    •  

    Texas legal window tint. I believe it's 25% on the front door windows, and regular limo around the back, with a limo eye brow.

    •  

    Factory Pushbutton Start, Bluetooth, steering wheel controls. ie; ES goodies

    •  

    Gas-sipping factory Mitsu sewing machine

    •  

    All factory. Wouldn't mind some additional travel in the suspension though, for the occasional random speed bump or pot hole.

    •  

    Slightly oversized... will update with exact size and model info.
    Update - Barum Brillantis 2 - 175/65/14

    Updated my garage entry w/ the tires I'm currently using, and a link to the fog lights that I got off of ebay.
    I have been extremely happy with them for anybody that is hesitant in purchasing them as a replacement for a broken lamp. I went ahead and replaced both so they would match perfectly, especially since I put the protective film on them. Made for a good clean slate to start w/.

    No sir... unfortunately. Just one.
    If I wasn't working crazy hours and commuting like I was at the time, I would have tried to tackle it myself. I had a long commute and couldn't afford to have any down time. I had to have something reliable, and it went downhill fast once it started going. I had to pay for a rental as well for the time it was in the shop.

    Maybe the Mirage is a harder job than the VW? Sealed bearing? I’ve heard there’s ones that take more labor. Mine is a 30 min job.
