    Not that your wheels are of a different circumference, they're just too cool and I want them.

    Yes, being able to disable traction control while driving was a pleasant surprise to me. European Mirages don't allow you to disable traction control at all (at least in certain EU nations).

    Wireless lock/unlock is disabled when a key is in the ignition.
    Also lockout prevention doesn't work if you lock the doors with door open; put keys in ignition; close the door.

    I discovered this the hard way and then realized that the drivers door was not the original and had the incorrect barrel lock. I had to break into my own car. Lucky the hardware store is within walking distance.

    Glad you got in. I learned something about my own car today reading your dilemma. I still find it odd that your 2nd key wouldn't manually unlock the driver's door?

    Edit my question: Other thread reveals the driver's door had been replaced, but not the door lock.

    You can add breaking into cars to your resume now!

    The Dutch Space Star has a 4-LED Econometer (3 green and 1 red LED), which switches off when the car is stopped, and the engine idling. But it also switches off when the engine is used as brake (when downhilling), and the rotational speed is above 4000 rpm.

    I find it kind of a quirk that only the driver door on my 2015 Mirage has a place to stick a key in. I always have to go to the driver door first, not matter what door I want to open.

    My wife has the key with the little buttons on it. I hate those and hate key fobs with buttons. The last time I had one I took the battery out of it. But would putting a key lock on three or more doors have made the car prohibitively expensive?
