my gold k12 1.2 blog

I´ve been wanting for some time a blog with updates on the mods, fixes and upgrades that i do to my car. This is a work in progress and there are a LOT of things still to do this car.

So, i got this car in march 2022 as my first car with 110.000km. Did some basic manteinance to it when i got it (oil, filters, tires, etc). Car worked flawlessly and been a really great fun daily driver since.
Pd: Sorry for the sketchy english ;)

Noticed when cleaning for the first time the engine bay that the air duct was missing. I didn´t think too much about it for some time. But i saw through the obd that the intake air was really hot (40+ºC in 15ºC weather)

Only thing i could find was broken OEM duct on my local junkyard, got it for free. So, i bought an adaptable tube and made it work.


And for good measure i wrapped in aluminium tape the underside of the tube and the filter box to reflect some of the heat coming from the exhaust manifold.

Also, i deleted all the intake silencers. Now it makes a lot of cool induction noises!

First mod! installed eibach pro kit lowering springs. Overall review, they are really easy to install (if you have the right equipment), cheap and the micra now handles like a kart!

Only thing i didn´t like was the ride height. It didn´t lower the car as much as i wanted to. If you only want to improve handling is highly recomend it.

While some hard driving my brake discs overheated and got warped. I also noticed that the brake pads were really thin, so i bought new brembo discs and new bosch brake pads. Maybe i should rebuild the rear drum brakes soon.
