I live in Canada and I imported a 1997 Eclipse Spyder. It showes 60K, but I think it has more than that as I went through my first clutch the other day. Other than that I love the car and they are very rare in Canada.

For the yellow headlights: You can get some Mother's Alluminum Compound, rub it thoroughly onto the light (carefully not touching the paint on the car.) After you have done this about 4 times, your lights will look like new. BTW, I have found it's best to use a soft terry cloth to apply the compound. I have owned my cherry red 1996 Eclipse Rally Sport for about 3 days now. THESE CARS ARE WONDERFUL. I highly suggest the Eclipse and it's older cousin: The Mitsubishi Conquest TSI Turbo (get a 1988 if possible.)

I have owned my 1996 Eclipse RS for the past year and a half or so. So far I have gone through a new timing belt, clutch, pulleys, and brakes. The costs were high, but for the last 5 months there has been nothing seriously wrong. The power steering pump has a bad pressure regulator so it makes noise every once in awhile. The car has great reliability although it goes through its little phases, like last night the stock stereo started to short out if I touched the steering wheel... Anyone got an answer to why that happened? So far I have also added headers, exhaust, hi flow cat, halo projector headlights, full blitz kit, venom 450cc injectors, and a Aem cold air intake. The look of the car now is great, Mitsubishi has definetly won me over.

I have a 1995 eclipse RS, red, and extremely sporty and great handling. The only problem is, (not only with my eclipse, the second generation eclipses in general), they have poor turning ! However, I love this car to death, it is a nice, hot, sporty car!!!
