Default Im not a Z-guy

Last week I had the opportunity to drive my co workers Nissan Zed, I dont know what year it is. To my knowledge he has slotted rotors/ss-lines and a full exhaust. I drove it collectively 280 miles to and from the airport dropping him off.
I have no qualms about the power output and delivery of the platform or suspension. For me problems I had was visibility out of the cockpit. How the driver area was set up, the armrest position, gauge readability, shifter throws. Most of all, the seats suck, TOTALLY!!!!! My ass never hurt as all my hours on the road in my '02 WRX. Even from my travel from Oregon to Texas that 1k+ miles, doing 6-10 hour stints of travel my ass never even ached. I'm glad I never bought the Z, even as much as I admire it.

The WRX is the perfect car, although I've though about the Z.

I can't setting for anything else then a rumble and a turbo.

my wrx didn't come with the automatic penor sucker option, so alas, not the perfect car.


it also does not make 1,000,000 horsepower on hopes and dreams alone. , so again, not the perfect car.

Mine did, but she kept bumping the shifter out of gear when she leaned over the center console.

Ah, I see. Well, I got the attachment about three days before the wrx, so it might as well have come with it.

I'm curious to see how the 370z stacks up.
