Just seeing how many people here have Altima SE-R's... kindly list color...

I picked up my black 6-speed about 2 weeks ago.
Considered the smoke one, but I might pick that one up as well.

Right now I have a black one with black and grey interior...

I like the car a lot as both a car just to drive and a car to mod a bit...

I'm actually thinking of trying to get a smoke one to mod a bit... probably with grey interior as well.

Have you seen the silver one? The darker tail lights make the back end a little odd... probably the one color I don't like on it.

If you actually sell Nissans then you should know that Code Red is not an Altima SE-R only color. Code Red is available on the Sentra 1.8S, SE-R, and Spec-V. Also, Red Alert on the Titan shares the same paint code as Code Red, A20.

i take it he ment only available on se-r model of the altima.

Anyone know any inside info on what Nismo will be releasing for it?

In the catalogue they give you, they have sway bars, shock and spring kit, wheels, and shifters available, but they have yet to update the site online...

Actually, they did update the site and add on things for the 02-04 altima, but for some reason they deleted it about 2 days ago. Still no links for 05 Altima though... any thoughts as to how long before the start putting more out?

I'm just curious if you have dyno figures that show that the Nismo intake for the Altima 3.5 isn't worth it?

Stillen does offer a wide variety of intakes. AEM's definitely makes good power. Check our first articles on project Altima 3.5 SE

http://www.nissanperformancemag.com/august02/projectaltima/

I'm also wondering if you've driven an Altima with the NISMO suspension? It has stiffer spring rates and dampening over the SE-R suspension and it has an ASD valve in it to keep the ride nice over bumps. Coupled with the stiffer bushings, direct steering and reinforced rear K frame that the Altima SE-R has over the other Altima's the car should shine even more with the NISMO suspension.

I own a SER. Black with the gray interior

I purchase my SE-R a few weeks ago and love it. I have had some fun with friends of mine that have been in the street race scene for awhile and have been spanking them in the SE-R. Just to name a few wins, It beats a Type-R integra, Fully Modded 1.8t GTI, 05 Maximas, G35s, and a few others. This car is worth more press im kind of amazed the import magz haven't picked up on it yet!!! :)

2005 Altima SE-R Silver w/Blk & Red interior. Man, this car blew my mind when I took it for a test drive and I could not stop from getting it. I tried, but it's too sweet of a ride to pass up. Nissan ROCKS! I bought it on the last day of January. This morning kind of ticked me off though. When I started driving down the road the air bag indicator started blinking. So, we'll see what the mechs have to say about it.

I purchased my SE-R December 31st in Lafayette, IN.

I bought the 6-speed manual Smoke w/ Charcoal and grey interior.

I will be posting pics as soon as I get back to the states as I was forced to leave my SE-R in the states to come back to the desert for work.

I miss her greatly :(

Just for a laugh I'll tell you about my wife getting pulled over in Tennesse the day after I bought the car. Needless to say, she is no longer of fan of my new baby.

To Buy or Not to Buy?

I am seriously considering picking up a 2005 Altima SE-R. I have read all the posting on this board and must say that it is definatly leaning me towards this car.

I am curious to know all the good and bad things you have to say about this car. I have test driven it twice and loved it both times. But before I drop $37000 CAD I would like to know what other owners of the SE-R think both good and bad!

Thanks

Good Vs Bad on the SE-R

To be completely honest with you I can't pick out a real bad thing about it. If your not used to some torque stearing that might be bad to you but the car is awesome, I have been able to smack alot of people out there. I have taken new and old mustang gts my friends s2000, gti's, type R integras, g35's sedans and Coupes and much more. Its a blast to drive and I def. recommend it. :)

SOunds Convincing

Wow! Sounds like this is the one. Have you done any upgrades/mods to it? I have been looking for various performance parts for this car and have not seen much, I am assuming that this is just becasue it is new.

I am curious as to what cars that are on the market now would you feel are in the same class as the SE-R. I have looked around and nothing really seems to compare $ for $. Am I missing any?

This is our first front wheel drive car and the torque steer takes some getting used to. I don't like the wheels other then that i can't say anything bad.We got a code red 6 speed w/o t.c. for 28,810.00 i don't know if you could spend 37,000 on one.

The red is hot and the cops like it too.
Good luck Walter

I would agree with Walter on all aspects other than the wheels. Although I have seen some wheels I would like to have on my SE R, I am quite happy with the current ones (that and the wife won't let me get new ones yet anyways). If I remember correctly, when putting my Smoke color next to the Code Red, I did like the wheels better on mine though.

The torque steer did take a little getting used to, and it still surprises me now and again. All-in-all, I'd have to say that I love my new Altima and am very happy with my purchase.

Sorry, Web, forgot to answer your questions.

As for what cars are similar to this car, I can only tell you the cars I was looking at when I bought this one. I had almost decided on an Acura TL when I walked into the airport parking lot and saw six of them on my way into the airport (I have yet to see another Altima SE R on the road). I was also looking at the G35 sedan and the Maxima. I drove an Altima 3.5SL and really liked it until my buddy put me into the SE R. I fell in love and signed the paperwork right then.

As for mods and what not, I've been looking into that myself. What I've found after reading around forums and looking at JWT, it seems that this engine has been out for a while and most current 3rd party mods will also work with the VQ35DE that is in the SE R. For those of you more mechanically inclined than myself, is this true?

Decision Made!

Thanks for the reponses, I appricate your feedback. Well the decision has been made and this weekend I will be heading down to the dealership to order her.

After much back and forth between Black or Smoke, I must say the Smoke has won me over. I'm sure it will take some time to get my hands on it, but I will post back with some pic once I get it.

Thanks Again

I'd post a picture of my Smoke colored SE R, but alas it is in South Carolina and I am in the Middle East. Oh how I miss my car. I've never seen smoke side by side with another SE R, but I put it up to a black SE and I like the Smoke a lot better.

Congratz in advance on your new Altima SE R, I"m sure you will enjoy it.

(I had to dealer trade for my smoke, but they seem to have shipped a lot of them out)
