    swapped in an intermittent wiper stalk, bout a 10 minute job real straightforward. rear wipers still function as well.
    ahhh i love the daily driver mods.
    I did this upgrade too, and honestly I don*t understand why Mazda didn*t just install these at the factory

    Haven't done much, just new LED's for plate lights etc. Got an alignment after installing Moog camber bolt kits all around the car, -1.5 camber all around.
    Also installed some new tail lights, no more looking at those ugly round ones :^)

    Righteous man, how was installing those camber bolts? Might be a good fine-tune mod for the future, since my car's an understeer machine.

    If I was you though, I would've put more negative camber up front than in the rear. Give yourself better turn-in for those corners

    It wasn't too bad, loosening up and removing the old rusted bolts/nuts were the only issue I had. When I drove over to the alignment shop I had -3 camber on the rear lol. After talking with him we both settled on -1.5 all around, with how the tires would wear in mind. Might consider that in the future, maybe when I get a rear sway bar in and go in for another alignment.

    Looks like I got a good 2 years out of my $130 OBX exhaust before it started cracking up and getting all rusted up. Pretty set on a full racingbeat exhaust set up, paired with the corksport exhaust hangers.. seems to be about $500+$400 shipping to Hawaii. Anybody happen to know other places selling it? Or any other suggestions on an exhaust set up?
