    Last night I had the winning bid on a 2000 Nissan Elgrand V. Its no the best Elgrand money can buy but for around $11000 landed and complied I think its pretty good value, especially when you consider what you can buy in Australia for the same money.

    Here is the comments Ben from J-Spec sent me this morning about it:
    2000 Nissan Elgrand V
    3,500cc petrol 4WD
    Automatic
    Pearl white two tone
    106,000km
    Dual climate control
    Dual airbags
    Dual sunroofs
    ABS brakes
    TV screen (I think it's factory)
    Engine and mechanicals appear to all be good
    Minor underbody rust but not an issue
    Was given a grade 3.5 with B interior, rear left quarter panel has been repaired or replaced which is why it was marked down half a grade, but it's not bad enough to give it an accident grade
    Interior quite tidy, no major imperfections
    Body good, just very minor marks and nothing that stands out
    Has aftermarket leather-look seat covers but they are a bit worn, underneath the seats are good.

    Ill put more photos up when I have them.

    Ben from J-Spec has been very helpful and fast in finding me possible cars. He has also helped me to avoid a few lemons, so definitely recommend him at this stage.

    Once I have this Elgrand the Legnum will be off family duties, so Ill be able to make it as low, stiff and loud as I like. Manual conversion will be done soon also :p

    Nice. I wanted to get one of the newer ones as our family bus but was over ruled and ended up with a Tarago.

    hehe, I would love to fit both of those items Paulie but I wont, any money I spend on the Elgrand is money I cant spend on the Legnum. I actually bidded on one last week that had those wheels with a bit of low, looked awesome

    You are a far stronger man than I am Chris, I could not own an El Grand and not pimp it out. :p

    Nice purchase, great price!
