    I was thinking about this today.

    OEM Recaros from a 2015 Lancer have the same built-in side airbags. How standardized is Mitsubishi's seat hardware? Would one be able to swap a Lancer seat into a...

    For anyone interested, a gauge cluster swapped from a UK Space Star into a USA Mirage does indeed work. Mostly plug and play.

    I say "mostly" because the fancier Euro-spec eco gauge doesn't seem to...

    I got this kit from Amazon when I got my new Maxxim Maze wheels. I'm pleased with it. Just threw the security bit in the little faux leather bag with the rest of the tire changing equipment so it's...

    Believe it or not, your earlier review videos on your Mirage (and the upgrades you did to it) actually heavily influenced my decision to purchase one of these vehicles. So, thanks for another great...

    This is what I miss about my busted-ass old Subaru. Could go to pretty much any junker near me and find a ton of parts for it for super cheap, with any trim level you could think of. Seems these...

    Only tangentially related, but if you are worried about breaking the ground truth of odometer accuracy and thus the universe itself, it's worth pointing out that you can make the odometer read...

    Another post with tons of useful info!

    I would just like to echo what Top_Fuel has said here w.r.t. speedometer readings. While you can go and mess with things in ETACS, the difference is so small...

    It's just displaying the information provided by the ECU, I doubt there are huge differences. If there are, it's probably something you can set in ETACS. These are globals cars, after all.

    But, in...

    The gauge clusters are actually slightly different. I like the eco gauge on the UK model as opposed to the single light on the US version. So the board and LED positions would be slightly different...

    Did anyone ever figure out how to adjust the odometer on these things? I am asking because I would love to swap in the UK-style cluster with chrome gauge garnishes. Looks much nicer than the one in...

    Just seeing this thread now. I got out of the Bay Area earlier in the year because with the cost of living down there - I did not see a sustainable future.

    I am currently looking for new mirrors for my Mirage. These things are so expensive anyway, I figure I may as well go ham with them. I would like to find the wing mirrors that are power adjust,...

    Yeah, I'm "that guy" who actually read the manual cover-to-cover after getting the car, and saw the section on this "average fuel economy" tracker. As people have pointed out, there is an A/B option,...

    Yeah, anytime you get something painted it's gonna be $$$. Crossing my fingers I never get into any bad scrapes.

    Good luck with your junkyard search. I'm planning on making a 4+ hour drive this...

    TBH, I can see why you would want to do an engine swap on this car, but the reality is that not many other people have done it before (esp. in the USA) and the make/model is not that popular (esp. in...

    This is something I wanted to post about earlier in the thread, but what I had experienced was a different error code and I didn't want to send you on a wild goose chase.

    Yeah, this is normal.

    The engine revving higher (and, perhaps unknown to you, eating more fuel) when cold is the ECU attempting to heat up the engine as quickly as possible. There are many reasons...
