Hi Steve

Welcome to the house of fun :biggrin:

The paint code is on the vin plate inside the engine compartment

5w30 is the Nissan recommended spec, however a lot of forum members have switched to 5w40 to make the engine a bit quieter. Fuchs titan supersyn is a good brand.

Best parts supplier.....

Depends what your buying. ECP are ok for general service items, just dont buy crossland filters off them. Brakes I always use a company called brakeparts, everything else is part specific. Fleebay is a great source as a lot of the suppliers, including Nissan have stores on there.

No meets i'm afraid, you could always organise one :biggrin:

Best regards
Milton :biggrin:
