Well I looked at it ;) - but I hesitated because I just don't know what the insurance implications are of fitting a different capacity engine.

"Has it been modified"

Yes it's had a BX 1.9 petrol engine fitted to replace the original 1.6

"Was it fitted professionally?"

Ermm....

I suspect they wouldn't pay out, but don't even get me started about how cr*p the insurance game is.

Oh all right then... Fine for driving uninsured: 3 points and average fine of £200.

Cost per annum for 17 year old male to insure a Micra: £2000.

Penalty for mistreating your dog: Up to £20,000 fine and a year in prison (no, really).
