Thank you gents.

@Davy no it's GA-17XX. 

BTW went to A*W today for the service. Wanted to get a full inspection done as well but their response was "Our scanner doesn't support this particular model". And this is a car imported B/N by themselves.

 

thats such a typical A*W reply :D 

congrats on the car btw that's a looker indeed. Good old Nissan styling of the past.

Yeah machan. Didn't expect that from an agent. Their plate is full with Marutis and Altos it seems.

True. really miss the 90s Toyota and Nissan's styling.

Looking at the pictures make me wanna sell mine and buy a P11. To be honest I've had that feeling even since I saw @dilrukds 's P11

Had the same feeling for quite a some time. As a result sold my Sprinter 110 to buy this. For me it was a no brainer as this is the best car in it's price bracket IMO.

Righty right! How do you find the power of the SR motor ?

Power is adequate for my liking.  Test drove 4-5 other Primeras before going for this. All of them were either auto or cvt. Found them quite sluggish tbh even the 2L ones. But the manual felt much better in terms of acceleration.

Haven't done a tuneup yet. Also there are few issues to be sorted. Hope it would do better after a tuneup.

Ok. Get a tuneup done first. What are the other issues if you don't mind me asking ?
BTW how does it compare to your old car :D. I know it's not an apple to apple comparison.  I'm just trying to get a general idea that's all.

I feel like there's a vacuum leak. Need to have it looked at. Other than that basic things to do when you buy a used car.

1. Previous owner has put water in radiator. Need to clean them up and fill coolant.

2. Get suspension checked including engine mounts. 

Sprinter was a great car which has never let me down and economical as well. I have a huge respect for that vehicle. Yes you can't really compare them. But at this moment I see this way ahead of the sprinter in every single way.  Power, comfort, handling, engine note, looks etc. It's a totally different driving experience and cornering is an utter joy. And suddenly I can sense I get more attention driving this which I'm not used to with the 110.

Inferior fuel economy is totally worth it I guess :)

Beg to differ on that area, I get 9.5kmpl in Colombo and around 12 outstation (Ratnapura / Anuradhapura), dont think the Sprinter would have done too much better than that. My old Baleno did 11 in Colombo during its final days with me, but then again you cant compare the smooth and comfortable drive that I get from mine.

 

Pls note the fuel figures put are actuals and not bloated, different drivers will get different figures depending on how they drive so dont hold me responsible.

Agree. Heard it gives better figures with sensible driving. Hope my figures will slightly improve after a tuneup.

No hard feelings guys.. I myself am not bothered about fuel figures. Just wanted to point out some people's mindset.. :)

On a side note, would love to see any update ..

Got rear ended by a Bulto last week. So the car is at PAS atm. Need to replace the rear bumper.

While the car is there I'm thinking about  getting few scratches and dents on the underside looked at. Then will do an undercoating and the long awaited tuneup.

Dang! Sorry to hear that mate. Hope only the bumper is damaged and the spare wheel well is intact..

I thought @dilrukds's P11 looks exactly like this, but I just remembered that his rims are painted black.

Won't happen. She's still with me :wub:

 

And ya this look exactly like mine. Imported by A*W too for SLT.

Just noticed. This had a sunroof but not mine.

That's funny. They were able to do a full inspection on mine 3 years ago.

Yeah I was surprised as well. May be they had too many Kwids & Renaults on their plate on that particular day and didn't want to waste their precious time on this.

And the service adviser advised me to visit them for any repair as they are the people who are specialised in these cars :D  

That was my first and last visit to A*W.

Can't agree with you more. Luckily there are places lilke PAS and independent specialists like Ravi P3r3r3 to the rescue.

Thank you mate. The impact was more towards the left hand side hence no damage to spare wheel well. But the impact was a little heavier than I initially thought. PAS did a fantastic job though. I did my best to find a flaw in the repair work but I couldn't.
