Future 350 Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I’m Steve from Coventry, currently have a modified Mini Cooper S R53 but looking to move back to Jap and get my first 350Z once the Mini is gone. 

 

I’ll probably be a little quiet to begin with due to just using the search function as I’m sure all the questions I’ve got have been asked a billion times before already but looking forward to getting one in the next month or two if all goes to plan.

The sooner you get rid of that mini the better. You won't go back once you go jab you never go back. This is my second ZED. Hope you get one soon mate

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. 

 

Yea I’ve been Jap before albeit nothing really classed as a “Sports Car”

(Honda Civic Coupe EJ6, Toyota Yaris T Sport and Mk2 Mazda MX5 1.8)

 

But it you’re right, once it’s in your veins you can’t shake it. The Mini is bags of fun and well equipped but I need to cut my losses on it as I’ve put £6k just in parts into modifying it and if I keep it I’ll most likely spend that again without realising until it’s too late :doh:

Well it’s taken 9 months (albeit I took the Mini off sale for a good chunk of that due to time wasters) but it sold yesterday and today I’ve been and put a deposit down on an 04 UK GT spec 350. Plan is to collect it next Sunday all being well, can’t wait!

Well she’s home! Round trip from Coventry up to Leeds and back to fetch her and she purred perfectly all the way home. Very impressed! First jobs are to service all the fluids for piece of mind and find a decent stubby aerial as the current carbon effect one is completely useless so recommendations welcome.

Welcome. Great cars but don't expect not to mod it if you spend any amount of time on here.:band:

Oh I don’t doubt I’ll be modding it. Just not as hardcore as I went with the Mini (fixed bucket seat, half cage, harness etc). The problem I have is the car is quite good as it is so I’ll be choosing my mods very carefully so I don’t end up ruining it
