Red_Alert: 2011 Versa SL

So today was a nice day outside, so I thought I would take some pics of my V!

Bought my 2011 Versa SL in August 2010. It was a day after my old 1996 Ford Thunderbird blew the head gasket and bent a rod. Originally went to the Nissan dealership to buy a Titan. I asked "I get a used Titan for under 24k out the door?" The dealership said no right away. I went over to the new cars and found this beauty. This is the picture of when I got home with the V.



The V came with:
SL package
Sunroof
Bluetooth
Navigation

Now 2.5 years and nearly 32 thousand miles later. This is what the V looks like today.





The only modifications I have made to the car was only upgrade the sound system. This was done in September of last year. I replaced the stock speakers with Infinity Kappas (ran by a 4 channel amp) and added a sub. The thing is though. The amp and sub are under the front seats of the car. I ran all new speaker wire also for the install. I loved it that the SL already had tweeters so I could put the kappa tweeters in the same place.

Pictures of stuff and during the install:

Front speakers (components) and rear speakers (three way components):



Tweeter:



Install:







Location of the 4 channel amp and sub (picture taken 5/26/13):










I plan on this summer to make a place for my Kicker sub remote gain control. Also this fall, I plan on adding a CAI and cat back exhaust. Thanks!

Yes I give mine a full detail every spring or summer (with a clay & wax).
Mine's over 5 years old now, and she still shines up beautifully ... that's why I love the red

Ordered an AEM cold air intake today. It's the gun metal gray one. The cost was $196 shipped from autoanything.com!

It was only 12 bucks more than the Takeda short air. I thought that it was a good deal!

The cold air intake finally came today. I'm planning on installing Thursday afternoon. A interesting note: the AEM intake I have was manufactured in June 2013. Nice to see that they make this thing.

Installed the CAI last Thursday. It give a nice look under the hood. Have driven about 100 miles. Oh, it sounds very nice too!

Picture of the final install:

Awesome! I see in your sig you had a K&N drop in filter before, big improvement over it? And what'd you do with the drop in filter? I'm looking for one for cheap!

Enjoy Life.
