  2. pez5 added a post in a topic Thermo fans   

    Nissan USA did a TSB for the thermo fans quite a while ago.  They extended the warranty for cars with certain vin numbers.  The fans were from a batch of faulty build.
    when both my fans went I approached Nissan Australia and they denied the problem .  Proper imbeciles.  $500 each they wanted.  I told them to stick it.
    I do ski trips to North America so the timing was right I picked 2 for US$ 300 and brought them back.
    If you can try http://www.z1motorsports.com/.   Or
    https://conceptzperformance.com/
     
    They both have been used by zclub forum members in the past and have been very reliable. Iv used Z1 a few times also. Do your research, they both should be able source the fans for you.
     
    good luck

    If you go softer in spring, you will need to rasie the ride height "a bit" - maybe a half inch or so, but MCA can guide you.

    Unfortunately I spoke too soon. Looks like on Thursday the google integration for voice recognition and map location suggestions stopped working which really sucks. There is a slightly clunky work around in that you create a contact in iOS and add an address to that and then import that as a favourite into the navdy app and can then navigate on that. Such a shame as the google integration made it superior to anything I’ve ever used to before. Everything else is still working though. Hopefully someone snaps up the I.P. and gets it going again.

    Awesome man, post up how you go. I'm very interested.

    Take them both for a test drive. One will put a smile on your face more than the other.

    ^haha, so true.
     
    I bought a brand new golf R last year & put a Burger motorsports tuning box on it (I had one on a BMW 335i as well, which really woke the car up, but the lack of LSD in that car was hard to take), anyway the golf was quick - especially using launch control (DSG box), thing would spin up all 4 wheels - problem with that car was it was only fun to drive when doing stupid speeds on the street & yeah, not much to look at..
  10. 1313 added a post in a topic HI, noob looking for a 370Z   

    yeah, i was going straight when I floored it - after coming from a tuned brand new golf R I was quite surprised of the pull & speed of the 2009 Z I test drove.
    reason for the question, is that I'm not going to buy that car & was hoping it was normal for all Z's. (who knows what mods that car had, as it was at a car yard).
     
    Well, Ive found a 2017 auto demo with 200kms on it I can get for $45k (no onroads in that price) - dont really want to spend that much, but its in the colour we really want.
    cheers

    Thermo fans
    Hello I am new here so I do not know what I am doing but I need some advice.I have a 2004 350z z33 roadster that I just bought from a friend. When I was bringing the car home through Sydney she started to get a bit warm & it seems the thermo electric fans are seized.I priced replacement & they are very expensive,are there any alternate options like compatible fans from other cars such as Skylines? I am also looking for a roof & drivers electric seat switch.I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

    Yep it’s quite normal depending on how straight you keep the steering wheel too. You can very easy loosen your back end in first if you want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Re Stillen Kit 370
    I have purchased new and arrived here december 2017, i have had it up on blocks for the past few weeks getting to it when i can, i have found the kit very comprehensive, as far as most things have been thought of..
    the instructions that come with it are a little less impressive however, some parts are not even in the diagrams for example.
    i have enjoyed playing with it, and i am a mechanic by trade, even if i dont do that for a crust anymore.
    i would not recommend this kit be done at home unless you are very handy with the tools, and up for a challenge
    so far i have had to modify a lot of bits to try to make them fit properly and have burnt quite a few hours.
    i am almost done, but still have an oiler cooler to fit, and then i will fire it up...
    the last point is the tune at autotech hopefully next week and then i will gladly let you know if it was all worth it.
    cost around 9 for the kit plus 1 for the tune, so 10ish hopefully finished..
    mine has 40 ks on it now and i like to take it to the track, but found that i was wanting more squirt from it, so this made the most sense to me, the supercharger that is..

    Look above for what I’ve said about the coolstream duo. That’s what I’ve got and the volume controls on the steering wheel work just fine with that. But you can’t change or browse music from the steering wheel unfortunately. I do have another solution which I’ve just implemented which I really like. It’s called Navdy. Look it up on youtube. Plenty of vids/reviews on it. I love this thing. It ties everything together, turn by turn navigation with voice prompting/recognition (you tell it where you want to go) with traffic data from google maps, phone/txt/email integration, vehicle data like speed and tachometer etc, full phone music integration (control from steering wheel dial add-on) and all this info on a fighter jet style heads up display. The best one I’ve seen. It’s freakin awesome. Heaps better than Merc, BMW Mini, Mitsubishi HUD attempts. Check it out. There is one possible large down side (and a possible up side) to the Navdy though. The company went into a form of liquidation end of last year. No one is sure why exactly as they had an awesome product and had signed a deal with Renault-NISSAN so they shouldn’t have had money problems. Even saw a rumour that they’d been bought out by Garmin but it’s all here say and conjecture at this stage. So their support has stopped and no one knows what functionality of the Navdy will stop working or break or when, if at all. There’s no more software or map updates for the foreseeable future. So far mine works fine. The upside of this is that loads of people with them have all panicked and are now trying to offload theirs reasonably cheap on eBay. JB HiFi are still selling them for $800AUD but I’ve seen them go on eBay for as little as $200 recently. May even be able to get it for less now. Personally I think even if some of the functionality like the voice recognition etc stops working, the car data through the ODBII port, the music and messaging integration and the funky heads up display which should definitely still keep working would make getting one on the cheap a worthwhile investment. Oh and works with iOS and Android. No windows phone support etc unfortunately. Just a couple of pics of the tachometer and music controls. It’s really difficult to capture the display on the phone but in actual use it’s ludicrously clear and easily readable. The GPS/maps/traffic are really good too. Way better than what we get as stock. Hopefully this has given you a couple of ideas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    And a Z is heaps more fun. Plus the girls turn their heads more at a Z than what is essentially a boring hatchback with go-faster bits in it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. dodgybugga added a post in a topic Remote window down   

    Unfortunately, here in Oz, we got shafted on a lot of stuff. Choice of interiors and trims etc being one example. Another is the remote window down function. I think our cars get slugged with so much import and luxury car tax, NISSAN Australia decided to leave a lot of the little extra things out - even if it didn’t really cost anything to include them to keep costs down as much as possible. As a result, all the easy to remove stuff went. Which sucks... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    yeah, keep saving, Ive seen 09 370'z in the high teens - sure they might have 170,000 kms+  but the car will still have many years of life left in it
  23. 1313 added a post in a topic HI, noob looking for a 370Z   

    also, would a stock auto 370z when floored in 1st manual mode be normal to light up the rears and step out?

    HI, noob looking for a 370Z
    Hi,
    wife wants a auto 370z (MY11+), we test drove a 09 at a dealer on saturday - it had a cat back exhaust as the only mod I think, but sweet jeebus I was impressed by how it went (im no stanger to quick cars, i had a brand new tuned golf mk 7 R last year).
    Hoping to find one here as Ive been looking on gumtree/carsales OZ wide.
    Might even consider a dealer run out new one.
    cheers
