Looking to buy a Stagea

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy this wagon and wondering if the community can help with some questions.

1. Anything to look out for during a pre-sale inspection?

2. Looking at the parts list thread, am I correct in saying parts for general/regular maintenance (change oil/brake pads) are easy to get hold off?

3. What are weak parts of these cars if any?

4. Fuel mileage for someone who doesn't have a heavy foot?

5. Is the boot as big as a commodore wagon?

Thank you in advance!

1-Check for rust under the mirrors
2-Parts are easy to get
3-Stagea brakes are a let down but most have a 4 spot Nissan upgrade
4-fuel mileage isn’t that bad I average 400-450 per tank
5-much bigger than a commodore wagon. ( and cooler )

When you say "this" wagon was there supposed to be a photo or a link? If not what model are you interested in?

And the water gets on foam under the mirror and they start to rust there it’s pretty common.

Yes the 4 pistons from skylines fit and work better

There is a huge difference between the C34 and M35 Stageas - chalk and cheese.

Read the thread above this one helpfully titled "Buyer's Guide -the C34 Stagea" and then a bit further up

"Summary of the M35 info Uber Thread"

That's what I assumed too :)

There is an awesome green, manual stagea in sydney that would probably be for sale soon. Well looked after, low klm car in good condition.

This was my 3rd C34

Stagea 2014 M35 Wheels.jpg

Love it :) (both the colour, and that it was your third :) )

They also came in a very light green and a two tone light green....but that is the green I meant.

And I know I sound indecisive, but I also love that series 2 yellow. It is so understated for a family car, kind of gives away the stagea secret....
