Please let me know how it is.
Yes, the ride is a lot better. Thanks again for the tip!

I have already had several conversations with folks who stopped simply to check out my car.

During these conversations, I pretend not to be overly proud of my car, and express surprise that Motor Week not only said the 2016 Maxima was easily the best Nissan sedan they have ever tested, and, despite CVT and FWD, also selected this Maxima as their sports sedan of the year.

I'm glad I could help. Tire pressures make a huge difference in ride comfort. I'm glad it was something that simple.

Take a tire off that's inflated to 33 psi and roll it around. It may bounce a bit because there's no weight on it, but it won't bounce around like a tire that's inflated to 44 psi.

Same concept. You can play around with front and rear tire pressures to adjust handling of the car as well. Google it. Pretty interesting.

Thanks. I promised myself I wouldn't do springs on this car. It would look better of course, but it doesn't look like 4x4 mode without springs, so I'm content.

My only mods are wheels, tires, k&n filter and a bunch of Plastidip.

@Deerram Nice looking SR. Liking your choice of the painted corner Stillen Spitter. Looks very nice on that color as well and I think is the best look when adding the splitter!

So happy for you. I have followed your 8th gen crusade here for around a year, and had my fingers crossed things would someday break your way. After doing such 'due dilligence', I know you will take even more pleasure in driving your new baby. Congrats!

Thanks! Glad to finally join with a deal I'm happy with.

On a side note- anyone know how to tune to channel 0 or find the XM radio ID?

Deerram, you spent $30-40k+ on your car, please take off the fake brake calipers. Otherwise it's very nicely done so far.

It's my car and I'll do whatever the hell I want so don't worry about my calipers. I'm good with it and that's all that matters. Besides 95% of the people out there don't know the difference and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it.

Hi everyone! I bought my 2016 Maxima SR last Saturday. It's my first Nissan and so far am in love with it. I'm new to the forum as well.

Prior to the Maxima, I had a VW Passat TDI. With VW buying back the Passat, I had to get a new car and I fell in love with my Maxima from the moment I laid eyes on it. The dealer I went to has their Nissan store right next to their VW store. I had gone in to the VW store to sign some buyback paperwork and saw my Maxima next door and knew I had to have it. I don't drive the distances I used to, so I won't mind the mpg difference as much (was averaging 45mpg with the diesel). The Maxima is a night and day difference (in a good way) and I can't stop smiling while driving it.

The wheels look very nice. Did you just have your original SR 19s repainted, or find this new set painted this way?

I picked up the set from EBay. They are the PVD coated black chrome. I like them better than just a black painted wheel. They have a beautiful finish on them.

Agree the MGP caliper covers gotta go; I had the same ones (same color, actually) when I first started modding and ended up giving them away. Yes, 95% of people don't know the difference but it's the 5% of real enthusiasts that DO know the difference that say, "come on, man!" Especially with an otherwise beautifully done car.

As you said, it's your car to do what you want with -- I couldn't care less either way but the fact of the matter is that the MGP's are amateur hour stuff. Period.

They have a self-adhering epoxy blend caliper paint made specifically for rotors. It's glossy, looks great and it lasts. That's where you want to be.

Nice work, otherwise. Car looks great, especially with that color scheme.

Gave her her first real wash and wax today. I love the way the deep blue pearl really shines in the sunlight.
