    Hello karl69 & Mimi and welcome to the garage.

    I like those wheels - they look great. It's a good color too.

    What are your thoughts on your new intake tube? Would you say it gives your Mirage more power?

    hi, i bought it from a local seller here in the phil and he told me that they fabricate the rubber cushion. specs, i dont know, its basically a rubber with a hole in the middle where the rod of the struts could fit. mirage have weak coils specially the rears (if not all, IMO). once i had 2 adults in the backseat and i bottomed out when i went over a speed bump. thats when i decided to buy first a cheap fix for the problem. the seller was the one who installed the cushion and basically he just inserted the rubber cushion inside the boot of the struts. installation just took 30 minutes

    the rubber cushion costs around 20$ only with install. benefit, it solved the bottoming out problem, its a cheap fix and buying a new pair of coils is still the best fix
