    I thought about that yesterday after I mentioned it. When I get home today I'll edit this post with a few pics.

    That looks a lot like how I ran my setup, though I kept it 2" all the way and bought a smaller filter (I went all scientific and measured the surface area of the stock filter and got a cone one with...

    Just to chime in on original topic -- My dealership didn't do it but they'd shuttle me to work (about 2mi), then bring me my car when it was done. Shame they closed down about a month ago, now I...

    About 40mi roundtrip with a handful of stoplights, if I take the county road home. 48mi if I take the freeway. Both routes suck (freeway gets clogged up, specially on Friday, county road is...

    When I bought mine, both visors were discolored a weird pinkish color on one side. I thought it was because they might've left them folded out while it sat on the lot, but it was exactly 100% of one...

    That's neat that the Climate Control will be standard across the board. I wonder if the LE trim is replacing the ES trim in name only (as in specs are all the same)?

    That's what I've always had in mind. If I had the choice, I'd rather sideswipe the car to the right of me that's going closer to the same speed as me, than to hit something head-on that's going a...

    It was pretty dusty that day, I don't really do anything special to keep it shiny besides auto carwashes. I have buffed it before though and it does get a nice mirror finish.

    Yup. My fender bender involved the same corner, it wound up being almost $2800. Replaced the whole door which took them 2 weeks to just get one, and because of that they blend paint into every...

    Am I reading that screenshot from their FB page correct? 135HP/116 Torks just from a cam and E85? Or is that a flash too? Either way, that's intense... Wonder how much of a hit you're going to...

    I'm really curious too if you get to keep the fuel savings after it's relearned them. I'd like to know if there's a major gain in MPG by doing this as well.

    Likewise, I wonder if it works in the...

    Well, looks good to me. Ordered a set, once my car is back from the bodyshop I'll install them.

    According to Wikipedia, the Micra's 1.6L is the HR16DE, which is the same 1.6L in the US Versa Note and 2012+ Versa, so it sounds like if that's a stocked kit then you're in luck.
