2006 Model changes

Recommended Posts

A list written up by ir-fuel.

 

Here is what they told me on 350zuk.com

 

These are the changes to the interior -

 

1. Shiny Air-Con Knobs

 

2. Soft-touch plastic/better quality plastic all around you.

 

3. More shiny aluminiumey bits.

 

4. Better position for the hazard warning light switch.

 

5. better position for the heated seat switches.

 

6. Nicer, bigger, illuminated buttons on the steering wheel

 

7. Illuminated cup holders (in doors)

 

8. Coin tray in dashboard

 

9. More/ better storage near the handbrake area

 

10. Bluetooth integrated phone module as standard

 

11. Speed-sensitive power steering

 

12. Lighter clutch pedal (I prefer this)

 

13. material covering in door pockets.

 

14. Improved button on dashboard cubby door.

 

15. Nicer rear strut bar cover.

 

16. slightly nicer "tonneau cover"

 

yeah, the bottle holders in the doors,

 

Ali bezels round the guages, which I just noticed reflect the red from the needles and look really schweeeet,

 

card holder in dash,

 

Dash cubby door that actually fits,

 

Double bottle/cup holder in the centre console,

 

Bigger knee pads,

 

bigger passenger net,

 

Bi zenon headlamps,

 

LED tail lamps,

 

Annoying ding when you go over 15mph without the seatbelt on,

 

Redesigned front bumper, wider at the bottom, looks lower to me too, less slats on the grille, which are now gunmetal not cheapo looking black plastic,

 

more as I fink of em

 

...now to continue the list of improvements -

 

Of course there's the 296bhp engine (up by 20bhp)

 

There's a new redline of 7,000rpm (up by 400rpm)

 

Variable Valve Timing on the exhausts as well as the inlets

 

18" Rays Alloys as standard wheels

 

2 colour improvements - Pearlescent Black (Ebisu) and something else that I can't remember

I think what this means is more luxury less of a sports car

 

 

ehm, i can hardly understand why changing the position of certain buttons and changing the color of some things make it less of a sports car :headhurt:

^^^^^^

 

Less a sports car maybe due to the added weight to the 2006 model, less stiff clutch, speed sensitive power steering, more cupholders/storage space than a family car....

Just a bit, not enough to notice it I think. I was just trying to defend the 03-05 model :p:teeth:
