Recently I got a 2006 Nissan 350z (Enthusiast trim) with 250,000 miles (mostly highway). The previous owner was quite the stoner, judging by what we found in the various interior compartments during its first detail. After checking around the car, I noticed that the previous owner, let's call him Chad, had installed an aftermarket audio system and subwoofer. Great right? Who doesn't love getting a little extra in their investments? Well, let's just say that Chad was probably high as a kite when he installed this system. The first thing we noticed was that the subwoofer was set to take all frequencies of audio, not just the low ones. In case you didn't know, subwoofers are specifically designed to handle and play the lower sounds in your music. Alright, we said, maybe that was a little dumb but it isn't a huge deal and we can just fix it real quick. Well, as I was finishing up the installation of my first mod (a CAI) we noticed that something looked a little off by the battery. The wiring for the audio system, to be exact. When we took a look at the wires we found a fuse on the negative wire and absolutely nothing on the positive wire. Anyone who has basic electrical knowledge would know just how wrong that is. I was shocked to find out that I had been driving around with such a dangerous fire hazard under my hood. If something had gone wrong with the wiring there would have been absolutely nothing to prevent my car from bursting into flames. I wish I had taken a picture! Of course, we fixed it and all is right now, but man that was something...
DanG91 posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingSo I'm currently looking to get a coupe and so far my top choice so far is buying a Fiat Coupe 2.0 20v Turbo Plus (Limited Edition) for its uniqueness and rarity. I'm also looking into the TT, Celica or MX as my other options. So lets stick with the Fiat Coupe for now (though I'll take other advice/suggestions on-board) I've searched high and low for reviews, of which haven't really helped me at all. So I'm now asking on here for a decent and honest answer to my question. The car is in an immaculate condition (from what I've seen anyways), its got 118000 miles on the clock. Had a new clutch at 106000, new cam belt at 102000 and a new turbo at 86000. I've read that though generally the car is amazing, the coupe can suffer from electrical issues and that repairs are costly due to lack of parts. So any help would be appreciated, again an honest answer, not just a 'Yes, do it' or 'Look, I have one so...' Thanks
