  1. Well before I brought my nismo I done all the research read the reviews herd the critics, they were all wrong, this car is just fantastic cannot fault it ,they say it’s out dated ,crap, they say the ride is too harsh , crap, I love the feel the drive the power the stares lol , you always seem to judge your present car on the one it replaced I had a 07 3.2 TT , it was a great car but the nismo blows it out the water, I still can’t believe I own a nismo , I just wanted a 370gt so I feel very lucky to have this car πŸ‘πŸΎ

  3. Do I found some nice tyre valve stem caps online, some in the USA but wouldn't post to the UK so I bought some from China. I watched the tracking and thought at least they're coming, tracing number included etc and finally delivers today. The first photo is what I ordered, the second photo is what I got πŸ˜‚

  4. Finally managed to fit the new stereo! I'm a bit of a technophobe and there are a lot of wires, but finally (after much support from the supplier) managed to squeeze it all back in ........ So I've taxed her and taken her for the first drive in months! I broke the OEM stereo trying to fix the intermittent speaker problem which is apparently one of the many common problems, which is a shame as I liked the look of the standard Bose, but the new non-mech Alpine allows me to plug in my entire album collection and is def. an upgrade. Also has Bluetooth so can take calls while driving - I

  5. I finally found some time to give the Z (and Juke) a little TLC. To my shame, this is the first proper clean and vacuum they've had this year. The Z looked very unloved. The final result was pretty good. They both need a good detail, but at least they look cared for again.

  8. For me what will complete your ownership is when we get out of lockdown and you can finally get to meets and other club events and meet all these other great owners you currently only get to interact with on here. You couldn't hope to meet a nicer bunch. As someone who had absolutely no interest in 'showing' my car (as that usually involves the dreaded 'W' word) and was apprehensive about meeting other owners talking shop all the time and conversations just going right over my head as I'm not very mechanically minded, I have to say it's been a real surprise as it's part of ownership that

  9. Today I continued to put together a small 'refresh' package for mine, which will happen during May when it's hopefully warmer and I can spend a whole blokey day doing stuff to the car. It's only bits and bobs, plus some professional input for two tasks: * Application of a heavy tint to the rear window - Tint Shack, Horley, Surrey (visited today) * Roof wrapped in either gloss or matt black - Blue Lizard Signs, Gatwick, West Sussex (visited today) * A proper paint decontamination and detail, plus wheels off and cleaned * Touch in of a few minor stone chips to the front end -

  15. the cost of this (Β£35) also included a photo. These are the best 2 out of the 14 they took!, all downloadable at no extra cost (the 'spotted' GTR is in the background of the first shot). We also got given a goody bag, which included 2 different "I've driven Brands Hatch" window stickers. So all in all, a good day yesterday. Now, do I do it again?...

  16. This is for people who want a red starter button, but don't want to pay Β£45+ for the entire assembly. It fits all 370z's. Well, it arrived from China today. I knew it was coming, so I'd already removed the starter button assembly from the dashboard and dismantled it (the longest part of the procedure). Very well packaged - jiffy bag, cardboard box and polythene bag. It also contained a piece of clear plastic, to help with unclipping the parts of your button assembly (but I'd already done that...

  17. So I just bought an MOT failed project, something to do, not sure yet if I just get it through the MOT and sell or keep it as a "investment"... I now have a 2007 1.3 Daihatsu Copen I'll keep you up to date on it as I go if people want...

  18. Shinichiro Irie, Program Designer Director of Z Proto In our ongoing series, The Essence of Z-ness, we first heard from Chief Product Specialist Hiroshi Tamura on what Z-ness means to him and the legacy of Z around the world. In this second installment, we talk with Shinichiro Irie, the Program Design Director of the Z Proto, to ask him what he thought were the qualities that defined the Z Proto, what to look forward to with the next Z and to give insight into what exactly went into the thought process of the Z styling, from pen and paper to reality.

  22. His Z isn't silver, it's white, so he'd have to respray the entire car silver before he sold it, which, given his recent performance, might have been worthy of its own thread.

  23. Looks spot on Gav! Of course, you could have saved yourself a lot of hassle and sold your silver Zed, bought a black one and then just ordered the black side indicators! πŸ˜†

  24. Glad its got under your skin mate. I took the Zed to a National Trust place yesterday as the weather was nice and parked next to all the SUV's it stood out, one Gran said to their grandchild as they walked past look at that car vroom vroom. Amazing 7 years on how much attention the Zed gets. Its now a weekend warrior and I get to pick and choose when it goes out and about, no more Salt in the winter for the Zed. People like the Zed it doesn't offend and to be honest I never get the agro I got when I had the BMW or the last year of the Civic Type R.

  25. It's 'Drive' Brands Hatch eve! I promise to report back after, good or bad, but i'm genuinely excited just to be 'going out'! Bex seems keen too. I expect to put more miles on the Z tomorrow, than I have so far in the rest of 2021! She's clean, detailed, and ready to go.

  26. Agree with you there Carlton. Nearly two months of ownership here, despite some reviews nearly put me off buying mine - I'd then have gone for the 'safe' option of a Golf GTI, Leon Cupra or i30N. So glad that I went with my heart's instinct! Like many of us here, I've had some nice cars, old and young, but the Z gets far more comment and admiration from those I know and complete strangers.

  27. There's no rush mate. Some places do an all in 1 service where you post them off, they do restore them to your spec, then send them back. If you want to go down that route I can post them to the place and you can get them to return them to you. It wouldn't take much of your time and they would be ready for when you have time to fit them

  32. My thoughts on that would be, who cares what other people think - do what you want although you are probably right, they wll be a mixture of grey/brown before long That looks really good Gav, I think this is going to look brilliant!

  33. Absolutely. I don't agree with some things he's written, either. For example, 1969 was NOT the year of the Bee Gees, it was the year of The Stones, obviously - Hyde Park, Altemont, etc. If he can get something as basic as that wrong...

  34. I dropped the Z in for a service today, only a minor one S/P1 whatever it is these days, fresh fully synthetic oil ready for 15th May, though it was overdue by 5 months 🀐 I blame the lockdown πŸ˜‚ I`ve also given the side repeaters a final coat of white primer ready for flatting and pearlescent lacquer tomorrow.

  35. Finally got my car back last night. Instead of the usual SORN over the winter months it went off to a mate of mine for the winter months while I contemplated what to do with her and he got to drive it and sort out a few things for me that needed doing whether I was gonna sell her or not. Since figuring out I was able to keep her it was good to finally get her back. I must admit firing her up for the first time in over 3 months I was actually a bit nervous and yes, I'd forgottten just how loud she was! So here she is all shiny looking (I don't suppose that'll last!!) newly painted black wh

  36. Sorry if I put that question in the wrong thread fellas πŸ‘€. I checked out that link you put up Chubbs for your starter button, theirs a wealth of 370Z loveliness to be bought from their! Unfortunately being fuloughed has hit me quite hard so ive had to manage the pennies and not had the opportunity to use the Z much but I'm be adding some fine touches to get this summer. I hope everyone's got through the lockdown ok and looking forward to a great summer of enjoying these beautiful cars we cherish πŸ˜ŽπŸ™‚

  37. If it is who I think you mean... some people take him that way, some people take it as him just giving brutally honest reviews from his point of view. We get on really well and he's actually a really nice guy and has been a massive source of support for the channel, as well as a good friend. Despite what some may think, he is extraordinarily magnanimous and generous individual. Opinionated for sure (aren't we all), but also a very funny and generous person.

  38. So I made a schoolboy error in not reading the instructions on the pearlescent paint, I'd primed the side repeaters with grey etching primer and then when I went to add the pearlescent it even up silver πŸ™ƒ so I've now rubbed then down again and primed then with white primer, should work out ok this time round πŸ˜„

Got a 370z badge off eBay was quite cheap but it came in satin black so I sprayed it gloss black , came out really good , it took ages to come I had to contact seller a couple of times but when it did come there was 2 😊 so if any body wants it free message me your address and I’ll send it to you πŸ‘πŸΎ

  42. ...just like I missed you commenting on it in your first post! Well spotted, Paul! Which leads me to the thought - 'Remember that no question is too dumb to ask'. We've all been there! In fact, I'm there most days.

  43. Hi Les. Sorry to hear things got bad for you but really pleased that you listened to your body, made some adjustments and are seeing the benefits. I learnt quite early on in my career that busting a gut is rarely rewarded so I flex when I need to but I don't sell my soul to work. Others will no doubt think different to that approach but if I stopped working tomorrow, the company I work for would just bring someone else in and service would be resumed (just a different name in a spreadsheet)! Anyway, keep up the soul searching since you only get one shot at this game so make it a good one

  46. I think Nissan introduced that button on all 370Z's at some point toward the end of the run. The GT cars have a heated seat switch each side of a blank and the convertible ones are different altogether because of the heated/cooled seats (but Nissan stopped selling those in the UK a while back).
