Hi I'm a Nissan tech and the juke nismo has just come available on staff discount so I am now very tempted to get one, however if I did get one there are a few mods/changes I would like to make and would like your info/opinion on them.
1st I would want to paint the wheels black, I don't like the standard dark grey wheels, and also get the chrome Finnish on the wheels painted red like the dark night juke
2nd have noticed there are a few exhaust mods available, I personally don't think the exhaust is loud enough so would want to get rid of the centre box and also from reading a few posts would remove the 2nd cat but would this require a remap
3rd the standard speakers are know match for my choice of music, drum n bass dubstep, (I know not every1s cup of tea) but how easy to upgrade speakers and fit a sub? There is no pre out on connects, I have not had a connect 2 out but guess they are the same? Why they don't have the Bose sound system as an option I don't know. Has any1 fitted the Bose system from a QQ?
4th I am a keen fisherman and am interested how much of my gear I can get in as atm there is no tow bar available for the nismo, does any1 have a juke and fish? I may try n sweet talk my DP and ask to take the nismo home to see if I can get all my gear in

Any replays will be much appreciated and I will try and use my inside knowledge where possible to help others on here

Hi N1smo, welcome to the forum. Good news on the NIsmo being added to staff discount scheme. I have a friend at the factory who offered me his discount so I may have to take a look into that if its now on the scheme

Music wise. Yes it would Venice if the bose. System was an option like the QQ. I would assume you can add the Qqbits to a juke. Though plying with wiring is again something I haven't got into

Remap and tune wise best speak to Abbey they know their Nissan's.

hi N1smo,welcome to the forum,this is one of my main gripes with car manufacturers is car audio equipment uk and europe are told your having this system thats it no upgrades.america your can have the upgraded system so in there juke nismo when they are released are going to get a ROCKFORD FOSGATE ECO PUNCH SYSTEM:- rf badged connect system,6xrf speakers,rf 8"subwoofer and amplifier (subwoofer mounted in left side boot panel)it would be nice to work on a level playing field but i don't seem to think this will happen in the near future.i have enquired about installing a aftermarket bose system in other vehicles i have owned and its a big no no they have to be factory installed due to them being correctly setup it's not just a speaker swap out.

Wheels are the first thing likely to change on mine when it arrives ;-)
They look nice, but for me, don't for the look of the rest of the car.
DKR paint job for them was one option I was thinking of, but am now going down a different route... ;-)

Exhaust and remap are on the future plans, but will live with std for a while.

Music - to be honest, not high on my list of things to do, or may go as far as swapping out the speakers, as that is (just about) in my skill set :-D

Boot space - suggest that borrowing one, or at least taking your kit into work, might be a good idea ;-)

Thanks for the info Gadget, shame it's not a simple bolt in job for the Bose, will prob look at taking it to a audio centre and see what they sudjest. By just upgrading the speakers does it dramatically improve sound quality?

that's ok,by upgrading speakers you will notice a difference in clarity.these speakers are on the edge of there limits especially when there is heavy bass,it has been and always will be the speakers that let down any oem audio system.as you said i would take it to an audio specialist and let them look at it and try different settings,i suspect co-ax speakers will be required if so would be heading for alpine or pioneer.
