  1. Thank you for sharing! I really enjoyed this. Most interesting engine related YouTube video I’ve seen in a while.
  2. Hoping I can get the day off from work as I’d like to go to some meets this year! Fingers crossed for when my roster is out
  3. Good luck, I’m sure it will be up to the job
  4. I’ve just tried Koch Chemie Eulex on mine, using a partially soaked microfibre and several passes. It’s the best thing I’ve used for removing wheel weights so far.
  5. Agreed the short trigger is an absolute game changer. I was skeptical at thirty odd quid but it makes working in tighter spaces much easier and I’m really happy with the Direct Hoses one, same as you got above. Could definitely live without it but it does make life easier. Now ironically my mate is talking of getting a quick release extension for the short trigger to make it the same length as the original lance
  6. I was today years old when I found this thread... looking forward to the updates
  7. That might be a nice drive out for me (Bedfordshire)... I’ll watch the forums for any future meets, thanks.
  8. Never caused me any problems. Just disarms the bonnet sensor part of the alarm (on mine at least). Only threat is two legged critters now.
  9. All bolts came out ok until the ones holding the mount to the gearbox. Possibly over tightened by the garage which did the clutch. Only supposed to be 40lbf.
  10. Tried to install mine today
  11. Rotten egg smell is typically associated with cats.
  12. https://youtu.be/cxSSlxDTBWM I’ve inserted a link to the rather entertaining promotional video displaying their 12 month claim, based on the premise of washing twice monthly. Real life results would also back this up, provided people know how to maintain their paint properly. I’m not a Soft99 fanboy (I’ve only only used King of Gloss) but I feel I should interject when the durability is questioned without basis. Reason being as above, it’s fluorine based and synthetic rather than naturally occurring wax products. Having said that, as we’ve all said above, if
  13. People rave about it, PTFE based so very good water repellency properties and lasts about 12 months. Not the best in their range for gloss so it depends on what you’re looking for. If ceramic is off the cards it’s the next best thing for durability.
  14. I’m expecting a full review of this! Sounds right down your street. I’ve got too many chemicals to change system myself, just bought another 5L of snow foam.
  15. Once they stop taxing cars for CO2 and NOx emissions they will start taxing them for iron and rubber particles emitted from brakes and tyres respectively. Something which is also present on electrical cars. These are much larger in diameter than exhaust emissions particles and somewhat as harmful towards air quality. So I expect to see the tax system changed to this by the time we’re all supposed to be electric. No escaping it unfortunately and of course it will all be our fault for driving electric cars then (despite people trying to be green and following government recommendations/tax incen
  16. The car sounds and looks great! I've been following this thread since I joined the forums
  17. Luckily the Koch compounds aren't too dusty. Some did get onto the plastics but I brushed it off. Saving a proper engine bay clean for another day
  18. Most touches like that are probably wasted on people who have grown up with 350Z onwards. There were still comments about DE vs HR in the live stream it was hilarious. At least it drew a wide audience as they clearly weren’t all Z fanatics.
  19. Took to this task myself today as my headlights were starting to get hazy. I used Koch Chemie H9.01 on a DA polisher and it all went after one test pass. There are still some fine scratches but as with all thing detailing wise, I got the results I wanted so thought I’d call it a day as I’d managed to avoid wet sanding. Followed up with Koch Chemie M3.02 which didn’t do much as they were already pretty much crystal clear. Just in between coats of Carbon Collective Platinum Trim. I’ll report back on how well it does and how long it lasts but it claims UV protection for up t
  20. Nice motor, look forward to seeing it around Cambridge some day!
  21. Stayed up last night foolishly to watch the live stream of the reveal. There was a great buzz about the car initially but the questions got stupid and the MC was annoying so I turned it off after half an hour. Who would have thought we would live in an age where there's such a hype about a manual gearbox (and a manual handbrake for that matter) in a sports car no less! However, I'm glad they kept it in and it could differentiate the car for some buyers. Shame that it's not coming to Europe but understandable, still leaves imports as an option for the serious buyers. Maybe that's something I'd
  22. What a great choice of replacement car, also nice to hear that you've had 15 years of enjoyment out of your Z.
