    I do love a factory fresh looking series one 2+2 TT auto. I just do. Good work Harts, great looking car. You'll have gathered by now that the under bonnet electrical systems are the biggest worry on the TT Zeds, you seem to be onto that already :)

    Yes mate @MickW, I have been working that out. I am lucky that I handle sidecutters as a trade.

    She still needs a fair bit of TLC to get a good baseline, but the bones are not too bad. Looking forward to the laundry list of gear I am hoping to see this week, courtesy of Rob, and the subsequent service next week.

    Things on the order for replacement in the next 2 weeks are:

    Coils and coil loom plugs, spark plugs, S2 PTU upgrade, fuel pump, fuel filter, K&N standard filter box elements, fluids, radiator fan clutch, radiator fan, potentially the cold idle air regulator and a few house keeping items like bonnet stops and door catches. Plus whatever else the mechanic finds.

    Hopefully after that I can re-focus on continuing to clean her up a little! I do love the standard look, although I'll be popping some wider wheels on later this year to fill the guards. Apart from that, cosmetically she'll be a stocker. I think the standard lines are awesome, low and wide with plenty of iconic views (frontal, headlights, taillights, side profile).

    Mate I was working through your grocery list, compiling suggestions and quality DIY advice until I saw that, then I said Ouch and stopped typing. Catch you tomorrow mate, cheers :)

    Keep your fingers crossed for me, although it has had a pre-purchase inspection before I bought it so I'm hoping for no big surprises!

    You'll be fine harts, no big surprises unless you strap on a couple of 2860s, and, this is what you'll get:D. But seriously the vg30's are one tuff engine, its the peripherals that give problems, just like any other automobile things ware out.

    I don't like being a passenger in a fast car. Especially when I'm the only person in the car:)

    Dropped car off at the mechanic this morning for the run through. Having the viscous fan clutch replaced with a new radiator fan (Thanks @rob260 ) as well as coils, coil looms where necessary, fresh iridium plugs, fuel filter, flush out, additive, oil and filter change and new K&N filter elements (also thanks @rob260 ) and then a full inspection to set the mechanical baseline. Lets see what the list is after that!

    Keeping my fingers and toes crossed, so wish me luck. Will update once I get the car back this arvo. S2 PTU plug and play kit hopefully on the way soon from the forum, hopefully that will nix any remaining electrical issues.

    Little update, I had the fuel smell issue and with all of the various electrical issues I got with the car, plus not having much spare time right now, I hadn't chased it up and handballed it to the mechanic. Mechanic just called and thinks it is injector o-rings, but whilst he was there found damage to the injector loom as well. More loom issues! So after he is finished she goes off to the auto electrician to have the injectors sorted out (rings and ultrasonic), plus they can install my car alarm from Rob.

    A weekend without the Z it is!

    Thanks to @zed280zx I received my S2 PTU plug and play kit today. Expecting black silicone intercooler hoses tomorrow, so I'll take both items down for fitment. Expect to pick up the car Friday sometime from my mechanic with all works completed.

    Just a little excited to see how she runs! Will be able to take it for a blast down south this weekend to blow the cobwebs out.
