Replaced alternator. (Would have been a Quick fix if I had loosened the correct bolt)

General Comments:

I am very impressed with the comfort and reliability of this car.

Even though it could use a bit more power it is over all quite sporty.

Your comments on the Nissan 200sx are spot on! I had the manifold go on me not long after I got my car (not a cheap item to replace.) I feel the performance is good for a standard car (even better if it was not d-tuned though) I was very impressed by the difference in power after I made a couple of mild and cheap mods IE. hks exhaust, b.o.v. (not affecting the power, but it sounds great) and a little boost improvement. It does lack in the cornering department, but once again a little modifying will make a lot of difference. One thing that could be improved upon is the take off power (before the turbo kicks in) but overall the car is great and I am very happy to own one.

Faults:

Nothing wrong with 43,000 miles on the clock.

General Comments:

A very reliable motorway cruiser, manual gearbox is slick but clutch very grabby when cold! Leather seats could do with more lumbar support.

Caution: very tail happy in the wet!, but superb handling on dry roads.

Overall a real drivers car, but do something with the styling Nissan!
