    Unfortunately, you're right on the money. No one has them anymore, and if they do, they're missing the rear-left(?). I spent too much damn time looking for them myself, and gave up. They're pretty...

    Welcome! The P5's an interesting car to start modding with. It'll never win pulls N/A, and setting it up for turbocharging is a major pain, but that chassis will make you smile, and it has a style...

    Actually, dropping down the (very slightly) thicker grade-8 bolts was far easier than the last time! It fit the holes very nicely without scraping the threads, but it didn't jiggle around either....

    Aye man, glad I could give you some ideas.

    I run some Yokohama S.Drives, and they've done well for the deal price I got them at. But they're sure as hell not RE-71Rs, and a lot of people can run...

    Mazda6 (non-MSP) calipers, rotors, pads, etc are a direct drop-in to the Protege/Protege5's front spindle. It's a cheap big-break upgrade, and has done me well in my races. Slap in some aggressive...
