Fri., 12/6 Marti DuGuay-Carpenter

THEME:   first letter of a phrase is changed from W to M
   
GOOD ONES:    
What you need when your car is stuck in the mud?   MIRE SERVICE   
Summons from a cosmetician?   MAKE-UP CALL   
Fix potatoes the hard way?   MASH BY HAND   
Audi rival, and, when spoken as a command, a hint to this puzzle's theme   BMW ["Be Em, W" = command; telling the W to be an M]   
Heat energy source?   MIAMI   
It may be a lot   ACRE   
Dash no.   MPH [on the dashboard, not 100 yrd. dash as I thought]   
One in the standings   TEAM [not number one as I thought]   
Opening on Broadway  ACT I [not a show as I thought]   
Remote hiding places?   SOFA   
Trade item?   TOOL [as in "tools of the trade"]   
Bean sprout?   IDEA [bean can mean head, viz. beanie]   
E, but not A, I, O, or U   DIR [abbr. of direction, and a tough one for me]   
   
BTW:   
Seeing red   IRKED [irked suggests annoyance rather than red-eyed anger]   
   
Pamplona pals   AMIGAS [possible, but females are not thought of as pals, so I had AMIGOS]   

Marti produced a real winner: clever theme and as clever cluing.  Thanks.
   
   
RATING: ;D ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
