Hmm. I guess I need to start bugging people in Canada then and get them in shape. We'll find you a way to get parts, either through a dealer or someone that can get them across the border.

That would be great.

I want an alarm on her, and can't get one through Nissan Canada. I was willing to pay the dealership but they didn't have the part.

Trust me, I'm sure the salesman is sick of me. I email him all the time with a question about another product that I would like, lol.

I could order from an american website, but than duty and shipping charges would most likely outweigh the initial cost of the item, not to mention adding the foreign exchange rate to it.

I want our Canadian dealerships to be able to order and install the parts for us here. I don't want any parts of my warranty to be voided, so I want them to be able to install it for me.

Gotcha - I understand.

I'm thinking of doing a special deal for our Versa owners on the custom catback we build... Dan (CodeRed) has one and loves it...

Am looking to do some lighting and audio mods later on...but for now, I've a trip to Brazil planned and have to watch those pennies...

I am new here as well. My wife and I just picked up a new 2009 Versa 1.8S hatch in Magnetic Gray for her new car. We traded in our 2007 Altima 2.5S for it. Miss the extra power, don't miss the car payments. It's about as plain jane and stock as you can get, but I'll throw a pic up anyways. The only "mod" it will probably ever get is tint, since I hate when I have to drive something that makes me feel like I'm in a fishbowl.

Postby Suavsilk » Sat Jan 30, 2010 4:36 am

Hey guys

This Tiida is my first car, i love it. What great cars you all have!I'm having a few issues with some modifications im doing, will search/post later, for now here's a couple of images:



I put a new head unit for the stereo system in, it does everything you would expect. My fav features are its bluetooth connectivity, so i can play music from my phone and usb connectivity (i use it to charge my e-cigarette)



You can kinda see my replacement speakers here, they aren't great but they are better than what came with the car. You can also see the silver LED housing and the feint glow of the blue LED's against the flash of the camera.



My phone camera isn't great, but here is a picture without the flash to try to show the effect the LED's make. Its better IRL tho :p



The same picture but shopped, so you can better see the position of the mod and stuff. The remote for my stereo is velcro'd to the floor.



My dog Shadow and the Tiida behind.

Don't worry there's not much to see, its just a stock ST Sedan.

My mods so far are:Darkest legal window tintReplaced head unitReplaced rear speakersBlue LED's in rear doors behind speaker grill

Still to come:DIY sensor headlightsReplacement dome light (super bright LED)Replacement luggage compartment light (ice blue)Custom headlightsCustom Tail lightsFog lightsNew head unit (yeh.. i want an even better one than the one i have!)Newer speakers all round inc. Subwoofer (id like to keep that huge boot space and use 2 8" Fusion Reactor Slimline subs under each front seat) http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBay...123New Rims / TyresMaybe loweredMaybe paint job (i like black)Replacement inside trimSome kind of surf board carrying system lolRear view cameraCustom Grills / Skirts

Thats all what i want done now! too bad money dosnt grow on trees! haha

Hello Fourm,

I know that this is mainly for the Versa crowd but I figured a Nissan advocate is a Nissan advocate. I drive, my new baby, a 2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5-liter V6 290 hp and 261 pound-feet of torque. Leather and all the extras that I could afford. The CVT is awesome. Also I work in tax returns in Charlotte NC so if any one needs some advice look me up here:

Hope to get a lot from this community!

Hi Guys! I´m a newcomer to the forums and to the Versa / Tiida! My Tiida HB is about two months old and is my first Nissan ever. Nissan is well known brand at Argentina but it was out of the market for most of the 90s and the Tiida is the first car it sells in many years. I like the car but I feel it little bit soft -mostly at high speeds.

I see you took off the balck-out covering on the tops of your doors. I like it. What color is your car, white or light silver?

Any pics of your sub work?

Hi all.
My name is Jay, from the Hamilton On area.
I am so noob, i haven't picked up my V yet.
Hopefully ready this week!
Bought it to replace 2001 Sentra 5sp, 312800km.
Not dead yet, but tired of no A/C!
Upgrades to include speaker transfer from 01, tint, better tires.
We'll see after that.
I like the versaspeed grille upgrade, lowering kit, dvd etc.
Have lurked this forum for years as Sentra owner, now voila!
told wife about Renault connection and she said Nissan Versaille! :bowrofl:
It stuck!
Photos after delivery.
More impressions to come.
Like this car and NICO very much. Very comprehensive!

Hi! My name's Ellen and we just bought a 2009 Versa 1.8s Hatchback. I know, she's used, but i still love her. She's the only red alert i've seen in town. She was a rental, so we got all the options we wanted for much less than a new car. Bought the 4 yr extended, so she's just as good as new. I also have an '01 Xterra that I drive in the winter and i wanted something better on gas for the summer. Ordered Vent Visors for her last week and they're being installed on monday. I'll be putting the TomTom in there this weekend and playing with that for a bit. I'll be adding more stuff as the month passes. Y'all know how we are with a new toy!!

Yes post up pics when she is all clean :)

Did you get the visors from Nissan? They are super easy to install ... My dealership charges a ridiculous amount of money for everything here (Canada) so I buy everything from the US, and install it myself. LOL!

the vent visors were not available thru nissan. not showing as an available accessory. so i bought them at auto zone and hubby is putting them on. i really wanted them because i have them on my xterra and can't deal with not having them on any other vehicle.

Our dealership sells them here for a ridiculous amount of money. I ordered mine through Bob at versaspeed.com
You should visit his site, he sells accessories and parts for the Versa :D

Hello. My name is John and I live in Victoria, BC. I have had my 2010 Versa 1.8 SL for about two months now. My previous car was a 2006 Chevy Aveo. It was decent transportation but the Versa is such a huge improvement. I am loving it.

My Versa is Metallic Ice with a black interior. My wife and I are leaving on a trip to Nevada about the middle of July, so we are hoping the love affair with the Versa will continue.

I have noticed a fair bit of water dripping under the car after driving for a few hours. I know that the AC will produce condensation but I do not use the AC in an attempt to maximize mileage. I have checked and it doesn't appear to be antifreeze and the drip seems to be between the engine and the firewall. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. I look forward being a part of this forum.

Welcome John!
A little roomier than the Aveo eh? Just a bit!
I believe the AC compressor runs when the front defroster is on, thus condensate from AC lines etc.
I commute lots in my V, and I'm eager to hear how the Nevada trip goes.

Howdy! Well heck, my name's Chad. I'm in the Coast Guard in Mobile, AL. I've got an 09 S HB. It is stock. I got it new back in Sep right off the truck. First new car ever owned, and very pleased so far. There's a few rattles I don't like so far, but I guess you get what you pay for. Anyhoo, I just ordered some new Q clips so I can put my old Yakima on it. I want to put some factory rims on it, but they are super expensive. Not sure what I'm gonna do there. This is my wife's car, so I cant do anything crazy. Personally I want it lowered with some Slipstreams on it, But that'll never happen. Well, thats about it. Later.

My girlfriend recently bot an 2008 Versa HB and I'm posting on her behalf actually.
I'll try to post some pics soon.

She really likes it's handling, visability and gas mileage.

Unfortunately she's damaged the fuel door (don't ask how!) and needs to find a replacement. Shouldn't be too hard to switch out I think.

My question is is this exclusively a dealer part or could there be any chance of trying to find an after market version.

TIA

Paul ;)
