I don't think there was anything special or difficult about the parts they got. The exhaust system was the ceramic coated 6-1 manifold and premium system from Motorsport Auto in Orange County. I guess they probably got the other bits there. In the UK - well, you can either order direct from MSA, or do it through Mr F. for convenience.

The recon box - don't know about that one. A quick Google would probably find some contenders though for who they got it from.

Yes Steve as I said earlier it was good and I was pleasantry surprised - well done Wheeler Dealers, one of your better shows.

Well I just watched it and was pleasantly surprised, sometimes these car shows can really get it wrong in my opinion but they did pretty good,

They brought a nice base car, did a few subtle mods and auto to manual conversion, so glad they didn't put any spoilers on it or horrible wheels, or wrap it like the Pacer last week eehh !

Well done and can only do the little 240z good I reckon , I bet that the ones on eBay have a few more watches/ bids today though,

Can only be positive - will the anoraks please remember as Burnsie said - it's only a TV programme and TV is NOT a reflection of reality - ALWAYS made up especially 'live' shows.

What we need now is a major film or series in which the principle character (and why not a girlie) drives an S30....

Yep - seen the ad but I don't mean history which only us anoraks'll really watch in detail - I mean a current series or major film - something like Tom Cruise and nobody mention Vanilla Sky or Top Gun (and not Jim Carey) - maybe Capricorn 1 sold a shedload of 280Zs.....certain recent-ish video games have certainly sold the idea of ZG arches....

Zeds feature as playable options in many games over recent years, something that has had an impact in terms of recognition with the younger generation. Being on TV or in the cinema isn't the be all and end all in the multimedia age...

yup... "replace the tired 2.6"... a bit of model confusion going on there!

Bit surprised they didn't just swap in an L28 as well. But $1,700 for a ZX box? I've got three good spares in my garage - I'm rich!

Gotta be pleased with all the good comments though - it can only help raise the profile of the S30 here too :-)
