  1. Easy enough job providing you take your time, I used to do mine every couple of years because spark plugs are a cheap way to keep the best performing and running engine. Remove the airbox (two if you have a HR) and make sure not to touch the throttle body butterfly (s) and then simply work your way round one at a time. Do that, follow torque specifications and you'll be fine.
  2. @RDON on this forum is selling an immaculate MK1 Nismo. Youd be silly to buy that ruined MK2 not even consider his.
  3. Definitely not tyres causing the ABS light then, they're perfect size. I'd wager intermittent ABS sensor fault hence how it comes and goes. If it comes on any time during the MOT then it'll fail mate
  4. Airbag warning light and ABS warning lights will both immediately fail an MOT. I suspect the ESP and traction control lights are on due to a fault with the ABS system as its all interlinked. If I was a betting man, I'd wager you have a failed ABS sensor. I'd highly recommend you get the vehicle scanned or you purchase one of the Bluetooth OBD scanners to give you an idea of where to start. Out of interest, what tyres are you running? If the wheel sizes are massively different from OEM that could be what's fooling the system into think there is a fault with the ABS
  5. For my sins I am in the trade 🤣 not that it counts for much when people rarely seem to listen 🤣 no news on when the F520 is out yet with my supplier, however there seems to be a national tyre shortage as getting new tyres is a massive pain in the arse lately. I've been happy with the eco falkens fitted to my personal car, girlfriends audi and so on. The Bridgestones fitted to my nismo are wearing low so I'll be looking in the future
  6. What about every 2000 miles like mine 🤣
  7. Don't forget that an MOT is only the barest minimum road standard. A tyre at 2mm while not really safe will still pass an MOT. Alot of people get hung up on the fact that a car has passed an MOT its in good condition. Further compiled that alot of it is up to the individual MOT testers discretion, so what one might pass another might fail and vice versa.
  8. This. We sell plenty of falken tyres to our customers and they are a perfect good choice to go for. Any tyre will let go in the wet or dry if you drive them hard enough. Certain types of falkens are actually some of the quietest tyres for sale, which let's not lie, a 370z needs all the help it can get with tyre and road noise 😉
  9. I'm not embarrassed by what I've written at all. Full history means full history, way too many people stretch that truth when selling a car. My nismo, 5 out of 5 stamps, 5 invoices, 5 services = full history. 9 out of 18 is not full history. Especially at that price. Working on the service counter its not that unusual for people to do exceptionally low mileage and stick to the schedule to the letter, several customer's come to mind. Just say its not been serviced due to the low mileage, but that doesn't sound good does it 😕
  10. Full service history of 9 stamps on an 18 year old car, that's some very good math. Shame it'll leak like a sive when it starts getting properly used. What a waste
  11. Zmanalex, literally the chap who first replied to your thread mate @ZMANALEX
  12. Euro car parts, Nissan, Tarmac Sportz, Zmanalex are all good choices mate. Alternatively just Google nissan 350z rear anti roll bar droplinks. You'll find then easy enough
  13. G'day 😁 I'm looking for a complete set of the arch extension mouldings that Nismo 370s come with from factory on all 4 corners ideally in storm white. The previous owner removed mine I assume due to being lowered I'm also in the market for a cat back exhaust, ideally something branded like an invidia Gemini, or an Ark Grip V2. These are my preferred choice so if anyone has one for sale then please let me know. Must be in reasonable condition though, not interested if it's been battered against the floor!
  14. Echoing Zmans comments that is also the rear anti roll bar which pretty crusty. You might be able to remove it and get it blasted and painted. The anti roll bar end links could also be the cause of the knock
  15. The main reason people put plenum spacers on a DE engine is that the front two cylinders are restricted on airflow due to design in the plenum, it's a natural bottleneck. This is the smart choice if thinking of a remap as you are maximising the gains when paired with supporting mods. DE revup and HR this is refined on so there is no need for a plenum spacer Spacers range from 5/16th (preferred) and 1 inch. The main issue with spacers is that the strut braces don't tend to fit once fitted as you've raised the plenum. I would only personally recommend the above Aftermarket manifolds if you have all of the supporting modifications, like intakes, throttle bodies, manifolds, sports cats and exhaust etc to really maximise every horsepower. Even then if you saw a 20-30hp jump I would be surprised, so does the gains outway the cost for you? What you will notice with a remap is the difference in throttle response, it wakes the DE from being a little sluggish to being quite lively
  16. Definitely not stock with those AN lines.
  17. Not on 350s. Remember they just have the badge and then a clear reflector below. That will need welding up and the badge cutting out!
  18. Sell me the drivers separately 🤣 my passengers is mint but drivers is beginning to show ware and it always bones me off!
  19. Thats the going rate for Nismo mats. I'm unbelievably tempted but I just don't know if I can justify 300 quid for one mat when my passengers is mint. I can tell you at the main dealers these are best part of £545...
  20. I doubt very much changing to 5w-40 caused this. I ran 5w-40 in my 350z and now my Nismo for the last 6-7years without any issue. First step, check oil level. If OK then I strongly suspect that its either the guage itself or the oil pressure sensor which is a common failure on these cars. My buddies 350z did exactly this, would go straight to 120psi and stay there. We got a replacement sensor located on the bottom of the pil pan next to the oil filter and swapped it out. Easy job, just be very careful when you tighten it back up. Steel sensor and aluminium block, you over tighten it you will crack your lower block and that's a bad day. My rule was finger tight, 1/4 turn on the ratchet and job was a gooden
  21. What was the outcome to this? I've looked at mine and have exactly this, in exactly the same places. It's caused me to go over with a fine tooth comb and I've not found anything else but want to get this sorted. I have full dealer history so wondering if Nissan will be kind especially as I work for them
  22. Your kit should have come with spacers for the strut brace as well. Check packaging and make sure they've not been sellotaped somewhere and you've missed them. Failing that, try spacing it with washers or you can run without like I did on mine. Ideally though, it was designed to be there, so be there it should
