  1. One or two 350z coupes in my area but i've not seen a 370 for a while. Roadsters are few and far between, think mine is the only one in the area. Love the drive up to Alston then over the top to the lakes. We do have some good roads up here.
  2. Hi and welcome along. I'm also Northumberland (Cramlington) Will look out for you. Car looks great by the way!
  3. I repaired a very small tear of about 5mm in my roof last summer using Stormsure tape. I put the tape on the inside of the roof and it seems to be holding up well. You'll pick it up dead cheap on E Bay. Might be worth a try....
  4. I would say get it fixed professionally as soon as possible. The roof material is less than .7mm thickness.
  5. Just for info, the roof panels on all Nissan motors are the only outer panel which are pressed from uncoated material. All other outer panels have a zink coating. So the secret is to touch up any stone chips as soon as pos... Reason for being uncoated material is cost reduction and the fact it is a low corrosion risk panel.
  6. I was half a dozen cars behind you going past the Toby. Didn't see the black one though.
  7. Hi, When I push my 05 DE to between 5 and 6000 revs i've started to get a sudden loss of power. Revs drop back to 4000 then its away again. Cam positions sensors perhaps? Runs perfect the rest of the time. Smooth tick over, easy start up etc...
  8. It looks amazing mate. Very Subtle! Well done..
  9. Seem to be some very cheap work being done around the country! It cost me over 220 quid just for the parts plus another 340 quid for the labour. All genuine Nissan parts by the way.
  10. Got my car booked in at JM Imports for the end of the week. Ive bought all the fluids and parts for the following work. Enging oil and filter change. Aux belts to replace. Spark plug change. Coolant change. Gearbox and diff oil change. Brake and clutch fluid change. Check brakes. Give the car a full check over. Quote is £350/£400. Full days work at £50.00 an hour. Then it going in to have the wheels powder coated on Monday. That's another £300! Expensive couple of weeks! but that should be it sorted for a while.
  11. http://www.goodwoodsportscars.co.uk/ This fella is still importing cars from Japan.
  12. The rear of the sills and the rear wheel arches rust! Other than that they are bullet proof! Still plenty of good ones around. I wouldn't touch one that had a wheel arch repair. The filler can crack and the rust will probably come back at some point. Still miss my old Mk1 MX5!!
  13. Should sell dead easy! Good luck. Cant believe I've not seen you around.
  14. I had a bumper repair done at the Paint N Place in Bebside near Blyth just before Christmas. Paint match is excellent and its a top job at a good price. Not sure if he does weld repairs but might be worth a run up for a chat. Guys called Gary. If you want to see the quality of his work youre welcome to have a look at my car.
  15. The car looks fantastic! Will look out for you when driving along the coast.
  16. Hi and welcome. Another blue roadster here. Im in Cramlington.
  17. Insured mine yesterday too. For comparison, my car is an 05 and completely standard. Im 54 and have seven years no claims. Set the milage to 6k. Didnt take any no claims protection or legal cover. So bare bones fully comp cover. I paid £319.00. Went with Direct Line. I think thats a fair price. And its about 70 quid more than I paid to insure the Boxster S last December. Oh.. and I have three points.
  18. Nice looking car! Im just down the road in Cramlington. Often head up to Alnwick, Seahouses or Rothbury. Will look out for you on sunny days. Think we've seen the last of those for a while though!
  19. I went from a Boxster 986S to the Z. Porsche was fine. Didnt give me any real problems in the 18 months I had it. But i did worry about the IMS and the mass of other faults they can come up with! So I went from sleepless nights worrying about the Boxster to the Z. Made the right decission. Loved the Boxster but love the Z more! Better looking and no major worries. Z for me every time! Miss my old mk3 mx5 more than the Boxster. The mx5 was like a go cart!
