Some background on the car
My 2007 Versa SL was ultimately saved from the wrecking yard because of a Stillen Lower Valance I found on Craigslist in March 09. I then Googled Stillen Versa and it had me mesmerized at the first glance of the Stillen Version of the Versa, a month later I found a Versa that was perfect for the transformation which began in April from a front end collision wreck to what you see today with only a few short months to work with over the summer months.

The modifications
As fast as I could open up my wallet parts where beginning to stock pile in the garage waiting to be installed onto the car. I first had to get rid of the small stock wheels that made handling feel like a short version of a van, I replaced them with 17x7 ICW 5 spoke rims with Nankang NS-1 215/45/17 Summer Tires the result was outstanding and the cars stance changed drastically.

From there on I tinted the windows for privacy and cooler internal temps; I installed the Thule Roof Rack and Window Visors for my journey across Canada (from Ontario to Vancouver) during the summer. But to make it more enjoyable on the open road I threw on the Stillen Front Lip, installed fog lights, Painted the Grill black, Rear Spoiler and upgraded the radio with a Pioneer F90BT in dash Navigation unit blasting through a complete set of JL Audio speakers, 2x Amplifiers and 10" Sub for some block rocking beats.

What does the future hold?
Over the winter months I am going to continue the torrid pace and I plan on changing a few more things in time for next spring which by then I hope will be a fully decked out Versa. First on the list will be getting Rear Valance by Stillen to finish the Stillen Look, a new set of Konig Runaway 17x7 rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Exalto 205/50/17 Tires to release some HP I lost with the much heavier set I am running right now, Blacked out Projector Headlights with 4300K HID, Strut Bar for some improved on and off ramp excitement and for some extra Horsepower with a Stillen Intake and Catback exhaust.

  • Blacked Out Grill
  • Walmart OEM look alike Fog Lights
  • 4300K HID Headlights
  • Tinted Windows with front "eye brow"
  • Stillen Front Lip
  • Thule Roof rack
