Hello! I've been the owner of my 05 Sentra SE-R manual 6 speed for about 6 years now. My husband's brother-in-law owned it for a couple years before that during which time he did some pretty nice after market work (installed leather seats, seat heaters, custom back lights, custom tail pipe, brand new transmission, and other engine work that I'm not super familiar with!). Times got hard for him and my then fiancé and I needed a car. He sold it to us for what he owed on his loan (about $4K). It was 2010 and the car had barely 30k miles on it. It was a killer deal for us! Unfortunately, it was our only car and we drove it a lot and still drive it a lot! We've done basic maintenance but I wish we had the time and money to keep it at its former glory. Anyway, I'm sure grateful for forums like this as I've got some questions I'd like to run by you all and I shall be posting in the 2000-2006 Sentra (SE-R/Spec V) forum soon! Thanks for the welcome!
