Test drove one like that a few years ago, slightly older one.  Was a very strong engine for the size and genuinely impressive little car.  Didn't buy it because of an undiagnosed wheel balancing fault (it was £350) but I was very impressed and remain impressed with these Micras.

 

GLWTS!

I like K11 Micras. I've spent the last week driving them. I'd like to have had £500 spare for purchaseage but alas as always. My bank account says; No.

 

Good luck with sale Mr Grice (any relation to: GadgetGricey of this parish?)

The 1.3 is genuinely spritely. Back in 2003 I had a MK2 Golf GTi and my sister had a Micra 1.3. Around the doors, the Micra was brisker and much easier to use. It would only run out of legs over 50.

 

Great cars. Personally, I’d get a year’s test on it and bang it up for £795.

Did think about it but the idiot SORNed it I ain't risking my license because he's a test, if it doesn't sell I'll weigh it in for scrap, it's caused to many arguments over the years.

You can tax a car with no MOT now.

 

Not sure I’d bother, personally. But, from memory, MOT Tax and Insurance are all now mutually exclusive.

Pretty sure you can’t. You can tax a car without insurance but you get pulled up by CIE after a few weeks.

 

MOT is still required.

I will have a 1.3 K11 at some point in time as a city car, but the Streetshite is performing admirably at present. By the time it fails, there'll still be millions of the blighters left on the road, the ultimate cockroach the K11 if the tinworm doesn't get em.

 

But yes an MoT will make it more attractive and, er, inspire people to give it a whirl. GLWTS

The MoT runs out on my bike at the end of the month, but had to get new tyres for it, so attempted to tax it on line. Sucess! Last time I tried to tax a bike where the MOT expired before month end, I could not - new MOT was needed first.

 

Sorry for the thread derail - GLWTS.

Nooo! Anything but this. If it comes to it, I'll see what I can do but I'm already spreading myself too thinly plus out of work again = hardship.

 

As has probably already been said, you can insure a car and drive it to a pre-booked MoT and back home if it does/doesn't pass. I have done this many times without any problems (and without trade plates) good luck and hope this great little K11 fights to live another day. Never tried a 1.3 myself yet.

£500 to a shiter with no mot or you'll scrap it?

 

I'm heading to Leicestershire to weigh my cars in from now on ☺

 

To be fair to your lad at least he SORNED it, many wouldn't.

I would really like a 1.3 3-door like this, apparently it's not difficult to squeeze a bit* more than 75bhp out of them and there's no shortage of rally car hop up parts for the suspension and brakes etc. Just the 4 other cars to fix up and deal with in the meantime though, so I'll regretfully have to pass on this one, as lovely as it looks. Good luck with the MOT and subsequent sale, it would be a real shame to scrap it.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
