    I now have the need to put fender flares and a lift kit on a Mirage so I can fit those tires on one. It'd make quite the funny looking little offroad car.

    One of my regrets was putting about $3800 into rebuilding the top-end on a 3.5L Intrepid because the timing belt gave up (the rest of the car was immaculate and rust-free so I felt justified), then...

    Must be some really good breakfast!

    I'd totally be interested in a group buy as well.

    In theory the lights should turn off once you've replaced the damaged sensor and the ABS controller is getting a solid reading from it -- If the light is still on there should still be a DTC that can...

    Wrap it in a matte vinyl so it doesn't show wear and scratches? :D

    No really, microfiber cloth and alcohol or water only does the trick. Mine is usually covered by said microfiber cloth since...

    I'm a huge fan of his videos as well, and when I saw the line for the Mirage, I knew the video would crop up here. It's very interesting how even with the facts stacked so much in favor of the...

    These are very encouraging words as I always wondered why I can just barely break 45MPG in my CVT Mirage regularly, I was thinking I was really a lead foot driver!

    I have 15% all around and a band of 15% across the top of the windshield. It's illegal (must be >35% on the front side windows in Arizona), but nobody will bother you for it specifically, unless...

    That's actually a really common thing for almost all new cars both with and without dedicated LED DRLs. Some vehicles have been using dual-color LEDs to combine the DRL and turn signal into the same...

    Arizona doesn't really have weather beyond "clear, hot and dry" so I only have my headlights on when it's actually dusk/dark. The LED running lights that the GT trim has aren't really that bright...

    Arduinos are great for when you need a lightweight device that lives on the CANBUS permanently (say, to drive a little 1" OLED display for showing a custom gauge/data). For exploring/debugging...

    Realistic mods? Manual option, performance parts (suspension/engine/gearing) for the GT trim. Adaptive cruise control with stop and go would be neat too (I hate people that can't hold a constant...

    That's still good news to hear -- it's not just another snake oil device that blinks lights, but actually is doing something to improve FE.

    I looked on Volo's site earlier, looks like they now...

    That's pretty good to hear. I'm very curious to see your results when using the actual economy settings. It sounds like there's nothing but positive gains coming from this miracle device.

    That's neat that the Climate Control will be standard across the board. I wonder if the LE trim is replacing the ES trim in name only (as in specs are all the same)?

    It was pretty dusty that day, I don't really do anything special to keep it shiny besides auto carwashes. I have buffed it before though and it does get a nice mirror finish.
