  1. Hi, In the old classifieds i used to be able to make a payment via paypal to make my ad appear on the home page. Is the functionality still available? If so, how can i do this now? Thanks.
  2. I'd bet your mates S15 has painted chassis rails. (Like majority of their other cars). Oh oh.
  3. Thanks bass_rulz. Is it weird to have 215's on the front and 225's on the back for standard rims? Are there any benefits? Or downfalls?
  4. Thanks for the replies guys. Not sure if I would get scrubbing in the front on full lock if I placed 225 tyres on the front aswell? Anyone know? Cheers.
  5. Hi everyone, I need to buy some replacement tyres for my AUS delivered 200sx. I still have the standard rims on it. I dont have a tyre placard in my door (will fix this shortly!) so cant confirm the tyre sizes. On the car at the moment I have - Rear - 225 50 R16 Front - 215 55 ZR16 These tyres were on the car when I bought it. I've done some research on google and apparently the car is meant to have 205/55 R16 on standard rims. Can anyone please confirm the tyre size (on the placard) that the car is meant to have? Also, can anyone please advise what tyre size is best suitable? I used to have 205's on my R33. I like the look of the thicker tyres which I currently have on my S15. Thanks heaps in advance for your help. Cheers.
  6. Hi every1, my boyfriend recently bought a 34 gtt as his daily. He noticed that under any load, 5th gear is starting to get resistance while trying to put it in. It is okay when driving around town, but when on freeway its obvious. Doesnt happen when shifting down, only up in to 5th. Had a similar issue with my 350z and had to get the box rebuilt and a new synchro put in to fix it (cost me $1500). But my 350z would crunch hard, this doesnt. There is a slight noise but still slots in pretty easily. Im assuming the synchro for 5th is on the way out, any1 have any suggestions where is the best place to take it and a idea on cost? He is located in Rouse Hill in Sydney. Still deciding whether to fix it or just try and live with it until it completely breaks. Thanx in advance.
  7. Fixed. For future reference - my car had the standard motor in it, motor was replaced and issue is now fixed.
  8. Hello, thanks for the tip! Not sure if standard or aftermarket motors, it has an aftermarket alarm installed though (does that mean it has aftermarket motors too?).
  9. mileage in a 350gt

    I used to get just over 500 to the tank with my V35 coupe and the same with my 350z. They both have the same engine. Always depends how you drive it though, and if your doing round town or highway trips.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion lol, but im after bit more of a direct fix!
  11. Dry OEM finish. Until now, I thought I created that technique lol, love it!
  12. Hi Everyone, My drivers side door lock actuator has recently started intermittently sticking. It also causes the passenger side door lock to remain closed. As a work around, when it happens I have been opening the door manually with the key. I've read that normally when this happens it is just an alignment issue. Is there a DIY or does anyone have instructions / pics as to what has to be aligned? If I had some sort of direction or instructions I would be pretty confident doing it myself. Thanks in advance.
  13. running rich, poor idle.

    How about your throttle body? Clean that with throttle / carby cleaner aswell. Did you pull the battery lately? Sometimes if its left disconnected for long enough the ECU will reset. They have a self learn for the throttle open position. (And over time - if throttle body is dirty they dont open all the way and the ECU self learns to correct itself to suit the wear and tear, but when ECU is reset - it doesnt cope). May sound stoopid but just thinking as it could be why you get the idle hunt - 400 - 800rpm.
