Re: Wraps

I like the wood panelling - if you look closely, the 'wood grain' is circuit board tracing. :)

Re: aftermarket stereo concerns

I fitted an aftermarket head unit in my 'i' with no ill effects.
I fitted a pair of right-sized speakers into the rear too and the mounting holes mostly line up with the door slots.
But impedance was not something I even thought about!

Re: Factory alloys - weights please

The top one looks like aluminum alloy spoked wheels (better looking to me), i would think the weight difference would be very small, but i've not measured. Were any i-mievs delivered with the spoked alloys or just the ICE cars. In Japan and Europe the first iMievs had the spoked wheels, and the Peu...

Re: Factory alloys - weights please

Just to clarify, it's these two styles of wheel I mean: http://www.topgear.com/uk/imageresize/image.jpg?OriginalImageUrl=%2fuk%2fassets%2fcms%2fabe796b8-a9b4-4b97-bb70-8d6c4834b716%2fLarge+Image.jpg%3fp%3d080728_02%3a36&Width=600&Height=339 http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/images/imiev/wraps...

Factory alloys - weights please

Hi,

as far as I know there were two different styles of OEM wheel offered on the iMiev:
a spoked design on earlier cars, same as on the ICE 'i' car, and the 'three hole' design fitted to later cars.

Which ones are lighter, please?

:)

Re: gas-powered i Fuel Economy

Hi,
for what it's worth, I get around 45 - 48 mpg (imperial) in the UK in warm weather. Cold weather around 40 - 45 mpg.

Now, someone could always take the entire running gear and drivetrain from a gasoline 'i' and retrofit it into an iMiev shell...

I didn't realise that the US version gets a rear-mounted radio antenna, which I think is an improvement over the original.
(And after looking closely, I realise it also doesn't have the black panel above the windscreen, or the black hood trim)

Mark, would you mind taking a few photos of the headlight adjustment knob and the wiring behind it?.

Re: LED headlights

That's a relief that it isn't just me, thanks. I'd hesitate to adjust the beams outside the factory setting though; I once had two rear passengers and was happy to see the headlights pointing a little higher up and lighting up more road. But I got a few flashes from oncoming traffic so had to adjust...
