    Only mods I am considering is a wheel/tire upgrade. I am wondering if 15" wheels (p195/50R15) will fit on this car since I have a set already with uni-lug 4 bolt pattern.

    Fog lights might be an option later down the road, but I am pretty much going to leave it stock for now.

    I don't use my fog lights as much as I thought I would.

    I wish I could run the led drl at night with the headlights. They got a nice glow to them. Early in the am when no one is on the road I run the drl instead of the headlights. Saves energy.energy = mpg

    very nice ride! I kind of envy your blue Mirage! I'm picking mine at the end of the month but it's black, 15 wheels with Navigation. No RDL sadly

    Much like me. I've always been cash and carry. I was very nervous about car payments. However after struggling my whole adult life, after grinding away 7 days a week for 14 years, I finally was blessed. I made it to a big time high risk high paying gig with a hazmat tanker company.
    I now net North of 1200 a week every week, and pay uncle same between 6-900 a week in taxes.
    Even with the high expense of Boston, both payments only equal 12% give or take of my net income. I hope you find a blessing this year, cause honestly I've been to Ohio and seen how much the economy there has been hit. Plus.. I like the mullet. I'm fat and bald... Sigh.

    Hello andrefsbispo and welcome to the forum. Be sure to make a garage entry when you ger your Mirage, tell us a bit about yourself, and include some photos.
