No, the OBS will go to Heather. We are passing on her 2004 Sentra with 225k miles to her mom.

It looks almost like they just put the camera perpendicular to the ground instead of leveling the tripod. Very noticeable in the hill decent part as well.

Looked pretty legit to me. And even with the "fake" steepness that you are saying, I went up something far steeper in training without an issue.

Awesome. I drove a white XT touring with the eye-site package before putting a deposit down on the non turbo. I really liked the black leather, wish I could get that in the non turbo.

I had to force myself to stay off boost so I'd stick to my purchase plan!

The waiting sucks!!

Haha, I noticed 'staying off boost' proved a little difficult on my test drives.
258 ft lbs @ 2000rpm with the CVT just wants to launch. Something tells me I won't be getting 28mpg, lol.

Your only options for black leather in the 2.5i are with burnished bronze, ice silver, and crystal black, I believe. Personally, I prefer light leather (but dark cloth), so I'm happy with the platinum interior used w/the jasmine green models

Actually in the non turbo i think it is just silver that you can pick the light grey or black, but it would make sense on the brown too.

I was happy the color is light gray and not ivory. I prefer lighter exterior colors with dark interiors, but this time around it will be the opposite (dark gray outside with light gray inside).

Ice silver is the only one where you can choose between the two while black and burnished bronze come with black interiors only.

I only like the brown interior when paired with the Outback SAP in Deep Cherry Pearl, myself

The wife just bought an XT touring VRP on Monday and I've been driving it all week while she's been out of town. This thing is awesome. I actually really like the CVT transmission. Still would take a 6 speed manual over it if it was an option on the XT. The back seat feels huge and the blutooth works way better than on my VW. She got it for 1600 under invoice through the costco auto program. It's going to suck giving back to her when she gets home later today.

We just brought home our new XT Premium. 36 miles and so far we are very happy. We asked about purchasing through the Costco auto program and the salesman told us that the XT did not qualify. I thought this was strange as it can be selected on costco's website. Can anyone verify this? Reading the above post it sounds like we were given a line of BS.

Edit: Do dealers have the option to opt out of the Costco program or decide which models qualify?

Sounds like you might qualify for some free service at that dealership...

I still got my 2.5i touring for well below invoice by just sending a quote request to the 5 local dealers.

You are right; I remember now. I could not get black (no eye-site/hid/keyless). And didn't want bronze, so the only color option was silver in my head. - Paul G.

Can anybody with a non-Eyesight Touring tell me size headlight bulbs we have?
Also, DRLs?

Thanks!

Why don't you just consult the Owner's Manuals, and particularly, the bulb chart beginning on page 14, here?

Booyah. H11s for the low-beams.
$150 HIDs here I come (pretty much the ONLY reason I wanted $2,500 Eyesite pkg)

I don't need no auto-leveling nonsense!

These kits come with very high praise - good beam pattern / cut-off.

Save the $2,500 if you could give a rats about the Eyesite stuff, but want HIDs. I'm just glad the '14 has a semi std. size.

Thought that was a law for those HIDs.

It's also not the same headlight; the $2400 option package includes the HID and LED strip for daytime running lights (since it comes with auto lamps).

Why do it right when you can do it cheap?

I wonder how much it would cost to swap out those headlights for the HID version (levelers and all). Cheaper than the whole EyeSight package?
