    Legit question/comment since you brought up lights here:

    These days I'm trying to figure out if my eyes are just turning to **** as I get older, or if people's headlights are just super bright now...

    Thank you! Finally someone reasonable.

    Honestly, most of the time I try to stick around the speed limit. But it's the limit! The odd time I need to drive to work after not being able to sleep well...

    Armchair admiral over here (no experience with anything other than stock), so take this with a grain of salt, but:

    Based on specs of springs and spring rates I can find on sportier cars similar to...

    Eh, yes and no.

    Turns out, to change from MPG to km/l, you need to hold the gauge cluster button for 5 seconds. Holding the gauge cluster button for 2 seconds resets the recorded stats. So my idea...

    I desperately try to chat with other Mirage owners every time I see one. Unfortunately, it's not quite the same as motorcycle owners ("You meet the nicest people on a Honda!"). It seems a lot of...

    I don't think anyone here ever insinuated that this wasn't possible - in fact, multiple people posted example of towing far more without incident - myself included. The response was that this was...

    That is your right, friend. Choice is absolutely yours. What I said is pretty much the mood of the replies you are going to get - nothing more to be said. Only thing left to do is for you to go one...

    I mean... yeah. This is true of most modern cars, honestly. I love trucks, awesome vehicles, but in the vast majority of cases, the vast majority of the time, they are overkill.

    In any case, I'm...

    The real underlying question here is where the actual unit conversion is being done. You would expect it would be done by the ECU, with the gauge cluster just acting as a display (think: your...

    Dunno, mate. I told you everything I know. I also checked it at the pump.

    Pump supports it, and it's not like I drive hundreds of miles on a regular basis to be able to easily check. On a normal...

    I got a Honda Super Cub recently and have been riding that as much as possible because it's supposed to get 100-120 MPG. It's one of the most fuel efficient vehicles you can get. However, it has to...

    Added the side guard strips, bumper guard, and LED side markers to my car this weekend. I think the side guards help visually break up the side of the car a bit more, as it...

    Adding a hood scoop will probably end up actually increasing your coolant temperature.

    Your coolant relies on air flowing through your radiator to pull the heat away from it. Your idea of pulling...

    Wow, sounds pretty wild. Certainly nothing that I would do myself, I think, but it's cool that you have so much experience with bikes. I took a MSF intermediate course and one of the guys there had...

    I have about 8.5K miles on the car so far after a year of ownership. I recently bought a Honda Super Cub, so I only really use the Mirage for weekend jaunts anymore. At this rate, I will probably hit...
