2006 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I have had my Spec V for 6 months. The only time I have had it in the garage was for Oil changes which I gladly perform myself. It is very reliable, I even learned to drive stick with this car and it does not seem to give. My only Mod is a NISMO Cold-Air Intake. It was definatly worth $230. The CAI does also improve gas mileage about 5-10%. The engine is so much louder after I put it on and pushed the gas to the floor. It certainly has more punch. I plan on getting at least exhaust headers and a Cat-back system.
Performance! Somewhat practical with four doors. My insurance is still insane, lucky for me, my agent doesn't have to ride along, cause it would probably be more. Suspension, gearbox, sound of stock exhaust, even base audio system are all great.
Lower NISMO prices, dealerships still want about $700 for cat-back. I'm just like yeah, right! Better warranty would be nice.
