Hello Everyone!

I am new here, my name is Jakub and I am from Czech Republic.

After selling my previous toy, 2006 Rev-Up 350z in February this year with 56k km on clock, I was looking around for something to replace the empty place in my heart (and garage). :D

Suddenly I spotted nice 2012 370z GT edition, with Stillen air Intake, Cobra exhaust and Eibach sway bars installed (original parts were with the car as well). Car was bought from a dealer in CZ as new, it had about 43k km on clock, 2nd owner, after test drive, deal was made.

Besides above mentioned modifications, the car is pretty standard, in a nice condition, of course perfectionist like me can find some tiny dents, and all 4 wheels had a talk with a curb (from previous owners).

The driving and handling is fantastic to me, comparing to 350z the improvement really surprised me. The exhaust sound is exactly where I want to have it - significant but not extremely loud.

Yes, there are also some small points disappointing me a bit, the OEM Navi is the basic version, no touch screen (not premium connect), no USB, I cannot play music over BT (or at least I did not find how), no parking camera - at least the last point can be solved with the help of Paul  ^_^

Below I will try to add some picts. Firstly of my ex-car, 350z and then some of the successor, 370z.

Looking forward to share the experiences,

from Czech

Jakub

Welcome Jakub! Not just are the cars great to look at, but I really like the buildings you’ve used as a backdrop in some of the photographs.

Please ask any questions you need to ask - we have a wealth of knowledge here, and if we don’t know the answers, we’re very good at making it up (joke - we always find the answers!).

Great to hear from the Czech Republic!

Jeff.

Hi Jak (see how I HiJak'd this thread?). Welcome to the club. It's so good to get people from outside the UK saying hello.

 

To my eyes your old 350z looks like the HR (higher revving) engine, not the RevUp, because of the bulge in the hood. In the UK the Revup's were from 2006, but the HR's didn't arrive until 2007/2008. So have you just got a new hood on an older car there?

 

...and how did you get a beautiful girl to spray champagne all over it lol?

Point of order! The Rev-up arrived in 2005 in the GT4s....

, I cannot play music over BT (or at least I did not find how), 

Welcome, nice looking motors you have there :D

 

If you have the non-touch screen stereo/nav you will not be able to play music via BT from the phone. However, in my old 2009 370 I fitted one of these - worked a treat.

...or, if you have DAB radio in your country you can fit a DAB radio adapter like mine and it streams bluetooth music too. https://www.pure.com...cts/highway-400

Thank you Paul! Roads are more or less OK here, but the traffic is quite high recently :unsure:

Hi Chubbs, thank you!

I expected someonw would notice that hood.

Yes you are right, I bought used hood from 2008 HR, coz I like the appearance more, and it was kind of "facelift" to my 2006 Rev-Up. Beside I made decent exterior styling - rear wiper and wing delete, debadged, side repeaters from 370z, DRL, and also Bilstein B8+H&R springs.

 

The girl and shampane - it is my wife, the day after our wedding :D there were some leftovers in the bottle so we used it that way  ;)  :D

*Jakub

Here in Czech you can find (rarely) 350z 35th anniversary edition. It is yelow, 2005 with "old" headlights, tail lights, interior, but with Rev-Up engine. Then in 2006 came the Facelift and somewhere in 2007 HR came.

thank you, that is simmilar to my setup. I have BT adapter in a cubby linked to the AUX. In my 350z i made a Phono Hack and used the BT in the same way. But then I swapped HU to Kenwood 7017DAB and that was high better :)

Considering to do the same in my 370z but then I have to remove the original navi+radio and get cubby installed and HVAC controls from base model... That can be done, but I like the appearance of the OEM navi in 370z. :rolleyes:
