Default Another "So Long" Z Thread

Hey guys!

I traded in my 09 Sport Z last night for a 2013 Altima. WHAT?!?!?! It's all good guys; my wife and I are expecting, so the Z isn't going to be practical. I really had a few more months I could have enjoyed the Z, but why prolong the inevitable?

Anyways, like I said I got a 2013 Altima 2.5 SL. This thing has everything I need (except for the HP lol) and then some. One thing that's pretty cool is the heated steering wheel, which I probably won't use too much here in FL, but still pretty neat. It rides like a drea; night and day from the Z (which is to be expected). Here are a few photos of the new ride; first mod will be...limo tint!

Thanks so much guys!! I'll admit it really sucked watching my car drive away for the last time...but then I turned my head and saw the new car with my wife next to it...and I immediately forgot about the Z lol.

I can see another Z down the road at some point...they may be even better then!

Congrats on the new addition to the family! Shame to see the Z go, Altima looks good

When I see threads like this I thank the car gods that I still have the Z after just having my son. I think I'll be ok until my wife sees one of the fancy townhouses up the street go up for sale lol.

I told her way back that I wouldn't be getting rid of it, but it's just not that practical and would be an added strain to only have 1 car that can transport a baby.

Besides, now I get to start all over on the mods haha...

Thanks man! It'll look good with some window tint...that'll happen next week.

Here are a couple shots of the interior; zero gravity seats in charcoal leather:





Also, this is a neat feature. When I hit the unlock button on the remote, these lights turn on; they are very bright at night:

I hear you on that one, I was lucky enough to pick up a VW Golf on a short term lease but I tell you...I get the dirty looks every now and then because of the 3rd car lol.

and ya, don't see enough modded Altima's! Interior is pretty sharp from your pics!

I thought about keeping it...but can't justify the added payments.
