I must admit, the 3 hatch with appearance package looks pretty good. I'm a little surprised the RX7 wheels fit, too!

Had to use a 5mm spacer to clear the front rotors. Wheels are a 50mm offset.



I listened to their sound clip, too quiet for me.
Have you replaced the batteries in your hearing aid lately? :ROFLMAO:

All in good fun as I know Bruce has a good ear. I love the sound of his NC MX-5!

Speaking of sound, Corksport called me today and the new exhaust for the 3 is shipping! Yeah.

Probably take a week or so but they're 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

Where did you order your Corksport?
From CorkSport.

Soooo, the exhaust arrived today.

Swapped in in less than an hour.

Love the sound. Nice deep tone, very happy with the result.

That looks really nice, I bet it sounds great as well...Would it be possible to see a pic of the new exhaust installed from the rear?

Thanks Antoine. She's a daily driver so no lower. The wheels are off my miata as I replaced those with Enkeis.

Needs a wash badly
I recently saw a 2020 or 2021 3 hatch and it is obvious that the gap above each tire is less than it was in my generation 3. I didn't like my car's gap so I bought Eibach springs and Koni adjustables. It looks about right, now.

Sure. I will post one today.

Looks nice. I installed Eibachs as well. No Koni's available for the 4th gens. I emailed Koni and waiting to hear back.

Konis are great. I have them on my MX5 as well. They tend to lower the car a bit more than do the springs.
