    Sat Nav Disc

    Hi All Does anybody know of anywhere cheaper than Nissan to upgrade the Nav? My 2010 still has the original version, which is getting rather outdated... Cheers in advance! Adam
  2. Sure, the kit I bought is - https://www.torqen.uk/nissan/370z/brakes/pack-deals/13293-370z-stoptech-fr-brake-discs-and-pads-pack-slotted-akebono.html Pads themselves - Front - https://www.torqen.uk/nissan/370z/brakes/pads/1096-370z-hawk-performance-ceramic-pads-front-akebono-sport-hb601z626.html Rear - https://www.torqen.uk/nissan/370z/brakes/pads/1097-370z-hawk-performance-ceramic-pads-rear-akebono-sport-hb602z545.html
  3. No worries, I researched for a while before making the choice, so hopefully can help someone out, and you were extremely helpful when buying. The names Adam, surname begins with P. Bought the set up early Jan.
  4. As they've been on the 370 for just over 1k now, thought I'd do a review of my new discs and pads. It took my a lot of researching and reading to choose, so hopefully this will help somebody along the way! I went for StopTech Slotted Rotors, and Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads to replace the OEM set up that I'd had on the car for 18 months and about 10k miles. The standards were on the car when I bought it, and I found them to be OK, but when pushing the car, they overheated quite quickly and weren't as sharp as I'd want them to be, so opted for the upgrade. I did quite a
  5. Big fan of the CS's. Had them in my Clio 197, one of the nicest seats I've sat in, really supportive and having done a few trips to the ring, and frequent 180 mile motorway runs, never had a problem. I'm always on the lookout for a decent pair for the 370, they hold a high price tag though!

    I need tyre help.

    I'm being pathetic I know, but after searching long and hard, I can't seem to find anywhere that does what I need or matches, or makes sense, as I've been looking at a million websites for a million hours and now my brain has gone to mush. Rears 275/35/19 and fronts 245/40/19 or 245/35/19 if I go with MPS4S MPS4S - fronts only in 245/35/19, is anyone else running this? £920 seem about right price wise? MPSS, can't seem to find anywhere that does both the fronts and the backs at the same time. RE050A's there's about different compounds 96y, 94y et
  7. Just ordered a replacement and it arrived damaged Any one have a 370z, drivers side tail light for sale? Cheers Adam
  8. Thanks, I think I will do that. Yes all seems fine when im driving the van so im sure its not the phone. Mine has just started doing this, 2010 model though. Let me know what the dealer says, would be interested to see if it's a simply fix.
  9. Yep, whenever I see a Z and have time I flash and wave, most people respond, it's nice!

    Sorry Grammar isn't a strong point of mine.
  11. Hiya It's new tyre time for the 370, and I'm wondering what way to go. Now, the front two have plenty of life left, the rears have about 1-2k, but I want them replacing as they're to low for my liking. I'm currently on Bridgestone Potenza RE050a's all round. I've always stuck to the same tyre all the way round, so am I better off with Potenzas again, instead of putting the new Michelin MPS4 (that's probably wrong, but you know what I mean...) on the back? I think I know the answer, but I need someone who knows more to tell me! If it helps, I do about 5k a year, mainly dry weather d
  12. Dream exhaust, but not ready for it yet! Send me a PM if you do decide to sell spacers and springs, I'd be interested in those for sure dependent on price
  13. That's what I've been reading on a few forums. Had it up on a ramp last night, nothing untoward, no leaks, no seized pulleys, belts etc. Nothing stuck, no plastic bags. In fact, it was quite tidy underneath!
  14. Don't think so no, belt at the front seems to be running fine with no noise or anything. Whether it makes a difference, the smell is more prominent on the passenger side of the car.
