Can you send us a link to the device?
Also interested in where you got the button from (and installed?) @Mud ?
Yeah I have mine set to work with Goole Home also. But it can be finicky to use. You have to get your phone out and sometimes your signal is dancing between mobile and home wifi.

No device. Buy an extra garage remote.

Button was this one I think.

Need to cut and solder new LED to colour match

Installed myself.
  • Remove battery from remote
  • Bust open shell
  • Solder/clamp button down so always powered on
  • Solder wires to +ve and ‐ve remote terminal
  • Wire into button and splice to heated seat or other 12v power under cup holder (very simple 12v circuit wiring)
  • Enjoy

Awesome, thanks mate!
I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron, so will have a crack myself also :)

Actually - did you add a fuse to this? Or just used the one attached to the button you replaced?
(I ordered the physical button just now, and have a spare garage remote - happy days!)

you could probably just add an inline fuse. just gotta remember it's there and alert the next owners if you ever decide to sell the z.

Sad news this morning,
Called my dealer because I didn't get a call as suggested I would, last week.

My dealer is a B1 dealer and still won't be getting any cars this year. Build date Jan 2023, with expected delivery Feb.

I said, "are you sure I'm even getting a Proto with a build date that late?" He said "yes definitely a Proto"

I guess I'll keep saving my money then....

Dealer said things could change, but that is the current status.

when did you put your order in?
October 2021

Dealer said he is sending me an email today with as much info as he has, an SO number but no VIN until the car is on a ship inbound for QLD.

The whole allocation process has been pretty bizarre and this just makes it even more so. If Nissan has been controlling allocations based on first in best dressed it shouldn't matter who or what your dealer is.

How can that be…[email protected] dealer says the rest of the outstanding Protos are on the boat …I can’t see a proto being built Jan 2023, that dosent make sense especially as they are only making 140 for our market. Why would they only do half?
This is all very strange, and makes me very sceptical about getting a coupe this year

Alot of assumptions, but my guess is that Nissan are allocating Protos to dealers, and your dealer got their order in to Nissan late.

I'm still of the view Nissan have to do everything through dealers, so for any 'expectation gap' it's most likely because of this. I feel like dealers are fighting for inventory, just like customers.

However, given people are cancelling proto orders, you never know mate.

Something doesn't add up here, what you've been told contradicts everything else that we've heard so far.

I hope we're not all about to learn that our upcoming Aussie rollout is a big charade and retail cars ain't on their way..

the roll-out drama in this thread is insane. does aus not have a regional director or someone like dan passe that can clear up some of the confusion? at least a person dealerships can go to for accurate information...

There is, we have both a Director of Sales and a few District Sales Managers but they seem to be under a gag order. I genuinely believe that dealerships are in the dark and also playing the guessing game.

My best guess is the Z hasn't 'officially' been released here yet and there'll be some transparency next month.

I agree.

I smell a big steaming load of BS from the dealer. (disclaimer, very happy for you if I'm proven wrong)

Why would Nissan manufacture any other cars for any market unless their halo cars (Protos) were all made.
We've seen US Performance/Sport Trim, Aus, Japanese and demos in various trims. It would make no sense.


Unless they ran out of yellow paint, yellow stitching or bronze wheel paint?
