    Just one pic right now (it's not great). I just picked up the side sill extensions and will get some lowering springs here, too.

    I can wholeheartedly say that the jump from 165/65/14 Dunlop Enesaves to 195/50/15 Yokohama S.Drives is the single-handled most dramatic change in wheel/tire performance I've ever felt in nearly 25 years of driving. It totally transformed the car. Can't wait to get springs on it!

    Do I detect a Micra parked ahead of you?
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    Looks like a Yaris to me. We don't have Micras in the US ;-) Eventhough, his other car is about as rare as they come too.

    Yeah, it's a Yaris. I do wish we got the Micra in the States, however.

    I'm waiting for the weather to warm up a bit before doing the sills, as I want the plastic adhesive film to adhere well.

    Got a couple of better pics of the MB Revolt wheels and Yokohama S.Drives (195/50/15). Hope to do something about the wheel gap soon. It's absolutely incredible the difference a more high-performance tire makes on these little cars. I'd go as far as to say I've never owned a car in which tires made such a huge difference in performance.

    If you're reading this and wondering what your first upgrade to your Mirage should be, it should be wider, stickier tires.

    I totally agree. I have 205/50/15 tires and it's crazy how much better the car feels! Feels much more 'grounded' and the car doesn't 'shift' weight as much during turns too.
