What have you done for your GT-R today?


Recommended Posts

Got my car back from Litchfield yesterday with a spangly new intercooler from a hardly used 2019 GTR (sadly they didn't have any of the upgrades in stock and I didn't want to wait with the CAT day fast approaching). A great deal  by Neil at Litchfield and not having spent a fortune, still leaves me the option to upgrade to a higher stage including new intercooler at that point.

So, to celebrate I've just spent 3 odd hours cleaning her. Started with Espuma wheel cleaner, then a good hose down and wash with Simoniz Car Wash, microfibre and thorough dry and then gave it the CPS Liquid Gold treatment (Ceramic protection with Carnuba in it) before applying with Chemical Guys tyre dressing. Quite pleased with the results ..........

With all this nice weather and despite my car being clean and sat in the garage, I decided to give her some TLC. So I've cleaned the wheels/tyres up, detailed her and then applied a Liquid Ceramic Wax

So was the intercooler the cause of the alarming warning light?

That is great news. 

ive been having “fun” with my windscreen change after a crack appeared.  Now on my 8th visit to get the auto light and wiper function working after they have had 3 attempts at changing it and a second windscreen. The idiots cut the wires and shorted it out blowing a fuse and causing no power to the OBD port and caused the heater control memory to be lost. 

Also had numerous attempts at getting new Vodafone trackers to pair with the car. They didn’t realise they had changed the frequency the remote works at!

5 year service and mot all went well with no surprises and got new Dunlop’s.

Yes it was mate. I had a look at the one that came off the car and you could see where it was cracked. So basically under max torque the various sensors knew the car wasn't getting the good stuff and went into 'take me home' mode.

Tested her thoroughly on the way back just to be sure :teeth:

That is the sort of fun you don't need Paul - sorry to hear of the problems fella.

Auto light and wiper sensor changed by Nissan Aldershot and fault finally sorted. Well done westway Nissan! They also had to re solder the wires that had been cut and incorrectly wired up by Autowindscreens Reading when they broke the plug then shorted it out and fused the car. 
Avoid Autowindscreens Reading. 
A few photos of there disgraceful workmanship enclosed.

Wow, that's ridiculous. Have you sent them a strongly worded letter I assume Paul? (Autowindscreens that is - well done to Westover)
