    Oh la la! (as the French say). Your Mirage really kept you busy and looks very sporty indeed.

    Welcome and nice car you have there. What size speakers did you fit in the rear doors and was it hard to do?

    The savannah white mirage was asking for it. If only it didn't look so plain. The mirage was selling like pancakes here in the Philippines when it debut on November 2012, if I got the cool silver I probably wouldn't have considered the add-ons.

    Got to change my muffler last week, and I'd probably get a new resonator soon.

    On my wish list is a good aftermarket suspension kit and lowering springs for the mirage. I hope these will reach Manila soon. While waiting I'd probably work on a nice body kit set-up.

    Thanks! I owe the sporty look to our mirage. It's has a nice sharp and sleek look; doesn't look like something is going to herniate from our roof like in other subcompacts.

    Thank you! I was able to fit 16 cm speakers (here's a link to the exact model I installed: http://www.pioneer.com.au/au/product...674S/page.html). I think the difficult part of installing the speakers was dismantling the inside of the doors. I had these installed by the guys at the speakers shop so I didn't have to worry about the DIY stuff.

    Hey Doc, welcome to the forum!

    Those are nice looking alloy wheels. Are they really just 15"x5" or 15"x5.5"? I'd imagine the 195/50r15 tyres be too wide for the former.

    Hi Alpha One! Thanks for the heads up. Did my computations (it seems my rims are short by 0.14 inch). Might probably downsize the rubber soon (hope to find a swap deal on this).

    O BTW, Your post on the clutch engagement point was very helpful!
