Could you order a top spec Micra with a manual transmission on-line?

I don't know about online, but most dealers will special order a car for you. As long as they make money on the deal, they don't care.

I don't think so - the combo is no longer shown on the website or brochures. It was up to last year.

Rich guy: I want a manual transmission swapped into my 2018 Micra.
Customizer: How about 20s (Ha!), a custom paint job, a turbo, and gull wing doors?
Rich guy: Shut up and take my money!

[Then he never drives it]
