Eek: on new tires. Ugh. High$$$
Just takes seat time and trusting the car to stick. Race tires on miata make a huge difference.

Get better in the beater then maybe compete in the Z. Ha!

Been a long time since I update this, but I am glad I found it...

I post something in the general about having cash and trying to decide what to do with my Z. Its a great car, that is fun to drive the way it is.

Which has made the decision whether to mod it or leave it stock.

Mods to day
clear bra -- hood/front/left fender/mirrors
seibon carbon rear wing
nismo sway bars
had the rays painted gunmetal

Waiting to arrive
Recaro, Universal, Cross Sportster C seats
I like how they look in the NISMO, felt good so order some, of course no airbags..

In thinking stage on
Fast Intentions
370Z long tube headers
370Z TDX cat back exhaust

Stillin generation III dual intakes

Also need another set of tires, just waiting to wear the current set down to 3/32, then Michelin will prorate them and help me pay for my next set of tires. Going with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport -- I like them and on tire rack they just beat everything
my tire size is
Front 265/35 19 ZR
Rear 305/30 19 ZR

And they always look great with no spacers, lots and lots of comments

so starting

I have doing some reading on autobyte and I have been surprised as to the number of top tens it has been in

10 cheap cool new card for 2016, the Z was 7 out of 10
9 of the best 2 seater sports car the Z was 5 of 9
10 best small sports cars for 2016, the z was 7 out of 10
10 Fastest Sports Cars under 50k, the Z nismo was 7 out of 10 (2015)
10 of the fastest card under 40K, the Z was 7 out of 10 (2015) 0-60 in 5.1 secs
10 Japanese Sports Cars Z was no 1 of 10 (2014)
10 Fast affordable cars Z was 2 of 10 (2015)

Made me feel proud to own a Z, glad I made the jump 4 years ago.

Two exciting things today, so two posts.
I have had problems with the paint on my car, black cherry gets scratchs out of no where. The roof has been pretty beat up, I have called Nissan at times stating my displeasure. But no action.

Well a couple of weeks ago I opened a case and they told me to take it to the dealer again, so I went to there dealer body shop and got an estimate, in talking to the adjuster I had two spots on the roof, where the clear coat had bubble. What she said it was from in inside, not the outside. which was odd.

So I called Nissan, they called the body shop, got a call and they are going to repaint my roof, on them. Made me happy.

The last picture, is what bird crap did to the roof

so after it's painted, need to find protection

once I order there is a bit of a wait, right now, re-thinking the headers, they are long tube headers, if I left where I am at with no emissions and went where there were and had to pass emissions I would have to re-do the headers.

so currently thinking regular headers and get the option to delete out the cats

and on FIs just do it
