A big wassup to all! This is Gerson, coming to you live from Torrance, Los Angeles, CA; home of Lakers, essays and clinics that stock up "this s*** right here?".

My wife and I just bought a new 2012 Versa S Hatchback in Fresh Powder just this past Saturday. I signed up here a couple of hours after. :thumb2: After tons of research we found this car would suit our needs best. We reluctantly traded in our beloved 2007 Toyota Vitz for it because we needed something more family-oriented. No kids yet, but I wanna have a car ready for just in case. :ihih:

I've been going through just about the whole forum, looking up DIY's, available suspension and engine components, extreior modifications, OEM JDM and USDM parts and all kinds of stuff. I didn't get a chance to modify the Vitz but I will this one and as it's my first time trying to modify a Japanese car, it'll take some getting used to. My other car, and my personal project, is a 1987 Chevy Beretta GT, so having this much aftermarket support is a bit foreign to me. lol :smilielol5:

Definetly will be getting some lows, most likely some Tokico Blues on Tein Springs. I do want to keep some ride comfort, as my wife will be driving it quite a bit.

Wheels. Not sure which yet. I'm going to be looking around the site for pics to see what style of wheels I like best with the somewhat sharp design of this car. Most likely, they'll be 16's or 17's. The wheel well is too big for anything smaller.

I can't make up my mind between a DC Sports or Tanabe Exhaust. I really like how this motor sounds with both of them...

Body, I may be keeping it stock with an OEM spoiler.

I do want to add Cruise Control to it and Keyless Entry. I've seen the DIY's here on how to do that already.

No pics yet. I'll be posting some later once I take some.

Any suggestions on parts or anything else, let me know. I'm a complete noob on this car but I love to learn about it. Hell, I'd start taking the engine apart if my wife would allow me. :p



Here are the pics that were promised, I actually just finished taking them about an hour ago. I'm not used to taking pictures at night so they may not be the best and I was practicing some lighting techniques with my flash. All of them are 30 second exposures at f/8 at 200 ISO on a tripod with a 10-22mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens, for those who know what I'm talking about.

Of course it would not be typical Wanako style if it weren't "in your face!!" :D










I reposted here as it appears to be the proper section to post. There seems to be more traffic so I thought the other place I posted was wrong.

Thanks to those who have already welcomed me.

Welcome aboard!

Micro Image or Versaspeed are both reputable individuals to buy from! Great people to communicate with! Bob (Versaspeed) knows a lot about our Versas, so he's a great guy to ask questions!

Post up pics when you can :D

Excellent! I'm glad to hear that.

I'm used to working on more primitive cars so I'm excited to get working on this one.

Pictures will definitely come. I haven't done an automotive photoshoot for quite a while, so I need to brush up a bit.

Yeah, Garm I know of. He's local to me. Cool dude. I've barely had this car only for two days and I'm getting a nasty itch to take it apart and start working! :D

It should be dark already when I get home. Perfect time for photos. :D

Bob is located in Cali too! I met up with him and some of the Cali Versa crew last year when I was there!
I find irritatingly hilarious that the state with the most absurd, anti-performance laws (C.A.R.B.) in the known universe, has just about all of the manufacturers and sellers of vehicular performance parts. :smilielol5:

LOL!

Well the AEM Cold air intake will be okay with your CARB law. Bob told me this ... don't have to worry about that here, but he did mention it for you guys!
