Default Just picked up my nismo. pics included + a couple questions

Went into the dealership with the intention of leasing a new touring model but ended up purchasing a Nismo.


It's an 09 and only has 4000 miles. Was able to pick it up for 34k + tax and title fee

I have a couple of questions:

1) Is there such thing as an "s-tune"? Idk if the previous owner put the s-tune sticker on the side or if it came from the factory, but I have never heard of the s-tune and don't wanna keep it on there if that is not what it is (don't know if it shows in the pics but it is on the doors just under the sideview mirror)

2) How did I do on the price?

Thanks, here are some crappy ipad pics!

Congrats first of all yes there is a NISMO S-Tune lip package front rear and sides that sticker is optional, if you LIKE the stickers keep them if not have a professional remove them.

34 seems a little high for an 09? I may be wrong but just looking at other threads I've seen people get 10's and 11's for 36 and under

But great looking car, please Z members confirm if Im correct or not.

Personally I like the nismo S-Tune hood sticker just not the sides.

well I'm glad to know that there is actually an s-tune and it is not just a random sticker that the guy put on there. Can't believe I never heard of that after all the time I spent on this site lol.

I personally thought the price was not too bad compared to other advertised prices I have seen. I brought my dad with me to the dealership since it was my first time buying a car from a dealer and I can't negotiate to save my life.... he had to haggle the crap out of them (bluff walking out multiple times, etc.) to get it down to 34 when it was 37 originally. but I could be wrong, maybe I did pay too much. really don't know lol

OP, did you buy this car from Capital City Nissan in Georgia? I think I seen the ad for it on Autotrader. If I remember right the dealer had it listed for 35,500 or somewhere in that range. 34K isn't bad, especially with that mileage.

Grats on the purchase. The NISMO S-Tune graphics look pretty good on black and white. If you don't like it, it can be removed. Either get the dealer to do it or go to a quality bodyshop.

The price is not bad - I got a '10 w/ 5K miles on it (nismo) for $35 in TX from carmax.

But no s-tune so thats probably worth something. Only options mine had was the floor mats and lighted "Z" on the floor panel.
