After many months of being on this forum, I finally gave in and bought myself a mirage about 5 days ago
It's a blue SE 5 spd '17. It took a few days to get it delivered to the dealer but I'm really pleased with the car.
I've already installed the DE/ES side markers, and a factory center console.
I also ordered a slew of accessories to include: the Rockford Fosgate Sub, Blue Side Skirts, '15 Blue rear mud flaps, LED interior lighting, LED Daytime running lights (on back order), scuff plates, and side window deflectors.
I'm anxiously awaiting the dealer to call about the parts so I can go ahead and install them.
Also I'm planning on getting an alignment check at my first oil change.
