Dan's Nissan 350Z Roadster

Well this is my 350z roadster which I aquired in 2012, not a car you see much of in roadster form so thats why wanted to buy it. Actually, it goes deeper than that.

The main reason I bought this model is because I fell ill in 2008, suffering with epilepsy which meant I had my license revoked for 3 years, so when I got my license back I decided that I would treat myself to a powerful soft top. Why the 350Z? That reason is because the 350z is different, friends didnt have one and I like to be different to every one else.

You hardly see any 350z roadsters around no matter where you drive in the UK. So one day I handed over the money and bought the car.

Now, the intention was to keep the car standard, but that was never going to happen with me as I've always been into cars as well as modifying them and every car I have owned has been modified one way or another. Believe me I have had a few cars, all had mods of some sort or other. I decided to join the 350z owners club which is a great for help and conversation about the 350Z. Lets just say my 'standard' ideas went out the window and my bank account was feeling very empty, in a positive way.

After attending a few car meets across the UK, I got the idea of owning a 400bhp N/A 350z Roadster. I was told it cant be done but I have never been one to like that word cant, which made me more determined. I have been spending a lot more money and time on the car than I thought I would, I'm not quite at 400bhp but I'm not far off either. One of the first thing I did was having the car 'de-cat' and OMG, the noise of the exhaust is crazy, every where I go I get asked about the exhaust note, people giving me good comments and they say it sounds awesome, I would have to agree.


The car was seen by my friends and family as the usual hairdresser car and all the jokes came out, I'm cool with that, I think any hairdresser would love to be seen and heard in my Roadster.

Its a car to me that when you've had a crap day or just want to unwind, you jump in, fire up the beautiful V6 vq35de engine, pierce your ear drums, scare the neighbours cat and annoys the whole street with, but its worth it. Totally worth it. Summertime, who wouldn't want to drop the roof, feel the sun and hear the cars engine and exhaust note when you open the throttle.
