Well finally after 6 months, I have re-installed my door panels with the carbon fiber inserts. I can now use my doors as normal..

Yes, there were several production delays in getting them completed (jan) and I finally had time today to get them installed.

It was well worth the wait..

Took the Z into my local performance shop for some new brake fluid for track days and a copy of other little items.

Well the brakes feel great, the shifter had a little problem and they fix that...

The car is now ready for track days

What did you do with your original headlights once you bought the nismo's? I'd like to get the Nismo's but am wondering if there's any shops that I could sell the originals too to offset the cost a bit.

That is a good question, I am going to post here, once I can figure out how to ship them.. And there lies the problem shipping can get expensive..

Also depends how much you ask for them and what shape they are in..
complete / have any web markings / etc...

Nissan Dealership experience with happy ending....
Ok I have a Nissan Gold Maintenance plan, this takes care of oil changes / transmission oil changes / belts / wiper blades / hoses, so it takes care of all maintenance So it has been great.
well everything has limits I had 3 transmission oil change / 3 drive belts changes.
The dealership said I had none left, they gave me the dates and I went home and research my records. So I paid for the work, since it was time for it anyhow. Well the dealership I use to use, had charge me for work never done.

Now the good news, talked to Nissan, only took three calls last one was with a supervisor. Sent them the paperwork, and they said, ok, you should have not have paid for it, we'll send you a refund...

Just a little note,
I decided to sell my 2015 Genesis Coupe and make the Z my DD.
reasons
1) my motto you bought to drive it, wasn't following it
2) There are other means to take trips rental cars / uber / etc...
3) allows me if I get the option of buying another toy..

It just made sense, thou I have to buy some wheels/tires for winter

I went to Carmax and sold it there, got what I wanted, now do not have the hassle of trying to sell on my own...

that was long to get to this point I saw this for sale
RS 34K.jpg

made me laugh, only 34K, with I think 14K mileage
