    Hands Up all the Aussies

    I was only in the "dealership" 2 weeks back and was the only dude in the tiny little carpark car yard and was unreservedly assured any correspondence would be passed along. 14 damn days isn't that long ago. Surely not long enough to forget... Last correspondence was Jan 23 arrival for me...

    Broke as fuck and here he is getting his old boy to stump up some coin for a second fucking sports car?! Pro tip to the dude; go get a fucking job, pay your own way and stop mooching off the parentals for unnecessary purchases.

    Hmm operating out of a smaller crappier yard with a new premises being built.. yep, sounds about right. Not only is Midland Nissan working out of a carpark with a few dongas, but they are supposedly moving into Carco's shed at the end of the year. Few similarities between the dealerships...

    Had a short layover in Perth so called into visit my "dealership" Midland Nissan only to learn they have migrated from quite a large yard spread out over two blocks to now working out of Carco's carpark with a few shipping containers converted to office spaces and all of about 15 vehicles -...

    Z Proto Spec Limited Edition Folios - Surprise Ownership Documentation Gift

    I'm happy something like this exists 😊 But I totally agree with the other opinions; Nissan should've spruiked this ages ago.

    Well, the new year is almost upon us - and happy new year to you lot by the way. Personally, I've still not had an update from Nissan Oz to hint at further delays to their previously forecast January arrival so yeah, guess I'll be driving a new car in 30 days or so... How are you lot holding up...

    Sorry to hear that mate, but I'm sure you'll enjoy the Supra. Have to let us know how the manual box goes in it

    Feel for you. Theres no denying that you've been a staunch supporter and keen enthusiast for this new Z. Tell your young chap to keep riding the bus while mum waits for her mid-life crisis rig and there won't be any if's, but's, or maybe's about it! 😇

    Man, you just have to admire the optimism of these guys! 10 cars to customers in November - now that sounds like a real number - and yeah, we'll have the unknown number of protos banged out by the end of March and the next 1000 plus orders sorted by mid 23. Put the Eggnog down Nissan, you're...

    Yep, there's absolutely more to the story and it does beg the question as to why even have the charade? Battle this online speculation with transparency and facts. Dispense with this smoke and mirrors bullshit of sending us in bloody circles for answers. I'm sure there's a very good reason for...

    Nice try mate, but yeah, I agree he'd be onto the next headline instead of delving any deeper into this quagmire

    Yeah, agreed, go the Supra. Stretch ya budget to 110k or so and go new. Think they're going for around that price.

    Yep, this is a load of shit. No one believes they'll actually achieve such a target given the current conditions and previous production levels as @loudsx mentioned. Sounds just like more fucking games to me. Not to mention that even my own proto is looking like it's further delayed from...

    "So there is a little bit of a wait required, and they’ve been patient with us…" Wow. Is that what this wait really amounts to in Nissan's eyes? Far out. So let me get this right; since release, call it 6 months now, they've delivered 84 of the exisiting orders and now, the goal is...

    Fair enough. I don't fancy ya chances man, but power to you all the same. It'd surely be something if you ger your car - once you order it - a few short months after myself. But the plug has to get pulled eventually. Or you may even jag a cancelled order yet. Good luck to ya dude 👍 Tell you...

    February - March here we come. March 15 is still my cut-off and shit is looming closer to that date. I did ask what on earth the delay was, and whether is was the tranny, paint or chip components and he had no idea either. More-or-less reckons that Nissan aus are just taking the piss.

    Yep, they're all seeming to be pretty shit. I called near on midday and the sales manager was with a customer and would call me back. That in itself pissed me off since I'm damn sure I've been a "customer" a fraction bloody longer given this saga. But yeah, rest of the day proceeded with...

    Cheers dude. Yeah, I just couldn't shake the niggle of there being something regarding "continuous driving" and the break in period. Anyhow I'll play it by ear. 👍
