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.

      Hi all, Thanks for the add. I've just purchased my 1st 370Z and absolutely love it. Quality car, quality performance. Looking forward to seeing everyone's Z cars.

      Start off small, go catback exhaust like invidia which is quite popular around here. I personally have a motordyne catback, and for the system itself, it is usually plenty deep and loud! If you do find yourself at one of the next car meets, swing by and have a listen to what exhaust tone you like. Moving forward with headers and test pipes like the US Z community do, they do tend to go over the db limit here in AUS, as well as become deafening whilst driving. It’s not like people dont so it, but it’s not tolerable for most. I would also encourage you to fit the catback yourself, it really isnt that hard and you save some cash installing it yourself! It’s only a couple of 12-14mm nuts and bolts and youre golden. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      HI damo-heato, I know it's been a very, very long time since this post was made but i came across it and was wondering if you still had all the parts for sale and if so how much would you want for them (I know the answer is probably no since it's been so long but might as well try). Cheers!

      Has anyone actually verified that a simple disk copy will work? Has anyone actually done it and made it work properly?
