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.

and don't forget the most popular "hooked up" import is a civic and most of them are powered by d16's and our car modded out vs a civic with the same mods on a d16 we would smoke that ass.
uh, del sol and civic are 2 different cars. the del sol is actually closer to a crx. and its a si. i was talking about your every day dime a dozen civic dx/ex i think lx too and i wasn't talking about stock, i was talking about a sentra with mods vs. a civic with the same mods. check kojimas garage, a sentra with all the bolt ons and arggh 15's is dead even with a lightly modded si since it responds so well to bolt-ons vs a civic. I still rather have a civic than this sentra though
I ment arggh because i hate the looks of rims that small on anything other than a lowrider, i rather have big rims for street use and have some 15's for racing.

and like i said i ment modified. as in NOT STOCK!! i know a civic is faster stock, but with the same mods a sentra is faster because the engine responds better. this the last time i'm going to say it. check out, go to ko the engine thing if you want proof.
yeah of course a sr20 series would be better. IMO this is the best 4 cylinder you can get. If i had the bank i would do a SR swap but for the price i could just buy a better car.
it would be sick to put a turbo charged H22A in a del sol. I checked out somewhere that some people even put mid-engine b18's in del sols. If i had enough money i would just mod the sentra for looks with intake exaust headers to make it more equip to turn the big ass rollers i'm going to put on it, and get a 91 crx, drop in a turbocharged H22A in it, put on a 16 piece black widow 2 body kit on it (make those little things look like a pocket rocket and you can only tell by the heads/taillights that it is 11 year or more old car and use it as my go-fast car.
