so

A. very happy for you

B, I nevergot a call from dealer asking if I wanted to convert like they were meant to, so I think a big part of that process was missed.

C, I was never buying it anyhow so 0 impact but one more thing nissan screwed up.

Been a bit of a spell between drinks.

Shocking to see people getting back on the merry-go-round for the nismo.

I thought about it, but fuck it. Was an absolute shit-fest 1st spin and I could never, ever justify putting hard-earned down with nissan for a pre-release ever again.

Shit, I'd think twice about doing it with any car marker full-stop if I'm honest.

Different strokes and all that, I guess

Have fun 👍

Fuck this. People will have Nismos before even half the pre orders are fulfilled
Ya a little strange. Even with "build date" speculation, arrival estimation.. meanwhile there's thousands that have no idea.any information about their orders/pre orders. And taking more reservations before fulfilling current backlog? Nissan is really fucking with us across the globe

I'm back on the merry go round.
Spoke to my dealer a few weeks ago when the Nismo dropped, asked him to transfer my 16month deposit over to one when the system allows it, called on Monday stating the info about unfulfilled allocations get first dibs and sent me over a new contract to sign saying no need to get in line with the general public today.

Looks as though it took about and hour for Nissan to close the books on it today 😂.

Now we wait and see

Z Day finally arrived, 2 hour train ride to dealer to pick up the long awaited Z
Love the way it drives, the gears shifts are smooth as and the power is awesome
Well done on holding out and getting the exact spec you wanted. Beautiful colour! And looks like you took it on a nice drive your first day too.

The Nismo is auto only without air-con. This is obviously not my option in QLD🤣.

I’ll be happy with my manual Z and save 20k for PPF/ceramic coating and other parts.
Are you serious…no air con in a car 101k…surely you jest

I do love heated seats in the winter...

Thing is, I reckon this could be the last Nismo Z they make with ICE. And whilst I agree that for the extra coin you could upgrade the performance spec car, it's just not the same.. With a bit of luck there will never be more then 100.. lol.

But most importantly, it looks like the Bat Mobile in black... :D
If you wanted a Batmobile, should have bought my old Peugeot RCZ type R…now that looked like the Batmobile (only nicer) and only 500 world wide…my single biggest regret was selling it
If I knew then what I know now, I never would have. The kicker being even though it would have been 7 years old now …it STILL had more tech than the Z 🤣🤭

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I know the purists don’t care about technology that much, but it’s the principle. A 100k+ car should at least have what a 30k i20 is giving out
I was tempted to call the dealer, but
A…just can’t go through that horrific wait and lack of communication again
B…can’t justify spending 100k for a car just based on its looks ( the power is great, but unless you track it, where are you gonna use it) and
C…if I’m getting a Z I want a manual

It’s a beautiful car, no denying that …stunning. But at this point I think Nissan is starting to take the p*ss for what you get v the cost
My opinion for what it’s worth, which let’s face it…isn’t much 🤣
