does anyone have any idea what se-r and/or spec v stands for?
i've heard several different rumors, like the V means 5 and it's because it's the 5th generation sentra, and blah blah. i know the spec v was taken from the skyline but what the hell does it stand for?
and for some clarification i believe it's pronounced spec V (vee) not 5, am i right?

Spec V (Pronounced VEE), was just a turnaround from the skyline "V-Spec" which means Victory Specification. Nissan North America wanted to use that on the SE-R, and the big shots over in Japan had a fit and said "NO!" So what did they do? Changed it to Spec V. I don't know about the SE-R though.

I believe it has been determined on the mailing list that SE-R does not stand for anything.
There are all sorts of ideas and stories, but no one has been able to prove any of them.
I would just pick the one you like best and go with that. Kind of like naming your car.
it's kinda like GXE is for the basic edition (or General edition)(still not sure what the X is for), GLE is the Luxary edition and SE is Sport edition. They just added an 'R' to the SE to make it sound sportier, "Racing Edition" or so.
BTW, I dont see to many GLE's out there. What's the difference in the GLE and the GXE B14? besides the gold Nissan emblems.
