I quite like the side decals :thumbs:

 

It's interesting what you've done with the A pillars too - that's a new one on me :)

The A pillars are easily my favourite mod so far on the car :D

And finally I found a hidden mod Sunday morning (pic below). The joyous Shipping spacers that the PDI "technician" decided to leave on the car for me. My technician, and many others it would seem, cannot read.
I will however tell the other 2 guys that bought Nismo's from the same dealership as me, at the same time. They will no doubt also have them.


So, coming back to the above....

I spoke with the other 2 Nismo owners and advised they get their cars checked over due to the balls-up on mine. Luckily both of their cars were fine, so no drama for them. Word of the problem got back to the PDI technician, and when realising the **** up he said 'Well....I definitely remember removing the shipping spacers from 2 of the 3 Nismo's we prepared' !! So, I was just unlucky to have the third one that didn't have spacers removed. But I mean.....seriously! If you were fully aware that you left spacers on 33% of the Nismo's you prepared you would raise it and get them checked?!
But, then I'm giving the guy too much credit I think as it's the same guy that screwed the number plate into my front bumper!

Aaaanyway......the car was down at Nissan last Thursday for the shipping spacers to be finally removed. Lis took the car down for me and was all sorted the same day. Car sits a lot nicer now on the front smile.gif

The next day I was driving to work enjoying the new suspension when the rear tyre 'popped'. I've had punctures in the past but this was pretty impressive! Was coming over a roundabout when all of a sudden there was a loud pop from the rear of the car followed by a flapping. Pulled over and found this in the tyre....

Looks to be a small piece of steel bar, it was maybe 10-12mm diameter, which I guess explains the sudden pop and loss of pressure!
With such a large hole in the tyre the can of gunk would be no use. So I started making some calls and no-one had a tyre same day...and I wasn't too keen on leaving the Nismo on the side of the road for a few days!
Fast forward 4 hours (!!!) and the recovery truck finally arrives to take me up to Nissan. All 4 tyres have barely covered 4k miles so I decided to only swap out the one tyre, as opposed to swapping the axle which I usually would do. These are my tyre options, note this is Friday afternoon:

Nissan: Can get a tyre in for me next Friday at £265+VAT
Me Online: Can get a tyre delivered by next Thursday at £210
Me Locally: Can get a tyre delivered NEXT DAY for £240 (not sure why Nissan couldn't do this)

So I went for option 3, half expecting to have the car back Saturday PM, possibly Monday AM. But in the end they didn't swap the tyre over until Tuesday PM lol.gif

After a joyous 4 days in a Vauxhall Mokka hire car I finally have Gizmo back grin.gif

Unbelievable!  I'm pleased you've got those things sorted out.

 

Again, dealers and manufacturers have got to take a good look at themselves on many fronts.  In particular, drivers have got to start voicing their rejections to just having Gunk as a flat tyre fix.  Some might argue that not carrying around a spare wheel saves a few kilos, and reduces emissions a bit in theory, but with the increasing amount of debris on and potholes in our roads it's very easy to be left up a certain creek without a certain instrument.  :bang:

Long overdue update on my time with the Nismo. Now owned for 14 months and still enjoying each drive!

Towards the end of last summer I had the door handles painted black, and fitted black Z badges in place of the silver Nissan ones. No pics of this but will sort soon.

After testing the water with an eBay decal I decided to go it alone and make my own. Ordered up 3 separate strips of red, black and gun metal and got to work. A lot of help from a good buddy of mine with making sure it was all straight, and the best way to make the chequer effect after the door. But generally very pleased with them! Seem to be lasting well too after 6 months of life.

Looks good.  You should sell them as a decal pack.  :notworthy:

Good job on the placing of those stripes - they really enhance the look of the car (and you can't say that about most body graphics).

Thanks Gents.

Les I did toy with creating these as kits but as they were made from 3 colours it would be super time consuming.

But I do have a wedding to pay for so any extra money would be helpful right now :lol:

Semi happy Easter to me.....Box 1 (of 2) of my new exhaust arrived in the post today. Box 2 is still up north at a sorting facility!

However, once it all arrives I will be (again) the proud owner of an Ark Gip V2 system! Can't wait!

The Berk Tech CBE will be up for sale shortly after.

Productive Saturday with the Nismo - ARK Grip V2 exhaust now installed. Sounds as good as it looks, which is hard....just look how pretty it is :D

 

Also pics of black handles and badges. Will try and grab some sound when the weather improves too.

If anyone is interested in the Berk Technology CBE shoot me a PM.

 

EDIT - the pictures on my computer are the correct orientation, but on upload they flip. I know how to work a camera.....honestly :lol:
