Ok, I'm thinking the 88 Sentra Hatchback must be a pretty rare car, because I've had mine for 2 years now, and I've only seen 3 other se hatchbacks. I've seen a couple more XE models. Is the difference between the se and xe models that mine (SE) is an automatic? Anybody know production numbers?

well its not rare as u may think... around here ive seen maybe 10 to 15 Sport coupe ... if your talking about the 4 door hatch, well then youre right... theyrent like to be much of them still on the road...

Only difference ive seen between the Xe and Se, (sport coupe) is the trim inside... well its only difference i saw was the tissu they covered the seat with... different motif.. maybe theres other trim difference like guage or radio... and that about it... i dont think they were really diffence...

On my Xe, i got the radio w cassette deck in console and factory sunroof, tach tilt steering (wixh ithink every one got) and that most of it...

:)

I've have yet to find a b12 in a california junk yard... dont really know why.
That is wickedly hard to believe:( Man we have massive B12 graves here and that's how I'm able to experiment with different car's parts. And most of the B12's have nothing wrong with them! I guess everyone just prefer to buy new cars and that works for me. keeps my money on my stocks and my B12's running without parts drama. I can't believe you said that "Hybrid"! Not one? Amazing................

My local yard has about 10-15 B12s and N11s. Tonnes of parts to choose from, except for body panels. Most of those have already melted :mad:

Hybrid, which Junk Yards do you frequent? I have an answer to that...its because I see quite a few B12s on the road. Either being driven by young kids whose parents refused to buy them a Bimmer :p or the hispanic community, which seem to really like Nissans. I swear, It looks as if the B12s will run forever!

It's because they build Sentras in Mexico. When I was in Cancun a whole lotta years ago all the taxis were B12s. I guess they have a reputation for reliability there.

-Nick
When I was there ten years ago the taxis were B12s. They still sell NEW B13s though. It's called the Tsuru

Mines rusting :(
Atleast you don't live in an area where they salt the roads for 5 months of the year. I have to constantly chase after the rust with a grinder in one hand and a can of paint in the other.

SE what could be different?

Alot! To start. . . The SE B12 have a different gear ratio tranny, more for performance, same motor though. Some of the U.S. SE had driving lights not to be confused with daytime running lights which an even rarer few B12 & J11 Nissans had. My J11 had them though, not my B12. The SE has a cassette and a separate tuner, the cassette sits in the open box in front ot the shifter for all you you to get an idea of locale. The SE B12 has front & rear factory sway bars, other models only have a rear. SE like GXE has a tachometer. SE also offers trunk/fuel door release lever, high-low-intermittent-&-timer function on the wipers. SE offered a slightly more powerful ignition coil. SE offered low washer light, low fuel light, & door ajar light in addition to the other ones. SE offered a day/night rear veiw mirror others just had a day mirror. SE & GXE offered inside adjustable rear veiw mirrors others had to be adjusted from outside some did not have a passenger side mirror at all? SE offered 14" aluminum wheels GXE offered 13". SE offered a locking glove box optional on GXE others did not. SE offered a full black interior with race inspired seats similar to those offered in the B13 SE-R and B15 SE-R Spec-V with the hole in the head rest, these seats also set slightly lower to the floor. SE offered a 4 prong steering wheel. Both SE and GXE offered a adjustable steering wheel column. Just like the black cloth SE offered a unique checkerboard headliner material with matching sunvisors. Pop up sunroof was standard on B12 hatchback SE's optional on 2-door SE's with trunk. Nissan O.E. hatchback Sentra SE wing in still in production, but was a dealer add-on option. Nissan O.E. trunk Sentra SE rear wing sold as a add-on dealer option however was discontinued in 1996. The N12 wing was closed in 1999. The B12 w/trunk rear Nissan wing resembled that found on a J11 SE. J11's were painted, the B12's were only black painting it was optional. The hatchback B12 SE Nissan factory rear wing should be about/around $150.00 black only you paint it. No hate guys I know Nissans & I know SE's even without the trunk letters, I can still smell an SE 100 miles away. :mad:
Props Shout Outs Mad Love: Sentra Stud & Boost_Boy & My B12, J11, J30, B15 & A33 all stickz all silver 1 too door :) and my Boo's big 2001 Paff SE (auto) it's a FEM thing. I have not forgotten about the CD guys, you should see some of the Skyline pictures I have SH#T. Last SE offered a four speaker stereo, GXE offered a 2 in front with (2) 2-ways in the back. 1989-90 SE hatchbacks offered a 3-point adjustable head rest which was nice too! In closing, SE, like GXE also sports a covered storage box (the thing under your right elbow that you put your drinks in E, XE, & GT owners) it has a cover/lid that opens & closes. Though rare and many Nissan dealers will deny there WAS A 1988 B12 Sentra GT!

Ess See

You don't want to meSE with me:mad: SE is my life Datsun started the insanity let no man put asunder. :mad: I hate to use the mad face, but, this is SErious! S:mad: E
Did I mention SE's are a fad where I live too. Hard to find and nobody sells them. A man will sooner let a SE rot on the drive way before he sells it to some punk just for the punk to crash it. I got MAD love for punkZ to so do NOT misinterpret it!
87 SE
