Hi everyone!

I currently own a 2015 Volkswagen Golf R and love it, fast and fun to drive. (please don't leave yet- LOL) Lately, I have been getting bored of it, and while at first I loved how subtle and sleeper like it looked- It just does not do it for me anymore, on top of some silly niggly issues that it has.

I sat in a Nismo 370z at a showroom last weekend, and was instantly drawn to the car, It has almost everything the R does (Only 2 powered wheels, not 4 haha)- But it does look amazing- like a fast/fun car should.

I have a couple of questions that I hope I can get answered- Ill admit that I only did a very quick search..

What sort of problems am I to expect mechanically/electronically? (My golf has had common issues like consuming oil and/or coolant- apparently common for that motor)

Best/Most common performance modifications? (I have seen limited things about Twin turbo kits and one intriguing turbo mounted with the exhaust- but I struggle to find anything from the slightly smaller mods-- Assume its probably headers, intake, catback, tune but Id still love to know)(Especaially anything helpful for the Australian market- not the US market)

Anything else that I should look out for? (ex. A friend of a friend of mine lost his warranty after using his launch control just once in his brand new Focus RS as that apparently is a thing in their t's and c's. (I dont know if I believe it but somehow also not surprised if it is true)

 

Thanks in advance everyone- Not sure how active internet forums are these days- been some time since I have been a part of an active car community online now..

Hi Mate, this forum has gone quite in recent times, a lot of discussion on the facebook site. It would be good if more posted in the topics/folders here, much easer to troll through etc. The site recently appeared to be taken over by spam posts but hopefully that has been resolved-that certainly didn't help people posting.

The US 370 forum is very good for the info you are after. Hope you end up buying one.

I love my Roadster but have only added a CBE. 

Cheers,

Rodd

Hi mate,

 

Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope.

Cheers.

    • RAYS 19" RIM REPAIRS
      By Stephen Sweeney · Posted
      Hi guys, Having recently purchased my 2011 370Z in immaculate condition, except gutter rash on 2 wheels, I researched a business to repair same online. Should you be in the Newcastle area I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rim Repair Newcastle. The business operator Lee is originally from Texas USA, and has been doing this work for 20 years in total, and his professionalism and quality of work bears this out. I was more than impressed by his work, completing the repairs with tyres on rims, masking everything meticulously before the painting process, completing same with a clear over the top.

    • Intelligent Key System steering wheel lock failure

      I had same today. I had it happen once before and found the hammer hit on the metal box got me going... I figured that was the last of it. I was not aware of the fuse pull once you get started. It happened again today and RAA towed to Main North Nissan. I now know about the fuse pull but it's too late. Quoted $2300 to fix. If Nissan won't cover it, I will pull it out and try and fix myself...
