It's not terribly advisable to drop 30k on a 2 seater sports car with a stiff suspension either. It's not a great daily driver or utility car (wtf are you going to fit in there? a briefcase?) or something he's likely going to want to be driving for 5+ years.
That's exactly why I decided to buy the G35 over the 350Z. Same price range, but with the G35 you get 4 seats, luxury, much better interior and much better service (Infiniti over Nissan). Believe it or not, a Nissan salesman told me to "f__k off" (in those words) when I told him I had decided to go with the G35 :-)
