From S2000 to 350Z

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Some of you may have seen my post in the wanted section a few weeks ago, I used to have a Honda S2000 which I loved, but it was time for a change and I wanted a 350z.

 

My old S2000:

Shortly after selling it, I picked up my 350,

 

Details are:

 

2006 car

Completely standard

really happy with it, over the last few weeks i've carried out a few small mods which include:

 

Remove front number plate holder

Private plate

LED rear number plate lights

LED Sidelights

Sprayed bottom of bumper black

Black nissan and 350z badges

Thanks for the welcome and comments guys!

 

The S2000 was fantastic, and superb to drive. I just wanted something newer and more suitable as a daily driver.

 

I am loving the 350 though!

 

One question i had, my car is a 2006 but doesn't have the LED rear lights, so i'm guessing it's not a facelift with slightly more power?

 

It does fall into the high tax band though?

 

I thought 2006 car had a slight facelift and a bit more power.

The easiest way to tell if you have a genuine facelift is the interior, as it's a B*stard to swap out so no one does it. You should have a large silver gear surround on the facelift compared to the small silver ring surrounded by plastic in the pre-facelift. Also if you can turn on the heated seats accidentally with your left elbow then you have a pre-facelift. It's not unheard of for a non-facelift to be on an early '06 plate so if this is the case with yours, It's nothing to worry about, all still legit.

Thanks, I think it's a pre-facelift model then as I have a silver ring around the gear stick.

 

Thanks for clearing that up!

It does fall into the high tax band though? Then it is a facelift

 

I thought 2006 car had a slight facelift and a bit more power. It does - 296bhp compared to 276bhp

Here is an internal pic of my previous 2006 facelift - note the hazard warning light switch position in front of the gearlever as a quick and reliable reference even if trim bits have been swapped. (The phone holder is non-standard)
