Is the two-wheel drive Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi coming here?

You said in your review last year that the two-wheel drive version of the new 1.6 diesel Nissan Qashqai would be arriving "in the middle of the year". Any update on this, as Nissan Ireland has no mention of it on its web site, still just listing the older 1.5 dCi version?

Reckon it's a good bet to import a new Nissan Note?

I am considering buying a new Nissan Note. I have priced from a main dealer and also from a SIMI dealer  who imports from the UK. The import has a higher spec and is about €2,000 cheaper with all the standard warranties etc. Is there anything I should be aware of when buying an import?

Both are around the same price (Mégane is only €650 dearer). Which of these would be the most reliable and of better value?
