Well its over,

My Z is no longer 'my' Z

I have done the deal and next Thursday I deliver it to its new owner, It will be our final drive together.

I would like to thank Nissan for the best 4.5 years of car ownership I have ever had.

I will never own another car that made me feel the way my Z did.

Thanks to all on here for the fun on the forum and on days out, and all the help and advice I have recieved off the members and traders on here.

So this is interesting.

 

I bought Miles's car around 18 months ago. Thought I'd check the 350z forums to see if I could find anything and hey presto.

 

I'll upload a few more pictures later but this is how she's stands ATM. Just had the wheels freshly powdered and a full paint correction detail.

Hi there Tyler.  Well done for finding us!

 

I remember that car - it was a stunner then and still is by the looks of it.  I went on a CAT driver training day with Myles :)

 

I think I'm right in saying he has some uprated suspension bits, but I'm not sure what...

Thanks all, I've looked after her over the last year.

 

Few upgrades I've spotted in the engine bay are:

Fujita airintake

Stillen Engine Damper

Motordyen Plenum Spacer

 

It's also got 

 

06 tail lights

Nissan front and Rear splash guards

Celica spoiler

19" 5zigen ZR+520

Scorpion Exhaust.

 

From what I can see. 

 

I'm not sure on the suspension as I've not really taken a look but it's pretty low. I put that down to the splitter thought.

 

Next up is a service and front bumper/splitter respray.  

 

I'll get a thread going sometime soon.

Hi Tyler. :welcometonissansportz:

 

You (and the car) definitely need your own thread. Car detailing looks brilliant! Are you close enough to come and show it off at Mod day (you don't have to do anything - apart from eat breakfast!)

Its at Chobham in Surrey (just off M25) on Sat 21st Feb. Thread is here: http://forums.nissan...-february-2015/

 

It's at the Chilli's house (Sarah, our club secretary) and apart from serving up a great breakfast they have plenty of parking, tea and biscuits. Good place to chat to like minded owners, compare cars, checkout others Mods. Just a nice relaxed session - stay all day or just as long as you want.

That's a shame, I'm away from the 20th until the 22nd.

 

I'll keep any eye out for the next one which hopefully I can attend.

I am going to put another up at the last weekend in March, probably with a chips away guy in site. Still in the planning at the moment. Hopefully you can make that one. :)

I guess to close of the complete loop, I have now listed the car for sale, as my house purchase now takes president :( 

 

Sad times, but I've had a wicked 5 years of ownership
