    Pre-2004 micra? If it's four door you can get roof bars, would be a nice work vehicle :thumbsup:

    The later ones look a bit naf to me, a bit feminine

    You can get a massive pole in there though, like 8ft down into the footwell, can't do that in most bigger cars!

    If I was trad I'd certainly consider a four door micra with roof bars, easy to park, cheap to insure and run...

    I'd miss my van though

    I have a Berlingo Multispace, it's a brilliant all round vehicle and it's a car. Can fold one or both seats down when required? Not even got a tank in there just use backpacks, poles with Aquadapters, using only Sureclean high pressure pole hose as my main hose (just dispensed with Microbore), I can get 300 litres in containers 2 backpacks, 2 poles, a trolley and all my tools and bits in it as there are loads of storage bins in these brilliant vehicles can earn £200 per day no problem and in a flash it's a family vehicle.

    I use a rover 25, not a small car exactly but small enough, i use a trolley on some parts of my round with 25l containers, i can fit x9 at a push but rarely use more than 4 as i trad the bottoms. Its a pain really which is why i still ladder most of my round.

    I am using an astra at the mo but since defecting to the dark side i definitely need a van
    150l of water makes a difference to the handling for sure
