hi guys,
I have noticed that everyone here who has lowered their car has different wheels. I am interested in seeing what the different drops would look like on the oem speed6 wheels and which type spring you used. Thanks in advance

Thank you very much guys!
ATL, which kinda of springs do you have? do you scrap on driveways and stuff? and where did you get your clear sidemarkers?

S Tein's and yeah. Have to take it easy going into steep driveways. Front bumper always hit. Going with some HKS Coil's soon. As for the sidemarkers. I don't know where you can get them now. I had these since 2003.

Nic, I was just wondering the same thing. The drop with the OEM wheels look good. Thanks for asking Nic and thanks guys for posting the pics. Your cars look great.

Thats the color I wanted but i wasnt trying to pay $1100 for the dealer near me to have one trailered here from NJ. The rebates and savings I got will suffice and i'll live kindly with my silver.

I really wanted that color too until I saw how much color difference there is between the metal and plastic painted parts. (bumper to fenders). Cant go wrong with black though. A drop actually makes the stock wheels look halfway decent.

Looks like a 2 and half to 3 inch drop. Pretty low drop, I like it.

How much of a drop is that?

as far as i can remember it was like 2in drop. but the weight of the ms6 lowered about another 1/2". it looks great lowered that low but you gotta watch them driveways. i've scraped the front lip a few times when i had them on. i do miss the look of that DROP but not the hassle of being so low...
heres another pic...

I really do love the look of the car dropped, but I don't think I could allow myself to drop it that much. It's my daily driver and I don't think I could stand the hassle of trying not to scrape over everything. I used to drive a 350Z and my brother's Evo (with C-West kit) and I hated having to worry about scraping. And they weren't even lowered!

Anyone here lower the car on the factory Mazdaspeed Spring set? And on stock wheels? I'm considering this for my first spring time mod. Any impressions? Thanks.
