The Top Gear guys are at it again, they are testing out the new Z4 and the new 370Z. Jeremy Clarkson hated the previous Z4 so it makes you wonder what he thinks of this one. He has also always referred to the 350Z as a “Datsun”. On the old 350Z he complained that “how many times have you gone for 3rd and missed 5th?”

Well here he is driving two cars which he didn’t like the previous models of, lets see what he thinks now!
