    Looks minty. Did you put the aftermarket wheels on it?

    Do you do anti-rust treatment for your cars? (Krown e.g.) Rust would kill your Micra before the kilometers!

    Not much driving indeed, I'm self employed and work from home, no commute... And no, I didn't get rust treatment for my cruiser and its one of the reason why I sold it. The rust was beginning to eat it away.. front fender, under the doors, usual pt cruiser rust problems. I also had problems with the rear suspension. I regret not getting rust proofing for the cruiser and told myself I would make the same mistake with my Micra. When I bought it my dealer had a special offer, 10 years of rust treatment for 600$ plus rust warranty...not a bad deal.

    Speaking of rust guys...Look at my mint 2010 Ford Transit that I use at work ! Honestly, I believe this is the worst truck EVER !
    Doors replaced (won't close), transmission replaced, electrical system serviced maybe 20 times for battery problems and countless bearings et direction parts replaced. Make me feel like in a Ferrari in my Micra !
