The New Car!!!
« on: 23 February, 2004, 07:01:22 PM »
After about 3 months of waiting my new Primera has finally arrived from Japan. Spent about 1 month going through inspection in Auckland! Anyway, I love it! Its a Black 95 P11 TE in manual. Its got Bilstein Shocks with RSR Springs, Jasma extractors, a DTM Twin Tip exhaust and some nice 17's . It came will all the factory parts including Shocks, Springs, Full Exhaust and Exhaust Manifold. So if anyone wants some standard parts (they have done less that 45,000kms) make me an offer!
In comparison to the P10 T4 its a lot quicker. But it doesnt have the same traction and no LSD :( so that will take a bit of getting used to. Also, I was a bit disappointed with the interior compared to the P10. The seats are not as huggy and they are this blue colour with a funny pattern. Do the 98 Model P11's with the black trim have better seats (More supportive). I might try and get some from the wreckers.

My 98 P11 wagon has the black seats with the blue trim lines through it.

I don't find them as supportive as my old P10.

Not Yet! So if anyone is in the Market for a VR4, let me know.

I can't post pics on this forum, must be a member thing (will be sending away my application). So I have put them on the MSN Group site. They are just the ones from the Auction in Japan...

Anyone got any recommendations on where to get tints done. After having the tints on the VR4 I don't think I can go without them.

Cartint Onehunga. Just out of interest, were you driving along the southern motorway on Sunday heading south from town at around 4ish? I saw a black car infront of me that looked like a p11 with smoked lights but it was about 5 cars infront so wasnt sure.

As Andrew said Cartint in Church Street Onehunga is the best I have had a few cars done there and they are quite reasonable and look good

Sounds like a really nice car. As to tints is a sponsor

check out the sponsors link.
