so, my girl bought a 2000 altima about a year ago, she pretty much hates it.

she says its slow, it handles bad, its not comfortable, and the interior is cheap.

she also has some complaints about the steering wheel not being in a good position.


I'm not dissing altimas here, I love nissans. I'm just telling you what she says

So I've gone a little out of my way to make her car a little better.

heres what ive done

I shaved the rear emblems, not the bar, just the nissan logo and the GXE logo. that looks so nice imo

next i took off the front plate, put in some nokia bulbs, put in some hyper white front turn signals and I beleive thats it.

what are some things I can do for cheap or next to nothing?

anyone ever drill the airbox? or have plans for a CAI? thats something that would give it a little more growl.

what about a 2k maxima muffler? whats that sound like on stock exhaust?

btw her car is a alpine white 2k gxe with the nice 16 inch gxe wheels. no leather no roof. just keyless and power.

The stock variable capacity muffler I heard gives a 2nd gen a nice growl.

There are no 16 Inch GXE wheels.
