  1. Not sure if this helps you but Google: Nissan 350z steering wheel electrics Images that popped up for me show plug connections. If not, contacting Zmanalex may prove helpful Good luck

    In those immortal words "YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS" At least the vaseline will help anyone, desperate enough, to nick them.
  3. Looks great Try this about your bonnet sensor fix (and note the Nissan link ):
  4. Is there a reason why we can't view archived threads, or can we?? Several times when queries have been posted that I can recall were answered in the past but searching to try and help with an answer shows they are no longer available and in turn Google seems to not be able to help.
  5. Good choice From what we heard the GT4 engines were built to better tolerances and in a different engine shop than those fitted to the 2006 Rev-up engines in much greater numbers. I was once told by 350 engine specialist that the expression "round pistons and oval bores" in the Rev-ups was evident from his findings. And if 98ron fuel was not used and the engine was regularly revved to the max on 95ron that did not help longevity. That said, feedback has shown some owners who chose to only use 95ron (in both DE and Rev-up variants) have said they had no issues, but sadly it became apparent that what appears to be a disproportionate number of owners of the Rev-ups have had what appears to be more than their fair share of engine issues - mainly high oil consumption. But then, forums like this will hear about the downsides more that the vast majority who have enjoyed their Zeds without engine issues.
  6. Given you have said it is a 350 you are looking for but you have said your budget, in my experience I'd forget the rev-up and if money is limited look out for a well looked after DE or if you have a few more thousand to spend then a HR would be my 350 of choice.

    Can I ?

    Here are the rules: https://www.350z-uk.com/forum/51-zeds-for-sale/
  8. 350 spacesaver will fit over the caliper fine, but it's design means you will need to use a spacer - ideally 25mm. Those size of spacers on all four wheels ideally suit the looks of the car IMO and frankly made little if any real difference on the car's road behaviour. See attached link about fitting - apologies about the pics but Photobucket ruined those when they wanted silly money for hosting pics in years gone by. Like you, the car was going to be used on trips to Wales and Scotland and with no mobile signal in parts a spare was 'must-have' for me. Having one of the first 370s in 2010 there were no 370 spacesavers available but then I wanted to use spacers all round for the appearance. I had found that 20mm + 3mm slip spacers overcame the issue of the front wheel studs stopping the wheels (+ the spacesaver) from seating properly on the spacer. But a couple of years on the slip spacers had distorted and led to brake juddering and discs then needed skimming. I then upgraded to the 25mm spacers. The second link that also includes includes a post of mine about the tool kit. If I can find any better pics I'll add them here later. Nso93's avatar shows he is in Tewkesbury
  9. I used a 350 spacesaver when I had my 370 that are a lot more available - so would be worth widening your ask to include the 350 sub-forum.
  10. Best change your avatar then
