Question Kick Plate Help

Hey everyone I need some help. I have a 2003 350z track trim with the aluminum kick plates / door sills. The aluminum plates were falling off when I bought the car so I am looking to replace them. I have attempted to purchase the part from a few suppliers only to find out the part has been discontinued. The part number is 999M1-ZP003. Anyone know where I can get them? Any aftermarket alternatives? I need the plates for both driver and passenger side. Any advice is appreciated! I know its just a panel but it is driving me nuts

Edit: The aluminum kick plates are no longer in stock; many websites have them posted for sale, but after emailing numerous websites, I have found that they are no longer supplied. I was able to get a used set from a member on this forum. If anyone else is looking for the aluminum kick plates, used is your best option. Alternatively, some after market companies make some similar kick plates you can buy or you can also get the oem black kick plates. Thanks everyone for your help.

I always preferred the black ones. If you buy me a new set of those, you can have my aluminum ones, which are in great shape ('08). I can post pics, if you're interested.

EDIT: A buddy of mine has a nice set of used black ones I can have for $70. If you want to send me that, plus the shipping for my aluminum ones, you're welcome to them. Send me a PM.

Will the black ones directly replace the aluminum ones? If so where might I be able to purchase those? I think id be happy with black, I just want something there.

Gotta be honest... had no clue what the h*** "kick plates" were.

Add 20whp by putting on NISMO "kick plates"!!

Saw those but 200 dollars is a lot for a part that doesn't enhance your Z. Saw somewhere else ones that light up would love to see a dino with those badboys. I didnt know what "kick plates" were either but i may have accidentally stumbled upon the ultimate upgrade. Tell your friends! So what kick plates came standard on the nismo then?

The black ones are totally interchangeable with the aluminum ones. Just depends on which you prefer. It seems that Nissan installed either, somewhat randomly, at least on the later cars. I've seen '07/'08 Enthusiast and Touring with the black, but my car is a Base and it came with the silver. On the older cars, one of the distinguishing features of the Track version was the aluminum kick plates. The Nismo seemed to all have the aluminum.

The black ones are available from Nissan for $110 + shipping:

As I said, if you want my aluminum ones, figure ~$85 shipped, and they're in near-mint condition. I'd be happy to send you some pics. I just prefer the black, but not enough to pay the $110 + shipping.

Damm good question.... I forget. Searched through my pic archive and came up with ONE pic that showed it, and I can't even read it! Hahahahaha!

Know it wasn't one of the aftermarket ones though with the "NISMO" in 2" high letters!

And with about a thousand pics of my Z34, not ONE showed it...


Shows how much I paid attention to it other than when cleaning the sills. Laff....

Beautiful car! as far as I can tell they appear to be the same as my raggedy aluminum ones. Maybe someone else with a nismo will chime in.

Sending pics via PM - no need to waste forum bandwidth.

- Check Slidegood.com

- Also, call around to your local salvage yards.

lol I don't know what it is, but the 370Z reminds me of a pisse* off koi.......I think it's the "barbels". Yeah, that's it.

-I'd still take one though.

Hahahaha! And now that explains to the world why I've made references to my 34 as "the carp car".

But as always, gotta defend it, even to the majority Z33 crowd here.... my Z34N is a much more capable car than either of my 33s - except maybe in the looks department - owing to its much stiffer, lighter construction and better/higher P:W ratio.

Lol Yes it does! And I'll defend it by saying that it's not a ''bottom feeder''!

..Coming from a person that's never been in one!

Mods - feel free to close this thread. I just got my black kick panels for my '08, and the aluminum ones are on the way to Ryan for his '03.
