Hey, from an SX to a Z!!
 
Whats happening guys! My name is Milan Mastracci and I'm from Ontario. I've had a Z for a bit less than a year now and I'm absolutely loving it. I sold my 1998 240SX last year, and got behind the wheel of a 2014 Touring Sport for not too much more. I sold my 240 with 120k km on the odometer and picked up my Z with 28k on the clock. I have to say the Z is a much better car in almost every way, however does feel a lot safer. I'm saying that as a negative as the 240 felt very raw and I occasionally regretting it, but I'm not losing sleep on my decision. The Z is a much faster, quicker, wider, more refined, and much more capable car compared to my SX. Overall, I am happy with my upgrade! :happydance:

I've already done a couple changes to my Z. Its sitting on custom made Fortune Auto coilovers, full manifold-back exhaust, black wrapped roof & rear diffuser, Rays 57FXX wheels, window tint, silicone intake & coolant hoses, and a few smaller things.

I have stockpiled a couple parts that I'm planning on installing on my Z after I take it out of storage; a Mishimoto Thermostatic oil cooler & radiator, Z1 diff cover, SPL control arms, 18" RS05RRs, LED lights everywhere, and headlight parts to blackout and install custom etched lenses.

Some of you may recognize these cars as I have a YouTube channel where I've modded both of these cars, along with my other 2 cars. Here's a link to my channel should you want to check it out!! https://www.youtube.com/user/milanmastracci

I have a playlist dedicated to my Z and it might be quite useful to a bunch of you. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...phUNRofI_Y5wDY

Thanks man!! I'm really looking forward to modding my Z more, but I need to finish the MINI. I'm hoping for it to be done by spring 🤞

Congrats on your new Z, wheels look fire. Now just tint the headlights to match the DRL's and it will be nova.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!! The chrome headlights have been bugging me since I got the car, and I finally acquired everything I need to perform the DIY. In the mean time, I will be working on putting back together and finishing up a Bachelor or Science at a local University. Anyways, here is a picture of my broken, soon-to-be-fixed, big turbo & built JCW Cooper, and the most current picture of it (Dec. 18, 2018).
