SuperHans 3 Sport - 2004 - Blue - RX8 WHEELS FITTED
« on: September 12, 2014, 03:01:54 PM »
Hi, I've had this a few months now and I'm starting to some a few mods so thought I'd get some pics up!

Here it is how I bought it:










So far all I've done is an oil change and fitted some wind deflectors:



Next plans are to get it lowered (probably 30mm just to get rid of a bit of arch gap!) and fit some RX8 18's, which I bought yesterday. I will be picking them up tomorrow so will assess whether they need a refurb/new tyres. They're currently in black which I'm not too sure on, but if they just need a quick touch up I may keep them that colour.

I will update with pics once I have them!

The other thing I want is a clear fog light lens for the rear if anyone can point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Well I fitted my new alloys and here is the result: (Excuse my poor camera skills  :-\)













Next on the cards are:

-Set of new tyres
-Lowering springs, probably 30mm
-Tinted windows
-Clear rear fog light

Comments/criticism welcome  ;)

 ;) I like em but then again I'm biased  ;D
Definitely get it lowered and the look will be even better have a look on sg petch parts website for the eibach spring kit for your model/year I think it's cheaper than eBay if my memory serves me correctly .

Thanks haha! Yeh I did want to get it lowered but now I might not. Still unsure. It's just the roads are terrible round here and our driveway is 1/4 mile of potholes.......

Do you have the Eibach springs? What is the ride like? I'm having trouble finding them on the SG Petch website  :-\

Hi the above link is to the page with the lowering kit on
I have the 09-13 kit from mazda and I like the ride and handling yes it's a little harder but noticeably better handling, hope it helps.
Sorry for delay I've been preoccupied with another project,,, building myself a fixie/single speed bike!  :P

That kit is for 06-10 models though - I'm struggling to find some for my year on that site...

I have another project too, a 106 GTi. Was a bit of an impulse buy, plus it needs a new engine but it's just something to play with!





So the progress on the 3 will be slow too!  ;)

Here's a new pic to keep the thread alive! Nothing really changed but here's a pic or 2 of it nice and clean  ;D







I'm still debating getting the windows tinted and lowering it. I'll probably get it done at somepoint!

Nice job man!
Just want to encourage you on the tints and clear fog light! I have a winning blue hatch myself and the tinting really made the the back look awsome but I can't take my eyes off it since my clear fog lamp arrived!  ;D
I also swapped the indicator bulbs with chrome coated ones because I didn't like the stock bulbs being still visibly amber behind the clear lenses.
Keep up the good work!  ;)
