  • My GF wants one

    If she gets it, I'll be sure to autoX it and see what happens. Should be...interesting.

    The suspension is almost identical to the B14/B15 setup. The only thing that is probably different is the upper mount. (which is different between B14 and B15 as well)

      Hm, time to read Kojima's blog.

      I bet the CG is way higher though; the car looks like a small minivan to me.

        I doubt it's much higher than a stock B15. It weighs about the same as well.

            Isn't the Versa just a Renault Megane with a Nissan badge? French build quality scares me.

              It's the Nissan Tiida, for the other parts of the world.

                So far it's been a better car than some other models we have out there......

                  Too bad there's not a supercharger or something available, could be a fun little car.

                  I think I'll try to talk her into a Mini if her car dies. At least we could autoX it.

                    It's not hard to fabricate a turbo setup for the car.

                    Those darn Mini's are pretty fun too though.

                      Or she could get a Honda Fit and you could swap in a K20. That would get her the size car she wants and the autocross ability you want. A bit more work though.

                        When the fit came out I looked into that a little, just out of curiosity. I love K20s and K24s, but the newer honda platforms don't do it for me at all.

                        Anyways, her damn Mercury seems to be holding out, and she's pretty broke, so I don't think a remotely fun car is in her foreseeable future.

                          "my girlfriend wants one" - what, a real man?

                          the fit looks 5x better.

                              This thread haunts me every time I check NRR.

                              My S14 was stolen, her Sable was stolen, and now we live somewhere else and she has a turbo forester which is pretty sweet. Thread is irrelevant, and besides the answer now is Fiesta or Mazda2.
