2005 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I am a previous 89 Maxima SE owner (still running with 210K miles son has it) and thought the down grade would make me miss the Maxima. This was not the case, I now have better performance and fuel economy (avg 29.5) and when I purchased it I added two tone black/orange leather. The NISMO cat back and cold air intake were worthy investments the performance increase with these put me now at 95/99 Maxima numbers (184 Hp@ 4k rpm and 195 ft/lbs @ 4K). The leather upgrade gave it a very upscale look to. Thanks to the guys at Maxwell Town North Nissan for making it all happen at a great price.
The 6 speed and Brembo brakes were what sold me, especially after the performance upgrades.
The front grill could use a redress and the arm rests should be a bit softer.The suspension could be firmer but that will be addressed when the NISMO kit is added.
