5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi Guys,

I've persisted with my headunit long enough and rewally want to upgrade but would like a decent job or some advice to follow as i know there are a million threads on this but there is confusion regarding the steering wheel buttons etc.

If anyone has done one locally can they tell me what they have or where they got it done please.

Cheers

Jamie

Hey Jamie. Craig here. I own a business that does car audio down in Bunbury and an picking up an 03 350 to use as a demo vehicle. We will be decking the stereo side of things out as well as wrapping the vehicle. The options are really limitless for a replacement head unit. For a touch screen unit they start from around $600 and go up from there. Happy to help you out if you feel like a lovely drive to the south west.

Hi Jamie,

I replaced the head unit on my '06 Z with an alpine unit at Alberts in Bunbury. I just wanted a unit to play radio and MP3. I like the unit and they made it work with the steering wheel controls so I was happy. It could handle a reversing camera as well so I got that to. It ended up costing around $1700 I think but I reckon it was worth it. Oh and bluetooth as well. If you would like any more if let me know.

Or you can DIY it. I reused an Alpine ICS-X7 and bought nothing other than the Nissan-to-ISO harness and then spliced that to the Alpine loom. If you choose to reuse the existing Bose amp, then you need a Bose-to-ISO specific harness. FYI, it is a messy job so don't try it unless you're committed. As advised, a decent touch screen with Bluetooth capabilities will set you back about $650. The trim kit will set you back another $50-$100 inclusive of harness. Give some thought to upgrading the front speakers as they lack high end clarity. You'd only have to spend $100-$200 for a notable improvement. You can trim the OEM speakers and use them as spacers for 6.5" replacements. I bought Pioneer speakers in Japan, but I'd recommend going with Focals or something similar.

Hey Craig, 

Any options for 370z's? I'm in Ellenbrook myself and wouldn't mind the drive down for the sake of a better head unit.

Dan.

      Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap.  This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot.  Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

      My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

      Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?

      It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates. I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so... OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.
