  1. Long shot, but send a message with this thread link to Zmanalex - he may be interested https://www.350z-uk.com/profile/9648-zmanalex/
  2. It was just a supplier possibility I was giving you, so ask them what you want
  3. Maybe?: https://www.350z-uk.com/topic/119019-torqen-350z-de-350z-hr-and-370z-high-flow-cats/page/5/
  4. Hopefully someone will be along who knows the answer, but in the meantime maybe this pic gives you a clue?
  5. Here you go: https://www.350z-uk.com/profile/14439-ken/
  6. That is bad luck, but at least the neighbour is doing the right thing. Just one observation - have you checked the offside that looks very close the wall/fence, given the way your car was shunted?
  7. Better book an appointment at Specsavers Stan

    GT Pack vs GT

    I recall electric seats being fitted to base models in years gone by. It seems the wiring is all there so just plug and play, although for heated seats to work you would need the switches as well. Best if you can post up some pics of your (inside and out) to help us verify the model for you.
  9. One of the best 'how-to' vids I have seen on the forum and a sure winner mod for anyone seriously tracking their Zed.
  10. Check out the i30N, get a good 1 year old one with your budget. 5 years warranty that includes track use (if you want to do that). Only downside I have found is that it tempts you to exercise your right foot and with a smallish tank (50ltr), fill-ups come round pretty quick.
  11. Try searching "Jockland Hoon", but you vid is also on You Tube
  12. Found some pics here of the 2008 Jockland Hoon posted by Martinmac (miss you Mart RIP). https://zclub.net/community/index.php?threads/jockland-hoon-pics.10294/ Sadly Photobucket, which was used for photo hosting in those years, screwed up image clarity .
  13. No - way, way before Ken bought his. Pics from the Jockland hoon in 2008. The GTR was driven a friend of Stewy who organized that event - don't recall his name but iirc he was only about 18....... Apart from the last pic, they were taken at the starting point in Fort Augustus - good memories and nice pic of my black Zed at the time, next to Stewy's car. Great memories

    Nismo wheels

    As an ex-team member I know that managing a free forum throws various challenges from time wasters and worse.....that takes up a fair bit of time, apart from enjoying what the rest of us members want to read, follow and benefit from. And yes it is dedication/passion, that keeps team members going, giving up what free time they have and remembering they do it all for free. No doubt your interest Silverthorn in what a team member gets up to has been noted.....as a future recruit
  15. The i30n is a bundle of fun - bought for £25k (pre-registered) last December, that comes with all the toys as standard and 5 year warranty that also allows for track use, providing Hyundai do the servicing which are are not expensive. It all works very well. Customizing the drive mode gives you a real hardcore feel and the cornering grip with E limited slip diff is something else. Chose it after reading road testers reports and compared to the VW offerings etc so much more for your money. The fact it is manual with a handbrake and spare (spacesaver) wheel ticked more boxes for me. The only downside I have found is that it likes it's octane and with a relatively small 50 litre tank means fill-ups come round quickly, but then I did not buy it to tootle around in..... Be interesting to see how the i20n is rated, no doubt the smaller size with a 1.6 turbo as opposed to the 2 litre turbo in the i30n will make it another fun machine.
  16. Avatar says his location is Truro Suggest you message him
  17. Best to pm Zmanalex, rather than chance he sees your posts
  18. From your description a failed wheel bearing does seem the most obvious problem, given you checked there are no stones between the disc and shield ? Given what you have done, in the process did you check out if the noise was there with the car jacked up and turning the wheel + checking for play? Might sound daft, but did you also (thoroughly) check the tyre(s) to see if there was any sign of potential carcass failure or something embedded in the tread? Otherwise, if you have a breakdown cover give them a call is about the best option I can suggest. (Away from home of course)
  19. Try Zmanalex, based in Perthshire https://www.350z-uk.com/profile/9648-zmanalex/
  20. A little extreme to avoid kerbing the rims
  21. Stunning Zed, great find and info and look forward to further posts
