Raised the front airstruts up approximately 2 inches. Gives me more lift while still laying fender to lip when aired out.

Fresh alignment courtesy of Firestones lifetime alignment. Prob the best $150 I spend on my cars.

This is my present ride height. A good compromise of low while still being comfortable.

I need to play more with the d2 racing dampening on the airstruts.

New wheels.

MRR MR3.

Front: 20x8.5 +35
Rear: 20x9.5 +35

Tires: 245/35/20

My 1st set of chrome wheels, ever. I don’t care for chrome at all. I wanted the silver versions, but these were a great deal. I will prob ride them for a while and trade them off in the summer.

I also wish I would have went with a 225 in the front. I hate that I have absolutely no stretch.

To each his own, you do you, and good on trying something new, but I really liked the other ones - these aren't my style.

Everything else is as clean as always though :D

I was gonna say "holy unsprung weight Batman!". Kinda really ruins the car now, the others were way better.

I loved the DF5’s but I wanted something different and I’ve always loved these wheels, but I wanted them in the brushed silver but I couldn’t find any under $1200. And that’s used. They are $1600 new. They seem to hold their value very well for a 10 year old wheel.

These are actually 1lb lighter each wheel than the DF5’s. Surprisingly light. The DF5’s were def the crowd favorite, and these are a little bright, but the staggered setup helps a lot with the fitment. I may try to create a brushes look bc the chrome is a little bright for me.

Did you have to roll the fenders for the +40 offset? Thanks.
Not when I was on the CorkSport springs. I rolled them when I went air bc the wheel lip made contact when airing out. The 10” wide, +40 with the 245/35 is the combo needed to not rub

Been busy. Havnt done anything really. Gas. Oil changes. And my normal 800 miles a week.

Changed the spark plugs at 130k and did quad tips this weekend.

Other than that, I’ve just been driving her.

I did order some wheels and they should be here soon.

Got rid of the MRR HR3’s and picked up a set of Riverside TrafficStar DTX.

Also orders the MV Tuning Front and Side Splitter so I get to hurry up
And wait on those to arrive.

Pictures of the new loops.

Underglow! Did you play Need For Speed?


I want that one which will turn on if you open the door only.
NFS Underground all day!

And I have a GT so I have the puddle lights and I have the Mazda Logo on both front doors.

I read everything from page one, again, and I saw that the original puddle lights were labeled differently now.

I don't know where I've read it but someone had a problem installing the puddle lights because it busted his fuse or something. Is yours plug and play?

Yes, mine were plug and play. A literal 5 minute install for both puddle replacements. The 1st set were defective and eventually just turned into a white light. I guess the inscribed logo just faded away. The replacements have been wonderful.

Thanks again! I'll take a look for a local seller. And this reminded me of the louver that I totally forgot to order.
