Purchased in June of 2018 to save fuel and as a reliable daily driver. Installed OEM Cruise and a few little things here and there.
Gets 45MPG with 50 happening fairly often. Enjoyable little car imo.
Nickname is from TMNT.
Day I picked it up vs now
Added the OEM console an hour after I bought it.
OEM Cruise installed.
Some NOS (New old stock) Momo leather shift knob, since i hate the bland stock one.
Working OEM Cruise.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Hubcaps
View my fuel log 214 Mirage ES 1.2 manual: 39.8 mpg (US) ... 16.9 km/L ... 5.9 L/100 km ... 47.8 mpg (Imp)
I have completed a few more junkyard mods and added some sound deadening. I grabbed a few doors worth of sound insulation to add some additional insulation to my existing doors and also got a large chunk of butyl mat to add some additional sound deadening behind the speakers and on the door in a few places to cut down on the buzziness. The front doors sound like a bank vault!
Added chrome handles from a GT as well.
I also found a friend. Amazing what Mitsubishi could do if they just made the side skirts standard and put better hubcaps on these.
