    Lightbulb Daihatsu Mira e:S Knowledgebase/Wiki

    I've painstakingly compiled all of this information, and I'd like to share it with you, but please don't copy information without giving due credit, or a link to this thread. Thank you.

    Ever since I've purchased my Mira e : S (2012, DBA-LA300S-GBPF, ~30,000km on clock), I've been scouring the internet and calling Daihatsu Service Centers in Japan for information that would help me understand my car better.

    I translated the Quick Start Guide from Japanese, and since I haven't been able to find a manual for the car through both official channels and the internet, I thought I'd compile a knowledgebase that I could refer to for information on my car, when I need it ? helping the community out in the process.

    Feel free to contribute any information you find, or share your experience regarding the cars, to help make someone else's life easier. I'll update this thread accordingly.
    I'll link facts that end up here to the author of the post highlighting that information.

    ## --- ECO-IDLE MECHANISM INFORMATION --- ##

    [in progress]
    UPDATE 2016-10-06: I've just found out a potential reason for my eco-idle not working. There's a very specific battery type made for "idling stop" cars that is required by my Mira. My Hankook isn't going to cut it. More testing required.

    Guys i am buying Mira E:s. Can anyone please confirm me the difference/s between the versions of the car. What is the difference between L version vs X version. Further are both CVT transmission and have the same number of gears?

    Moreover, are the parts easily available. What about the oil filter, air filter, battery, brake fluid, gear oil & etc. source of buying these basic stuff.

    Some of you might find these question kiddish, but honestly this is the first time i am buying a Japanese car and i dont know jack about it.

    L is Basic while X has some more cosmetic features. All versions (D, L, X, G) have same engine and have CVT transmission.
    All basic maintenance parts like Plugs, brake pads, Mobil oil, oil filter and Air filter, are easily available, rest parts are also available from old spare parts market like Bilal Ganj, Lahore, Sheer Shah Karachi etc
