  1. Of course petrol cars will be available for some years on the used market after 2030, but maybe that will be the time (although probably before) that the government will ramp up road tax and fuel duty to "encourage" people to go electric. I'll be 70 in 2031, so maybe I'll have lost interest in cars by that time 😄
  2. Being a child of the 60s, I think that I've seen and experienced the best years of the evolvement of modern motoring. Come the day that I'm taxed off the road in my petrol cars or by some other government pressure, then I may admit defeat. Strangely enough, my wife and grown up kids see things differently!
  3. Plus silent, sterile and soul-less.
  4. Finally got round to pairing my phone after seven months of Z ownership - but.... Pairing the phone was easy, but I can't get any music playing through the car's speakers. What am I NOT doing?
  5. I stumbled upon this informative video on youtoob earlier - as a Nissan newbie (ish) still I learnt a few things about the Z history and timeline. But, the one surprising thing I learnt is that Datsun was a sub division of Nissan, initially not allowing early Zs to be badged as Nissans outside of Japan. For donkey's years I always thought that Datsun just changed its name to Nissan, for whatever reason!
  6. Both stunning looking cars with their own differences. Very happy with my V2, but ideally it would have the V1's wing.
  7. Old vs new (ish). At my cousin's lock up/workshop where he keeps his oldies.
  8. I've only been here for seven months or so, but you seemed to be one of the main players here. Surprised, and sorry, to see you part company with it.
  9. I'd seen a license plate mount in the catalogue, one that's smaller than standard and seemed to attach where the tow hook is located.
  10. Totally gutted that I was unable to attend this event - right up my street in all ways. Perfect weather too by the looks of it. I really hope that this event happens again next year - no way I'm missing it next time round!
  11. I've no idea what they will fit Paul, apart from the models designated in the T/S spec. I'll give them a call to see if they can assist. Thanks.
  12. These are mine, just the 'Z' illuminates in a redish orange. Do you recognise these as a Nissan part, or some type of aftermarket item?
  13. On my way back from the west country a couple of weeks ago, I needed to drop by to a place on an industrial estate in Guildford, just off the A3. However, when I entered the postcode into the car's sat nav, it came back as not recognised. I'm not sure why this was as the postcode isn't a new one as the industrial estate has been there for some years now. Anyhow, has anyone ever updated their sat nav system and is it a case of approaching a Nissan dealer to get this done?
  14. So, my illuminated Z door sills are definitely not standard?
  15. ^^^^ What Paul says..... Completely agree - can't do better than that in the south east.
  16. Absolutely right - out of interest I bunged my 67 plate Nismo's registration into WBAC the other day. Being honest with declaring one mildly scuffed front wheel (5cm long, you have to look as your eye isn't drawn to it) and a few minor stone marks on the front the offer came out at £26,675 which is more than £3k since I bought it just over six months ago. I do appreciate that had I turned up on site at WBAC they would have found something else (not sure what!) so even allowing another £250 for that I'm still a bit less than £3k up.
  17. Well, it's pretty much equidistant, which I would never have believed in the first place. According to RAC Route Planner, 190 miles to Penzance and 194 to Dover!
  18. Washed it this morning, then drove from Surrey to Somerset, stopping off for a photo outside Centre Parcs on the way - our favourite place when the kids were kids!
