Khaled added a topic in Engine & Drivetrain370z clutch?Hi everyone:)
Just looking to replace my clutch on my 370z and need a bit of guidance in terms of quality and prices.
Not looking for a performance clutch, just something comfortable to drive daily.
I've realised some performance clutches are more expensive than OEM.

DmanDuc added a topic in Interior / ExteriorNismo front end.Hey there Z'dsters.
I'm loving the Nismo front end on the z'ds.
I've searched online. checked out heaps of different styles and decided on a Stillen front end, i reckon they look absolutely sic on the front of a z'd...... Looking further into it and pricing from the US it was radically expensive to buy and freight out here to the mid nth coast and paint. After a considerable amount of aganising, over thinking and head aches from thinking to much about Z'd front ends i decided to go with the Nismo front end off a Z'd which i can buy from a business in Queensland.
Investigating further........ i find an after market place online that has heaps of different moulds and what do you know they have a Nissan Nismo front end in Duraflex or fibreglass moulds. Happy as.....
I investigate further and i'm reading horror stories from guys that have done the conversion.
Nothing lines up......... A / m moulds don't fit oem parts on car etc etc.
So i read on and i find a profiler's comment that say's order from Nissan dealer cause everything will line up and fit......... Makes sense right......
Now me being from the motor cycle racing world, i know first hand how much fitting after market moulds or fairing on a bike can be and its a massive pain in the arse.
So i run with the idea and i'm contacting my local Nissan dealer......... I ask for spare parts and the guy answers the phone and away i go asking for a Nismo front apron.
No i'm sorry, i'm told that you will have to contact a Nissan Nismo dealer........ and order....
Oh i say......Ok that's cool. So i ask him ........Is Suttons Nissan in Sydney a Nissan Nismo dealer.
He asks his counterpart and i hear him say yes i think so.
So i ring Suttons Nissan Chullora and i ask to purchase a Nismo front end.....
Here is the annoying part.
No I'm sorry Nismo parts are strictly for Nismo cars only.
So let me get this straight. You wont sell me a nissan genuine nismo product but yet i can buy a copy of it and have it delivered to my door and i get it anyway, it just doesnt say Nissan on it..........
What the hell Nissan Australia....... I'm annoyed and not a happy Nissan Z'd customer.

DmanDuc added a topic in Interior / ExteriorZ'dstersHey there Z'dsters.
So after reading all the comments about rim size and style, im now hesitant to change them. Its a lot of money out laid for something that could go horribly wrong.
Firstly im not a lover of my 2012 rims... hence the reason for change.
To be honest with you all, im now confused as hell and don't really no which way to turn.
I find that im varying from the 19" because of the other styles and makes of rim that i like but are not made in a 19" .
This Z'd is my first real nice car that is my baby as all of my vehicles have been high powered motorcycles so the Z'd relm is a learning curve to me.
Ozzy tyres has two rims i'm considering, 1. is a 20" x 8.5 gloss black rim called ( pro drag PD1 ) now its a 8.5 inch width, which after researching can accomadate a tyre width from 225mm to 255mm.
The 2nd rim im considering is a Vertini drift 19" x 8.5. colour to be decided.
So after reading everyone's input i really am confused as to which way i should go and colour really.
My Z'd is a 2012 Montery blue, and she is stock as a rock. Her shoe size's are.... Front: 245/40 x 19. Rear: 275/35x19.
They are Achilles tyres and i do not recommend, i find they are hopeless in the wet, crappy handling and helps the car understeer even more, and milage was lame and quite noisy........
So wheel and tyre package is needed for my baby girl......
So in your opinion guyz do you think the 20" rims a waste of money for the Z'ds.
And would you consider 17 / 18" deep dish rims and why. would it cause complications being a smaller wheel etc etc.
if you guys and gals don't mind.......... Some proper education on this matter would be seriously appreciated.

mapanp added a topic in Interior / ExteriorESCL ekectronic steelring lockHi All
lust wondering if anyone else has had electronic steering lock (ESCL) issues, you will come back to you car after going out to find it will not start, initially you may think that your battery is flat but the ESCL may be the problem. if the yellow key light emblem is on then thats what it probably is. Could not start my 2012 370Z this morning, yellow key light was on and car would not go to AAC to start, called NRMA and after two hours (and a new battery) the car would not start, had it towed to an auto electrician.
Did a bit of a google search and found this was a common and reported problem overseas, so much so that Nissan USA did a voluntary recall, yet when you call the local Nissan dealer or Nissan Australia they have never heard of the issue.
Found some useful youtube videos on how the over-ride the steerling lock and may do this if the cost of repair is way too much

paracin added a topic in 370Z Wheels & Tyres18x10 +22 or 20x10 +42 with spacers – what would be your personal preference?I'd appreciate your assistance with my dilema. Here is a case study: For your 370Z you are considering Lenso Project D D1R, because you’re trying to achieve this look. Front sizes are fine but the only sizes available for the rear are 18x10 +22 (you'd add 5-10mm spacers) and 20x10 +42 (with 25-30mm spacers). In 18’s you’d go for 255/45 front and 275/40 for the rear because they can still be found reasonably priced. In 20’s, any size is fine.
What would you choose and what’s your reasoning behind it?
