    The Kicks idea won't work. It uses a totally different intake manifold with intake manifold runners and a specific tune with the CVT to make those numbers.

    Just adapt to 1 1/4" like already mentioned. You've only got 100lb tongue and 1000lb tow but I woudn't recommend testing that limit.

    I have the Curt hitch and it was pretty easy to install. I...

    Even most cheap battery banks (especially dual usb port models) have a 1A port that won't charge a modern phone faster than it drains. Car tech is ancient for the most part and we have the...

    Cheap + manual transmission
    Port injection (no carbon buildup issues)
    Naturally aspirated

    2020 Versa Sedan 5MT

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this yet but it appears that the new 2020 Versa Sedan in the States essentially has the k14 Micra interior and the engine from the Kicks.

    However, the new...

    To piggyback off of this, its most likely a noise stemming from pad movement. Lube them accordingly and it'll be fine. Just make sure you don't get lubricant or grease on the rotors and pads faces....

    It looks and feels like the day I put it on there. Not a hint of any wear or tear yet. I've had it on for almost a year now. Definitely still recommend.

    Yup, it was sprayed. They force you to get the winter package and basic coating here. They do a **** job of applying both of those things to every vehicle that comes on the lot and are non-negotiable...

    That's very likely. My running average over winter was 8.0L/100Km... Cold plus idling all the time to warm it up.

    However, I do find the tradeoff pretty good in our little 5MTs between power, fun...

    It's definitely not a bad area to settle down in if you're at the right point in your career. The real estate there is a joke compared to anywhere out West (huge housing crisis in the Yukon too).

    I did some testing on my end the last two days since replying to this thread.
    It's been -5 to +5 here (all the wind bringing in some warmth from the Pacific).

    With modern synthetic oil, they say you can run 10,000KMs+ before changing it.

    I honestly hate that feature. One of the first mods was unplugging the wire that turns AC on automatically.

    I knew I couldn't be the only one! It has to be a design oversight. It happens consistently each winter (2nd winter with it now).
