Newbie with 2007 350z Nismo

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Dean here, currently living out in Osaka, Japan. Originally from Aberdeen.

 

Just bought a 2007 350z Nismo, apart from the alloys and MCR exhaust, fairly standard car. Engine in good condition with FSH, body has some areas where I need to get the paint touched but and the interior is in decent condition, need to fix some plastic panels and change the steering wheel.

 

Not sure what the plans will be with the car, first step will be to fix up the parts of the car that require attention. 

 

Now have to wait 4 weeks for the car, apparently they need this amount of time to register the car.

Looks in great condition, can you tell me is the plastic arch extension there for a reason? Becouse i have them on my 370 nismo and see them being a potential water trap;)

The arch extensions are just part of the nismo body kits.  On the 350z at least they are stuck on to the original arches so no real benifit apart from styling. I think the 370z is the same but not had one so I can't say for sure.

Hi Paul, hopefully at some point send it home to UK. If I keep it here in Japan for a year, I believe I don't have to pay tax when sending it home.

I joined the N.Ireland forum due to it looking fairly lively, wasn't much going on in Scotland. Good bunch, so stuck around.

Ok mate thanks for that, can't make up my mind wether to leave them on or take them off;)

A good bunch of us Scottish guys are on the Facebook Zcotland group.

I get more soon. Its in having the bumpers freshened up along with the roof, mirrors and rear wing sprayed silver again as a previous owner had the painted dark grey. Which does look nice but I want it as oem as possible.

Also - only came on JDM market 350 Nismos. North American Nismos don't have the arch extensions.

 

 

I want them!!
