Yea i didnt want to put all the pics right in here so i uploaded them to my site, so no one with a slow connection will get all laggy.

1996 Nissan Sentra GXE

Once winter is over im getting Motegi MR-7s, someone told me that the salt used to melt the snow can harm the finish on your wheels, if this isnt tru well mabey ill get them sooner. But we usually get a lot of snow so ill wait if i get no conformation.

After that i plan on getting Ground Control Coilovers and a deck(possibly sooner if my friend sells his old one.

From there i dont know where to go because i definatly think i could use a paint job the lady who had it before me never really took care of it although it only has 20k miles on it and i put about 6k on it there is already signs of ruston the hood on the edge by the wipers. it also looks like she tried to hide some other sopts with some sort of touch up paint that doesnt match... from a distance u really cant tell. But i dont know if i should wait to get a body kit first or to get the paint job first then the body kit and get that painted later and match the color. An help with this decision would be quite usefull. And if it looks like i plan to do alot to this car well because im prolly going to have it for a long time i mean it has less miles on it than my moms new 2k1 camry although her car looks nicer :(

i also was wonderin where i could find one of those aluminum spoilers for my car i know most are universal i was just wonderin whats a decent width for them i dont want my spoiler to be wider than my car that looks stupid plus, ive been looking and all of them are like 12" does anyone know where to get the ones that are like 3-4" high instead.

Performance wise I thought about it but i dont know if i should even put money into it because of the fact that its a automatic, i figured just drive this till its dead then get a new sentra 5 speed or mabey a spec v 6 speed :eek:) yum... but if someone can convince me otherwise plz do...

well thanks ahead of time

and yes i know the washer leds r illegal dont worry i keep them off pretty much all the time i was just bored one day and my friend had bought a pair for his jeep but the didnt go on so i bought them off of him... but yea ive got a toggle switch drilled under the dash.

Where in new york are you from first of all. Secondly definatly the OEM spoiler is the only good looking one for our car, besides the erubini bow style, but the aluminum ones look like you cut up a garbage can and stuck it on IMO. I just got a factory one on the forum (used of course) for 50 dollars. Look around, you'll find something you like. Get the paint job first. You might not want a body kit in the future, they can really put a dent in your pocket. Just paint it a nice color, like skyline blue :D . -James
I'm from Middltown (69 miles north of NYC) but go to school at Plattsburgh State (69 miles south of Montreal)
No, I havent been to them and I was unaware of them. Thanks for the info, is there a site that I can check this out at so I can get directions. I would love to go see some nissans since it feels like everybody is all about honda. Anyway I'll have to check that out, if you can give me more info Thanks. -James
I dont know if thats the factory name of the color, but its the dark electric blue that the skyline can come in. The best color IMO. I have been thinking about painting my car that color, with a black pearl layed over it so it looks black from certain angles. But that is not any time in the near future... Anyway if your going to a junk yard you can swap to a manual tranny for cheap. If you do it yourself. The GA may not be the fastest engine but its whats getting you (and me) around so dont bash it too much. You can always race a geo metro ;) -James
