Not much updates so far though i'll post up a few parts that i been purchasing over the past few months shortly!

As for your question Carbon, got the wheels slightly used from Japan. The specific wheel size i went with is not available here in the states.

Here's some pictures of the my ladies "luxury" hauler (2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature Edition Machine Gray Metallic) that we took to Yosemite during Memorial Day weekend.

It is surprisingly upscale in there. I'm honestly very impressed with it and do enjoy driving it all the time. The rosewood and maroon color is a very nice touch to the interior especially contrasting the black headliner and brushed aluminum.

Just an update for everyone...

RIP Mazdaspeed6, it is sad to see you go... After a long few weeks at work, i accidentally rear ended someone on the way home two weeks ago. Due to the Mazdaspeed6 being lowered, it sustained about $12k worth of damages and now is being totaled. I'm definitely going to miss the boost on her.





I've already put down a deposit on my new car while i'm waiting for the insurance check to come in. Can you guess what i'll be getting next?

Damn youre good! The speed6 are definitely getting rare but the car has aged. I'll miss the power but the bad cushions and receding leather definitely made it age. That plus no bluetooth or aux sucked as well. At least the rx7 has an aux and i need to put one on the rx8... lol.

Say hello to my new 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF Club Sport w/ BBS/Brembo package!!!

Awesome! Seemed like the logical next step.

That white is really nice in person too. Just noticed the mirrors are black which is pretty cool seeing that they match the wheels.

You'll have to take some pictures of that LEG center emblem duct for the 8, always thought those were pretty neat.

Yeah, i like the subtle details of the club. I do plan on getting the roof painted black and possibly the frame of the windshield as well. Time to buy some flyin miata stuff like the versus diffuser too.

Will do when i get it installed on one of the mazdaspeed bumpers.

Also, this just came in yesterday Yay for some goodies!!

Sorry for the late reply, i'll post some pics but the car actually has had nothing installed, just hoarding parts.

I unfortunately do not have a FB so i'm not active with that group though if people post on the forums local meets, i'm there. LOL
