1998 Nissan Primera GT 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Why buy an 8 year old basic 100K+ miles BMW when you can pick up a 3 year old GT for about £5000?
Rear brake calipers seized causing discs to corrode.
Replaced general consumables : tyres, brake pads, wipers.
Slight creaking from dashboard.
Probably my favourite car.
Although I'm not a boy racer absolutely love the performance when called upon.
Handling is excellent for the size of car plenty of boot space (hatchback model).
Level of standard equipment is superb : leather sports seats, AC, electric sunroof, trip computer, CD multi changer, alloys only misses cruise control.
Expect to keep the car for another year or two.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well what can I say, the 1998 P11 Primera is without doubt, the most extraordinary car I have had the pleasure to drive. I am lucky enough to have the limited edition model. I have always been a turbo man and find it extremely difficult to drive anything without a turbo. However with a few modifications the Primera GT can be given that straight line punch that it was so in need of, alongside this a slight change to the wheel offset, some weight in the boot and you have a real contender for any challenger. I waited four years to buy this car from the day I saw it's first showing at Brands Hatch in 1998,as it was actually built to celebrate the success Nissan had in the constuctor's championship. The way the colors on the paint changed in the sunlight was just captivating. I really am afraid of the problems I will have in the future in buying a car which will match, what I believe to be the best drivers car in its class. To this day no other high performance car has managed to keep up with this true life tarmac terrorist.
