Old Member, New Nismo!


Recommended Posts

Evening boys and girl's!

 

So some of you may remember my 350z. I let her go a couple weeks ago which was pretty gutting but I knew something bigger and better was on the way

So with that being said, I'd been saving for the last year and a half and what with 2020 being such a drip, I decided to treat myself. 

 

Which lead me to find this, my 2016 Nismo. It's a one owner car with 34K on the clock and full nissan service history. It has been lowered already and has wheel spacers fitted, but other then that is a bone standard immaculate car. Its easy to say I'm thrilled with it

 

Collection day, at the Dealership

Had to travel down to Exeter for it, the 200 mile drive back was great fun. Honestly, I'm still terrified of her and feel very protective haha. 

 

Let's be honest, we all know I'm going to modify it, but not just yet. Im after just enjoying the car for now. Heres a few photos of the night I got her home

Olly. Enjoyed out many chats during the purchasing process and chuffed to bits for you. Remember talking to you about you getting one several years ago at Incarnation. The dream has now been realised. Catch up soon.

:clap::clap:

Hi buddy nice upgrade i have gone down the same road, do you know how much has it been lowered, and what size spaces you are running on:teeth:

Put Tein s springs on mine, lowered an inch and 20mm/15mm spacers if that helps.

Not updates as such, but I did fit LED rear numberplate units which update it no end, they're so bright and crystal white

And then today I was able to give it it's first proper wash. Why does a car finally feel like yours when you're able to give it a wash

Nice work Oli. Change the interior light bulbs on the interior light. Good mod to do too.

 

Yeah I've been looking at various LED bulbs, but they not festoon bulbs like I thought they were, they're 501's! Ideally I'd like to get the LED rear indicator and reverse bulbs as well but the first set ive fitted hyperflash :angry: 

 

In the long run I'm thinking Nismo V1 spoiler, Ark grip V2, tinted windows and subtle carbon fibre interior upgrades. Not rushing into modifications yet though

So an update, and the mods are starting slowly but surely. Took a trip down to twilight tint in Chichester today to get my rear three windows tinted, this is my 3rd car they've done as their work is simply superb. Such courteous friendly people and very good at what they do. Speaks volumes that I've been going back and they remember me!

No other pictures for now as the car is beyond filthy... but more to come

Nissan are so strange, the Mrs 06 Note came with factory tints which all the SVE's did but a flagship sports car doesn't - crazy

 

Funny I had the same thought. Can only assume the reasoning was as visibility isn't great as it is, it would only make it worse. But then again its already noticeable how little I'm being dazzled by cars behind, so its a win in my books

Happy new year everyone! 

 

A couple of small updates from over the Xmas period, keeping the modifications small and sensible for now however there were a few bits over the period. 

 

The one area that let the car down was the red fins on the front bumper were quite heavily marked, so que the Mrs treating me to two new ones, which need to be fitted. Going to get the old ones painted so I can mix and match as I choose

Next up was a GTR start button, really shocked at the difference one little button has made to the inside

 

20201227_135629.jpg.e1bf3c47386cd6a7ec86030c7b174e66.jpg

 

Gave the interior a good spruce up today, as it hadn't been touched much over the last few weeks. Getting ready for the future bits to be done
