  1. Michelin got back to me saying that PS4's should be back in stock early July so will wait for that and see what that does to prices, otherwise i'll probably just suck it up and go with TyreLeader
  2. So they do! But ooof, that price!
  3. Not just me struggling to find tyres then!
  4. 285/35/19 just don't exist for MPS4's any more it seems. I have even talked to Michelin about it and they don't know when or if they will do them again.
  5. I am looking to replace the stock Dunlops that came with my 2018 Nismo. The sizes currently are 245/40R19 285/35R19 I have seen a lot of people talking about Michelin PS4 and PS4 S, but it doesn't seem like they do one matching the size of the rears I have currently. What's confusing me is that if I let blackcircles or where ever suggest tyre size based off the reg, then it comes back with correct size for the fronts but shows as 275/35R19 for the rears. Now I don't know if this is just wrong, or if the Nismo has different tyre sizes to the other models or what, but what I do know is I don't have a foggiest how tyre calculators work! So option one is to use a 275/35R19 or 275/40R19 if they will fit, or to look for something else.... (Hankook Ventus Evo 2's look somewhat similar for a similar price). Really need some advice here!
  6. Well, me, that's why I'm asking There are loads of photos taken of the cars both on track and in the pit lane on our track days. If I can get something that means a) it looks alright and b) I don't need to mess about with the cargo net and carpets in the boot to get to, then that's a win to me. I agree it's a pretty small problem though so not looking to spend £100's solving it
  7. I've been looking at getting either a tow hook or strap for my 370Z that looks a bit nicer than the standard OEM one does for when I'm taking my Nismo on track. The problem seems to be the unusual M22 fitting that Nissan uses, compared to the vastly more common M16. Does anyone have any idea where I could look to find something that would fit? Thanks
  8. Can the bar behind the seats in my MK2 Nismo be used to attach a racing harness? The Recaro seats certainly have the cutouts for a harness so was wondering how much work would be involved putting on in? Have a possible track day coming up at the end of Feb. Also any recommendations on harnesses?
  9. They disputed that also saying that they have no evidence of seats being replaced under warranty since 2017
  10. I've been as civil as I can be - I'm tempted to post the email chain up here - but they have been disinterested and dismissive the entire time. The fact is, the damage isn't that bad and could be repaired pretty cheaply (I could probably do a reasonable enough job with stuff i could get from Halfords). My concern is that it has happened so fast which doesn't give me confidence that it is fit for purpose (i.e. years of ownership, not months). Doing some maths; if you combine the sales data online which as of May put the number of 370Z sold in the UK at 74 (https://www.topgear.com/car-news/opinion/why-nissan-370z-marks-end-era) and Autocar's statistic that approximately half of all 370Z's sold in the UK are now the Nismo (https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/nissan/370z-nismo), suggests that there were approximately 37 2018 Nismo's on the road when my car first started showing signs of wear on the seat. If you then take the number of people that have shown photographic proof of the same wear to their 2018 Recaro seats in this thread alone (3), then that accounts for > 8% of all UK 2018 370Z Nismos sold this year having the same problem...
  11. So Nissan have dug their heels in and have refused to accept that it is unreasonable wear and tear. I provided them the pictures of the wear that you guys have shared with me, but they have said that each case was different and doesn't point to a larger problem and that the wear must have been my fault. I guess my next step is to contact the finance company and deal with it that way, but the unpleasantness of dealing with Nissan customer service has been the real kicker here - despite the efforts I have made to provide them with all the details, pictures and evidence they have asked for, they have quickly dismissed all of it, not even inspected the car in person and continued to blame me for it making it abundantly clear that they would not cover it in whole or in part under warranty or out as a gesture of goodwill.
  12. I tried, the dealership took a look at it and forwarded the case onto the Nissan Warranty department who came back saying they weren't going to cover it as they didn't feel there was a manufacturing issue. I've been contesting that decision and it seems like a fair number of people here have been having similar issues with the wear on their leather so there's clearly a bigger issue than just a one-off with my car (which is what Nissan has been saying to me). Will be talking to them again on Monday.
  13. Nissan have gone very quiet on this - no response from them today. I doubt I'll hear anything over the weekend now so will call them up on Monday and will post how I got on. If others have seen this issue, please post about it so we can see how widespread it actually is
  14. Thanks for this. I've gone back to them - will see what they say.
  15. Thanks for the reply. Nissan UK customer services are aware I am a forum member here and asked me to see if anyone else had reported a similar issue so your response is just what i needed to go back to them with
