Mitsubishi Outlander Modifications and Accessories

I would just like to know what mods you would do to personalize your 07 outlander? I would definately get some lowering springs as soon as someone offers some. I have no intention of going offroad and I think this car would look so much better lowered. something like the evolander--http://www.autoblog.com/2006/11/01/sema-mitsubishi-evolander-packs-a-- pocket-rocket/

    Here's an animated gif of mine, lowered with gray and bronze wheels.

    Very nice, I like that but I would leave the rims silver.

    RoadRaceEngineering.com are the guys that did the Evolander concept. They provided a custom coilover suspension that is available for purchase. I never asked them about price though.

    Ralliart Japan, has lowering springs, front and rear spoilers, and mesh grills. Their site has pics, but no English. Yen to dollars converter looks like springs would go for about $600 US. I think metric to US. also looked like right at 1 1/2 inches lower. Everything did look sweet! If I can find it again, I'll post the address.

    Other than that, I am in the process of removing the 3rd row seat and roof rails.
  • I have a 2007 Outlander with the Dvd and navigation system. Anyone knows how to modify it so that I can watch the dvd while driving? I know its required by law some countries but not here. So dont worry I will not hold anyone responsible. Thx.

    I have not taken ownership of my outlander xls yet but I plan to fold the outside passenger and driver side mirrors in, drill and install wide angle cameras into the side of the side view mirror housing. Then install two monitors on either side of the inside of the vehicle to eliminate the wind noise issue from the over-sized mirrors. It will take me a while so feel free to work on this modification in your spare time...

    I think the exterior of the Outlander looks great. The SUV is rare enough that customizing the outside is not going to make you much more unique.

    On the other hand, I really hate that Legoland dashboard. It looks and feels like a kid's toy and I wonder how sturdy it will be. Does anyone have a lead on a nice padded one-piece dashboard cover that looks like it belongs in the vehicle (i.e., not a piece of carpet)?

    My spare set of wheels just came back from powdercoating. I almost went for bronze, but the closest color match was a little too dark and too brown. So gunmetal was my choice, I think the color turned out good.

    I painted the center caps to match. My Tire Pressure Monitors should have been here today, but I missed the UPS guy so I'll have to wait until next week to mount up tires. I picked Pirelli P6 tires in the stock 225/55/18 size, going to compare them to the Goodyears.

    Pics so far...

    Has anyone been able to accomplish this to play the dvd player while driving? I know it's for safety reasons but I will not be using it. My husband and I carpool and he'd like to be able to watch a DVD on the way to work and back.

    I had a unit installed in my FX that allowed me to view the rear dvd player over the nav screen. I bought it from a site called nav-tv.com-you can check them out and see if they have anything comparitive for the outlander. Also I know they have aftermarket back up cameras- has anyone tried installing one into the aux input on our screen? I would like to do this mod. I know some people may say this is not necessary, but I had this in the FX and if I did not I would have ran over my neighbors dog because he was laying outside the garage when I was backing up. I would not have seen him if it wasn't for this camera.
  • has anybody had body side mouldings installed on their 07 outlander? could you post pictures of it, 'coz i'm thinking of having them installed but not quite sure hw they will look like. i'd really appreciate someone's help here..

    Go to: Mitsubishicars.com

    Click on Outlander:
    In left margin click on Trims and Accesories:
    Click on Accessories.
    Scroll down to Body Side Mouldings.
    Enlarge.

    They are not very big. I have them with the Protection package.
  • could you post a picture of the whole outlander with the body side mouldings? i want to see how it affects the qover all look of the vehicle. thanks!
  • How was your experience with Anaheim Mit. - or do you work there?
  • biscuit_xlsbiscuit_xls Posts: 194
    I bought my door handles there, good service. They weren't able to fix my TPMS problem, but they didn't charge me for the time they spent. Seems like a more organized facility that South Coast.
  • bicuit! have you checked out the accessories for the '07 outlander in eirope they have a nice side body moulding and a fog lamp ring too, do you think it'll be available here? or can we order it from there and get it shipped here in NA? what's ur opinion on this?
  • biscuit_xlsbiscuit_xls Posts: 194
    I'm not sure if those will ever be available here. Your best bet would be to hook up with one of the forum guys from Europe and see if he'll buy them and ship to you.
  • biscuit_xlsbiscuit_xls Posts: 194
    That one isn't available as an option because it requires drilling holes into the sheetmetal.
  • rcpaxrcpax Posts: 580
    Oops that looks like a pic from my blog :D I don't think it'll be a good to dill through the sheet metal to hook that up. But I wish Mitsu offered it standard across all trims. Japan got it, UK got it, US didn't get it. :confuse:
  • jflorjflor Posts: 20
    It seems that the best location to buy the new outlander is australia: choice of 2.4L or V6 engines and plenty of accessories.
  • yeno823yeno823 Posts: 2
    Maybe a double adhesive will do it instead of drilling holes?
  • rcpaxrcpax Posts: 580
    that's what i'm thinking. it snows here in our area and they sprinkle salt over the road like crazy. Drilling through the sheet metal is definitely gonna leave some bare metal open for the salt to react with. You may not see it until it's too late. This I'm sure will void your 7 year rust through warranty, unless a dealer installs it, which I doubt they would in the first place since the thing is not a standard part in the US. Although I like to have it, and yeah I was actually thinking along the lines of 3M adhesives rather drilling holes.

    My wife and I took an LS out for a first test drive, and then came back to the show room and reviewed an XLS that was open, but not available for a test drive.

    I've been following the new Endevour for a while, and have high hopes that it can be our next vehicle.

    We're both tall (I'm 6 ft), and we both found that even with the electrically adjustable seats, leg room for us in the driver and passenger seats is less than ideal (we typically share driving activities). Ironically, we've found that our Ford Focus has several inches more leg room than the Endeavour and several other similarly-sized SUV's.

    We commute about 45 minutes into work each day, so we're not willing to compromise on comfort. Similarly, we're not willing to move up to a full-sized SUV simply to get the leg room, as that would have a negative impact on gas mileage.

    So, I would suggest the following modifications...

    - Greater length of travel for the driver AND passenger seat adjustment.

    - Telescopic wheel (in addition to the current tilt capability).

    Looks good without the roof rack.
  • In US, the moldings come in an off-color gray only. Did not look good with my color!
    How do you remove the roof rack?
  • www.sportwing.com now offers 07+ Outlander body side moldings, about $100 painted to match.

  • Anybody seen sites for modding the 07+ Outlander? I've been looking for a cold air system, upgrade the brakes etc. Let me know if you've found anything. (i'm in Canada as well...in case you know of something local!)

    Cheers!
