  1. Welcome from Colchester. Lovely looking car!! Great colour.
  2. It’s easy to keep a car looking good and feeling tight on low mileage. Try it when it gets used properly haha. Bought at 73k in 2017, now on 100,500k. 08 HR. It got an Invidia Gemini for its 100k birthday :). Sandwiched between a bit of paintwork on the boot lid and oil gallery gaskets before Xmas and a clutch over new year.
  3. Yeah of course mate. Ive had other cars and been to shows for years but tbh it’s my first show with the Z as well. As above, there’s a few of us meeting at the services at 8 then we’ll convoy in from there. I’m just hoping I don’t get caught in any traffic etc because of the distance I’m coming haha.
  4. Yep I’m about ready. Spent the day dodging heavy rain showers to get her washed and polished. Then realised I still needed to get fuel due to my early start tomorrow!!
  5. Convinced the other half to get up early so it’s a 5am start for us from Colchester haha. Aiming to meet you guys at Rownhams.
  6. I’ll aim to try and meet you guys there as well. I’m coming from Essex so it’ll depend on traffic etc so if I’m running behind I’ll just see you at Beaulieu.
  7. Morning guys, I could be interested but it’s a good hour and three quarters from mine which leaves a good long run back afterwards. I might have to think about it for next time so I can book the Monday morning off work as I’m normally up at 5am. Looks like a cracking location though!!
  8. It can. Well, I seem to remember that I picked the foil coating off rather than sanding.
  9. I might join you if you get another date organised, only just seen this.
  10. Morning all, if anyone is interested in a mid/north Essex meet then our next meet is on 13th June. The location has changed to the Duke of Wellington at Hatfield Peverel. If anyone is interested then post below. Cheers guys and gals Dom
  11. Yeah I’m up for Beaulieu!! Payco NickC Silverhorn Killick.z pagan  snowy87 Rich_T andy James AmyZed Mikevv - weather permitting!  baileydom
  12. Haha no not common at all. Only about 50-70 in the uk. Has a VQ motor in but it’s a 2.5 turbo.
  13. Looked really well bud. You wouldn’t have noticed me, I was in a M35 Stagea going the other way haha
  14. Seen yesterday on the A428 heading west, looks like it had a Nismo rear spoiler maybe, was heading the other way on the dual carriageway.
  15. We’re booking the tables on Tuesday bud so say Tuesday morning.
  16. No worries bud, I’ll pop it up again next month. But it’ll always be 2nd Thursday in the month. So the 11th April will be the next one.
  17. Afternoon all. A couple of us on here used to own MR2’s and were heavily involved in the MR2oc. We used to have a regular meet for many years each month in mid-Essex which was generally well attended by both Essex and Kent based people. That hasn’t happened for a year or so now so we’ve decided that we’re going to restart it as a general Japanese car meet. For now the format is going to stay as we used to have it. Meet at a pub in the evening, look at cars, have some food. Thursday 14th March 2019. Arrive around 7:30pm with a table booked for 7:45pm-8pm. Location is: The Grange, Ma
  18. After a full set (driver side and passenger side) of window switches from an import. Anyone got a pair stashed in their garage? cheers Dom
  19. You mean the Z vent that’s hidden when the door is closed? It just pops out. Slide a flat trim removal tool under the bottom and it’ll pop out. If you don’t have trim removal tools than you can use a flat bladed screwdriver but be careful to avoid scratching the dash. The bolt you you can see through the vent holds in the dash.

  20. Is there any other way of working on cars? Haha yeah I did.
  21. That’s what I did. Took out the old unit and put in the cubby box. I also removed the dvd drive behind the drivers seat and fitted another glove box behind there. So I gained two more little places to put things.
  22. Yeah they look spot on. I used to have a set of white 5Zigen’s followed by a set of white lenso d1r’s on my old MR2. Got loads of stick for those but I do love a set of white rims. They look completely different and look great against the blue. Good choice!!
  23. I would expect the wiring is there tbh, although straightforward to check, if you just ease the centre waterfall panel forwards you’ll see the plugs for the sat nav screen in there behind the cubby box. Surely the guy you’re swapping with wouldn’t agree though if he didn’t think it was doable (presumably he modified it to the cubby box originally?). As you say the sat nav DVD drive is a bit more involved to swap over but only extra plastic panels.
