  1. So sorry this has happened to you, utter rats. Sounds like the police are not much better either.... What gets me now, is how your insurance are classing this as an At Fault claim ? Surely theft would be a non fault claim, you didn't hand them the damn keys.
  2. I'd have been having serious words with Mr (or Mrs) Instructor.....
  3. What can you do on the prices of the Nismo carbon bits ? Looking at: Mirror cover (interior) Sill Guards (Scuff/Kickplates) Additionally: Evo-R Carbon rear strut bar cover Real Japan Steering wheel - red and black ultra Suede Shall we say 1k for the lot ?
  4. Tasty collection of stuff, kinda wish I still had the 350
  5. Only thing I never liked about those was the front arches, just way too much gap. Had they done a lower cut on it then it would be perfection in a retro shell. Clio V6 meets Nans car meets Testarossa. Madness
  6. Is no one at the shop older than you able to get 1 day insurance on it and pick it up ?
  7. Sounds about right, I knew it was peanuts
  8. Don't care if they make it £3000 a year, im keeping mine and doing all I can to offset the green fleet
  9. Ouch! I get the low tax bracket on the 370 £160 ish a year
  10. Damn right, that crusty bird @*!# is lethal
  11. @12 mins or so..... But worth a watch, everything has its price too
  12. Main areas were where the quarter panel meets the sill infront of the rear wheels, over the arches filler cap area. Anywhere dirt and or water can pool really. Usually find seaside cars are the ones to avoid, salt kills everything As for insurance, you will find the purchase price has little to no influence of annual cost, a 2k Z will cost the same as a 9k Z its the up keep that will differ massively. Other things to look for are Oil level, regular services etc etc but I don't think they will be an issue on that one, seems to have had a loving home. Happy hu
  13. How much depends how you have it done, cutting them out and replacing them isn't cheap. Just sanding back filling and paint is cheaper, but it will comeback again. But to hazard a guess, either way you're looking at £600-1500 with paint and labour.
  14. From the sounds of the ad, its been quite well looked after. Good tyres on it, CSC done and braided lines so not been maintained on pennies over pounds and seems a genuine example for its age. He mentions the rear arches are starting to go again so they may need cutting out and new welding in so factor that into your budget. Other than the usual used car buying advice, its one that is probably worth viewing. Read through the buyers guide one here, go over the car thoroughly and don't be afraid to walk away. 5-7k Z's always pop up for sale
  15. Clarification on the EcuTek connect, that allows you to BT to a iPad or smart phone to control the map selection, TC settings etc. Not the actual map or license ?
  16. Going off that valuation, if I park the Nismo now. In 15 years I can ask 100k for it
  17. A member with a similar name might be of help to point you in the right direction @ZMANALEX
  18. Not much help for the battery issue, but if the steering lock is starting to fail. Pull the fuse for it asap
  19. Spotted both driving past the Holiday Inn in Basingstoke this week. The 350 sounded lovely, could hear you rolling on the throttle up the road
  20. Try @ZMANALEX Sure he will have something
  21. Spotted about 9.05 Leigh bypass at the lights. Tidy looking 350
  22. Sorry should have clarified, its the same unit just one of them, unified meter/AC Amp. Pretty much everything online is pointing at that being the issue or the wiring associated with it. Some have had issues after installing aftermarket audio etc but they were cutting into it for 12v ? Other than that unit and fuses is it possible the cluster is faulty ? Could turn in to one of those you just keep throwing money at parts to try and diagnose :/
  23. From a bit of searching, think its fuse 6 maybe Listed as battery 10amp electrical parts. As you said though, 2 units in the aircon that can cause this too. For the bad earth/electrical issue start with the obvious, test the battery and the connections are good.
  24. Have you checked the fuse ? Think there is one in the foot well that does all the cluster. Not marked up as instruments though.
  25. Had one of these on mine, sounds decent but was a nightmare to fit. Took a good 4 hours and a lot of heating and bending to get it sat right. It just depends how fussy you are on getting it perfect
