  1. Hands Up all the Aussies

    No one noticed in the first entry for Make/Carline/Year it is referred to as Nissan 370Z which is even worse than the Description as Nissan 400Z. If this is meant for imminent release how the hell can the ordering system still not be updated properly yet? As much as it pained me to cancel my...
  2. Does anyone actually want an automatic?

    There have been a few reports of where this has happened and the thieves have had to abandon the car. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9539693/Amateur-thieves-abandon-robbery-making-embarrassing-discovery-neither-drive-manual.html...
  3. Motortrend First Drive 2023 Nissan Z Review

    It is different rating system between the US and Australia. The US use AKI (Anti-knock Index) which usually goes 87, 91 and 93. Here is Australia we use RON (Research Octance Number) which goes 91, 95, 98. 87 AKI = 91 RON 91 AKI = 95 RON 93 AKI = 98 RON
  4. Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    I agree we should have seen some spy shots or something from the docks if they were here. Also if it was to be here before the end of the month which is now only a couple of weeks away, and they are updating contracts then those updated contracts should have VIN details which so far no one has...
  5. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Yeah mate it was a manual so I would get onto your dealer asap and see if you can secure it for yourself!
  6. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Hey guys I have had to come to the extremely hard decision to cancel the order for my Proto. 😭 After 2 days of the dealer trying to get hold of me I finally had time to call them back and find out what they wanted to inform me about. It was to confirm that I had successfully secured a Proto...

    Manual Proto October 2021.
  8. Hands Up all the Aussies

    So my dealer was desperately trying to get hold of me today as I had multiple missed calls from them but I was in the field and didn't have time to take the calls. So going by how hard they tried to get hold off me it possibly might have been to deliver bad news like what Ballast Scorcher...
  9. Hands Up all the Aussies

    That is why I was a bit confused with the call on Saturday as I had already confirmed my order like you said a month or two ago so I thought it was confirming I will actually buy the car. What also doesn't make a huge amount of sense is that my order is for a Proto which is a fixed...
  10. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Update time! As Jezzza suggested the order confirmation was just a reservation confirmation so that they can submit the details to Nissan to start the builds which who knows will actually start. So I obviously confirmed my order as I am not locked into anything until I sign an updated contract.
  11. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Yeah it is a little concerning that dealerships are still refering to it as the "400Z" when it has been known and confirmed to be called just Z for what 6 months now. I will check with the dealer on Monday. If all it is is to just confirm my reservation and I am not locked in and can still my...
  12. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Just had a call from my dealership to confirm my order. I was upfront and told them I am still on the fence and asked how long I have to confirm. I was told that I need to confirm my order by 12pm Monday otherwise I will miss out. Told them I will get back to them on Monday and let them know...

    Normal insurance won't cover you on track. If you go on track you need to find a specialised policy to cover you on track. Normallly these are one off policies which cover you for the day. Also for most tracks you will require a CAMS or equivalent licence to be able to drive on track. You...
  14. Hands Up all the Aussies

    That is such an arbitrary number if true, if it is not 240 like the US and Japan than go with a more common number like 100 or 150 etc having a more random number like 170 without any real significance sort of makes it weird at least to me. Obviously it might potentially be 1 for each dealer to...

    I think you mean Android Auto isn't available without a hack. The Supra was upgraded to come standard with wireless CarPlay late last year.
  16. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Yeah Australia's fuel quality is pretty bad especially to European standards. If buying a euro here especially a performance orientated one most dealers will tell you to only use 98 not 95, not because of the higher octane rating but because our 95 is dirty and our 98 is regulated to a higher...
  17. Hands Up all the Aussies

    This is not correct at all as it is two different rating systems used between our two countries. In Australia we use the Research Octance Number rating (RON) which generally goes 91, 95 and 98 Octane. The US uses Anki-Knock Index rating (AKI) which generally goes 87, 91 93. 87 AKI = 91 RON 91...
  18. Hands Up all the Aussies

    I am not looking to buy a Supra I just feel that given my order for a Proto, the Supra feels like the better buy. If I do end up cancelling my order and say get the regular Z as it is better value for money I am still going to have to wait at least a year to get one anyway and the manual Supra...
  19. Hands Up all the Aussies

    That may be the case for the normal version but unfortunately I have an order for a Proto and to me personally the value proposition starts to slightly skew in favour of the Supra. The Supra will most likely be the better performing car of the 2. It is lighter, most likely has a better...
  20. Personalised Plates

    I have been looking at plates since late last year and when I looked "Z Proto" was already taken here in QLD. "Proto Z" was still available at that time but didn't get it for 2 reasons first was because it was not the right naming order for the car as Z Proto is the correct order and it would...
