    The Mirage is not a good platform for performance mods, especially in the west. Apparently there is an "okay" modding community in ASEAN countries, but those people rarely stray onto the English...

    Ah cripes this wasn't what I thought it was. Bummer.

    So I guess just leave it up on eBay. Thanks for the additional info, though.

    ETACS Interface Software in 2021

    I had been using the "ETACS Decoder" software for programming the computer in my Mirage the handful of times I had gone in to mess around with it over the last year or so. It's the paid, token-based...

    Having just looked for cars in my area yesterday, it would seem the stock shortage is still in full swing. Within 500 miles of me, the cheapest new cars are still Sparks and Mirages, but the cheapest...

    I get the fuel saving aspect of the Stop/Start systems but I'm still skeptical of the potential wear induced on the individual engine components. An extra tank of gas every 50K miles is way cheaper...

    Sorry to see your daox bar broke so soon - mine was the same, though.

    UltraRacing makes a sway bar as well, which might even be stiffer than daox's. The welds are sloppy as hell, and the...

    I moved to the Seattle area after growing up in the east coast rust belt (Pittsburgh, PA). The Pacific Northwest is like paradise for cars in comparison. I had a buddy come out to visit, and he was...

    Well, tbf, the USA was basically the only advanced country to not be completely bombed flat/economically ravaged following WWII, so there was a bit of an advantage there... Also all the German rocket...

    Sorry, I can't comment on the fusebox, but I just wanted to give you a HUGE warning on that ionizer.

    Pretty much all of those ionizers work by producing ozone, which is extremely destructive to...

    I've read into importing a tiny bit because of things like the Suzuki Jimny, and based on my very limited experience and understanding, unless it's more than 20 years old, you're SOL. If it's newer...

    Automatic Belt Tensioner

    With the cold weather starting to settle in, on particularly brisk mornings my car has started to squeak for a few seconds until it warms up a little bit. My guess is that this is from the serpentine...

    The question's already been answered here, i.e. yes, the pump may have shut off prematurely and also, yes, modern vehicles all have a decently-sized reserve that doesn't register on the gauge.

    Legit question/comment since you brought up lights here:

    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...

    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...
