  1. Looks awesome buddy! Congrats. Would love to own a Porsche at some point in life too.


    Have always said I’d keep the zed forever but 911 has always been a dream car, and unfortunately can’t have both.


    Keep looking 997.2s but prices have gone up quite a bit where I can’t justify it right now 😔

    Well i know there are some ridiculously priced veilsides out there (14-18k) but my son has just started driving and we don't have the room for 4 cars so i would be happy with £6500 for a quick sale as i think i could get pretty close to that amount breaking it.

    I might be wrong, but that's got have a pretty decent of selling reasonably quickly at that price!!

    As i don't live in London i may be wrong but i believe the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zones means that if your car is compliant, then no, you don't have to pay. Not sure if that replaces the congestion charge though or if it was on top of. I'm sure someone here can confirm


    WOW at the 370z insurance premiums! :scare:

    that's right, congestion charge still applies. The ULEZ charge is different and separate but as others have said the 350z is compliant so we don't need to pay the ULEZ charge. Only the congestion (which isn't cheap)!!!

  4. Hi all, probably a silly question, but have a leak into driver's side footwell and looks like the culprit is the failed door seal/weather strip.


    Is there anyway of getting the part cheaper than £240-ish from Nissan for a bit of plastic (part number 76860CD000)?

  6. Hi guys, might be a silly question, but have been told I need a new bonnet :(


    I seem to have in my mind that it was possible to get a new DE bonnet from Nissan directly and it wasn't stupidly expensive? 


    Am I dreaming this up? Does anyone know who I need contact at Nissan to get one if it's possible?

    What I will have is a blanking panel which covers the 3 x switch apertures so if my memory serves me well the switches have to be removed so that the blanking panel is a good fit.

    Library pictures from a DE below to give you an idea.



    Thanks Alex. Sounds like it is what I'm looking for. Yes, did expect the switches to have to be removed first. 


    As long as it is to fit the facelift interior then it should work. 


    How much are you after for it?

    I have the blanking panels that cover the 3 switch apertures in the centre console it that is what you are referring to.

    Might be a plan to post up a picture so that we are on the same page.


    Thanks Alex. That might well be what I'm after. Don't have my zed with me but have googled this picture where someone has changed the switches but it shows the area I'm talking about just below the gear knob. 


    I don't want to change the switches like the picture has done but rather a one piece cover that covers over all 3 switches so that none of them are on show. Hope that makes sense.




    Let me know if what you have fits the bill.



  9. Hi guys, apologies in advance as this has probably been discussed many times in the past.


    I have facelift interior and aftermarket seats, so the heated seat switches area is redundant for me and annoys me now and again. 


    I've seen quite a few people change the use of these switches but that's not necessary for me. 


    What I'd like is to get a cover plate to just cover over the whole area so no switches are showing. Or even better still, turn it into a cubby of some sort. 


    I'm sure the latter is more difficult, but I can't find anything regarding the first solution.


    Is this something anyone else has done and can they recommend me what I can get to cover up the switches please?


    Thanks in advance for any comments. All very welcome. 

  10. So! Have decided on the v1 skirts and hopefully going to get the work done at RT-Performance in the coming weeks - very excited to say the least.


    Decided to go red for a respray.


    My next dilemma is for the v2 front bumper, whether to have the lip sprayed in red or have a contrast in black. Will it look odd with just the front lip in black? The side skirts will be red, as don't think I like the look of them going back! Will get the grill done in black, door handles as well. 


    Any thoughts and opinions very welcome!!

    Might be harder with the design of the v1 skirts but shouldn’t be impossible. You’d need to check the lower edge. Would probably look better with flat side steps rather than these but would look awesome if you can manage 

    Cheers buddy. Will take a look into that at some point.

    As in the actual CS rear bumper, not the Bottom line pieces? Yea.. that might look a bit odd.

    Yup, that's right, the actual CS rear bumper. So yes, it'll probably look a bit odd!! 


    Oh well, happy to settle for the V1, it's not like they won't look good.
