    Thanks for the stats, that's really interesting. I will be adding a S auto to the garage very soon, just picked it up on Wednesday night and got a couple of pictures near Canmore. Seems to be a rare trim on the forums.

    This little car has a pile of acceleration. And the HR16DE loves to rev hard. If you read the owner's manual, it gives suggested "maximum" speeds in each gear. And I believe 1st gear is 40km/h. Which is absolutely monsterous in this car. Has anyone besides me felt the rev-limiter yet? If you push it hard in first, you'll hit it once, and you'll be addicted to keeping those revs on the high side. Yeah, it is hard on the car, but my warranty is long gone anyways. lol

    Driving an automatic completely change my driving style. I went from a fast performance driving style, to a slow and eco-friendly one. It's too damn tempting to drive performance style with a manual.

    Yeah, I'm a nerd for the stats.

    And... we're already up to 86 Micras since last week when I posted the update.

    I will be adding a S auto to the garage very soon, just picked it up on Wednesday night and got a couple of pictures near Canmore. Seems to be a rare trim on the forums.
    Congrats! And yes, seems more people go for the SV automatic a lot more than the S automatic.

    New garage stats update!

    We're at 126 Micras/Marches in our Micra Garage.

    Here are the fresh stats:

    (Note: the numbers refer only to the Micras & Marches.)

    Transmissions (out of 124, 2 not stated)


    • 83 (67%) manual transmissions, up from 55
    • 41 (33%) automatics, up from 27


    Interestingly, the ratio of manual vs. automatic barely changed since the last update (less than 1% change).

    Micra Trims (out of 118 trims indicated)


    • 44 (38%) Micra "SV" trim, up from 23
    • 38 (32%) Micra "S" trim, up from 29
    • 34 (29%) Micra "SR" trim, up from 26
    • 1 (1%) "Tekna" trim
    • 1 (1%) "XVD" trim


    The big news here is the SV contingent has jumped from last place to first, unseating the 10 grand tin can clan!

    Trim vs. Transmission (where indicated)


    • "S" Micras: 33 (89%) are the base car (manuals), up from 83%!
    • "SV": 25/44 (57%) are manuals
    • "SR": 18/34 (53%) are manuals
    • Tekna: 100% manual!


    March Trims (4 trims indicated. 2 not indicated.)


    • 2 March "Advance" trim
    • 2 March "SR" trim
