Titanium with INGs Stripes / Vinyl

Hi all, been a while since I last posted, but here are a few shots of my latest addition, these were ordered from INGs in Japan direct and aparently only one or two sets have been made worldwide.

General consesus over this side of the pond is that most hate them, so I suspect the views here will be the same. Again after a few meets, I'm told they look better in the flesh than the pics - oh and my wife is threatening divirce over them hehe

Flame away

This was at a recent meet here in the UK, taken down the old decal stack as seen here :

Bugger to cut round the fuel flap:

And in true JDM style, mirror image writing, which I wasn't expecting when I ordered - have since taken down the Borla / RB decal stack (as picture 1):

Not big on the stripes, they just don't seem ti fit well into your scheme, maybe if your car was white, or blue, but they just clash in a color coordination sense. But it is your car.

What I do like is the Stratos blue in the background, I really want that color, why oh why did Mazda not bring that color stateside.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the others. I love the car, but not feeling the stripe. I give props for the originality though.

looks good, but since the ings decal is backwards on the other side, I think it would make sense having all the other decal backwards too.

the stripes dont bother me as much as stripes usually do. in fact, i think the blue goes well with titanium gray. cant say i would even consider it for my own car, but looks good

I think it looks fine. The blue matches the blue of the calipers.

I like it.. and I hate it.. Its different, and I think the silver and blue look sharp together, but I hate the end of the decal.. the part with the "ings+1" on it.. if that makes sense? it would look sharper if it was just the design, with no name or anything on it.

love seeing the ings kit on a titanium... looks great, as do the wheels (ce28n's, no?). the stickers are a little too much, but if you like standing out that much, the colors work. congrats on a sweet car.

Thanks for all the good and bad comments - mixed bag of replies as I thought it would be.

The kits a complete mix and match of the bits I liked from everyone, see my sig - the rims are CE38N copies by a UK based company 'Kei Racing' - couldn't justify 3x the cost to get Volks imported here to the UK!

Man, your car would be sick without that stripe thing. That thing really deteriorates from the overall look of the car.

How is it mixed? So far all the comments about the car have been positive except for the stripes. It's cool that you mixed different style body kit parts though, very original.
