K so I put Teins on, put on the new Potenza S-03's and changed the trunk lid a bit. How you like it? I love the drop I think it came out perfect, and the car is not bouncy at all, smooth as silk.

Looking good Sik!


I'll have to let my daughter know to keep an eye out for your 8

Your 8 looks great! My new wheels and tires seem to take a lot more room now so going to have to do a side by side. So what was your total drop?

EXCELLENT - yup - that's a perfect drop - just the springs? or are those coil-overs?

The badges look good.
Are those the S-Techs, or The H series springs?

Very nice.
I may just have to look into some S-Techs for my 8.
Did you install them, or did you have a shop do it?

De-badging rear

I was trying to debadge the rear of my car but it seems like the Mazda nd RX-8 are riveted in. Is this true or is it just tough glue?

you'll need to fill in a few holes and repaint .... I did my trunk myself. not sure what it would be to have someone to do it ....By the way I flew in and rented a car to go up to my sisters in Taos. The town of ABQ is nothing less than spectacular.
