Newbie here - 350z HR


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Newbie here - recently bought myself a Nissan 350z HR - had it around 2 months and loving it so far! 

I used the buyers guide and forum to find out what to look out for and it was really helpful :)

 

Ended up buying from Evo Motors if anyone is familiar with Mark - great service! 
Some pics below - its all pretty stock at the moment and will be largely keeping it that way. 

 

One purchase i have made is - Bilstein b12 pro kit which i hope will give it a bit better handling and improve damping. 

I also want to have the wheels set more flush with the body. Therefore i had a question regarding spacers.

 

Iv'e seen alot of people running these on the forums (largely 20m all round). With the new suspension is this sacrilege to then run spacers?

 

I think longer term ill be looking at some new wheels with ET15 offset as i know this is the better way to go - but obviously costs alot more than chucking some 15mm/20mm spacers on with the standard Rays. 

 

Be interested to hear your thoughts for those who do use spacers - do you notice and negatives running these and do you think its a worthwhile stop gap until i invest in some new alloys? 

 

Cheers, Andy

Welcome on board, another great looking Z.

I went for spacers, 20mm Front and 25mm Rear, bought from Tarmac Sports the Japan Racing ones and I have not had any issues. In my opinion makes the Rays sit better, fills the arches more as they looked lost before.

Enjoy.

When I was looking I saw a car for sale with 25mm spacers all round, and it looked great.  So that's what I would do personally.

 

Think I saw that car for sale when I was looking, was definitely tempting.

Welcome along Andy. Nice looking motor.

20mm spacers all round are fine for the Rays without compromising the handling.

Thanks alot for the feedback - very helpful! 

Think im going to go for 20mm all round :)

Welcome, lovely spec! I was also a bit sceptical about spacers but I spoke to a race engineer and he assured me there would be no difference. I went with 20mm all round and have been very happy since. Bought mine from Torqen :thumbs:  

Thanks Lewis - more good stuff to hear! Are you also running an aftermarket suspension out of curiosity?

Im getting my Rays refurbed soon - what recommendations do we have for colour? - im thinking a metallic gun metal or dark bronze, haven't seen many with anything other than the stock silver - thoughts welcome :)

Hi Andy, 

What a great looking car! I couldn’t help having a look through some 350z pages as I had a few (rare) spare minutes this morning. I recognised your car.. well the number plate. 

 

I sold it to Mark and you’re quite right.. what a great guy. I miss that car now; it’s really nice to see it so cared for. I looked after it. My favourite car owned still now. I want another car with a cassette player. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I particularly enjoyed the fact my friend had a non-HR model .. we’d argue about all that for hours. 
 

All the best to you both :) 

Jon
