    2007 K12 Micra C+C Automatic

    Some things drive you mental. Lowering my car last year did me in. Spent a fortune. Had to put original springs back on. Sometime later, someone said I should have had different size/adjustable drop links fitted as well, when lowering. I've tucked the thought away, as quite a few mechanics said...

    You may well have identified the issue then, the steering box. I had a look at previous posts, one was similar, and a replacement steering box sorted it. Would be good if you got one from a low mileage one?

    That's ones I had and sold to a c+c owner. The c+c around the corner from me had same ones. Looks like that's what the early 1.6 had.

    Sorry, you are correct. Looks like 1.4 has 175/60/15. The older 1.6 had the 185/50/16

    I'd take yours to a suspension specialist to get it checked out.

    I also had entire suspension replaced prior. Had it lowered by 35mm with eibachs. Bloody horrible/harsh ride, so had it raised back up.

    I replaced mine last year. There was a c+c just around corner from me. Exact same spec wheels as mine. I didn't like ride, so changed. Asked the owner what ride was like, she said very comfortable. I put it down to the c+c being heavier.

    Pretty sure yours should have the 185/50/16, as well as mine. I replaced mine with 185/60/14. Sold my originals, they were immaculate, to a C+C owner, as direct replacements for his scruffy ones. Something is wrong with your set up, to have fractured the springs. They rarely brake.

    If your wheels àre incorrect, it could throw out the suspension geometry. Fractured springs sounds like something isn't right with the set up.

    The standard wheels give a comfortable ride.

    Hello, I don't think you have the correct wheels. I think they should be 185/55/16, same as the 160sr.. The circumference of yours would be similar, but not sure about the offset, if they are not standard, which might give you issues.

    No cost air intake mod for 160sr

    Exhaust and half intake removal made a noticeable difference. Like waking it up. Was advised a sports catalytic converter would improve it further, but didn't fancy cost. Anyone tried one?

    No cost air intake mod for 160sr

    You may already be aware. Had a sports exhaust fitted, and a kandn filter fitted. Took off air intake scoop, and the first half of long intake arm. Left with air box, and half wide duct ending halfway in engine bay never got around to fitting a Megan scoop and new ducting. Makes a big...
