    Hi Tony, just saw your post, although it is over 6 months old now. Did you end up getting your roof sorted? If so whereabouts. I own a Roadster, live in Newcastle and am having an issue with the deck lid hitting the roof 5th bow.Still opens and closes fine for now. It appears to be a very common problem as I have following the ongoing US 370z forum on this matter. There is actually a Nissan service bulletin out for this plus others for roof issues.

    Hi There, with regards to event meeting etc you may want to also link up with a smaller group from Sydney. This community here appears more for general discussion etc, which is great, a lot a good info in theses forums. Some events do run via the facebook page but i don’t think one has run in NSW for many years.
    I just joined the 'Official Sydney Fairlady Z owners’ club, which seem to be mainly 350/370z owners. They are very active with events/drives etc, going to my first one this Sat 12 Jan called ZFEST 2019, a bit of a show & shine-all for fun and lunch, already 23 going so should be great-check out their Facebook page.
    Cheers,
    Rodd

    I am in a similar position, not planning on doing too many mods but have definitely decided on a exhaust upgrade. Will be picking up a new  Invidia Gemini CBE down on the central coast shortly-can't wait to hear some decent notes coming out of my Zed😊

    Welcome Dave and congrats on your purchase. I only purchased my 370 roadster a little while ago and couldn't be happier! I am also in Newcastle so I will keep an eye out for you. I actually think I passed a silver 350 this morning as I was heading to the airport-wasn't you by chance? I don't see too many around Newcastle but there are defiantly a few 350/370's out there. Hopefully there will a organised run next year and us Novo's can link up. 
    I have been going to Di Nardos (John and Don) mechanics in Brunker Rd Adamstown for about 15 years. It may not look like the most modern place however I can guarantee you they do a great, honest job and I generally always prefer them over dealerships-ask for John, he knows me well. Adamstown car doctors are a larger joint and also have a very good name and someone just told me one of their mechanics has a white Zed!

    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!

    Welcome and well done, car looks excellent. About 2 months ago I did a similar thing although I flew to QLD and drove back to NSW, with my son. Fantastic trip. Mine is a 370Z Roadster, was also my first drive and like you, very impressed! photo on day of pick-up.

  7. #1ZED added a post in a topic Should I sell my personalised number plate   

    Hi, I bought my car second hand on carsales.com. I think this is a site all car buyers go to if they are in the market for a second hand car, particularly for a more unique car as there are not as many and you may need to travel interstate to get want you want, which is what I did. Advertising here will only reach a smaller pool but it certainly cant hurt. The ZCLUB facebook site appears more active so you could try there as I'm pretty sure if there is a dedicated for sale section.

    Good luck Mud. I have had my Roadster for 2 months now and absolutely love it
  9. #1ZED added a post in a topic Should I sell my personalised number plate   

    Hi jooneth,
    I quite like the idea of personalised plates and yours are pretty cool. I just bough a 370z Roadster and got 001-ZED. Its good when you can use the regular RTA (NSW only) configuration of letters/numbers as its only $100 extra a year but a lot more for non-standard, i think its about  $400 a year which to me on top of rego is not worth it. It used to be a one off fee so the yearly costs puts people of I think.
    Perhaps you can advertise plates here under the for sales section and if you have no luck in a couple of weeks, sell with car with plates.
    Good luck
  10. #1ZED added a post in a topic Hi from Newcastle   

    That's right, keen to do something like that. Still not sure about the HFC's though-some thread comments below:  
    Having had a Stillen CBE on its own and a Stillen + HFCs, I’d say a Stillen with stock cats would be a good option for a roadster”
    -To be honest though the stillen doesn’t need the hfc, especially with the roadster
    -If you dont want constant loud humming or a loud exhaust in general, then stay away from the hfcs. There is a thread where some guys returned them to stock and couldnt be happier. They said the hfc just made the cabin that much more noisy and annoying.
     
    Did you put the Invidia on after you bought your car? Happy with the improvement compared to stock?
    Cheers,

    Thanks Harry. I have seen a few Zeds getting around town. I might put the call out some time to see if many are interested in going for run somewhere, look as far as central coast, Hunter, possibly northern Syd etc. I was in the Syd Z car club some time ago, with my 260 and its pretty cool having a dozen or more Zeds traveling along in convey. It would not be until next year though as it's all starting to get busy this time of year.
    Cheers,

    Hi Elvis, I know your post was from last year but did you ever settle on a CBE? I just bought a roadster and looking at doing something very similar shortly.

    Hi from Newcastle
    Just bought a 2012 370Z red roadster, via a long road trip from the Whitsundays.  Just love the car the more I drive it. I have always loved Zeds, ever since I was a kid playing soccer and my coach bought a 260Z and took me for drive to game one Sat morning.  I also owned 260Z for about 12 years which I thoroughly restored.  No mods or anything else done etc my new plates. Keen on a new exhaust at some stage. I  Joined the Z club to learn more about the car, share stories etc and hopefully do the odd weekend drive with fellow members. Are there many Newcastle Zed owners out there…..
    Cheers,
    Rodd
