I still can't like the front end styling, but the rest of the car is really nice. Interiors are real good, and the big sunroof is a nice setup. With the 30" firestone ATs and locking diff, it ought to go through the snow pretty well.

When I have one, I usually have an extension breakout harness and the cluster sitting in the passenger seat.

How long have these been on the streets without camo? I usually see all sorts of test vehicles near my office, never saw one of these.

That is what this had. Also had a huge red button on a large yellow box on the dash. Looked like an e-stop. I want to know what that button does.

For quite some time I believe. At least a few months.

That front end just keeps looking uglier and uglier to me. When did they let Nissan start doing their body styling?

Hmm, we have two that we usually have, a white one and a maroon colored one (there are 2 different clusters, so we need one vehicle of each type). I think we've had them uncoverd in public for about 2 months maybe?

Usually our software team has them, its the last stuff to get tuned. The electronics are done.

They take them out to all the lunch spots around Auburn Hills.

Its grown on me a lot. I hated it at first.

I think the hood needs something like maybe some contours or even a decal of some sort. Its just too big and plain compared to everything else "edgy" going on in the front.

the button is a master kill switch. I have fun telling people what it does. I told one guy it was a self destruc button in case the car falls into the hands of the other big three,, or a ejection seat.
