Gday folks.

Had my roadster for a coupe of months or so now. Have been absorbing your wisdom since then but i came out of hiding and joined earlier this evening after having a bit of success with my bluetooth obd2 and live data on my tablet with the old consult-only port, and thought id share (might be old info I'm not great with forum searching..)

Ive so far replaced the vinyl convertible top, rear rotors, passenger side window motor, done some leather repairs on the seats (and dyed them black) and got the subwoofer amp working again temporarily by jamming up that dodgy relay.

Still on the to-do list include the cam angle sensors (please please please let this work im so over this P0345 bullshit - parts on the way), actually replacing that subwoofer amp relay, replacing the factory head unit (parts on the way), properly cleaning out or replacing those seat motor switches (only work sometimes) and maybe the clutch in the long term (i would like a little more grab when i get a bit violent with my clutch - it seems to slip if i drop it a bit too hard).

I recently bought a second car just for fun (04 suzuki jimny) but it has now become my daily driver (A: because ive grown tired of breaking down and B: because its easier to drive around town and C: im not paranoid about parking it in any of the sketchy places that make up 90% of Mackay) so i can afford to waste a bit of time stuffing around. The local mechanics were very quick to wipe their hands of anything electrical (but are all to happy to replace anything i want replaced for a horrendously exorbitant fee) and the local parts stores have absolutely nothing in stock for this car as it is not a toyota landcruiser, holden commodore or hyundai getz, so it looks like i might be relying on these forums and ebay quite a bit.


Cam :)

      Hey there Z'dsters. So after reading all the comments about rim size and style, im now hesitant to change them. Its a lot of money out laid for something that could go horribly wrong. Firstly im not a lover of my 2012 rims... hence the reason for change. To be honest with you all, im now confused as hell and don't really no which way to turn. I find that im varying from the 19" because of the other styles and makes of rim that i like but are not made in a 19" . This Z'd is my first real nice car that is my baby as all of my vehicles have been high powered motorcycles so the Z'd relm is a learning curve to me. Ozzy tyres has two rims i'm considering, 1. is a 20" x 8.5 gloss black rim called ( pro drag PD1 ) now its a 8.5 inch width, which after researching can accomadate a tyre width from 225mm to 255mm. The 2nd rim im considering is a Vertini drift 19" x 8.5. colour to be decided. So after reading everyone's input i really am confused as to which way i should go and colour really. My Z'd is a 2012 Montery blue, and she is stock as a rock. Her shoe size's are.... Front: 245/40 x 19.    Rear: 275/35x19. They are Achilles tyres and i do not recommend, i find they are hopeless in the wet, crappy handling and helps the car understeer even more, and milage was lame and quite noisy........ Anyway................. So wheel and tyre package is needed for my baby girl...... So in your opinion guyz do you think the 20" rims a waste of money for the Z'ds. And would you consider 17 / 18" deep dish rims and why. would it cause complications being a smaller wheel etc etc. if you guys and gals don't mind.......... Some proper education on this matter would be seriously appreciated. Thanks Z'dsters. Dman.

      Hey fellaz, forgot about this thread.   My install is complete finally! Lets just say this is not a real RHD kit. I am pretty dissapointed in AAM claiming it is RHD.   Don't get me wrong the quality of the kit is excellent, but the amount of modifications/fab work it needed to fit our RHD car was insane! My install bill was huge because of it! Same with the other 2 AAM RHD kits i know of that was installed around Australia and UK.   Save yourself the cash, and buy a RevZone TT kit for 16K installed and tuned. The amount I spent to get the AAM kit fitted is enough to build a forged engine! I kind of lost respect for AAM now for telling us it is a RHD kit. 😠

      Wasn't quite looking for used wheels, to be honest. However, PM me some details please, I might consider. You never know...

      Mine has been replaced by Nissan previously, found a sticker after I bought the car.

      Personally, I would try the "banging on it and yanking the fuse" trick, that way you'll never have issues in the future. Basically just hit roughly where the steering lock unit is, and get it to turn to ACC, then go pull the fuse while it's still unlocked (either On or in ACC).
