  1. Collected it from the bodyshop Took it back as the repair to the rear bumper (where it had cracked) hasn't taken very well (looks like filler and paint have sunk in a bit) Thank god I'm not desperate for it...
  2. 6.0 and upwards will be supported for another good year or more to come; 6 has only just been released to some handsets around the world. Google always support the last 2-3 versions of Android very well; but obviously that puts 5.1.1 into a zone of non-support soon enough, but when, we'll not know until it's too late etc! 6.0 and 7.0 are the ones to go for IMO
  3. See here; plenty of chat and info:
  4. Pfft
  5. Vredestein are some of the best IMO Uniroyal Rainsport 3's are very good also; as are Kumho KU39s or Goodyear Eagle F1s - slightly softer compound though, but does make for a better ride Camskill, tyreleader.co.uk usually offer the best prices Prob best to put this into the relevant E60 tech section as well; you'll get better coverage/answers there
  6. What's that funny stick in the middle?!
  7. The FD2 is the only Type R I've not owned (well, bar the current FK2), they're stunning cars IMO and very well built. Dare I say it, they handle better than the FN2 as wel, IMO I was very tempted by one before I decided to do my CRX project, but alas, their values are high and it was an expensive option from the get-go etc Now a mint EK9 would be a great toy, more so set up right and with a Rotrex charge bolted on
  8. All as above really. Stick with OEM or the likes of Febi for the gasket, do the rubber o ring seals and plug gaskets too at the same time. BMWmotormec via eBay sells all you need and at decent prices. OEM via BMW is a bit steep IMO Abro blue for sealer too! Also, check your rocker cover for any cracks, no matter how small, they'll cause issues. Take the cover off, give it a very good clean and then inspect using a decent, bright LED torch. Check all edges and all flat areas, they can hairline crack and they're a sod to spot! If you do find a crack, you can plastic weld and doing it properly, it'll not cause any further issues
  9. Wow... #howtoruinacar101
  10. Wow, you gave up too easy!
  11. No, it's a Nissan engine, may have been in some Renaults through IIRC
  12. 'Just nippin to the shops luv... Think I'll take the M1...' Ok for some Stunning car!
  13. The Z4 is a tiny car inside IMO... Ok, I'm not your average sized person, but I can't even fit into the passenger side of these cars! The V6 though in the 350Z, through a decent stainless system gives off a sound to die for
  14. My 2012 Mac Mini/iTunes etc... Currently it's running through an MF M1DAC into my NAD C320BEE and I'm playing about with the AE109s I've got, but I've some Monitor Audio RX1s on Roxdon isolation pads on the desktop... The AE109s are just a bit of fun, far too powerful for my small office... Puts a great smile on my face though when I hammer out some bassy tracks or something like Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' or SOAD's 'Hypnotise' on full whack
  15. All the info you'll ever need is on here: http://www.350z-uk.com/topic/77426-buyers-guide/ I had one, lasted 6 months until I spun, very slowly, on ice, but hit a very large tree and a concrete post one after each other, car was written off there & then Loved it though and was chalk and cheese after my BB8 Honda Prelude! I wasn't as big then as I am now, but it was a very comfy car and loads of toys out there if you're into mods etc
