  1. "the exhaust note doesn’t have the same distinctive character as the old 370Z" - lol The 'old 370z' stock exhaust doesn't have a 'distinctive character. It sounds cr@p. I wonder how much of this article is similarly misinformed.
  2. Do the wheels get refurbed for that as well? Also, what exactly is this 9-year protection?
  3. Am I late for the last one, or early for the next one?
  4. The side of one of our cars had a close encounter with a hedge recently, resulting in a host of small scratches down one side, some of which looked a bit deep. Had a go at them yesterday. Firstly, I tried Meguiars ScratchX - it did no good at all. Then I tried T-Cut Metallic - WOW!!! With a bit of elbow grease, the scratches are gone! Bloody good stuff. I was surprised at how ineffective my ScratchX was, because I thought it used to be okay - maybe the mixture's separated and it needs a good mix.
  5. Naughty old Nissan. They like to take your money, but aren't so good at customer service. Sadly, this is the norm these days. Could you find someone who'd be able to re-rivet the panel, if you were to disassemble it and fix the actuator? It's a pity that 2 small rivets are causing you so much grief. Hope you get it sorted.
  6. Sorry to hear of your plight - and I'll say straight away that I can't help you with your specific question. I've had 2 x 370's, spanning eleven years and - touch wood - not experienced anything other than a flat key fob battery. Have you tried asking the people who repaired your doors on those previous occasions? Surely they can tell you how they did it? (even if you have to slip them a tenner for the knowledge). Or maybe keep pestering/messaging the guy on The370z.com until he reveals how he did it?!
  7. Hi Anthony. I can't see any reason why the exhaust fitting on an import would be any different to a UK car. If there are any slight differences, I'd imagine your local exhaust fitter could sort it out. Let us know what happens.
  8. Oh yeah, it was my Birthday, wasn't it?!!! Good old Pope decided to make it Easter too. Thanks a million for the good wishes everyone. 70 next year - yay!!!!
  9. Excellent! You won't be disappointed. From your photos, it looks like they sent you the one that sounds like a lawnmower. ...some lawnmower!
  10. Insurance company wins either way, of course.
  11. Bummer, Chas. As Dave says, luckily nobody was hurt. Will you get the repair done through insurance?
  12. OMG - I thought it was a typo!
  13. You've got Zeditis mate. 187th car? WTF???
