    Hi from Austria !

    Hi iam Martin from the Southern Alps of Austria, near to the Italian and Slovenian Border.

    My old Ride, a 2003 Lancia Y 843 69HP Diesel was by far not worth the upcoming repairs anymore and i planned to buy a new one, i think were heading for "a little" inflation here, so i thought spend a little money before its nothing worth anymore.

    I had the Mirage on the Watchlist for its fuel efficiency and the 5y/100.000km guarantee.

    I found the old 2018 "80hp invite connect" model (aluwheels, mgn 6.5" navi, air condition) of the old 2019 Model before facelift NEW (60km) for 10.000€ (11.000$) but 400km away from me. I tried to get the same price from dealers near to my hometown but everybody offered me prices between 11.000 (white color) & 12.000 €.

    The Model I have got has a list Price of 13.990€ + 500 € Metallic Color + 500 € Shipping. So i saved about a third, 5000€ - a once in a lifetime deal in my opinion, at least in my high tax country (free healthcare and social security has a price tag. espacially at these days iam happy to pay premium taxes )

    My guess is that those "old" 19 Models where orderd by the dealer before the facelift and the COVID situation last year and now the bills are to pay for those and other cars orderd last year.

    Car Sales in Austria (and Europe as a whole) dropped signifficantly this year and many dealers have serious problems.

    I was driving my old rusty lancia in september 400km to tyrol near innsbruck (got 50€ for it and 500€ eco exchange bonus to get my 10k deal).

    Iam happy to have found your forum, the german Forum is for Mitsubishis in general an there is not so much to read about the space star/mirage.

    I was often here before signing the deal last week, looking for info on the navi headunit mostly (RMS WATT OUTPUT, ANYBODY ? ) and plan to upgrade the speakers next year, maybe cruise control and rear cam in the future, but not the original parts. I need to ask about local guarantee issues before i start.

    i will step right in with a few audio questions.

    Here is what I used in my speaker swap:

    Metra 72-8104 Speaker Connector for Select Toyota Vehicles

    Hopefully you are able to view the Amazon product for comparison.

    The adapter you posted looks different from the Metra 72-8014, so there is doubt whether your adapters would fit.

    Hi Martin, vermutlich aus Villach und Umgebung! Bin öfters in der Nähe. Willkommen hier.

    Before you actually do any modifications, you may want to download the FSM (Factory Service Manual). It tells you a lot, for example how to take the old radio out without damaging the visible parts.

    I bought my Space Star with AC and radio in 2014 for €7990. Today the most basic is around €7500, albeit without radio, without AC.

    If you want to keep your radio and upgrade the speakers, make sure they are 4 Ohm and not 8Ohm.

    Servas Foama du VSV i KAC

    the most basic 71hp version, as far as i know is sold in germany, not austria. i think they went more expensive over the years, but i am not sure, always looked for the 80hp version from the start.

    thank you very much for your tip with the FSM. do you have a link, maybe?

    my websearch only shows me versions before 2014.

    Yes, Amazon’s fitment checker will say the Metra 72-8104 will not fit the Mirage, but it was a perfect match on my Speck. Did you view my speaker installation posts? I shared the link above.

    Willkommen Martin! Sie werden Ihren Space Star lieben. Ich wünschte, Österreich mache seine eigene Automarke und verkaufte sie in den Staaten. Ich denke, das wäre cool und einzigartig. Der Sportwagen "Hapsburg 3000GT" wäre fantastisch. Vielleicht titelt der österreichische Hersteller "Empire". Ich scherze, aber es wäre immer noch genial. Willkommen.
