What have I done?

Recommended Posts

Okay, this is really stupid but I only decided to get myself a 350z a month ago and literally fell in love with the first car that I saw, a black 2006 roadster. My head was saying 'go slowly, check out a few, get the AA to inspect it, haggle on the price' my heart was saying 'I WANT IT!!' the rest is history. I absolutely love driving it, the car feels suprisingling composed through corners. Deceptively quick, just when I'm begining to enjoy the push into my seat, I notice that I've left everything for dust but I don't feel like it is going that fast. Mind you I come from a Lotus Elise background so even 50 felt fast in that.  

Nothing I can see or feel wrong with the car, the alignment was a fair bit out which I just got fixed and I do have that anoying clicking rear driveshaft which is really noticable with the roof down. Other than that, the car is 13 years old and in great shape. Maybe even a future classic :D

 

Looking to make a few discrete mods to make it just a little better, fist stop will be to replace the brakes and tyres, 3 types of tyres on the car and a scored front disk. Going to read some threads, watch a bit of youtube, stock up on lots of tea and break out the spanners :thumbs: 

 

Looking forward to it.

Search for clicky axel thread, it shows how to fix that noise without having to buy a whole new CV joint.

 

Otherwise enjoy the relative luxuries of a zed vs an Elise!

Nice intro :thumbs:

 

You will find the original clickly axle thread in 350 Guides, but for many there is an alternative option here:

 

 

Noting where you live, on last but one page of that ^^^ guide you will see one of our traders based near Rochester posted a great offer with having a service done there to fix the issue, albeit back in 2016. Not sure if that still applies but worth an ask.  Highly recommend Kaizer and as a specialist and it would a good opportunity to have your new ride checked out ...........having bought with heart and not the head as you described :lol: 

 

Just a word of caution if your Zed is a rev-up model (March 2006 onwards) is to regularly check the oil level as they can be prone to early engine wear, not helped if fed with less than 98 octane.

 

Keep us posted how you get on :thumbs:
