    I am excited to get new JDM.

    3,0L non-turbo V6 engine. 240 hp, not bad for the old sedan...

    Leather!

    Will post more pics later on.

    Nice car. What's the story here? Pretty random car to import.

    Thanks Luke!
    In fact, I was closely looking for this generation since 2015, when Megatol got his Gloria. With Cedric I am getting back to my Nissan roots, - Bluebird and Skyline (my first imports and love for the rest of my life...)
    Last three years I kind of enjoyed my Pajero iO but it started to bother me with bumpy ride and more often I started to recall Celsior which was perfect for my age and driving style :)
    I have high standards (low mileage and clean in/out) which is PITA I guess.
    That is why it was not easy to get such sample and it took more time than usually.
    I am really thankful to Derek for handling my demands wisely.

    Congrats!
    Why you didn't get a turbo? Not much difference in price but much more fun :)

    Also on Russian forums people prefer turbo because it is a regular injection engine, while non-turbo is direct-injection and has special high pressure fuel pump which is quite expensive and not very reliable when using Russian gasoline.

    But it should be good here in Canada.

    Thanks Megatol!
    It was my fault because I wanted "everything" (too demanding) Even this one I got because I erased sunroof as must to have feature :)
    I hope next time I'll get all I need in my "perfect car" (low mileage, clean in/out, leather, sunroof, tinted windows, rear spoiler and wiper) I think it is not easy but possible. In the past I got 5A, 4,5A, 4A cars. It is not easy, e.g. for 5A Pajero I was looking for 1,5 year... It is fun and rewarding process. I like my hobby SO much ;)

    Agree with you regarding gasoline...

    That's cool, it does seem like this would be an incredibly comfortable cruiser with a decent amount of powe. It looks like you found a really clean one as well. I applaud you on your patience. I don't think I could ever wait that long to get a vehicle haha.

    Thanks, Luke!
    And do not worry, the time will come... you'll be more patience when you be older ;)

    That looks like a clean comfy ride! I too don't have the patience; I can wait about 3-4 months then I'll change direction.
    I see a donut on the front right, is the oem wheel going to be included?

    Those back windows need some tint! Then it'll look splendid.

    Thanks! Yes, a stock tire is in the trunk. I do not upset too much because I will change tires anyway.

    Agree! I will start a new thread to see if smbd can recommend trusted tint shop.

    Started to use Cedric as a daily driver. It is just amazing! It is SO quiet and SO smooth running engine, if windows rolled up you cannot tell if the engine running or not, just by tachometer... Incredible driving experience. Almost as I had with Celsior. Acceleration is effortless, suspension like on a boat :) Cornering is excitable and never experienced before. Gas consumption is not so great from the very beginning. I guess I need to learn how to drive it properly (after more than three years with Pajero iO :))

    Funny thing, I just realized that my Cedric not equipped with cruise control!
    Not like I drive too much on a highway but still, it is nice to have and I assume for such car it is a must feature.
    Just curious, how it could affect resale value...

    Cruise control isn't commen in Japan even in higher end cars. They don't road trip the way we do here.

    You should check that Gloria Cedric forum. It could be the option to add it.

    On my Verossa also there is no cruise control, but all electronics is already there including wiring , just need to install cruise control switch and 4-pin stop switch and it will work.
    Could be similar for your Cedric.
