    Vehicle : Nissan 350Z GT


    Engine : 3.5 V6

    Year : 06

    Mileage : 50,000

    Default Finally sold the Vec 1.9

    Can't say I'm sorry to see it go; I never did solve the cold start issue, and she did suck ~£1,500 out of me in 9 months for never ending repairs.
    Chopped it in (ironically at a Vx dealership) for a Fiesta ST. I miss the 6th gear and Cruise but the ST more than makes up for it in fun.
    I'll stick come here though, lot's of really nice people here...that can spell, unlike vvoc lol.

    Yeah. Not as solid and refined as the Vec, which was a joy to cruise in on the motorway, but the ST just never stops accelerating, even at 80 (just testing it )

    I know the feeling, just spent £619 on dmf repair and the clutch place has given me a list of issues which i can't fix without a lot of money (replacing the gearbox for a start), so ive decided to live with it and just maintain it the best i can until it either breaks or i get bored with having too much money in my bank
