ummmm. no.

I don't agree with color changes, and there are very few Z32's that look good in gold

just my $0.02, take it as you will

I think gold on a car looks fugly no matter what. I have yet to see a good looking car that's gold because it's gold. I mean the top cars kinda pull it off but that's only because I know in my head that they pack other things. If it was me, no. especially if your paint looks good already.

Like everyone said gold on a Z will look funny. Gold is just one of those colors that dont look good on a car. I would stick with what you got, if it aont broke then dont try to fix it. My 2cents

But that Z is really clean other than being gold. Those rims look very nice on a Z. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice Z, I just think the gold absolutely kills it, just my opinion.
