This may sound kinda weird, but I was just realizing that pretty soon all of our cars (especially the SE's) are going to be identical in appearance and modifications.

Think about it. How many of you have a Place Racing CAI? How many own a Stromung exhaust? Who intends to buy Unorthadox pullies? Who has money set aside for the Hotshot header? Who has the Stillen Spoiler? Who else is down for a Eibach Spring group deal? Chances are you answered yes to one, or possibly all of those questions.

I was looking at everyone's signatures today, when I realized that they were all the same! Eventually, each of our cars will be a "carbon copy" of other member's vehicles. Perhaps, we should call it the "B15Sentra.net" edition Sentra! :D

Personally, this doesn't bother me, but I know people that get all freaked out if they see another car with the same wheels as their car. What do you guys think?

You know Max, I don't mind that I have the same mods as anyone else on the BB. It would bother me if I had to see them everyday, same mods, maybe even same color! :) I'm going to try to make my car as unique as possible, given the amount of mods are availible to us. I know I'm the only one around these parts with a Stromung Exhaust, which is cool, so people come up to me and ask me what type of exhaust is that. I think of it as an honor to have these mods with the same people that have them here. Does that sound weird? Like Gene's ride, I mean, he has the spoilerette and the Konig's..mine will probably have Axis's and stock grill, but he has the same exhaust and same intake, but his car is an auto, and mine is 5 spd. :)

Overall, there is something different besides the overall mods that we can do, we just have to be unique about it, and don't copy every single thing that they do.

I think you've nothing to worry about in terms of passing your identical modded car. Nissan sells, what?, ~ 30,000 Sentras a year. There can't be more than 50 regular posters of B15 cars here. That means we each get a state. :)

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>This is true,,,,I am representing Rhode Island :D
It's not that there's a ton of sentra's driving around here anyways,,,,I've seen only a few and most of the people are middle aged,,,I saw one kid maybe 16-18 years old...


Here's a little story obut that kid you might chuckle about I did,,,,,He was rolling down the street in his GXE with 2 girls in the car,,and he was in one of those macking poses (you know when they have their faces pressed against the window)and i rolled up behind him banging my stereo so he notices me behind him,,,so he's looking looking and i slam the gas and pull up on the side of him and slow down,,,now they are starring like WOW that's sweet so I gave him a little knod of my head and he returned one as well and i gassed it again to get right in front of him so he could see the www.sentra.net sticker and the Stromung of course and I gunned it and took off......

My girl said I was acting like a jerk does anyone agree?????

I guess I will be the only one here then completely stock. The only thing I'm planning on changing is getting better tires :) Other than that I love my car and don't want to change anything else on it!

SS, I don't think you are being a jerk. Yesterday I saw a B14 sentra GXE and this dude driving it thought he was all that. He had his parking lights and aftermarket fogs on and it looked really gay. As far as I could tell he didn't have any mods. Well he kept trying to speed up ,so I did what you did. I pulled up next to him going about 85 looked at him ,laughed and took off. It was so much fun lol

Naa man, my girl would have said the same thing. Not many modded Sentra's out here that's for sure. :)

Guy drove down the 13 down here with a Heatwave SE with PP, and he gunned it next to me, then I decided to gun it, and we came to a light. I looked at him, and nodded my head and gave him a peace sign, and he smiled. I'm tryin to take over Virginia. :)

I dont think performance parts matter at all. Exterior things kinda bug me. I used to hate seein another exact replica of my car before i modded it. But if you really wanna be different and actually fabricate parts for your car it gets kinda costly.

actually, i think that the most important thing is that WE are different that THEY!

THEY being the rest of the jealous automotive world. when other cars are lacking stock power, we accel! where others lack refinement, we accel! where other lack support from the aftermarket, we accel! where others lack the stares and oohhs and aahhs that we get daily in our little SENTRAs, we accel!

it shouldnt bother anyone that somone else on this board has the same or similar mods as they do, or the same as YOU DO!! it should be seen as the upmost honorable thing to do, to follow the leader. BE LIKE MIKE! we wish to be like those above us and those above us should feel honored that we wanna be like them. take for instance, SENTRA STYLING, i wanna get a Stillen front end like he did. but will he feel jaded cuz im getten the same front end? naw man, he would most likely feel happy for me. glad that he was able to make that kind of positive impression.

if i hadnt discovered this board when i had my 98 Sentra GXE, i probably would have had dreams of making it a friggin rice-burning party-favor-blower-soundin P.O.S.

and dont it feel real damn good to be parked at the lights next to a modded "H" car and the cutie in that ride is checkin out your ride?

feels awefully nice, uh huh. yup it does.

thats just my two cents.
:)

Please visit my site
OH, i ride in a 2001 SE, color = Jaded, has the Super-Sized Performance-Package, 5 gears, why don't i have a gascap holder? plus its got 16 inch 6 spoke alloy wheels by O.E.M., and a small rubber Radio Shack issued antennae.
in da future i wanna a PR CAI, Stillen front-end, and a nice sexy exhaust note.
Here's my baby

see its not that everybody has the same mods its just that us people who are obsessed with our car come to this site. if all b15 owners came to this site then anybody with a few bolt ons would seem like a god. and btw, i call hawaii! i honestly believe that i have the fastest b15 in hawaii. and if you see anybody on the road with the same mods, act like they idolize your car so much that they wanted to imitate. like all you guys with the stromung exhaust, i am one of your groupies, im gonna have to buy one myself to keep up with the new trends. :)

I have Michigan. I rarely see another b15 around and if I do its usually an old lady in a GXE. There is one Black Se w/ PP in my town though and it really sucks, thats why I started modding mine so soon lol.

I saw one black SE w/ PP in Cincinnati, and a Red SE w/ PP here in Columbus once - it had out of state plates though. I also saw an SE, but didn't have PP.

Since the B15's have been out, those are the _ONLY 2_ SE w/ PP's that I have seen on the road.

There are _alot_ of the early to mid 90 Sentras around here though.
