I removed the black Konig emblem from the center caps and put on Mazda ones from eBay. Here's closer shot from earlier this year (ignore wheel gap and orange side marker):


What's the offset on the 8"? Is it the same? I can't remember what you told me.

Man, those Mazda center caps looks sweet. I may have to copy you.

**EDIT**
And those are Ultimax rotors, aren't they?! Where'd you get them and what'd you pay? I think we had this discussion before, but I can't remember. lol!

The offset on the 8" is +45. I think yours (8.5") is +40. You should definitely do the center caps if you like what I did. On my car, I just didn't think the black caps looked good at all.

I found the thread where I posted the info. I couldn't remember the details now... But they're EBC USR rotors.
EBC Brake Rotors

It looks like you used the Konig center caps, but modified them with the flying M. Is that correct? How'd you do that, exactly? It does indeed look superior to the Konig logo, with black back ground.

Yep... the black emblem is glued to the center cap. There is a small hole on the back of the center cap that gives you access to the back of the emblem. I used a screw driver to push the emblem out (it takes some force), then cleaned the glue remnants off the center caps.

Then I got this:
BC coilovers VS. H&R coilovers-mazda_emblem.jpg

I bought mine from this eBay store, but they don't seem to have the Mazda ones anymore. Try emailing them and ask.
Parts, Car Emblems items in Millers Emblems Decals and More store on eBay!

Otherwise, there are other people selling the same thing. Just search eBay for "mazda center cap emblem" and you will find someone. I found this one today:
4 Pcs Mazda Wheel Center Cap Rim Emblem 2 3 MX Miata CX 7 9 mazdaspeed MPV Carol | eBay

The diameter of these mazda emblems is a little larger than the area where they will be glued on the center cap, so you have to trim the emblems a bit. These emblems are made of very thin aluminum, so I used a pair of scissors I don't care about (a snip tool would be a better choice) to trim a few mm. Then I used a grinder to smooth out the rough edges and make the emblem fit snug in the center cap. That's it... clean the center cap surface, remove the emblem's adhesive backing and stick it on the center cap.

Hope this helps!

Oh, man. You're alright. I don't care what TiGraySpeed6 says about you.

My frint shocks are torn to pieces after abuse from the crappy puertorican roads and 25k miles on H&R's plus 15k miles on my current RPM Sports. My objective would be to actually RAISE the height of the car instead of lower it as compared to my current RPM Sports. I was wondering if I would be able to achieve this using the BC's or if I have to go another route.

Here's my current height:
