    Dealership Collusion???

    Many dealerships are part of a larger corporate conglomerate, and it's usually not clear to the average pleb. That means they have a certain top-down structure, and dealers in the conglomerate can see any negotiations or prices from there other conglomerate members. You may think your...

    Plugin ECU coming from Powertune Australia for the Nissan Z

    And the EPA will be like "NOPE!"

    Still willing to pay markup after all the reviews?

    The difference between an AT Supra and an AT Z isn't that big. Are you comparing 6MT Z to the 8AT Supra? Because, like almost every modern 6MT option, it's significantly slower than the AT option.....

    Nismo trim with VR38dett ?

    From what I've heard of the new 9AT, it's nearly as bad as the 7AT. When WOT, oh yeah it'll rip through gears just fine and give an acceleration advantage, but everywhere else, it's lacking. Slow to respond to paddles, reluctant to downshift, hunting.....yup just like the 7AT.

    Savagegeese pits the 2023 Nissan Z vs Supra

    Rev match is in the ECU software. Get an ECU hacker to add it. Oh wait, they're all getting out of the business because of the EPA......

    Nismo trim with VR38dett ?

    I think there's room for a VR35, however I don't think Nissan has the will or resources to get a VR variation certified.

    Next Gen 2024 Ford Mustang Spied

    I watched the throttle house video comparing the Z to a SS. It's obvious from the video that the side windows are slits. You'd need to check if that would bug you. My main issue is on the Camaro the door body is very, very high, looks like it's nearly to your shoulder. I personally wouldn't...

    Nismo trim with VR38dett ?

    Every track review I've seen of the Z, the VR30 gets unanimous praise. Also, the acceleration is very good, trap speed only -1 mph from the BMW. The chassis is the letdown. It's 20 years old now. I highly doubt Nissan can get the chassis to be truly competitive with modern performance cars...

    Markup: NorCal dealer called this morning said 2 yellow proto manual and auto are in

    How much are they asking? We have cars on lots here too. For between 30-75% markups. Can't believe they'd be sitting there at MSRP

    Ain't no beef with Dan. It's his employer we're disappointed in. Really appreciate Dan's participation up until this point.

    Q&A with Nissan US Director of Corporate Communications, Dan Passe - Submit your questions for discussion!

    Nissan is doing absolutely zero about the out of control dealers. Because Nissan obviously feels it has no control. To be fair, every legacy auto brand is dealing with out of control dealerships. I understand there's legal limitations. But, I have to think Nissan could do something. Like allow...

    Savagegeese pits the 2023 Nissan Z vs Supra

    Ah, that one's a little bit unfair. $10k is probably all the Sport would need, if you wrench on your own car. LSD Brake kit Lightweight wheels (don't go buying the most expensive wheels) Appropriate tires Coilovers Rollbars My main issue with the Sport would be the 8" infotainment. We'll...

    Nissan Z Meme Thread

    Since when is the new Z 2 seconds slower than the BMW? Must be 6MT vs. 8AT..... which will affect the BMW when it's equipped with the stick too.... Still that Z looks terrible....

    Savagegeese pits the 2023 Nissan Z vs Supra

    I don't think the Akebono brakes are that much better than the base steel brakes. The Sport is beginning to make some sense now..... It only cost me $2500 to have a HLSD installed in my truck..... And most people who are serious about tracking a Z would probably want better brake kit, lighter...

    Hey Dan, could Nissan at least get the dealers to take us to the movies or a dinner before bending us over?
