Thread: 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage ES (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    2015
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage ES
    Sapphire Blue
    CVT
     
    Details

    Went from just having the Eibach lowering springs since the summer of 2016 to Godspeed Project coilovers. Made a world of difference in handling. The Eibach springs were good for the first year, but the factory rear shocks could not keep up and were completely shot after 2 years. Full review of the Godspeed coilovers coming soon.

    Wheels are finally installed. I have to wait until next weekend for the springs and rear sway bar since it was just too cold this weekend. With the new wheels/tires and strut tower brace it already feels so much better.

    Nice! Do you have a thread on your audio?

    Does the side panel at the botom of each side provide any protection against mud, rocks and such or only for look?

    It's part of the exterior appearance package. It is just for looks.

    No I don't have a thread on the audio. I am really liking it. I could not deal with those factory speakers. They were so weak. I like to actually hear the bass and feel it a bit.

    What model radio did you install? Did you include anything like backup camera, navigation? I've seen some pretty nice radios that look like a good fit, or even the Clarion unit made for the Mirage.

    I have this head unit...

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UH4IL9Q?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailp age_o06_s00

    With these speakers front and rear...

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o02_s00

    And this small bass tube in the trunk...

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SKIM6SS?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailp age_o08_s00

    It does have navigation that works really well. It sounds great now as well. The only thing that I would do now is upgrade the bass tube to a 12" instead of 8". The 8 inch sounds really good but because it is only 8 inches it can't produce certain types of lower bass. I am not looking for anything that will be heard a block away but I do want to hear every part of whatever music I am listening to.

    Oh and this is what I purchased for the dash...
