  1. Mine was £230, supplied my own wheel... Royal steering wheels do an option where if they have one in stock they supply the wheel then after fitting you send yours back to them. They have quite a few options of different materials and shaping etc so their costs will depend on what you want.
  2. Nice, yeh royal steering wheels, they've done a v good job. Just found the answer to my question about the torque. 22-28 ft-lb Surprised it wasn't a little higher but looks like I got it right
  3. Fitted my new wheel yesterday but now I am wandering if I tightened the centre bolt enough. Does anyone know what torque it should be at?
  4. Yeh, they are pretty pricey. There are some decent alternative options though. I have one of these in my track day z https://www.mtech-engineering.co.uk/product-page/nissan-350z-alloy-gear-knob
  5. Thanks for the reply. So if I've understood correctly, they are compatible but the switches are different but only because of the writing?
  6. Looks like it's supposed to light up. One of these https://www.wish.com/product/581df9fa69098f4cfad07625?from_ad=goog_shopping&_display_country_code=GB&_force_currency_code=GBP&pid=googleadwords_int&c={campaignId}&ad_cid=581df9fa69098f4cfad07625&ad_cc=GB&ad_curr=GBP&ad_price=20.00&campaign_id=8701462921&retargeting=true&gclid=Cj0KCQjwoaz3BRDnARIsAF1RfLcuCe1HrM0J-yI04vmU6UB9olBwczs3UWVPwP5LGUSa-O5EEEHPLEcaAq6PEALw_wcB&hide_login_modal=true&share=mobileweb
  7. Does anyone know if the HR and DE steering wheels are interchangeable? To expand a little bit... I have a HR with cruise control etc. The plan is to buy a reshaped wheel from royal and swap my controls onto it. Then I wanted to fit my old HR wheel into a DE as I don't like the orange leather at the bottom, the de also has cruise control etc so i'll swap those controls onto the old HR wheel and send the DE one back to royal. Hopefully that makes sense, can anyone tell me if that would all work?
  8. Doesn't sound like an OEM one. Do you have a picture?

    DE seats in a HR

    I managed to figure this one out for myself. They do not fit, the shape and size etc is the same, they will bolt in, but the yellow connector on the HR is smaller than the DE so they don't plug in... It might be possible to remove the connector block and splice the wires together but I didn't want to risk ruining them. Luckily for me it wasn't a complete waste, my new replacements have just gone into my track day car instead.
  10. I ordered my mats from here a while back: https://www.carmats-uk.com/cm/nissan/350z/600 Was v happy with them and they've held up well over the last nearly 2 years
  11. I'm looking at replacing my worn out seats with another set. I have a HR (2008) with heated, electric seats with the airbag built in. I've found a set the same but from a DE. Would these be a straight swap (keeping all of those features working) or is there any reason why they wouldn't fit?
  12. I really like the black and orange look, could suit yours as well. Have you done anything else with your interior? 14N was really helpful for me and we spent a while finding the right shade of orange felt for the z, maybe you can find one closer to your paint colour
  13. Bump, resurrecting my search for some seats
  14. Thanks hicksi It's the original cover but has been hydrodipped. I separated the z logo from the main bit and got that done in orange carbon fibre then glued it back on
  15. Thanks for the replies. Yup, the door locks work with the key the only problem is that I live in a flat with no garage. Might have to see if I can make a space to leave the battery on trickle charge somewhere inside.
