This is my second 4th gen Maxima. First one was a 98 Pebble Beige GLE. I looked at a few different makes and models, but I guess I am addicted to the almighty VQ30 motor and purchased another one. This time it is a black 99 GLE. Fully loaded with heated leather seats, fogs, Bose cd/changer, even side impact air bags. The works.Below are my "old" 98 (left), and the "new" 99 (right): Here are some shots of it all stock, as I bought it: Interior is what really makes this car. It is absolutely immaculate, without a scratch or a rip, even the driver seat barely has creases in it. The comination of black dash, black leather and wood trim is stunning to say the least. Here are some pictures of the chrome mesh grill inserts. I started with the middle two openings in the bumper, but decided to cover the fog lights as well, since the left one had some damage and you can barely see it now. It will also protect them for the future. Note the blacked out turn signals: Here is a picture of the intake that I had on my 98, but now sits in my 99. It is a silver cone with a homemade MAF adapter. I left the stock snorkel for additional cold air induction.Here is a shot of the new taillights:and shoes - 18" Chrome Lexani Iris, wrapped in 245x40 Kumho Ecsta rubber I have played around with different bumper light setups. Here they are: stock orange all black black and clearHere are two latest toys:Front Strut Tower BarPNI Silver Bullet radar detectorChrome gauge rings. One of my favorite mods. The gave the dash a very luxurious look. Little pricey ($30), but worth it.New Exhaust!!! Dual tip Stainless Steel muffler, with square tips and rounded-off edges. I had to cut a larger opening with a Dremel, and left 1" of clearance all around the pipes (they get hot, since this is a straight through design).It looks and sounds awesome! Deep, not raspy at all. I love it!July, 2004New sound upgrade to the stock Bose. Two 10" Infinity Reference in a custom box and an Alpine amp. I made the box so I don't loose the ski-pass, as well as to bring some more bass into the cabin. Speakers are about 250W RMS each and amp puts out 175W RMS to each speaker.
