    Looks good. I like the design of the 2014/2015s.

    more rim photoshop! these are 16 inch rims. I'm really considering these. Possible tire setup could by a 205/45/16 or 195/50/16. I am really diggin' this setup. Too bad it isn't lowered...yet!

    Just took her on a 560 mile round-trip from St. Paul, Minnesota to Gran Marais, Minnesota. Had no issues. She drove very comfortably too! My average speed was 70-75mph going there and back. Lots of dead bugs you can't see in the pictures, I gotta get her a wash soon. At highway speeds, there were no issues. Wasn't an issue to pass someone on the slow lane. The only issue was an extremely steep hill in Duluth, seemed like she struggles to get up really steep roads but other than that, the highway corners and small curves were handled really well. I didn't feel like it was going to lose grip but i can still feel that huge body roll (time for some suspension upgrades >)

    Gas mileage was GREAT. With the average speed of 72-75mph on the highway, the gauge was showing 42-44 mpg with the AC on. From our starting point to Grand Marais, my gas gauge was at halfway. We did make a few stops but it only took $12 to refill it back to a full tank of gas!

    Overall, the car did very well. We didn't pack too much in the car because this was just a weekend trip but if we did pack some luggages for the wife and I, I would have easily rested in the rear trunk space. More spacious than I thought it would be. She handled through the highway corners really well. Never felt like I was going to lose grip. Power was there when I just gave it more gas. Getting it up from 50 to 65mph didn't take too much effort as well. I think I would definitely take more trips with her in the near future. Just gotta upgrade my suspension for less body roll and maybe wider tires just to get a tad bit more grip, sure, it will effect the fuel economy by a bit but I am still amazed at how well it did for what it is.

    Here she is at Gooseberry Falls!

    took her to a small ramp meet. no one batted an eye at it LOL. of course, there were plenty of other cars there that was MUCH more eye candy than a Mirage heh heh.

    Just gave her an oil change last night. I was 200 miles over due for one But, at least I found a the AMSoil for $11 for 1 quart! totaled up to $40. Great deal. She's currently sitting at 8,2xx miles right now.

    So far, so good. I'm averaging about 330 miles on a full tank of gas. Also, it only takes $15 to fill her up. Far better than the usual $35-$40 when I had a 2002 Nissan Maxima. I don't see any difference in gas mileage going from 87 to 92/93 octane. If anything, butt-dyno is logging in slightly better acceleration on the on-ramp to the highway.

    Comfort? My drive to work and back home is about 25 minutes. Seats don't ache my back. Seats does it job. No complaints. Road noise isn't bad since I have my radio on. But, during wet-rainy days, I notice that I can hear water splashing in the rear passenger area. Almost sounds like the window is open but it isn't. Doesn't bother me but just a small noticeable thing to note. Other than that, the Mirage, in my opinion, makes an awesome car to drive around and run errands.
