Thinking of coming back
Well after selling my 2009 a couple of years ago i'm thinking of coming back into the fold. Went to a dealer recently to see the new 2014 model, interior seems to be a lot nicer and obviously there's been a power hike but I was left a little disappointed by the dealers response to some questions, seems like Nissan have learnt nothing about customer service which was of the main reasons I sold up before.

I asked if they still had an issue with brake discs cracking which was met with the same response they were giving 5 years ago "yes if you track it or drive it too hard" it too hard WTF ?

I see they now give 3 years "free" servicing and the intervals are longer, well they would be wouldn't they if the customer isn't paying.

So I guess what i'm asking is, at 78k with many of the same issues that existed 5 years ago, brakes, soft paint, dealer BS I better off going for a 2011/12 and throwing some money at Litchfield's ? I remember the transformation on my 2009 with just a y pipe and a remap.

The one thing the dealer said that did make me think it could be worth going new was that the 2014's are a lot quieter in terms of road noise ?

There are a few people on here with an MY14, all of whom have commented on the more civilised road manners.

They still suffer with road noise over rough/bad quality roads as they are still on runflats.
In most other ways they are better.

I'd suggest a test drive.
From the comments above, at a different dealer.

Also service interval was extended in 2011.

Litchfield have just taken in a 2012 car that could suit your needs perfectly! ;)

Personally, I am happy with my 2010 car.... especially considering what I paid :)

How soon are you thinking of purchasing I change Cars about every 3-4 Months and will probably be looking at moving this one on middle/end June it's not a 14 Model but is a MY13 on a 14 Plate so does have a lot of the improvements from the earlier Cars. (Normally sell to the trade so won't be asking silly Money)
PM if you would like anymore details
Btw: it's not the one in my profile my New Cars DMG

This is the car to buy...Adam is the most anal person I have come across (Adam that is a compliment BTW!) and his love for his car and attention to detail is incredible...if I was in the market this is the car to buy...

Adams car looks stunning, Ryan G's cars for sale also, both look stunning and really are one offs. Plus 800 BHP +.
