Hi,
Heres a few pics of the car and spec etc and some future plans for it! As you can see I'm a bit of a pic whore!ha:mrgreen:
Recently went over to England, and came back with this:

023-5 by davemx-5, on Flickr

022 by davemx-5, on Flickr


Spec list:
- 1.6 Jap import
- S-ltd model (aircon, red leather interior etc)
- 11 months MOT
- 5 months tax
- 103,000 miles
- Great condition inside and out

Its had a fair bit done to it which includes:

- HKS exhaust system
- Jasma manifold
- Mazdaspeed ht leads
- HKS mushroom filter
- Front strutbrace
- Uprated clutch
- Coilovers
- Standard LSD
- Drilled and groved disks all round
- Greenstuff pads all round
- New 16x8 et10 Rota RBR's with brand new tyres (195/40 toyo t1r's on the rear and 175/50 Yoko's up front)
- Front tow strap
- Rear tow hook
- OEM front splitter
- Bride seats on Bride rails
- Interior roll bar
- Momo steering wheel

Car was featured in November's Fast Car magazine

The car came 90% of the parts to turbo it to round 150bhp, all I need is a flange for the manifold and a flange for the downpipe.
Dont really have much of a clue how to install it and set it up so will probably be on here asking for a lot of help!
I'm new here so heres a few pictures of the car and the work i'.m currently doing to it....

I have 90 percent of the parts to turbo the car, need to get adaptors made for the manifold and downpipe then need to get an intercooler and maybe a megasquirt ecu.

Plans are:
-HSD coilovers
-Hardtop
-Turbo it
-Rota bm8's 15x9
-Tidy up spitter and bumber then respray bumper and spitter
-Touch up any stone chips
-Spray the number plate panel metallic black
-Get clear/smoked side lights as I dont like the blacked out ones

Love those RB-Rs. Have only seen the same specs on Omegas.

Did the stock seat belts come red in the R limited?

Unless i'm thinking of a different car, I think i've seen this on Nutz. The wheels are a little too big for my tastes, but great looking car
Yeah its on nutz as well "badass 5" it was known as I think! Was going to go for bronze grid v's or 15x9 bm8's but moneys a bit tight at the minute!

Nice car, time for a real rollbar and remove the hood risers and you'd have yourself a winner.
Saving up for a hard-dog at the min! Shipping to Ireland is a problem!ha I like the hood risers have to say but I'll admit it does look a bit chavy!

Pics of your car have been on here for a while now. Glad you finally joined up. Love the wheel/height combo!
Cheers man! Where are the pics? Never seen any!

I did a 93 LE into my 95 R, and I too have those red seatbelts, love them.

NICE CAR-OP!
Cheers bud, they seem pretty rare, I'm trying to get my hands on the red bit of carpet that goes behind the seats on the high part where the roof folds down onto! Cant find it anywhere!

Yup, 106 in existence :)

You can see my build thread. I just did the whole carpet swap this weekend.

If you get the red carpet on the shelf, don't forget the red buttons:blaugh:

I done the repair myself with rattle cans and a spray can of Halfords Lacquer. Extremely happy with it as its my first time doing anything like it!
I still need to put on another coat of lacquer (waiting on the postman) and flat it and buff it, then I'll stick on my project-g rear wing!

The hardtop completely transforms the car, its much quieter inside and I can hear the stereo over the exaust now!ha But it feels even more of a go-kart now than ever!
Will have another update when I get the rear wing on!
