    Hi....does anyone know if there are any changes in the '07s from the '06s? I can't find any info for the '07 Zs online. Thanks, Sue

    hey car man,
    Could you please list the current money factor and residual for an 06 350z base model interlagos fire and side curtain airbags, 15k miles for two and three years (i don't know if its 24, 27, 36, or 39 months through nissan). I would also appreciate anything else that you think may help. Thanks.

  • Hey clat. Here's the information that you're looking for. Nissan Motor acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a base 2006 Nissan 350Z Coupe with 15,000 miles per year are .00285 and 56%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00285 and 47%. This money factor is actually available for any length lease.

  • Hoping I could get some info about the following situation. My thanks go out in advance...

    I'm 17 years old and am interested in driving an '06 350Z Touring Coupe. My parents have terrible credit and I know they will be declined for the lease.

    I currently have $20,000 from a trust fund that is currently deposited in my checking account. My thought is that I could, dealership permitting, pay the complete sum of a 36 month lease in cash as a "down payment" to combat the fact that all I have is cash. Does anyone know if this would be possible or has heard of anything like this?

    If not, is there a way to work around this? I have not been to any dealerships yet with this plan in mind. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, let's say that I do wind up paying the entire sum of the 36 month lease in one payment, or rather, as much of the down payment as possible, what figure am I looking to pay in total for the entire lease?

    I also have other money set aside for insurance and whatnot.

    ( This is my first step into the car-purchasing world, so please be thorough in explanation, sorry :confuse: )

    I'm specifically looking to get:

    2006 350Z Touring Coupe w/:
    6-spd manual
    side and curtain airbags
    carpeted floor mats
    carpeted trunk mat
    aluminum kick plate
    areodynamics package

    According to, Total Configured MSRP† $34,485

    Much appreciated,
  • Let's say there is a 48 month lease with 50 of 60k
    miles left for an '06 350Z GT Roadster?

    How can you tell what a good rate would be to take
    over the lease payments?


  • I was thinking about leasing a Grand Touring Roadster--39 months, 12000 miles, 0 down. Would it be better to wait a couple months for the 2007? I'm not going to buy at the end of the lease, so I'm not sure if payments will be much more if I wait or if a much better deal can be had on a 2006 once the 07 is out? What do you think? Thanks
  • That would be an easy choice for me --
    basically you are saying that you want to rent it for 3 yrs.

    Let's assume that its 40k base, and 20k for
    residual for the '07
    for the '06 let's say they knock it down to 36K and 18k

    Is the $2k difference really worth just saying you have
    an '07 -- which for a Z are virtually identical?

  • Hi jmatson266. Given the lack of lease support on the Nissan 350Z, all things being equal (namely the selling price), I would not be surprised if it was actually less expensive to lease a 2007 model when it comes out than it would be to lease a 2006 model because the '07 350Z will likely have higher residual values. This is all just speculation though because I don't believe that Nissan has published a lease program for the 2007 350Z yet. Which model ends up being cheaper will ultimately depend upon how much lower a selling price you are able to negotiate on a 2006 model when the '07s finally arrive at dealers.

  • Hello CarMan, first of all thanks for all the valuable help that you provide, Great Work!...Anyway, I am looking to lease a 2006 Nissan 350Z Touring. Per your advice I am not going to put any money down. I'd like to lease for 36 or 39 months, 15K miles per year. Could you please tell me around how much I should expect to pay a month for this vehicle?? Nissan's websites lists Base MSRP at $32,450. Also do I need to make sure that the car comes with a bumper to bumper warranty?? or does this come standard with all leases??.Hopefully it will be below $550. Please let me know, Thanks Again.

  • to add to my above post...I am looking for the coupe and manual transmission...thanks!

    I am really caught between a rock & a hard place. I was waiting for the right deal on an '06 GT Roadster. Found one, I think...Nismo plastic and exhaust, MSRP 43K, marked down to 38,900. Problem being, rumor has it '07 promises more horse and I'm a HP junkie. I know '07 will have larger selling price but I'm not sure if that will really affect a lease as you are only paying the residual each month. I've heard arguments for both sides and am thoroughly confused. I also want to get the lowest monthly payment possible, which would require a huge downpayment on a lease, and now I'm finding that that's not the smartest route; that I should buy. My credit took a nosedive last year and I have been pretty successful in rebuilding it, but I know my credit status will negatively affect the interest rate on a purchase, thus eating up a large downpayment anyway. HELP!!!!!

    Is this a good deal (from a Infiniti Dealership)? 2005 Nissan 350Z Roadster Touring w/ 13,293 miles for $25,897 - it's silverstone with black interior. What price I should offer?
  • dat2dat2 Posts: 242
    Sounds like a pretty good price. Just check the values on edmunds, if it's anywhere close to the trade-in price on edmunds then it's a great price. Check the rear tires before you buy it, if they are completely bald that's a clear indication of a lot of hard launches...though by that mileage they will have a lot of wear under normal conditions.
  • You're welcome and thank you for the kind words, Carlos . All leased vehicles come with their normal new vehicle bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. This car's lease payment will depend upon what sort of selling price you are able to negotiate on it. A base 2006 Nissan 350Z Touring Coupe has a spread of around $2,500 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. for now I will assume that you are going to be able to negotiate a $2,000 discount on this car. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2006 Nissan 350Z Touring Coupe with an MSRP of $32,450 and a selling price of $30,450 through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $533. The payment for an otherwise identical 39 month lease is $510.

  • Hi zeeya. Unfortunately, a higher selling price will definitely result in a higher lease payment. I haven't played with the numbers lately, but I suspect that it will be much less expensive to get a 2006 350Z than it will be to get a 2007 model. I can tell you exactly what the lease payments on the cars that you are interested in are going to be like if you provide me with their full MSRPs and approximate selling prices. You may be able to get an idea of how much you will have to pay for these cars right now by visiting the following discussion: "Nissan 350Z: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". Let me know what these prices are and I will crunch some numbers for you.

  • Thanks so much, that for sure will help tremendously in making mi decision! Again ...Thanks!
  • Hi all. I've decided to purchase a 350z grand touring coupe (black) in the '07 model. I saw the press release that they are out, but dealerships in So. Cali don't have them yet. Two questions b/c you guys seem so helpful:

    1) ANy idea when these dealerships will see them?

    2) I anticipate putting $4,500 down and doing a 3 year, 10K/year lease. What do you think a fair lease payment is on that based on A+ credit?

    Thanks guys!
