The early electric steering is problematic - it was fixed (or at least improved?) in '06, when the car received a light facelift overall.

If you hate it on the new 3, I can't imagine you'll like...

The Conti Comfort Kit is probably a better option than the BMW kit. Has a simpler method of connecting the goo bottle. Tire Rack carries it.

350z is a dog with fleas, for a boatload of reasons. The sticky steering on the early Z4 is a valid concern though. Solution: M car. :)

57. I had just turned 50 when I bought mine in August 2007.

My first "cool" car was when I bought my boss's '73 240Z in '77. I was only 19 and the car was relatively recent, so it was a nice snag....

The Conti Comfort Kit is not the same one as BMW provides (I have one of each) but is an excellent kit and is much easier to use.

As for tires - those can't be Super Sports at that price, I...

I'd go with Conti DW's, and Conti also makes a goo & pump kit that Tire Rack sells.

Good timing for me to chime in. I had PSS's on both my cars until yesterday. I got really lousy wear (20k miles of DD commute-type duty) on the rears on my ZHP, so I replaced them with DW's, and had...

At $35k, yes it will depreciate some - but overall these cars' values flattened out years ago. I had my '07 Coupe for sale in '09, with about 24k miles for $29.5k, and couldn't move it. Today at 55k...

It was AutoNation who had it for sale in Texas, obviously Avazi scooped it up from them. Avazi is just like Enthusiast Auto in Cincy - they scoop up the peaches and resell at greatly inflated prices....

I just Googled the VIN of the $44k car (5UMDU93426LL93365)- shows that it had been listed for sale 4 days ago in Texas, with 15 less miles, for $35,991 - which sounds like another dealer's number,...
