    It's been a while. Got married and that's been busy. Will be 2 years on the 30th.

    When I met her, one of my preliminary questions was what her dream car is.
    I'm happy to say that I've made her...

    I had an 03 rio base - without AC/PS.
    Good little car. Looks great too with my enkeis.

    Personally, I would do small minor updates first and see how you do.
    A few of these would include braided brake lines and some way to route fresh air to the brakes.

    I've seen other vehicles that...

    I love the updates and feel like anyone with a MOD should do updates - as needed.

    I dont really see the annoyance of changing the oil filter. The oil lip does a good job and I've changed other...

    The problem here is you should have bought the ES on your first round. That way, you have all the "conveniences" the ES provides - which makes owning it longer more appealing.

    She claims that the sound muffles music and she is unable to listen to music at fwy speeds.

    I honestly dont know how much I bought the UR rear swaybar but between that and the VW springs, I'll pay any price for if I get a 2nd mirage. Also, I was a HUGE skeptic about it's "free floating"...

    I think we're too biased for this discussion.

    I lost my bottom splash guard so I think my original one started wearing out faster - especially getting wet and all.

    IIRC replaced mine at 55k miles or so.
