    Spotted ? COP

    NISSAN 350 reg ending COP spotted at approximately 06.30 this morning on the 1307 Haverhill!
  2. Hi Paul, My cooler kicks in around 80°C, I haven’t seen the gauge over 95°C since fitted. Runs on one of those thermostatic adapter plates and seems to be spot on so far. I personally think it’s a “have to” mod to save degradation of you’re oil ( I was hitting around 110°C when pushing at 60 mph ) I could be wrong but it keeps my mind at rest it’s a bit of a pain but worth it. Top job! Camera is still working well m8. That was a no brained too.
  3. Just a quick spot whilst passing but waved anyway 😊 It's my first time on spotted so I'll try and keep it up. We don't see many Z's or gtr's in the area but I will try from now on.
  4. i hope they're honest jons m8. I remember my 350 wasn't cold n the first company said compressor! 2nd company said leak and fixed it for 45 quid plus vat!!! Good luck
  5. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm shiny. I must get out and do mine. Maybe in June when we have a ray of warm sunshine lmfao. Good job m8, do you use a powered buffer or by hand?
  6. Nice 1. Had these on when I bought the motor. Good idea to heat em up rather than wait for a warm day at the moment
  7. Cheers for the replies/info. Under tray's been off a few times now so no worries there . I'm in Suffolk m8, just outside bury st Edmunds. A mate will do a full geo but can only get the stock info off the database! Just wondered if there were any different settings that people prefer without eating tyres. I still haven't had it checked from dropping 30mm on springs .
  8. Hi everyone, Happy new year!! Can someone tell me if I need to replace tensioner, idle pulley etc when I change the belt. On 50k now. Did a search with no success so sorry if it's been covered before. Local Nissan didn't have a clue!! Oem or aftermarket?? Also, anyone know ideal fast road wheel alignment settings when dropped 30mm. Laser booked for next week Cheers
  9. Hi James, Lovely motor, what part of the country are you from?
  10. Hi blobbish, Don't suppose you were at h dev in April? I was having my motor tweaked and a random bloke in a s/c 370 ( looked like yours ) thought my car on the ramp was a 350, when I said I used to own a 350 he then had to check the badge . I got really fu***d off when he proceeded to stand underneath and started slating things ?? Bad business practice from h dev and didn't do anything when I asked them to remove him? Just wondered
  11. Just to play devils advocate, just take a look at YouTube, Paul's 370z - fat z. They are legal somewhere . Sorry to drag it up again, I just came accross it!! Also..... Smartstop
  12. All good m8. It'd drive you mental behind it in traffic if it flashed when brakes are used!
  13. I should hope so, it would end up sh**ing the life out of the car behind. Imagine 70mph on the motorway and thinking the car in front is emergency braking every time the brakes are touched!!
  14. Yeah please. Shoot me a pm. I'm getting a couple of prices at the moment. One of which did a sportz club members roadster and he has a very good eye. I just hope he doesn't come up too expensive. There's a fine line between replace and repair. Cheers Andy
  15. Hi everyone, Does anyone know of a good upholsterer that can do a job on my seats and door cards? I'm in the Cambridge area and as such, the prices are rediculous to say the least. I just wanna freshen up the cabin. I hope this hasn't already been done but I came up blank on a search. Any help would be good. Cheers
  16. I had an oil cooler fitted and all fluids changed on Wednesday, plugs changed and everything checked by a buddy of mine. he does exceptional work for reasonable money. Same bloke that changed diff & box oil a couple of months ago. I haven't got any old fluid in the z now!! I know and trust him as he works on m3's on the amateur circuit so confident he knows his stuff. I'll get some photos done soon
  17. I was having a look at those the other day on flea bay. Where did you get them from and how much? I think they're about 30 quid on flea bay.Not sure about them on the gunmetal/grey that I have though?
  18. Dropped in new ZOLE mats in the z. Not sewn anymore, sort of stuck on.
  19. +1 for these. They were already fitted when I bought the motor.
  20. Picked up my dipped window switch covers and put em in. Looks good, I'm just thinking of other bits to do without going over the top. Happy days A
  21. Was simple really, Just swap out the circuit board for the drivers side control! I spent half an hour testing the signal voltages before I had the eureka moment. Two minutes and a small screwdriver. It seems that it's only the actual switch that makes the decision to auto function, not the module. A great result and a chufty badge for me. Someone prior to me has had the switch out before and scratched the cover panel so will be getting these dipped at the weekend. Mmmmmm carbon fibre gloss me thinks. Does anyone have the definition for ZOCD? Paul, why don't my emojis post when I use em? WTF?
  22. Hi, I managed to muster up the courage to fit my U.S window switches today! Fitted them the other day but they worked on the opposite doors! Had a play with em this afternoon and I now have one touch window controls. Yipeee. It may sound trivial to most but it was something that bugged me every time I sat in the Z! Now to get the switch panels dipped Andy
  23. Yeah there's loads online and I think Paul s has one on here. Simple to do, just make sure you take the tension out of the pedal when undoing it all. I've been looking around for the right size and rate Spring for about 2 months, ringing company after company with no joy. Flea bay it was in the end but f*****g expensive Spring! Just under 30 quid! Well worth it though, the feel is more positive and you don't sound like you've never driven a manual before. Good luck finding a Spring although they are still on flea bay from the U.S. Should have been my first mod on the Z!!
  24. +1 on difficulty. Fitted one myself last month. Simple to do, just be careful with the plastic filter cover. Plenty of 'how to' guides online.
