Default EvilRegal has been replaced (be patient pics will come!)

Sad but happy day for me today....sad because EvilRegal has to go. Gas prices and a slightly slippery trans (and a recently bad fuel pump) has finnally put me over the edge. I enjoyed driving it every day, but it became less than reliable too quickly for my taste, and I was NOT going to pay for another tranny (which I knew it would eventually need with me driving) Now fot the happy, since im now the enemy (a car salesman LOL) I can get cost on all of our pre owned inventory. I have been eyeing this car for about 2 weeks and it hasnt sold for whatever reason!? But I am now the proud owner of a 2002 Nissan Maxima SE with the rare 6 speed heated cloth seats and heated steering wheel auto touch power moonroof combo. This car is 10 times pimper than the Regal was (as the Regal was a base Regal with only the standard options i.e. no roof no heated seats no spolier etc.) Driving impressions are surprising, even though the car is 500 lbs lighter than what i was used to driving the Max still feels just as big on the road, first gear draws HUGE tq steer when yer turning (but only when yer gettin on it) Im still not use to a stick shift daily driver so well see how much better this gets....but other than that it shifts smooth the clutch is buttery smooth and this thing is quiet as a limo (im gonna have to let Stillen take care of that for me) Anyways mods are planned and I will get pics as soon as I can get the chance. BTW Bonne is still for sale so I can start the Chevelle project


(am I the only one in the world who has a Maxima and a Chevelle?......does this make me a wierdo or was I already that way????)

I always loved that generation of Maxima. Not so much the new one, though :(

WOW and here I thought I was gonna get an earfull from the GM faithfull for switchin to Nissan Thanks guys I promise pics very soon, us car salesman work unbelievable hours!!! Yes it is the VQ35DE motor....yes a meridian (cloth seat with heated seats and heated wheel) is very rare on the SE model especially.....and then you add in the rarity of the 6 speed option...hehehe I stole this thing from my dealership too LOL I watched 5 or 6 people test drive it and none bought it, I finally just said I cant stand it anymore im buyin it!!! (Of course the fuel pump/air bag sensor goin out on the Buick helped make the desicion LOL) Today a guy that had driven it the other day came in to buy it, he didnt believe the used car sales manager that the car was as rare as it was, and then got home and did his research to find out it was rare as he** but it was too late HAHA.....remember the car you looked at today someone else looked at yesterday (car salesmen love that line LOL)
