I thought I would start my own thread for my E51 Riders. Found many pictures from the beginning I want to keep in one area on the forum.
The reason for Jez and May? My son thought of the idea as he now has a Mini which he named Hammond so he thought why not call the E51's Jez and May! lol

Here are the auction pictures I received from the Japanese Agent (JAA) Simon Burger after contacting him through my documents I received when purchasing the Silver Elgrand.

These are the pictures from County Cars Strood that clinched the deal for me back in May/June 2016! This was the first vehicle I bought completely blind off the internet.... crazy I know as I always make sure I view cars before buying, but as I am based in The Netherlands this was not such an easy task... thank goodness everything was as described in the advert!

Haha @Brendan1969 I love my cream interior it makes it feel very spacious and bright, not the best for covering dirt but hey I keep it clean at all times! Your right they are identical except now you have a cruise control and I have a Throttle Controller! You need to bring yours over for a photshoot, then we will have all Rider colours in one picture! lol
I was also lucky with the white one (May), also has the same interior minus the dropdown screen!

Very excited finally found some white Rider indicators to replace my ambers as these are not the standard indicator colour on the Rider.
Before they arrive I want to try and get hold of some chrome or LED T10 bulbs and T20 for the rear to remove the fried egg look!

Are these the correct bulbs for the front wing indicators and rear indicators?

Front lights fitted with LED side lamps and Chrome Indicators so no more fried eggs! lol

Abbey Motorsports... or Nismo / Impul ecu
Had a reply back from them Rob. NO CAN DO sadly:joy::joy::joy::joy::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob: He did explain in detail to me that our Elgrand 3500 engine is quite " down tuned " version of the 350z car engine on a variety of different ways and its also a software thing too which they have to pay for from a company in the USA they use so by the time you have done everything and only gained about 10BHP he said the cost of it all seriously outways the power gain achieved.

He did however say the mods ive done already would indeed make a difference to how the vehicle will run in a positive way so at this time I am happy.
