Nismo performance parts now available in Canada
Mississauga, Ontario – Nissan Canada Inc. has announced that Nismo high-performance parts and accessories are now available at Nissan dealers nationwide. Up until now, Nismo components and apparel have been available only in Japan and the U.S.
Nismo (Nissan Motorsports International) has historically been the company’s source of Nissan racing technology and performance components. It has provided factory-tuned performance products for everything from Nissan street cars to racing machines at Le Mans and the IMSA GTP series.
The performance parts fall into two main categories, S-tune and R-tune. S-tune components are for street-driving enthusiasts; the components offer increased performance but with a one-year/20,000 km Nissan Parts and Accessory limited warranty, which aftermarket parts do not.
R-tune equipment is for weekend racers or hard-core enthusiasts; these parts are destined for the track and do not carry a warranty.
Nismo equipment is available for the 350Z, Sentra, Altima, Frontier and Xterra. There is also a selection of Legacy performance parts for older vehicles, including the 300ZX, 240SX and Sentra. Nismo apparel includes hats, T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets; accessories include coffee mugs, race bags and seatbelt pads.
