I currently own a Nissan Atima L33 2.5 S (model) and driven it for the pass 8 years. I bought it brand new off the lot with 4 miles on the dash (as you'll see on the dash, it still has relatively low mileage) .Currently adding mods incrementally and just discovered that it has "Manual Shift" mode like its 3.5 counterpart but the 2.5 doesn't come equipped with paddle shifters at all (owner's Manual doesn't mention that the 2.5 actually has Manual Shift Mode in which it does!). I figured out how to access/unlock Manual Mode after extensive research i.e. service manuals. I temporarily wired up two" pushbuttons " to the respective paddle shift jst connector on the PCB. Thanks to my wiring skills that I acquired from modding arcade fight sticks, I was able to achieve what probably hasn't been done anywhere in this country (USA) for this exact car. If it wasn't for my love of fight sticks I would've paid a premium for something I can do myself. Currently waiting on my actual paddle shifter kit (stock). It's going to be a blast putting this together Voooom! Voooom!! This car is going to be pretty cool once I'm done with it. Pics coming soon...any questions please ask!! ;)...soooo stoked

(This is the back the (gauge cluster) combination meter "Connector M26". Terminal pins "50 and 51" are for shift down and shift up. I wired the buttons to the pins in these terminals in the M26 connector...and presto)
Now I can granny shift in my 2.5 S L33 hahaha!!
