not a fan of the smoked lights and blacked out badge.
I'm not into systems but looks like it's pumpin', whatever you like!
I say put the rx8 wheels on it while dropped and keep it clean/stock looking, especially since you have such nice paint.

Wow, your car looks alot like mine but mine is way cooler j/k Nice car man. Keep that paint in good shape. I have to get a respray because of the last owners neglect.

I'm selling pretty much everything that I don't need on my car. Hit up the for sale section for some nice goodies.

thx guys...

the dash is annoying now... im redoing it ... trying to find a good color... i dont have pics but im redoing the interior in brown diamond suade.. the headliner is done.. along with one of the rear panels... the rest of the panels are not done but will be... i dont have very much time these days... so it might be waiting til the spring... but i also and building custom door grills and rear grills for my new speakers which dont fit under the stock grills... but ya .. i need to find a color to go with all the suade and redo that dash.. teh problem with the white is that if by chance you drop something on it and scratch it... this is not easy but it does happen... then its rly easy to see the the black underneith ... since it contrasts so much.

the exterior will pretty much remain stock.. i dont plan on a kit since i drive in the winter...

the rx8 rims will be put back on in the spring with some lower profile tires ( going to 225/ 35 instead of 225/45) so it should be looking clen liek that... they will also be powerder coated blk..


the pictures do not do the light tint justice it acually blends really well with teh color of the car , and that is why the emblems and all the lights (not side markers yet) have been done in blk... the headlights are still really clear undr the tint so it looks rly neat.. basically as i said the pics dont do teh light justice.


as for the paint... it is in pretty good condition... the past owner clearly had a stupid wife as along i think passenger side there are quite a few dings from when wives open doors int other cars... those should be fixed eventually... as well as a paint *tune up*... meaning maybe a clear coat and some scratches being fixed...


as for the comment on the system... the reason i got that is cuz im not o into performance ... two reasons,,,, 1. its atx. .. maybe one day mtx 2. already had license suspended and dont need the car to go any fatser hahaha... but ya . maybe one day itll get osme performance put into it...the car only has 145000 so its still rly good undert he hood so i dont rly wanna touch it until something bad happens haha *knock on wood*

but thx for teh comments guys appreciate them... ill be posting new pics in the spring when the wheels get put back on and a couple other random things.

I love the color, but not the white painted interior panels. That's one hell of a system. Are the RX-8 rims on it or the stockers?

It's looking pretty good man. I have a black emblem on my hood but only because I have a black car. It will be shaved if I ever get it repainted.

its too light of a color to do that.. it would be similar to the white and it would look bad wth the dark brown.

im thinking it will be a blk with a dark brown hue to it.. or somethin like that.



as for you chefspot i was gunna paint her blk again but then i realized that the vinyl on the door panels was getting rough and peeling so i decided to pull that then i found some sick brown suade so im putting that and now the rest of the interior gotta match.. lol .. but i have not decided so we will see what color she end s up..



btw if anyone every considers recovering their headliner i highly recomend it.. its easy and it makes the interior feel so much more luxurious.

its actually ridiculously easy...
first pull teh headliner.. and the liner on the sunroof. both just held on by push clips be gentle and you should have a prob ( o and these little clips around the sunroof opening.

then pull gently and its off. the sunroof one is u just pulling..

then grab your cloth and some spray adhesive. i used 3m.

spray the headliner and the cloth not to heavy or itll seep through.. stick the two together and trim. simple as that. just make sure you get glue everywhere and nothing will fall off.

its literally taht simple. the door panels are not.
