Postby kindadinosaur » Thu Jun 12, 2014 7:04 am

Hey guys, im new here, after stalking everyones threads I want to do something to change the look of my 07' le pathy. I definetly need a new radio and I wanna change the exterior. Im not too car savy so I dont really wanna mess with the engine and stuff, but what do you guys have on your pathfinders that change the aesthetics of it?

The LE has a Bose system with 1-ohm impedance speakers and amps. It's possible to install an aftermarket deck, but it's not as simple as simply installing an aftermarket deck. You'll need a converter for it to work with the Bose amps and speakers and another converter to adapt it to work with the steering wheel controls. Personally, I think the Bose system sounds pretty good, but that's just my opinion.

Aftermarket headlamps are something you may want to consider and most are an improvement over the factory units. Keep in mind that you need to stick with 05-07 model lamps, because the nose was changed in 08 to accommodate the V8 option.

suspension, tires, airbags, lights, paint/plastidip stuff, intake manifold spacer (worth it's weight in gold), get rid of the y pipe and run a 2 into 1 muffler.

Those intake manifold spacers really worth the $270? Ive only heard good reviews but just can't get myself to cave.

Absolutely. Make sure to get the xtp one and not a cheap imitation
