  1. Off to Scotland she goes. I hope the new owner Andy enjoys her after recently selling his charged 350z.
  2. Nope, that is me done. I loved the power the Zed had, but never drove the car hard. I never go close to its top speed or anything. I hit 40 in Dec and just feel I have grown up a bit and after modifying cars to my taste for 16 years or so that I just wanted something I could leave alone (for the most part) and was newer.
  3. Something a lot more economical and green 😉
  4. Nice and clean, ready to go to its new owner up in Scotland. 5 1/2 years of ownership and I have enjoyed making this car my own.
  5. Reviving this thread. Centre Gravity worked their magic yesterday and the car is so much better. It feels a lot like the one I drove all those years ago. Its a lot stiffer, the car isn't skittish or light at the front any more, yet almost all the changes were done with the back wheels. It is now set up for the road rather than track, but it feels so much better on the motorway, a and b roads. Money well spent, but I wish I had heard of them years ago. After all of this the car goes on Saturday as I have sold it. I am happy the new owner will benefit, even though I won't. Conclusion is that a few small changes can add up to a massive change, but you need to visit the specialists. Specs attached. It won't suit everyone as we are all individual and want different things and each car is different.
  6. Deposit received l, please can an admin close this thread.
  7. Admin please can this be closed. I have accepted an offer from @Mark@Abbey m/s via the Facebook selling page, pending payment of a deposit.
  8. People have been selling them on ebay for up to £750. The value has dropped as the palladium value has dropped, but they still are going for £550 plus easily, I don't think condition matters as most are melted down.
  9. Hi, I have my old OEM Cats for sale in the 370z parts forum, but the ad has a red exclamation mark against it? Any idea what this means?
  10. 370z OEM Cats for sale. Used. These came off of my zed at around 65k miles. The heat shields are rusting away as you usually see with these, but the precious metals all look ok inside and its inside what matters 🙂 Located in Bournemouth, I really don't want to post these, they are heavy and fragile, but would post if buyer arranged courier and I could find a suitable box. £500
  11. I read today that they are introducing a new unleaded fuel, which will contain 10% bioethanol rather than the 5% in current unleaded fuels. There is an online checker on the gov.co.uk site and it states all Nissan engines are compatible. It will be interesting to see how the Zed performs with it and if there will be a super unleaded higher RON version. https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/emissions/what-is-e10-fuel-and-how-could-it-affect-you/ It's the first I had heard of it.
  12. I had the same problem recently after changing all 4 tyres. I found Autoglym intensive tar remover, a cloth and an old debit card. It took a while, but worked well.
  13. It effects the early ones up to around 2012/13 I believe. Mine is 2010 and I had to get it done. It was around £900 from memory.
  14. Ha, I will find that out later today, only drove it 2 mins back home yesterday.
  15. I think it was mainly because of the bolts being fitted as the old ones had seized. It was defo out before, but not that much!
  16. So today was the day I had the eibach camber and toe bolts fitted. Good work again by Revtech. They took it to Tyreland for an alignment, I said the fronts were done a couple of weeks ago when I got the tyres and I have only driven the car once since. Tyreland are part of Pro Tyre (where I got the tyres from and who did the alignment) Tyre City said the fronts were way off and redid the front adjustment FOC. The rears really benefited from the Eibach bolts as you can see in the before and after.
  17. Nice, congratulations. I recommend reading up about the steering lock issue and the very simple fix to prevent it happening (fuse removal), has the gallery gasket been replaced? If not it's worth putting money aside for. 🙂
  18. Buy a TomTom or phone cradle and use Google maps. I didn't think there was a 2020 update disc.
  19. Honestly I couldn't agree more, also the Google maps were giving mobile camera warnings, which was helpful. I would love to get one of these, but realistically I think the earliest would be early October as I need to see what Centre Gravity say about the state of my steering/suspension components when I see them. Hopefully you will still be able to get them in October. 🙂
  20. I thought that initially, but don't think that is the case, changed settings a few times and it's just crap in general. Just need to justify the £425, when to be fair I have a Tom Tom sat in the glove box 😂
  21. So tempted to get one of these. The sat nav in the 370z is so, so bad. Coming back from Supercar Fest nr. Northampton the Zed satnav said 3 and a half hours, my brother popped my postcode on Google maps on his phone and it was 2hrs 15 mins. Not sure why the Zed deliberately takes you away from motorways and into the middle of nowhere. I have it set to use motorways and accepted tolls. This seems a good solution.
  22. Thanks, that's mine and I think you might be right with titanium grey, I can't remember for sure, but I know there are 4 different shades of the paint code, which is a nightmare! I do like the wheels, I saw someone else do pretty much the same thing with his 370z Ray's on his 350z, I just did my base colour Xirallic black, rather than graphite grey.
