    Oh, I've driven that car! Many times. It's a blast.

    The tires held up really well, and seemed very consistent, much to the chagrin of the driver/owner. Like, I thought they were great all things considered. Just won't set any records with them. Who knows about the wet though, because the chance for that, the owner decided to not try anything dumb on a track he didn't know.

    Current Plans:

    Tyres - 4x MPS4 booked to go on Friday afternoon
    Alignment
    Air con deodorisation
    Local Nissan dealer for the overdue service - I guess oil, filter, plugs and coolant change
    Bodyshop for the dent in the front wing
    Paint detailing

    (maybe future)
    Carbon Lorraine brake pads & high-temp fluid
    New stereo (no aux in)
    A set of rear 8.5J Rays wheels on the front
    Exhaust upgrade when the stock unit rusts through

    Re: Stereo, as we discussed in London, get an Android Auto-capable head unit. It's game-changing!!

    That's the direction I'm looking in, yes. Any particular recommended model?

    I'm not sure myself, but you could probably do worse than follow as Mario suggested?

    The double-DIN Pioneer one I currently have installed in the BRZ is pretty good (XVH-8870BT or something like that) in that it's very usable and responsive. I did briefly entertain the idea of installing the Pioneer single-DIN model with a flip-out screen in the Legacy, but that sweet McIntosh badge is just too hard to give up, even if using the bodged together Aux-In results in a lot of noise, including engine noise!

    I've been meaning to say, the thing to look for when looking for any modern Z is Nismo bodywork.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    ^ I like the way you think.

    You think with a fat wallet.

    It's quite funny actually. I started off thinking, 350Zs are cheap and quite common, should be easy to get one. Then I did some reading, yes I really want a 2007- HR car, so dividing my field by about five. Then I got to looking at colours, and read on Wikipedia about the premium blaze red Type F JDM run-out special edition (100 units made). Hmm, sounds nice. Then I read about the Nismo Type 380RS, with 348bhp... sounds good. I got as far as browsing them on goo-net before I realised that I'd experienced some fairly spectacular mission creep - I was looking for something fairly easy to buy and own, not a rare and expensive special edition JDM import (!)
