    Hi everyone, had my 2018 370 Nismo a little over a month now, wanted a Z for years and decided that there's no time like the present. thought I might as well join the club while I'm at it.

    Nice, welcome, I do miss my 370 from time to time, was a 2010 model, nearly chopped it in for a facelifted Nismo but instead went German :leaving:

    Welcome to the club!

    The nismo styling really sets the car off

    I had a 2009 370Z did 80k miles in it and sold it for about £12.5k. It was a bargain compared to the classic Zs. I found the wheels dominated the driving i.e. scared of kerbs, noise, scrubbing on full lock and lack of grip on slippery surfaces.

    I find when on somewhat worn road surfaces it has a tendency to tramline a bit, was quite alarming at first before I got used to the handling, especially considering the power jump from my previous car (1.3l Yaris). I'm glad I waited until after my advanced driving course to buy it lol

    Hi and welcome Tom. Nice mota :)

    They can tramline but I'd check the alignment. Also, different tyres make quite a difference.

    The original Bridgestones would scrub on lock when cold.

    I've run several sets of Vreds which I rate, but I pushed the boat out and got Michelins last time around.
