Politics / Re: FG Changes Name Of Science Ministry, Charges It With Innovation Agenda by Jcael(m): 4:32pm On Aug 06

Who knows, what couldn't be achieved under the old name could miraculously be happening with this new change in name.

And when Innovation doesn't prove effective, Research will be added to the long name. And when research proves ineffective, Advancement will be affixed.

Until they all understand that an abokki remains an abokki, even he wears a tie.

Yours was better. I have been with them since 2016, twas a nice account with a good amount of dollars monthly. My account was deleted this week with a sorry excuse of not being able to verify my identity.

Publish drive isn't any better. They are way too edgy. Cheers.

Paying tax is not the issue. The issue is, what do the masses get in return? Will this money be accounted for?

You pay govt tax on rent and you step out to bad roads No water??

Congratulations bro. Enjoy your ride.

I want to write a review of my car buying experience with Amdman.
I started following this thread since May last year,and when i was ready early this year i decided to take the risk by contacting Amdman.I told him my choice of car and he found one for me. After test driving, he assured me it was a good buy.I made part payment,and the car got to the shipper 7th February.The car left Canada 14th of March,got to Nigeria 15th April. Between this time, i had already completed my payment,and anxiety was building due to the ravaging pandemic causing delays,anyways i was also tracking the vessel,but the point is ,i was thinking Amdman might ask that i add more cash due to the fluctuating exchange rate,but he did not.
finally after about two to three weeks the car came was cleared.
My observations:
His cars are affordable.
The car i bought is as clean as he said.
the engine is in top condition.
Only issue i noticed when bringing the car back was the AC wasn't blowing very well,but i just changed the resistor and its fine,the dashboard lights too weren't working,i had to replace the bulbs,also one of the fog lights was broken ,which has been replaced. I actually wanted to wait till i have done a thorough wash of the interior and love-vendor it before writing this review,but i just decided to go ahead.
So my assessment of Amdman:
He is a sincere man ,a man of integrity, he is truly rare.
He is straight forward in his dealings,if we had more of him in Nigeria,i think things might be a bit better.
On communication ,i would say i had a bit of a challenge there, because i noticed most times when i drop chats ,it doesn't indicate that he has read them, so what i did was ,anytime i noticed him online,i call him on video or audio,and my messages drop immediately, and he responds to any inquiry i make,no matter how silly it might be.
so on my personal scale of 100%, i would score Amdman 90%
Thank you Amdman for getting me my first car,I am satisfied and happy.
God bless you.
i forgot to add, the car came with 4 extra tires on alloy wheels,complete accessories in the boot,car manual, spare key.
Never had any issues with the customs on the way too,only normal sorting.

Listen, only immature punks would lie about marital status to a chick.

Why? Most don’t care and we’re hunted and very well sought after by the ladies.

With our wedding ring intact we’ll move on you like President Trump would cheesy

Note to boyfriends, it’s us married folks taking care of and making your girlfriend look radiant.

Edit: on yah all’s wedding date, that mysterious hell of a big gift is from us. That “Uncle” that rented that expensive and unaffordable event center for your wedding? We paid for it. On Valentine’s Day we release her to you. But that pressing appointment the day after valentines? She’s coming to juba for us.

Be guided and don’t be misled.

PS: we have the money, class and exposure that’s every wanton little girls dream. But she needs to pacify society and her parents and have a struggling guy that they’re patching it together with. It’s all good but please stop demonizing us married men. We make the world go around.

thanks. last question, how long did you wait to have your car after it was discharged in Tincan?

It took around 3 weeks. Tho I guess mine was an extreme case scenario, due to covid 19 troubles.

Other people have gotten theirs within a week to two weeks on this forum.

thanks. when it successfully sailed, what was the update in the tracking website. was it "discharged at Tincan Island"?

how has been your experience with your ride so far?

The update was that it moved from Togo to Benin, and then Benin to tincan.

I was tracking with both the vessel's website and other sites like marine traffic.

I have been enjoying it. Like enjoying it so much. No regrets!.

to those that have successfully gotten their cars from Amdman. How long does it take for your car to arrive Nigeria from Lome, Togo. cos my tracking number has been showing Lome for some days now.

Had same experience. Vessel was at Lome for 4 days or so. But it eventually sailed.

Just be calm. It will arrive safely. Congrats in advance on your ride.
Career / Re: Insulation by Jcael(m): 10:24pm On Jun 02, 2020

Please once you get let me know. I really appreciate your help.
Am thinking of increasing the wheels to 17inches.
What do you think

I can't say much on d wheels, I guess you should look into reviews online. My car comes with 17" rims by default cos it's 2006. Nurey should be able to advice on this.

On the obd2 car scanner. I guess I'll be going for a wireless obd2 scanner (either Bluetooth or wifi enabled obd2 scanner). I read a certain review that it's better, cheaper and more detailed. I will likely get one before the month runs out. Will keep you posted.

Cc nurey
Career / Re: Insulation by Jcael(m): 9:44pm On Jun 02, 2020

How much is the scanner please?

I'm still researching a good one for my car. So I can't give u an intelligent answer on that.

I know there are Bluetooth obd2 scanners and some scanners are within 10k-30k. Dunno
Career / Re: Insulation by Jcael(m): 7:41pm On Jun 02, 2020

Thanks bro. I really appreciate.

Just remembered this. A known person here on nairaland adviced me to get an obd2 car scanner while I was expecting the car.

The mechanic said same thing. So I'd suggest you do same. It will always come in handy. Cheers on your new ride.
Career / Re: Insulation by Jcael(m): 8:32am On Jun 02, 2020

Thank you so much.
I got a 2005 model t30. Am presently using 2007 honda Accord. Got the xtrail because I believe is cheap and because of the bad roads around my side. Please where you based and do you have a trusted mechanic? Minus the regular servicing,did you change the gear oil?

It's my pleasure. Yes the xtrail is pocket friendly and would give the needed ground clearance. In fact one of my regular routes is really very bad and that was also one of d reasons I opted for a Cuv.

I'm based in Lagos. I really don't trust mechanics. I had my own mechanic before. But then an elder bros referred me to another who seemed very truthful, knows what he is doing, and affordable. Infact with his help I was able to do so much and he seems sincere. But it's too early to start concluding, you know how our people are.

But he had a solid reference from my bros anyways. I didn't change the gear oil ó. Twas okay and he told me not to bother about it after checking.

Career / Re: Insulation by Jcael(m): 8:03am On Jun 02, 2020

Hi jceal, my email is bad. Can we talk here?

Good morning gloryon. Congrats on your ride in advance.

Mine is a 2006 xtrail. It has been a lovely ride all the way. I was torn between so many choices before finally settling for the xtrail. I had considered several cuvs and sedans.. But then after a lot of asking around from folks here on nairaland, reading so many reviews online, comparing it with some of my earlier choices and talking to someone I know that drives it here in Nigeria. I settled for the xtrail.

It's less than 3 weeks old, so my review would be concise. Based on research I did, and based on my little experience of use. It is a fine crossover with good handling. I love the response when you accelerate, of course it's a 2.5l 4cyl engine with 165hp. Same as the engine on the altima.

The fuel consumption is fine. Infact one of the people I spoke with said he uses 10litres for a 100km journey. I'm not big on fuel consumption, so I haven't taking time to study that in details. But I can assure you, it's really good fuel consumption wise.

I also discovered it has ample space at the trunk for hauling stuffs. It is a perfect practical vehicle.

When it came I had to check the suspension parts and all. My technician says some of the suspension parts may be slightly more expensive than regular parts, but it wouldn't break down ever so often.

Lastly, the recommended engine oil weight is 5w30. I chose mobile 1. Nissan AT-Matic D Fluid or Dexron III fluid for re4f04b transmission fluid change, with 9qts dry fill capacity. Also, I guess I read somewhere on a review thread that it does 22mpg city, 29mpg highway and 26mpg combined.

I used few cars before now, and I just need something simple to take myself and the family through our daily running. I will say I'm satisfied.

Disclaimer: I'm not a car reviewer or technician like the likes of the greats on nairaland. So my review is strictly based on personal experience, other people's experience. and other studies
online. Congrats again.
