We look forward to!

I will be sure to take pics while the install of the new coilovers are being done. Looking forward to dropping the ZHP another inch....love the look of a lowered sedan....not necessarily a slammed one since the roads up here in New England are not the best for slammed cars....

Mmmhm well I'm about to get a rogue dms exhaust but no ones talked about if its too loud for neighborhood's like with out pushing hard just like around 2k rpms, really I don't care about loudness but my previous car was a Mazda6 3.0 v6 and it had straight pipes and apperently some neighbors complained

Today I just swapped out my factory rear diffuser for the carbon fiber diffuser my friend John sent me

Thanks John! Looks awesome on Imola







While swapping out diffusers, I also polished my tail pipe since I had easier access to them. They now look snappy







Very pleased with the results

Coming from you that means a lot! I have been tracking your build thread and have to say that seeing how you have set up your car has inspired me to work on mine! Love how you have your car set up....hopefully someday I will have my car at the same ride height as yours... Thanks for the complement!!!

I went a different route....as for exhaust, all I need to do is replace the OE headers and relocate cats to section 1 (possibly install a set of 200 cell cats)

A very good friend of mine received my old silver cube trim because he has always taken care of all my coding needs for both my ZHP and ///M. I decided to let him keep the silver cube trim after he told me he would love to have a set to put in his ZHP
