    Z newbie here

    Welcome mate
  13. Hi Guys Ive owned and modified many different cars (mainly VAG) but have never really been inclined to do a build thread before. However i have fallen i love with the 350z so much i thought i might as well. So as i said my past car have all been German, mainly Seat's and VW's. I loved these cars but decided i wanted something different, something that was rear wheel drive and two seats. My initial inclination was an MX5, i had always loved the 350z but thought it was well out my budget. I saw this one on eBay and booked a cheeky test drive not thinking i would buy it.....what an awesome mistake that was! I loved the car so much that i immediately put the deposit down and picked it up the next day. The car is mainly for weekend use and track days as i literally live at the back of Brands Hatch I have kept my Mk5 GTI as its a superb daily and great for the occasionally track day: The 350 was completely standard when i bought it, and compared to what i have planned i haven't really done much yet as most the money has gone on petrol and weekends away to drive it. Here are some pictures from the day of collection: My first port of call was the standard oil change and general maintenance to keep it running nice and smooth. My idea with this car is to do as much as i possibly can myself mechanically, i have an ok mind mechanically and i love working on cars. I'm sure ill mess up on the way but i really want to learn and truly understand the car. My first few mods have been purely cosmetic as i wanted to make the car look more my own. So firstly i installed the bottom line skirts by Tarmac. What a difference they make, great instructions and easy to fit. I Then bought a front Lip again from tarmac, honestly those guys are great! After looking at the lip, and test fitting i decided ill get a professional to do it. So i booked the lip in and had the wheels refurbed in gloss black at the same time. As you can see i also asked them to do the centre grill in gloss black as well. I was so pleased with the result, makes such a difference to the look of the car. So this is how she currently sits after a very quick clean: So next is to drive it a bit more, have a few days at Brands Hatch and then see what i do and don't like on track. Although ill definitely be getting Coilovers when the funds allow. Thanks for reading!
