Has anyone thought about an advanced driver training course, this Z has a lot of power, and in lots of reviews we see them loosing the rear end even with stability control on, never had an issue with my 370Z but this car brings the power on a lot quicker.

@takemorepills made a good point in another thread…usually dealer training happens around a month before the car goes on sale.
I could have sworn I had read somewhere that Aus dealers had already had a meeting on the car and been trained, but it could be wishful thinking.
Can anyone else remember this, or is it just my brain making things up that I want to be true?

I was initially told my dealer (werribee, Melbourne westside) would have a car for viewing only on 29th July, but then that had since been changed and they will now have a car sometime in August available for test drive.

They also gave me a proper electronic contract with pricing. The total comes to 82k (manual seiran blue) when I asked about things like luxury car tax threshold about to change he said the total will remain the same regardless, which doesn't seem particularly fair. I will be getting the floor mats & full tank of fuel (to be expected when shelling out 82k imo)

How does this compare to others pricing? What prices do you guys have?

Alright... I'm heading down to the dealership now... They MUST know something new.
Go gettem @jezzza
Although, I sent an email direct to Nissan Aus…and this is the response they sent me, which I thinks a bit rich considering it seems they are not keeping dealers in the loop…but hey, pass of the complaints to dealerships regardless.
For context, I asked if there were any updates and those who have deposits down would appreciate a quick email outlining expected timelines because many dealers have differing information and it’s getting very frustrating as a consumer…this is the reply

No one has a proper contract yet because the dealers still are ordering through the back door. It might be an updated contract from your dealer to help them, the cars pricing is in the system but not the ability to order it yet…at least that’s what I and the majority have been told
Pricing is standard as per ACCC rules the dealers must honour advertised pricing on the website.
Mines 83159….but that’s because our road taxes are the most expensive in Aus…I believe WA is the most expensive

As to LCT I thought this would be the case, there is a discussion surrounding this, because if the price is listed and it’s reduced so should the actual car price, but I didn’t think it would be the case, so like you I’ll be haggling for mats and fuel

Dealerships haven't ordered anything! They've sent through reservation requests but are yet to receive any confirmation, allocation numbers or delivery timeframes. I feel that some dealers are splurting out nonsense.

That’s what I meant…putting a reservation ( getting in line) through the back door… no orders because it’s not fully in the system, they have no idea what they are getting and no VINs to generate an order

Bad choice of words on my part

Sorry I didn't mean to direct that at you. I just find it so frustrating that dealerships are advertising "orders" and "preorders" all over the place when they can't place orders and have no idea what they'll get or when they'll receive it.

All good, I knew what you meant and share your frustration.
Lots of mis information out there, trying to keep that carrot dangling

Back from the dealership!

As expected no news to report, however the sales manager did take me through all their correspondence with Nissan regarding the Z. It was interesting but there isn't much to report that Nissan didn't release publicly.

I saw the list of reservations submitted and I do apologise for my misinformation @West Aussie, "ordering through the back door" is a very accurate description of what took place. A boring old spreadsheet was emailed through and later merged with a bigger spreadsheet for all reservations (or preorders) nationally.

I did learn that Nissan dealerships are provided with build and VIN numbers for all models as soon as individual builds hit the production line, it would be an odd exception if the Z is any different. No build details have been received for any Australian Zs yet, uncertain what this means..

Sales manager fully agrees that shipping any media or demonstration vehicles before preorders are fulfilled would be illogical and likely do more harm than good.
