    Ok, Nissan afficionados. What did we get out here with the VQ35DE and coil on plugs with a long boot? Looking for longer boots for R35 coils and the yanks tend to use 2001 Pathfinder coils.

      Would drag both of them home!
      Fine, I'm convinced.

      Best case I flip them, worst case they sit in my yard for another 20 years

          It looks like the rarity comes down to the engine size.

          Is it left or right hand drive?

          Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the end of the world?

            I didn't get close enough to look, judging by the wiper orientation I'm guessing LHD?

              Hmmm .... VQ35DE ... "coil on plugs with long boot" unsure, but I think for VQ35DE only Maxima & 350Z and whatever that fucked-up SUV thing was - Murino? Murano?

              Also Renault Latitude, which from memory is some Samsung-built Nissan-based monstrosity.

              Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                Anyone have a real good panel beater to recommend? Found some rust in the bottom of the pocket (drivers side) of my R32 GTR.

                  my crappy old KMart trolley jack that gets used maybe twice a year seems to have lost most of its oil, if I just fill it with engine oil will I die? Usual caveats apply that I'll obviously be using axle stands when I use it.

                    hydraulic oil at least dude.

                      Auto oil is closer than engine oil if you must.

                        Might just buy a new jack. Don’t have jack oil, hydraulic oil, or auto oil. May as well put what it would cost to get any of those towards a jack that’s not 18 years old.

                          pymble smash repairs in hornsby. Frank is the guy who owns/runs it, he's done 11ty celicas for the toymods guys. does top quality work as well, but as with majority of panel repairers he will probably take his time

                              I forgot the efFluence ... Bad lAtitude was made in Korea too, so I assume also Samsung.

                                For those markets yeah. We got the European one. It was the flagship at the time.
