    Shock Absorbers
    I would like to upgrade the shock absorbers on my 2003 Nissan 350Z Touring Z33. Does anyone know if Bilstein Shocks are compatible with this model?

    It’s a small drop but gives the car a better stance imo. Looks better in person too. 
    I’ve only pushed it through the streets. I’m gonna go for a drive through the Nash or Putty Rd This weekend. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Thats basically what sort of setup id want to go tbh, still looks really smart and nothing ridiculously low for street driving. Have you done any spirited driving yet? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sure thing. The car definitely can go lower. I’ll wait till I get new rims to play with the height settings a bit more.
    I was able to keep my front and rear camber and toe the same as well.

    looking for any suggestions as to whats wrong with my 2009 350z . ive spent 5 grand and Launceston Nissan have had my car for seven months trying to fix it . they have been in contact with Nissan technical but still no results . it comes up with an engine management light and also misses for a split second on take off  , so I take it in and they scan it and just keep replacing whatever part shows up .I get about three hours driving out of it every time before it goes off again . ive replaced the left hand bank oxygen sensor in it , replaced the IPDM fuse box & relay module , a new crank position sensor and had the injectors tested to make sure the spray pattern Is right .  they also pulled the gearbox out and made sure that was right . has anybody else had a similar issue and what was the fix ?  
    thanks brad

    I had the Tein’s installed today and had time to play with the settings. 
    At halfway all round. The car feels a little bit firmer than stock. Very comfortable and not crashy over bumps. 
    At two clicks back from the hardest setting, the car’s a bit firmer but not uncomfortable. The cars very planted and extremely predictable. Points really well and doesn’t have much body roll at all. 
    I lowered the front 30mm and the rear 25mm and I’m having no problems over speed humps. I’ve changed my angle when I go up my driveway and I’m not getting any scrapes at all. 
    Pretty stoked at my purchase😁

    Hi, First time Z car owner - Perth.
    G’day Guy’s,
    I bought myself a 2008, 350Z earlier today. I had a neighbour that had a 240Z in ac crappy brown (no pun intended) colour when I was about 11yo that I thought was the coolest car ever. Quite a while back now, 03 or 04, I got to do a few laps around Wanneroo Raceway in Perth, in a colleagues    first year 03’, I believe 350Z. I had done a lot laps there in mainly V8 Commodores and Falcons (police pursuit vehicles) and the Z was leaps and bounds ahead of those in handling terms on that track and gave nothing away in performance. In fact it was quicker than every police car I’d driven there bar a few WRX’s and Falcon Turbo XR6’s, off the line and in top speed. 
    So about the car. I’ve been on the hunt for a while for a 350Z. Why the 350Z over a 370Z, I can say honestly that I prefer the look of the 350’s over the 370, especially the last of the 350’s with the M3 like bonnet bulge. Having said that if I won one in a lottery etc, I’d happily live with the 370. Also Ive had a Few WRX & STI’s in the past but I’ve been thinking of buying an old school, air cooled, 993 Porsche 911 and I wanted to dip my toe into the whole very low, two seater’, sports car thing to see if it’s for me in the longer term. I’m middle aged, 6’3 & I get a sore back & knees, so I have to know if the “ingress and egress” is going to literally be a pita (pun intended) , 6-8 months down the track. 
    So as the heading said I purchased a 2008, Touring, I think it is in the Carbon Silver colour. It’s as good an example as I think one could reasonably be expected to find. It has an auto transmission, I just heard you all sigh in unison in disgust. I had only looked at manual cars, particularly the “Track model”. I was trying to hunt down something in excellent condition (giving the poor things some concessions for old age), unmodified, as close to stock as possible & with the service docs. If your after a “Roadster”, well they are an easy find. As I’d been holding out for a 6 speed manual......the months and km’s spent driving around the have netted me mostly disappointment & it seemed that nearly all the cars in W.A. we’re going to break my heart. Only because, I assume people with the cherry cars are holding onto them ? So after many disappointing car hunting sessions, I thought I’m going to need to look at 370 Z to get a car meeting my standards and criteria. Then yesterday I decided to have a look at an auto that was close by me for shits and giggles. Well the car drove incredibly well, the auto box in D works great, not so much in manual mode, where it takes too long to grab the next gear for my liking. I also don’t understand why many jap and euro manufacturers of pedestrian vehicles don’t rig the “novelty sports shift” so it at least shifts like a proper sequential box. Pull back to change up and forwards to change down. It went well and the car, an 05’ had all the attributes I was looking for and only 56000k’s, so as you do, I walked away to go home to have a bit of a think or rethink about buying an auto.
    Then last night I was checking gumtree and carsales and found another auto, an 08’ with 145000km but it looked as clean as a whistle, no mods, a comprehensive service history and the newer HR motor. Thankfully it wasn’t too far away from home and I went and had a look and I thought if this drives as good as it looks I’m buying it. It did, I did and here I am. 
    Hopefully I’ll pick it up either tomorrow or on Tuesday and I will report back and post up a NZD (New Z day) with loads of pics. I have no performance mods in mind but I’d like to see if the auto can be made to change up a bit quicker in manual mode. I don’t think I’ll worry about coil overs but I probably will get some Bilstein shocks and new springs fitted up in the not too distant future and will definitely be looking at an exhaust that sounds a lil more.....angry, if I can pick up a few hp doing it well and good if not I’m happy with 230kw, I think a new audio head unit with a DVD player and Apple Music is also on the cards. Probably too on my list of  change’s. I’d like to stay with bose, to keep it looking factory but I’m not sure if anyone is doing bose (I think bose audio can only be sold by bose but I’m not seeing bose car audio in Perth. If someone could point in the direction of a bose head unit that fits in Oz with the features mention above that’d be great. Failing that I’ll check out a few car stereo specific shops in the next few days to consider other options that fit.
    I’d love to hear about other people’s experiences with exhausts and any suspension components that differ from the direction I’m heading in if you feel they would be a better fit for the car over my choices / plans above. I will probably look at changing out small components like OEM bushes and exhaust hangers etc, that should probably should have replaced long ago. 
    Well thank you for reading, that was a smig long winded. Sayonara till next time.

    There was a shop in Victoria, Cougar Motorsports or something like that doing the kit supplied and fitted for just over 14k at the time, not sure if anybody has been to them but I saved it because it sounded cheap considering the cost of just the kit on AAM's website.

    bump for an old thread.  Would they all have a base map (uprev) to load into your car ? they just check the air/fuel mixture to double check.  Prob no more than one or two hours max

    Thanks for the advice, much appreciated. I was trying to avoid importing but I guess that's my only option if I want something decent.

    Not a whole bumper, but JSAI Aero do rear pods.

    If you're set on a bumper, best bet is to look overseas, Amuse is fairly popular (but mostly as a whole kit), the two versions of Nismo, Varis, etc.

    Fujimura and Evo-R also do rear diffusers if you're going down the add stuff on route like with JSAI.

    Hi mate,
    Welcome to the forums.
    Just make 5 posts and you will be able to sell in the For Sale sections.
    Let me know if you have any issues.
    Good luck!

    Hi everyone.  New to the site. Not new to Nissan,which i've had for 16 years, had 180sx, 32GTR and my pride and joy, VQ35HR twin turbo powered Sil80.  All of which sadly are now gone. 
    I've joined to hopefully sell my last remaining VQ bits.  Brian Crower stroker crank and Carrillo rods. Hope my intro will allow to post in the for sale section and hopefully offer you guys some bits if you're after them. 
    If an Admin can advise what i need to do to post, it would be appreciated. I had a ready through but didn't find any info on this. 
    Thanks in advance.
