I decided that, whilst my 441bhp r34 Stagea is off the road for a couple of years for a few improvments, i should get a new lil car to tune n run bout in.

Spent a bita time looking at kei cars n settled on a Daihatsu mira/cuore Avanzato Tr-xx R4.

After getting import quotes i decided to search for 1 in the uk to save money.

After looking at 1, it seemed fairly clean and had good history(one of the uk`s promo cars), i bought it  :smile:






Next to my landy


Next to my landy again

After puting it up on a mates ramp it looks reasonable underneith with a few little bits of rust hear and there, but nothing major or structural  :happy:

Currently sitting on Greddy shocks and springs, full decat exhaust system with only 1 box(but its silent ??? ), front strut brace, induction kit, chipped ecu.

There is a few things ive got planed by end of febuary/march, these are

Fit a stereo and wire up the 6x9s n amp on the parcel shelf(Done)

Fit a boost gauge when it arrives(Done)

Tint all the lights(Done),


Back lights tinted and fog light removed


Front fogs n indicators tinted

Get my old minilites redrilled 13x7j et0(Done)  :blink:

Depending quite how far out the new wheels sit ill get some retro style bolt on arches(Done),

Depending how the wheels sit i may do away with the stretched rubber, and get some toyo proxy r888 for the racer look(Done)  8)

Remove the only remaining box on the exhaust, and either put a straight through in or a performance endcan(depends on sound and performance)(Done)

Get the windows tinted, and put a tinted sunstrip in too,

Get the bodywork tidyed up so its imaculate and get it resprayed.

Get the old manual boost controler from my Stagea fitted, and the apexi SAFC(if possible),

Take it to AFR Tuning just round corner from me, for them to have a tweek, n tune it and maby a dyno run to see what its actually running :thumb:

After that, over time Im looking at getting Cusco coilovers, uprated turbo and tubalar manifold, and highlift cams(if i can find some),

Im also pretty sure that ill end up getting other things that i like or people sugest  :lol:

Ill post up Pics and updates as things progress  :thumb:

Any advice or feedback is welcome and appreciated  :happy:

Depending on what the engine is boosting at (15psi std fuel cut) you probably wont need the SAFC. Looks well though!



oil and filter change *16/01/10 *27/08/10 *06/11/10 *16/04/11 *17/12/11 *17/03/12
Timing belt and tensioner and Alternator belt change 11/06/11

I like the way the stereo fits in with the rest of the car (same colour lights and everything else)
