    Where are the engineers going to be put to work? I was hoping to get a job with them once I graduate (BSME) in a few years since I live right next to the Smyrna TN plant. I doubt they have many engineers there though.

    More than likely, the engineers will be working on the next generation Sentra (basically taking Renaults work and westernizing it), a compact SUV (based on the aforementioned Sentra), and a smaller entry level compact car for the US.

    Also VQ engine production is spreading to the US, so they'll probably need engineers for that as well.

    Plus who knows what else Nissan needs done.

    The Altima SE-R isnt what its cracked up to be. Sorry. If you really want a more enthusiest oriented car than the SE get a G35.

    The Maxima is little more than a name now.

    The altima is the new hotness, but not the SE-R.

    You can't get a G35 in a red.
    You can't get a G35 with 18s.

    Both coupe and sedan come in red.

    And you can always put the coupe wheels on the sedan :fawk:

    Actually, I saw a used coupe at a kia dealer. It had the 17" aero wheels. I cant fully convey how shitty it looked, i almost wanted to cry. The tires were like 205s or something fucking gay.
