Yellow Sentra!
#1300955 - 08/15/06 04:21 PM

So I finally took ownership (well, has a lien, but whatever) of my new 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V today.

Thing is super easy to drive compared to my SVT (which is kinda rough around the edges if ya know what I mean). It hauls ass too, just slightly slower than my SVT thru 1st and 2nd. That (and the mega torque steer... note it has a Torsen) is probly due to the 175hp and 180lb/ft of torque! I can just imagine what an SRT-4 is like to drive!

This is planned to be my daily driver so I can park the SVT.

Here are some pictures. I'll get it cleaned up in a bit and get some more pictures of it later.

I think it looks ok from the front:

Rear end, kinda ugly IMO:

I need to vacuum it!

Hardest-to-read gauges EVER! I might actually buy the EL set off Ebay just so I can read the damn thing in sunlight!

300W RF factory setup:

The 8" sub makes this a pretty damn good sounding factory setup:

And if ya wanna hear the exhaust, check this out:

Sounds pretty tame.

BTW, I'm NOT getting rid of the SVT anytime soon!

Congrats! I like the black on yellow. I agree with you on the rear end of the Sentras. Dowdy and goofy looking. Always have been. Have fun with it!

I like it. I'd be scared of the worn out hazard button though. The seats and engine bay need a good cleaning too. Looks like the front badge is missing or it has been debadged.

I agree oon the gausges, a fact made much worse by the really good, easy to read gauges in the regular Sentra.

Nice car, one I considered heavily before buying my SVT. But I wanted ABS, and for some reason, ABS was packaged with the sunroof in Canada. And I couldn't fit comfortably if it had a sunroof.

I like how the Numbers on the guages go over 90 degrees so its harder to read..

Nice pick-up!

Is the audio equip stock? sorry I didn't see the pics (56k modem here--to hell if I'm going to wait that long for the pics to load!) I was pretty impressed w/my friend's stock audio equip in his Xterra. I think it was something like 500W. Not too shabby from the oem. Does Nissan usually go big w/th their audio?

Yep, I have seen Sentras' gauge clusters; absolutely ridiculous.

Didn't need to see the pics to know, he said "pretty damn good sounding factory setup"

A lot of SE-R's come with that premium audio, if not all if I'm not mistaken.
