    GT Haus cold start
    One thing I have heard is a bit of a rattle when the idle settles. Otherwise not a bad sound. Very loud initially. And when you give it some stick well, it's incredible. Fills the cabin with this wonderful rumble. Man, it has taken ten years off my age, heheh.

  4. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Choice of exhaust for 370GT   

    I agree. Invidia seem to provide the best brap for your buck while providing a decent system.
    I went with GT Haus. Second hand, but great sound.

    Speedo telling porkies
    Took the 370 for a run up the highway and kept getting passed by just about everyone and I am thinking hmmm. this aint right. I'm doing the speed limit 110k and it feels slower than that. Went out a week later with the old tom tom sat nav and it confirmed what I thought. My speedo is about 10kph higher in the car than satnav. I think there are old threads on this topioc but wondered if there was a solution?
    thanks
    Peter

  7. big hugh ness added a post in a topic What's your normal voltage reading?   

    Mine only ever sits at around 13, so mine's probably a bit low. Yours is probably running fine.
  8. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Why did you decide to buy a Z?   

    Totally agree with everything you said. Were you into performance vehicles before you settled on a z?
  9. big hugh ness added a post in a topic New to zclub considering a 370z   

    I owned an 86 for about one month. Great car, pretty quick, very nimble around town, great looking. Just about everything you would need, I thought.
    And then I drove a Z.
    A week later the 86 was on the market.
    Depends on what you are after I guess. That 86 was so light and that little engine was so revy. It was aching for a squirt around a track. Seems like that is what it was made to do best. The Z, to me, is like a GT, Grand Tourer. Bit of a lump to lug around, plenty of grunt, lots of lux. Every time I get in the Z I feel like I am sitting in something very special. That is what did it for me. I'd give you a run in mine but I am in cockroach country.  Good luck. You WILL love it!

    um, what?
  11. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Bridgestone Potenza RE050A or RE003's?   

    Ta mate. I'll take that into consideration. 
    Peter.
  12. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Bridgestone Potenza RE050A or RE003's?   

    Thanks mate. That's good to know.
  13. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Been a member since 2010 and STILL haven't got my z! SIGH!   

    Thanks mate. She was clean. Must have a bit of k9 in her because she found all the mud puddles you could find along the way.
  14. big hugh ness added a post in a topic Been a member since 2010 and STILL haven't got my z! SIGH!   

    Here she is! My new toy! Finally after years of friggin' around, I've got one!

    Bridgestone Potenza RE050A or RE003's?
    gents. 
    Just checking what sort of tyre Jax could do for me and their website came up with the RE050 (around $510 each) as their choice of tyre when I selected their drop down menu items, 
    but isn't that a redundant tyre?
    Tyresales.com.au have the RE003 for about seventy bucks less at $433 a corner. 
    Jax don't list an RE003 in 273/35/19 (I think this is what's on the car at the moment) However, they're having a $150 cashback at the moment, but you have to buy 4 tyres. Even 
    with the cashback they are still dearer than 4 tyres from tyresales.com.au
