    Kev thanks for the reply, as I mentioned in my first post here it was for those people who don't go into either board (I for one have never used the View New Posts function of this or any other site I visit). We ought to catch up some time, you need to see Alex again (and Edit obv).

    a great reminder of one of the reasons why I stopped coming here. Why on earth was my post in the Private Meets board deleted with no message sent to me? It wasn't breaking any forum rules and again I find the over moderation amazing. I don't think having that post in the private meets board was wrong, there are people who may well not go into the public meets section and didn't know about it. Come on guys make this site fun to visit.. I am already at the stage again of thinking wtf am I doing here.
  4. Hi all, Not been on too much recently (what with work and the little one) and I popped on today to see if there was anything about the Annual Crimbo meet at the Ace, well I can't see anything so I thought I would get the ball rolling. http://www.ace-cafe-london.com/default.asp...m=12&y=2008 is a link to the December activity list for the Ace and I wondered what people think? Obviously they have stopped the dedicated Jap Car night due to stupidity but that doesn't mean we can't still meet up there. So what dates do people like? I like the 8th of December but am open to suggestions. Due to the fact that no date is going to suit everyone I have decided to make it the 13th of December @ 8pm, this is a Saturday and doesn't really crash any one elses events (as it was a tad rude after all). I am fully aware that this won't suit everyone and I am sorry for that but this does make it easier for everyone if a date is proposed sooner rather than later (it is only 2.5 weeks away after all ) Names on the list please.

  5. Give Sky Insurance a call (http://www.skyinsurance.co.uk/) they have done a really good job with my car and they are mod happy. I got better quotes from them rather than from Adrian Flux.
  6. I was going to suggest giving the car back because it doesn't work as advertised and subsequently falls out of the sale of goods act. As previously mentioned, you bought a car that doesn't actually work correctly, unless they can correct those issues now you should have no issues giving it back and demanding a full refund.
  7. Having owned an 06 and now an 07 I have to agree with go for the 07, I love mine even more than I loved the 06. There is something sexual about the lump in the bonnet as well.
  8. I think I will be camping... in my nice warm bed 20 minutes up the road I will be there on Sunday (getting the Z serviced tomorrow morning). I can bring things over on Sunday if anyone wants something.
  9. Sky (not related to the TV company) Insurance are good. http://www.skyinsurance.co.uk/ I just got my renewal thru, all in for under 1k, not bad when you consider that I wrote off my last Z (total loss, claim value being the price of the new car). They are import and mod friendly.
  10. As you're so close to them I would give TDI a call. http://www.tdi-plc.com/index.php?pge=C_contactus Great bunch of guys and very helpful.
  11. Busy with work, I work for a London based charity at the moment, let me tell you they are a complete PITA, I now remember why I swore off them the last time. The one good thing out of this is that they are paying for me to go on training courses (unheard of as a contractor), likely to be skimming over now and again but won't be back full time for a while.
  12. Please let me know the next time something like this is happening, not been around lately due to work so pop me a pm and I will get the mail telling me I have one.
  13. I should be there for both Saturday and Sunday, need to check with Edit to see her thoughts on this but as it's like... 20 mins up the road I will get slated if I don't make it (even tho we have guests that weekend).
  14. Umm unless they have started using 3m film I wouldn't bother, there were lots of issues of film lifting after periods of time. Mind you I am a bit of a fanboi when it comes to Paintshield but I will say that it's been worth having it done for piece of mind.
  15. I was wondering the same thing, I wouldn't be without mine.... unless of course it's some of the cheapy crappy non Paintshield film.
  16. Have you had your loom replaced yet? I mean it must be about time on those things
  17. Not that I am aware of mate, however you can ask around, I have met a number of people and they have heard my exhaust. Speak to those who went to the SuperCar Sunday or the TDI Dyno Day.
  18. What a great day out, loads of really exotic cars. Some of the cars that caught my fancy (but by no means some of the most exotic, I just happened to take pictures of these ones ) http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00475.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00480.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00481.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00483.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00484.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00486.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00487.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00500.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00506.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/SuperCarSunday/DSC00507.jpg
  19. Well folks I got my car back yesterday from the nice people at Paintshield, some of you may not know that I had the car done late last year and that at the time they put the 2 piece bonnet onto the car, having seen the new 1 piece bonnet I decided to get Tom to put that onto the car at the same time that he was doing something else for me. Now on to the neat part. I saw a request from Tom recently to have a couple of doner cars for them to try something new, I happened to give him a call and found out that I was the first person to actually respond so I am proud to say that I am also the first person to have a completely Paintshielded car, I am talking doors, roof, rear wing (including the Nismo wing) as well as spats. I turned up at the SuperCar Sunday show today and showed the car off, unless you actually know it's there you really couldn't see it. Proof is in the pudding so to speak. http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00489.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00490.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00491.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00492.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00493.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00494.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00495.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00496.jpg http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Paintshield/DSC00497.jpg All in all I am really pleased with the outcome, I certainly don't need to worry about leaving it super market car parks any more
  20. I would also suggest looking at the Stillen True Dual, I have had both (Nismo on the first Z, Stillen on the second) and I would have to say that the Stillen sounds better.
  21. Same place that the AGM has been held at for the last couple of years I believe.
  22. Well I will be coming from Colchester, give me an idea of what time you're going to be somewhere so that it gives me an idea of what time I need to leave.
  23. What time and where are you thinking of meeting? I see a hint of orange perhaps joining the red haze.
  24. Anyone planning on driving up the night before and staying in a hotel?
  25. Bloody awful, I mean take a look at this http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Image2.jpg this http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/TemperO/Image1.jpg or http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/350z/DSC00270.jpg or finally this http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/Wolf823/350z/Dash.jpg I have to admit that I have had both my Z's Paintshielded and I would do it again (infact, I just booked it in for the full FULL kit).
