Hmmm. Obvioiusly Nissan does not read this forum. I would estimate that these changes will result in an increase in sales of 0% when compared to the current model year.

Wait a sec, don't the premium models already come with dark wheels? What's new about that?
Also, which direction do you think they revised the springs and dampers, up or down in stiffness?

"Blue tire valve stem caps (running change) Blue caps signify that the tires are filled with compressed nitrogen."

Had some wheels that came with blue valves and stem caps, didn't take long before one vanished off the car...

Are blue caps a universally understood sign for nitrogen fill now? I'd be happy to replace the caps with blue if it assured something or meant roadside assistance was prepared to supply it - since the car has to go to the dealer or I have to source a shop it doesn't seem like it makes a difference at this point.

And what does a polished front bumper on SS mean, does it look different or is it just the clear coat being hand polished?

The US tank was already the larger one. Look at the 2009 specs.
