    Great angle to show the design elements. Even the grill which some don't like. :)

    That is very true. Whilst the price was higher then some expected, bang for buck is pretty damn good. Plus if you put the extra $20k in the Z it would be a seriously fast / well handling / unique good looking car...

    This gave me a big chuckle, as you would know. :D

    I know that. So you would also know that any car that Mercedes puts and S in, apart from the actual S class is considered special, or as it stands for Sport. e.g. GLS is considered the S of GL's etc. Whilst the SL was the official S coupe, the SLC and SLK were always a cut above when fitted...

    Don’t believe all the hype. Have owned a number of S Mercs and they run like well oiled sewing machines. The attention to engineering excellence is just next level. There are a few common issues, one way bearing in alternator pulley as an example, but apart from some issues with the valves on...

    Subaru is awesome... I received this email today. With full contact details from the sender.. :) Good afternoon Morgan, I am happy to announce that Japan has supplied me an IVN (Internal Vin Number) meaning your Subaru BRZ 10thAnniversary is on track for production next month, December. Once...

    100% same reason for me. Plus out of the box I imagine the Dark Horse isn't going to need any mods, as exhaust is awesome and 500+HP should be enough. :D

    Given you’re getting a manual, I can see a different car in your immediate future. TBH, first of any model typically can come with flaws, and I usually avoid them. Emotion was overriding the head, plus wasn’t sure they would build a Nismo variant initially. Someone is gambling that existing...

    Unless you're West Aussie and had one allocated I imagine the world is about to cave in. :)

    Ha ha, you beat me to it. I am not going to take delivery of the Z coupe either, so will probably sell the plates. The Mustang turns up mid next year, so seems crazy to get the Z in Jan-Mar when I have the 10th anniversary BRZ arriving in Feb. I still love the Z, but I am going to wait...

    I am so impressed with the ergonomics of the Ranger. Everything has been thought through. One example is the location of the inside door handle. It's moved from the front of the door to the middle behind armrest. First time it feels weird, but then you realise it's actually where door handles...

    Nissan reveals NISMO Accessorized Z for 2022 SEMA Show

    I like the options. Nismo version of car should be a cracker. Whilst the price may seem high whenever details are released, it's relatively inexpensive for the likely performance that will be had once everything is tuned. :)

    You're right, Nissan is normally pretty good at their standard models. I just think the Z fell between the gaps of their normal range and the GTR. It should have been handled more like the GTR, especially given limited volumes. I am following the research on the HKS and Edelbrock supercharger...

    Great choice, I ordered one as well about a month ago. Subaru HQ so far have been awesome to deal with, and I am very confident on the delivery schedule. :)

    Yeah. Poor sod, probably thought storing a 370Z Nismo would be a good investment. Maybe in 10 years time, however with a New Z Nismo almost inevitable at some point, it's a bit of a gamble. :)
