When a car is just done right, there’s that jolt that seems to travel directly from your eyeballs to your brain when you see it, causing you to mouth the word ‘whoa…’
Such is the case with STILLEN customer Alden Arneson and his 2011 Nissan Maxima SV Sport, taking advantage of almost every product STILLEN manufactures for the 7th Generation Maxima and showcasing what a cleanly modified Max can achieve to be.. and he’s not done yet! Alden worked closely with our dealer Revision Audio near his hometown in Hawaii to make his dream a reality.
Alden’s Maxima takes everything into account.. Full STILLEN polyurethane body kit, performance products including a cold-air intake and stainless catback exhaust system, suspension system featuring coilovers, sway bar and braces, and what most people seem to forget when building a high performance vehicle, a complete AP Racing big brake upgrade by STILLEN.

We asked Alden about his build, why he chose the Maxima, and what he has planned next, and here’s his thoughts:
I became interested in the maxima after I had seen the new body style. I loved how aggressive it looked. After I took it for a test drive, I was sold. At first, I told my self that I wasn’t going to mod this car. I previously owned a fully built Mitsubishi Galant. I was always into building something different. Needless to say, I got bored. I decided that I would just drop the car and be done with it.
Well, then came the rims. The addiction had started again. I began to look around for parts. I knew that STILLEN had been making Nissan parts for a long time. To my amazement, I found a whole bunch of parts for the Maxima. I knew that I had to have everything that was out there for this car. Fast forward about a year and the project is still going. My future plans include a full air bag suspension setup from AirRunner systems. A full custom audio setup is also in the works currently.
Just want to thank STILLEN for making awesome parts. I hope there are more in the works. I also wanna give a shout out to Revision Audio. They have pretty much built my car from the bottom up. Special thanks to Samson Mak, Derek Katayama, and Todd Oya for all of your help.
