First car struggle #4 Daihatsu Mira TR-XX Turbo/Avanzato

Daihatsu - First car struggle #4 Daihatsu Mira TR-XX Turbo/Avanzato - Ask Car Throttle

After about 3 months, I finally remembered to make another instalment of my new series, heavily inspired by Myrmeko’s First. Car. LIVE! series. This time we’ll visit Japan for the first Kei car in my list, the Daihatsu Mira TR-XX in either the Turbo or Avanzato spec (dunno which one will be, definitely not the Avanzato R, because they are extremely expensive in decent conditions)

Like all Kei cars, the Mira is powered by a 12v, 660cc turbocharged 3-cylinder engine capable of 64hp, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. They can be either FWD or AWD

Mods

The mod list it’s even shorter here, including just:
1) a good performance exhaust
2) (maybe) a sportier air filter

Costs and conclusions

First of all, I have to say that Daihatsu never imported the Mira TR-XX here in Italy, so I’ll have to import it from Japan. The lowest buying price for a Mira TR-XX Avanzato AWD is 3253€ (2900£/3853USD) with shipping. Unfortunately I don’t know how much it will cost to register the car here, or how much insurance might be, nor I know how much the mods will cost. A thing that I know for sure is that spare parts will be expensive, since I’ll have to import them from Japan. So, basically, this post is here just to ask you if you like the Mira or not.

Now it’s time to vote! Give your vote from 0 to 100 in the comments.

The previous cars, the C2 VTS and C2 VTR, obtained 76.5/100 and 67.5/100 respectively, so they can’t even attempt to touch the Mighty Panda 100HP and its 90/100

Thank you for those who voted before and thank you for voting now! Have a good day/night/whatever!
