This Nissan looks incredible. I love practically every aspect of the car. The front kit is great, the silver hood completes the look along with the white wing tying it all together. I only have one complaint: I have always felt that the numerous sponsor stickers that adorn motorports cars really took away from the overall cleanliness of a vehicle’s look. What I’m saying is, a lot of people look at a car like this and say “That’s really over the top” but if you were to take all the stickers away I think a lot more people would think the look was clean. Thoughts?
Simple fact here, folks. If you don’t think this is super-rad, you’re probably not capable of dressing yourself in the morning. I don’t think I’d have a Minicoop solely based on the fact that I could do better for my money, but that doesn’t make them uncool. Perfect drop and wheel combo makes this little guy the poster child for bad-ass FWD coupes. Mighty mouse comes to mind. Credit goes to konkyphotography.com!
Okay, the good and the bad here: I really like the overall shape of the dash, the slight tilt of the instrument panel and controls toward the driver, and the stitching style of the topmost portion of the dash. I don’t like the fighter-jet inspired shifter, and the abundance of buttons. I bet there are at least 75 different buttons on this dash alone, not even counting the ones you can’t see from this angle.
Overall however, I can’t say that I wouldn’t want 75 or even 100 buttons on my 7 Series. If I were in the market, I would want a plethora of luxury features, and I suppose without some clunky navigation system like iDrive, you would actually need 10,000 buttons. What is the motivation here? When your colleagues get in for a ride in your new luxo-cruiser and they catch the joystick and sea of buttons they must be impressed, right? I’m just not sure.
