nissan 350z highly overrated

i got to drive a nissan 350z on a test drive the other day
has anyone drove one of these before?
i tell u what i think that the 3.5L v6 is very overrated.
when i drove it it really wasnt that fast
ive never seen a 1/4 mile time on one though
but i could feel every bump in that car
i mean the little bumps (cracks between concrete slabs)
these were very noticable

the seats were awesome though
and it could turn on a dime

i tell u what, i seem to like the balt better

( and thats not just because i have one )

if anyone had a different experience driving this car , or raced one let me know

Store manager has an '03 350Z, very nice car. He doesnt have the touring edition or anything, but indeed it does ride rougher than my Cobalt. I love the seats! The bolsters fit my fat-ass pretty good! Gearbox is very nice with quick short crisp shifts. Little bit too much resonance from the exhaust into the interior though. Overall, the 350Z is a nice car.

the base model runs like 13.8 1/4 mile. So a little faster.

It's not balls-to-the-wall fast, but it's sufficient. I think Nissan's banking more on it's good handling than anything else. Never been inside one, tho.
