Default New Ride

I traded in the Audi. Too expensive to keep putting money into.

2008 nissan altima coupe 3.5 SE

VQ35DE — 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6
Horsepower — 270 hp @ 6,000 rpm
Torque — 258 lb-ft @ 4,400 rpm
6-speed close-ratio manual transmission with dual-mass flywheel
Sport-tuned suspension — retuned front struts and thicker front (24.2 mm) stabilizer bar
Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition
Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver
Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC)
Vehicle speed-sensitive variable intermittent flat blade windshield wipers
Auto-dimming inside rearview mirror with compass
8-way power adjustable driver's seat
Digital Bose® audio system with AM/FM/in-dash 6-CD changer, 9 speakers
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)


Its pretty dirty, but its way to cold out to clean it.

Nothing in honda's lineup can compare to it right now...

s2000 has no back seat at all and a small trunk which would be totally impractical. plus its only 237 hp.

rsx-s would be comparable but again is only 210 hp vs 270 hp altima
...and the price was right on it and it is too rare to pass up. The 3.5 altima coupe with a 6 spd is hard to come by. especially one with the premium package with everything but navigation (which i didn't want)

congrats. the car looks nice. and a 6 speed? didnt know those had that. remember when i said i raced a g35 infinite but wasnt sure if thats what it was, they both look the same. maybe we can keep up with each other??? sounds crazy though for a k20 swapped civic with only 200 hp though to keep up with that.

I want to keep it simple with this car. Intake, exhuast, eibach pro kit, add the factory ipod connection and a subwoofer, window tint, rip off the horrid pin stripe, debadge the rear, and add a new front grille.

EXTRA NICE RIDE!!
EXTRA NICE MOD PLANS!
But wont the performance mod's fault the warranty?
I ask cuz a co-worker got a 08 lancer, say's he can't do any performance mods cuz a the warranty
Or a "certified nissan" mechanic have to put em in as to not void the warranty?
