Did any of the manual mirages come with a leather gear/shift knob that can be installed on a 2021?
I think I've seen one but not sure if it came on the mirage or an Evo x.
Since 2018, only the base level ES trim level comes standard with a 5-speed manual transmission. The ES does not come with a leather shift knob. Shift knobs screw off and can be replaced with something else. I'm sure someone has done it on the forum.
If owning a 5-speed manual is your top priority, your Mirage shopping just got easier (one trim level).
I would test drive a Mirage asap. Otherwise, you "have the cart before the horse" in my opinion.
