  1. jooneth added a post in a topic Should I sell my personalised number plate   

    thanks for sharing your thoughts. Yeah, I find it quite ridiculous that they charge so much for personalised plate. As you said paying $100 or so a year is still expensive but is somewhat affordable hence why i had chosen my plate. 
    I am selling my car too and I was wondering whether you bought brand new or second hand and if latter, what site did you find your car?
    Would posting my car for sale here be any good you think?

    Should I sell my personalised number plate
    Hello,
    I am selling my 370z roadster and I have a personalised plate (37TZZ). I wanted to get feedback from zclubbers whether it would be worth selling the plate separately or don't bother with it? What do you think?

    Hi,
    Did you end up getting Ark DT-S? How is it? I need to decide between DT-S and Gemini but without seeing the real thing, it's hard to decide.
    Are you able to PM me where and how much you paid for it?

    Thanks Pez,

    I talked to Fair Trading yesterday and I am going to lodge an application with the help of fair trading. This is so frustrating. I know they can be good help but I am a little worried the dealer wouldn't give a crap.....
    Thanks for your advice mate!

    My phone holder kinda slips into the CD insert and screws out inside the insert and holds. CD was already in and I must've accidently pressed eject button, so CD was trying to eject but was obstructed by the phone holder and probably got stuck in there. After removing the phone holder and pressing eject button did the trick

    Actually, I figured it out today.... Just FYI guys, when you hear 3 beeps from the audio system, it means your CD is not properly inserted. It happened to me as I use a phone holder that is attached to where the CD is inserted, and while this was hanging I must've pressed Eject button and CD got stuck inside. It will probably never happen to you guys if nothing is obstructing the CD insert. It was a good finding though

    Yeah, I am trying to be as cautious as I can be. That's why I am asking you guys for advices. It's getting very irritated.

    It's the one in Sydney. I want to be extra cautious before disclosing where this dealer is. But if you tell me the name of the dealership you will be going next, I can tell you.

    Yeah, I have already called the Fair Trading. Basically they said exactly what you have just said. The problem is, the dealer promised to get back to me and they still haven't. Maybe I will wait another day and if I don't hear anything, I will give FT another call.

    How would you have take this matter further? Maybe PM me?

    I have already contacted them and they said I have to deal with this matter directly with the dealership. I did also send them the videos and they said they will make sure the DP to respond quickly but to no avail.

    It is common, but when you see it right in front of you on your own car, it's a different story.....

    Need your advice - Bad experience with Nissan dealership
    All Z lovers, I recently had my first full service (10000km) at this particular nissan dealership and I have found some shocking facts in terms of what they do to your beloved Z behind your back. I had installed an in-dash camera (aka blackbox) in my 370Z and when I picked up the car after the service and played the video clip, I found out the service guys are actually not doing what they are supposed to be doing. In summary: - Guy A takes my 370Z out for a spin, drives dangerously for 10 minutes. When he returned to the dealership, he is asked by his colleague whether he had checked the problem with the seat (which I had requested them to look at as it was making squeaky noise) and he simply replies "I don't give a F*** about his squeaky seat, this car is awesome!!" (The service summary did mention that the seat was lubricated, which was a lie) - 10 minutes later, Guy B gets in the car, and one of his mates or colleagues also jumps in the passenger seat, making racial comments about my ethnicity, then drives the car to 7 eleven, where one of them got off, and purchased his personal stuff, then drove back to the dealership. They were driving my car for their personal use (also drove for around 10mins) and I couldn't be more furious about this. No sign of them checking the car what so ever. As you know, Z drinks a lot of fuel, so driving for 20mins non stop had also consumed my petrol too!! The next morning, I called up the service manager and told him all this, and he sounded shocked and wanted the see the clips. I sent him the clips, then after watching it, he told me he will do everything to resolve this matter and told me he will get back to me when the dealer principle is back from his annual leave. I wanted to give them a chance so I waited....waited.... and waited for 2 months. I called them up yesterday and the service manager says "Oh, I thought the issue would have been resolved by now. I spoke to the DP and senior management, and they asked me to step out of this issue and they will deal with it". Obviously, no one has contacted me, and even this service manager did not follow it up and updated me that someone else will contact me which made me even more upset. I have had really bad experience with this dealership, from the time I signed the contract to buy the car, and how the delivery got delayed by 2 months without any notice, etc. I even found scratch to front right fender and cracked reverse camera lens within a week I picked up the car (It was raining the whole week when I picked up the car so I didn't drive at all from the time I picked it up until I found the damage. Also because they took my car out from their garage in the evening when I went to pick it up, and they kind of force me to quickly go through the checklist as they had their finance system back online and the checklist already had ALL TICKS, I couldn't thoroughly check the car). Knowing the quality of the dealers and service team and their ridiculous action behind their customers, now I feel more confident that the damages found earlier were made by them when before picked up the car. The service manager promised me yesterday to follow it up and organise a meeting with myself, DP and senior manager. What I want is for them to fix all the damages, refund the car service fee I already paid, and the factory extended warranty (I currently have dealers extended warranty) because I will never be going back to this dealership ever again. I am thinking of sending the video to currently affair and upload them on facebook and youtube if they don't accept any of my request. What do you guys think I should do?

    13' 370Z makes 3 beeps when ON
    Guys, I have been getting 3 beeps from the centre console (audio) when the car is put ON or ACC. I am sure this never occurred before but after the first car service, I notice this everytime I start the engine. I went to Settings and disabled Beep and that kinda resolved the issue but I don't want to turn the beep off. Do you know what this is?

  20. jooneth added a post in a topic Reverse Camera Lens Crack   

    Thats why i have started this discussion. I want to see how many people see this as vandalism or something else. If it wasnt vandalised, what could have possibly caused this crack??

    Here you go.

  22. jooneth added a post in a topic Reverse Camera Lens Crack   

    Thanks for your replies guys.
    The service manager looked at the camera lense and pointed out that there definitely is a sign of vandalism on the lense itself and hence is not covered under warranty. But I wouldn't think anyone would actually apply enough force to crack it without damaging around the camera area. I really want this to be somehow covered under warranty. Any recommendation on nissan dealer in Syd who would look into this seriously?

    Reverse Camera Lens Crack
    Hi Guys,

    Just received my new MY13 Roadster a month ago and already there are a few problems. A couple of weeks ago when I reversed out of my garage, I realised something foggy about the camera view. I had thought it was just a mark or dirt on the camera so I ignored it. Then after a few days later I got a little annoyed so I walked out and tried to clean the lens but found it to be a crack. There is absolutely no damage around the camera, only the glass lense itself is damaged. Everything works normal - only problem is the crack is covering some part of the rear view.

    I mean how could this have happened? If somebody vandalised it, why would they only damage the lense? I just find it to be a little unusal spot to vandalise. Or could it have been cracked by a stone or some sort? This is quite hard to believe as what would br the probability of a small stone hitting the lense bullseye and only damage the lense?

    Anyway, I took it to the dealer and he says it will cost $920 to replace the whole system. Absurd!!

    Does anyone here with the stock oem reverse camera have had similar experience? I still think the camera that was installed on my car had some defects as such a force that cracked the lense should've had enough force to also damage the internal part of the camera itself but it didn't and hence the lense is defective.

    Any comments, suggestions please?

  24. jooneth added a post in a topic Potentiall 370z roadster buyer   

    Oh ok. Mine is gonna be built new from scratch, not a near new demo. Then i guess i got a pretty good deal considering i got 1% with nissan. Phew thanks for sharing good info.
  25. jooneth added a post in a topic Potentiall 370z roadster buyer   

    The new promotion is only upto 36months finance. I got mine last week and i am so excited but after hearing that the roadster can be purchased at low 70s, i feel i got a little ripped off. I compared with a few different dealers and got down from 80k drive away and thought it was a bargain. Are you all sure about this crazy price? Anyone here actually bought a roadster?? How much did u guys pay drive away??
