  1. I've got a space saver too. Its the same part as used on one of the Infiniti cars - I bought it as such and saved a few quid.
  2. This is how the front end should have been designed! https://www.autoevolution.com/news/nissan-400z-rendered-with-370z-s-boomerang-headlight-design-148959.html
  3. Oh my word, that is one flipping ugly car. The z is about sleek undisturbed lines, it looks like they've ripped off a Mustang for the rear of the car and the front bonnet/lights look like an MX5's. Not keen on the angular design in front of the rear wheels either, its a bit too much like a Toyota C-HR.. And that completely square front grill, seriously is that he best they could come up with? it just looks like a collection of different ideas thrown together.. Maybe it's looks better in real life (and not bright yellow) but so far not a fan of it. Fingers crossed for the 450z in 2030.
  4. Surprised no-one has mentioned this. The prototype (very close to production spec) next gen Z car has been announced. https://www.motortrend.com/news/nissan-z-proto-first-look-review-400z-preview/
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vehicle-12v-2W-GPS-Signal-Interference-Shield-Tracker-Interceptor-New=item1a9f67ae85:g:IQUAAOSwcH5e~MPc https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tiandin-INTERFERENCE-TRACKING-STALKING-Detector/dp/B08CX74MC4/ref=pd_lpo_23_t_0/260-4018235-0771645?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B08CX74MC4&pd_rd_r=3499b8c1-d13d-47b8-9c09-d6fe0c250be7&pd_rd_w=fZZA3&pd_rd_wg=TWP01&pf_rd_p=7b8e3b03-1439-4489-abd4-4a138cf4eca6&pf_rd_r=7S6X4TSZ795D2D29EFHW&psc=1&refRID=7S6X4TSZ795D2D29EFHW GPS signals can be blocked easily by one of these cheap devices, rendering most trackers useless.
  6. Depends on how smart your charger is. My Ctek says in the manual that the normal battery program is suitable for wet batteries, MF, Gel *and many *AGM batteries*. Looking at the charging profiles, the only difference for my ctek between normal and AGM is that normal charges up to 14.4v and AGM charges up to 14.7v. The float charge is the same. If your battery charger is very old/basic, it might charge at over 15v which can cause issues for AGM batteries.
  7. I did this on my 350z. W brace was was so corroded it was useless. My 370z is garaged now, but if it wasn't I'd be inspecting this part every year. Mine didn't come up on my MOT as being an issue as its non structural I suppose, a performance piece.
  8. Yes, it will be lead acid or possibly an AGM variant. Either way, a standard lead acid battery charger will work. The only time you have to be careful is with lithium based batteries. These are not fitted to the 370z as standard, as they cost a fortune.
  9. Bit late, but CTEK do an excellent battery charger that has a float/trickle charge program for extended periods. I have an MXS 5.0. https://www.ctek.com/products/vehicle/mxs-5-0
  10. If only.. https://performancedrive.com.au/next-gen-nissan-z-car-envisioned-with-datsun-240z-inspiration-1313/?fbclid=IwAR3VLMG3vIDmGpBtwTAiMrFfZ89Vle0Dkt2Mx20xkwUo6g1CAJEnyDSoMvk
  11. Test mule spotted.. V6TT maybe? https://www.motor1.com/news/379265/nissan-370z-test-mule-spotted/
  12. I don't see what the holdup is. Freshen the interior including gadgets, squeeze in the 3.0L turbo from the Q60 (399bhp at £145 tax), tweak the handling and gearbox, a few external cosmetic bits, and bobs your uncle. Could have done this a couple of years ago, would have been fine for a 5-6 year shelf life until something revolutionary comes out. Call it the 375z. Basically this: https://engineswapdepot.com/?p=29183#targetText=The%20new%20engine%20is%20found,%2DCarbon%202%2Dway%20differential.
  13. Does it affect your insurance at all? I suppose you'd have to tell them you've had it done.
  14. Sure, I'm happy to contribute if you think my ramblings are worthwhile! I think you need to profile your audience first to understand the broad categories of people who visit this site. Using this you'll be able to consider how to make the site and club better. Broadly, I would guess you have the following user groups: 1) Social users, those who contribute, attend events etc, probably a high percentage are paying members. Frequent visitors to site. 2) Information seekers. "Help my XYZ has just started smouldering, how do I fix it?" or "should XYZ make this noise?" - low percentage of membership uptake. Hit and run type users. 3) Social Information seekers. "Considering a new exhaust, what's out there?" - low/medium percentage of membership uptake, low event attendance. Infrequent but consistent visits to site. Plus I guess there would be others, and the more experience you have of the users on this site, the better you could define the categories. From this, you could see what you offer each user category, how you could monetise those users. Target those users in 3) and attempt to convert to 1). How about a "recommended kit" or "product reviews" section within restricted content? Then link through to the "how to fit" section. Target users in 2) by offering short, cheap memberships to gain access to restricted technical content. A week's access to content for £2? Or how about giving non-members access to restricted content, but with lots of Adverts, etc. Although there is technical limitations on this I suppose, depends on what the forum software can do. Anyway better get back to the day job!
