I think the comment was that they stick to the ceiling very well! I'm guessing you have an i-phone, which usually get pictures the wrong way up (as yours are). It always leads to amusement among those of us that use a proper Operating System. :thumright:

Ps. Your wheels, brakes and tyres are a very nice setup.

If I remember right (Warpc0il is the expert on this) iPhones add a tag to the photo which records which way up the iPhone was when you took the picture. Apple devices can read this tag and will therefore always display the picture the right way up. But other operating systems can't read the tag, so they just display the picture in its native orientation. You can fix it by turning your phone around when taking the picture, or rotating it 180degrees in some photo editing software.

I should also say, if I double click on the picture then it displays the right way up.

Here's a few photos of my Strato Blue 231. It's not yet been collected, so these are photos taken by the owner before the guy I bought it from.

The only difference on it's appearance now is that standard wing mirrors have been fitted.

I will be changing the existing seats and door cards for a stone leather and alcantara set up from an Evolve, the steering wheel and gear knob for standard items and I'll also be removing the bonnet risers and fitting lambo doors. (Cheers Chris!)

Here's the list of mods listed by the seller... I am dubious about the claim of tuning for 261hp, but we shall see!

Mazdaspeed rear diffuser
