#13 of 475 350z Roadster, Ehthusiast Trim
May 15, 2004 (3:39 am)
This week I bought a 2004 Enthusiast Roadster from Sheehy Nissan in Waldorf, Md. Price was slightly less than MSRP at $35,790. Options included floor mats, convenience net, aluminum kickplates and splash guards. Plus, the dealership included a Silencer security system at no charge (it requires an extra "key," so even if a thief somehow manages to get a coded Nissan key, he still can't start the vehicle. I thought I could use all the help I could get in protecting my new Roadster). They usually sell it for $429. From the test drive to delivery, it was a painless experience.
#14 of 475 350Z Base model in Texas

Yeah I just bought my 350Z Base model from Bankston nissan in Lewisville TX. The TTL was around 1100.00. I got the car for about 500 below invoice but I had a Ford Explorer sport Track (Never get one they suck!) that I had to trade in. I am looking for some after market Shifting knobs, does anyone know any websites that may carry these? I found 1 or 2 but there were about3 different designs and thats it! I read about the tire problem before I bought my Z, so I purchased the Tire warranty product that they sell. Only 3.00 extra per month. Better then blowing out a tire and having to pay for it out of my own pocket. Oh yeah, whats up with Nissan collecting a montsh payment up front? That sucked and of course they don't tell you that when they say you can get the option of no money down! Shifty Sales guys.

Tire warranty Product? A blown tire will be the least of your worries if your Z is plagued with the alignment problem prevalent with 2003 and '04 Z's. My Father just got his Z re purchased by Nissan because of this non fixable issue. Good Luck!!

I bought my 350z redline, touring with navigation, flaps, matts, side airbags, and all other carpets for $35,399.. About $1k above kelly TMV. Supply is very low in the area and demand is high. I don't really car though because I love the car. Dealer: Quirk Nissan in Quincy MA. They were good: but like I said the above and think my trade was worth $500 more. No big deal!

They sold just under 20,000 units in 2003 according to your link. YTD sales are down 14.2% through June. The good news for Nissan is the last time I checked their site they were down 17.5% (through April sales) so maybe there's some upward momentum but its hard to see how they will reach 20,000 units in 2004, much less 35,000. Especially considering the 2005 300HP Mustang GT debuts this fall which many auto analysts expect to be a home run for Ford.
Actually, I consider this good news. Nissan dealers should deal. In my area, $1,500+ "market adjustment" stickers are still out there but yesterday I got a $1,100 off MSRP email quote from a local dealer for a $29,300 (list) Enthusiast model. A couple hundred lower than the edmunds.com total market value for my zip. No great bargain but a fair offer, IMHO.
What is worrying me less than the monthly payments is the cost of ownership after reading the forum on 350Z problems. I'm not looking forward to replacing the crappy audio system and yearly (or more frequent) replacement of high-priced performance tires.
#18 of 475 Check This Link for Current Sales

Looks like they've currently sold (thru June, 6 months) 16,839 this year and 19,503 in the same 6 months in 2003.
The prices are coming down (check CarMax.com) with prices anywhere from $1,800 to $2,400 off MSRP which equates to as little as $240 over invoice.
It will be interesting to see what the new Mustang offers and what the fianl pricing will be when it hits the dealers.

When do the 2005s come in? This response will probably be too late to help you but here goes....
Dealer orders for new Zs starting earlier this month are for the '05s. So you could order one today. 60-90 days delivery.
#20 of 475 Price for a roadster
Aug 06, 2004 (10:22 am)
Is $1600 off MSRP on a touring roadster a decent deal? I'm looking at one in San Antonio Tx.
Thx in advance.

You had better go get that roadster quickly!!!!!
#22 of 475 I got a one of a kind Z
Aug 18, 2004 (1:40 am)
After looking through all the inventory in Los Angeles I finally found one car with Liquid aluminum paint and burn orange leather interior.
The car was in storage still wrapped in plastic at Universal City Nissan
The salesman asked me to drive it back to the dealership. I knew right then that this car was mine. When we got back to the dealership all the salepeople kept looking at the car saying they had never seen a Z like that one.
Anyway I got a Touring Z with navigation and auto for $36,000. Edmonds had recommended a price of $35,700 and the dealer wanted $37,000 for the longest time. I've never been so excited about a new car!!!
