    pre or facelift?

    even tho i build these cars every day i would definitely recommend them - not often i can say that about a model i build.

    the +2 model is the one id go for personally - ok ur not in this position i should imagine, then again u might be if its a like for like replacement being a 7 seater

    the rear 2 seats however are ludicrously bad and only good for pigmes and tiny kids.

    once folded flat however, its a decent boot size

    engines are excellent too, especially the derv 1.5 & 2.0 Renault engines. 1.5 K9K engine is a lot better than u would imagine hauling that big beast around, the bigger M1D 2.0 Diesel is a much better proposition however. Both are very good well developed proven engines though...

    1.6 & 2.0 Petrol engines also avail, 1.5/1.6 FWD with both 2.0 models either FWD or with the option of 4WD available.

    All in all a very good car, the amount of cars we produce on a daily basis is testimony to how good this car really is.

    if it had the 350Z engine then it would have been the Murano (more of a top end X5/X6 type competitor)

    I sit corrected, wasn't sure what it was meant to be. Very odd machine, drunk like a homeless person too

    Geordie bandit if you make these have you seen that black purple pearly colour they do? on the facelifts? Fair play ugly cars,mint colours available. I don't really see the need for a 4x4 version along with FWD either. Its one or the other for me as far as the target market goes.

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though

    think i described it badly

    what i meant was the 2.0 petrol or 2.0 diesel are available as FWD or 4WD

    2 seperate models , permanent FWD or permanent 4WD not switchable as it may have sounded with my description

    yes i know the colour very well - not sure of the exact name/code but could fine out if u so wish.

    The dark metallic red they do on the facelifts is a nice colour too - especially with the privacy glass.


    Agree on the Murano one though, bit of a flop in UK markets but quite successful overseas i believe.

    Actually looked at them as a replacement after the GSi was written off, seemed pretty good.

    The Qashqai is one of the cars that I can't help but like, even though I'm not sure why. We had a poke round one and a test drive a few weeks back after my accident, weighing up the options of getting a new car on finance. That was a 2.0 Derv. I was quite impressed, but ultimately my sensible head kicked in and I decided to buy something with whatever I ended up with from the insurers and not take out finance or anything.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
