  1. No, I just did what I do normally which was to go easy on them.
  2. My discs and pads are new but I didn’t bed them in properly as detailed on here, I just used them gently for a bit. ive been in touch with Abbey Motorsport and they think it might be excessive run out on the disc, they are going to measure it.
  3. I hope this thread is still live. I have a similar issue with vibration through steering when braking from 50mph and over. I had front discs and pads changed last year, after which the problem seemed to start. I’ve read on here that if the new rotors are not aligned perfectly it can cause a vibration. The garage I used may not have been up to the job - it’s a possibility. What do the wise say?
  4. Thanks for the tip on this. My daughter is in Cambridge I could combine a trip. Neil
  5. Thanks. I’m on the Kent Surrey border just inside the M25 at about 7 o’clock..
  6. Thanks for the link, it’s very interesting. The problem could be at the back end then even though the imbalance shakes the steering wheel. The rear disks were not changed when I did the fronts. I got the fronts done by a local garage so I have to assume they did them properly If the cause is at the back, there could be another element here. A while back I used ‘auto seal’ in the tyres (it’s not a gloop,it goes into a powder) and had all kinds of problems with the shakes afterwards. The manufacturers denied it caused the problems but eventually I bought new fronts, rebala
  7. Any ideas please. when I brake from 70 and over there is a bit of a shimmy through the steering, like a wheel off balance. I’ve changed the front tyres (Mitchelins) had them balanced several times. Tracking and tow in all checked and adjusted. i’ve had the disks and pads changed it’s just had its MOT, pass no problem. i’m a bit stumped
  8. That’s a really helpful guide. Many thanks.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Jack94 Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.
  14. 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
  15. They do one for the 350 as well. The one on my previous car, a 350 wasn’t as bad.
  16. Here it is. Not my car, far too shiny and rust free
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Thanks, I have been looking at those so your endorsement and comments are really helpful.
  21. 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..
  22. Yes that's a good thought. I don't suppose anyone repairs these things.
  23. 2010 370z has some seaping from the PS oil cooler. The curved end rather than the hose end which is strange. Maybe hit by a stone. Anyway I’m keeping an eye on it for now. What do you think, if it’s had it...a Nissan replacement or one of the non standard options I see around on eBay etc. Advice welcome. thanks
  24. 2010 370z exhaust original and rusty and quiet. Had res Cobra cat back on 350 but it was a bit droney A Scorpion cat back is fully guaranteed well thought of and just in budget and is appropriate for my advancing years (72) even if they don't come in beige. This is what my head tells me to get. My heart tells me to get Res Tarmac short tails because they sound so crisp and barky and I can pretend to be 25 again. They are a bit cheaper but don't include the centre section. But are they going to be too droney for the Memshib who will say "what the xxxx have you done
