Looks great. I love the plate relocator! Can you tell me where you got it (if such links are allowed here...)? I am not sure if a plate relocator is legal here in Germany but one way to find out is to use it and see what happens :)

A small update of all the little things I did the last 2 weeks ! I receive the front plate relocator, looks great like that now ! I also bought black wheel nuts and used plasti-dip to blacked out the Mazda emblem in the middle of the wheels. And I installed a strut tower bar from Blitz, mainly for the look, not driving the car hard enough (before) to feel if there is a real difference... the cap from the brake fluid tank can still be open ! And I had to bend a litlle the negative terminal from the battery just to give it more room. Pretty happy with how she looks now :D









Looks good. And it looks like the same mold or parts that were used for the Mikstore FSB that I have, but currently don't have installed since I didn't see much difference, tho I may try it out again. I did some tests with cones while recording with a cam, but found it hard to distinguish between placebo and real world difference, so I concur it's mostly for show.

Pro tip re the negative ground: as an alternative, you can loosen the bolt by which it's attached to the chassis, and then rotate the end terminal 90 degrees by using the secondary, unused hole to the right of the bolt.

Hydraulic lifts - Mikstore
Audio system - JL, RF, and AudioControl
LED lights - Mikstore I think

Very cool! Was that a wrap or some kind of ceramic coating or something else?

I haven’t had any problems with the sensor detecting things either

Just updated an older picture



Is that a 323F? Here in the US we have cool cars that sometimes are not available elsewhere but I see lots of cars available in other countries that were never brought to our shores. I would love to Kl-ZE swap one of those (if I’m not mistaken they had a k series v6 as an option right?)

Yes it is (y) 323F in Europe, Lantis in Japan and I don't know why, in the US you only got the 4 door sedan Protege.

Mine is a simple 1.5 liter but is lightweight and very nice to drive. I wish there were more V6 around but they are very rare also here.
