  2. @HEADPHONES I know right, absolute perfection! @davey_83 link to airbag loom kit https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304769002208?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=bpDOGzmOTHm&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=NRzfZP8lT2W&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY @dave_7 haha there is no graceful way of getting out now @angelsanzbriz yea I bought the car in 2020, thank you very much. Still very much enjoying it!
  3. Well, I think its safe to say its been a long winter and we are all sick of it! Last drive out of 2022, only right it had to be C&M. Weather was lovely, car was in some great company! Who said Nissan doesn't make good cars 😅 Had some time to do a 'pre winter storage detail' Wheel wash and Decontamination Snow Foam pre wash Two Bucket wash Tar Removal Towel and Blow dry Clay Bar decontamination removal Single Stage machine polish (Rupes Yellow pad and Scholls S20 polish) IPA wipe down Two Layers of Angel Wax Fifth Element wax Exhaust tips polished Tyres dressed Interior hoovered and wiped down Also did a two stage machine polish on the rear lights and fog light as was much needed. Plan is to get the front bumper painted and then PPF the whole front of the car so didn't see the point in ceramic coating the paintwork. To finish off, I took off my B pillar trim and de wrapped them, something I was meaning to do since I got the car. Unfortunately looks like whoever took them off before to wrap snapped two out the 3 clips so I bought a new one to replace. Thank goodness it was a nice day to drive home! Finally managed to clear the garage after 1 year of living in the new house! Happy with the size tbh, some of the new modern garages are a joke how small they are! All tucked away for winter Fast Forward to end of March 2023 What an awful and depressing winter hey 😒 haha nah wasn't too bad, managed to jet off to Oman to see the fam so split it up a bit at least! Time to tax the car, gone up to just shy of £700 a year, not ideal but it is what it is 😭 Last minute decision to go to Japfest and it was actually a great day, caught up with some of you lot and put some new faces to cars! Positive vibes all around, i think everyone was just glad to get out in their cars. Finally found some time to install my Recaro Pole Position I bought last year. Seat out, always satisfying to be able to clean areas that are usually blocked. Now anyone who has fit aftermarket seats know that you have to bypass the airbag plug, I've seen people solider and splice their own. I didn't fancy that and managed to find a airbag by pass resistor kit on ebay which is plug and play. Worked a treat, no air bag light! The weight difference between the two is incredible, didn't have a scale to compare but must be 10lbs or so I bought Buddy Club rails as I wanted to still be able to move the seat back and forward, plus no need for me to be 'on the floor as I'm only 5'10 in height. Can't fault the Buddy Club rails for the most part, good quality, great fitment. Had an issue with one of the studs but the company I bought it from quickly sent me a replacement so all good. I couldn't get the brackets on the lowest setting on the seat as it would block the rail lever that moves the seat back and fourth so I'm at second from bottom. Test fit, all good, I'm sure I'll do some miles and adjust if needed. So happy with the look, definitely what this car was missing from factory! In the future I would love to send them to get stripped and the Nismo logo embroidered on the headrest like the mk2 CS seats. Quick blast out with my friend on his motorbike to test out the seats, all I can say I was blown away with the difference a good bucket can make to the driving experience, feel so much more connected to the car and makes already a great car feel even more analog! Plan is to get the passenger seat further down the line, I literally never have a passenger so would rather prioritise other things I would like to get for the car. Next up exhaust system I think, after two years of enjoying the stock system I think its time to unleash the beast. I've banged on about a Motordyne system forever but could never justify the price now. Also looked at the Torqen system and Greddy so toss up between the two! Hope everyone is well and look forward to seeing some of you at the National Z event in a couple of weeks 😎
  4. The Ultimate set up having both options for wheels and tyres, I suppose unless you got a support vehicle you'll have to guess on the day how the weather will be! Out of intrest how much for a set of Goodyear EF1SS?
  5. Those coilover sleeves are well good! Also your car must sound insane now 🤩
  6. Anyone got tickets and can't make it? Looking to come along
  7. Full drift build on a mk1 Nismo!

  9. AR Exclusive are THE place to go. Xpel and Gyeon Accredited. Their work is top notch, I know Irfan personally, good guy. https://arexclusivecarcare.co.uk/
  10. A couple more videos thanks to Dave Hammit. I wanted Motordyne but I think I'll go for the Torqen Zorst instead next year.
  11. The whole electrification of cars is a joke. And the agenda's they push to justify it is classic political brainwashing. This podcast is a great listen and makes you realise its a lot worse then we all thought.
  12. Completely feel you! Been looking for my Nismo for a couple of years. Must of seen nearly every exhaust video on youtube lol Ive got a mk1 so can't help but I know @ShortPaul has the greddy on his mk2 and also someone else who had the injen system on their mk2. Ive heard both these systems in person with stock cats they sounds incredible, deep tone with no rasp like you were explaining.
  13. That drone shot is awesome! Car is really looking the finished part now, wheel colour sets it apart! Also loving the window decals, very simple but clean 😎
  14. Wow nearly a year since my last update! Pulled my car out of storage at the beginning of March, very blessed to have a customer who let me keep my car in his garage for 4 months over the winter. They live about an hour from me so didn't get to see it at all during that period so its always nice when you get back in it, start appreciating all the little details again. I find the best way to get bored of a car is to daily drive it, I'm grateful this isn't my daily! All taxed ready to drive, I bought 6 months as couldn't stomach the £600+ or whatever it is now for a full year. I had the Z1 Air Intakes sitting for a while and never got round to fitting them before I took the car off the road. So me and a friend decided to go ahead and fit them. A simple job you would think but as mentioned before I needed to remove the oil cooler to be able to fit the intakes as the oil cooler bracket was fixed to the crash bar where the filters sit. After some debate we thought it would be better just to relocate the oil cooler, so we got a neighbour who does custom turbo bikes to do us a custom bracket so the oil cooler can sit below the crash bar. Came out well but the heavy duty stainless steel lines were nearly impossible to relocate so decided to ship the car down to Horsham for them to figure out and also carry out a service. As always Jez and the team were very accommodating and sorted everything out no problem. Spotted by @V1H who was down there getting his new cats fitted. Sure do look good together, managed to catch up at the Torqen meet later on in the year. I think I've only done about 5k miles this year so far, definitely been about quality not quantity this year. Me and @Killick.z enjoyed North Wales so much last year we wanted to do another road trip but bigger this time round. Originally was looking at the NC500 but we agreed Scotland was missions and we both would like to do Wales again. So we planned a 4 day road trip from North to South. Car prepped ready to go! Also managed to swap my wheel nuts out for some new ones from Z1, no more rusty locking wheel nut! Wheel area now complete! 2022 Wales Road Trip. Cannot even begin to tell you how good this was, we spent two days North then two days South. We had a mixture of sunshine and rain, the roads were quite for the most part and our cars did not skip a beat. I didn't think I could fall in love with my car even more then I already was but this road trip did just that. What a highlight to the year. Just under 1000 miles covered and 25 hours of driving... Just awesome 😎 Caffeine and Machine on the way home, Monday afternoon and there was still some tasty cars around, weather was perfect, just a perfect way to end an amazing road trip! Only attended a few meets this year, not really about static meets but is always some acceptions. Torqen Summer Meet, great to catch up with Adrian, Coz and the team and some other car friends! Me and @ShortPaul comparing v1 and v2 differences! Simply Japanese at National Motor Museum, Beaulieu with the forum. Have never been to this neck of the woods before and always been told its a beautiful location so went down the night before and stayed in Southampton. Great to put some cars to faces and meet everyone! It was a great day! So, the big talking point for the v1 is always the seats, no Recaro CS's like in the v2. A lot of people get the Juke Nismo CS's for the v1 but if I'm honest I've never like the CS in general when it comes to comfortability. They look awesome but I think they are over priced and not as comfortable as my current seats. Anyway last year I was a passenger to my friend in his track E46 M3 and we drove to the Nurburgring, he had Recaro pole positions and I honestly couldn't believe how comfortable they were after sitting in them for 9 hours. So decided to go with them, I have not seen anyone put pole positions in a Nismo yet so I like the idea that it is different but looks OEM at the same time. Managed to order them in the perfect Nismo spec similar to the v2 CS's. Black Leather with Red Alcantara inserts. I went for the Buddy Club rails as they have the all important seat belt relocation hole. Absolutely over the moon with them and can't wait to fit them in the coming weeks!!!!!
