  1. New bonnet struts and a little engine bay detail. Need to figure out a way to get the plenum nice and clean. Bonnet Struts Engine Bay Before Engine Bay After
  2. Technically, assuming 350Z prices lag slightly, the recent GBP/USD crash should benefit you if you buy now. Also, you'll essentially be hedging against inflation and currency fluctuations as the value of a 350Z should increase long-term (3-5 years). I'm no economics expert but that's how I understand it. For some accurate data I tracked using Fuelio: Average mileage per month: 484 Average cost per month: £213.38 Average fuel consumption: 24.51 mpg I travel mostly short distances except when I head into work roughly once a week. I drive how it's supposed to be driven but I don't rag it. Road tax is the killer at £660 a year with insurance coming in at £800 which is reasonable for my age.
  3. Like @Azurez33 said, double check where you can. Check all the injectors, plugs and coils. Don't just glance and say 'ok', crank it and look for a spark on all 6. If still no luck, then do a bit of research around NATS failure. See if the symptoms match yours. Maybe a hard ECU reset? It would really be helpful if we had a video of the car cranking! Also, is it an import? How many miles?
  4. I see what you mean - the wear is nearly identical. I'll definitely get it sorted. It's now on the list! Thanks for the recommendation.
  5. Regarding three of your replies @spxntaneous_Z. I'd look again. I believe that Nissan specialists can run further diagnostics if he wants to pop down to a garage. If it's NATS immobiliser failure (it can happen) then you can bypass it with an UpRev map (£449). Horsham Developments are the people for that job. Read more here. Quoting that website: EDIT: Regarding... I'd pull the injectors and check them. No harm in it.
  6. Remember: air, fuel and spark. Ensure you have those three key ingredients first before you do anything.
  7. Time for a bit of leather care. The photos don't do the difference justice (due to image size restrictions). Leather Cleaner: Gliptone Liquid Leather Cleaner Leather Care: Autoglym Leather Care Balm Brush: SONAX - Leather & Upholstery Brush Applied both products using a clean microfibre. I agitated the leather cleaner using the brush. Seat Before After Bolster Before After Headrest Before During After (it was slightly wet when I took the photo, no cause for alarm)
  8. I've found them mate, but I appreciate the offer. I wasn't clear in my previous reply, these were the type I needed. I've already tried them and they fit perfectly. I was just comparing to the other types I had.
  9. I'd already tried that type and a slightly longer version (for the front bumper) and neither fit. I bought these instead and they match with what came off the car.
  10. Answering my own question here but whatever. I've just found the "Head Lamp Cleaner" assembly on 7zap.com. I clearly wasn't looking hard enough! EDIT: Additionally, I've also found this - It's for the 370Z but looks identical to the one I've got.
  11. That actually isn't the clip I'm looking for. I've tried that type and a longer version (both recommended on this forum) and neither fit. The clip I'm looking for has three "prongs".
  12. I don't know what you mean by "standard"? I know for sure that there are at least two different types of plastic front bumper clips. The type you sell, the type I bought, didn't fit, hence why I asked.
  13. Hi all, Does anyone know where I can find the schematics for the UK 350Z variant? I'm currently using 7zap.com but it's clearly for a different model as the headlight washers on the front bumper are missing. I've checked the other available schematics and I still can't find it. More specifically, I'm trying to hunt down the part number for the push clip in the photo. It's from the front bumper but, like the headlight washers, it's missing from the schematics. I would just chance it online, but I'd rather be sure before I buy. Thanks in advance
  14. Cleaned the MAF sensor today just for the sheer fun of it (apparently, they should be cleaned every 50,000 miles). There was actually a tiny bit of muck which I managed to very satisfyingly blast out. I did another PSF reservoir change. For anyone else thinking about doing it, you'll need roughly 225ml worth of PSF to fill up the reservoir to just under the cold maximum.
  15. Decided to run a can of BG 44K Platinum (£22.50 from Amazon) through the system. It's nearly a 16-year-old car so I thought why not. I've listed my current fuel stats (tracked with Fuelio) below and I'll compare them once I've travelled a similar distance. This testing wouldn't find itself in a peer-reviewed journal but no harm in it. Current fuel stats: AVG: 24.62MPG over 2,657 miles BEST: 30.15MPG (over a full tank)
