Overall:

I have been a 260, 280 300ZX (Z30) (Z31) and (Z32) so I am without question a fan of the vehicle. In the 80s and early 90s the features were ahead of its time with the most up to date features and electronics. The only basic comparison I can make to the Z-car is the Infinity class (G-Series) but for me I am a Z-car lover at heart

The Z Addiction Continues. —

I bought this car in 2002 and 4 months later I spun a rod bearing. I spent the next year rebuilding it myself with the help of my mechanic friend Kalani. At the same time I replaced the suspension with fully adjustable struts and new bushing as well as adjustable rear A-arms. During the early stages of the rebuild while my Z was sitting at my friend shop, the wheels were stolen...what a great reason to buy new wheels! :/ Anyway, 5 yrs later and it still runs beautifully. Update: 8/25/2010. Last year the Woodruff key sheared and damaged the crank. Fortunately I have a good friend named Ken. He is a fantastic Z car Mechanic. He pulled the engine and had it running better than its ever run before. Using it now as my daily driver. Still love the Z. Update: 2/9/12. The Z is still my daily driver. It has given my very few issues, although about a 2 months ago one of the fuel injectors stopped working. Just as I found some injectors to replace it with...it started to work again. So far so good. For those of you wondering about injector issues... the true and best fix to the injector issues that the 90-92 Z32s have is to upgrade to the newer style injectors. This requires a conversion kit. The old style injectors are a wild card. (Mine currently have 45k miles on them). Other than those issues, I still love driving the Z every day!

Pros: 22 years later it still looks gorgeous!  Loves the twisty roads.  Take off  the T-tops and enjoy the sun!

Cons: Not for the weak in budget.  Nothing is cheap, and being that the car  is 22 yrs old, stuff is going to break.    Also, there are not many people that you can trust to work on it, so learn to do it  yourself.

So Very Much A Sports Car, Anywhere, Anytime — Nothing, it is close to perfect today. Especially if you understand it is 25 years old and still a super machine. It was so before it's time. It set the race between the European folks and Nissan. All the others had to readjust their thinking the day the 300ZX came to town.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: This is a two seat sports car, way before it's time.

Cons: Not family practical

Awesome — It has great looks and turns heads everywhere I take it. It is fairly comfortable for a sports car and has decent front seat leg room. Maintenance needs to be performed utilizing OEM parts, aftermarket parts do not seem to mesh well.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Fun Drive — I like it, some days are better than others but on those good days driving it i feel more alive than ever. Good car to own for a little while. Not too bad on gas either, even though it'll only take premium. I've enjoyed having this car a lot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a fun car to drive, just not an everyday commuter car.

Cons: A little shaky when driving, but what can you expect from a 1990 car.

Awesome — Super fun car. Fast and reliable. Had no trouble out of the car. Mine did not have the twin-turbo, but it was nothing to cruise at about 140 MPH down the interstate. I blew Chevelles off the road in this car. The car was awesome. I recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun weekend car. Find a good mechanic if something goes wrong though. This car is no fun to work on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: everything.

Cons: so hard to do any major work on for the average at-home mechanic.

300zx Twin Turbo — Having a Z32 300zx Twin Turbo is like having one year old child. They are unpredictable, much too loud, hellishly inconvenient and keep you up at night very, very often. But if someone tried to take it away, you'd kill them.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Awesome

Cons: its hellishly inconvenient

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: it likes to go fast

Cons: it likes to go fast

Buy One, Do Proper Maintainence, And It Will Last — I have beaten Z06 vettes, Shelby GT500s, and 600cc street bikes. The potential for bolt on power is there for these cars, and theyre relatively cheap to buy. Just make sure you do the maintainence. It is a very fun car to drive, and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. Most people can't believe the car is 20 years old.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you're going to buy one, do proper maintainence first.

Cons: Hate? Nothing!

Mine You Cant Have It — absolute blast to drive. handles awsome, stops great, and OMG does it have power. boost kicks in and its gone. and it gets looks from everyone (including cops). it only makes about 350whp right now and its FAST. the cars are easily capable of much more

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: i highly recomend this car to anyone. if you cant afford the twin turbo the na handles the same and weighs less for half the price.

Cons: mods are expensive. factory injectors are only 370cc which limits the boost you can run
