Unfortunately had to trade in my beloved Spec-V...but here's this! Brand new '11
Please tell me that's an SR with the 3.5 and a 6-Speed.
Didn't those spec V sentras have some problems? BTW, nice looking altima, sporty looks, though that rear quarter doesn't really do it for me.
Yes, but easily fixed by purchasing an aftermarket header and loctiting the secondary butterfly valve screws.
You're talking about the generation of SE-R before mine.
This was mine.
Oh, you had a newer one. Any particular reason you got rid of it?
It was either pay a boatload to fix the transmission, or trade it with no negative on a zero-percent interest loan on a new Altima.
This seems to be a trend.
I don't like trends.
Ya this seems somewhat familiar. How much was it to fix your trans if you don't mind me asking?
More than I'm willing to pay, considering I was ready to trade it soon anyways.
Well, there is one speeding ticket down.
One down? Do you have some more to go?
What exactly kind of car is this?
Right now trying to decide on a set of wheels for the car...so many possibilities.
You never answered my question before. This a 3.5?
At least its starting to look like an Infiniti
This isn't the 3.5, it's the 2.5 QR25, same engine as my SE-R, and it's actually lighter. For the price of an '11 3.5 premium I'd have opted for the 370z.
True, depending on what you use your cars for. If it's just a daily, I'd opt for the 3.5 Altima Coupe SR with the 6-speed. If I planned on doing track days, then I'd spring for the Z.
I wanted something new, and had a set budget. Couldn't really pass up the deal. We also have a 2004 Civic, so something with two doors was tempting.
Nice car. I do like those. Was it employee pricing when you got it?
Employee pricing started the following week. I did get a 0% interest loan from a special program for making at least 12 consistent payments on another Nissan.
Ahhh dang. 0% isn't too bad a deal either though.
Might I add that Nissan's Super Black is the WORST, hardest to take care of black paint in history? My car looks three years old instead of three months.
Black is not a good color if you live in places where it'll get dirty often.
I would put a good coat of wax on it next time you wash it. That might help. (Clay bar too)
It's not really the dirt that is the issue. It scratches if you bump into it with a soft cloth.
Clay bar and wax.
Yes clay bar. I detail your car regularly for my job as a matter of fact. Wash it first though before the clay bar or it will scratch really bad!
Wash and rinse it then take the clay bar while the car is still wet and just run it over anywhere that feels rough. After that wax it and your good to go. Black isn't bad if you maintain it, it's when it gets neglected it looks bad.
8500 miles since the end of May. I think that's my new record...
Paint woes continue...now my paint is starting to reveal tiny little acidic-looking patches all over the hood, roof, and doors. Taking it in Monday morning to see what's up.
I don't want to scare you but it sounds like clear-coat failure from this post. Please post pictures!
