    Cheers Prim! I got some new EU plates for Christmas, after taking off the back plate though found some pretty haggard holes from a drunk mechanic of some kind I peeled away the old glue which took some paint with it and cleaned up the holes then put some push rivets in it after rust...

    How did you go about fitting the Subaru seats? I'm looking at some now. The mounting points on the N16 seem pretty flat and level so hopefully it's simple.

    Nice, looks clean! That's a great colour to show off the shape

    Welcome. What engine have you got? Any pics?

    Possibly get an N16 as a 1st car, thoughts?

    Ha you'll catch some flak for saying it's a Japanese car on here from the N15 owners! It was built in conjunction with Renault, and I think shares some parts with the Megané. However, that doesn't matter, both N15 and N16s are great and reliable cars and props for you on wanting one - I tried to...

    My mums 2002 tino SE2 wiper fault

    Hey sorry, I remembered what was the issue on mine now. The reason they fail to turn off is a problem with the park sensor in the motor, happened a lot with Rover 25s I used to have. You want to replace the whole motor, pretty cheap from scrapyards: (not a Nissan one, but they all look very...

    My mums 2002 tino SE2 wiper fault

    I had this on my old N16. Replace the regulator thing underneath the scuttle panel, usually nothing to do with the stalk itself.

    I get a lot of pheasant, deer and dozy pigeons near me. The Rover 25 horns were great at scaring them off but the Nissan originals they don't even react to.

    Hey Rye, Welcome along. I don't think we have many Australian members, though there's an Australian Pulsar forum that also includes N16s. I could possibly ship some over from here, but they would be UK market and expensive.

    So your DRLs are in the fogs? I was liking that idea, similar to the minis: But a full ring instead, not multiple LEDs. On Aliexpress they sell facelift fogs with DRLs installed but they're pretty expensive!. Do I see twin horns in your grill there?

    Oops, yep, that's what I meant to say.

    Hey Ed, what paint did you use on your manifold? I like the finish.

    About £100 all in. He's got the standard B7 2ltr diesel, not sure if it's 140 or 170. He had a lot of crap, plus my mum and the dog in it though so that probably helped me

    I got some DEPO lights, thanks for making me spend money! Here's a comparison from my DSLR with the exact same exposure settings. 35w 5000k H7 HIDs, dip beam only:

    I can't do much being down at uni, 6 hours away from home without a garage or driveway. However, when I got the car, the parcel shelf was broken: This seems to happen much more on facelift cars, I couldn't find a non-broken facelift grey one, so got a pre-facelift very pale one and sprayed...

    Thanks :) Yeah they're off a V/S40, hoping to paint them a gunmetal but also tempted by some sport ones I've found down here in Taunton

    I bought this last September, after having (and still having) my '02 1.5 Twister for about two years. Like a few others, I was looking at a Golf or a Bora TDI, but ridiculous prices for high-mileage, badly maintained low spec ones got me looking back at bigger engine Almeras. I originally wanted...

    N16 Airbag Recall

    Yeah I got this with my '02 and now with my '05. It takes about an hour, they gave me a year of roadside assistance last time! I sent Nissan UK an email to confirm it had been done with my new one a couple of weeks ago, I get an email back saying no recalls are needed (I was hoping to get...

    Sharp brake response

    I have the same model and the brakes are very sharp too. Most modern cars are the same, personally I quite like it. You'll find the clutch pedal gives you a big left thigh too! Oddly enough however, the brakes on my 2005 2.2 are not so much so, possibly down to needing a tune up, or because...
