Nissan 350Z Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I was wondering what the difference is between the 350Z and the Nismo, other than $10,000?

    Is this a good deal or would you expect the price to be lower?

    2005 350Z Roadster Touring Automatic
    6000 miles
    One owner

    Anyone bought a similar car recently for a lot less?

    I'm thinking about buying or leasing a 350z.

    What would you do and why?

    Which 350z would you get. I'm looking at the base. I'm not a racer but would like a sporty car.

    I am going to buy a 2007 Nissan Z coupe in black (basic Package)

    This is the initial price I got

    27144(invoice price) - 1500(rebate) = 25644 (plus tax and fees)

    I called another dealer and they are wiling to do close to

    25644-700 = 24944 (plus tax and fees)

    6.79% for 5 year

    good deal

    Thanks Car_man, you are absolutely, most definitely the best!
  •, my wife is about to turn 50. She says her Lexus ES330 is an old ladies car...she isn't getting another car like it again. She really wants a convertible. She also can't wait for the lease to expire...which is in 5 months. being a great husband, I listen to her and think...this girl has always sacrificed for the rest of us I need to get her what she wants...and deserves. So, I start looking around. I drop by the Nissan dealer and I see this solar orange Z roadster...that just happens to be an automatic.'s awesome and perfect for my wife.

    So, I drag her out to the dealer the next day and she drives it. Before she gets out of the parking lot she's crying. She said "Oh my God, this care is's what I've always wanted!" She was very emotional. I looked over at her and all I could think of can I get her this car?

    So...I'm working a deal with the dealer but he isn't budging much. I guess I know why...the solar orange is rare...probably rarer with an automatic.

    I've only gotten him to come down a couple grand...what should I do, wait him out? It's almost winter here in Indianapolis. What is a fair price to pay? It is a roadster grand touring automatic, solar orange.

    I'd probably get it if they would just come down a couple grand more.

    '07 or '08?

    If an '08, I'm not sure where all that money is going to come from. There is only a $3k spread between MSRP and invoice.

    I think $2500 off on an '08 so early in the model year would be a good deal.

  • I recently settled for a 2006 Touring coupe in Pikes Peak Pearl color with 13,200 miles for $24,500. Is this a good deal or did I overpay? Car looks good exterior and interior wise. Test drive went well. Clear title and carfax. Thanks for the help

  • Looking to lease an 07 leftover 31,800 including destination in NC. What should I be looking at for a 36month lease with 0 down? Plus I have heard that Z's arent good to lease, but I dont want to purchase one with the 09 coming out. I figure by late '10 they show have all the bugs worked out of them.
  • Hey guys,

    I just wanted to get your opinion. I recently bought a 2004 Enthusiasts with 39K for 18.5k out the door. Did i get a good deal?

    Would appreciate your opinions.
  • Hi codek. If I was in the market for a Nissan 350Z and I wanted to get a 2008 model, I probably would pay cash for or finance it. Nissan is not currently providing any lease support on the '08 350Z. On the other hand, if I was willing to go with a leftover 2007 model I would consider leasing it. Nissan is currently providing a special $1,000 cash incentive on leases of the '07 350Z Coupe and $2,500 on leases of the '07 350Z Convertible through its captive finance company. If you finance this car through an independent bank or pay cash for it, you cannot take advantage of this incentive.

  • Hi fabcas311. I am sorry to say that it is usually fairly expensive to get out of leases well before their scheduled end dates. In order to do so, you need to purchase the vehicle that you are currently leasing from the bank that you are leasing it through. It often turns out that it costs more to do so than your vehicle is worth on the open market. Furthermore, many banks expect consumers who end their leases early to still make all, or at least the depreciation portion of their remaining lease payments. As you can see, this can get very expensive.

    You can determine approximately how much it will cost you to get out of your current lease by comparing its purchase price to its value on the open market at this time. You should place a call to the bank that you are leasing your vehicle through to find out its exact price. Once you know exactly how much money it is going to cost you to buy your leased vehicle you need to compare it to its current value on the open market. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may want to stop by the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values". Don't forget to check to see if you are still on the hook for your remaining lease payments. The difference between your leased vehicle's current value and how much it will cost you to buy it plus any remaining lease payments that you are obligated to pay will equal the cost of getting out of your lease right now. You may find that you are better off waiting until you are closer to the scheduled end of your lease to get another new vehicle.

  • Greetings talk2marvin. Is $31,800 this car's MSRP or is it the selling price that you were quoted for it? You definitely should be able to negotiate a pretty good discount on this car right now. Not only are dealers going to want to unload their leftover 2007 models to make room for new '08s, but Nissan is actually providing a cash incentive on leases of it. Specifically, it is providing a total of $1,500 ($1,000 lease cash + $500 bonus cash) on leases of the 2007 350Z Coupe and $2,500 on the '07 350Z Convertible through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.

    Let me know what this car's MSRP and approximate selling price are, or at least its MSRP and dealer invoice price, and I will be happy to use Nissan's current lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be.

    sounds good to me, but out-the-door means nothing to me since I don't know what your taxes were, motor vehicle fees, etc.
    The actual purchase price minus all the other stuff would be easier to judge.

  • MSRP: $33,825
    Invoice: $31,379
    Dont know if I should only do either 15K for 2 years or 12 for 3 years since the bumper to bumper is 36K miles? Opinions car_man?
  • Hi Car Man..Maybe you can kill two birds with this

    I am in the exact same boat and I have exactly the same Question as talk2marvin...I'm Looking to lease a 2007 350Z Coupe - Touring with an MSRP of 33,840. and an Invoice of 31,291. I don't want to put money down If I can help it.
    I might caveat this by saying this will be my first time to really research a car purchase like never before, and am hoping that I can get into a sweet deal on a great car. Hope you can bear with my barrage of questions.

    It seems to be my assumption based on what I have read, that I want to negotiate the sales price of the car before I work out the lease numbers. Is this the right thing to do? This seems to be nearly impossible, the way dealers load their questioning with the typical barrage of, "Where do you want to be?"..etc....

    Other factors and questions to this are:
    1. My local dealer does not have the model I want, being the end of the year.
    So do I:
    A. Go to a dealer with current stock of what I want.
    B. Ask him to "Go Get" me what I want.
    (Will he charge me for this / Sneek in an additional destination charge? or should this be his Cost of Doing Business to gain me as a customer or lose the sale?)

    2. Will it help or Hurt me in telling/showing my salesman a printed TMV form from edmunds or elsewhere. What would/ should his response be to that?

    3. What to do about taxes? Should they be worked into the Lease or should I pay them upfront. Some dealers are asking me what do I want to do in terms of taxes.

    4. I am comming out of a lease in Jan from another manufacturer...So far Nissan dealers have not asked to "pick-up" my final two payments as others dealers have done.
    Is there a way to "not get stuck" paying two lease payments in order to jump on the chance to get an '07 leftover deal.

    5. Does dealer Invoice truly mean that is what the dealer paid for the vehicle?
    How does this question apply to the smaller dealers vs. the SUPER MEGA AUTOMALLS?

    6. Is it Unreasonable to ask to pay invoice price or "close to it" or even "below it" on an '07 leftover in Dec '07 on a "non-luxury brand"?

    7. Should I insist on knowing the Money Factor for the lease?

    Thanks sooo much...hope that wasn't too lengthy.. ;)
  • Can anyone answer the last two Posts :confuse:
  • Also some more information now on this car. Lease is for 12,000 Mi/yr
    MSRP of 35,510 Invoice of 32,481 as it has the 18" chome wheels.

    Looking to see what the best deal should be on this lease.
    what is the Current Money factor and Residual Value on this car.
    for 36 or 48 months based on 12,000 mi/yr

    The advertised lease deal is not a deal at all but more like an example...I have already gotten better pricing without haggling yet.
