    Second ever Ontario meet! Met up with strawboss (Ottawa)

    I think I just took part in the second ever Mirage meet in Ontario??

    [The first one was when I stalked/chased down one of the two local Mirage owners in my little city a couple of years ago! ]

    I was in the Ottawa area yesterday, so Strawboss and I arranged to meet in the afternoon for an hour and a half and compare notes on the 2017 G4 sedan I'm currently driving (loaner from Mitsu Canada) vs. his 2015 hatchback.

    I got a chance to see:

    - How the 2015 drives compared to the 2017 with its revised steering, suspension, brakes and other things (NOTICEABLE difference... will post about that in the other threads)

    - Strawboss brought his special device (MUT) that lets you customize the car's various parameters/settings in the computer (eg. unlocking the cruise control function)

    - Got an overview of the various modifications / improvements he's made to his car

    And we just generally had a good chat and a couple of short drives. Nice day for it!

    Highly recommend other people set up meets in their areas.

    I was impressed by all the changes that were made to the '17 model, Mitsubishi definitely did not stop at mere cosmetic upgrades although those were nice too!

    Thanks, it was bought originally for my smart fortwo diesel, so naturally after investing in a plate like this I couldn't get a corvette to replace it.....
