Bit of a sad time for me having finally decided its time to sell the Zed. Has nothing to do with needing the money or anything like that. Its down to work/life balance which is non-existent really.
I just dont get the time to drive the Zed, gets pulled out of the garage every week, engine run up and everything checked, then back in the garage. Maybe a quick run to work now and again, but nothing like she deserves. Couple of oil changes/services per year...... all to keep me happy.
I would hate to add up what I have spent on her, always ensuring she got the best I could afford. Been a member of the forum for a good few years, but alas the last couple of years its only been a case of looking at the forum every now and again.
So with heavy heart I have decided she must go to someone who can drive her and show her off to her best. I will be sad to let her go, but its just got to the point where I hate seeing her just sat in the garage.
Asking Price is £7950. Possibly some think on the high side, but I believe this reflects the standard of the car
Sale will include a full range of SiRamik care products to ensure the coating stays in its fantastic condition.

Mid 2016 having replaced the standard bonnet with the “Bonnet Bulge” bonnet of the 2006+ version, the whole front end and sides had a professional respray in original Nissan Black. This was a brand new bonnet supplied by local Nissan dealer.
3 weeks after this, the car underwent a full body correction over 3 days, which was finalised with SiRamik Glasscoat Sealant to preserve the gleaming bodywork.
Most servicing during ownership has been carried out at my son’s garage or with Falcon Performance who have a very high standard.
All MoT’s have gone straight through without advisories. The car is kept in the garage all the time and does not come out in bad weather. During ownership, I have averaged about 1000 miles per year.
Those who have seen the vehicle have described it as immaculate, both interior and exterior. Garages are generally blown away when they see the engine bay and how clean it is.
Clutch was replaced at 51,747 miles By Falcon Performance, this included:
· Genuine Nissan Clutch Kit (3 piece kit)
· New Dual-Mass Flywheel
· Genuine Nissan Release Fork
· Genuine Nissan Clutch Fork Clips
· Gearbox filled with MT-XY 75w/85 Gear Oil
· Molyslip Gearbox Protector
· VLSD Differential Fluid
There is a folder full of receipts, including the original service manual with all stamps, and the original leather folder with all the docs that come with it when you buy a new car. All receipts for parts and upgrades purchased are there, the list of receipts is endless.
BAD BITS – and every car has them, no matter what age they are.
There is a tiny 2mm mark on the driver’s door which you cannot see unless you really look
On the roof there is a couple of stone chips – nothing major and nothing that stands out
The wheels have some very minor kerb rash, again nothing that stands out, but previous owner had clipped them, and given the little miles it does, I never got around to it.
Rear view camera has been fitted and all cables from headunit have been ran through, it just needs the final phase of connection in the boot area.
The car has been lavished with the best I could afford no matter what it needed. It has genuinely spent its life in the garage out of the elements, and I believe this is reflected in the overall condition of the car, which many have described as immaculate. Always turn’s heads no matter where I take it, and the Invidia along with the Berk Cats give it a spine tingling sound whilst not being too loud. There is no droning at all from the exhaust, so motorway miles are an absolute pleasure.
The car is a pleasure to drive, whether a gentle cruise or “other”. Servicing has been kept up, either by my own hands, or via my son’s garage (Motor trade).
All major work has been carried out by Falcon Engineering, who is a member of the forum, and they have a very high standard, as many other owners will confirm.
It has not been driven during winter months or rainy periods, so has been kept away from road salt.
I honestly believe that the first person to see it, will buy it. Really is in top class condition, and I will be sorry to see it go, but I just don’t have time these days with my work commitments.
The asking price is probably a little higher than average, but I believe this reflects the high standard of the vehicle. I am in no hurry to sell, and it’s not a case of selling for the money.
Any viewing is welcomed, I am in Darlington, Co Durham (40mins South of Newcastle), we have a train station 5 mins away, and airport within 10 mins or Newcastle airport within 40 mins, very happy to collect anyone who wants to view. We are literally 2.1 miles off Jn 59 on the A1
Regarding test driving, I don’t have an issue with this, as long as anyone wanting to test drive has adequate insurance to cover not only any third party damage, but also damage to my vehicle (Fully Comp). Anyone serious about purchasing, can obtain “day insurance” exactly for this purpose.
All the pictures I have of the car going through the various stages of ownership are on my “Photobucket” account, I have broken them down into various sub-folders, i.e. Rims, Interior, Engine bay. So please make sure you have a good look at all photos.. Happy to provide any additional photos a potential buyer may want.
I have added a couple of photo's just to wet any appetites, but the bulk of the Hi-Res photo's are on my Photobucket pages, divided into sub folders, ie: Engine Bay, Correction, Interior Retrim, etc etc. So make sure if you browse the page, you also visit the sub-folders to get the true picture of how stunning this car really is.
I am happy to provide any additional photo's on request.
Pictures to wet your appetite
