Hello everyone,

Joined the group because it seems more active in meets than 350z-uk. Had my Z just over a year and loving it. The summer just gone I won a competition for a quite a few car parts, so now it's modded I'm ready to get it on some club stands this summer. Is there anyone on here from Yorkshire? Looking forward to meeting some fellow petrolheads. Cheers!

Welcome mate. Your wheels really suit the car (what are they?) and the wing sets it all off very nicely. Got any more photos?

 

Yes, the club has quite a few meets, workshop days and events organised for this year. Sign up for as many as you wish. We'd love to see you and your motor. We're a friendly, welcoming bunch, with a collective Z enthusiasm/knowledge that goes back several years. Additionally, we're a bit laid-back and not too hectic. That, in a nutshell, is why I love this place. Hope you like it too.

 

 

 

Edit ...I see you chose the fastest colour.

Hi Jbiggz :welcometonissansportz:

 

Your Z looks epic in that pic!  I'm a fan of the rear spoiler too.

Hello and welcome from me too. :hello:

As others have said, I really do like your wheels. If you were thinking of selling them my address has the Y-word in it. :D

Although I suspect may be a fair distance from you as I don't recognise the car park - are you North, South, East or West Yorks? I suspect from the picture North or West. I'm a weirdo from the East.

2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though - good.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome, appreciate the feedback on the car too. The wheels are TSW Nurburgring's, TSW was the main sponsor of the competition and I had my pick of the full range.

 

The spoiler is a cheap fleabay one, looks like a replica of the nismo wing, just doesn't have the vertical support in the centre as the nismo does.

 

I'm based in Wakefield, west Yorkshire and that car park is the Askham Bar York park & ride. 

 

I'd like to share more photos of the car, where's the best place to post them on here? and will I need to downsize them at all? pics pop out of my camera around 20MB  :P

I think "the competition" is an alternative club.  But I could be wrong.

Sorry for not giving any details it was a competition run by LK performance a company based in Cleckheaton. It was sponsored by TSW primarily but also included bc racing coilovers, hardrace suspension upgrades, K&N induction kit, yokohama tyres, paintkillers vinyl wrappers, and Meguiar's. A fair bit haha. Got the car back this week from the wrappers, got a few wrapping details done to the car. The meguiar's part included a day at their HQ learning how to properly detail a car using their products. Am I allowed to post links? There's a few bits of promo footage for it all around the Web.

Likewise.

[. . .]

 

That was a lucky guess on my part (from West Yorks and pictured in North Yorks).  That must be the new Askham Bar car park then - I used to use the old one at Tesco many years ago, but there are a few a bit further round the A64 that are more convenient - but I did pass it the other day on my way to the Tesco filling station, although I wasn't in the Zed, but I did fill up with Momentum.  I will keep my eyes and ears open for you in future though. :)

Here are some photos of what's been wrapped now it's finally clean. All wrapped gloss black: roof, B pillars, rear diffuser and front bumper. Keeping it subtle alongside the grey.

 

Edit: forgot mirrors too  :D

Hi Jbiggz!

 

Can't say anything that hasn't already been said already!  So instead I'll just say welcome to the club - glad you found us :)

 

Look forward to seeing more pics (I'll watch the vid when I get a moment...)
