    I installed some Carbon Fiber door sill guards.
    They're more show than function, but they look real nice IMO.



    those aren't more show than function. That part of the door on the last two cars I've had gets scratched up something fierce and is always one of the first places to rust. Any protection is good protection.

    Hey those look rad!! Where did you get those if you don't mind me asking? Were they a "Universal" fit type or were they specific towards the Mirage or another car? I may get those for myself. Nicely done! And I also agree that is a commonly beat up spot.
    2015 Mirage Base 5MT with A/C! Custom modified eBay roof rack, Auto Dynasty lowering springs, front fog lights (yet to be activated in ETACS) relocated License Plate, and much more to come!

    I was messing with you. Here the hippies get all pissy if they see soap on the ground. I can't wait to clay, polish, and seal the paint on both of mine

    Or I can let the dealer do it for $50 and if something goes wrong, I point Mitsubishi in their direction

    Universal. Yea I like the look myself.

    Long ones for front doors.

    Short ones for rear doors.

    Also installed some chrome/carbon fiber fender garnish made specifically for the Mirage. Subtle and different.

    Installed some Perry Craft Dynasport permanent 35" roof rails. I'll probably throw up a DIY in the future. I am pleased with look and results.
