Well, sorry but you are not 100 % right.
Diesel models are manufactured here in Spain, and sold troughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Until last year also V6 petrol engines were assembled in Barcelona and sold over here as well, but due to the price of fuel just a small quantity were sold per year, so Nissan decided to close production off. But (at least in Spain) petrol cars were also offered.
We can choose between manual or auto transmission (I prefer manual by far).
Painted grill depends on models. Mine is the top version and comes with chromed grill. To be honest I had preferred painted grill, but no option.
Anyway to paint it car scheme colour is not so difficult. It is just a matter of finding a good painitng workshop.
And this is the car I borrowed from my Company for the nine months I was living in Northampton (UK) two years ago. It was the same than Spanish models except, of course, steering wheel position.
