Hello there,
my name is steffen, i come from germany, and i'm new in this forum.
at first i'm sorry, because my english is not realy good :-(
My car is a 2008 Nissan versa, in german called Nissan Tiida.
I like this car, but in germany it is not very popular, so i can't get good information for tuning this car in german forums. So i come to this Forum.
If you want to see some Pictures, please visit my profile in the biggest german Nissan forum, the Nissanboard.

i had done some mods, if you want some information or more pics, you can ask me.

I also have a question, i hope, you can help me:
i m looking for a new grill for my tiida. In ebay USA i find this one, what do you think:
Chrome Grille Overlay Compatible with 2007 2008 2009 Nissan Versa (S / SL) | eBay

it looks nice, but i don#t now, if the quality is sooo good. What do you think.
The second idea i have, i put on the faceliftgrill. is it plug & play or not?
hope you can help me! :)

As far as i know all first generation hatchback grills (07-12) are fully interchangeable. I personally don't like the look of any chrome on any modern import cars. But to each their own. What kind of grill do you have now? If it is the all black grille i would buy it from you, if you chose to upgrade to a different grill.

The cost effective engine mechanical mods are a catback exhaust system and a header if you want (3 different companys offer a performance exhaust manifold (header)), cold air intake if you choose, but they don't help all that much for the cost. You are better off making your own in fact for the price of new ones.

Uprev is an engine management company offering tuneability on new platforms. As far as i know they have the MR engine PCM "unlocked", and you can buy various packages with the expensive ones offering more functionality and the base ones offering no end user tweaking. UpRev - Engine Management Store

You can buy a package, then go to any Uprev certified dyno in your area and get the car optimized.

If you are serious, has a lightweight flywheel, heavy duty clutch kit, lower final drive, helical LSD, and all the usual exhaust and intake stuff (and more). I got the lightweight flywheel from there and it was well made.

Also, the MR20DE engine from the Nissan Sentra (Sunny in that market?) 07-12 is a bolt in swap, no modifications needed or PCM or harnesses, 20HP and 20 TQ more than stock 1.8, probably more with mods.
