1993 Nissan Primera eGT 2.0i 16v petrol from UK and Ireland
A truly brilliant all round driving car
The only things ever replaced on the car were the ball joint behind the front driver's side brake disc and a driver's side drive shaft, this needed to be replaced through ignorance (spinning on a wet surface at just over 90 mph in 2ND GEAR!!!)
Apart from that everything else on the car has been there since I bought the car 2 and a half years ago.
Brillant car, since lowering the suspension 50mm all round the handling and cornering is unbelieveable. The car itself is like a wolf is sheep's clothing, people normally think a Primera nothing racy or fancy, but this car can and has given Subaru Imprezas and an Evo a run for their money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your Primera eGT beat's or gives Impreza's/Evo's a hard time, and then you wake up. A Nissan Primera, against a Impreza, and an Evo, no chance mate, I raced my mates Primera eGT in my 86 Corolla GT Twin Cam 16 and he couldn't get away, don't fancy my chances against an Impreza or an Evo.

A Corolla twin cam keeping up with an eGT yeah right, Surely you couldn't have got over 80 m.p.h. My Astra Sri was faster than a Corolla GTI and my eGT is quicker than that above 80 m.p.h. I am also sure you couldn't keep up with a Primera through corners with a decent driver behind the wheel as the handling of these cars is phenomenol. I have wiped the smile of several Cavalier GSI owners faces with mine. I agree I couldn't see one beating an EVO though, well at least it doesn't look as stupid as one so that is one thing I suppose.

You wanna try driving a Nissan 200SX 1.8Turbo, 0 -60 in 6.5 seconds, blows em all out of the water!

I've got a Subaru Turbo and a Primera eGT. Performance wise, the Primera doesn't stand a chance. Having driven 200sx's too, I would agree that they would stamp all over it. Still handles very well though.

Finally people who appreciate the joys of the eGT. I recently came by one and as I was in search of a new car at the time I thought I would give it a shot. It has given me nothing but joy leaving Lexus IS200's and Mark 3 and 4 Golf
GTI's in my wake.
This car is beautifully understated, but does anyone know where I can get factory made engine mods as I have tried NISMO, but all they seem to do supply Skylines and 200sx's.
