    2012 Micra owner (called March here in Mexico)

    Hello,
    I am Paco, a 2012 Micra owner, its called March here in Mexico but it is a K13 nevertheless. I have the Sense trim, plus I added some features such as Versa exclusive steering wheel and versa exclusive 16" rims with toys tires. I added the fog lights and swapped out the lights' and wipers' levers for one that had the fog light switch in it so it is still OEM. I also added some aluminum pedals which facilitate heel and toe and grip on the pedals, I added a front and rear upper strut bars, the antiroll bar from the SR trim, a weighted shift knob, Phillips LED stop, reverse, licenceplate lights, also LED fog and interior lights. I also got, painted and mounted the side skirts of the SR trim.
    It handles so much better now than before adding all the bars, but still I wish I could make it a bit more powerful. For now having more grip around turns is enough, but I am looking forward to changing more suspension components as well as adding more suspension braces.
    The strut bars were made by my brother. We spent like 50 bucks for all, and we still have enough material to make 2 more lower braces.

    oh, forgot, my 2012 sense Micra has 152 thousand kilometers and hasn't had any issued whatsoever, I bought brand new in June 2011 here in Mexico, I have abused it, mistreated it, but, I do the proper maintenance way before the due time, and I replace anything that needs to be replaced. This car has 10 more years in it. I will replace the alternator and starter sName:  8617F02B-D64D-4530-BB0C-D84D195D254E.jpg

    Welcome to the forum, Paco!

    Nice mods on your March. I like the custom work.

    Best part:

    152 thousand kilometers and hasn't had any issued whatsoever
    Congratulations - you obviously take very good care of that machine. (I don't know anyone who has changed their starter or alternator as preventive maintenance!)

    Do you know anything about plans for K13/K14 production at Aguascalientes? This year Nissan Canada stopped importing the K13 from Mexico for sale here. No mention of the K14.
