  1. Fraid so mate - I have one of these kits - it fits really well at the edge. Amazon - The Red One is here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01F3M5FI6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have the same one in the Zed - the Red wears out a little after a few years so I just replace it when it does. My good lady and I drove both as did PaulS and his good lady, its interesting we now have two manual and one Auto in the club should give a good comparison.
  2. I read something similar online about the Juke Jeff. I think the way to go is something like Waze - to be honest it knew about the new A14 HADEC3 Cameras before they were even live and were being installed near Huntingdon. Also been a few times I have been warned about stuff on the road or just a Police Car or Van parked long before I got there. I have not used the inbuilt Juke Sat Nav once although I do have the alerts switched on now. My Juke is 10 months old now. Its been great, heated seats I had in the 350z and BMW but don't have in the Nismo and they are nice. The front windsc
  3. Welcome to be club mate 😃. I found traffic alerts the other week in the sat nav but not been near a speed camera to see if it works or not. It now tells me about road works. I tend to use Apple Play and Waze which does speed cameras and other issues on the road. I only found the traffic alerts the other day had not used it and it wasn't clearly enabled a default. Nice colour I very nearly had it. You may well get errors from the auto brake from time to time from what I can see its weather / temperature dependent. Have you let it drive itself yet?
  4. Was there a way of turning a cable to select 95 on the 350z or was that the Type R? Something in my mind says there used to be a way of telling the car it was running on non Super Unleaded. Or have I just made all that up?
  5. No they are very rare - its fun to look at other makes and models which people consider to be exclusive and see how many there are 😃
  6. This may be a better one - Car Registered for the first time by Quarter. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/942253/veh0160.ods If you add all those up you get the total and you can see the numbers per quarter of each year. Roughly V1's were from June/July 2013 to July 2014. Although there were both V1/V2's available together until early 2015 and I know of one car which wasn't registered until May 2015 - but its going to be as accurate as possible. Somewhere in one of the Nismo threads I list the number of V1's registere
  7. DVLA also has raw data to be viewed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/all-vehicles-veh01 The problem is the Nismo's got mixed up in 2014 between the V1 and V2 - there are a few V2's listed as V1's but 2015 onwards should be accurate. 370Z DVLA.pdf
  8. The how many site seems to have issues at the moment. There are definitely more than the V1 but when I last looked it wasn't that high - I seem to recall there were more of some McLarens than the 370z models. So its fairly rare. When they sort their certificate out - I will take a look but the site is coming up as insecure at the moment so I cannot trust connecting too it.
  9. The V1 Cars were all limited run (Big Wings) - so we have a individual serial number plaque behind the drivers seat you can just make it out in this picture (Towards the Middle). The V2's didn't have this. The V1 was limited to just over 100 cars in the UK and some of them didn't make it through GT Academy.
  10. I had a BMW 123d between the two Zeds and it was a utter nightmare to own, it should have been great - but I hated it. In the dealer 13 times in 3 years and I hated the conditional servicing always something on the dash needing to be done. But in the end you need to do what is right for you. I had Hondas - and they were Bullet proof prior to the Zeds, but in all honesty even as a daily driver the Zed was no problem, and gets a lot more attention than the cars everyone see's all the time. But in the end it will be down to what you feel. I know cars will come and go but the Zed will alw
  11. Nice mate let us know how you get on.
  12. 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).
  13. New mats have arrived and even have small mats for behind the seats. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. List Price of the Nismo at time of it ending sale was more than £40k in the UK but at the end of 2017 it was £38050 according to the Archive of their site: https://web.archive.org/web/20161229001324/https://www.nissan.co.uk/vehicles/new-vehicles/370z/prices-specifications.html The V1 Nismo RRP was £37k in 2014. So the price went up 3k in those years and no one in 2014 paid the RRP price. So it did gently go up. I didn't realize when it ended it was a £40k car.
  15. 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. So according to the site it would be £150 a year Find the cost of tax for used cars registered on or after 1 April 2017 NISSAN 370Z Euro6, 2016 3.7 V6 328ps, M6 The information below shows the cost of vehicle tax for the car you selected. It also shows the car's CO2 emi
  16. Nope mate you read about it. From what I have seen its a 370z Chassis and built up from there. 3ltr Twin Turbo Engine - sounds great so far doesn't it. Alas though it has no way of passing the Europe Emissions standards and won't be coming to us or Europe and if this pandemic continues we will see if it even happens. The next Zed we will see is likely to be EV or similar. The 370z will be the last Petrol Zed in the UK - unless someone thinks different?
  17. 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
  18. Fraid not only what is in dealer stock but cannot order a build now. They are gone and the new one isn't likely to come to Europe either. When they are gone they are gone.
  19. 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 🙂 )
  20. Nice 8 shape motion with the sponge 🤐
  21. Agree - This is a picture of the front of my car - as an example - and this is the stock ride height.
  22. Hard to tell. Need a V2 Nismo owner to measure the front clearance to the splitter. Wheel arches don't look far out to mine.
