    Stunning Black 350Z with Many Extras

    Cheers bud ...... will break my heart to see her go...... But have to move on...... I do anything up to 3K per month driving, so by the time I get home Friday night, I am just too knackered to consider any more driving.
  2. 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. So here goes........... Nissan 350Z GT UK Specification Registered: September 2005 (Cheaper Tax) Colour: Black Engine: V6 3.5L circa Mileage: 53,752 miles 10 Months M.O.T – Fly’s through each year with no advisories Keys: 2 with full control and fobs, + 1 Service Key Original factory fitted items: ABS Alarm Air Conditioning & Full Climate control Driver & Passenger airbags (Dash, Seats, Side Impact, Curtain) Electric mirrors Electric windows Front fog lights Headlight washers Height adjustable driver’s seat PAS Remote locking & Central Locking Space saver spare wheel Steering wheel rake adjustment Traction control Audio remote (Steering wheel controls) Cruise control Electric driver`s seat Electric passenger`s seat Heated seats with variable control Engine Bay: MotorDyne 5/16”Plenum Spacer Polished Plenum Top Cover Berk Tech Polished intake pipe Pop Charger Air Filter Custom “Z” Chrome Dipstick Handle Custom “Z” fluid caps in Candy Apple Red Custom Battery and Fluids Covers in Candy Apple Red Underside of bonnet in high gloss Candy Apple Red Genuine Carbon slam panel in Candy Apple Red Nissan Engine Cover in Candy Apple Red Genuine carbon Exhaust: Invidia Gemini Catback system with Titanium Rolled Tips Berk Tech High Flow Sports Cats Custom Cat Brace by Falcon Engineering Bodywork: 2006+ Bonnet (with bonnet bulge) – Purchased brand new from Nissan & Custom Spray Job Tarmac Sportz Roof Spoiler Strosek Boot Spoiler which incorporates the original Spoiler Black Gloss Nissan Badges Full front end respray July 2016 Full paint correction – July 2016 SiRamik SC15 Glasscoat Sealant – July 2016 Running Gear: Wheels: 19” Nissan 370z Rays Forged Wheels with original 370z Wheel nuts 20mm spacers on front wheels Eibach Pro -30mm springs Additional: Moped Mark chromed core brace with custom 350Z logo Tarmac Sportz strut brace SGS Heavy Duty Boot Lifters Genuine Nissan Boot Poppers Hydraulic Bonnet Lifters UpRev Licence – Remapped by RS-Tuning Leeds.

Sound & Electronics: Genuine Nissan rear LED Lights Front clear running LED's DSpec Throttle Controller Pioneer AVIC-F900BT headunit with Satellite Navigation & Hands-free Car Phone Alpine SPR-60C Component Speakers Genesis Profile 4 Amplifier – rebuilt and customised by “Amp Doctor” 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. Remarks: 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. Photobucket Link Pictures to wet your appetite Any questions, please dont hesitate to PM me. If you want to discuss further, drop me a pm and I will either phone you, or provide my mobile number/email address.

  3. 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.
  4. Yep Christmas Pressie for someone
  5. 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.
  11. 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.

    Snap on thermal imager

    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.
