    Belated welcome to the forum, Rupert!

    Which engine in yours? 1.2L?

    How long have you owned it?

    Hi thanks! Yep mine is the 1.2 3 cylinder Naturally Aspirated - have owned it since the November before last so about a year and a half - though before then it was my brother's who got it new in 2014 (He replaced it with the 1.2l Supercharged Micra which had a bit more grunt for the motorway driving he now does).

    Cool story.

    Have you owned any other triples? How does it compare to what you had before?

    Sorry I can't help you there - this is my first car! Though I can compare it to the Hyundai I20 in which I learnt... the Micra is miles ahead, the gear lever in the Hyundai felt very synthetic and the pedal feel was appalling and also had a very annoying rev building feature when you let out the clutch (though kind of helpful for learners I guess but I just found it annoying!). In contrast, I actually think the Micra drives really nicely, there's plenty of feel in the steering, barely any torque steer and great pedal feel - yes there is quite a bit of body roll but it's the enjoyable kind - not the heavy boat kind! So yeah, I'm very happy with it - great fun on nice driving roads and being not that powerful, you really have to work for the power and can use all of it while staying on the right side of the law

    Thanks for the info.

    Nissan brought a 1.2L supercharged Micra to the States a few years back (OK, maybe 4 or 5 years back) for journalists to try out.

    But in the end all the Micras on this side of the pond came with a 1.6L four. And the U.S. never ended up getting the Micra at all.

    Yeah I noticed that! Interesting how the different regions of the world get different specs... I have ridden in my brother's and I was surprised that you could actually hear the supercharger very well! Pretty addicting and a shame you don't get it!
