  1. @Adrian@TORQEN Ah that's great news. February should give me enough time to get my current mk2 nismo bumper sold so that works out perfectly. Ideally I'd like a set of mk1 Nismo sideskirts too. I'll be keeping my MK2 nismo rear. Cheers!
  2. @Coz@TORQEN okay that's spot on, thanks for taking a look in to this for me!
  3. I'll likely keep the MK2 Nismo rear bumper as I've already got the diffuser to go along with it. I just want to get my hands on a MK1 Nismo Front Bumper and Sideskirts as long as they're not crazy expensive! I've still got to sell one of my sets of wheels to fund the parts yet but it'd be good to have a rough idea of costs in my head first.
  4. Cheers for the suggestions guys. I've spoken to my local Nissan garage and they're unable to source one unfortunately. Similarly I spoke to Tarmac the other day and they're no longer able to supply them so that listing will be getting removed from their site! I'm honestly not sure where Z1 source them from as even Nissan themselves have told me they're no longer in manufacture! Worst case I'll import them through Z1, but after import tax and shipping I'll be dangerously close to £2k for the Bumper and Sideskirts 😩
  5. Morning Gents, Just a quick one. Does anyone know the best place to source a MK1 Nismo Front Bumper & Sideskirts for the 370z in the UK? I've been hunting around online and it seems that absolutely no one stocks them with the exception of Z1 in the states. I'd even be tempted by fibreglass versions if they were easy enough to source but even that is seemingly difficult as the only place that makes them is based overseas and by the time I factor in shipping fees and import tax it's a seriously expensive ordeal. Any help with this would be appreciated.
  6. No longer available. Mods, please close this thread. Thanks!
  7. Cheers mate! Both Connor and Max did an awesome job that's for sure. Yeah, I still really like the OZ's, i just fancy having a spare set of wheels for the car so I can bounce between the two whenever I get bored. The ability to put an equally nice set of wheels on the car while the others are having tyres changed or lips polished should be really handy. I still keep toying with the idea of taking the car to a small drift event so the spare set of 4 wheels will also be super handy for that! I've always been obsessed with drifting, hence the OTT styling off the car as it
  8. A few changes have been made since the last time I wrote an update on this thread so here it goes. Towards the end of May I had my exhaust remade by a small fabrication shop relatively local to me called Angry Parrot Fabrications as my HKS SSM Exhaust had seen better days and one of the flexi's had broken off from the cat. I had the y-pipe and centre section leading back to the short tails made remade and tucked up as high as possible under the car. I also removed one of the subframe braces to allow the exhaust to pass through the gap left near the diff. Since some diff braces requ
  9. Awesome choice with the wing, it's one of my favourites!
  10. @madcat No problem! 370's aren't the lightest of cars anyway so I'm sure if you go for the stiffer option you'll still find it more than comfortable enough over some of the bumpier stuff.
  11. I've had BC Coilovers on mine for the past 3 years now and they have been absolutely brilliant. I've fitted BC's to a few other cars I've owned, my missus' car and a few of my friends and they're always top notch for the price you pay so I'd definitely say BC is the way to go! As for spring rates, it depends on what you use the car for and how soft you want it to be. I personally found the 10k/8k set up a nice improvement over stock but still certainly a little bit soft for me personally. I then made the switch to a 16k front spring and 12k rear (Custom spring rates from BC) and fo
  12. @HEADPHONES @Umster Cheers gents! Tinted taillights aren't my thing personally. I like to keep both the headlights and taillights as OEM as possible, with the exception of painting the headlight internals of course!
  13. @valy Cheers mate! I was quite suprised about the award considering level of cars at the event. I won a free framed print of the car, a few bits of merchandise and other bits and pieces so it was pretty awesome! The photographer did an great job. I absolutely love that 3rd photo of my entering the event, just a shame I had the front plate fitted at the time
