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!!!

Congratulations! I was pretty excited too when I got my car last December. Looks like you got all the bells and whistles.

That is amazing, I guess they are discounting on the roadsters now. Back in December of last year you were lucky to get one at MSRP.
#26 of 475 Good deal???

I just got an end-of-month only offer for a 2004 350Z Roadster and I'm not sure if I should take it: $1,000 over invoice. I've seen people paying $1k over on this board, but is that still a good price this late in the model year? Thanks for your opinion...
