VersaMG08 They break down their new members and mold them into other NICO clones, it's an endless cycle. If you don't obey, either blend in or get recycled.

Yes tinted windows are a must. I felt like I was inside of a fishbowl before!

Lol, what a funny way to think about it....poor goldfish, at least we can get out of our cars.

But yes, I know what you mean...and especially being lower than a lot of other vehicles on the road, I feel like everyone can see into my car and like it was too vulnerable. I don't like people that stare at you on the road while everyone is in stopped traffic and act like they've never seen another human before.

Tint is a must, whether it's just the legal limit or pretty much limo tint. You should do it! It's worth the price for the privacy lol

Yes after being followed to work in my first car and threatened by the driver behind me, I got tint right away in the Versa. Some people are so creepy. It's disgusting.

Wow...that's extreme. And quite ridiculous for someone to do actually. Why did the other driver do that to you?

Okay, just to try and clear up some questions posted and emails I’ve received and keep this thread on topic I’ll try to take care of all concerns and questions.

This system will be based on the same proven system that has been used in Mazda’s and Honda’s for over the past five years...on displacements ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 liters without causing any failures of the following....engine/transmission (Manual/clutch assy/CVT/Auto) or to differential gears and last but not least motor mounts. And I’m sure Nissan is as good if not better then Mazda or Honda.

“This supercharger setup combines the throttle response of the Roots supercharger with the compressor efficiency of a turbo, but without the lag. And the Rotrex does this without noise, without oil lines connected to the engine, and without the heat common in turbo applications”. The Rotrex is a more modern system with less plumbing and heat issues that turbo’s have to contend with. The reason behind choosing this system and Oscar a genus when it comes to supercharging setups.

As for gas millage....if you drive the car normally.....it will be the same as you get now only when you get on it will it suffer.....but that’s true without any mods.

Cost for the system will be in line with those for Mazda and Honda...in the three thousand dollar range but long term it will be a simple and reliable but effective setup and not changing the basic Versa/Cube ideals of good fuel economy and plenty of interior room it’s just now you’ve given it some BA%#S the factory failed to address!

My philosophy is simple for anything I plan for our cars....quality, reliability and things that just really work that will make the cars more fun to drive yet still can be used as “grocery getter/kid transport” if so desired!

Well, I hope I’ve covered everything.....

Just a side note to those that are asking about a "Short Shift Kit"....I read this article about the Juke in auto blog and this is what they had to say bout the Juke's manual transmission which I believe is the same as our cars.

"A six-speed manual gearbox with surprisingly short throws is available in front-wheel drive models".

Here is the link: http://www.autoblog.com/2010/08/26/2...iew-road-test/

Enjoy!

Hey Ashley! I have no idea...everyone I know at Nissan is on vacation so for all I know it's sitting on the dock in Long Beach waiting to be sent to Nissan then they'll ship it to me!!!! As soon as I get it I'll test fit it and if everything is okay off to the body shop for paint then on the car and pictures.

Have a great weekend.
