Default Cousin got a new car

Just thought I'd share that the '07 350Z is pretty kick-***. I don't know if it was worth his AEM computer swapped, apexi exhaust, underdriven pulley'd, gutted 2004 celica gts though. But that 350z is pretty nice, leather seats, seat warmers, new vg motor putting out 306 to the flywheel, 18" wheels. He opted for the auto however because the 6-speed didn't feel all quite there. Anywho that was sum pretty stanky BS so here it is.

My co-worker has one. It's nice for what it is. i hate the blindspots, and the weight made it feel like it didnt have enough umphf. i like the suspension, but the bulkness of the car felt weird to me....I hate all these new "turtle" looking cars. Still a pretty car....at least he didn't buy the 2-door alitma.

i'd want a 350z just to buy overpriced NISMO parts to strap onto it (i'd put some nismo stickers on it too because if i'm going to pay that much then i'll show it off too)

and because nismo doesn't make parts for my old-*** 240

Nismo doesnt make parts for S13's?

I don't understand disliking a company for overpricing it's parts and then putting stickers on your car to support them..... Actually I dont understand that last post whatsoever.

I saw that on the news... the paper tags were still on the car and had like 26 days left before expiration. The kid only had the car 4 days before that stupid drag racing "accident".

There was an explorer that drove through a grocery store doing about 80 this week in houston also. The idiot was drag racing his EXPLORER and "lost control". Drag racing a stock explorer would generally mean he never had control to begin with.

I wish it were legal to shoot these ******* in the street.
