It looks good. I like your car.

After seeing your pictures I believe that 18's are a little too big for my taste when installed on a stock body mx6 though. They are awesome wheels but they look slightly too large. Again. just my opinion. It's your car and your style.

PS. Does Kid_Puma know that you posted a picture of the front of his car? I don't think I've ever seen that part of it. LOL.

chef you should get rid of that comment and maybe he wont notice... i just really liked how the pic had all diff views of 6s
as for the rims, it looks really clean in person, more so than in pics. note .. im also putting rear flaps, and a small lip. maybe side pods if i can find the right price. should look even better then. as well with the rear actually lowered. personally i dont like 17s cuz they just dont fill out the well. but as long as someone has 17 or 18 im happy haha

no exhaust for me. its staying as is .. i like the sound of the car.. quiet but i can make people hear me. although next time its in the shop ima get em to raise it up.. since it sits firm but its low for whatveer reason. i think whoever installedt he tips was dumb.

o and dustbin, how does 165 sq ft. of dynamat sound?..... so far . got about 20 sq ft left so ima put it in. the car is covered in dynamat, everywhere.


as for the CEL.. its due to my atx to mtx swap.. i could try resistors and crap and try to fix the light... but im just goiung to spend my time working 2 hrs more and make the cash to buy a code reader, and pull the light. check it every once and a while.. i just cant be bothered to either fix it or find a 97 mtx ecu.. so ill go the lazy way.

My Timberline 97 is faster than your Timberline 97

But seriously, the RX8 18s do look very good in person, it fills up the wheel wells perfectly; I could see it looking a little better if the car was a couple more inches lower on coiloevers, but it looks pretty good as it is.
It was actually after I saw how much bigger Dan's rims looked on his car even though I had 17s that I started looking for 18s for my car.

You didn't mention the rear view mirror screen/camera, that thing is siiick

ur right i didnt... havent had time to break out the interior pics.. since 1 i havent finished yet.. 2.. camera has been taken to muskoka.

yes urs is faster... it also has a very burnt clutch atm :P

i would liek it lower.. but i got the blues and eibachs for 150. sooo i cant rly complain, if nething ... a lil chop on em will bring it down that tad bit... we will see how bad the rear sets when i put the lowering stuff on there...

Looks awesome. I know you said you like the quiet exhaust. I would slap a Flowtech Raptor on there with a nice tip. Only thing that stands out is that stock muffler. either way tho.
