  1. Wow, looks and sounds awesome! Good idea on the cat. I need to do similar with my mini and that might be an easier approach than I was thinking. Keep up the good work, looking forward to on-road videos once its MOT`d.
  2. We are fortunate and unfortunate in that so much information is available online now. I am sure there some people whose research involves just looking on facebook. (and seeing only what facebook want you to see), but you can access thousands of medical research documents from sources like lancet, bmj, pubmed etc. Documents which have been peer reviewed by top medical professionals around the world. You can even view interviews with some of the most highly qualified & experienced Doctors / Professors in the world, people with 40 years experience in virology etc and hear what they think. The
  3. Here's my observations. I have been surprised by all the manipulation / filtering social media are doing to make sure that people can only see what the tech companies want them to see. Facebook / Youtube / Twitter all have said they will delete anything which doesnt agree with what they want people to think. Even posts by world reknown medical experts who are quoting actual facts get deleted. Google has always pushed content it wants to the top of its searches but is going even further now. So called "Fact Check" websites are popping up and expect people to believe that they are co
  4. Wear wise, I run MPS4S on my 997 turbo and got 25,000 miles out of the rears. The fronts are only half worn at that mileage. Pretty amazing really when the previous set of P-Zero`s only lasted 14,000 miles and were down to the canvas all round.
  5. Where the straps are riveted to the support bars started pealing back on mine. The "fix" which the Nissan main dealer did on mine was to add rivets to it. I suspect maybe someone has used a cable tie on yours to do similar. Id be tempted to replace it.
  6. Tell me about it. I washed my 911 Tuesday, first time in months and I looked out yesterday and it was covered in dust again. Less than 24 hours. It does sit outside on the drive though, but so annoying. I dont remember having this issue with my other black cars, so not sure why it seems to happen all the time now. The dust is nearly like sand or sawdust.
  7. Google own Waze, so I suspect the alerts are probably exactly the same. I've not used the google maps nav for a very long time, but does it also show accidents, broken down cars & hazards also? If so google are probably using the Waze datafeed.
  8. Lorry drivers do this all the time. I always wondered how do they know how much or how many times they can re-cut the tread before the tyre goes BANG!
  9. I had an issue on mine when i was only a few years old with how those fabric straps were attached to the metal rods which go over your head. On mine, the tension pulled the metal retaining bit back from the length of the bar. Nissan took it back and just riveted it back in place. Cheap & nasty fix but it seemed to help.
  10. Speed camera detectors these days are pretty much as waste of money. I have a Valentine One which ive had for as long as I can remember and is highly regarded as one of the best out there. Back in the "olden days" fixed speed cameras were all radar based and the Valentine happily picks them up from about 1/2 mile away and alerts you with virtually no false alerts. However, for the last 15 years or more all the new cameras like the Truvelo ones are all infra-red and so any radar based detector is useless against them. Thats fixed cameras. Mobile cameras are laser, and units like the
  11. I love my Cooper S, great fun car which you can just absolutely wring its neck. Mines probably about 220bhp with its mods and that feels just about right with its handling. Plus I can park it anywhere and not really worry about it.
  12. Guess it depends on which supplier your garage uses. ECP & CP4Less do them for £140 for the front ones, tarmac as above does them for £75. Ive no idea what Nissan charge for genuine ones but I suspect it would be a lot more.
  13. Some great pictures of my grey HR roadster on parkers website with he L66 UST plate on it.... https://www.parkers.co.uk/nissan/350z/roadster/review/
  14. My Twilight Grey 2007 HR Roadster was one of these promo cars with the LUST plate originally! I found a review online with loads of pictures of some bloke thrashing it around a track after I had bought it.
