  1. Yeh it seems as though the backing surround that holds the glass (and connects it to the wing mirror) was lost in the collision just like mine was. Z man Alex can send a brand new glass with the black plastic surround which will clips into the wing mirror.
  2. I'm very Happy with my Optima Red Top battery i bought from Tanya https://www.tayna.co.uk/brands/optima/ 815CCA and smaller than the OEM battery leaving plenty room in the bay. Have left car in airport parking lots for over 2 weeks in the coldest months of january/feb each year iv'e had the battery and car starts up straight away every time. Longest i left the car without starting was a month and even then it started fine.
  3. Hi All, It's time for me to get a major service on the Zed, including flush & replace coolant, brake/clutch fluid, gearbox and LSD oil, spark plugs, and timing chain too. i would normally go to horsham when i was in the south, but no longer there, was hoping someone could recommend a good garage in West Yorkshire that know their way around a zed. Thanks
  4. modified description. Leaving a functioning sound system in the car. price increased to reflect this.
  5. After a few great years of 350z ownership (since 2015) it's with a heavy heart that I've decided to sell up the car. My first every performance vehicle, this car has taught me so much about mechanics and driving and i'm really gonna miss it. '04 350z GT 108k miles w/ good history and paperwork. 2 keys and original Nissan leather wallet and handbook etc. The car comes as standard fitted with the GT pack consisting of: heated/electric leather seats (tan leather) cruise control, electric wing mirrors, VLSD (limited slip diff), Brembo brakes, parking sensors etc. The car has also been tastefully and subtly modified over the years, most of the mods are non-visible and exterior wise the car looks stock. £4100. Location Bradford. Non visible Mods: Miltek Cat back exhaust Berks hi-flow cats (done by Horsham dev) Up-Rev remapping (Horsham dev) DBA T2 Street Brake discs all around (Horsham dev) HEL braided brake and clutch lines (Horsham dev) Stoptech slave cylinder (Horsham dev) Superbro poly bushs on front (Horsham dev) JWT Air Intake (Horsham dev) Plenum Spacer (Horsham dev) Upgraded alternator (250amp) Optima red top battery Torqen metal undertray Doors, boot and boot lid have been sound deadened. Visible Mods: 350z GT4 edition wheels. Black, and have been hydro dipped in the past which is now fading (could do with a refurb really) Rear window limo black tint Rear quarter panels 70% tint Front side windows 50% tint D1 Spec carbon fibre gear knob. B pillars and petrol cap wrapped in 3M carbon fibre. Custom made sail panels that can fit large tweeters. Not really a mod I guess but the front bumper had a re-spray in 2017. Common wear items: Tyres - Michelin PS4 all round, rears replaced last October, fronts replaced only a couple months ago, loads of tread left all round. Spark plus – Replaced during big service in Sep 2016. All fluids were flushed and replaced at this time as well including gear box and LSD fluid. Clutch/flywheel – Replaced in 2016 with Excedy OEM spec Brake Pads – Ferodo pads all round, I’d say half worn on front, plenty left on the rears. Good to know: Oil and filter change every 6 months, using Fush titan race oil every time. Engine flush used on last two oil changes. Engine had a terraclean in 2017. One can of Cata-clean in the fuel tank every 8 months. Nothing but Shell V-Power and occasionally BP Ultimate/Tesco Momentum during my ownership. 70% Motorway miles during my ownership (London/Bradford round trips) Car has passed every MOT first time over its life. Modified sound system Right now the car has an audio system which consists of aftermarket 2 way front speakers and coaxial rear speakers (all Hertz mille Legend series) Powered by a 4 channel Hertz Amp in the glove box. The mid bass in the doors give plenty of bass therefore OEM subwoofer behind driver’s seat is still present but disconnected, I still have the OEM amp which you can reconnect in the boot if you wish. OEM Bluetooth receiver is missing but you can pick one up from the forum (but the head unit has apple car play and android auto anyway) Everything works but there is alternator whine coming through the speakers due to a blown internal fuse in the head unit, therefore a new head-unit would be good (can be found on gumtree pretty cheap and easy to install) Known Issues: Slight noise from front left wheel which needs wheel bearings replacing. Very minor scuff on rear bumper from the time I accidentally reversed (under 5mph) into a wall. Missing Nissan badge on front.
  6. Hi Alex...here are the extra pics
  7. PM'd him now, cheers
  8. Hi All, Came back to my car one evening to see my the glass pane lying on the floor and my wing mirror looking like this. Wondering if i can find a simple glass pane replacement or if i would have to replace the whole unit? It seems as though something from the glass pane clips in to the middle section of the housing from the pic, but there was nothing found around the car like that?? The unit still moves electronically using the toggle on the arm rest. any help is appreciated!
  9. Hi Ekona, I'm considering getting a 2008 Cayman S, (this one). I understand that they fixed the IMS bearing issue with these as they used a bigger IMS. are there any other things to consider with this model year.... boring pre purchase inspection still recommended ? thanks
  10. Whoa didn't realised this thread is from 2015 until i read all the way through. Sorry you had a bad experience Adrian but glad you're happy now. Did you ever buy another Porsche / consider buying in the future out of curiosity ? p.s. came across this thread as i am currently considering buying a 2008 Porsche Cayman
  11. My dream car, congrats and that is the best color!
  12. I never see other Z's in Bradford lol, where you guys hiding?
  13. Hi, I'm currently also after a pair of these as seen here If anyone has some that would be great, Adrian is also looking into it for me with the guys in USA who make them to get a price. Alternatively, and cheaper too perhaps, i have come across Visual ICE in south Yorkshire who has a ebay listings of £125/£199 where he will make door pods for any car to any specification, just have to leave your car / door cards with him for a a few days. one of the pictures on the listing seems to be of a 350z too with almost identical door pod to the wicked cas ones. See here.
