  3. Some interesting rumours on the net that the 400z being the last petrol Z is a short term stop gap to be replaced in 2025 by an all electric version perhaps using a modified Ariya platform. I hope this is true as Nissan were the BEV trailblazers having had the leaf in production for over 10 years now. But are losing market share to tesla and need to put there stake in the sand on a sports BEV soon. I think the real worry is that ghosn was a visionary leader. They seem to be run by penny pinching accountants now so who knows what may happen...

  4. I am going to be hated - but I have a confession I pretty much only ran the 350z on Supermarket Unleaded for its entire life - never missed a beat but you could feel the difference when I ran it on VPower. The Nismo I have only run on VPower all its life apart I think from perhaps two fills of the Tesco stuff. But I can say I ran the 350z on unleaded. (I expect my membership to be revoked).

  5. Thinking about this, I am sure I saw written down a Nissan commitment to provide parts for discontinued models for a minimum of 10 years after production ceases/ceased.

  6. Ordered an MXS 5.0 last night. My battery was nearly flat when I went out... I ordered the extension cable too so that I can have the unit in my garage and run the cables out to the car.

  7. Ordered today ready for the new season. The one I had is starting to wear out after 4 years. So I thought I would order a new one from the States. Love these with the shape of the V1 Nismo. Available in a few colours https://teespring.com/stores/betos-store

  11. Well...?!? The anticipation is building. Like others have said, once you drive it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Its gets under your skin pretty quickly and tends to stay! I had a 350Z a long while ago but had to take a leave of absence (kids came along) but never lost the desire to get another. Lucky for me, I 've managed to return with a 370 a few years ago. Still love it (when Boris let's me drive it). It's not the most luxurious or up-to-date for toys, etc but it has soul. It's probably too late to mention, but don't be too disappointed with the engine note. The stan

  12. There was legislation introduced in 2003(?) that stated all new (petrol) cars sold in UK/EU must be capable of running on 95RON (without causing damage). I don't know about the 370Z, but for the 350Z Nissan themselves said that running on 95RON would casue about a 5% drop in power and also an increase in fuel consumption compared to the recommended 98RON.

  13. Spawn of the Devil! 👿 I looked at an 08 plate 350z roadster in London two summers ago. Nice looking car, until I asked the owner what petrol he used. I walked away immediately. I would never buy a 350/370 that has been run on standard unleaded. There must be a reason for the owner's manual telling you to only use 95ron if you absolutely have to. Someone will tell me I worry too much, but I don't care. It's better to err on the safe side. If you're concerned that Super Unleaded is more expensive, I reckon you pretty much recoup the difference in improved fuel economy (anyway, that's w

  14. Yes, 98 Ron (ie Super Unleaded) but watch out, some garages ‘Super’ is only 97 Ron!... I use Tesco’s, many use Shell.

  15. Well, the design is certainly no better than the 370 - some might say it's not as stylish. Problem is, it's 400hp and my 370 isn't.

I put in November 2017 and got this _ I don't know what the date of registration is but if you have it feed it into this site: https://carfueldata.vehicle-certification-agency.gov.uk/new-vehicle-tax.aspx Choose used Car Registered after 1st April 2017 as the option.

  19. One owner could be the dealer to pre register the car happens a lot. If it’s too young to have a MOT you can’t do it but if not check it’s MOT history online that often tells if there are underlying issues. If in warranty all is well anyway. Search for the reg online and see if any pictures come up as well or if it’s been a press car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. A few bits need sorting on the Nismo as it comes to its 7th Birthday in March - the daily commute and living outside. I think I also want to take the opportunity to get the car ready for events later this year (fingers crossed). So contacted the dealer to get costs - couple of items I will fit myself and the other I will have the dealer fit. New Front, Rear and Wing Mirror Stripes - as the Mirror and Front Stripes are showing their age now - I may as well do the rear as that's the same ago and has cleaning product on the edge. (Possibly the most expensive stickers in the world 🙂 )

  22. Evening all - just registered this evening and hoping to learn of any bad points and/or things to look out for/ask about concerning a three year old (December 2017) 370Z Nismo. I've read about a couple of potential failings but they happened to be on older cars (2013/2014) so they may have been ironed out by Nissan by 2017. One thing I've read about is the steering lock failure, remedied temporarily by removing a fuse! All assistance gratefully received, but I guess the best thing is to post this question in the main 370Z specific area.

  31. Take the nut off each clamp and then put the respective eyelet on the bolt and re attach the nut and tighten it up, you can then just plug the charger into the connector each time you want to use it. Lesmo has a picture in the battery charger thread in the 370z section of his Eyelet M8 attached and it`s the same thing 👍 Looking at how little room you have there a ratchet ring spanner would be best for that.

  37. Just ordered a CTEK 5.0 as it will cope with the Zed as well as the Juke and Mini which have start stop. Thanks for the advice. Also ordered one of these Indicator Eyelet M8 to have permanently connected to allow a quick check. Not sure if I will fit it to the Zed or Mini yet. Have also ordered 2 x De-humidifier Bags for the Zed as that's a brilliant idea.

  38. I think it will be one of those things that rarely get used but would a life saver when you needed it, plus it has usb ports and adapters so you can charge a mobile phone if you get caught out.

  40. Tip 1: Over-inflate your tyres 5-10psi each, so as to avoid flat spots. If you can roll it backwards and forwards a bit from time to time then so much the better, but over-inflation is more important. Just remember to adjust them to the correct pressure before driving on the road. Tip 2: The cleaner it is - both externally and internally - the less it will hold onto moisture. There's not a great deal you can do if the air surrounding it is damp, but ensuring good circulation of as dry air as possible is a big help (a dehumidifier is a good purchase for a garage, but I think that is bes

  41. Ditto with the Z, Garaged, covered and not coming out until the sun makes an appearance and the salt is off the roads..... got it out of the garage yesterday to turn over and keep the parts moving and electrics charged.

  42. Since getting the daily run around, the GTR has been sat in the garage looking all clean and waiting for an Indian Summer so I can take her for a spin. Well I say clean, she is of course gathering dust whlst sat in the garage so I have ordered a GTR car cover for a bit of added protection.

  44. I've been reading my Nissan 350 Road Test Portfolio book (not just looking at the pictures!) and a couple of comments have stood out for me: 1: "You can liken it to someone ripping the heart out of you body" confided a Nissan official when his company announced in 1996 that it would discontinue marketing the 300ZX in the U.S. "And without a heart, the body cannot survive". "Those words turned out to be hauntingly prophetic: the ensuing years saw the Japanese carmaker's fortunes plummet to near bankruptcy..." 2. When Carlos Ghosn was appointed from Renault to turn Nissan arou

  45. It can take a while as its only 5 amps. When is was using the GTR only at weekends I kept it permanently connected outside rain or shine. I never bought the 2m extender as the nearest socket is 10m away. So I cut the ends off and soldered 10m of wire to make my own. I've had no issues in the 3 years I've used it this way, bonnet on both the z and the GTR shuts fine and when I drive the car I place the connector in a waterproof container. GTR was on its original battery and if left for 2 days it would struggle to turn, even using it through the week. The CTEK solved all of that. Sent from

  46. Festive greetings, all! . Just like LESmo, I enclose a photo just to remind you kind folks what Daytona Blue looks like. The detailing effects are called “Gloucestershire Road Crap” and are really easily applied - and free. Stay safe my friends.

  47. I thought I would open this to all so you could contribute any top tips to the forum readership. You may have learned something over the years because you regularly SORN a vehicle; you may pick up a few tips if the latest pandemic has caused you to have a car parked up, where it had been regularly used, and you are worried about TLC. Those who have a garage available will be better placed during the winter, of course, but a little bit of help shared amongst us all would be welcome. So, if you have any tips for how to nurture a car through a long period of little or zero activity, please s

  48. Admiral have just sent me the multi-car (370 plus Juke) quote for next year (4 Jan) and it's £10 less than this year. No-brainer for me as it is the wrong time of year for me to be bothered shopping around. Numbers: Total £415; Juke £185; 370 £230.
