What sort of dashcam needs? lol

My last car, VW CC R-Line, had a dash camera. When a woman broadsided me going 40mph while I was at a complete stop, the camera caught everything. The impact, her car, plate, even the woman herself. Long story short, my lawyer loves me. You better believe that same dashcam is hard wired into my Q50S right now.

HAHAHA!

Sometimes I see things on the road and say, "man, I wish I got that on vid." Now all my road rage I mean adventurous driving experiences can be recorded
:laugh::D
Between you and another discussion, I had to do the same. I mounted and hardwired a db4000.

Hopefully it will be something dumb I never really need. Although the Russian dashcams always catch awesome stuff.

Wow that's a good price for an action cam! What method did you use to mount it? For my gopro, I used a bicycle mount I got for about $6 bucks. I just replaced the bolts and mounted behind the rear view mirror. It's nice and not obstructive.
Of course the easiest way is to use the mount with 3M tape.

Funny.....I bought a mirror mount separately. But.....I didn't look at the packaged accessories enough. It already had all of the necessary pieces for my installation.


It is a bike mount. Then the other accessories have different parts that went together just fine. The mirror mount I bought was nice. I just thought the camera sat a little lower than I wanted. This sits a little higher, but not completely behind the mirror. This camera came with a waterproof case that is just like a GoPro. So, it can take GoPro accessories... but, has to run off the battery. I wanted to mount this with being plugged in.


I tapped into the power going to the mirror..... The black is ground and the gray is the ignition... Middle and right if looking at the plug after unplugging it from the mirror. I had to splice into the wiring. I put in a hardwire to micro USB cable. I rain it up at the plastic junctions box at the headliner. There is a 12V to 5V transformer in the cable. I ran it down the same plastic the mirror cable runs down. It is very clean.


I used the case that comes with the system that allows it to work with tripod type screw. I can also pop that out and take it with me. The camera has a dash cam mode. It turns on and automatically records when it starts. It can keep 3, 5, 10 minutes clips and can record for a set time when the power is cut.


I haven't grabbed the card out to see how it looks. It looks good from the screen.... although I set it to turn off after just a minute or so.

I gave Baby her first bath yesterday. In fact, I washed the Q, The G, and the Frontier. (I'm trying to make it rain!)

Rain over the weekend was terrible here in LA (well good for eco, bad for car)

Had to wash her up, got some new products from the chemical guys.

resurrected from the dead.

30k service done.

Front diff. rear diff. transfer case. Fluids changed.

rotors surfaced, new pads, brake fluid change.

installed hotchkins front and rear anti sway bars.

installed new belt and tensioner AND they had to align the belt. At 17k when belt frayed, they had not aligned.

dealer was unwilling to put 5w30 to not void warranty. I had been running 5w30 since I bought the car.

I will have to do OCI at 3333.33

installed factory splash guards.

Infiniti wouldn't do the front and rear diff, last time I went to the Nissan dealership near me to do it $230, how much did they charge you.

5W30 can void the warranty?? The owner's manual says:

"Genuine 'Nissan Motor Oil 0W-20 SN' is recommended. If the above motor oil is not available, use an equivalent motor oil that matches the above grade and viscosity."

Under Engine Oil and Oil Filter Recommendation:

101818

101819


Under Oil Viscosity:

101820



Then it shows the venerable outside temperature range anticipated before the next oil change:

101821


5W30 is listed here as an option. Infiniti states in the second sentence above that they "recommend the use of an energy conserving oil (0W20) in order to improve fuel economy." They make no statement about using a slightly higher viscosity causing engine damage and indicate in the diagram above that 5W30 is an acceptable alternative in warmer climates.

Tell your dealer to RTFM.

They had a few cases of warranty denied because they had put 5w30.

They ended up footing the bill...at least that is what my service advisor said.

I will change it every 3333 miles.

I have a 7 year unlimited mile warranty.


Maple...
109.99 with fluid each.

so front diff $110.
rear $110.
TC $110.

All these diff fluid changes and no magnet porn? Yeah, I know, you gotta ask the tech to take a pic, but...
101823
101822

Front & rear diff drain plugs when the driveline fluids were changed around 15k miles. Transfer case plug was very clean, iirc.

That's basically what I paid at the Nissan dealership.

I wish I would have had pictures taken but the tech said there wasn't an abnormal amount of metal seen.

If you look carefully in the Owner's Manual, that 'Outside Temp Range' diagram (JVT0428X) is under the 2.0L section. It is not present under the VR30DDTT section.

Now what would it cost at an Infiniti dealership?? LOL!
They wouldn't do it, as they said under normal driving conditions not recommended, I know part 2 says muddy condition every two years, Nissan does recommend changing it, the oil change at Infiniti is $129.00 compared to Nissan, the last time I changed it was $59.00 for 0-20.
