  1. I’m sure it’s points and fine. You can only do the points opt out every two years by paying fine and paying for the course.
  2. Hi. 2010 370z has irritating tinny rattle on idle. Likely to be heat shield around cats. I’ve put jubilee clips around previously but I think the constant expansion and contraction has loosened them off. i think I will cut the rusty old shields off completely. I secured all the other rattletrap bits last year, but I will check them. Is there anything I could bind the Cats with to prevent them setting fire to the fields of Surrey? I’m not sure exhaust wrap can take the cat temperatures. Advice welcome please.
  3. I have a shudder felt through the steering wheel when braking from speed. I suspect new discs are needed. Sadly I'm a bit past the age where I can do it myself and I wondered if anyone knew what cost I should be looking for to get front discs and pads done these days. Thanks
  4. As I understand it the product stays liquid and as the tyre spins the stuff gets thrown against the inside of the tread by centrifugal force. If you get a puncture the air in the tyre mixes with the liquid and the carbon fibre content in the liquid seals the puncture instantly and permanently. https://bikeseal.co.uk/ let me know what you think
  5. Jack94 Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.
  6. Not sure which category but here’s an interesting one. After a recent puncture I decided to get the wonder product BikeSeal-or AutoSeal. It splashes about in the tyre and instantly seals punctures and is permanent, non toxic, non chemical, vegan etc etc. What can go wrong. The website confuses me as it jumps around from BikeSeal to AutoSeal and often mixing the two on the same page. The two products are in fact exactly the same. Applied product. Took for run. Great disappointment. Between 80 and 90 a bad judder through steering on certain surfaces. Cont
  7. They do one for the 350 as well. The one on my previous car, a 350 wasn’t as bad.
  8. Here it is. Not my car, far too shiny and rust free
  9. I have just got back from a visit to Tarmac Sportz in Derby. I ordered one of their special W braces, my own one having crumbled to rust. I wanted them to fit it as I anticipated the bolts shearing off and my fears were not without foundation as three broke off in the process. It was a fair old journey from me in Kent, but worth it as my appointment involved no waiting, the car went up on the ramps straight away. The old brace was in a shocking state, badly rusted, it had been clobbered by the previous owner and by myself recently (see picture). The new W brace is very robust and we
  10. 370z Rear Axle Spindle. (the one that clicks) I am a bit puzzled that the 2010 car with the silly tab lock, that doesn't work torques up to 105Nm where as the non tab lock version torques up to 185Nm seemingly using the same axle and nut. In 2011 they then put it at 180Nm. Can anyone explain or correct me. Thanks
  11. Yes many others including my previous 350 have rusted beyond belief. ive seen the Torquen one and if it's the only option so be it. Also seen some more innovative ones for the 350 but the brace is different on the 370 Thanks
  12. Thanks, I have been looking at those so your endorsement and comments are really helpful.
  13. Like many others my W brace (or bracket) about midships under the car is completely rusted and bashed by a speed hump I should think. Does anyone recommend a good source for a replacement or alternative other than buying through Nissan. I've seen some on M1motorsport and possibly eurospares might be worth a call. They seem quite expensive for a bit of low grade steel that seems to rot overnight..
  14. Yes that's a good thought. I don't suppose anyone repairs these things.
