I found a nice 98 Sentra SE w/ 24K at a dealer near me, and I wanted some input on the car. I know these things are somewhat rare, but who has one/ has driven one? Any thoughts? Is there anything major other than the VLSD that I'll miss? I have a 91 SE-R now, but I'm hoping to get something w/ fewer miles. Thanks for the help.

A 98 Sentra SE is a great car to get. 24k isn't too bad either, mines a 99 and I already have 34k on it (what can I say, I love to drive). Overall, its a good car, good mileage, plenty interior room. I'd buy it.....but then again I already one. :D

With the turbo, no people in it and no jack or spare it weighed in at 2642lbs. Not bad compare to like a P11 or something :)

Personally, I don't think I'll ever get rid of mine. Has 55K on it and pulls like a mother. Plus, there really aren't that many out there so it's kind of cool to have a car that is relatively limited in production.

Here's a couple of mine:

4 doors 4 life

The 98 is almost as cool as a 99 :D I love having 4 doors though. So much easier if you drive ppl around like I do (unfortunately).

BTW squeezinSE your car looks great. I'm thinking about getting that front end because someone hit mine and I have insurance money lying around to fix it.

Which ones? The stock ones or the modified Mugen ones? If you want the Mugen Ones you can contact MikeR from his site at www.nwnismosyndicate.com. If you want the stock ones they are kind of beat up on the bottom but still in good condition otherwise. Selling those for 75 or 100 bucks. Let me know.

The 4 doors is what got me too. I like the sedan/touring look without being too extreme, that was my whole idea anyways. With how low I keep my car it's kind of pain with ppl in the back seat but with the 2.0 no problems.

If you can get the front end, do it. It's really durable, I hit a tire in the road going 80 and just left some black marks but they came right off with some goof off.

squeezinSE, how much nitrous are you squeezing and whats your quickest e.t./fastest trap speed?

BTW-your car looks clean
I ran it once and didn't too well cuz I have a lot of extra weight with the stereo. The 17's don't help much either. I'm running a 60 shot but soon won't have to use nitrous:) I'd rather not say. It was never tuned right and I ran faster without NOS. Works awesome on the freeway though.
