joker97: Does it have 4WD lock/some sort of control or is it RWD


This one is just RWD. They do come in a 4wd variant as well but they are rare enough I couldn't hold out any longer. (I had to import this one myself to get the condition and specs I wanted)

 

It's not an offroad car by any stretch of the imagination - it's actually bad on any surface but seal... Even metal roads are dicey. The VDC is SUPER aggressive and offputting... If you turn that off it's pretty heavy and with so much power that it's incredibly tail happy on loose surfaces...

Talkiet:
joker97: what's the fuel consumption of the Nissan (and what grade of petrol)?


It drinks 95 and I get about 8.25 km/l (23.3mpg) in a combination of around town and semi rural driving. Pure open road is better - up to about 27mpg.

It's the 3.7l V6 with 330ish BHP. Amazing engine, really refined and lovely car to drive.

Cheers - N


My Discovery has 300 bhp but sadly weighs 2.5 metric tons and was designed on the 'one brick or two' principle of aerodynamics so it gets 10-15 l/100km.

This pic is the same vehicle on the G4 Challenge in Laos (it was a media vehicle not a challenge participant's vehicle although the vehicles are the same)

Yes - I own the car I always wanted.  Sure an R8 would be nice, but I am happy with my Golf (and it drives better than an Audi of course! lol!)


That moment when a Golf is a peasant spec audi.

Heh - I have 2 sets of RNRs now - one with a full set of centre caps - the other with a knockoff Chinese set of caps (that don't look similar but don't look tasteless)

I really don't need a new set, but out of interest - how much were they? (were they for sale?)

Cheers - N
