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.

      Try having the clutch fluid replaced first and correctly bled to see if your clutch pedal returns. If not then you’ll probable need a new csc and cmc. Your mechanic would be able to inspect the clutch when fitting a new csc. P.s Nissan will rob you blind if you let them, find a trusted local garage

      reasonable. If correctly diagnosed. At the labour cost to drop the gearbox i would replace it all anyway. Parts required: -Clutch master cylinder -heavy duty concentric slave cylinder -Clutch & flywheel kit -dot 4 fluid 1L Suppliers US: Z1motorsport, concept z, Zspeed, specialty Z. Suppliers Aus: try Xtreme clutch australia im pretty sure they have a heavy duty concentric slave option.  Or if you want to lash out grab the OS giken clutch kit from Otomoto 👌

      Hi all. Female diver here who has limited car knowledge these days, I am really confused about this issue and am looking for your guidance and experience out there please. I have a 2012 370Z manual which has been cherished since new. It has only 32000 kms on it. At 27000 kms I did the 40K service as it had been stored for a couple of months and was 6 years old. I told Nissan at the time that the gears were a little stiff to which they said all was good and the clutch system was inspected as part of the service. It hadn't had any other symptoms but when driving one day the clutch pedal went down half way, I hooked it up with my foot and managed to park safely before it totally failed. I drive normally and city driving has been minimal as I like living regionally, I have driven manual and sports style cars for years and never had this happen before. Nissan state that "Your clutch went because the pressure plate failed and wore out the clutch and put hot spots on the fly wheel". They have quoted:  Solid fly wheel clutch pack $ 1739.05, Labour 7.5 hrs @ $143 p/h,  inc time spent ) $ 1072.50 Total $ 2811.55  Dual mass fly wheel clutch pack  $ 3099.25, Labour 7.5 hrs @ $143 p/h ( inc time spent )  $ 1072.50, Total  $ 4171.75 Is this reasonable? from what I have read the CSC may have caused the issue in the first place though Nissan state there were no leaks. I have received mixed advice about what fly wheel to put back in? Noise, handling, longevity, gear damage etc. I am also loathe to keep spending a fortune on something that will continue to fail. Has anyone else had the same issue - did Nissan come to the party out of warranty due to crap components? Any recommendations as to clutch kit brand? Should I sell it? Do they replace the cylinders? Anything else I should ask or watch out for? I am based in the Adelaide region SA. Should I get someone else to look at it?Thank you so much
