New guy introduction...

Hello all,

ive already made a few posts by now but figured you can’t walk into a room and not introduce my ride. I’ve always been a car enthusiast and have owned many cars, mostly Mustangs/Cobras but started making a family and that all changed. My most recent ride was a lifted ‘13 F-150 Ecoboost that was getting about 11-12 mpg. My 50 mile commute to work demanded I get rid of the truck and purchase something a little more practical. I knew I needed a sedan and looked at many cars to include the usual competitors to the Maxima (Accord Sport, Camry, IS250, etc.). I ended up stumbling upon the Max and was instantly attracted to the look. Once I started digging into it more (interior, horsepower, and CVT) I knew this was a suitable replacement. Now, after driving this thing around for the last two months I realize there is more to be done to set it apart. Fortunately I quickly discovered the aftermarket world for this car. As you can see, I’ve already hit Stillen up for the usual bolt ons. Next up, springs and exhaust then eventually commit to a set of wheels.
Happy to be a part of the community. Looking forward to getting to know this car.

You are always welcome here. There is a pot-load of techies and experienced DIY's on this site, always willing to help.

Yeah, I like the white too, but ended up getting Coulis (metallic burgundy).

Same color that I ended up with. Lol. I wanted the white and it was a no go. Then I wanted the blue with the tan/beige interior and nope again. So now I have the same damn color that my 7th gen was. Lol.

Thanks all! Good to be here. I know what you guys mean about the white, it was really down to the white or black SR for me all the way. The white ended up winning in the end. No regrets.
