So, I got rid of my k10 for a k11..........

All the things I dont like in a micra, facelift. colour coded bumpers and power steering :rolleyes: Looks like a clowns car :( lol
It was too good to miss though. It is a 1 litre 'inspiration' has 73k miles and 3 owners before me. Tested till 09/03/2014, very tidy and cost a mere £350.oo :D
I know y'all like pictures so heres some more......................



Interior not necessarily to my taste.........:oops:
Does come with a rather nice Pioneer CD player though :D


So have I done the right thing?? We'll see.................................
Thats it for now, hopefully more to come but its gonna be pretty much standard for a good while, so need to find a job :(

Ok, plans for the future. It will obviously be lowered at some point but not slammed, gonna concentrate on making it handle while still retaining a little comfort and the ability to get over speed bumps :) so lowering springs and some decent shocks rather than coilies or choppys :rolleyes:. I also intend fitting 14 or 15" alloys rather than wide 13's as I personally think a k11 pulls them off well, plus did the low and wide thing on the k10.
Anyways, I have picked a lot of stuff up from all you guys on here though I do have a lot to learn re: k11's so expect questions :oops:. Feel like I'm starting all over again now just please be patient regarding mods cos at present I don't have a pot to piss in :(.
Cheers everybody ;)

looking swift this car ! didnt catch if its a one'er or one point three'er
 
Only think i dont like about the car is the interior, lucky mines is just a normal grey colour, everything else is easly changeable :D

Nice, clean looking car. Looking forward to seeing it when the mods start :)
Its very very tidy, front crossmember and sills are all mint (not polo mint cos they have holes) Don't hold your breath on mods though, funds are seriously tight!:(
 
Sounds like you had a real bargain with that then, and a rather funky looking interior too :p Yeah times are hard, but good luck with it anyway!

Well I must grudgingly admit that for a standard car I am seriously impressed with ride and handling :rolleyes: Always room for improvement though ;)

Not happy with a grandad looking car I had to do something about it. First job, de-sticker and de-bumpstrip...

also fitted Nissan wheel trims. Looking better already :). Next job, get rid of the chrome...

Nostrils removed for painting...still needs more...
Nostrils and badge sprayed satin black, SR alloys added courtesy of my nephew Josh, aka ox11ey :D

I know it needs lows but thats gonna have to wait, in the meantime............

Black headlight mod


Having had one on my k10 previously my daughter insisted that I have a 'rising sun' filler cap so........


So this is how it stands so far, in desperate need of rims and lows...........hopefully soon :D

Good luck, K11C for the win. Getting rid of that horrid chrome is a must though. I worry about de bumpstripping... I'd worry about the doors too much...
 
Iv noticed that on my car atleast the bump strips sit too low to stop the door as the door sticks out above the bump strips? :L
 
Pointed this out to my dad but im not allowed to do it yet as i dont have a job :L currenty sponging off him for the insurance ect so thats his rules until i can afford to pay for it myself xD

Are the bumpstrips hard to get off? I just worry that yet more paint will come off with them!
I used a hairdryer to soften the adhesive, once you get part of the strip lifted you can aim the stream of hot air behind it and they come off real easy. Then finish off with a caramel wheel, don't even attempt to use tar and glue or anything like that cos you'll be at it for hours! ;)

Caramel wheels are also known as toffee wheels or a 'stripe removal disc' if you get it from machine mart ;)

to get the strips off man up and pull them off no damage will be done, to get the glue off use a toffee wheel
