Was that his house contents insurance? Or his car insurance?

Then its a case of rip off radio and rip off insurance. Another example of how large firms, Nissan and AAMI (or equivalent) in this case, but usually the banks, rip off the small individual. Insurers not uncommonly reject claims out of hand on first presentation. Your friend should claim again, and then contact the insurance ombudsman (or whatever it is in that state) if they reject the claim.

Sorry to say this is how insurance comapnies work - before car restoration insurance was availiable I tried to get insurance for the car and its bits - house contents would not cover any car parts ot the car under the house - in the end I had to fully insure the car with car insurance (as if it was being driven around) even though it was not on the road. However if part of the car was seperate from the car - say in the house neither the house or car insurance would cover this bit if something happened to it! As was said - a rip off!!

Nissan must have given the incorrect price on that. There is no way a factory head unit is worth $3000, it is just not possible.

On the plus side when you buy a new patrol save yourself $3000 and tell them you don’t want a radio.

Sorry to here that. My farther inlaw wanted to put one of those in his nissan and was quoted the same price. I recommend he go down to the local 4wd wrecker and he picked up a almost brand new cd/am/fm/sw factory nissan radio for $400.00 practically brand new, he still thinks i'm a legend, i think he was lucky but you never know.

I posted about a month back that Repco wanted about $30-$40 for a non genuine air filter for my ... duh air filter. I went to Nissan to check that I had ordered the right one at Repco and the Genunine part only cost $19.00.

I hate cliche's but you have to shop around.

But be that as it may ... The original post here was about a $3,000.00 radio. I ... IMO think that Nissan or whoever aren't interested in selling car parts, they only do it cause the law says they have to supply them. They are really selling cars and finance.

They have done their figures with recources we only dream of having.

Nissan are not dumb. The have done there figures and they make millions anyway.

The CEO of Nissan would be thinking if he read this post "WHO CARES?" "I have acheived what the board set out for me and that's that" or "I havn't achieved it so I'll resign and take my monster payout. I cant lose. hahahahahahaha"
