Some people are plain odd. Check this out. This appears to be a nice front-end of a bimmer

But wait...................................

I thought this was a BMW!!! A Nissan with a BMW Badge.........how degrading.

Let the Bashing begin.

there's a guy who has a 200sx nissan that always parks near this restaurant I go to.

the thing is, the factory lettering on the trunk isn't there anymore and instead, he put LARGE WHITE letters there, very cheaply done. like you'd see on a DIY for-sale sign.

many people go to great lengths to down-play the logo lettering. I see ZERO reason why you'd think that enlarging the lettering on a so-so car would be of any use at all. weird!

If you look at the performance sheet.... I am not following how he can do a 1/4 mile in 14.27 sec @ 96.6? His torque is ok, but not exceptional to really get him off and going. with a displacement of 2.0 l (1998cc) 4Cyl. naturally aspirated??? How does that work??

It's possible if he's a good driver with good tires and the car really weighs about 2400lbs like he claims, especially if that horsepower is at the wheels.

It would have to be at the wheels to pull a time like that? I believe that when you get your car dyno'd they show it at the wheel? Might be incorrect. Thanks MAC

the shop can spit out the dyno with some conversion factory applied if they like, or pop the data into excel. I suppose it's possible that he could do that with only 170flywheel hp especially since it looks like it's just a gtech time. 96mph would probably be too high for only 170flywheel hp but gtech's are always high on the trap speed.

hehehe - looks like a sentra se. has the same engine as my infiniti: 140hp stock. Dunno what he did to it to get 170 - and I highly doubt that's at the wheels.

look he even has a little ///M badge inside the grill... :lol:

Well, everyone knows that an ///M badge is an instant 30HP.
