Hey guys, I have avoided the boards for a while now, but its time to come back,well, I totoled the mkiv, it hurts so much to say. The day before I was moving down I was on the highway on my way home and spun the tires at like 60 mph, then proceeded to go through a highway sign sideways, anyway the car is beyond totaled. Cold day, single turbo, punching the gas= dead supra. I havent wanted to have anything to do with a supra for a while, everytime I see an mkiv on the highway in south fl, welll it hurts. Anyway, I just bought a 2004 350z, it is nothing like the supra, but definitely a great car to drive. It would still be nice to hang with you local mkiv guys when you get together, i still have the supra in my heart :) Anyway, much props to whoever has a silver supra with HRE's, I saw it in southbeach a month or so ago around collins ave, one of the most beautiful supras I have ever seen.

Yea, I love the supra but getting another 20000+ loan for a 10 year old car with no warranty is something I cant risk right now. Its one of the reasons I am in the position I am in right now, the value of a supra will never be reembered by an insurance company. So far so good though, the 350z is by far one of the best handling vehicles I have ever driven, great N/A motor as well.

I think 305350z would be a suitable name, can you change it for me?

wtf? how much did they give you for it?.... I thought you were supposed to get market value for your car... not KBB.

That's what I've read in other threads .... *shrugs*

Sounds like you saw Ron's car. His is completely badass.

Sorry to hear of the loss. Enjoy the 350Z.

Well I bought and sold 2 Supra's. A white 95 NA, and a green 97 TT. I regretted selling them. It go so bad when I found a CLEAN 98 quicksilver, on autotrader I jumped on a plane and flew to Texas from Orlando. Drove it back. 350Z's are so common already. I have tried to like them but the MKIV Supra is still the holy grail of imports. The NA is much lighter and quicker off the line over the TT turbo lag. Of course it dies off where the turbo takes off. I'm more into looks than speed now. Too many unmarked cop cars AND trucks in O'town.

Sorry to burst you bubble but it has affected the 04 and 05 models. Read Zcar.com and my350z.com. Nissan will only acknowledge the problem on the '03s. Since there was no change in the suspension of this vehicle after the '03 model, the problem continues.

Go with the G35. I have driven both and they dont compare. G35 rides and sounds 20x nice and is much much more luxiours inside.

Ah well. My '04.5 has 10k miles on it and the tires are perfect. :cool:

Wish you the best of luck with the car. I have a 1994 300ZX and I absolutely love it. I love the Supra too, but would take too much of a loss selling my Z for a Supra
