  1. Also, do you have any advice on how to disable the fake engine cabin sound?

  2. Umster said you may be able to help with a spare smart key for a 370Z. Part number is 5WK5019.

    Do you happen to know if other more common keys are compatible?

  3. Thanks for the reply, I did wonder, there seem to be many on ebay, but none with the same part number - and that may mean a different chip? I tried asking several ebay sellers with similar 2 button keys, but all said they didn't have one for my car. Maybe I should try one out nevertheless... I will also try ZMANALEX
  4. Hi - You got you fake engine noise turned off at the dealer? My dealer said it's not possible? Do you know what/how they did it? Cheers
  5. Its a 5WK50195 model. See photos. Dealer wants staggering amount for new one. I am told it is possible to re-program one to work with my car. Thanks!
  6. Thanks for replies. Finally booked in for tyres and geo at Abbey in Oxted tomorrow. Very excited! Will let you know the outcome...
  7. Hi All, New to the forum... Just bought a '16 Nismo, One owner, under 20K miles, all-in-all pretty nice stock Nismo... Had a test drive in a total downpour so couldn't really explore handling. Could be bad move #101. However, before delivery, the dealer thought they should put new tyres on as the ones it came on were 'nearly worn out'. They put 3 new tyres on... Old one on OSF is Bridgestone Potenza S001 245/40, which it had all-round (as far as I remember), before : New on NSF is Firestone Roadhawk 245/40 New both rears Accelera PHI2 285/35 Seems they went for the cheapest they could get their hands on at the time? (Should say - I come from a history of 3 Elises and always just used the special-build 'LTS' Lotus Yokos) As far as I can feel, the car is undefined, floaty and wandering at the front and often tramlines in even small furrows quite dramatically and suddenly. The rear is at best dangerous in the wet (lethal even?) and seems 'spongy' and 'delayed' to settle in the dry, although after this undefined turn-in it does seem to grip ok in the dry. Not really what I was expecting at all... OK, I get that after the Elises, the Z was going to be a completely different proposition, but I feel that the tyres are completely messing with its true character. And I suspect that the alignment is out as well, because the steering wheel is now off-centre in a straight line, but that could be because of the different tyres on the front? i'm hoping that these symptoms ARE due to the s**t tyres, but I'd welcome advice (other than replace the Acceleras with rubber bands?), but I suspect I should just chuck them all out and start over with a new full set of PS4s? And what 'reasonable' sizes? The Accelera rears almost look too small for the rims, with the sidewalls sloping inwards. Cheers
