2007 350z 3.5 V6

The only exterior change to the 2007 350Z may be subtle--a new hood with a slight center bulge--but there are big changes under that hood. Power is increased to 306 horsepower, a modest six-hp bump for manual-transmission Zs and 19 for automatics, but Nissan claims that 80 percent of the Z's prolific 3.5-liter VQ engine has been changed. This is the same update--and the same engine--that powers the Infiniti G35 sedan. The changes were extensive enough that Nissan renamed its celebrated V-6 "VQ35HR" (just rolls off the tongue, eh?). HR stands for "high-revving," reflecting the higher redline for the manual-transmission model, which increases from 7000 rpm to 7500. (The less-fortunate driver of an automatic 350Z can only rev to 6600 rpm, as with the previous engine.).

Nissan 370z Roadster

Less than a year after the introduction of the all-new 2009 Nissan 370Z Coupe - a vehicle that reset the bar for affordable sports car design and performance - comes its dramatic new stablemate, the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster.  The seductively styled Roadster offers everything the hardtop Coupe does - and more.  As in more classic open-air sports car driving excitement.  More sun, moon and stars.  And more refinement than any Z convertible that has ever come before - including a standard automatic latching power top and Nissan Intelligent.  Also offered are an array of technology and convenience features, including the first-ever Z Roadster-available heating and cooling ventilated net seats, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, satellite radio and advanced Nissan Navigation System.  The 2010 370Z Roadster is scheduled to go on sale at Nissan retailers nationwide in late summer.
Your Nissan 350Z or 370Z isn't just the average car down the street. They are exceptional machines and earn the respect and adoration of their owners. You don't want to risk the integrity of your vehicle with some shoddy aftermarket parts by some shady company. So, when you want to repair or customize your vehicle, you could run into problems getting parts. Buying from the dealer is expensive and a lot of times they don't carry the parts in stock. Some aftermarket products might not be available through them. Ordering from Japan can take a long time and be expensive in regards to shipping. The local parts store probably doesn't stock everything you need.
