    I missed this earlier. The fact that the average age is 12.6 years, it would take owners like you to make that happen.

    Mine are 2017 & 2011 = 7 & 13 = 10 years average - I'm still a little below, but that will change in a few years.

    On a positive note - there's no new small car manual option (outside of the Miata) or small AWD SUV manual option to tempt me these days. It's easy to remain content with what I already have. Given today's pricing - I have lost all interest in new vehicles these days.

    I'm only here because White Bear Mitsubishi was selling brand new 2017 Mirage ES for $7,500 - $9,500 for most of that year. $500 military rebate, $500 VIP rebate, $500 loyalty rebate, & $500 financing incentive determined where your price fell. All that peaked my interest! Free delivery of my Mirage to my home sealed the deal!

    Man, Iím really sorry to hear about your accident. Glad youíre okay, though! When I had to deal with a similar situation, I ended up getting a decent payout for my old car because it was in good shape. If youíre in the market for a new ride, maybe check out some used cars while you wait for the insurance stuff to sort out. I found a great deal on a reliable car that way.

    I picked up my car today! I drove around for a few hours today and it feels great! However I did notice the panel covering the engine bay is loose lol.

    I'll have to go back to the bodyshop and get them to order some more parts.

    Looks good from here.

    How long was it in the body shop? Any idea what the insurance company paid to fix it?

    It looks to me like in that last picture, that black piece needs to be moved to fill the gap. And it looks like there's a shape on the body part for it to line up / mount to, in order to hold it in place.

    But yeah, the car looks real good!

    The plastic clips just seem to be broken. The one that goes into the hole won't stay put and the top one doesn't seem to latch onto anything. I think its just broken.

    Could be jobber fender. I see those pieces fall off all the time. The clip closest to the windshield kinda fits under the lip of the fender where the other one fits into a hole. They never want to snap back into place, you almost have to support the back of the fender while pushing that part into place or the part it fits into just bends back. That probably didn't make sense to you but it did to me.
