I dont think anyone is saying that the ZX is a crappy car.
it was a top tier (only surpassed by the Skyline) in the Nissan line up
but you are on a MB Forum
Im confident that if you go to a nissan forum, those members would be slanted as well.
Also- the Twin Turbo is totally different from a NA ZX.
if you can get your hands on a well maintained twin turbo ZX then get that
but I would prefer a 300ce over the NA ZX based on the strength of the steel
German cars of that era tend to fare better against corrosion than the Japanese counterparts.

this is my .02 from my experience with Acura Integras (owned 6) vs.Mercedes (owned 7)

but we are all car guys

Changed my mind, sold the ZX and bought the CE!

Only 133k miles!

Wise choice.

The 300 ZX is a disposable car. The 300CE is a lifetime car is well taken care of. And that 133k mile example you
posted the pictures of looks to well above average in condition.
