    Nice to see some aftermarket guys are really on the ball, responding fairly quickly.

    The hubs on the Micra are 60mm, so you need to source 60.1mm hub rings. The .1 is the clearance that allows you to get the rings over the hubs.

    If you buy hub rings that are 60mm (and they...

    To date, none of the after market coil overs provide the mounting tab for the front sway bar.

    A great idea using the Plasti-Dip, wish I had thought of it when I painted my spoiler.:(
    I like the front ''V'' and rear badge in the Plasti-Dip, not so sure on the Nissan logos and fuel cap though.

    I have only had this situation a couple times in personal cars, but I have seen the exact scenario played out scores of times in a company truck, where you have a better view of what's going on.

    Yep it can be...hard. With the Micra though, there is a ton of head room to work with to get it out of the way. Obviously pads would have to be made for certain spots too.

    My own experience:
    1) Brake fluid will last the lifetime of the car as long as long it does not become contaminated somehow.
    2) Clutch fluid: Ditto.

    Well, if your car did not vibrate before, and it does with new the wheels on...that is a pretty good indicator something is up with those wheels. I would get them checked for damage and balanced.

    Lug Centric, means that the lug nuts will centre the wheels properly. Doesn't hurt to add the correct hub rings though. (60.1mm ID)

    My grill is holding up great. No rust on it...something I was worried about because even though it is galvanized, it is pretty cheap material.
