    The 25 most popular threads / topics of 2016



    I love year end retrospectives. It's fun to look back and see what topics caught everyone's attention this year.

    (OK, so 2016 isn't quite over yet. But unless something truly amazing happens in the next week or so, the list is probably safe to post.)

    Notable: there was a LOT of interest in the revised 2017 hatchback and the G4 sedan. I think this just shows how much people were hoping that Mitsu would deliver certain improvements to the car. (It definitely improved.)

    Also notable: the 2nd most viewed thread was from an unhappy owner. Makes me wonder if that one got linked from other forums.

    Without further ado, here's the list of the top threads by views.

    Wow, a newb (me) posted the most popular thread for 2015. Guess I'll do my Stretch Armstrong impersonation and pat myself on the back. Lol
    By the way, anybody remember Stretch Armstrong?

    I love seeing all the modification threads. Great job guys!

    I hope by next year we'll have a turbo thread that hits this list!

    I may have one in my closet...right next to my Evel Kenieval stunt cycle.

    If it wasn't for #3 ($3500 Rebate on 2015 Mirages) I wouldn't be driving a Mirage right now!

    I wish they'd come out with a lot better rebate on the 17. Might just have to keep looking for a good deal on a 15 ES.

    I jumped on that $3500 rebate. Insanely good deal not to jump on. Glad my local dealership was still doing it. After everything, it came out to be $8900 out the door! Pretty sure they just wanted to get rid of their last 15' model on the lot though, haha!
