#2 of 549 350z Roadster paint problems
Sep 11, 2003 (5:50 pm)
I just got my silver roadster and was giving it the first waxing. The paint in the rear fender panels looked to be uneven. There also appeared to be a bit of clear tape in a small part of the seam. Thinking it was left over from protective sheeting that the car arrives in, I rubbed it a bit and the paint began to come off!
Anyone out there have a similar issue? Will the dealer do anything about it. I did not get the car from the local dealer?

I replied to your other posting in the "traditional" thread -- but yeah, this needs to be seen by any Nissan dealer, at least to get a file started on the problem in case it develops into something more major than just a seam edge. JW.
#4 of 549 anyone have this problem(rattle in air duct)
Sep 17, 2003 (9:37 am)
I just got a brand new z and I get a whistling or rustling noise in the front right dash air ducts. Apparently they don't know how to fix it and now it's intermittent and they say they can't duplicate it. It happens to me every day and I think it might be when the car is cold and the plastic hasn't expanded yet. Any thoughts would help.
#5 of 549 front dash rattles
Sep 19, 2003 (12:31 am)
My Z has a few rattles in the dash, but the dealer did not say it was ducts. They said everything was tight and it was dash touching windshield, would have to take apart entire dash, but instead they stuffed some kind of packing material into the space between dash and windshield.....it worked. Hope it holds out for the long term. Hate to have to get rid of this car.
#6 of 549 It should make you feel good, actually
Sep 19, 2003 (10:47 am)
as the window-in-touch-with-dash is a feature very carefully copied from Porsche 911s, mandatory for the most part in all, including the $180k GT-3.
See, don't you feel better now? JW

I did not know that we had some Porche inspired stuff in our cars, cool!
buck350zx might not feel any better, but I sure do!
#8 of 549 they can leave out the porsche inspired noise
Sep 22, 2003 (4:45 am)
The could have left that out. It is the most annoying noise you could immagine. haha
#9 of 549 sick sounding radio
Sep 23, 2003 (12:42 pm)
IS ANY OTHER Z LOVERS THINKING THE RADIO IS FAR FROM WORTH LISTENING TO? I KNOW BOSE HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE 2003, 350Z RADIO AS THEY HAVE STATED THIS TO ME, QUESTION IS, WHEN WILL SOMETHING BE DONE ABOUT IT? ANY NEWS OUT THERE?
#10 of 549 After market speakers
Sep 26, 2003 (5:10 pm)
After doing some research, I opted not to buy the BOSE system due to very poor performance. So I have the basic system which okay but not that great, anyone had any luck with putting in some aftermarket speakers? The main problem appears to be lack of mid-range.
