  1. I did mine on jacks, then drove the car for 80,000km (before its untimely demise) without any issues. Can't see any benefit/effect of torquing them on the ground.
  2. Take out the control arms yourself (easy job, 2 bolts each side = 15 minutes per side). Take the arm plus the new bushings to any half decent workshop and they can press in the new ones for bugger all $$$. Reinstall yourself. Profit.

    How can it be done in a V36? I have just bought an ADM G37 with sunroof and my hair occasionally brushes the roof ... would love to lower the seat a tad.

    Sorry, no idea. I would suggest taking it to a place that regularly deals with imports.

    There are a TON of different things you need to decide before buying wheels. The fact that you want to keep them legal is very limiting, as most wheels are wider width and offset than stock, in order to fill out the guards properly. IMHO, aftermarket wheels in offsets similar to the stock V35 wheels will look pretty awful on the car, as they will sit a heap inside the guards. PLEASE don't buy Bob Jane or any other crappy Australian brand wheels on your V35! Here is a great resource with pictures, explaining widths and offsets : http://www.trak-life.com/wheel-offsets-hellaflush-hellafunctional/ Here are some useful FB groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/JDMrimsforsaleAUS/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/jdmwheelsforsaleswap/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/V35OZ/ https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=v35 society australia (official)

    There is no commercially available double din solution for the V36. The one I have seen with pictures floating about the internet is completely custom - and they had to move the climate controls completely (into the roof lining), which seems like a horrible idea. FYI the 'G35' on the box means that the double din kit that you have is for a 'V35' (the V35 is called a G35 in America), not a V36, which, bizarrely, is called a G37 in America. They are completely different.

    I would imagine you have a grommet leak somewhere between your firewall and engine bay, and water is getting into your wiring or ECU. Definitely get it checked out asap by a decent mechanic.

    Pro tip: SAU has a wealth of information on this and every topic to do with Skylines - go do some reading ..... VQ35s have a timing chain, not a belt.

    Every 5,000km, religiously. These are highly tuned engines and need to be treated as such. And decent quality synthetic oil must be used too imho. My V35 has done 200,000km and still runs like a new car.

    V36s are drive by wire ..... pretty sure no analog system is compatible.

    Almost all of them don't work, or work in a very limited way. Our systems are Canbus, not true OBDII, and even many mechanics have trouble getting readers to read our cars There is a certain chipset that you need to have to even have a chance for an OBD reader to speak with our cars, but I am not sure what it is. Maybe others on here have gotten one to work?

    ^^ they certainly do. I had a black 280rwkw R34GTT in black and swore I would never own a black car again ... then found my current V35 in a yard and instantly fell in love with it - in black of course ... and here I am hating keeping the thing clean, but am thinking of upgrading and loving of course a black Q50 or Q60. Hmm decisions, decisions!

    I haven't used that particular kit, but that is not expensive - that is about the going price for a decent drive-by-wire cruise setup. And it includes the oem steering wheel switches, which would be a decent amount of that cost. Synergy have been around for a long time and quite a few people swear by them. They are predominantly a car yard, so I generally don't trust them as far as I could kick them, but for stuff like this they are trustworthy imho.

    Absolutely love it! One of these is next on my shopping list also. I have been toying with the idea of getting a Q50 for a couple of years, but now the Q60 has come out with the 3.0LTT it is the way to go.
  15. Awesome news. Hopefully it is gone for good!
