Well, unfortunately I ran over a nail yesterday so I had to change into a spare today. Going to get fixed tomorrow at Discount Tire.

Gave her her first ever car wash (exterior only). This was the first and only car wash the car has ever received except for the one at the dealer before taking delivery. Boy did it need it. Past few days the versa had been on dirt roads.


205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank

FIRST WASH EVER??????????

I plan to clean mine on Thursday, and hopefully wax it, that way I can install the bumper protector too!

Yup first ever. I bought the car in April with only 15 miles on it. So it hasn't been washed in 4 months. In my defense we had a record of days with rain this year so the opportunity wasn't always there to wash. She is looking pretty good. Except the stupid water spots.

Did you use a shamois to dry it? I use one to dry mine, and there are never any water spots left. However, you have a darker colour too so that shows the water easily.

Yup I dried it with a shammy. I couldn't get it completely dry though. The water just kept beading into tiny little balls. I really needed a second sham. I think I would have been fine. The joy of owning a black car. I wish they made the 1.6 in your color ILMV because I would have bought one. Plus I think it would have looked great that read with all black accents.

Yes I love the red because it is BRIGHT! I like it too with black accents. That is why I am not really adding any chrome on the outside. I like the fact that the top of our doors in between the windows are black. Some of the newer sedans have the same colour as the body of the car. I don't like it like that because then when you tint the windows it sticks out like a sore thumb. I like it all black!

thats a huge rim :P and wth 4 months to clean your car get some driwash from dave and atleast wipe down those dirt that turned into mud every time it rains :P after you wash your car you better clay it and put a good coat of wax so it would protect your paint till you wash your car again ^_^v
