    Saw a white '14-'15 DE tonight that I had not seen before. It was unusual in that it not only had fog lights, but also the seldom-seen chrome fog light trim. If I see it again I will snap a pic. Meanwhile, here is a Plasma '15 ES that is always parked at an apartment complex kitty-corner to where I work. This pic was snapped some time ago, but the car is still there.



    This white '17 ES was spotted in June of 2017 on southbound I-5 near downtown Seattle. I suspect this car was being moved from one dealership to another, possibly after being sold (still had it's window sticker and no temporary registration in rear window). I was stuck in traffic, of course, because it's freakin' Seattle...



    This Kiwi '14 ES was spotted this past summer in the parking lot of my local Target.



    There! Now I am all caught up!

    I recently took a trip to Georgia. I saw a few Mirages, and even got my wife to get a few pictures. They were all seen in Tennessee or Georgia. Didn't notice as many in the norther states, probably just coincidence.

    From that angle, they sure look like they're hunkered down and hustling, especially the middle one.

    Actually the first one was probably moving the best. I was going 70 mph and those three cars passed pretty quickly. No doubt practicing their drafting technique!

    Saw a '14 Kiwi DE at the one of the local Arco stations three days ago. I filled my car up, and during that time never saw the person who was driving it!

    I just noticed the weird blacked-out fog light trim.

    I wonder if the middle one had passengers or cargo in back. Even the top example seems lower in the back than the third.

    Sorry it took so long to notice what MetroMPG was pointing out. Alas, l'esprit d'escalier...

    That's cool they give a discount for cash but still spendy.
