It looked so much more advanced than my 350z and was such a nice base project

 

So had the wheels in my head and these looked pretty cool but got so many different ideas i still cant decide

So in my head is wheels, wrapping, air suspension that kind of thing however im just enjoying it for now and decidng what to do first

 

Hope you enjoy the updates :)

So first mod had to be some sort of my own connect premium which i really like which involves all this..

I have full control of ipod, usb, bluetooth audio and all that jazz just like a connect premium

Also one big advantage to this kit is its improved the sound quality drastically!

In the shop :) making all the wires messy :-(

Now i normally fit all this myself but really didnt want to get anything wrong so left it to the experts lol

Bit of a rubbish last pic but you get the idea.. Nice little screen next to the gear stick and shows all the album artwork which i like :)

 

So serval tanks later i changed the plates to the smallest legal possible

Here's a quick comparison

Such a shame to have holes behind the front plate but i did remove the front plate plinth

Much better all simply clean now

I did also buy a snooper but have taken it out since as ive now bought a road angel :)

 

So to say the least im luving the upgrade and was by far the best choice so glad i got the 370 now

As i say the upgrades so far are

 

My own connect premium ;)

New smaller plates

Snooper system

 

Ive also got coming a new gear knob as i really dont like the standard 370z gearknob but this one is extended :) also the road angel is on the way too!

 

So yeah this blog should involve air ride, wrap, wheels

hopefully

but you never know im just driving it for now especially through the winter :)

I'm looking at the accuair e-lever system or v2 autopilot but still reserching and seeing whats what basically

 

Enjoy :)

Very very fond of this car. It's the reason I bought my 370 and I have followed it down to the south coast, up through Scotland, countless times in Wales and all around the south east.

 

Hope it gives you lots of pleasure, she's a cracker.

She's more alive now even after the 2nd tune and there is a massive difference in torque! The 3rd to 4th gear pull is massive.. The pipes do make a difference! She's abit louder too :)
