  1. I'm fortunate enough to have worked my way up (depending on your perspective) from a 350Z, to a 370Z and then (via something German) to the GTR. I do absolutely love the latter but in reality I've come to the conclusion that I'm not a fan of having a 'weekend car'. I'd prefer my car to be a daily drive and whilst that's perfectly feasible, it's not ideal. So with garage space etc (and not having to worry about having something big enough for dogs, towing etc), I would probably have a 370Z Nismo as my daily and a GTR sat in the garage as an investment for the future in some hermetically sealed bubble!
  2. Cheers all. Have been away enjoying a long weekend in the Lake District with my wife and the 4 legged furry children.
  3. I was very lucky last weekend. Left via Folkestone on Friday and there had been a nasty crash on the M20 a couple of junctions before the Eurotunnel. I think it must have happened only 10-20 minutes before we went through as they very shortly afterwards closed the motorway. Whilst queueing for the tunnel the Air Ambulance landed on the motorway only 50 yards from us. We were delayed by 2.5 hour as a train had broken down in the morning and they had to turn the electric off to recover it but those behind who got stuck when the motorway closed were part of the ones delayed by 14 hours then then went up to 21 hours over the weekend. Not to bad on the way back, just a half hour delay. Was all worth it to see this amazing place though
  4. Head is confused about this one
  5. You should be happy about it Paul. In a future that is bizarely (currently) insistent on going electric as a green solution (don't get me started on how the power that charges these batteries is produced, or the disposal of the batteries, or the .......... well you get the picture), Hydrogen is a far better solution for the petrol head. Still using a combustion engine and producing the noises most of us love, I for one am definitely hoping it's the future (rather than electric anyway)
  6. I'm off to Spa Francorchamps next Friday for Speedweek and I've got UK stickers for the front numberplate (have one for the front and a bumper one to just in case). Everything I've read says that you need UK since we left the EU (even though you can still buy GB ones). Other things I'm taking (and will do for the European road trip in August) are: UK Stickers / High vis jackets / Spare Bulbs (France) / Beam Converters / Warning triangle / Spare Oil (my choice) / V5 Doc / MOT Cert / Insurance Cert That's a pretty comprehensive list (I do have a fire extinguisher and first aid kit too by choice) since in August I don't know the countries we are visiting - I'm playing it safe.
  7. Not sure at this point, I will have returned from the European road trip a week before so depends on a number of factors - I'll be a possible/hopefully for now.
  8. Belated Happy Birthday John - hope you did something suitably Zed like?
  9. Belated Happy Birthday my friend!
  10. Great news Pete and thanks Dave. I look forward to another meet now Pete, so that we can hear the Cobra to full affect PS. When we were chatting, I couldn't remember the zorst I had on my 350 - it's bizarrely just come to me, I had the 5Zigen A-Spec system.
  11. I don't mind that but I tihnk it would look better if the black on the roof stopped at the b pillar and they'd left the white at the back of the car to the sides. We're all individuals though.
  12. Thanks Dave, I said someone on here will likely have the same and be able to give Pete some instructions in plain English.
  13. File was to big to post all 4 at the same time so here is the back end of our mini meet as it were ..........
  14. Well done for shouting out and posting up about the mini meet idea Paul - was a fantastic day, and had a great brekky in great company. Thoroughly enjoyed it and already looking forward to the next one! Here's a couple of piccies I took .......... Anda rather nice Buccaneer decided to do a fast taxi run whilst we were there, so it owul dhave been rude not to take a pic/video or two ............
  15. Welcome Pete! As Jeff said, was great to meet you yesterday and you have one heck of a 350 there. Look forward to you finding out how to set mapping 3 to hear that exhaust in full glory! Hopefully we'll get to meet up again soon but feel free to post up any questions (eg. how to work the Abbey mapping) in the meantime.
  16. I spot a trend. When I had my tyres replaced in March, Litchfield pointed out that one of my lower ball joints was wearing - didn't say it needed replacing yet though. Considering I'm not mechanically minded, can someone advise at what point I should consider replacing it - when I hear a knocking or is there other signs to look for? (Had a chance encounter with an RX7 and a Skyline R34 while driving through the Peak District on Sunday and the suspension seemed fine on our 'spirited' drive)
  17. Only 20 miles from me - good company and a brekky, hmmmmmm, I'm in
  18. Belated Happy Easter Birthday Geoff!
  19. Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear the news Kev, I hope you find a way to manage the pain and continue to enjoy driving. Hopefully, someone will be able to take your place.
  20. Sorry to hear mate, how low do you have to be to not even stop.
  21. It looks like you had to be already in contact with the organiser or in very early doors to book as a car club so those of us that are already down to attend this are booking show tickets using the link above and will be meeting up somewhere central to the event so we can convoy in together and be together in the display area. I've just bought my ticket for Saturday (select 'Individual Car' under the clubs section) and have amended my details in the OP. Let me know if and when you do the same and I'll keep this thread updated.
