Hello everyone, I am new to the car scene and obviously new to the forums. I joined because I don't have many friends who are car people so I was hoping I could meet new people here. Also, I am in college and fairly new to the car scene so I'm always looking for events to attend and ways to get involved. I am currently working on baby mods for my car and looking for sponsorships because as I said, I'm in college and money is tight. If anyone has any suggestions or could help me out at all please reply or message me. Thanks so much!

Welcome to the club!

Unless yours is a 2009+ with under 105k miles, make sure you get the timing belt done ASAP. Like, before any modding
I have an 06 with 114xxx km I don't think I have had mine down should I get that done right away is what your saying?

The timing belt is the heart of our engines. That brakes well you will need a rebuild or a new engine. I got mine done at fire stone for 450$

They're not going to destroy the engine, but sure. If theyre original they're probably pretty rough anyway
I get all my service and work done by Nissan cause of my family and the Mitsu Dealer is a joke where I live. They quoted me 1260 CAD to get my timing belt done... that sounds ridiculous compared to the guy who had his done for 450$.

Does this quote sound reasonable to you guys?

It's about a 7 hr job. Parts are cheap it's the labor that will jack up the price.

Also realize that if the job isn't done correctly then it'll be about 7k-10k to fix. You can look around to see who will give you a cheaper quote but don't be surprised if there isn't much of a difference in price.
