Unfortunately, I only managed to put 4000 km on mine this season. I'm now at about 8100 km. I need to drive it a little more often but I do what I can. It's probably not even completely broken in.....LOL. I will need to drive it more next year. This weekend I began preparations for storage. I filled the tank with Shell Nitro V (no ethanol), changed the oil/filter and put on a fresh coat of wax. The car cover is going on this week and hibernation begins.......

I didn't even get over 2,000 miles....

she sat outside and looked pretty all summer....

ashamed of myself

(part of it was because the stock nismo exhaust is wayyy too quiet.... and i was waiting for my F.I. exhaust to come in the mail.... it has arrived finally... but now she is pretty much sleeping for the winter.... they are going to be salting the roads any day now)

I didn't get too many miles on my Z either. Put just about 3000 miles on my ride. I bought my Z in November of 2010, just before thanksgiving. I now have 33,235 miles on my 7 year old car. Actually my Z is 8 years old. The build date on the drivers door plate states that my Z was built in October of 2009. It was an early 2010.

Unhappy

Drove mine from April to July. Then blew out my arm. It will be next April before it comes out again. Think I only put about 2,000 miles on this year.

Mine has been in the barn for a week with fresh oil and gas, still needs a quick spray wax and cover and I'm done

How could you not drive her more, quiet or not....... I can remember your posts leading up to your car arriving...... You were so excited!
Any way you realize the shame of it

Well we all understand the difficultly of driving and shifting with only one functioning arm. Glad rehab is going well and I know with your new mods & a rebuilt arm, you'll be ready to tear it up in the spring

My '17 has now a bit over 16'000km. She saw a lot of Europe already this year.
Next year will be a bit easier on her, even though now she sounds sweet with her new GReddy exhaust.

For three weeks she has been resting already, washed, filled up and connected to the battery tender. Waiting for a few sunny, dry and warm days.

If the weather cooperates that's great... Enjoy! I'm in until April
