The oem appearance package only has the little rear skirts. The Mazdaspeed is a full one.

Not many 8 owners seem to know that there are a lot more Mazdaspeed parts available than just what's in that little brochure the dealers give you.

Check this out:

http://www.mazdaspeeddevelopment.com/index.php

There's a lot there, take your time to go over the whole site. Note the whole section on Renesis perfomance rebuild parts!

Megan reminds me of the Family Guy episode when they all make a fart sound when someone says "Meg" lol!


I think you should call her "Svetlana"

Did you get her out on the road this weekend?

Have you noticed differences between this one and the black one?

She was never in the road for long, thats not my house lol. I have noticed that this one shifts very smooth and seems a little tighter on the suspension for some reason but that may be because I have been driving a 09 maxima as my rental car... other than that I love the gt and all the stuff it brings to the car, the windows aren't tinted yet but with the auto dim mirror I can see why. The Bose speakers are nice to have although I don't listen to music much when I can listen to the rotary instead lol. leather gets hot but the heated seats will be nice in the winter I guess (unless you don't drive your 8 in the winter). TCS is the big thing I think I will like about this one, I heard it makes all the difference in bad conditions...

Good to see you last night, thanks for stopping by! The car is a definite improvement over the old one. White was my second choice for color if I couldn't find a silver one when I was ready to buy.
I need to trim-out the eyelids, not sure if I can get to it today (not in the shop tomorrow), but if not this weekend, next weekend for sure.
I'm also looking into getting some WWP paint (as well as some TiGr for Bryan) so if the black idea doesn't work, we'll just paint them.

Thanks JT, it was good to see you and Bry and talk about the 8 (and the vw turbo lol). Apparently that blue led I installed for my license plate light is really bright... lights up the whole road behind me Bry said lol. Oh well :-). Looking forward to having the eyelids whenever you get them done :-)

It looks like an after market alarm or remote start light. They usually install a small light to show it is armed or ready to start. I had my remote start light built into the dash by the DCS switch but the installer wanted to do some dumb mount.

It does have a switch on the back of it and when I flip it the light stays solid instead of blinking . It looks ghetto and I want to take it out if it does nothing but blink

Sounds like me, just stand around and vegetate . It sure does sound like a after market alarm light. You can always put it back if it's something else.

My driveway was the closest thing we've had to a meet in a long time, sadly...

I didn't have any time to work on eyelids last weekend...had to repair a 16-foot section of my back-yard fence. But I got it done, working in the rain at times, determined to finish it and not have it run into another weekend.

I'm going to by some WWP paint to try and sell a set of eyelids to Bry's dad so if the black doesn't float your boat, we can do them the factory color. Hopefully I'll get the paint next Friday if I don't have to work.

Stay tuned.

I have 3 sets now, all unpainted. I can only get to the paint store on Fridays and I've had to work the last 2 Fridays. Tomorrow isn't looking good, either. Summer is my busy season at work. They are closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

One of the unpainted ones is the black gelcoated set- but in my opinion, it still needs to be wet-sanded with 600 grit and polished before use- the gelcoat surface straight from the mold is unacceptable.

If you want to connect this weekend, we could set the black ones on your car and see how they look- but honestly, if it was me- I'd paint 'em with real automotive paint. Gelcoat will chalk with exposure to the elements.

No worries about the time schedule JT. I would like to see how the black looks on my pearl white this weekend if you have a minute for me to come by and check it out.
