i love the 350z for its Price........CAYMEN for its looks....... & AUDI RS4 for its power....... dont know which one i sud dream or wait for.....i hope your suggestion will help.


problems for me

1. Nissan 350z importers say its not allowed to import this car coz its less than $40000 mark & some homogletion prob???

2. Porsche Caymen its stiil not there & less power than 350z plus may go a bit high on my budget???

3. Audi RS4(2006) nothing wrong but it is priced too high plus payin another 104% import duty will leave me wid a car wid out any money to buy petrol.......lol

Go for an M3, cheaper than Cayman and best bang for the buck.

I voted for the Cayman, the only reason being the brand, like mclaren said its best as stock, if u want to mod your car then 350Z is the choice. RS4 is awesome but somehow audi doesnt demand that amount of respect in india. I guess cayman makes the best option out of the three if youre gonna run it on delhi roads, moreover it will be available officially! so no hassles with servicability.

2nd option 350Z or better still the Infiniti G35 Coupe.

If you are looking to get one in delhi, hands down the cayman..it would be exotic enough and fast enough for the roads..looks hot, is fast and has the biggest plus of being a porsche..

I would have picked cayman out of all the 3..

you know how much is it running you? Spoke to bagla yet?

Nissan 350Z - Too Ricerish IMO and not exotic enough
Porsche Cayman - Too ugly, but looking at badge-snob India, the best headturner
Audi RS4 - Perfect blend of comfort and speed, but again for badge-snob India, the most waste of money in manys eyes

For that price range, you should go for a Boxster. It'll be better to look at, much more fun since its open top, and there is hardly any real world performance difference from the Cayman. I mean what are you really going to notice when the Boxster is said to be amongst the top ten handlers.

Hi. I personally think you have picked 3 completley different cars that are no where near in the same category which makes choosin one out of them very hard. If price is not a matter then avoid the 350z. My personal pick is the RS4. It might not handle as well as the cayman but the power and practiacality of it is a great advantage. Having had a 350z its has a very low quality interior as compared to the other two and it is a bit on the heavy side.

How abt something even unique : The Pontiac GTO
But the problem is same as 350Z , its less than $40000

U can still opt for the base Corvette at $45000

Finally , if U are willing to spend INR 60 laks on the Cayman , I would strongly suggest to spend 5 laks more and get a ZO6

My vote goes to Porsche CaymanS simply for its brillant looks and good performance..

And like most of u'all said, 350Z when it comes to tuning

Here i like all the three cars, for the brand i would choose the cayman and as others said its best as stock.
The best VFM is no dobut 350Z and great for mods.
But i voted for the RS4 its got great looks, way better than the other two. Its got great power and performance too. Though the Audi brand may not be as well recognized as a Porsche, its still better than a Nissan.

dipen: Note, Z06 and GTO are both LHD which means they cannot be imported into india.
