Taking her in for the 2nd oil change @ 7800 miles. Also, the tech will look for the rattle again in the engine, hopefully it will show itself in front of him.

On the other hand, if anyone is ever caught with their Versa down in Central Ohio, these guys are awesome.

Well, had the new springs fitted today, looking forward to testing her out :P

According to my mate, they are an absolute PITA and he hopes to never see one again.

Lucky I just paid the bills and didn't get my hands dirty....I have a short temper when wielding a spanner so who knows :P

I ended up having to paint my wheels on my other car because the brake dust was too hard to clean off. I stripped and painted the wheels.

best bet is searching for 00-06 sentra ones. They share the same lug pattern. Can't be positive they will fit over the calipers though.

Maybe you could spray some Rain-X and Pam on your white rims. It will make the brake dust slide off the wheels easily like greasing up a stripper's pole, they can't stay on!
