The CVT's are neat. All the Nissans are upgrading to the CVT transmission including the Sentra. It has it's perks and disadvantages too. Make sure to give it that 1,000 mile break in and the 500 brakes break in period. Some people like make the first oil change at a thousand miles, but I say screw it. Go with the 3,000 or 5,000 mile oil change.

As for the 9mpg readout, maybe you need to take the time to drive it around more. Freeway driving will definitely increase it big time. Mine is at 30.2mpg now.

Tint is top priority!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought about vinyls for my car (redding the taillights) but after years go by, it's going to look fugly, so I'm dropping the project on that.

I must have an exhaust system though. You planning to put in one soon? It won't and it shouldn't void your warranty.

nah, don't think I'm going to get exhaust..Maybe mufflers that look like the stock ones, but thats about it, no fully system..Some remus muffler, heard they're good with the maximas..

1. 20% tint all around
2. Spoiler
3.Smoked Tails
4. Rims
5. Grill maybe..

Gott save up, 4 is expensive ahah..tints and smoke tails is easy..

I've got my windows tinted already. I'm redding out the taillights as soon as I can get some damn vinyls. I want to see your smoke look. I'll go for the red. We got nearly the same color. What's yours? Pure black? Mine is like a smokey mica color (dark grey, in simple terms). Of course, the exhaust is going in after that. Damn, have you heard the IS250 HKS exhaust???? Intake, I don't know. I hear the IS250 owners complain about losing low end power with the intake/exhaust combo. So no intake for me, just a drop TRD or K&N filter.



Man, that's what mine will sound like too.
Man get a WRX exhaust... or an EVO exhaust
