  2. 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 itโ€™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 canโ€™t believe I own a nismo , I just wanted a 370gt so I feel very lucky to have this car ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

  3. Hi Les I think working more than 40 hours a week for long periods of time is not good for the work / life balance especially as you get closer to retirement. As a contractor I have worked silly hours for the last 25 years and have just recently had a 40 hour limit imposed. Initially I was against this but am now finding more time to play golf or just go for a walk or just drive the GTR to starbucks during the week on what was work time. Cutting the hours is definitely a good thing!

  4. Yes, only ยฃ35, which I think is good value for 3 laps of Brands Grand Prix (each lap was about 4 minutes). I'd say 60mph was the max, but I was concentrating on showing Bex the racing lines, and accelerating through the corners, rather than the speedo. As I said, not a trackday, but not a parade lap either (and a good opportunity to show the whole family the track (if you take a bigger car ๐Ÿคฃ))

  5. Its the usual group as you say. How many times my car has been called a GTR I cannot count - its almost the only sports car people have heard of from Nissan. I love the obscurity of the Zed but the fact that everyone fears the GTR sometime trickles down to the Zed ๐Ÿ™‚ Most boy racers know the Zed from drifting and I think they assume it automatically as 1000bhp. Driving a 1ltr Juke makes you appreciate it far more. Yesterday coming out of a 30 into a NSL. It just dug into the road and projected itself so much grip. But every day - you don't see another.

  6. Thanks guys. I had always been so resilient but the current lockdown for whatever reason was one too many as most have struggled to a lesser or greater degree. The breakfast cereal of choice is Weetabix or a generic version. I have been literally only eating in the evening for years, but during the weeks off I was walking up to 120 miles a week, and listening to the pod casts on Norwich City and reading - less TV and certainly less watching the news I think helped. Its really it seems ok to say you are not OK - if anyone feels like that, don't worry - just take some time. We had

  7. If you mean 'aggro' in the sense of others egging you on into a race, I've had a few on my rear bumper but generally ignore them until they gradually back off - must say it's usually the typical demographic of BMW 1 Series drivers... ๐Ÿ™„

  8. All Bran, because he already goes fast enough, if you know what I mean? ...or is that too obscure? It's a toilet joke.

  9. Hi Les. Sorry to hear you've not been well mate. It's very good to hear you're working more normal hours. You can push it for a certain period of time but it will catch up with you in the end. House moving and burst pipes sound familiar! It's great you're back. So what's your cereal of choice?!

  11. Great to have you back Les, we've missed you. I agree, time off to recharge is so important. I'm in the middle of two weeks leave right now, and I can feel it doing me the world of good. I'm not sure my demolition of an M&S chocolate hot cross bun just now, fits in to healthy category!, but I too have lost weight and feel better for it. Can't wait to meet up soon...there's light at the end of the tunnel, i'm sure...i've just done a car event that wasn't postponed!...in the meantime, we're always here for each other.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.
