Great - what's your Nismo Number (Behind the Drivers Seat) and I will update the register.

 

What colour did you get? - Storm White or Black (or really rare Silver?)

 

Must be great they have a real presence.

You're not alone, Ben. I've had exactly those thoughts too. The cabin of a Z is a good place to be, isn't it?

You will have to get used to that mate.  There isn't a week goes by that someone doesn't comment, talk to me about the car.  Seems to have been noticed even more now it growls and pops and bangs (well had done this month). Its one of those cars I cannot see ever getting rid of, just retiring it at some point from daily duty.  For the £ it does make the owner feel very special.  Other drivers don't have issues with it - almost like Astons.  People just like them,

I waited over four and a half years to swap the Nismo system out, and it changed the car massively, everyone says the same who has swapped from stock.  But its not really Nissan's fault the various regulations are getting harder on the manufacturers thats why we are seeing so many valved system from manufacturers.  The 350z was actually louder stock than the 370z (even with the Nismo system which is supposed to be the loudest of all the stock exhausts) but the pipes the Nismo has are nearly 5 inches - so when you do swap its best to go with 5" tail pipes so it doesn't look mcuh different at the rear.
