Man, I've been missing this thread for a while
Mayhem, the brakes/rotors have been fixed under warranty on numerous occasions for other Max owners. I know one guy with an '02 that have had his rotors turned twice, his pads changed twice and his rotors replaced. He's still having problems. IMO, a b-b warranty is just that. Everything should be repaired unless it is due to carelessness. Rotors warping on a large # of cars with less than 36k miles reflects a poor design on Nissans part, not the owners...
Nissan really needs to work on their service centers. My co-worker in Cinci has a '00 I30t and I have been with him to get his car serviced. On one occasion, he had a huge bulge on one of his Potenza's after hitting a huge pothole. Definately not a warranty issue, but the infiniti dealership sold/installed a new one for $75! They ate 1/2 the price of the tire to make the customer happy ($150 ea their price) and washed his car before he picked it up. Having donuts, cookies, bottled water, cokes and coffee out for their customers is great service!
SCOTTDW, from an NA standpoint, options are Y-pipe, B-pipe, free-flow cat, and cat-back ( muffler on the '00+ are not very restrictive anyway ) are avail for exhaust. Numerous intakes are available and a few options are avail for UDP's or simply lightened pullys. There are a few ECU chip upgrades out there too. Does a MEVI work on a '00-01? I dunno, but don't think so. Of course Stillen has an SC and there is a guy in Louisville selling and installing turbo systems on Maximas for slightly more $$ than the Stillen SC. Don't forget nawz and water injection for forced induction applications. If you are an auto, you can get the VB upgrade for firmer shifts. Not sure if Quafi (sp?) is avail for that year ( manual )....Suspension upgrades include big-brake kits, struts/shocks, springs, RSB, FSB, RSTB, FSTB, subframe connectors and of course wheels/tires.
Did I miss anythng?
