Good All Around Car — It has a V6 3.0L. For bing a 1990 i tell you the styling of the car fits in with the newer styling of cars these days. I love this car, its a blast to drive and gets decent gas mileage.The only down side to this car is if you are not mechanically inclined and patient on finding car parts it will cost u when stuff goes wrong. This car has one flaw in it from the factory other then that its a amazing car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Through a cold air, NGK V-power plugs, delete cat,add a greddy sp2 exhaust , and through a stage 3 clutch with fidenza fly wheel u will blow the doors of 3 series BMW an most cars

Cons: Trannys are week. and the way they designed the twin bleed valves for clutch.

Love It — Can't be too specific yet. trying to get her put back together. once i get the money planning a RH TT clip from Japan. When i got her obviously she wasnt in top condition if i got her for a grand. already replaced fuel pump, cleaned out fuel tank, new injector, plugs, wires, battery, alternator and belts. also the front bumper is replaced and put 350z rims on. have grand plans for her. cant wait to see her finished.

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

Pros: fast, fun

Cons: injectors are a common problem so dont get one if you dont like doin your own work

Performs Great, Reliable If You Drive It Like A Normal Car, You Will Not Be Disapointed — For a twenty year old car it performs better than most 2011 cars. The ride is solid and uncomfortable, but its a sports car. Performance is great it has almost instant power barely any turbo lag! Interior is one of the most unique interiors i've ever seen. The car is also very reliable for a 20 year old car!

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

Pros: Performance!

Cons: Unconfortable ride, exspensive to replace parts.

Overall A Good Car, But Only Buy One If You Want A Sports Car, You Do Have To Make Sacrifices. — For a non turbo the car is fast, the breaks are very good, even in the winter. It has a hint of under steer, but will corner with the best of them. The car is a challenge to work on, but that just makes the driving experience all the more rewarding. Being 21 years old it has it's squeaks and rattles, but with my aftermarket exhaust, you can't hear to much of it. the car is a looker, especially if you have the rear spoiler on it. I get about 20mpg on premium gas, (that's part highway part city). I have had to replace the fan belt on it and some other odds and ends but nothing serious. the car is a blast to drive especially with the roof off.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's fun, fast and a looker

Cons: it's old.

Can't Beat The Price Per Fun Factor On This Car — Fun to drive, great styling, great sounding. Draw backs would be common with any old performance car replacing old worn out parts. It could use some bigger rotors for more 'spirited' driving. Cost of owning an N/A version of this car is pretty cheap maintenance-wise, dont buy one if you are worried about pinching pennies at the pump though.

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

Pros: Beautiful styling, powerful, handles well. Interior feels like a cockpit should

Cons: Complicated engine bay for people with 0 mechanical experience

300zx Z32 Drift Car — I use this car as a DD as well as for Drifting at amateur events. It is not an ideal car for that sport, but it is possible. I am hoping to add power in the near future. Maybe bigger wheels.

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

Pros: It's a Z

Cons: Not enough power.

Great Car All Around, But Be Ready To Keep Up Maintainence — Love everything except all the tight fits, the body damage, and how i can not run 10% ethanol....either race fuel or 100% gas (unless it isn't turbo). Even with my dead suspension I can out handle most cars on the road. Gas mileage isn't that bad if you can control the urge to lay into it. Stock the car is well balanced all the way around except a brake upgrade is a must. Syncros in transmission are worn badly (common problem with factory syncros). Once I get the car were I want it, I would not trade it for anything short of another Z32.

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

Pros: Great power and made for gripping turns

Cons: It is hard to work on until you learn your way around it

Amazing — brakes are slightly underpowered handling is amazing even with horrible tires i didnt like the style at first but it grew on me and now its just interesting and cool any parts you need to buy are horrifically expensive the car should not be used as a daily driver like im using it as haha

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

Pros: fun fun just cool inside and out and

Cons: when it breaks you need a big wallet its horrible in anykind of weather

All Around Impressed — Absolute blast to drive, Twin Turbos offer crazy acceleration, the avaliability of tuning on these cars is astonishing and easy. Can be a little tempermental at times when working on it being Japanese and all, but all around a fantastic vehicle. Dont buy if you dont have patience.

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

Pros: Speed and look

Cons: can be tempermental

Great For Me, Maybe Not For You. — Performance is phenomenal, put your foot down if you dare. Being a 20 year old car it's had many problems, but preventative maintenance is as always the best way to go. I haven't gone past anyone who could resist staring yet, and has been mistaken for both Lamborghini's and Ferraris. Incredible fun, and much class. Girlfriend loves it of course. Only downside is fuel and repairs, both have been a small fortune, and most mechanics refuse to work on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you can appreciate something special.

Cons: Affording to keep it.
