With a new high-performance Nissan 350Z on the way, offered through the automaker’s NISMO performance division, we take a look at the most popular parts for the standard 350Z and its upmarket sibling, the Infiniti G35.
Between April 11-May 10, 350Z enthusiasts spent $601,282 on parts and accessories while their G35 counterparts shelled out $484,894 via online auction, according to data from Terapeak, a developer of market-focused research software that monitors online sales and auctions.
Exterior goods, lighting and lamps, and wheels and tires (in that order) proved the most popular category with 350Z fans, accounting for $62,491. Antennas, grilles, and wings and spoilers were the most sought-after exterior items, while headlight/taillight covers, xenon lamps, and taillights comprised the lighting category’s most coveted items. Wheels and tires accounted for more than 30 percent ($267,291) of the monthly total.
G35 enthusiasts also like their exterior goods, although in different order. Lighting and lamps was the most favored category, comprising $49,906 of the monthly total, with wheels and tires, and exterior accessories completing the top three categories.
Headlights, side markers and xenon lamps were the most purchased lighting components, while grilles, spoilers and wings, and body kits were the hottest exterior accessories. Wheels and tires nearly mirrored the popularity of those for the 350Z, accounting for $244,176 in sales.
