Magic 1000

Post by wrinkly47 » Sat Apr 09, 2016 1:01 am

The first 1000 miles has taken me quite some time to achieve due to recent weather conditions etc. I have followed the running in procedures to the letter more or less but now feel less restrained. So, it has just had its first taste of full throttle acceleration and performed to expectations. Ok it may not be the fastest car I have driven but it is the first turbo equipped one. The most surprising aspect is how the acceleration just keeps steady through the gears and reaches license losing speeds before you realise. I have the cvt model and perhaps I should have said `simulated` gears. At the time I was in sport mode and using auto mode rather than paddle shifts, No matter what. I am one very satisfied Nismo owner. Roll on July when I am taking the car (but not the better half) to the Isle of Man(the one place in the British Isles that has no national speed limit!

Gets a lot faster after the first 12 k service
Then really loosens up after 20k
Mine is an animal after 36 months and 27k miles
Very flexible engine and gearbox ratio
The Nismo has landed and I Love it
