Did you go bronze with the wide opens too? Will look sharp on the VR. IIRC they'll be your autox wheels so what tires you gonna run?

Yes I did! Love that color! I really like wheels with something of a dish.... Gives the car a cool stance factor IMHO! ;)

Very nice indeed! And the stock wind blocker is a joke...why even bother Mazda?

Ya, this provides about a 70+% improvement with wind noise and blowing, for 50$ it was a great deal!

Yes bruce, now that I have a garage again I'm going to catch up on some of my projects, one is the car and the other is my motorcycle. My xl175 dirt bike that I'm going to tear down and rebuild. Robin is heading south for a few months to watch the new grandson so I'll have my projects to occupy my time��
