  1. Spotted a nice black OEM looking 350Z in ware at Asda car park today. Anyone on here? Nice private number plate by the way
  2. Weather was nice yesterday so took the chance to install the rear bumper lights! It took a few hours to do, with help from the wife, but finally the finished product is very much worth it! Even managed to not break a single clip, and after a misalignment the first time putting the bumper back, the second alignment was perfect! I got the lights from TORQEN, very fast delivery and no complaints about customer service. One problem I have experienced actually though is the light fitment themselves. The just don’t quite fit absolutely perfectly for a perfectionist like myself. There is a slight gap underneath between the lights and the bumper, and also a bit of a gap between the light and the bumper on the closest side to the wheel. I will try and get some pictures today and upload for everyone to see! Before: After: It refreshes the rear in my opinion, and it is nice to have matching reverse lights as well as bright brake lights now!
  3. Thanks a lot! For me it was the blue or yellow. They both just stand out so much! Such great colours Thank you! Would you believe me if I said I haven’t washed it since July!? It has been sitting in the garage though chilling. I might clean today as the weather looks quite nice. Definitely need to do the wheels. Too much brake dust
  4. So couple of things done recently. changed to stubby aerial finally. I just couldn’t decide if I wanted to do for so long then finally plunged in and did. Made such a difference! So glad I changed. —> I will take a picture and upload when I get the car out the garage next time! Finally today was a big day for the girl. Had the front compression arm bushes replaced. They were suggested to be changed by Horsham back in June as they were deteriorated so I upgraded to Superpro. They look like a beast of a bush! She also handles nicely now! Also got the TORQEN wheel spacers. 20mm for the front and 25mm for the rear. Love the stance now! Before: After: The wheel alignment sheet was quite interesting. Must get some adjustable camber arms some time In the future but hands down to Horsham for the wonderful adjustment they managed to do on the rear! Once again many great thanks to Horsham Developments. Like I’ve said before I cannot recommend them enough!
  5. Welcome to the Z ownership! Hope she brings you lots of fun and joy!
  6. Nice thread! Really good to see the progress, and ultimately the improvement in the end. Cant wait to read more in the future! Keep it up and keep enjoying buddy!

    Spacer Torqing

    So I recently bought 20mm and 25mm spacers from Torqen and I was wondering what torque spec I should tighten them to? I am going to get a torque wrench so as I don't do any over tightens and snap anything

    Bonnet Damper

    Hi all... I am thinking of getting a bonnet damper, as in my opinion it not only looks better but makes it much easier to access the engine bay!! What are the views on this one? Any experiences with it or any others recommended? T
  9. Looks like the veilside definitely... There's another type like the one I have attached below. The who owns this is in the UK but not sure if it is the same spoiler. She has a stunning looking car. Kudos to her!

    I didn't see this topic before I posted in FAQ, perhaps the mods can delete, and I'll piggy back off this if that's easier? I'm looking for the following 'wang'. Does anyone know what it is called or anything? Its not a Nismo v2 as it is slightly different
  11. Hi all... I am looking to see if anyone knows what this spoiler is called, where it can be bought and anything about it... I am very interested in this addition for my blue baby. It has a carbon top, which is not perfectly straight, but dips down the middle slightly. and has blue on the sides and bottom. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance, Kaikora
  12. Not much has really been happening since getting the car. Have had a lot of fun driving it and learning more. Took it to Horsham Developments a couple of weeks ago to do a P3 service and a general check over. They are absolutely fantastic! I cannot recommend enough. Showed me under the car so I could take some photos and also explained and showed me everything that they had done. Very pleased with the condition and looks tidy and clean underneath. To do in November/December: replace compression arm bushes To do next year (probably at service): rear break pads - maybe I’ll replace disks as well although I’m not sure yet. In the future the exhaust will need to be replaced also as it is starting to show signs of wear but should be good for a couple of years yet as I don’t drive it much and it is stored inside. Below are some more washing pictures because we all love that! On a side note I also got this: Got to support the All Blacks as I’m a Kiwi, and I’ll also be in Japan during the World Cup, AND it’s Japanese
  13. That’s great I’ll have to find this guy, definitely can’t be you I’m sure!
  14. Thanks for that, I will have a look. Gyeon stuff sounds quite interesting and I’ll check out car chem too. Gotta start somewhere, so I appreciate it
