Hi folks. I have recently bought a 2015 E-NV200 Tekna Rapid plus, I excpected it to have auto wipers and lights, but it doesnt. When i look at others advertised they all say auto wipers at least. Does anyone know if its supposed to have auto wipers and headlamps?
Cheers Andy

Clearly it doesn't, but it must be a relatively early one as the 2016 do have them. Do you have all the other Tekna kit such as the better HU, cruise control etc?

I just found out its previously had major repairs after a front end smash, so was wondering if they replaced the light and wiper stalks with the wrong ones. . . or maybe it just didnt have them.
Yeah its got the cruise , speed limiter and higher spec head unit IMG_20200711_165552.jpg IMG_20200711_165606.jpg

I'd be very suspicious. Ask Nissan customer services with your VIN and they'll be able to tell you about part number 25260EM11E. As far as I can see they always had them.

Was it recorded as damaged on the database? Have you checked whether it was re-inspected by VOSA to get it back on the road - if so the work should be recorded.

Hi, no its HPI clear.
All I know so far is, the previous owner sold it to WeBuyAnyCar.com in March, at which time it had never been damaged. So whatever happened to it was after him selling it to WeBuyAnyCar.
So i am hoping to get some info from WeBuyAnyCar and / or from BCA auctions.

I didnt atually know it had been damaged, until someone pointed out to me that, the headlamps and a lot of other parts at the front, had numbers / codes written on them in TipEx, and other security markings, which is apparently common for second hand parts, then on closer inspection the full front end has been repainted.

I am happy with the van, I just woul like to know what has happened to it

That's very trusting unless you know them. WBAC is a common route of disposing of cheaply rebuilt undeclared salvage vehicles, and the respray, security marked parts and non-functional aircon all point to a backstreet repair.
Unless you are sure of your ability I would suggest that you pay for a professional inspection.

Thanks for the advice, its really appreciated, the previous owner seems very genuine and he got top dollar for it from WeBuyAnyCar. I think it probably got damaged and repaired in the 3 months between them buying it and it turning up at auction.
I was thinking of an AA inspection, but Ill see what i can find out first, then decide where to go next

For a while some options were in another pack. Heated seats, steering and mirrors was the winter pack. Really the vans can be all over the place in terms of options. I've seen base spec ones have auto wipers and Tekna ones not.

It seemed Nissan just used whatever was in the parts bin at the time.
