    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.

    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.

    Maybe try plasti dip. 25 bucks for a can, 3 bucks roll of tape and is reversable !

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

    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.

    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?

    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.
