what should i do?
Hey guys i was thinking about tading in my celi for an 03 350z. I found a couple online i might wanna get but its on ebay. Do you guys think i should go for ebay cars if they are from the dealer not a private sale and also have mfg warranty? what do you guys think?

Make sure they got a warranty. My ex bought her '95 Eclipse GST off of ebay. The engine was supposedly built for the aftermarket turbo they put on. The dealer was full of crap, they didnt get the warranty and have spent $3+ G's on a new engine. Just make sure you get the warranty.

yeah i mean the car is an 03 with like 15k miles on it and still have the mfg warranty. Again it is from a dealership not a private seller.

I would say go for it if it is a dealer. Make sure the warranty transfers to you. And check the bbb for anything on that dealership.

Yes check the vins, carfax, make sure warrenty is all good from dealer, get the car inspected by a reputable mechanic and if all goes definitely go for it! Which trim btw?

Yeah, that's my advice too. Before you jump into a Z, be sure you know about all the problems the Z comes with. Especially the uneven tire wear. Be ready to have to buy new tires a lot.

Go here; a lot of people have had problems:
