Just painted my calipers silver. Was curious about the yellow, though. Got pics yet? Had considered red; still considering it.

I'm new to Mazda, but have been a long-time "hesitant-to-own" fan of the rotary.

As of Saturday, I now have a nordic green RX-8 w/navi, HID's, etc. It's bone-stock, now, but definitely not for long (I'm quick to mod). I have the Mazda-Speed body kit on the way from Takakaira as well as some black Volk GTCs and HKS exhaust from MVP, and Greddy Turbo kit and Tein basics from Intense.

I'll post shots as upgrades take place. Until then, here she is:

Let me know what you think. Do you have pics of your silver calipers? I though about red, but received a lot of comments about Christmas and that stuff. I got some good responses to the yellow ones.

Looking good, Cobalt. I like the contrast, and the openess of your wheels. I'll be washing tomorrow, and will take some pics for you shortly there after.

I can't decide on what to go for next. I love doing things for the appearance, but getting spanked by a new GTO the other day kind of made me want to work on the performance side of the house. I put the chrom exhaust covers on, expensive for not much enhancement. I need the fender strakes, and I've thought about the MS Bodykit. Sorry, just rambling on about nothing. Looking forward to the pics MadDash

Cobalt - Next: First and foremost - lower the car! The Torque 5's turned out well. Now lose that wheel gap. For around $300 you can improve the car's handling and the cars looks by doing so. Report back to us with the pics when you get it done. :D

PS - The strakes will look HOT also - Just another couple hundred - No biggie.

Just wanted to chime in... Green is amazing. Thus spake me.

Is the Nordic Green on the 8 the exact same as the Green for the FD?

No--the FD color is Montego Blue Mica--I use to have one, it was more of a color changing color than the Nordic Green Mica. In certain lights the Montego Blue had a deep blue color to it, other times it looked black or green.

Silver Calipers on Green

Cobalt-- Finally got around to washing the car; had family come into town last week and didn't have a chance until tonight. Anyways, here are a few pics from inside the garage. Will try to get some from outside tomorrow.

Well I guess they turned out good, what did you use? I like things with a little more color. At first I didn't even notice them, but they are definetly cleaner. Have you thought about getting some clear corners? they really change the look of the Green. Keep us posted on any other mods you do. I'm getting the bug again...lol
What to do, what to do though..

My third time at Road Atlanta. Two Panoz schools and a NASA High Preformance Driving School. The pictures are from the last NASA event. There is more about it with in-car video and pictures on the SE Forum.

I love the car man. Looks very clean. I just ordered my exhaust and tips. What kind of exhaust did you go with? Any tips?

Green owner here, but I'll have to post pictures later... I got backed into again last week and it looks like bumper #3 for me. Anyway, I was thinking of going with a MazdaSpeed replica, but I've never seen it in green. Anyone have pictures?

I love the dark under edge of the MS on the other colors I've seen, but I don't know what could be done for a green the would show up and still look nice.

I've always wanted to hit up road atlanta. It is such an amazing course (IMO).

Which of the two schools did you prefer?
