Arthur Dent, your post surprised me a lot! How could you get a Niva in Canada? I've heard, some Niva's were sold to GB, Latin America, France and Germany, but I didn't heard anything about niva's in Canada
BTW, getting the original parts should be a big problem for you Or you are going to buy them via internet?
I'm currently a design student at the University of Colorado. I would say I'm proficient in Rhino, and Beginner in 3dsMax. I haven't yet attempted to model a car.
On to what this thread is about...
I drive a 1996 toyota 4runner. I purchased the vehicle in 2005 when I was 16 years old. It was completely stock and had 160,000 miles on it. I've put far too much money into it now, and it has 248,000 miles. Still going strong!
Say goodbye to the Citroën C5 Tourer, say hello to the Renault Laguna III Estate.
During 2 years and a half with the C5, I experienced many troubles. I described them here, the latest are :
- Clutch was about to fail, while the car was only 81000km !
- One lock for the rear seat was broken, I was unable to fold it...
It's a corporate car, and one of my manager left us so I was able to pick his car and sell mine. So my new ride is a Laguna III Estate (station wagon) by Renault. Here are some details :
- Metal black.
- 16" alloy rims
- Limited edition named "Black Edition", which means the headlights housings are black too. Looks a bit like Darth Vader ride on the front side, but otherwise it's more elegant than the C5 (which was more aggressive).
- Diesel (yeah, it sucks), a bit less powerful (110 instead of 130hp) but less weight so it's much more fun to handle.
- Bluetooth enabled (I didn't have it in the C5) so it's nice for a music addict for me to be able to have the thousands of tracks stored in my smartphone available in the car without plugging anything. It's the major advantage of the change
The former user wasn't a genius at cleaning, so I had to spent a few hours to clean it up to match my integrist standards... Especially a really suspect white spot on driver seat... No comment needed, guys
