I LOVE this car. I get to drive one tomorrow and id be lying if i said i wasn't excited.


Ive already had a chance to be in the car, and i can tell you (having come from a 350z and an 06' GTO) it is the nicest car ive ever been in for the $$ range.

The yellow car abot is NOT the new 370z, so DON'T judge it based on that. The 370z is freakin' sweet. I've driven both the manual and auto, and both are awesome cars. I love the automatic rev matching downshifts. I've also never driven a car that handles better period.

I like it, inside and out. External appearance is about on par with the GTR, both of which I consider to be probably a 7.5/10.

Really? I have to say...I sat down in it being optimistic...I wasn't super impressed. It just seemed..."okay".

ok your wrong there. i challenge you to find a review of the car that DOESNT talk about how drastically improved the interior is.

To be honest, I don't know. I have 0 interest in the car. The sticker said ~38k, though...

funny story...I, too went with a friend. He really disliked everything GM...the minute he saw (and learned) about the Camaro, he just said "This is it". The only compliments he was willing to give the Nissan when we were in it, was that he liked the reclined seating position, and the push-button start....

well to be honest I'm surprised you didn't like it, i think your the first person Ive talked to who actually sat in the car and still retains 0 interest. However, i guess its just personal preference. I come from a mixed background... My dad had Corvette's and Z's growing up.

I come from a 350z myself, so i guess i can see and appreciate everything that was done to the car. But as greatly as the materials and quality was improved, the driving experience is supposed to be the real clincher with this car.

How can I be wrong Gatorblue it's my opinion I dont like the interior or the quality. Just like I probably wont love the quality in the Camaro, but at least the price point is cheaper so its more tolerable. So please dont tell me my opinion is wrong
