Everything done to this car was done to the max and no expense has been spared. To start off with, it is the very top trim level that was available in 2005, the Grand Touring, which came with a price tag just under $40,000. It has the 6 speed manual transmission, and has the Vortech Supercharger kit installed. It was purchased new in October of 2006 and has had a Vortech Supercharger kit professionally installed to boost the horsepower. The kit was installed at VX Motorsports and was Dyno-Tuned at Excessive Autosports in Sioux Falls, SD. This kit made 336 hp on 8 psi of boost on when it was dynotuned compared to the stock 235 wheel hp. The kit itself cost just over $6,000 without the installation. It is the complete kit which includes a spearco front mount intercooler, piggyback ecu from split second tuning, and Vortech fuel pressure regulator. Beyond the kit I have added a Innovative Motorsports Wideband Air to fuel ratio gauge which can be hooked up to your laptop for datalogging($600), and a boost gauge which are both professionally mounted on the A-pillar in a dual gauge pod that looks just like stock. Everyone who looks at the car can't believe that the supercharger and gauges were added to the car because the install is so clean. The seats are the tan leather ventilated racing seats(awesome) which circulate air through the mesh of the seat when you are driving down the road to keep you cool. They are also heated to keep you warm in the fall and winter months should you choose to drive it then. This car has never been driven in winter. The Power Soft-top operates perfectly and goes up and down with ease. The built in cover lifts up when the top goes down and closes to protect the soft-top when it is down. This car is 100% reliable and can be driven exactly as though the supercharger came on the car stock. The Grand Touring came stock with Brembo brakes and cross drilled and slotted rotors. I am running Green Stuff performance brake pads. The calipers are painted color matched to the seats from the factory. The wheels currently on the car are only two months old. They are 19" staggered Konig Crosshair wheels with wider than stock 275/35/19 rear tires and 245/35/19 front tires. They still have the Tire Pressure Monitoring System which displays the tire pressure for each wheel on a display screen inside the car. They sit perfectly on the car and give it a really aggressive stance. The wheels and tires are like brand new, no curb check or any defects. I spent around $1500 on the wheels and tires. There are absolutely no rock chips on the fron end, as the car had a invisible adhesive bra installed on the front end from the dealer when it was new. The car has only 19K miles on it and is under warranty full warranty until October of this year, and comes with the remainder of the factory 5 year 60,000 mile Nissan warranty. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the car mechanically and I guarantee the install of the supercharger to be clean as a whistle. Just this month I replaced the main drive belt and the supercharger cog belt. The car has always had Mobil 1 10w50 motor oil ran in it. This kit is proven to be just as reliable as a stock 350Z at the 8 psi boost level and has been taken care of. I have all the manuals and documentation for everything that has been done to the car. I currenlty have test pipes on the car in the place of the cats. I do still have all the parts though that were removed to install the supercharger kit and can put the cats back in. This car is in excellent shape both inside and mechanically. I do want to point out one thing that is wrong with the car cosmetically. Someone did key the drivers rear fender of the car. It has been professionally touched up and looks good, but should be noted. This car has never been in an accident and I do have a carfax showing the car has been owned its entire life in South Dakota. Please remember this car was sold new in October of 2006. So it is less than 3 years old and has only 19K miles on it. The current bank NADA retail value is 23,375, and that is without any of the add-ons like the wheels and tires that have been added on or the $6,000 for the supercharger. Serious inquiries on the car only, no joy-riders. Please feel free to email me with questions. As for offers, I am open to reasonable offers, show me you're serious about buying and I'll show you I'm serious about selling, you won't be disappointed in this car. The car has recently been professionally detailed and looks amazing. I have owned a C5(99) Corvette, a 05 350Z coupe, a supercharged Miata, a turbocharged miata, a Nissan 240SX, and a Lexus IS300, and this car handles and performs better than all of them. ***I hold the title to this car in my name free and clear, it is completely paid for and has never had a lien on it. I am open to trades*** When this car is sold I plan to purchase a C6(2005-2010) Corvette, possibly a Z06 and would consider trading my car and some cash for one. I would also consider any other trades.

That wall of text will give people epilepsy

That's fantastic that you owned such an expensive list of cars, but guess what...the title of this section says: Cars for sale/trade List cars for sale here. Buy, trade or sell your Mazda Miata.
Try craigslist.

so this car handles and performs better then a c5? really? i have a 280whp 2007 350z base model w/ suspension, nismo diff, etc that did 1:28s @ streets of willow on 140tw tires and considering my shitty driving and first time on that particular track, im sure i could manage 1:26s second time around. now... stock c5 vettes do faster lap times then that. your car is a convertible and you are running stock suspension which understeers like a ************. you can NOT claim that your car handles and performs better then your vette did unless your vette was fucked.

Sorry for being over-informative, but I'm not selling a mini-van here, it is a modified car. I'd imagine if someone was legitamitely interested in this type of car they would appreciate the information, and from my experience I've found being informative I can avoid stupid questions from buyers who wouldn't understand the answers anyways. As for knowing how to sell a car I'm pretty sure I've owned and sold far more cars than you could dream of. Thanks for your opinion.

As for the better handling than a C5 corvette, you read that right. I'm not sure what is wrong with your 350Z, and can't compare the two on a track, but I'd love to show your a Vette a thing or two on the AutoX course.

As fore the random ------ comment...nope...Another E-thug on the loose I guess. Have fun beating off to your own breasts in the mirror tonight

there is nothing wrong with my z. i bought it brand new and re-did my suspension 2 times to get it right. oem suspension SUCKS *****. my first suspension was decent and my current setup is pretty nice although its definitely not ultimate. even with my current suspension (im pulling almost a full lateral G on street tires) C5 outhandles this car.

I 100% disagree, I've owned both and the 350Z suspension is better than 90% of factory suspensions. Even with wider stock tires the C5 corvette still doesn't do as well on the skid pad as you'd expect it too. The c5 does a .92G, the 350Z .91G with a lot narrower and less expensive tires. Before you try to say tires don't make a difference, my Cobalt SS did a .90G on the Pirelli Rosso tires and a .86G on a set of Nittos.

I guess we just have different opinions, I suppose that is why there are a lot of different car forums. The guys on the s2000 forums think they've found the best cars ever, the guys on the 911 forums think they have. To each there own I guess

To the rest of you, if you don't want to read the description, then don't. I'm not sure what happened to this site, but I've been turboing miata and been a member on here before most of you could tell a difference between a Miata and a Mercury Capri. I' posted my 350Z on here thinking that by chance someone on here would be interested in it. I've owned 8 Miatas, a couple of them nicer than 90% of the cars on here, but I'm a car guy and enjoy and appreciate the finer points of a lot of different vehicles. My wife's mini-van could probably out-perform 3/4's of the cars of the people who have posted on this thread, and she could probably out drive you all too. Keep flaming my post.
