We won 3rd Place – Best Owners Club Stand – NE Auto Show, Darlington 2019

Well last weekend, on Sunday 12th May 2019, we attended the North East Auto Show in Darlington. We had 12 Elgrand’s on the stand, each one unique (as always) and each one sitting proudly amongst the hundreds of show cars on display. The sun was out and everyone in attendance had a great day.

Little did we know that during the day the judges were quietly walking around judging the display stands and picking their favourites. In all honesty, as the banners and flags were sitting in a box in my house ready to move… I was not expecting to win anything with just the display of cars… but we got given a 3rd place award for Best Owners Club Stand out of EIGHTEEN stands!

A massive thank you to everyone who came to the show, and played a part in winning us this trophy. Such a massive honour to receive an award like this and just goes to show that the Elgrand stands out in any crowd, whether it’s modified or not.

Next up with have JDM Combe, followed quickly by Jap Show, then Cumbria Auto Show, Yakushi and Jap Show Finale. A busy year for the club. And we know we’ll have a great time regardless of any trophy we may receive.

JAE 2018

With 24 hours and 30 minutes until it’s the start of the JAE weekend, we’re all ready and raring to go! Planning has been ongoing for about 8 months solid and now we’re starting to see the fruits of the struggles.

Excited members, excited administration, plans in place, designs in hand… JAE… ElgrandOC are coming.

Seven at JAE 2017

It’s going to be another weekend of looking our best, having a good time, polishing the vans and drinking. Did I mention drinking? Our founder Karl has his van in for the Show N Shine this year; so if you get a chance to drop in to the Arena (or even purchase a Saturday ticket), head in to the  Arena and get up close and personal to see what it’s all about!


There will be a lot of pictures and video coming, keep an eye on the Instagram account for sure, it’ll be one to follow for the next few weeks!

EOC’s new Webserver

After our old host decided to simply pack up and disappear (lé poof) we had no choice but to go to our new server a month early. Well, this is that. We haven’t fixed HTTPS connection just yet, so expect that to quietly come back soon, however as always you connection data is still secure and all information is stored in encrypted databases.

So, the new server! It can handle more traffic, more members, more files, it’s just better… I mean, it’s a new server… Bigger… More powerful… It’s the VQ35 of the EOC server world…

Should anything be wrong, as always feel free to get in touch with our always helpful admin team on Facebook or the Forums. We are Karl, Matt (Seven), Ellis (Headless), Jim (LLGrandJ), Mark, Alan (Rapperfrapper), Brian (BMR) and Robin (MrRob_in).

Aaaaalso – thanks to everyone who made JAE 2017 our best one yet! The EOC is definitely the best Owner’s Club I’ve been with. Good people, good music and good times. We’ll see you again at the next one!

ElgrandOC has moved to HTTPS 1

Well it’s been a long time coming, but we have now moved the whole website over to HTTPS. What does this mean? It means the site now has an additional layer of security to ensure that any personal details you enter into any of the EOC webpages is kept safe (email addresses, passwords, names etc).

This will also help to improve our Google search ranking as it has become a criteria for Google to rank based on the security of the website.

Whether this means anything to you or not, this is a huge step in the right direction for the club!

ElgrandOC’s new landing page 2

Welcome to Elgrand OC, the Nissan Elgrand owner’s club by the enthusiasts, for anyone! Karl and our host did a fantastic job of ironing out the errors in our server and forum-based community, the place is running so much smoother and looks way better as a whole. Matt “Seven” is working on building a new landing page and forum banner to bring the website right in to 2017 – tidier, easier to navigate and better showcase the community.


Join us on the Forums or Facebook to get involved – we look forward to meeting you online and at our various meets across the UK!

Welcome to the new ElgrandOC Website 9

Well, after some rocky roads, ElgrandOC is now on a new server and running better than ever. Unfortunately there was some data lost in the migration, so we are currently rebuilding the site. The forum is up and running, and will be worked on in the coming weeks. We also need to get the shop and the wiki back online, this will be done in due course, so please bear with is.

We really hope that the new server provides a much better user experience for you guys, there has certainly been a HUGE improvement. It’s been tough going to get to this point, but as ever, the team have worked as hard as possible to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
