A possible mottah :)

Im "in negotiations" on this.
and no its not like the famous clio v6 thread.
Over the past year or 2 you may have seen me mention 350z before.
retail value is in and around that of my 2011 1.5 dci.
The "elephant in the room" in Ireland is the fact that this thing would cost 1300 per year in road tax,compared to 160 for the meg.
Everything else pales into insignificance.
but hey Ill let yahs know if there is any real life outcome.
It is the last of the top spec 350(note the bonnet bulge)

I know it's not my money but I hope you do get it.

You've been thinking about it for a while now and presumably it's your dream car.

You can say, 'I lived the dream'.

Doesn't mean you can leave the forum though.

Re: A possible mottah :)

Seemingly the horsepower is only a few ponies shy of what is offered in a Porsche 911 that costs two and half times as much as the Nissan.

I believe I can see the attraction

Albeit for me the running cost would almost certainly put me off, but hey!! if that's what rocks your boat, go for it.

Does Mrs Coup agree?

Do it I have always been a fan of the 350z & if I had the space & money for a 'weekend' car it would be my choice. You wouldn't regret it.

If you can afford and live with running costs buddy go for it.

Its a tough one, its a beaut of a car and if its your dream car then that makes it even more appealing. Like you say though the tax over there is a mickey take and fuel consumption compared to the Meg

But if none of that would be an issue for you then go get it sorted as soon as
