And that's why the car has been on "borrowed" wheels and tires for the last few weeks. Although I have to admit, those NISMO LMGT4s look VERY nice on the car...
|So I wonder what suspension the car was on while the Ohlins were being serviced...|
So the coilovers came back quickly, in about a week... what took time were the TE37 wheels that were being refinished, fixing up some minor curb rash and the usual scrapes that come when you actually drive your car.
|Damn. Gorgeous! And yes, a glass coating has been applied - both outside AND inside...|
So a few internet searches later I stumbled on this - a TPMS where the display is an app you download to your smart phone (either iPhone or Android). I've actually already used an aftermarket one on my Lexus, but this displayed its output on a small screen that had to be installed in a blank switch location.
Of course, I have no idea if these work yet. Of course once I test them out, I will post the results! Fingers crossed...
Back to the wheels and tires... I was surprised when Ochiai-san sent me the following photo. I had always thought that Nismo Omori Factory had tire changing equipment on premises, but for whatever reason they outsource to this guy who arrives with all of his equipment on a truck!
|Look closely and you can see my name on the tire...|
|Yep, blackened wheel weights so they don't stand out.|
But guess what - new stock still exists for this part! So a new pristine one on the way! Cannot wait to get back into a car with an "OEM" look dash!
So what next? There is one more item I asked them to take care of but I haven't received any photos or messages on that yet. I'm also curious about whether we can get an alarm shop out to Nismo to help remove that crap alarm. I'll keep you all posted of course...
