    Welcome to the forum, VE3BRJ!

    Hope you got a nice year-end discount for picking up a 2016 model.

    What car does your Micra replace?

    I just picked up my Micra last night. I got a great amount on trade-in for my 2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V. The Sentra was fast with 200hp, but the Micra has a more classic 1980s hatch feel. Like an old VW rabbit. I actually preferred going from a 6 to a 5 speed manual transmission.

    Looks good! My Dad was a "Ham" VE3CSM (passed now). Going to outfit it with a radio?

    Yup - like an old GTI. I had a bunch of old Rabbits when I was in high school. Or like an early 90's Swift GT, which we were talking about recently.

    Herbie...

    Going to get a number and some stripes?

    Very cool about your dad. I've been a ham since December 2015. I'm still a newbie. I've got a mobile 2 meter transceiver that I'm about to put in. The hatch space of the Micra is actually tall enough to store the mobile Motorola Mount antenna.

    The Love Bug is one of my most favourite racing movies. I feel that the Micra reminded me so much of the classic supermini class cars just like Herbie. It has a lot character and is going to be a classic of its own. And like wise they can hold their own in the Micra Cup races.

    Thank you. This is all factory and dealer included all except the side striping in the price:
    2016 Nissan Micra SR 5MT - Fresh Powder
    - Mirror Cover - Red Alert
    - Door Handles - Red Alert
    - Low Door Stripes - Black with Red Stripe
    - Rear Hatch Finisher - Red Alert

    I'm thinking of doing the Rear Roof Spoiler in black. Dealer quoted me $275 for that. I've also got the Micra All Weather mats but just ordered some Weathertech mats this evening.

    This was my list for my Micra that I'd like to do in order of priority and (of course cost overtime)

    1. Weathertech Mats - done
    2. Spoiler paint black
    3. MIA (ITG Intake)
    4. Coretek Exhaust
    5. Endless Brakepads
    6. Nismo S-Tune Suspension

    I'm liking that Tow ring mod in another thread
