2004 Nissan Elgrand Rider S

Hi Ben,

I meant to let you know sooner that we now have the Elgrand and it is a very nice vehicle. I occasionally look at the auction listings and still haven't seen one I like better.

Both yourself and Richard did an excellent job and were both great to deal with. I keep looking for excuses to go out and drive it. So glad we didn't buy a Kia Carnival or similar.

Thanks again Ben. We hope to deal with you again when purchasing our next vehicle.

All the best.

The J-Spec Mileage Promise

Speedo tampering is rife in the Australian market to the point where more imports than not sold by Australian dealers have had their mileage wound back. See how importing yourself easily avoids this pitfall.

Nissan Fairlady 300ZX (Z32 series)

In 1989 Nissan replaced the Z31 series with the new Z32 shape, these were known as "Fairlady Z" in Japan and "300ZX" in other countries. The Z32 was a huge step forward in performance and technology, indeed it was so good Toyota was forced to push back the development of their upcoming Supra as it was now no longer going to be able to compete. In twin turbo guise the Fairlady Z uses a 3,000cc V6 engine combined with parallel twin turbos complete with twin intercoolers, twin intake banks and twin exhausts. The result is a claimed 280hp (208kW) though in reality higher with great low end torque, non turbo versions had 168kW (222hp). The chassis was far stiffer than previous Z cars and most models were removable glass roof T-top versions.

Driving a Z can be a lot of fun, the chassis is responsive and surprisingly low, making for very minimal body roll, steering is precise and the VG30DETT engine has all the power and torque you could need. And if that wasn't enough, take the roof off on a nice day and the experience is only magnified.

Available in twin turbo and non turbo, and automatic or 5 speed manual, features can include climate control, full power options, power seats, leather interior, Recaro seats, ABS brakes and driver's airbag. HICAS 4 wheel steering is standard on all twin turbo models.

Upon its release, the new 300ZX became an instant hit, winning Motor Trend's "Import Car of the Year" in 1990 as well as "One of the Top Ten Performance Cars". Automobile Magazine honors the 300ZX as its "Design of the Year" and adds it to their "All Stars" list. Road & Track names the 300ZX Turbo "One of the Ten Best Cars in the World", and Car and Driver adds it to their 10 Best for the seven years in which it was in production in America.
