    Sadly, time has come for me to find a new owner for my pride & joy. As much as I want to keep her, the practicality side of life has spoken and a two-door car isn't what my young family needs at the moment. All the hardships and struggles I experienced to keep her throbbing with life won't come to an end (and so I believe) coz I know a lonely soul will soon enjoy the fruits. Just on a very wrong timing for me coz this is the BEST condition I've seen of her. This is after I've upgraded to Nismo 555cc's, new spark plugs regapped to 0.8mm, put a known working clutch booster (my utmost gratitude to Jamie for being a generous donor) and replaced the throttle bodies with a smooth operating pair. Damn, she's so powerful and very responsive!

    It pains... but it has to happen. :(

    So here she is...

    Build thread:


    This thread is mainly for members' reference as to what they can expect from the zed being advertised. I'm happy to discuss anything about the car through PM, SMS or phone call. I'll empty my inbox to entertain queries. Will let the car go for $10,800. Will come with stock bonnet as per first 2 photos and stock or another aftermarket rims (depends on what i can get at the time of sale). I'll update accordingly.

    Kindly keep the thread clean for those who are genuinely interested.

    Hey mate

    I feel for you buddy I haven't appreciate my z until now that I want to clean the cob webs and get her into prime position. No more sitting in garages these cars need to be driven.
    Sorry to hear good luck with the sale

    Have had a relative check this car out for me as I was going to buy it, but the sale of my car has so far fallen through.

    I have not seen it IRL, but I have been told that the car is everything that Arvin has said it is in the listing (and probably more to whoever gets the chance to snap this up, I'm sure they'll be ecstatic!).

    GL mate.

    Thanks Theo. Good luck with your beast as well. Contact Graham (East Coast Z) tomorrow and I'm sure he'll sort you out with your problems with the zed. One true & honest gentleman... very approachable & knowledgeable in his field.

    Trent, good luck with your sale man! I'm sure your zed will be sold soon. Looks like a very good buy for anyone on the market...

    PM's / SMS' replied.

    Need the garage for the new baby so just to clarify, yes happy to take deposit but full payment should be made within a month from day of deposit. Inspection is highly recommended to be able to appreciate the zed more. Happy to assist with interstate shipping if need be...

    Can't take seeing my beast just sitting here garaged whilst I drive my new car as a daily now. Just disappointing. :(

    Want my garage cleaned once and for all. Happy to chuck heaps of extra stuff and parts with the sale...

    Hey Arvin,

    What kind of power is it making? Has it been dyno'd/tuned? Might help a bit with the sale :)
  15. pennyarvs

    pennyarvs New Member

    Was on the middle of getting her tuned. Actually, already got her scheduled with Ben at MRC. Had to cancel it. Can't handle the truth about the power she can make. Might make me hold on to her... :(

    I was told I can expect a humble 300kw, probably 330kw max. That's based on the mods.

    I will leave the tuning to the next owner. I don't wanna know. Period. :mad:

    But by the looks of it you don't want to/aren't allowed to hang onto her? Could be a get out of jail free card :p

    pennyarvs New Member

    Hahaha! True that, Jamie... :D

    Already got my new car. No rush selling the blue beast but at the same keen to find THE new home for her. Will just wait for the right person to show up and continue the journey.
