Very nice, but I think it needs the rear aero flares to balance the skirts Like these and maybe a spoiler.

didn't think about the rear aero flares! well done that man....
ive got the spoiler sat at home awaiting painting and fitting.
after fitting the wheels we noticed the pads are low so going be upgrading them to the ebc yellow stuff discs and pads/or a peformance disc with hawk pads.
isn't there someone on here who gets discount on the ebc stuff?

Not sure. :-k You could have a look in the discounts section and see if anything obvious jumps out at you. This is the MRP brake options http://www.mazdarotaryparts.com/brx-8-b ... -305-c.asp
Pettit have a Stage 2 and a Stage 3 brake upgrade (I have no idea what either stage might be, but look here http://www.pettitracing.co.uk/pettit_ra ... e_kit.html and I'm sure it will make more sense to you - there is definitely a mention of Hawk pads in there somewhere).

Yeah i agree needs something to lower the backend to bring into line with the skirts, and im also not a fan of the alloys, they dont do it for me either

Nice 8)

Where'd you get the (MS?) bumper and sideskirts (& spoiler?) if you don't mind me asking?

+1 for the wheels btw :mrgreen:
BB 231, furry dice, LED washer jets, chrome wiper covers, 'turbo' & 'sport' badges from Halfords, stick-on bonnet/roof vents, homemade custom MDF 3 wing spoiler, too many stickers to list

I too like the wheels, I reckon they're the RX8 wheel equivalent of a Glam Rock Singer's sequinned spandex jumpsuit. Shiney and Flash, probably something I couldn't pull off but the effect works and makes for something cool!

I dig the wheels :D Totally different to the normal OZ Superleggera/Ultralegerra wheels that most have but these are equally as expensive which makes them even cooler :lol:

The wheels work well with the overall look you've got, the addition of a spoiler will complete the picture. =D> =D>
