hi ya'll just want to say i got my maxima today :D the 2002 one.




first thing i noticed on this car is the paint job...it's so sparkly haha second thing is wow it got very good torque compared to the av6...so far i haven't floored it all the way yet so i'm not sure how good the high end is but i like it so far. right now i'm still trying to figure out how to use the memory seats =/

this car compared to my 2000 av6, the maxima interior seem bit cheap...everything feels so plastic...the accord interior feels more nicer but the leather seats on the maxima feels softer and bit more comfy. another thing i don't really like is the rear end...it looks weird haha maybe it'll grow on me but as of now i kinda want to tint it a bit haha. well other than that i love this car but i miss my accord so much too =/ eh i'm just happy i got a car now :D

i don't know if i should do retrofit or not hahah =X

Congrats Kin!!

No retinting won't mess up your auto-dimming mirror. It will actually make your mirror adjust less to the light which is better.

It's a GLE right?

Performance

Base Engine Type: V6 Horsepower: 255 hp
Max Horsepower: 5800 rpm Torque: 246 ft-lbs.

Some pretty nice numbers...:up: All I have to say is welcome to the VQ (torque :D ) family.

Wow, congrats on the new car Kin... Reminds me of the same 02 Maxima SE my neighbor once had in white (until the 18 yr old got his 330Ci). Only his was cloth seats and auto.

Be careful of the paint... It's deceiving. It looks sparkly white now because it's clean. But once it starts to get a little dirty, it has a nasty yellow tint on it when viewed with sunlight.

Yeah i havent really heard any thing good about Nissan paint...Nissan is sorta notorious for having the worst paint quality for any car manufacture in the US..far worse than Honda i've even heard. Make sure you keep it freshly waxed to keep that shine. Also, wipe off any bird droppings daily to avoid paint damage...you'd be surprised how quick bird crap can eat through paint.
