Hey, whats the 1997.5 altima? I got a 2nd gen. auto but I'm actually thinking of buying an older gen because I want standard. Anyway, is the 1997.5 like a specal edition altima?

I have a 97.5 GXE, and while it is special to me :D, it isn't special in any other way. It is the very last model of the first generation. There are probably some subtle electrical and mechanical differences between it and the 97.

i have a 97.5 SE 5spd. The only thing different is i have to use an oil filter for a 98. The 97 filter won't fit. I also have leather instead of a sunroof.

Isn't 97.5 the first model with the coil-in-cap distributor?

Ok I was wondering the same thing so I emailed nissan service center. They responded by saying that the Limited Edition 1997.5 Altima has the following : LE floormats, LE side markers(minus the GXE in back),alloy wheels, and remote entry(i forget if the theft system was part of it or not, but I have it on mine).

So to me it sounds like its all in the packaging. Basically it has stardard add ons and is only Limited Edition because they say it is.

P.S.

Do any of the LE 1997.5 come in auto. I have only seen ones with the 5sp?

Yes it is and it causes more pain than necessary when trying to install an MSD ignition.
Or Jacobs - which is one reason I haven't gone thru with it yet.

Well, they only have SE or LE if they ARE an SE or LE. My 97.5 is a GXE and nothing else :( :D

I wonder what LE sidemarkers look like?

I was wrong with my terminology. I meant they have LE badges not side markers.
My bad....

In regards to the ignition, does any one have a how to for the 1997.5? CiscoKidRB and I are stuck and don't want to mess anything up with the install. The new coil/distributor is a pain!
