Thanks haha. I just think it goes well with the stock taillights, same Red colour. For those with aftermarket lights... i believe it'll still look good haha.

I make sure its cleaned once a week, they look a lot better that way

have i met you?? haha

Thanks mate, i will probably send you a message before i try anything, knowing me ill **** it up somehow

Yea mate for sure! Just gave the car a wash BUT ill have to give it another one before Sunday so it looks nice and shiny

I can definitely see know why getting a wheel alignment is a good idea. Not that it was 'drastically' out, just needed to fix some toe in for one of the fronts and rears. Ive got the sheet so i can see whats been done. Handles even better aswell! Ill try throwing it a little harder into corners again to see when i start to really lose grip haha

Lowering even more OR running with choppies?
My plan/idea is when i get a set of rear coils im looking at getting a cm or so worth of 'tuck' for the rear, if i keep the front the current height it will be riding slightly lower in the rear. Not sure of others but i hate that typical Commo look just dumped in the rear, so ill try even it out by lowering the front a tad.
Practicality, i have never really scraped with it sitting at this height, only once or twice when ive forgotten to go on an angle and gone to quick. The wheels have never scrubbed as they are only stock (6" wide i believe) so i still have heaps of room under the wheel arch.

**Soon to come** New 17" Rims!! Still waiting on new Mazda centrecaps and Mazdaspeed stickers
