Welcome from a country Victorian !

We have the same car as you. Assuming you have the BN, we have the previous BM version, in red, sedan.

Good fun though. Glad someone else can use a manual box, more enjoyable.

Thank you, oscargamer it's a BN SP25 manual sedan in grey. I'm actually from the yarra Valley so semi-country or country depending from where you come from and your perspective.

You'll have fun out of Melbourne round the roads near you !

We're out SW Vic, near Warrnambool.

Do you plan on using your $tealer$hip after the first free service, or do you have a good local mechanic ?

Remember to use your PC to update maps etc....

Any questions.......fire away

i think i will use the dealer just because i'm looking at getting a company car for work in about 3 years and it will be better selling it with dealer stamp in the book. I'll look around at the other prices but with cap price servicing and a dealer stamp i'll go to the dealer. I did 3 years of my mechanic apprenticeship at a Toyota and Nissan dealer about 7 years ago, $140 an hour and the mechanic saw $20 and as an apprentice i saw $7-14. The first service with an 'hours' labor took about 30 min.
