    New car owner, silly question

    Oh, snap! He looked too deeply into matters beyond his comprehension, and learned too much. The powers that be must have silenced him... I guess we'll never know what that wire was for. Perhaps it's safer this way.

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    I must concur. That's a seriously unimpressed-looking micra... Nice photograph, though!

    K11 Automatic Gear Selector - Can It Be Modified?

    Thanks for the encouragement, lads! I'm going to investigate my options. If I figure something out, I'll be sure to take lots of pics and post a walkthrough or something. Yeah, that's what I'm aiming for! Practicality is nice, but you can't beat something that looks cool. If OEM gear exists...

    Welcome Pack

    It's a shame, because forums are a more powerful platform than FB. You have all the sweet formatting options, for one thing! Facebook has the convenience factor, though. That's the tricky bit. FB and Twitter might be convenient, but forums have their attractions. They tend to develop their own...

    Welcome Pack

    I'd have thought that the admins would have weighed in by now. I was going to purchase my club membership this weekend, but if the club leadership isn't active then there doesn't seem to be much point.

    New car owner, silly question

    Sounds like we have a mystery on our hands. It would really help if you could post some pictures! My curiosity has been piqued.

    K11 Automatic Gear Selector - Can It Be Modified?

    Before anyone says anything, I know automatics are pathetic. And I know I'm never going to be able to make it go fast. But this is what I'm stuck with (I have a learning difficulty that makes manual driving impractical), and I still want to pimp my whip! So, my question is: does anybody know...

    Fitting seats from another make of car

    I know, I was just being cheeky :p Seriously though, let us know how the swap goes. Someone else on here tried to swap a set of leather Primera seats into his Micra, and they turned out to be so ludicrously oversized that he couldn't properly operate his gear stick. I want to see if you have...

    Fitting seats from another make of car

    If you're only getting seats from the scrappy, you might as well just get a new set of Micra seats! That'd be a relatively simple swap, I bet.

    Early shift this week. Only managed to snatch about five hours of sleep, too. This will be interesting.

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    @Andy5077 I genuinely did a double-take at your picture. At first glance, I thought you were using ordinary clothes pegs to hold the trim in place! Anyway, it looks cool as. I'd love to know where you got your hands on genuine Nissan bits this day and age... Was it a lucky ebay find?

    MSC Wiki?

    A wiki wouldn't "dispense" with any of the positive aspects of MSC forum membership. On the contrary, working together on a wiki is usually a great way to bring an online community closer together. It wouldn't replace the forums, either. I'm a member of Reddit, and many subreddits operate their...

    MSC Wiki?

    Cheers for the support, lads. I'll wait until next payday and I can buy myself a full club membership. Makes me more accountable, since the club will have all my real information and I can be subjected to sanctions if I turn out to be a colossal ####. Then I'll see about getting an account set...

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    I spotted "my " K11 for sale at a local used car dealership. It's a pre-facelift 1.0 litre CVT model, with only 30K miles on the clock. Frankly, it would be cheap at twice the price. Immaculate little car. I've rang the dealership and will be heading down there to buy it at 3PM. I know I...

    Bugger! :(

    MSC Wiki?

    I've been a forum member for a couple of days now, and from what I can tell so far the club represents a wealth of knowledge and experience with almost every facet of Nissan Micra modification and maintenance. An almost overwhelming amount, in fact. It seems to be a fair bet that no matter what...

    Any Radio Hams ever fitted a rig in a K11?

    Around my way, C19 is full of older gents talking about dogs, politics and pigeons. There are a load of pigeon coops near my house, and there seems to be some sort of weird correlation between pigeon fancy and CB radio. C26 is the Clio crew and their Wigan Pier CDs. A few of the other...

    Any Radio Hams ever fitted a rig in a K11?

    I see what you mean, now. Thanks for the tip! Yeah, but there are other attractions to amateur radio. Talking to the International Space Station, for one! Still, I seem to be straying further and further from OP's topic, so I'll drop out of the thread for now. Mostly because I think it would...

    Any Radio Hams ever fitted a rig in a K11?

    How would that work? Would the proper UHF rig basically act like a repeater for the little handheld? If so, I'd probably need to be a licensed radio ham for it to be legal, right? I've been toying with the idea of doing my Foundation license with the local radio club. It's just a matter of...

    Bens K10. The Second Micra

    I've just stumbled across this, and ended up reading through the entire thread. This is an awesome project, and the amount of love (and dosh) that has gone into this little car is actually quite inspiring. I hope you keep the updates rolling in, man!
