  1. You cannot modify a car to make it emit more emissions than standard nor are you allowed to make it noisier than standard 3.1 Legislation Operation of this procedure relies on the use of 2 offences: Silencer/ exhaust system altered to increase noise – Reg. 54(2) The Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986; Avoidance of excessive noise – Reg. 97 The Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986. In summary, vehicle exhausts must not be altered or replaced in a manner which increases the noise above that emitted by the type approved exhaust fitted by the manufacturer. In any case the sound emitted by an exhaust fitted to a standard car must not exceed 80dB.
  2. Think you mean Construction and Use , this is the same legislation that covers many modified parts like HFC's, exhausts and spoilers , some people like to pick and choose what laws they will follow and ignore
  3. Adrians gearbox ended up in my old zed , I felt it was awful when in drive , in full manual it was ok if you like hard positive shifts all the time , but barely functioned as an conventional auto and was the reason I sold the car
  4. Like many many parts fitted to zeds , wouldnt stop me provided it was safe
  5. http://www.370zhitch.com/ You can get towing hitches in the US
  6. Never been a fan of those power meters but you may need the boost controller depending on what boost you are running. One boost controller is pretty much the same as another . The grid thing is a torque splitter for the 4wd system and can actually cause issues on the R33 and R34 they are more suited to the R32
  7. The 370z auto shifts slightly quicker than the manual on average , ie in a manual 1-2nd is fast but 2-3rd is slower . Yes as said it will shift down as you slow to prevent the car from stalling As said a remap does help liven it up
  8. Sounds like an air leak , check everything you removed when doing the plugs
  9. I doubt it will really , most of their income came from advertising , and advertisers pay depending on the amount of users and therefore exposure they get . Its a viable business model and how most other companies work ie Imgur, Google, Facebook,etc Facebook makes $1billion per quarter in advertising alone I'm expecting someone else will come along shortly and offer a free service based on the old model, there was no point offering the same as the market leader before I really dont understand the decision unless PB really think that take up will make them more money than the adverts did , which i doubt
  10. I wonder how much money they'll make from people desperate to get their photos back. Nothing you can download them
  11. Its a shame about photobucket they could simply use adverts , it always was ok before and you only needed to pay originally when you had an awful lot of stuff on there Its been pretty much unusable for ages anyhow shame really
  12. Those seats look like recaros out of the old Capris
  13. Yeah they arent what they were and the XE is pretty poor imo , my Skoda is nicer inside
  14. Stock gearbox in the vid . They are improved with a remap I know Jez at Horsham can tweak a few things . They arent bad as autos go and maybe a tad faster in manual mode but that could be all in my mind , downshifts are fast and crisp with rev matching . However they are no DSG or even up there with the latest ZF boxes but they are better than most Not a bad video here either but its all down to personal preference
