    The 25 most popular Micra-Forum topics / threads of 2014

    I love year end retrospectives, so decided to do a bit of digging to see what was most popular on the forum this year. (And by "popular" I mean the number of times a thread has been viewed. And yes, that's just one way to skin a cat.)

    There are a few surprises, starting with #1! It shows you how important Google is... LOTS of people are evidently searching online for Micra discounts, and they're finding the original offer that was made by an Ottawa dealership on Micra pre-orders.

    Surprise #2 is MasterFocus' photoshopped Micra -- how the heck did that get up so high?!

    The rest of the list is a nice mix of owner reviews, stats/specs (presumably because they are common searches), modifications, and other discussions.

    Anyway, without further ado, here they are:

    I don't think it's bots, or I would think the other threads in that subforum would have elevated view counts too. It's an outlier! Can't explain it.

    I made it into the top ten! Yippee!

    Hey Darin, how about a guerrilla campaign to get the site more hits... get some small electrostatic stickers made up with the forum logo, mail 1/2 dozen or so out to us and we'll tag Micras we see around town.

    You actually see Micras around town?? I'm in the middle of a Micra drought here.

    Not a bad idea though. Suggestions on what to make?

    micra's are not as common as i hoped here in vancouver....but i followed a red one with SV trim part of my commute today!

    of course, we were all stuck in a traffic jam....but at least i got to oogle a hot red micra all that time.

    have yet to see another on the road here in Peterborough, although I have met a bartender who recently bought one. I just have not met her car.

    Went to the Laundromat tonight, and a Caspian Sea Micra parked next to me. It was my bartender friend!

    I see 'em on occasion, but i'm off work for a bit now so probably won't run into that many.

    The sticker idea may not be financially sound, it just popped into my head...if you had a small supply of electrostatic stickers (with the forum logo, say about the size of a tooney) in the glove box you could ''tag'' other Micras. The owner of the tagged Micra then might visit the forum and might pass along the tag too. Or maybe not...?

    I saw 4 in Montreal last week. Seems it is appreciated in large city here in Quebec. I think Nissan was right in guessing that most of the Micra are expected to sell here in Quebec. Since people have less money here and the cost of living is more expensive, we don't have as much to spend on a car. In Montreal I saw 1 white, 2 blue (different blue) and 1 red. I am sure there are many more that I have not seen as this was just a small trip in town. I don't see many of them on the suburb area where I live, beside the one across my street. With the gas price getting lower, maybe buying a smaller car will not be a priority any longer for some people.

    But it's a 2015 car, and I expect to see more in 2015.
