Hi,

wife wants a auto 370z (MY11+), we test drove a 09 at a dealer on saturday - it had a cat back exhaust as the only mod I think, but sweet jeebus I was impressed by how it went (im no stanger to quick cars, i had a brand new tuned golf mk 7 R last year).

Hoping to find one here as Ive been looking on gumtree/carsales OZ wide.

Might even consider a dealer run out new one.

cheers

Andy

also, would a stock auto 370z when floored in 1st manual mode be normal to light up the rears and step out?

Yep it’s quite normal depending on how straight you keep the steering wheel too. You can very easy loosen your back end in first if you want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

yeah, i was going straight when I floored it - after coming from a tuned brand new golf R I was quite surprised of the pull & speed of the 2009 Z I test drove.

reason for the question, is that I'm not going to buy that car & was hoping it was normal for all Z's. (who knows what mods that car had, as it was at a car yard).

 

Well, Ive found a 2017 auto demo with 200kms on it I can get for $45k (no onroads in that price) - dont really want to spend that much, but its in the colour we really want.

cheers

      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
