  1. Thanks Alex....... just thought I would make someone's Christmas , also I only wanted to get back what I paid out ...... so now we are both happy..... Merry Christmas to you and the family.
  2. Yep Christmas Pressie for someone
  3. Sorry all, Mark (Suprawookie) jumped on these like greased lightning. SOLD SUBJECT TO FINAL PAYMENT I have an excellent condition pair of headlights, these are the updated 2006+ revision, genuine Nissan, and come complete with all bulbs, ballasts, etc. There are no broken clips, chips or anything like that. I purchased these mid 2017 with the intention of fitting them to my 2005. These fit the earlier models without modification, and give the front end a modern like, with the advantage of Bi-Xenon, so greater light output on the dark nights. Only reason I am selling these and other bits from my collection, is that due to work commitments I just dont get the opportunity to drive the Zed anymore, made worse by just taking delivery of a nice "Grand Sport" ...... Yes I know its a work car, but still very nice :-) Looking for £500 incl Secure delivery. I am based in Darlington, and happy for any local enthusiasts to come and view. I also travel extensively throughout the UK, so may be possible to drop off at a meeting point. Other Hi-Res images available for any potential buyers. I am aware its a bad time of year for this sort of stuff, so as long as we can sort a deposit, I am willing to hold on till the Start of January. Thanks for looking

    Gearbox repairs

    Gearboxes can be a right nightmare without the correct tools, gauges and know-how. I know many a mechanic who avoids them like the plague and leaves them to the expert..... Just make sure you are prepared before undertaking this task.

    Cheap Halfords Advanced socket set £10.62

    Odd you mentioning this. I have the 200 piece set Halfords Advanced, and the small ratchet went on me, took it back and they said it excluded moving parts. Also told me I needed to produce my original receipt. Last night when I saw this ad, it prompted me to email Halfords about this. This morning I got a response from their customer care team, who have contacted my local branch and advised them they were wrong to turn me away, they say: Please accept my sincere apologies for this concern. Halfords prides itself on offering a range of high quality products and services, and any concerns expressed by our customers are treated very seriously. I can confirm that your Halfords Advanced Socked Set does include a Lifetime Guarantee and the store should have honoured this with or without receipt. I have contacted the store and advised them of the incorrect advice you were given and they will be willing to exchange your item upon your next visit. Which I think was dam good of them to respond on a Sunday, and give the branch a ticking off. I shall be down there tomorrow with a big smile, changing the duff ratchet...... and I wont even say "told you so"

    [SOLD]OEM 370z wheels for sale

    These do look fantastic on the 350, I actually think they are better suited to the 350 than the 370. You MUST use the OEM 370 Wheel nuts.
  9. We use Britannia and have done for years, both of our cars are covered plus we have personal cover and my daughters car is registered on the account, gives us full at home, continental, and whilst we are in other cars, costs us just over £100 a year, which I think is good for peace of mind.... Daughter has used the service in the past, and as soon as they know elderly, disabled or children are present, they are there within 30 mins. Nice clean trucks as well, which is a bonus if you are unfortunate enough to have to be recovered...... My wife did..... Twice... Blowing her MR2 engine twice on the rollers..... she is now banned from power shoot outs :-)

    HR bonnet in black

    as a general rule it is, some have managed to get a bit more discount due to relationship with the dealer. Mine came out at a tad over £280 with VAT and delivery to my local branch - They did give me a decent discount for being in the forum. Took them 24hrs to get it and it came well packed, although I left all packing with them and it fitted in the back of my Mondeo without problem. It meant I had a good base to start with. Definitely the best route to go for the HR bonnet.

    HR bonnet in black

    The honest answer is...... it will be easier to purchase direct from Nissan. They are under £300 for a brand new one, and I am sure there must be someone in Manchester can do a reasonable spray job at a reasonable price.....cash in hand Loads of users have asked the same thing over the years, and always end up buying a new one. At least you are guaranteed a perfect bonnet.

    Yea I was impressed by it, I've been using a laser pointed thing that gives you a reading but this seems a lot more detailed! What's your sons business called? He is Mobile Eco Tuning ..... well thats the mobile side of the business where he has around 5 vans on the road covering the South, but he has opened a technical workshop as well in Weston Supermare, from there he does all the electrical/electronic work for a lot of the main dealers, also involved with Theo Paphitass and his racing cars..... among a few Dose he do training courses? I was looking into getting involved in the remapping market, there is more use for it these days, especially with the modern Diesel engine, DPF deletes etc. It's persuading my boss that he will get left behind if he doesn't keep up with the technology that's the hard part! Hi Bud, yes he does. The 4 or 5 vans he has on the road are franchise of his own business and he does all the training, vehicle kitting out, etc etc. The guys he have doing are doing more than well enough ;-) If you want to know more, drop me a pm and I will let you have his phone number. They dont really do any of the "Grease Monkey" stuff, its all electrical/electronics. He does stuff all over the world.

    My son has his own diagnostics/electronics business down South, they have been using these for around a year now, not the snapon one, this is another FLIR device, they use it for diagnostics on batteries, wiring, starter motors, etc as it picks up the hot spots immediately. I forget the make they use, but he is a main supplier for them and all the garages are snapping them up, fantastic diagnostics tool.
  15. Normally they are fitted with plain black plastic sill covers, and the metal one's are aftermarket.
