PintofBrew added a topic in Interior / ExteriorDo I have HID lights?Afternoon all,
Im away from my car at the moment and I cant figure out whether I have HID or Halogen low beam lights.. (aka normal light when i drive around at night)
When I flick my headlights on into normal light mode (2 clicks) it goes really bright for half a second then dims to normal light. It looks white as far as I can tell if that makes any difference?
It's an 2003 Track model
Cheers in advance

PintofBrew added a topic in Brakes & SuspensionBad LHF Strut to bearing and top mount rubberHi guys
I recently had my car serviced down at Dandenong Nissan (which were great btw), and found that an annouying squeak I had from my front left was a issue going from the LHF strut to bearing and also the top rubber.
I will be clarifying this tomorrow, but I wanted to know on here if its worth simply replacing not just the front left strut but the struts all around the vehicle with coilovers, as I was quoted that to get a OEM part from Japan for the LHF would cost me $1500 (same price almost as some MCA Blues). Would the coilovers essentially resolve that problem?

PintofBrew added a topic in General Z Car DiscussionsShould I keep my 350Z?Hi all,
I've barely had my 350Z for 4-5 months and already I'm feeling weary of my purchase
I purchased it with my heart... Loving Z's of all kinds without ever owning one or realizing how many 'basic' problems could probably arise...
Transmission, fuel gauge giving funky numbers, rear axle click upon changing gears at low speed etc.
I purchased mine originally for 15K and since then have spent:
$800 on fixing control arms etc (my fault didn't have car checked prior to purchase)
$On new brake pads and machining discs after some guy did a botch job
$1600 on new enkei's
$700 on tyres
$900 on new head unit, sub and 6.5 splits (and still have to install but doing myself)
Car has been resprayed before as well.
And whats actually broke the camels back is my fifth gear is grinding a bit of I change gears without paying attention and 'I think' my clutch slave cylinder is starting to go... (probably a throw out bearing to who knows....) Considering the purchase of a CD009 transmission from ConceptZ (1650 US atm) But it would be at least $600-700 AUS to install and that's not including freight costs.
From the outside the car looks amazing, I get looks all the time from all sorts which is nice (because its a 2003 car). But I can't believe I might be spending close to 1/3 of purchase price of the car. The only thing that can be said is that it has full service history (serviced every 5K's).
It's my fault a bit but sometimes I wish I could have just bought a Auto Camry
What do you guys think?
