    Good effort there Gav, our last nissan was pearl black metallic and I remember spending the best part of a day every 6 weeks or so cleaning and waxing the thing. Look awesome when they're done but a right 5h1t magnet and would look grubby again in a day or so.

    Like you say though, it gets you out of the house for a few hours
    19t, greens, 3" inlet, 3" downpipe with race cat, V70R catback, autotech map...

    Sat for 5 years, fresh fuel and a new battery and it fired up on the first turn of the key. Sat running quite happily and got up to temp, fans kicked in etc. It was parked up 5 years ago when a 25 helper spring on one of the coilovers broke, even came with a replacement

    It's great going back to one and having it fire up with issue, my spares 850 did it last year after not being started for a couple of years. First turn of the key.
