Sure, it contains fog lights, side sill extensions, front and rear lower spoilers, and a rear roof spoiler.
Invoice price is $700 for the package, I'm not sure what the list price MSRP is.
It is pretty much a body kit, imagine if you will the difference between the base Fit and the Fit Sport.
#1232 of 1273 Versa Factory Alarm
Sep 28, 2007 (9:23 am)
Can anyone give me details about the pre-installed alarm system on the Versa? Is it factory installed or dealer installed?
Also, on the sedan, if you lock the doors with the key fob and then open the trunk with the key, does the alarm go off?
If you are inside the sedan and lock the doors with the key fob, can you pop the trunk from the release button?
Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I have a 2007 versa sedan with the ikey
1. It is factory installed. It pre-arms itself 30 seconds after you turn off the car and after 30 more seconds of the doors not being opened it turns on.
2. The alarm is basicaly geared to go off if for some reason the car door is opened with out a key(or request swicth if using the ikey). Any key use will turn the alarm off.
In addition the car has a imoblizer which means that the only keys that can turn the car on are the ones registired to the car. This means that replacing your key is expensive but it also means that the car is more difficult to steal by hot wiring or just coping the key at a hardware store. If you copy the key you can get in but you can't start the car.
Another intresting thing is the ikey. In theory someone could steal the car if you were next the car and have the ikey but they would be unable to start it again without the key once they turned it off.
Another nice feature of the ikey is it makes it almost impossible to lock your keys in the car. There are some locations in the the cabin wither the system can not sense the key(like the glove box, on top of the dashboard and ont op of the shelf area in the rear) but if the ikey battery is working and the key is left in the car the doors will unlock if you try to lock them from the outside and the car will make a beeping sound.
3. You can not pop the trunk on the sedan at all!(Well barring being traped inside and using the emergancy unlacth). This is the only car I have ever driven where you can not open the trunk from either the key fob or inside the car. You can unlock the trunk from the key fob and infact you unlock the trunk by every time you open the driver side door but the trunk will not pop untill you press the trunk lid release.
Despite thoose flaws the ikey is a great thing. It is great being able to open the door and drive off without having to get the key out your pocket.
#1234 of 1273 Pre-Wired for XM ???
Oct 30, 2007 (3:13 pm)
I just purchased a 2008 Vera HB SL with Convinience package, ABS, and would like to know if the radio that comes with it (6 CD Changes 6 speakers ETC) is pre-wired for xm?? The dealer wanted to much money to install it and I figured I could purchase the xm receiver and install it my self. I understand it is pretty much plug n play (except for the subscription of course). Thanks in advance..

Has there been any recalls or defects found in the 2012 model?
#1238 of 1273 Yea's and Nay's of Versa
Sep 20, 2007 (9:00 am)
I've had my Versa SL HB for almost three weeks now. I absolutely love the car, however, like anything, there are yea's and nay's about it. Here are mine. What are yours?
Yea - I'm short so the adjustable driver's seat is a GREAT feature. Also had it in my Focus and knew I wanted it in my new car.
Nay - Having the driver's seat cranked all the way up, the armrest is now totally useless. My right arm kind of just dangles there and has a lot of trouble being comfortable. Why don't they consider this and make the armrest adjustable too??? It was this way in my Focus also but not anywhere near as bad.
Yea - Seats are very comfortable and I like the cloth material.
Nay - NO lumbar support whatsoever. (Same was true for my Focus). Will require small pillow or similar for long trips.
Yea - Rear seats fold down for added cargo area.
Nay - They don't fold FLAT. WHY?????
(No Yea for this one)
Nay - I think water/dew must pool on the rear bumper top because I'm seeing tiny (and I do mean tiny) specks that may be rust trying to form. Being only surface rust at this early stage, I can take care of it with some rubbing compound but I'd also like to seal it real well. Any suggestions? They should have installed a rubber piece there like other hatchbacks I've seen.
That's it for now. As more time passes with ownership, I may be back.
If you have any comments on the above or have your own yea's and nay's, please post!
