    Thanks for those suggestions. From the photos you provided, the locations look perfect.

    I live in Hornsby, but I'm not too fussed about the location as long as it's within the Sydney area.

    Recommended industrial sites in Sydney for automotive photography
    Hi guys.

    I recently purchased a Canon DSLR and was hoping to make use of this expensive camera and take some amateur photos of my car (370z coupe). Can anyone recommend any good industrial locations or even car parking lots in Sydney that I can take interesting photos of my car on a Sunday? Not too keen on the well known sites such as opera house, North heads, Harbour bridge etc. If anyone knows of any hidden gems then that would be fantastic!

    Btw I am not keen on professional photography shoots as the purpose of this exercise is to make use of my camera and lens kit and improve my photography skills. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Gunmetal Grey is my favorite. I currently have pearl white and regret not getting the Grey colour. The black on the 370z doesn't look that IMHO.

    The z35 concept looks okay but the 370z still looks much better. Will be interesting to see how the final design looks.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Really appreciated.
     
    I've decided to go for 19x9 + 29 [F] and 19x10 +15 [R] -  those specs are conservative, but it's street legal. Work Gnostics GS2. I'll post some pics up when the wheels arrive.

    Advice for new aftermarket Work Wheels (19 inch)
    Gday folks,
     
    I am in the market for new wheels and since I am a noob when it comes to fitment and clearance, I haven't a clue what is going on (forgive me for asking some obvious questions).
     
    Currently I am running the stock 18inch wheels on my 370Z and I am looking to purchase some after market 19 inch Work Wheels (e.g. XD9, Gnosis) that will fit well without spacers. I have been told that thorough research needs to be conducted as our super sized Akebono Brakes limit the choice of Work Wheels we can put on our cars.
     
    What specifications would you recommend (e.g. offset, width) as a good setup? Overall, it doesn't have to be aggressive, and I intend to keep the car at stock height and definitely do not want to use spacers.
     
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
     
    Thanks.
     
    Ed

    Took the fuse out this afternoon. Thought I would conduct a pre-emotive strike before I encountered the problem in the future.
    The hardest part was putting the cowl top cover on!

    Replacing battery in the Key Fob (2009 370z)
    Hi all.
     
    After four years, the battery in my intelligent Key Fob is close to running out.
     
    At the moment I am putting the Key Fob in the slot (aka Fobgina) located at the right hand side of the steering wheel so that I can start the car without the warning sign popping up.
     
    Apart from going to a Nissan dealership to replace the battery, has anyone on this forum replaced the battery themselves? If so, would it be recommended to use a special Lithium Ion battery or will a Duracell be sufficient? Also how do you "pull apart" the Fob and replace the battery?
     
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
     
    FYI - the car is a '09 370z.
     
    I have included a photo that indicates the battery in the Key Fob is close to flat.

  14. ekin200 added a post in a topic OEM Nismo Rays 19" Wheels - Where to buy??   

    Try confidyne Motorsports. They have a couple sets of new nismo 19 inch wheels with brand new tyres. They are in Tasmania but they are offering a reasonable price of 3.5k. That's good value as it is very close to brand new.

    The wheels definitely suit your z!
