customer feedback

1996 Nissan Stagea RS FOUR V

Just letting you know mate I got the Stagea and have been enjoying it for the past 3 weeks. It is much more than I could ever have hoped for and has far exceeded my expectations. At first the importing process was frighting and along the way I second guessed it quite a bit, but I couldn't be happier and I am looking forward to doing it all over again next year. You have been a huge help and the people you deal with are awesome.

Toyota Crown (S180 series)

The S180 series Crown was released mid 2004 and as always was intended as Toyotas main luxury model. Toyota released a number of variants with different engine configurations and different looking front and rear end treatments.

Of importable models the 3.0L Royal Saloon is the base model, with the 3.0L Athlete the slightly sportier version. These cars feature the 188kW 3GR-FSE direct injected engine and a 6 speed tiptronic transmission. In late 2005 a 3.5L version of the Athlete was introduced as the most powerful sports version with 232kW (315hp) and a 6 speed tiptronic auto, this was the 2GR-FSE engine as found in the Mark X and a few different Lexus models. Finally, the Crown Majesta is the top spec luxury model with a V8 4.3L engine (3UZ-FE with 208kW) and 6 speed transmission, the same engine as found in the Lexus LS430, SC430 and GS430.
