Nissan '12 370z GT Edition

Recommended Posts

20131210_120503_zpsqxkslevz.jpg

 

Bit premature I know putting up a thread on a car I've yet to collect but its less than a week and the list of things Ive already bought for it is mounting

 

Bottle of touch up paint

Jeffs Werkstat Acrylic kit - meant to be excellent on white cars

Audio cable

LED bulbs to convert to DRL

 

Already looking at some performance modifications to get it to 350-360hp up from the stock 328hp

 

Apparently the R35 GTR start button is a straight swap for the white one on the 370z so that will be on the list also

First job on the list though is to paint the garage floor with epoxy paint this week

That's nice..... REALLY NICE!..... The wheels are stunning. Is it on OEM suspension, what's the insurance like?

Yep all stock . Insurance is cheap around £240 pa for me compared to £500 or so for the Skyline

 

Thinking about fitting spacers for solely cosmetic reason , whats your opinion on them Tony ?

At the rear fine, +15mm front is borderline assuming the cambers can be adjusted.

Right picked up my new toy yesterday

 

Would've struggled to pick a worse day weather or traffic wise but really wanted to collect it before xmas if possible.

 

Having done a bit more than a test drive I think I can comment a bit better . I tend to agree the stock exhausts are too muted , not that I could boot it but even so its far too quiet , but thats easily sorted 

 

Driving is great, feels well planted , hit some standing water yesterday and had a little moment but all in all feels great . Brakes are excellent , little sharp when cold but nice and progressive when warmer.

 

Grip is good its got the oem fit Bridgestone Potenzas on it currently. The integrated Sat Nav, head unit, phone kit is awesome , touch screen control works great.

 

Gearbox is good , I always think the sign of a good gearbox is you totally forget about changing gear and this does just that , can say i really noticed the shifts as well but i was on light throttle the whole time , economy wasnt bad either got around 29mpg average according to the display , a nice day would see than up 10% at least i reckon

 

Downsides are that exhaust , the lack of lumbar support on the seats perhaps as I had backache but that may have been that i was a bit tense driving my new car in such weather

 

Did a mini detail yesterday/last night , quick wash and polish will do for now , not done wheels or interior properly but wanted some protection on it as its being parked outside whilst i paint the garage floor over xmas

That looks awesome, congratulations! Nice xmas present too!

 

Is it a full on auto or a double clutch box?

Basic slush box not dsg. Tiptronic like my Skyline but has 7 gears so has a manual mode with flappy paddles , also does the auto blip on downshifting which is cool

 

Really didnt like the manual in the 350z , the dual mass flywheels chatter and the transmission borders on agricultural apparently its a "feature" .

Went over to Reading with the guy who bought my Skyline to take a few pics

 

These are just my snaps , expecting some of his over the next few days

 

Apart from fitting the Blackvue the only mod so far is the number plate LED bulbs , will do the front sidelights when the weather improves its a wheel off job so I'll give them a good clean at the same time

Do have one without the pillar, I find it very distracting and it's the first thing I look at rather than the car? I do like the composition and lighting though :)
