I have the 2003 Sentra/SE-R brochure and it says Nissan has been producing the Sentra since 1984 (wasn't it 1983? anyway).

Looking at the 20th anniversary Max, do you think nissan may produce a 20th anniversary Sentra based on the V-Spec?

I test-drove a very-yellow '03 Spec-V the other day, and I've been dreaming and day-dreaming about it ever since. The torque is intoxicating and they fixed the interior (sorry, I hated the lava interior). My Civic felt like a POS (well... that's what it is) afterwards.

However, seeing how they improved the Spec-V for 2003, what do you think the 04 will be like? Once it comes out, I'll be 25 and the insurance premium will be much lower. Plus I'll have a few debts worked out.

However, seeing how Nissan f***ed up the SE-R in the past (like removing the LSD in 1998), I'm afraid I may pass up on the best Spec-V of the history if I don't get a 2003...

Opinions?

Do I smell honorary(sp) admin status here? Wait no, he seems to still be "on the other side".

Hey everyone, Scott, Michael!

In fact I'm still on the other side of fence, but that WILL change soon. My Civic is up for sale.

I did drive a 2002 Civic LX in my search for a new car (school's over, I'm now an insurance broker!!!) and when I realized it was even slower than the 1995 I currently have (16.95 is my best ET), I quickly changed my mind.

Then I drove past the local Nissan dealer, this yellow Spec-V was sitting on the lot. I thought to myself: "Yellow?". Yep! A brand new 2003 was waiting for a test drive. Now, I want one!!!

So, I may in fact jump the fence ... again! I just have to play around with some numbers and find a new owner for my Civic.

All is left to decide is: buy a 03, or wait for the 04?

I know you don't remember me Yannick, but I remember you! I remember you talking about your band so much and how much you loved your Sentra! ;)

There's not anything really out to make a decision on the '04 Sentra/SE-R/Spec V yet. Time will tell a little more, but by then, you can make a great decision on year end '03 Spec's and you'll see the '04's out too. Either way, I think you'll be alright. Hey, BTW, thanks for contributing to sentra.net back in the day, because if it wasn't for you, Scott, Josh Vereen and a bunch of other sentra heads, I wouldn't be in the scene at all. Good luck on your new purchase, whenever that may be. ;)

I didn't recognize your moniker, but I do remember your name: Marvin.

I still have my band, we've been choosed to represent a local radio station actually. Rock stars need sport cars right? ;)
