Hmmm, is that really real... :| damn.. :roll: guys take a note of this point.. i didnt know tat.... good info masabgt.... thanx.. :o

Get the OBD2 scanner to do the job... if u wanna be so sure... check in the showroom and then an outside source.. compare the data from both the place... u will know wat ur dealing with.. and when ur checkin the car in an external garage... raise the car and get and expert to check for chassis damage....
And listen buddy, listen of sounds from the car....

Other than that.. the car is reliable and cool to own.... and the price looks pretty inviting too.... good luck....

There have been repeatedly 350Z's reported that have water damage due to the hurricanes that hit US.. And those are usually cheaper priced.

68k ... Looks a bit cheap to me, don't forget this was a 140k car. They are good cars, they're the next big tuning platform, but I guess the small diseases will start to turn up now.. and you might need to replace somethings...

what's the mileage?

Hey dude, at that price, you have to make sure that there's nothing wrong with it. Have it tested and scrutinized before you go, make sure everything is fine with it.

If it hapens to be in great condition then dude, be sure to go for it, because a manual 350Z is quiet hard to find.

I would consider it especially if the mileage was sub-80,000 KMS. Japanese cars don't have a hard time coping with mileage anyway. they just work and work and work.

As far as maintainance costs, i can tell you that changing the brembo brakepads costs 800 Dhs. People i've spoken to about it haven't complainbed about its high maintenance nature so i don't think it's that bad.
