The big thing is that the grip really well and they are quiet. They're not as cool looking as some of the other tires out there - but the performance is more important to me.

    Yeah I got the full set of Rotora Slotted Rotors and Front and Rear EBC pads. The OEM rotors were just all rusty around the hub, and they were warped to hell and back. I love the way it all feels now.

    Well, nothing this weekend (MS-150 bike ride - anyone want to help sponsor me?) In the last month I've added Goodyear F1-GS D3's... an AEM CAI... RainX Fast Wax and a dusting... and 550 miles in two days, some of which on the fantastic roads of WV and rural PA. Ni-ice.

    F1-GS D3's = awesome, can't say enough. A very-slightly-softer "feel" but quieter and awesome in the wet.

    AEM CAI: Holy Turkey Gobble, Batman! More "area under the curve", better throttle response, a leafblower/sucking sound on part throttle, and a louder turkey gobble (especially with the WW vented hood!).

    Oh - RainX Fast Wax (blue spray bottle) = WONDERFUL stuff. I'm not super-anal on my car's finish (it's hail damaged from new after all), but this stuff beads water like there's no tomorrow, and leaves a teriffic shine in no time at all.
    Was.... '03 black MSP 1108: Stealthy '03.5 wheels, Delsing rear bushing kit, DaveB, HiddenHitch, Ichiban knob, F1 GsD3's

    Is... Mini Cooper S Checkmate, Astro Black (same as MSP Black Mica, but with more blue flake!)

    I'm new to forums and I just bought my MSP a few days ago. I ordered a Greddy Type RS BOV, and CAI to get started. Definate plans for a Front Mount Intercooler system. Also from looking at the pics the CF front grill is pretty nice too so I may pick one of those up.

    Did a 3 step polish plus wax on it, took me a little over 4 hours..Also painted the upper and lower grille with Gloss Black paint with multi-color metallic flake like the stock Black Mica to match the hood. This was Sunday though, I'm slacking at posting.

    Earlier this week, I re-shoed the stock MSP wheels - these are the real new shoes and UPS dropped them off yesterday. Imported from Japan, 18 x 7.5 x 48mm offset w/ 215/40/18 Pirellis (center cap withheld for guesses - hint the manufacturer makes automotive lights) the finish matches the 2003.5 MSP Racing Harts and the combo weighs in lighter.

    Yesterday I took my car in to be serviced at Cory-Fairbanks Mazda (located in the Orlando Florida area). They have always treated me respectfully and professionally, from the service manager to the technicians, the latter of which I have been impressed with. I should also add that they have never given me any grief about the modifications I have done to my car. Here's what was done:

    (1) An oil and filter change using Amsoil 10W-30 and the OEM filter.

    (2) Mounting and balancing of my Goodyear F1 GS-D3 tires. I concur with everything Ping said about them. I purchsed them from Tire Rack for $72.31 each, including shipping and the $100 rebate (not to mention that I will get the soundtrack of the "Cars" movie too).

    (3) An alignment, which was sorely needed, and

    (4) The front rotors were turned (under warrenty).

    All this work was performed at 25,000 miles. I might have been able to squeeze another 5,000 miles out of the Potenza 040's, but the noise level and impact harshness were beyond my threshold of comfort.
    Modification \n (1603)\ the making of a limited change in something; also : the result of such a change

    Performance:末Unichip PNP kit ($787.50)末JapTrix custom tune ($500)末2.5" Apex j-pipe/midpipe with high flow catalytic converter ($399)末TurboHoses side-mount intercooler and hardpipes ($960)末Injen cold air intake ($245)末Boost Sciences reflux diverter valve ($129)末AXR clunk bracket with greasable bushings and collar clamps ($181)末Coolingmist 150 psi vari-cool controller alcohol/water injection kit ($407)末Techna Fit stainless steel braided brake and clutch lines ($100)末Denso iridium IK22 spark plugs ($48)末JE2613890 PCV valve ($25)末Mazda PCM flash ($0)

    Monitoring:末Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite electronic boost/vacuum gauge ($154.52)末Auto Meter steering column mounting cup ($15.99)末Linear Logic ScanGauge II ($169.95)

    Wheels look good. I'm guessing those are the PIAA mesh wheels?

    I didn't do much this weekend. Did an oil change and washed the car. The other thing I did was I took apart my rear deck and adding a shitload of weather stripping foam to dampen vibration. I had a bad vibration when driving and on the highway. it was more like a buzzing noise that plastic makes. I noticed a few screws were loose back there, so I tightened them down. Great news, no more vibration, took about 30 mins from start to finish. Very easy to do if you were thinking about doing it.
