    2017 Spark LS 5 speed.
  1. Excellent. Any major repairs along the way?
  2. Yes. There is a plastic piece that fits in that cutout. It is not held in place very securely so the previous owner probably lost or tossed it.
  3. As far as I know the only changes to the 2019 LS were purely cosmetic (wheel covers, color choices, chrome grill trim, fog light covers). Everything you mentioned should work on 2016-present.
  4. I'm not really up on modern vehicle ecu performance upgrades. Sometimes It feels like the drive-by-wire is holding back the revs I'm trying to give it and I would like to eliminate that sluggishness and inconsistency in the power delivery.
  5. Looks much better with that red paint.
  6. Great idea. Might even get a few psi of ram air boost at high speeds or against a strong wind as a bonus.
  7. That idle sounds much smoother than your earlier video!
  8. I think a performance chip would unleash the beast of this over restrained all aluminum dohc 16v engine without sacrificing many MPG's but I don't think anything is available yet. Intake and exhaust mods would just be expensive noisemakers without a chip (not that there is anything wrong with making it louder if that's your thing).
  9. Trade it in for a 2016+. It comes with a spare as standard equipment.
  10. If I wanted the experience of Mitsu Mirage ownership I would start by pulling out one of my spark plug wires.
  11. I would give that rusty drum a shot of black or even red paint since it is so easy to see through the spokes.
  12. Hopefully just a 1 in a million porous casting that slipped through QC. I love my manual. Mine works great except for the clutch and shifter being a little rubbery feeling at 10 below zero.
  13. That's a lot of miles in a short amount of time. Looks like its ready for its next 100K.
  14. Have you installed lower compression forged pistons or pressing your luck with the stock cast pistons?
  15. Yeah that airbag replacement must be quite an ordeal because I got a new dash cover also.
