So i thought it was long overdue.    I bought my Import 05 Gunmetal Z with Alezan leathers in 2010.   First thing was the N1 Nismo kit all round.   And shortly after Volk

Detailed the car a couple weeks back. (lockdown!)   Used a DAS Pro DA and some Koch chemie H8 02 cutting compound and M3 02 finishing to fully correct the paint. This was after a full decont

I always make sure I have a supply of Gtechniq C4/C1/C5.

Never been brave enough to do the whole car but do the wheels yearly along with plastic trims and headlights.

 

Your rims are so glossy I thought for a moment they had diamond cut faces!B)

Thanks, thats what i was going for :thumbs:

 

I dont have a garage so dont think i can do the paintwork and TBH i dont really want to , i like applying sealants/waxes and enjoying the results. Also as i like to correct scratches etc i would be forever reapplying the ceramic :dry:.

 

Would probably be worth doing the headlights to protect the clearcoat with C1, the Depo ones may start to peel after a while.

 

Where on the Z do you tend to use the C4?

C1/4/5 are all the same so if there is an offer, I'll buy any of the 3.

I occasionally use the C4 on the plastics that the wing mirrors attach to.

Also got it on my headlights after correcting them last week.

Yep, As Headphones says, C1, C4 & C5 are all the same product..GTechniq are open about too; they release it as multiple products because generally people can't cope with the idea that one product can do it all well (jack of all trades, master of none is very much the archetype it's trying to avoid) so release it under products.

No major changes recently. Bought and painted some fiberglass eyelids some months back. I couldn't make my mind up if i wanted to fit them or not, but they turned out nice so thought i would fit em and see how they look. Pretty happy with it, very aggressive.

 

Some pics of how it stands currently

Some other plans for the near future. An additional APS component + remap. And some other bits n bobs.

Really nice Z! Awesome wheels! 
 

any idea what offsets they are? I’m looking to run 9.5” on the front 

I currently have 9.5 +23 on the front of mine and have also run 10.0 +25 . The latter is very close to the upright - probably about 4mm gap, but never hit it.

 

Ideal would be a 9.5 +30 with a 660mm tall tyre to keep optimal scrub radius. (255/40/18 , 255/35/19) This would give a very small stretch (supposedly good for sidewall stiffness/turn-in) , edge of the wheel will be ideal poke and the tyre will tuck lovely under the arches. Even my Trofeo R 265/35/19 which are actually as wide on the shoulder as a UHP 285 tyre tuck under without issue.

Right: Ive had the terrible Bose system since ive owned the car, and being an import its even worse:

I dont listen to music much but i did really want a modern solution with good sat nav and intuitive interface. Something that would look modern and well integrated. 

 

So, out with the Bose

And in with the new

Its a purpose made kit to install a Galaxy Tab A 10.1" (or a Lenova i believe) into the Zed.

It ticks alot of boxes for me, the functionality and size of the tablet is just so nice compared to other options i considered. The app is designed for the tablet to be used in a car. It allows you to launch and control things easily with custom gestures etc. 

Was a pretty easy install and im very happy with it so far. The kit comes with an amp which has extra USB sockets for anything you might want to add,  DAB dongle, USB cable etc. 

 

The tablet is easily removable as the silver bezel is held on with strong magnets. Thus you can remove the tablet in a few seconds for security or to use it as a normal tablet if you want. 

 

The only problem i have, which seems common with head unit upgrades in the Zed, is a low but persistent buzzing noise. Seems to be something to do with the rear amp in the boot, But im not sure what to do to resolve it. 

 

Anyway let me know what you guys think!
