hi, it is based on the K10 Micra AKA March ( with the front crossmember we all love to talk about ) and has got a 1000 cc turbo engine. a good one can sell for as much as £4500. not bad for a 20 year old micra. Mrs. columbo would love it. :D

Ha i could help laughing when it came in for a mot today i do feel sorry for the lad who has just brought the 206 thou. Rear lights changed to clear ones (rfr no reflector to rear) centre brake light changed to clear (rfr less than 50% working) fog light changed to clear (rfr white light and insecure) exhaust major leak of gases (not the big bore fitted but the centre pipe completly snapped in half) both front anti roll bar links excessive movement and both front wishbone bushes split and perished causing excessive movement. Front brake discs were the thickness of digestive biscuits and most of that was corrosion.

Then to top it off i now have to test a nissan figaro!!!
