a Nissan dealer. In a way, I like it if they keep it a low selling to keep the 350Z more interesting, but it also makes it harder for me to find the perfect Z this fall when I am in the market for a car.
#6 of 475 Rx 8's

I was at a Mazda dealership last weekend and they must have at least 40 Rx8s on the lot. Dealer says he just can't get rid of them. This was a very small dealership and at least half of their inventory was RX8s. Then I went by the dealership that I bought my 350Z from and they only have 2 on their lot.

Seem to be doing well so far this year, 8,143 units January-March.
I bet they're closer to 35,000 by year end than 25,000.
Most dealers around me have 4-5 on the lot, maintaining some exclusivity, certainly more than the RX8 which must have had 30 at my local dealer.

Can anyone tell me how long it might take to order a 350Z Touring coupe from Nissan? If you did how did the deal go pay sticker or under? Thanks Frans
#10 of 475 Off the lot

I guess I was lucky. They had the exact model Z I was looking for on the lot of a sort-of local dealer, DCH Freehold Nissan, in Freehold, NJ. I got my MY 2004 Super Black 6 speed Touring coupe, with all options, including Navigation on the last day of November 2003.
I wound up paying about $2500 off of MSRP. They had originally quoted me just under invoice in an email from their Internet manager. They claimed it was an error, and they don't sell the car for under invoice, as there were no incentives on it.
Well, I was more than a little peeved about them not honoring their original quote, which got me down to their dealership in the first place, but overall I feel like I still got a pretty good deal on the car.
By the way, I have about 4300 miles on the car and so far (knock on wood) the tires are not exhibiting any "feathering," or uneven wear, but I do have a few tiny chips in the paint. I really only notice them when I'm washing or waxing the car. Otherwise, it's an awesome car!
