Pulled the trigger on Z1s Black Friday deals. Got 228k miles, been on tein s techs for 200k? So I got z1 toe arms, z1 traction arms, z1 eccentric toe bolts, z1 front and rear end links, rear wheel bearings. Waiting to install when I pick up a set of true rear Coilovers in the spring. Haven’t picked the set yet, still reviewing.

I also bought the kit from Sylvania but I did not use it as there are a few reviews showing that you get to redo everything after 12-18 months...
Then I wonít tell you that Z1 had the Morimotos on Black Friday for a little over $1100.

Got the EPR front lip and side skirts on. Just the subtle accents I wanted without lowering it.

So over the past weekend I was replacing my Brainiac Tablet setup with a Kenwood DMX958XR, bigaudiofanat was helping me.

We found the battery completely dead (~5V). I had a Optima Yellow top which was about 2 years old. So even that I haven't driven in the past 6 weeks but that won't leave it completely dead. Anyway nothing was left on that I could tell so after about a half hour hooked up to his car we were able to get enough charge to get it to turn over and fire. In the process of the install we noticed that the brake light stuck on, so I am guessing the switch is sticking.

Ran my car for another half hour and completed the switch over, it's a pretty nice head unit and I have replaced the battery because while it's probably fine for a daily driver I've heard AGM batteries lose much of the CCA being so totally discharged and running it only every few weeks isn't enough to keep the charge and turn the engine over.

Why did you go back to a traditional stereo from the Braniac? Bigaudiofanat is a huge help with all the AV stuff, great forum member.


Mine isn't a daily neither and I have a Bosch AGM battery. I put the charger on weekly to top it off and always before turning it over to wake it up. I'd do this with any battery as to not cause undue stress.

Well the immediate reason is when I upgraded my tablet the cover didn't fit correctly anymore and they don't make/sell on that does (the bottom buttons are covered). Going back to the original tablet I cracked the printed backing and just said, enough.

Don't get me wrong, I like the tablet, but it does have limitations, a few of which I managed to get around, others I couldn't. Volume, Phone, and backup camera being the top issues of mine.

Completed maintenance on my Z a few weeks ago.

Oil change using the Nissan 5W-30 Ester oil, Nissan filter and crush washer.

OEM engine air filters.

OEM cabin filter.

OEM right side hood/fender rubber seal.

OEM U shaped shield that goes under the car between the mid pipe and drive shaft.

OEM belt, belt tensioner and all three idler pulleys. There was a birdie in my engine bay.

Also had to lube up my front right brake pads since they were squeeking.

My Z is almost at 100k. I'm the original owner and it's been pretty solid.
