  1. Hi Guys and Gals, I am regrettably selling my 2001 Nissan M35 ARX-Four Stagea. I have owned this car since 2008, and imported the car from Japan myself. In this time its been nothing but reliable and a joy to own. The car has done 123,000km. I have since been given a work car, so the Stagea has to go to help pay for the house For those of you who don't know about the features of the M35 ARX-Four - The car has awesome power from the 2.5L V6 Turbo, and the ATTESA ET-S all wheel drive and rear wheel steering is fantastic through the corners and great off road as well. Inside, the car has full leather, auto headlights, heated and electric front seats, six stacker CD, climate control, rear view mirrors that dip when in reverse and fold shut when the car is locked. The rear seats fold fully flat from handles within the boot and creates a huge luggage bay. The car has done many country trips, and this is one of the areas the car excels. Its very comfortable on long distances and the powerful engine makes overtaking an ease. Storage is also impressive with a huge boot along with further storage in pockets and beneath the boot floor. Normally the ARX has black arches and guards, but I have had mine painted the body colour which in my opinion looks a lot better. The radio does not work as standard with Aus frequencies, but I have installed a frequency modifier which receives all the stations. Also included with this car are roof racks. There were no off the shelf roof rack kits that fit the NM35, so I have modified the brackets to take an X-Trail rack foot bolt pattern. These racks are easily removable in a few minutes. *The bike carriers shown in some photos are not included*. The car has recently had a full service, with all drive belts replaced, engine oil and filter, transmission oils and all diff oils, spark plugs, air filter and fuel filter. There is no timing belt to change in this car as it uses a timing chain. Also replaced recently are the brake pads and a full brake bleed. During my ownership I have also put on new front slotted rotors. The car has 245/50 R18 Khumo Ecsta KU31 tyres with 60% life left. I am asking $12,500 for it, but I am negotiable so feel free to make me a reasonable offer! Thanks, Brendan
  2. Can't believe I have had no interest for this great car! I am very prepared to negotiate, make me an offer!
  3. Price drop to $13,000 ppl, I have been given a work car so I don't need it anymore.

  5. Ok thanks, Ill give that a go.
  6. Hi Guys, Sorry to reopen an old topic, but I am looking to get a roof rack on my M35 and have had the same difficulties finding a suitable one. What model/part number Thule roof rack is it that people have been installing on their M35s, and what have they used for the riser? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Brendan
  7. Awesome! Sounds like those pads cover all the bases. They also seem to beat the Project Mu pads also listed on GSL Rallysport for frictional coefficient. Thanks very much for the info, Ill send Jetpilot1986 a PM later today and order some
  8. Hey Guys, Well my pads are getting near to the wear limits and Im looking to get some new ones. From what I have read on here they are the same as 350Z touring pads? My question is what pads are people using and what are they using the car for? I my car is purely for the street but as I live in the Perth hills the brakes get a good beating every now and then So obviously I dont want a pad thats too aggressive on the rotors or one that has a heat range suited for the track, but at the same time id like slightly increased performance over stock. Does anyone have any recommendations for what pad I should use and where I may find them? Cheers, Brendan
  9. Hi everybody, A while ago I took out one of my mirrors on a pole I didn't see, and I am chasing the left hand wing mirror cover to replace my damaged one. I don't need the motors, glass or light, just the outer cover. Nissan will not sell me just the outer cover and they want $560 + GST for the entire mirror. Can anyone help? Thanks very much, Brendan Diss
  10. Thankyou everyone for your suggestions, I will be sure to pull the whole headlight out tonight or tomorrow and see if I can find the problem wiring. At least I also have a working headlight to check the correct wiring on lol. Thanks again and I will keep you posted on what the findings are. Brendan
  11. Hmm I might give the compliance workshop a call about that, however im not sure it is their fault as the headlight was working when I got the car. Im not in my warranty period, but they certainly might know how to fix it though. Thanks, Brendan
  12. Hi everybody, I am having an issue with my M35 where my righthand headlight (low beam only) is not working. I have just changed the bulb only to have no success. On further probing, it seems that there is no voltage to the plug at all. I have checked all the fuses I can find (both next to the battery in the engine bay and in drivers side footwell and cannot find any duds. Trying to trace the wires through the engine bay I can across no fuses and eventually the loom disappeared into the passenger side of the firewall. I have also tried the ECU fault codes check on the CEL just in case, which reported no faults. Has anybody else come across this problem or know of any other fuse box that I am missing? Any assistance would be really appreciated thanks Brendan
