oh my gawd!! oh my gawd!! oh my gawd!! oh my gawd!! oh my gawd!!
i got my new 2001 Sentra with P/P anda 5speed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
im so friggin happy guys. i havent posted in a long *** time and i apologize for not coming in to share the great *** news after i got it (its been 8 days now.) but i have been ENJOYING THE RIDE and ****.
my previous car was a 98 GXE whch i totalled in Aug '00, so there is not need to warn me and remind me to drive safely, i learned a valuable lesson. i lasted an UNBELEIVABLE 6 months without a car. i was chauffered to the store by my brother or sistere or mom or pops and it got terribly frustrating quick.
so heres the skinny:
on Valentine day, i go to Nissan Dealer and test drive the first SE i liked. 2001 with performance package. after the test drive we discussed numbers and i shook my head severl times in disgust, but my sales lady was so great, she got me what i wanted. i got it for $16,200 with only $200 down and $360 monthly (i know, its seems high, but my previous Sentra was $340 so the added $20 aint no biggie for me). and as an added plus, my insurance went down about %60 to WOO-HOO!!!
now i wanna rid my head of the mods i had planned for my little 98 GXE and fulfill my dreams of modding my 2001 SE.
heres what i think i want so far:
1. Place Racing CAI (do they still make the best one for us?) or should i go with a Stillen?
2. i read it several times in your own sigs and i must ask, WHAT IS A STROMUNG EXHAUST? whats their site URL? i would like something that closely resembles the look of the current exhaust twin-tips without too much of a rumble. i'd like to keep my baby stealthy and sleeperish!!!
<that freaking VTEC prelude lives down my block and terrorized me as a child, its time to register some pay back MO-FO>
3. remember how the previous gen Maxima had a decal on the rear doors that said something like "4DSS" i think it was for 4 Door Sport Sedan or something like that. where can a get and accurate coy of those decals for my baby? (OH, i forgot to mention, the color is a dark forest green. what is that called? Forrest or Hunter?)
anyways, on to numero cuatro:
4.i thunkt about a carbon fibre dash kit with door panel inserts. i havent seen nor heard about those before, but am sure someone here knows where i can find those. then i thunkt that maybe it look better if i go with a luxurious wood trim appearance. after all, my car is very nice, ahemm!
than i gave it some more thinking. i rather have a brushed aluminum or titanium looking material. actually, aluminum would be the ****. where can i get it?
and 5. a front kit. i love the rear, i adore the side sills, but the front must be tossed out. that unsightly horisontally mistreated air dam between the foggs is not pretty. who makes a nice replacement? i forget whose ride i seen on the boards but this dood has a black SE with a custom grille and a clean front mask. i think its a stillen judging by the appearance.
6. id like to replace also the grille. i read the HOW-TO-ARTICLE written by the black SE owner i mentioned above. nicely detailed i might add! but id liek a different look. maybe of one that looks ... well, i dunno. who makes grilles for us?
wow. thank you in advance for your responses. if i dont come back for a day or two, its cus im out slowly adding miles to my baby. i havent driven for 6 months, so i got some making up to do.
oh yeah, b'fore i forget. how many mile must i drive to break her in?
i mean, i dont want to race, im simply cruising right now. but should the need or the desire arise to slap a supped up ****vic with DOHC-VTEC stickers on it, or something entirely different and quicker. i'd like to be well prepared and have no fear and know what my new SE is capable of.
muchas gracias, and i am indeed enjoying the ride. thanks
