Already posted this in the New Members section but this will be the thread that I update regularly. So don't want anyone getting mad for the double post.

Hello everyone. My name is Randall, 23 years old, married with a 4 year old Boston Terrier dog :) Been lurking the forum for a few weeks. I live in Columbus, OH. I've been waiting for the snow to calm down here so I could take some photos and post a "Hello" thread.

To start off, I bought my 2010 Versa Sedan 1.8 back in March 2012. Bought it used with 34,000 miles on it, one previous owner. I had been trying for a few years to get approved for a car loan and was finally approved. My uncle was good friends with the dealership so I got an amazing deal on this car. I wanted a Versa because back in Jan 2011 I rented one for a road trip and fell in love. Originally wanted a hatchback but when this deal popped up I had to take it. Glad I did, for some reason I don't care much for the hatchbacks now (not that there are any things wrong with them, I like having a trunk).

At first I wasn't really wanting to put money into this car. But I got a new better paying job and realized that I will be paying for this car for the next 6 years so why not enjoy it. Found this forum and started to learn a ton about things that can be done to V's.

This is how she sits now, dirty with stock everything.







Extremely dirty right now, I hate white.

Future Upgrades/Mods:

Head Unit - Kenwood KDC-BT752HD (installed)
Tiida AC Knobs (installed)
Hubcaps (plasti dipped matte black)
Door Speakers
Single 12" Sub with Amp
Window Tint
Lowering Springs
Window Visors
Fog Lights
Middle Armrest (ordered)
Wheels and Tires
Pedals

If anyone has any suggestions or anything I am all ears. I'm hoping to do Sub/Amp, Tint and maybe springs with tax return money. lol. Good to meet everyone.

Weather has been a little crappy the last week or so but I've been able to make a little progress. Installed my Kenwood bluetooth cd player, A/C knobs, dipped my hubcaps, rear license plate cover, and installed the arm rest that came in today. I got her cleaned up but didnt do much good. I hate it being white. Nearly impossible to get clean, almost as if it is stained.








Next in line will be full window tint as soon as I do my taxes and spraying the front grille and all silver areas matte black also.

Those A/C knobs, what color are they? And did you lose out on a cup holder or two by installing that arm rest? By the way, it's looking real good, can't wait to see more.

The sides of the knobs are red. I lost out of 1 cup holder. I only used them for holding random things so no big deal for me. I prefer to use the cup holders under the stereo. And thanks, I'm happy with it so far. It was my first time using plasti dip so the hubcaps didnt turn out as good as I wanted. But unless you are a few inches from them they look fine.

from the looks of it the arm rest is mounted in the front cup holder. I know when mine was in the car it mounted there.

Ah I see. I've got the same a/c knobs but the sides are black. I'm thinking about adding a white strip or something on the dial's face. It's a bit hard to see the notches in daylight without turning on any lights.
