    jdm brake pads

    JDM brakes have about the same stopping power as the brembos, they just fade a bit quicker. Unless you're on the track you really shouldn't notice the difference. You will notice the difference when they seize up though like mine just have, only put in new EBC disks and pads about a month ago and now I'm looking at new callipers (will be a Torqen set as soon as I have the money together). Quite annoyed that they didn't go before I spent all that money on the new disks, ah well something to sell on I guess...
  3. New panel air filter ordered yesterday and it's here today! Awesomely quick service I'll be back for the callipers as soon as my bank balance allows it

  5. Looks like AME just do race car work now so I'm stuck for somebody I can trust to work on my zed. Anybody got any recommendations?
  6. Funniest I've heard is one of the kids at my sons school asking him if it was a BMW 350Z..
  7. I got 6 points and a hefty fine for doing 68 down here (No roadworks when I was going down there): https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.8926556,-1.1620436,3a,75y,203.53h,77.25t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sSu01b8ANqz-_J7niAbo8Zw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1 I was most annoyed as it used to be a national speed limit, but it's now changed to 40 (There is only one small repeater hidden in a bush) so I genuinely thought I was being sensible. They were stopping everybody who went past, they have now actually put the 40MPH sign up at the entrance to the road. I got hauled into court and they weren't interested in anything I had to say and refused to look at the pictures showing that there was no speed limit sign at the entrance to the road, and that the only sign was hidden in a bush. I was told to be grateful that I kept my license and that they were going to be lenient with me because I needed to be able to drive for work.
  8. What a horrific plate, if you remove the E, the 5 and the first K...
  9. Look exactly the same as the ones posted on here in another thread, but that thread seems to have disappeared. They look good, but I don't see any reason for the rear brake lights, the Zed has enough brake lights already IMHO. I'd rather have all fog light.

    SLIP light

    Have a look and see if there is any feathering of the tyres and get your alignment checked. The zeds are low so you'll probably have to go to a specialist, the standard tyre garages won't be able to get their kit on the car (I know this from experience). Don't take it anywhere near somewhere like quick fit, they will try and bodge it and shoe horn their kit on when it doesn't fit. When I first got mine the alignment was way out and I burned through a set of tyres before i realised what the problem was (they had got down to the metal on the inside but looked like new on the outside). I was suffering from the slip light coming on lots because I was driving on just the inside of the tyres and basically had no traction. The car is good at working out if it's going to lose traction or not, if the light is coming on all the time you have a problem that needs to be fixed. Switch for the petrol cap in under the steering wheel near your right knee.

  12. I was having problems with my disks (lots of vibration under heavy braking) and putting in a new set of EBC grooved brake disks has made the world of difference. I was considering new callipers before, now it feels like I stop on a dime, wish I'd changed them ages ago. Based on how the brakes feel now I think that the original disks just weren't up to much. I haven't noticed any seizing from my rear callipers though so your milage may vary.
