  • Dan's Mad Max

    So I just bought a 2005 nissan maxima se with the 5 speed auto. It has only 76,400 km (47,472 miles) and is extremly clean. It does not have any issue with the 5 speed auto (knock on wood). I plan to keep this car for a good deal of time so maintenance will come before mods (doing a complete fluid change in the next month or so). I plan to smoke the tail lights, black out the ugly front chrome grille, get window tints and HID in the front head lights (including fogs). Eventually, i will get it lowered and an exhaust + air intake, but thats a long ways away.

    There is one thing that is problematic with it right now. The owner told me that he had new brakes put on it this summer (confirmed by the mechanic i brought it to get inspected) and he told me that the front right dics had warped. Now it makes noise (sort of intermittent but at steady intervals, decreasing with speed) only when i apply the brakes and only under 20km/h. Should/can i leave this or should i get this looked at soon.

    Get it fixed asap, don't ever leave warped rotors on your car you don't know what could happen. Do both at the same time so you know that you won't have problems later down the track with the other one.
    IT'S NOT THE SPEED THAT KILLS, IT'S THE SUDDEN STOP.

                    dont know what u mean about "side protection". As for the number plates, in Quebec when u buy a new car/change owner u have to get new plates within ten day's. Since i did this within ten days of getting her (i dont mess around) i didint get them. If u look at this picture , the little yellow square is the temporary plates. As for the front plates, well that isn't mandatory in Quebec.

                      List of thing to get done this weekend. Im on vacation and have 4 days of (monday no school, and tuesday no school because we have elections).

                      - Paint headlights
                      - Smoke bling lights (small side lights under headlights, called "bling lights" by maxima owners, not actual fog lights, they just turn on at night when u signal to turn)
                      - Paint wheels (gunbolt metal)
                      - Paint brake calipers/brake disc (either nissan gold or silver)
                      - Wax and clean
                      - Air filter + cabin air filter
                      - Measure seat rails
                      - See about painting side mirrors (maybe black)
                      - Rust spots on front

                      We so exited

                        We have a maxima to. Your car looks mint except for the black grille and debadging imo. But to each their own. Wouldve looked better with taking off everything in back except the nissan badge imo.

                        Any plans on getting spoiler? IF you plan on getting rims and lower any time get a35 maxima rims. Best rims ive seen on these maximas so far.

                        Floored it yet? Maximas are quick as chickens.

                              for the rims, i was thinking more the 5 spoke style, really like those


                              and for spoiler, either like yours or something like this
