Your Customised Navaras with Genuine Nissan Accessories

Modified Navara ST-X in Black

The new Nissan Navara for 2015 (NP300) has been very well received, with both long-term Nissan fans getting in touch to upgrade to the latest model, as well as extra Nissan Navara owners who are stepping into the Nissan family for the first time. Even Piha Surf Lifesavers are sporting a new Nissan Navara fleet for their rescue missions (photos on TVNZ)!

One of the great things about the new Navara is the range of purpose-built accessories available through Nissan themselves. The Genuine Nissan accessories available allow new owners to customise their vehicle to suit their own needs and style in the confidence that their accessories were specifically designed to fit their vehicle and have been tested to extremely high standards.

Take a look at some of the photos below to see how our own customers are modifying their new Navaras to suit their specific trades.

Pictured above: Marcus and Chloe picked up their awesome new Navara ST-X looking stunning in Panther Black. Marcus added some unique touches to the ute with 20″ Black Rhino Tanay Wheels and some serious looking Cooper Tyres with a very subtle lift applied to get the stance right. Tinted windows and a checkplate loadlid complete the tough look.

GRC Car Audio’s New Nissan Navara

Glenn Chisholm, owner of mobile car audio installation service, GRC Car Audio, is a huge Nissan fan and long-term guest of Cockram Nissan. Due to the nature of his business, he spends a substantial amount of time on the road and carries a lot of equipment with him. His vehicle isn’t just another tool in his business… it practically IS his business!

A few years ago, Glenn decided that a Nissan Navara was the only ute for the job, and our team proudly worked with him to customise his vehicle to suit his unique needs. His Navara has proven itself time and again (while also acting as an impressive billboard for his services while driving around Christchurch), but it was finally time to trade it in for a new model. With the recent launch of the all-new Navara, in Glenn’s eyes there was no other choice!

This time around, Glenn had the choice of a large range of purpose-made Genuine Nissan Navara accessories, and the results speak for themselves. These accessories are produced by Nissan themselves – the same designers and engineers that built the Navara – specifically to provide a perfect fit, do the job that they were made for, and to last as long as the vehicle itself. Accessories that Glenn has used include:

  • Detatchable Tow-bar
  • Tubliner
  • Hard-lid
  • Bonnet Protector
  • Moulded Rubber Floor Mats

Combined with his sharp sign-writing and personalised plate, the result speaks for itself. As you can see, his Navara has a huge amount of road presence, really ‘showing-off’ his services, and he’s already appreciating the improved ride-handling and impressive range of advanced features, designed to help not just with comfort but also giving Glenn extra tools to help him stay in touch with his clients while staying safe on the road.


Before and After

Glenn was kind enough to share a few words with us about his opinions on his new vehicle.

“After owning the Nissan Navara STX-400 and STX-450 models, the next progression was to purchase the brand-new NP-300 STX. This vehicle is my office as we are a mobile car audio installation company in the wider Christchurch area.

I have been driving the Nissan for about two weeks now and the major changes have produced an outstanding product! From the refined interior to the smooth power and upgrade in the rear suspension, the NP-300 is a pleasure to drive.

I had only had the new vehicle for about two hours, before I started to install some of our company’s leading products as listed below,

  • Pioneer speakers: front and rearGRC-Car-Audio-FB-Post
  • Pioneer 4 channel amplifier
  • Pioneer under seat slimline subwoofer
  • Hidden radar detector system to front grill and dash
  • Replacement rear view mirror/screen and front camera
  • 20″ mags and tyres
  • GRC advertising graphics

Cockram Nissan has been an awesome client to GRC Car Audio Ltd for over seven years, we have worked with the sales team and their clients to supply and install products which enhance the Nissan brand.”

Nissan LEAF at EVolocity

EVolocity in Christchurch with Cockram Nissan

On 30th November, we had the pleasure of attending the EVolocity event at Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna, in Christchurch. This event was New Zealand’s ‘first ever day of electric motorsport’ and featured a range of electric vehicles and events.

EVolocity is a motor sport event with an environmental twist – demonstrating electric vehicle performance and efficiency. EVolocity aims to promote the use of electric vehicles while also encouraging New Zealanders to innovate, invent and become involved in the future of transport.

As well as our own Nissan LEAF – and those of the Christchurch City Council, Orion, and a few private owners – the event was host to Killacycle – the world’s fastest electric drag motor bike (0 to 100km/h in just 1 second!) along with the fastest woman on a motorcycle in the world, Eva Hakansson, 16 Canterbury high school teams and their own electric vehicles, and a variety of privately owned electric vehicles, such as this amazing solar powered vehicle!

Solar Powered Vehicle

A highlight of the event for us was when we were visited by Craig. Craig is currently travelling from Cape Reinga to Bluff in his black Nissan LEAF and documenting his travel on his blog, ‘A Kiwi EVenture‘.

Craig on his EVenture

We asked Craig how he was enjoying such a long journey in his LEAF – a 100% electric vehicle – and his response was that he couldn’t be happier! He has attended a number of events and shows along the way and stops at caravan parks to charge his LEAF before moving onto the next destination. In his words, he’ll never go back to a combustion engine again!

Craig's Nissan LEAF

Good luck with the rest of your journey, Craig. We look forward to seeing the photos!

We’ll be putting together a video showing a few highlights from the day, so watch this space!

Jessica's 1990 Nissan Sentra

Jessica’s Sentra Passes 500,000km!

Proud Nissan owner, Jessica, recently shared this photo of her 1990 Nissan Sentra with us on Facebook.

But… this isn’t just any old car, the cherished vehicle has been in Jessica’s family for over 20 years (with Jessica driving it for 16 of those years) and has just ticked over 500,000 kilometres on the odometer!

We asked Jessica if she has any secrets as to how she’s looked after her vehicle for so long. She said that her father always told her to use Mobil 1 oil in the engine and that she’s notorious for running the petrol tank on empty… although we’re not entirely sure that this helps 😉

Thanks again, Jessica! Here’s to the next 500,000km!
