My apologies if this is the wrong part of the forum.
I was near a Mitsubishi dealership yesterday and decided to stop and check out the mirages they had in stock (only a purple one in manual, what I think Iíd prefer.) The salesman (donít want to give his name) seemed pretty adamant about not being able to add the Rockford fosgate audio as an accessory, only from the factory. Is that actually the case? I was under the impression that you could buy it after the fact and instal it yourself.
He seemed to think the same with the cup holder (and I would assume the fog lights.) Are these all only able to be installed at the dealer or was he just uninformed/trying to get me into a higher/more expensive trim?
I didnít take the car for a drive (I donít believe in putting miles on someone elseís car until Iím actually seeking to make a purchase, Iím not going to be on the market for a couple months, and was upfront about that.) I did however notice the shift felt very notchy, at least compared to my first car (a 2004 Nissan Sentra 5spd,) does that improve with time or is that just part of the car.
I tend to drive for fun up in the Adirondackís as a hobby, and while I realize this is no performance car, people here tend to seem to enjoy the manual as far as driving experience. Is it too lethargic to enjoy on a back mountain road, or does it handle them fine? (Note: planning on getting one of the Daox sway bars if I end up getting one, and also the maintains here are more curvy with occasional dirt roads as opposed to the much more steep mountain passes elsewhere in the country.)
