Finally, after a month of looking for this specific Cube [they've been quite hard to find, especially in the 6pd Manual Trans. around here] I picked up my Steel Gray Cube this weekend!

Drove all the way from Nashville to Indianapolis to get it, but I'm totally digging it. Already tried to swap out the stereo but didn't realize I needed a Torx screwdriver to remove the stereo brackets. I'll post some pics of that when I get to it... and the other mods I'm planning.

But for now, here he is!

P.S. Oh yeah, this is also replacing a 2007 Nissan Versa I had up until about a month ago. It was totaled when I got hit by a deer and flew into a ditch! Much happier to have this one... pics of the smashed up Versa also attached.

The 6 spd is awesome. :) Without a doubt, the easiest to drive manual I've ever owned... [Granted, I've never owned a sports car, but my Versa was the same 6spd and felt much, much clunkier].

I test drove the auto before I bought, but after owning a 6spd versa, the zippiness I could get out of the tiny 122hp engine in the manual just wasn't replicated by the CVT... IMHO.

Now time to deck it out!

this is got to be the easiest to drive manual, very few revs to get going and and clutch is so easy. when i get into my 370z after driving the cube for a few days it always takes me a while to get used to a heavier and much more touchy clutch and and stiff shifter. enjoy!

Glad you're ok!!!

I'm jealous of the grey.... that's what I wanted. Glad to see someone else somewhat close to me. (I'm from KY)
I was talking to one of the members in WV, and I'll tell you... we should organize a meet. I think a trip to the Dragon would be gorgeous. Whatcha think?

Glad you got your ride, Someone totaled their Versa in my front yard. Thrashed my lawn and almost took out my mailbox. It still had the dealer plate on it. I said, so thats what a versa looks like totaled :D
