First kilometers

So today, we make the first kilometers with the 33.
Yes, "we", as my brother-in-law is a mechanic i prefer that he drives for the first kilometers and i stay as passenger and observer.
The good news :
  • The test on the audio system was positive 
  • We finally find a convenient way to place the oil filter.
  • After 200km we don't have any mechanical issues (no water or oil leak at all).
  • Nismo submeter works well (so it means that i have an eletrical issue  or a faulty sensor as the oil temp indicator didn't move at all).
  • The blue led lights for aircon, submeters and speedometer are just as i want (thanks Aki for the idea).
  • The 3M carbon covered front lip looks good (thanks again to Aki for the idea)

The "less good news" (not really bad but still annoying)
  • trouble with oil temp sensor
  • trouble with airbag (light on the speedometer is permanently lightened)
  • Horn didn't work (but the fuse is good)
  • The tyres on stock rims are not so good (but I already ordered some Nokian WR A3 XL to solve this. So i will have stock rims with winter tyres  for winter time and 18" rims for the rest of the year)
Still some work to do but  now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

And to conclude, some pictures (a little crapy sorry).

Merry Christmas to everyone and a happy new year.

@Aki : Thanks for your previous message but it seems that I can't answer it. Hope that i can add more (and better) pictures and news soon.

  1. Looking very good! And happy that I gave you some ideas! You did a much better job with the 3M Carbon on the lip spoiler than I did!

    I hope 2013 is when your car is finished! Looking forward to a happy ending!

    Happy holidays and Happy New Year!
