The Review

clock 75000km/5yr For 1st time car owner, it is a good start to learn about car features, performance, setup. mod car intake , use simota filter + air guide, become more responsive at the tap of the accelerator, but when climbing & down steep slope at genting highland, cope up, smell engine burn out at down slope at 3rd gear, slow acceleration at up slope. wonder what it would like if mod the exhaust legally. Any Nissan Owner want to sell your _Fox Exhaust Pipe?

Strengths

Engine is quiet at idling.
Just nice to ferry wife, 2 kids below 7 & 2 yrs old.

hard braking at stopping, need v.good control at it.
slow over taking at 40~70rpm.
