Get whichever you like best and one that fits your budget. I'd suggest you get the Altima so you won't have to ask a million more questions. :D

Altima SE-R is always a good starting point :D

What is most important: comfort vs. sport; warranty vs. aftermarket support; style vs. speed; reliability vs. cost; cargospace vs. wheelbase...etc...you know, the basics. It really depends on what you want in a car.

Yea I know what you mean. I'm going to hook the engine up but this is going to be more show car. Sometimes go down to the track and race it I like room lots of it. So I can do lot of inside mods which one has a bigger trunk maxima, altima, or altima se-r?????

I think they are the same but then again what do I know
Sounds right :)
Any car with the VQ35DE is very mod friendly. The Altima SE-R already has a sporty interior to write home about. I'de test drive one of them.

Frankly, I doubt there are many deals to be had on any SE-R, since it's a new and very hot car for Nissan (the shine's already gone off the 300Z and Max).. but go down to the dealer and knock yourself out. :)

I hate to burst your bubble but even if he sells you an SE-R at invoice (which I doubt he would being the car is a limited allocation car) he stills makes a healthy chunk on the back end. I worked in the dealer environment for many years so I know a little about the inner workings. I would say if you save some money off the MSRP you are doing alright.

So if you know about the inner workings you know all dealers don't get the limited cars in. It goes on how fast they can move the cars or if some one ask them to get that car in. Its like the audi rs6 $82,000 450hp family car they only got one in cause they car it self comes with 24 hour towing. Only a few Audi dealers have guys on call 24/7. Anyway I don't want to get him in any heat so I cant tell how he does his thing but know I will get this car for a $ that so people with they can get if for :cheers: . Unless he can get me in a new Audi s4 cause that car is crazy. All wheel drive 4.2l V8 S4 Cabriolet with Tiptronic :thumbup:

I've worked on and rebuilt several Audis and VWs and feel that there really is a point when a car is over-engineered and they are definitely there. Any car which requires the removal of the front of the car to get to the alternator is not my idea of fun. Also I'm not too hip on the fiberglass radiator support which makes for some very expensive minor fender benders. Especially if you go over the front bumper beam which happens alot in a collision with a large SUV. I will say they are nice but no thanks, I'll spend my money on both a Titan SE and a Altima SE-R for a few dollars more since my Z32 is my super fast and super comfortable tourer anyway. Also my Altima is no slouch either... I would definitely consider a new G35 Sport Sedan with 298hp and a six-speed if I was going to spend the 40K on a performance sedan.
I guess I believe in the products that Nissan produces more than others.
