The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

Discussion in '2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R V Spec' started by hondapwrd, Feb 12, 2003.

  1. The Silvia's SR20DET is enough reason for it to be in here. The S15 was the answer to the people that said it had lost it way, after the grand touring S14 was created. I hope that a Silvia will be on this site soon.

    Yup.. i totally agree with u..Wheres the 240sx/silvias?
     
  3. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    Exactly, and the Sentras not a bad car, but its definitely not a supercar. I mean civics are nice cars too, but I definitely don't think they should be on here. Too many cars just clutters the site.

    This version of an SE-R is lame. I test-drove one at a local Nissan dealer when I was shopping for a car. Needless to say I wasn't impressed with Nissan's efforts with this vehicle. When I asked the salesperson about any used 240SX/Silvias on the lot, he gave me a blank look. The Sentra SE-R leaves a lot to be desired in the terms of performance. And for a car that was sitting on the lot with only 2,300 miles on it, it should have responded better than it did. Dropping the hammer only produced meager responses of power, far less than what Nissan touts for this 4-door. After this test drive, I was more than willing to spend my money at the Nissan dealer in the next county for a used S15 with a brand new SR20DET under the hood.

    does anybody have any idea why some of the nissans in Japan have such girly names? I would rather say i drive a 350Z than a fairlady!

    remember, cars are your baby. not your homosexual partner.

    ----------------------------------
    It has been know for cars to be a "her". BTW, nissan does not have ALL girl names for their cars. ONly the fairlady. What else can u tihnk that is a girly name for a car? Maxima? Altima? sentra? hmm.. i dont see n e more..
     
  9. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    its odd yes I know. a car that produces 180kw weighs 1300kg and does 1-100km in 5.8 clicks is not considered a supercar
     
  10. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    not a bad sentra though
     
  11. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    Yeah its very nice, so is the 2004 Sentra
     
  12. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    Sorry man.....the 2004 Sentra is the most hideous thing Nissan could have possabily done to that car!
     
  13. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    oh yea.. fa sho. The 2002-2003 spec v looks heeeeeelllllllllaaa better than the 2004 version. The 2004 version resembles the 2004 maxima, which i think nissan screwed up on coz it looks like the Z. After seein the 04 version, im plannin to get a white 2003 spec v, even tho the 2004 comes with Brembos, but u swear u need brembos on the se-r.
    Heck, pretty much all the nissans that are comin out now resemle the Z in one way or another. Murano, maxima, sentra line-up, and soon the altima will have the "same" grill like the maxima.
     
  14. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    Unfortunatly Nissan is making all their cars with the "tooth" now for some odd reason. I guess they some how think it is nice looking. I just can't wait until next year when the B16 Sentra comes out with a totally new redesign.
     
  15. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    ummm...the fairlady was originally used by datsun for the 4 seater/2+2 capacity versions of their coupes...namely the Z series cars...
     
  16. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    i like those names. Numbers and random letters are kinda dull and boring. Names such as Silvia, Skyline, Fairlady and others are much more interesting =D
     
  17. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    I don't consider this a SuperCar, but still I'm getting one.

    It's affordable, and when compared to other cars in it's segment, it simply annihilates the competition.

    However, the 2004 looks ugly <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>
     
  18. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    Got to agree with the thread starter there. The UK S13 200sx will hot 60 in 6.8 seconds, and its RWD, adn it'll do 143 MPH.
     
  19. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    i hope your talking bout the SR20DET, cuz the non-turbo will get new asshole torn out by this spec v.
     
  20. Re: The Sentra's a Supercar, but a Silvia isn't?

    I was debating whether I should get a 2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V or the 2004 Dodge Neon SR-T. What shall I get?

    "According to the Chief Designer, Mr. Ootake, the name "Silvia" comes from Greek Mythology and was the name of a beautiful Nymph. According to Roman Mythology (which borrows from the Greek) Siliva was the mother of Romulus and Remus (By Mars) and was the daughter of King Numitor. Her uncle gave her to to the goddess Vesta."
