Well I am shocked, I always thought that little hole was the mic.

Maybe that's the noise cancelling bit?

So stupid that the mic is on the other side, wonder if it makes much difference to sound quality though i.e. does the passenger come across any clearer?

Wonder what side it is on with the LHD models?

I haven't noticed this I always thought it did pause the iPod.

I have noticed that the bluetooth phone quality does seem a bit worse in the My11 than the MY10. I have far more rattles, squeaks and creaks from the interior too. Not what I would expect from a £70k car.

Why not disassemble and switch sides?

Basically somebody said the wire does not stretch, you'd have to butcher another wire and connect them up, I think.

Yep, and cut away quite a bit of plastic inside to run the wiring and allow fitment of the mic. It would all end up a tad Heath Robinson even for me.

It seemed a shed load of hassle for a minor improvement in sound quality so I passed on that one.

Amazing they haven't rectified this by now.
As already said, the JDM cars have the mic in the correct position, so why not UK RHD ones?

Pretty hard to forget when they're installing the steering wheels on the right hand side!

And the panel to position the mic on the correct (right) side does exist, as yours demonstrates.

I can understand this escaping notice for the first production year, but not 2 years later FFS!

Mine now goes in tmw for investigation at Nissan. Have advised that other owners have the same problem and that the likelihood is that we all have LHD mics fitted in error. Nissan will speak to Technical Dept for advice and say that if others have the same problem there will be a fix/replacement. Suggest all those with speaking via their under water mics let their dealerships know there is a problem asap as this should all get ironed out and they can fix everyone's....so get the calls in to them guys.

Thanks for that. Mine should be going in for optimisation early next week so will be sure to mention it.

OK Nissan swapped the mic over to pick up on the RHS. They tell me "We have managed to fix the mic for you. It was on the left hand side but
they do all seem to be (strangely). Managed to move and relocate the microphone to the driver's side and it is a lot clearer and louder so you no longer have to shout for people to hear you".
At least they are able to do the fix and they are now aware all the cars are like this. This was done under warranty-get your cars in guys.

Nice - interesting to see whether all the HPC's have been briefed

Each HPC will refer to Tech Dept who now have mine on record and the fact that Aldershot have confirmed all their MY11s are like implies Tech Dept will know of this too. Anyone who wants to address please feel free to let your HOPC know that Aldershot have just fixed min in consultation with Tech Dept.

The hilarious thing is though that my "GTR" logo on the back is a really crappy example-I told them to replace it-they have to got to go to warranty to clear it- you spend £72k on a car and someone has to be consulted about a badge for God's sake!!!

Brilliant, well done. Mine goes in this Thursday for Optimisation so will ask for fix.
Milonator: could you possibly pm me your reg. number so they can call it up if necessary? Thanks.
