    Recommend for Roadster Soft top
    Just finished using Autoglym Convertible Soft Top Clean & Protect Kit. It contains a Hood Cleaner and Protector spray bottle and a foam applicator it was worth the money. It did such a good job making the dull appearance look fresh again. Just one down fall was that it came from the UK so I couldn't just walk into an Auto store to buy it, they had everything but this one. I placed an order on  Ebay and received the kit in just over one week so I fully recommend this product and the Seller as well.(thepolishingboothltd)

    I finally made it here
    Hey all.
    Well it's been a legit 15 years that I've been waiting to say this, dreaming of it in fact, And now I can.. I just bought a 350z.
    Can honestly say I've had my heart set on one since 2003 but was never in a position to buy, either with finance or family. It's a 2003 manual in silver, mechanically seems quite good (pretty sure I need rear wheel bearings though), cosmetically is pretty tidy, a few blemishes here and there that need a little bit of loving touch which I'm more than happy to do.
    I live in Newcastle but bought the car in Sydney and had to drive it out of there in peak rush hour traffic.. Wasn't that fun driving bumper to bumper with a clutch pedal I'd had 5 minutes with! Hahaha. I know there's a few Newcastle region people here, can anyone recommend a good place for services/repairs if I need any work done.
    Cheers Dave

    Ain't it funny how things turn around.
    After a year or so away from a Z, I am finding that I'm missing a Z in my life once again and am looking for a new ride.
    I bought a Mazda RX-7 FD some months ago and basically it has been on stands since LOL! Talk about stereotypes! Well, it's not because of the engine, I'm upgrading the suspension, and the wait for parts has taken weeks and weeks. I've put it on the market as it's just not something I can live with at the moment (I was retrenched at work, so there goes any ideas of single turbo conversion). Plus, Rotaries have appalling fuel economy. 
    You think the Z is bad? 
    Don't get me wrong, the Rx7 is kinda my dream car. When these engines are on song, man, there isn't anything like it. And when the induction whine whistles from the twin turbos and the engine growls and rumbles and backfires, well, it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. 
    But it's time to let it go and get back into something more, um, sedate. 
    I'll miss the sheer power, but this time around, I am definitely going to consider supercharging it (once I am back at work).

    Hi All,
    The map thing for the Z is a complete joke - Nissan says it will cost around $350 to provide current update.  I am advised that the procedure requires obtaining a unique ID from the head unit to be updated -- this unique code is entered into the Nissan system and the update DVD is generated specifically for that head unit only and will not work in any other head unit.
    Nissan provides FREE upgrades to the 2016 map version for other vehicles in their range (see Nissan Aus website) but does not offer for the z .... WTF?
    Maps are available from Navigation Systems Australia .. (http://www.navigationau.com/nissan.html) but are $450 for the 2019 version, $350 for 2018 etc.  I understand that Nissan partners with them to provide maps --- I suspect that the same unique code issue applies to these maps also.
    Maps are available for Nissan USA owners (for entire USA and Canada) for around $150 (US, I guess)
    1) Nissan does not care to support it's Australian 370Z owners and sees them fair game to be price gouged for map updates
    2) Copying DVD for use in different head units is claimed to be impossible
    3) Australian customers are being forced to pay HIGH prices for map data which is readily and cheaply available to others. eg you can buy a Tom-Tom for a couple of hundred bucks which offers lifetime free map upgrades ... and Nissan provides free upgrades for other vehicles in the range
    Therefore, I have all but given up on a map data update.
    The only way forward in my view is to hear from members in the Zclub who have successfully updated their maps and to find out how it is done given the Nissan system constraints.
    Alternatively, does anybody have ideas about how we could 'lobby' Nissan to provide a fairer and more economically viable map data support to their customers?

    Just bought an 06 ZR... same problem... look like some sort of wrap material..... replacement is $197 here in USA. LOOKS like best bet is to remove and cut a piece of matching wrap to replace it.... then apply and blow dry.
  7. Mud added a post in a topic 2009 - 2010 v20 MAPS   

    How'd you go with getting a map update? I'm chasing one too.
    Plenty of old threads but no one is around to lend a hand

    Welcome Lucifa. Another red Z. I own one although a Roadster. Best colour Zed in my opinion, I searched far and wide for mine and wasn't going to comprise on colour!

    shit if that bloke in china works out id be keen as to give that a go 
  14. Mud added a post in a topic G"day from the riverina   

    Talking to a guy in China that supplies a plug and play android upgrade for touch screen systems.
    It uses factory screen, controls, steering controls and touch screen. Adds google maps, YouTube, mp3, video and reverse camera.
    He has them available for a lot of cars including late Nissan and Infinity. They are listed to work with 2012+ and I showed him pics of the 2009 interface and he was confident it would work also.
    I questioned the 40 pin harness on the 2009 vs 32 pin on the 2010+ (his unit appears to have a 32 pin) and he is talking to his engineer.
    Hopefully they can just wire the correct plugs and we're good to go.
    Price is about $320US
    If that doesn't workout I'll probably go a naviks to add a reverse camera and use the aux for spotify
    Also found a full tablet install dash bezel for around $1000, but is for non Nav cars, so you'd need to convert to non nav AC and add.
