A PM helps one person, a public post on the forum helps thousands . Furthermore, helping someone via PM defeats the purpose of an open community.

Please share the details on this thread itself.

Thanks for the support & understanding

Sure. The workshop is located near sun empire, sinhgad road- Sai Car Clinic. They are coming up with one more branch in 3-4 months. Location is undecided.

You can contact Sushant Walki on 98229 99383/ 88055 29500. I have seen him work on a lot of luxury cars too. He has previously worked with BMW and Skoda service centers & has recently purchased a few scanners.

Hi,

Though Nissan India doesn't sell parts over the counter but you may look out for shops who stock OEM spares; we've one such shop in Park Circus in Kolkata who stocks original Nissan spares but he sells it at a slight premium over the mrp. Another option would be to bring back the old spares from service center and buy the same from aftermarket; I'm planning to follow this route and have brought back the old filters from the last service .

Regards,
Debrup

Cool Civic-AT at 10 years

My Civic-AT completes 10 years today, and still feels new.

Looks like it will go on for another 10 more years

Civics are build to last for ages, provided you take regular care of her. Mine is also 10+ years old, and still gives me feeling that i can use her for at least 5-7 years more

Congrats guys

Those were the HONDAs we used to aspire for. Whenever I see a civic pass by it always makes heads turn. Last year while in Oz my friend picked up a 6/7 year old civic AT with almost 1L kms on odo at some $10k. Was hard to believe it had run so much. Beautiful machine it was.

I wonder if these new age built-to-cost HONDAs available in India can get anywhere close
