  1. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Qantas just cancelled my flight from Dallas to Sydney for tonight (no explanation provided) and left me stuck here for an extra day and now a 33 hour haul back to Perth on different airlines. Awesome stuff.

    I hadn’t considered the risk that new petrol cars will be banned prior to delivery

    6, 12, or 18 I think the message is the same
  4. Hands Up all the Aussies

    You have done the right thing. The doubt you feel now is nothing compared to the regret you would feel 6 months from now when we are all driving around in our Zs.

    Just the week unfortunately.
  6. Texas members gather here...

    I’m from Perth Western Australia but sitting at the airport about to start the long 3 flight haul to Houston. Hoping to see if I can see a Z in the flesh while there. Transiting Dallas next Friday and can see that Grapevine right near DFW - might need to pop out there.

    Yep. I expect you are correct.
  8. Hands Up all the Aussies

    This is kind of the conversation that my dealer had with me a couple of weeks ago. 29 June to be precise.
  9. Nissan Suspends Orders of Z Coupe and Ariya EV in Japan Citing Parts Shortages and COVID

    I paid my deposit in early may with no real expectation. Dealer has consistently been honest that “there’s lots of speculation out there but in reality we don’t know anything. Could be soon, could be next year just don’t know.” What they have also done is harassed me (in good way) when anything...

    I might get shot down for this suggestion, but years ago I drove a HSV Monaro (in Australia) with a 5.7L V8 and a heavy 6 speed ZF manual transmission. I dealt with the twitchiness in heavy stop start traffic by using second gear rather than first. Car had plenty of power and it just made it...

    Talk about ruining a great idea with practicalities! *edit - this reply was meant for Mud’s comment about relocating the handbrake

    Looks like a job for a 3d printer

    Does “halfway through the Coupe allocation” mean they have dealt half the cars they are getting or that they have cars to deal with half the preorders do you think?
  14. 2023 Nissan Zs Spied on Carrier Trucks - Has Production Begun?

    The Blue one at least looks RHD. The yellows don’t.

    Agreed - I’ve yet to hear of a wireless implementation that works. Everyone I know has connection issues. Certainly in perth it is useless in the CBD and every time you drive near the railway overhead power wires. One of my cars is wireless only and I wish it had wired.

    @West Aussie - perhaps we are the start of the WA Z Club
  17. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Man I’m anxious and I’ve only known the car existed from early May this year - with my order placed within days. This isn’t really a car to me - it’s the motorbike I’ve never been allowed to have.
  18. Hands Up all the Aussies

    I was ok with the wait until I found this forum!!! The only thing I believe full amongst all the speculation is that nothing I say or do will change when I get my car!
  19. Hands Up all the Aussies

    Another West Australian here. A bit late to the game. Had been looking at EVs for months and months waiting for some of the newer models to arrive - then I stumbled across a Z video on YouTube and had my deposit down within days - unfortunately only in early May 2022 though! Perhaps a bit...
