    6 weeks an owner and on 3rd battery

    The volt meter on the dash isn't going to help, the difference between starting fine and lacking enough juice is about 1/2 a degree on the dial!

    Even the most basic battery testers usually also help spot if the alternator is charging correctly. How many times have you started the car per battery? Either something is draining it like an accessory that's plugged I. (or an after market stereo) or the alternator isn't charging the battery. It's quite simple either it's leaking or not being charged! Work out which one and the remedy should be simple

    Pitted Brake disc. Replace or monitor?

    It's just advice, have a look at it yourself and see if you can see the issue then just take a peek every few months. Probably find they happily last a year or more and might not even come up next year.

    banana arms and drop links - what to order

    Personally I swapped both arms as its a driveway diy job so I did it over a weekend as at a time it was a daily car. Means it's all done and good, that's just me though!

    I figured the ball joints would be going as well and bought some Moog ones from Torqen and did it all myself. With the bushes you'll need to get a garage to do it so either pay for them to do everything or take the arms off and take them to the garage to press out/in. Obviously not so good if it's your only car.

    Just to be clear your saying you just want to replace one arm and both drop links? I'd really get both arms swapped, if one's failed the other won't be far behind. The car's going to feel a bit odd with very differently behaving arms not to mention that the process for swapping one is pretty much the same for 2 if your doing it yourself or paying it's more economical to do both at once.
  8. What seats does it have in?

  10. Nifty, I assume that's a rubber block on the gearbox mount to soften the vibrations?
  11. I'll take the gear knob if you can throw me a photo and it still looks decent

    Some MOFO has bumped into me

    Can you snap a pic in daylight from an angle? The photos not really showing the issue very well with a flash.

    Hi, how did I do?

    Welcome aboard! Looks like a decent car, w brace, arms and struts can all be had at great prices from traders on here. Just don't consider buying anything from Nissan directly you'll be spending a fortune for no good reason.
