So between snow tires and a $378 blockheater there went any savings. Why wouldn’t they at least put it in the option so a person would know it’s not standard anymore?
    I paid $235 for my block heater, harness(OEM) and install.

    Add this to the other items deleted for 2017. I am thinking of the cargo cover and the sun visor extensions.

    Cargo cover got removed as well. Dealer wanted $200 for a new one.

    You can probably find a Micra cargo cover at a wrecker these days.

    That's what the plan is.

    the S didnt come with a cargo cover, you can make your own for 7 dollars-see my DIY--with dimensions-- soo proud!
    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    Covid 19...she up on blocks!!!
    OFF BLOCKS after 18 months...seems to run fine...started every month. Now approx 43K

    Luckily, my SR came with one before the "deletions" began.

    Where does the cord for the block heater start? Does it have a visible place of origin?
    I don't have one coiled up beside my battery (like these pictures show), but since I got my 2018 SV used, it could have been moved already (or maybe it doesn't have one!). I have looked around and I can't seem to find the cord but I don't want to buy an oil pan heater until I know for sure that I don't have a block heater already.
    I would be grateful for advice so that I can get things ready for winter

    You should check out this thread Kristie:

    https://micra-forum.com/showthread.p...tion-on-engine

    It is located on the battery side of the engine if you have one. The 2018 models don't have them normally unless the original owner had one installed. I put up a picture on that thread that may help you out.

    Thanks LikGeckos. I will need to take this picture outside with me so that I can match it up. I am hoping that I have one!
