    Cougar Motorsports were doing the AAM kit installed for 14.3k. Don't know anything about them though or if it's still valid.

    There's not enough room behind just the screen unfortunately. Mounting a tablet is your best bet of keeping the A/C etc. One of the Sydney guys is trying to mount an iPad Mini so we'll see how that goes, but it'd likely be via Bluetooth to the AUX.

    I was looking into sourcing a U.S. base model system (fascia, cubby, and the A/C controls), but that's no longer happening. The defroster hasn't been figured out yet (you need to re-wire the A/C controls to accept the base dials, I was thinking of wiring in the plug needed in-line so you have both in case you ever want to switch back)

    Out west, sent you a PM
  4. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic Invidia HFC   

    I'm in Sydney unfortunately, was about to suggest that though as we're planning a meet this Sunday.

    I'll see what I can do, but like I said, bit hard to find somewhere where you can do it without drawing attention etc
  5. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic Invidia HFC   

    I don't but I'll try and see if I can get some (bit hard to find a spot where you can rev it without any dramas)

    I would suggest listening in person though, exhaust videos hardly ever show you properly (due to variation in position of cameras etc) besides a rough idea of the tone.

    You may want to consider buying a used standard replacement, and getting them modified (painted, etc). That may still end up a fair bit cheaper, and they'll perform better if you do stuff like upgraded lenses, modified cut-off shield, etc.

    Got one with the Gemini CBE, it got noticeably louder after installing the HFC.

    For CEL (check engine), it's luck of the draw with any cats or test pipes. Even with extenders, etc, you can still get them, there's no such thing as a "guaranteed no CEL". But a tune easily sorts that...
  8. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic ESCL ekectronic steelring lock   

    Mine has been replaced by Nissan previously, found a sticker after I bought the car.

    Personally, I would try the "banging on it and yanking the fuse" trick, that way you'll never have issues in the future. Basically just hit roughly where the steering lock unit is, and get it to turn to ACC, then go pull the fuse while it's still unlocked (either On or in ACC).
  9. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic 18x10 +22 or 20x10 +42 with spacers – what would be your personal preference?   

    30mm spacer sounds like a bit much, 20 would be the highest I would go if I were to run them (but I'm biased, not a fan of spacers in general). Tyre size sounds good though, square setup would probably make the car even more fun.

    I'm selling a set of Kiwami's in silver if interested, staggered set, tyres aren't great. Let me know if you want further details.
  10. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic 18x10 +22 or 20x10 +42 with spacers – what would be your personal preference?   

    Personally not a fan of spacers but I know a lot of people run them without issues, etc.

    For the Z, depending on the type of wheel you get, it may look small. The Lensos look like they may look a bit smaller due to the design (doesn't go all the way to the lip).

    The Work Kiwamis I had look bigger than the TE37's I have due to the design, Kiwamis go to the edge, TE37 has a bit of a lip like the Lenso. For this, maybe 20's are the way to go, but hard to say..
  11. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic FYI: Lenso Project D Spec F DO NOT fit MY13 370Z   

    Yeah they don't strike me as the type to go to for correct fitting wheels. Give Autocraze a try, not sure what they have in terms of stock. I got my Works from JDM Concept but he wouldn't have anything for test fitment.

    If you're interested in Work Kiwamis though, I'll have mine up for sale shortly
  12. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic FYI: Lenso Project D Spec F DO NOT fit MY13 370Z   

    Try Facebook, you'll likely get more replies, but I doubt there would be anybody. Are there brands with similar designs that are known to fit?

    I think I vaguely may have seen some Enkei and Vossen wheels with a similar design but not 100% sure.

    Also I guess be wary about the US etc if they don't have pictures of fitment, as they're more likely to do things like excessive camber and widebody kits to "make stuff fit".
  13. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic Wheels for sale   

    It really comes down to how patient you are, I wasn't bothered stuffing around so I sold my 370Z Enkei's (18", similar to those) for like $550. Could have probably got more if I left it longer.

    I'd aim for that as a bare minimum, mine were similar condition but had cheap tyres on the front from the previous owner. If those 350Z wheels are forged or anything like that, then add more on top of that.
  14. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic FYI: Lenso Project D Spec F DO NOT fit MY13 370Z   

    I didn't see anything on there about 10 +35, did you send them a message privately or something?

    All I saw was:
    "20x10 +15 (square setup)
    20x10 +15 Front / 20x12 +0 Rear"
    For the Z's you have to be very careful if it's an untested combination due to the brakes.
  15. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic AAM Competition Twin Turbo 370Z   

    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.
