Hi everyone,

Bought my 2012 Pearl white Kizashi SLS 2 weeks ago at my local carmax dealership. I was in the market for a car and started doing my research several weels ago, I went on the carmax site and entered all the features i wanted in the search filter, and would you guess that several pages of Infiniti's Audi's, Mercedes, Subaru and BMW cars popped up, but burried in between was the Kizashi listed at $16k compared to $30-40k for those other cars. I couldnt believe how sexy the Kizashi SLS looks with all the features i was looking for especially AWD at that price.

I spent a week straight researching the kizashi and I was pretty much sold. I'm so happy with my purchase. I am even more thrilled that my insurance premium to insure my Kizashi is dirt cheap compared to what it would be for a BMW or Merc. My Kizashi is a real head turner especially with the ladies :). The car looks like $35,000 but costs half the price!

Welcome and congrats on the car. I agree that the Kizashi is a car that feels upscale for the price. I get compliments on mine all the time by people who ride in it. It's nice to have a car that feels more upscale than it is but doesn't cost much to own.

It's in my signature but it's a 2011 Kizashi Sport GTS with the 6 speed manual transmission. It's black. I bought it used in late August of 2012 with only 7500 miles. It now has around 34,000 miles.

It now currently wears roof racks and the Mont Blanc bike module.

Wow thanks for sharing. Amazing looking Kizashi. The black color really looks elegant and sophisticated.

Thanks. However, black is a difficult color to deal with. Scratches are easily visible and it doesn't take much to look dirty. Only when it's cleaned and waxed does it look stunning. I actually washed and spray-waxed it yesterday with Meguiar's Quik Wax. This product does justice to the Black Pearl Metallic finish.
