    ...when you have to trade off power for window visibility on a cold day. (The defogger is the same system, right?)

    You know you're a Mirage owner/driver when...

    When you & your teeth no longer sleep together. You draw your pension. Practice Safe Sex by putting bars around the bed or simply use the floor. Your going upstairs and half way up you stop to catch your breath then you can't remember whether you were going up or coming down.
    Yes, it's an age thing.

    I literally thought that was the dash of something from the 50's. How is that the dash of a 1990 nissan????

    The Nissan Figaro was a very cool, and very retro design.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    You know your a Mirage owner when you never have to worry about getting carjacked while driving for Uber, but you do have to worry about morbidly obese passengers sitting in the back and bottoming the hell out of your car.

    Lovely cars based around the Nissan Micra. They had a huge following here but were expensive. Never released officially in the UK . Still see them now and again.

    Yea I know of those cars. Never seen them in real life. However, I have seen them in that British cars book from the UK my aunt brought over for me, like I told you a while back. They were a "concept car" at one point.

    I would drive that style of car if it's black or dark grey almost black, like my own 2014 Mirage.

    You know you are a Mirage driver when, on that rare occasion you put a 200 pound passenger in your car, you suddenly wonder if you accidentally turned the AC on.

    You know you are Mirage owner when you get a newer Toyota Corolla S as a rental car and it makes you feel like you are driving a city bus.
