1996 Primera Egt — Absolutely love it, a bit long in the tooth compared to more recent models, but can still hold it's own. Handling is superb, accleration especially 4k-7200 rpm is awesome. Wouldn't get a better car for the money. Understated and sneered on by most, but don't let that put you off.

Nissan Primera P10 Egt (n Reg) — Great Car for its Time. Its a P10 eGT. It's 12 years old and done 104000 miles but still fun to drive. Performs well, handles great and still has original parts and still reliable. Beginning to age badly now though. Rust showing through, sun roof don't work. etc. 20 mpg.

Built To Last — This car was built to last - mine has now got 160,000 on the clock and it's still going strong. You can't beat the design, comfort, reliability and longevity of these cars. They are just an awesome car to drive in
