Hey!

 

I just got a red 2009 370z a few days ago also!

Hopefully we can share some info.

I'm currently looking at how best to add multimedia and a reverse camera.

Talking to a guy in China that supplies a plug and play android upgrade for touch screen systems.

It uses factory screen, controls, steering controls and touch screen. Adds google maps, YouTube, mp3, video and reverse camera.

He has them available for a lot of cars including late Nissan and Infinity. They are listed to work with 2012+ and I showed him pics of the 2009 interface and he was confident it would work also.
I questioned the 40 pin harness on the 2009 vs 32 pin on the 2010+ (his unit appears to have a 32 pin) and he is talking to his engineer.

Hopefully they can just wire the correct plugs and we're good to go.

Price is about $320US

 

If that doesn't workout I'll probably go a naviks to add a reverse camera and use the aux for spotify

 

Also found a full tablet install dash bezel for around $1000, but is for non Nav cars, so you'd need to convert to non nav AC and add.

Welcome Lucifa. Another red Z. I own one although a Roadster. Best colour Zed in my opinion, I searched far and wide for mine and wasn't going to comprise on colour! 

Cheers,

Rodd

Hi There, with regards to event meeting etc you may want to also link up with a smaller group from Sydney. This community here appears more for general discussion etc, which is great, a lot a good info in theses forums. Some events do run via the facebook page but i don’t think one has run in NSW for many years.

I just joined the 'Official Sydney Fairlady Z owners’ club, which seem to be mainly 350/370z owners. They are very active with events/drives etc, going to my first one this Sat 12 Jan called ZFEST 2019, a bit of a show & shine-all for fun and lunch, already 23 going so should be great-check out their Facebook page.

Cheers,

Rodd

    • help!!! my brake squealing like crazy ?? (new brake pad)
      By Newby101 · Posted
      I've got a similar issue.  I've taken off every wheel and checked the pads to make sure they're still 'drive-able' and theyre all fine. However the brakes squeal something cruel when I'm slowing down. They're fine on the first bit of pressure and when the pedal's almost entirely pressed in but in the mid range of the pedal the brakes squeal so very very loud... Has anyone found any fixes or hints as to what it is?
    • Engine light coming on too frequently
      By Newby101 · Posted
      So this thread didnt go anywhere at all but in case this helps out anyone in the future. The problem can basically be explained as an aftermarket exhaust kit. The sensors didn't like the emissions and intake numbers that they were reading because the exhaust wasn't stock. All I did to it was put a few spacers on the sensors and the light has stayed off since.   Hope this helps

      Hi all, Pleased to say that i have purchased a Grey 2010 370z. Being that it has been my dream car going way back. I cannot be any more satisfied and stoked right now. My first mod, will obviously be getting the windows tints done. After that either wheels or exhaust... How do you guys reckon i should go about it?
