Is it new? A lot of car companies have free tow services and roadside assistance for the first couple years you own a new vehicle.

Call a locksmith or go to the dealership and pay the $100+ for a spare key...both are less then a new window.

Are you a AAA member?

I get free lockout service...anywhere in the US, within 15 minutes...

In the van it's a simple matter of jamming a rubber triangle into the door jamb, gives it enough seperation to drop a hook down and pull the door handle. Or there are little inflatable rubber bags that I've seen do the same thing. I don't know if you can do that on the Z, but trying it would be cheaper than getting a window replaced...

Some of the newer side windows have that security etching crap in them too, it makes them more expensive than a regular window:(

slim jim wont work on the z, they are funky. call a locksmith and pay them to do it, assuming it can be done, im not even sure it can on these cars.

not to my knowledge... with the electric release on the trunk lid you would probably end up damaging something trying to jimmy it. not only that, but that wouldnt get you anywhere, you would need a very small, very flexible asian to go through the hatch, around the strut bar, and into the passenger area lol.

try a locksmith, they might be able to get in there. at the very least they could pry the glass back from the sill and poke the lock button with a stick.

Get you a wedge and pry the window back enough to slide a coat hanger and press the unlock button...

If it's still under b2b warranty or certified pre-owned, then you have lockout service. 1-800-NISSAN-1. They'll send someone out to do it pretty quickly. You also have 24-hour road side assistance.

either get a locksmith to do it, or just learn how to pick locks. seriously, lock picking is not very hard, i learned how to do it in a few days of practice and it's helped me out a number of times to get into my house.

if you can learn how to pick locks within a few days, why is it still too dificult to remember to take your keys with you when you leave?

Take a plastic wedge and jam it between the door and the body. Get a flexible rod (insulated with a rubber/plastic and poke at the lock. Or make a 90 deg bend in it and trip the lock.

Had to do it millions of times. Easiest way on cars imo.

guys, i highly doubt his keys have been in the car for a week now...

also, there are alot of replies from people who dont take into account the anatomy of a 350Z

Well, I would not try to pry through the window on a 350. They have a motor that controls window height to create a firm seal when the door shuts. It is a system that is expensive to replace. I used to sell them and I had a customer **** his up and he was pissed.

Just call Nissan's roadside service if you bought it new.

Seeing as how they have not window frame to speak of, I'd say wedge back the window, and use something to hit the unlock button. But I'm drunk, what do I know?

obviously dont know how a 350 is put together, or how to check post dates...
