    Nissan Teana on Steroids! 2017 NISMO Performance Package Is Here

    But in most cases, steroid is enhancement to performance (like in sports for stronger, faster, leaner/lighter sportman etc), not so much in appearance. I am disappointed with the engine dept. NISMO Exhaust Finisher won't help either.

    Many ppl tend to sell the car based on the price like: Price of the ori car + prices of performances parts + doing up the car (painting, refurbishment, etc)= Selling price. That could amount to a big price tag, which no many are willing to pay for it, unless the seller understand and value the...
