I test drove a Sentra. The visibility was very good except for the fact that I almost got into an accident backing up at an angle b/c the back window is narrow and steeply sloped but this seems to be a design chracteristic of all small cars now.

I would like to know general comments pro and con about this vehicle, and in particular, what type of fuel it runs on. I have received conflicting reports alternating between it running fine on regular unleaded and it requiring premium unleaded. Thanks...
#59 of 65 SE-R vs. Spec-V Suspension Questions
Nov 30, 2007 (10:24 pm)
I just got my SE-R in blue and am enjoying it. I'm wondering if someone who has driven both this and the Spec-V can compare the ride qualities. The only thing I don't care for in the SE-R is a bit of fore-aft and up-down bucking and bouncing over freeway joints, etc. that make it feel unsettled on certain roads. Wondering if lowering would help that, or if it induces more harshness, which I wouldn't want. I am more interested in preserving a fairly supple but "planted" feel in ride comfort, than increasing handling at the limits. Also wondering if the extra front and rear Spec-V bracing is worth adding and easy to do. Thanks in advance for comments on these or any other recommended mods.

I was a bit disappointed with the Spec V when I first got it, because I thought that the engine was a bit rough. However, this car has gotten a lot better with some miles. I have about 10,000 miles now, and it is noticeably better now that things have settled in.
I put a Magnaflow highflow resonator and catback exhaust, and a K&N cold air intake on the car. This gave a bit more power, but I was still disappointed with the rough engine. I found that JETCHIPS had a performance upgrade for the Spec V ECM so of course I tried it.
It was kind of a pain to have to remove the ECM and mail it to Jet, but it was worth the wait! The Jet Chip turned this into a new car. The engine revs much more quickly and very noticeably smoother now. More power throughout the entire powerband, and a slight increase in mpg if you don't always have your foot in it.
This is the biggest difference in performance that I have ever experienced in any of the cars that I have modified. Granted, none were turbo or supercharged, but all had intakes and exhaust. I would highly recommend this upgrade, and of course it works better with an intake and exhaust. The chip was only $399 and it was worth every penny!

Can anyone help me locate the sunroof glass for my 2003 Nissan Sentra Spec-V? I'm not looking to purchase a new one but one from an individual parting one out or a salvage yard. Any leads are appreciated. email me at reglantzverizon.net Thanks!

I just had my '08 SE-R lowered with the Eibach ProKit, which improved the looks and handling dramatically. Well worth the $500 P&L total paid. The ride is firm but not harsh - no penalty on good roads. Just have to go slower over speed bumps.
