    There is a red one here in Mission/Abbotsford. I saw it parked at the liquor store the other day but was in to big a hurry to stop and harass the driver. I also took a photo the other day but have wiped my phone since.

    Spotted a black SV in my town this evening. The drought is over.

    It was from Cornwall Nissan, the same dealer that loaned me the cars for the head to head manual vs. automatic fuel economy comparison.

    I actually turned around to get a pic, but it was gone.

    Out and about on Saturday I saw two:
    This black SV was on Hwy1 near Boundary, and I thought it might have been the Black Cheap, but alas no, it was driven by a shaky old man in a purple windbreaker:

    Then later in the day in Surrey I saw this SV w/ Convenience, driven by a youngish vaguely Asian-looking fellow who smiled at me, but did not roll down his window to chat. He had passengers and maybe didn't want to be a huge internet car dork at me:

    edit: also at the courthouse this a.m. was a red modo coop SV w/ convenience, but it was not exciting enough to take a picture of.

    That totally makes sense that they would be putting the Micra in car sharing programs. Cheap to buy & run.

    Only people in & around Van (or who spent enough time there) would know what you meant by modo coop.

    The drought has turned into a downpour?

    I saw a grey SV automatic with Quebec plate parked on a street in town this weekend. (Didn't have phone... no photo, doesn't count!)

    It might have been a rental though: it had little bar code stickers in the corner of the windshield and rear door quarter window.

    Walking around my neighbourhood yesterday. The more I see these cars, the more right they look to me. Which is weird, because before I started noticing them, they just looked weird to me.
