What have you done for your 370z today?

Had this on my 350 with HFC's, sounds great for sure. You will love it I am sure.

 

 

Didn't actually want to fit it as it looks beautiful, do a bumper tuck to show it off more if you can :)

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

I know you have a different bumper but I'm pretty sure the light is standard over all the 370Z range.

 

I gave up trying to get mine off a little while back because the thread on those 2 nuts was so rusted up the bolts ended up turning in the plastic housing.

 

Yours being a newer car shouldn't be such a problem but I would advise using something like WD40 to soak the threads for a while before you start to prevent the same thing happening to you.

I don't know if it helps you but this is what the factory light looks like:

That's very frustrating. You might want to drop the exhaust off its rubber mountings to see if you can move it away enough.

 

I've an after market exhaust which gives plenty of access. Not that it helped me!

Does it really only flash under hard braking?

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!!

All good m8. It'd drive you mental behind it in traffic if it flashed when brakes are used!

Found out my tyres are very low on tread, very uneven wear. A friend of my brothers has a tyre place nearby so I am going to him for 2 x Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric 3 for front and 2 Assemetric 2 for the rear, priced at £730 fitted.

I need to dig a bit more but if they flash then go steady there okay, on mine if you press the brake pedal within 8 seconds they don't flash as if in a traffic jam etc

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!!

So you have to press twice to stop the flash then. Will be intending to see

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

I seem to recall this , he was a mate of a guy who was getting his s14 mapped if i recall, he was a d*** and he was spoken to by Phil , but some people are like that they could hardly eject him from the premises for being a knobhead.

 

Blobbish's car was just there at the time having its supercharger finished off the guy had nothing to do with that

After the front bumper, rear quarter and the rear bumper had a little rub and was looking worse for wear I decided it was time for the girl to get a full make over.
