Really sweet looking. My Sport on 17's, though practical (and not lowered), certainly does not look "the business" like yours... Very nice.

I guess, though, you really do have to be careful re anything you might encounter by way of lousy pavement or debris on the road. Of course any prudent driver would, but sometimes damages are unavoidable.

Nice car!

Nice car!
Thank you. My last car, 93 Protege, was lower than this and was my only car for 10 years and I drove it everywhere and knew where it would go, where I could force it to go and when I would need to hold up traffic and turn around, and out of habit, I drive this car with the same principals, even though it is not as low, but the front is longer, so it equals out.

I drive my M6 750+ miles a week / 5,000+ miles a month so let's see how these kyb excel's hold up, lol

Thanks. It’s an entirely different feel. I realized once I posted the ‘After’ picture that I should have turned the lights on the get the same red glow I had in the ‘Before’ picture.

Picked up license plates at the dealership and took the opportunity to renew the relationship with the parts dept manager. (still won't be running a front plate)

Also picked up 3 OEM filters (they threw in brass washers) and recorded the first oil change into the dealership database (exactly 1,501 miles) with 0w20 Kendall GT-1 high zinc, OEM filter. Dealership pricing for oil changes was a bit more than I can do myself, even with specialized oils, and I like having a clean modern car to work on that isn't 58+ years old and having to plan every potential piece of hardware that might break every time you touch something.

Input from the oil change: Nice to see that Mazda made an adequate service panel where you can drain the case and replace the filter without oil going everywhere (Looking at you, Mazdaspeed3 undertray designer!!!!). First time using 0w20 and wowwwwwwwww is it thin! The previous 10 or so oil changes I have done were on pre-60's hot rods which take 20w50. That stuff is like molasses in January compared to this stuff!

9 cars and 2 parking spots, this doesn't make any sense.

Footwell LEDs (Red)

My 2018 6 Sport. Had my film and electronics guy install red LED ambient footwell lighting. Wired to the exterior lights circuit, so when the parking or headlights are on, these are on too. Can't see the lights unless it's dark, which is really the point. You might not even see them in the photo, unless you turn off your lights.

When something is in the footwell at night, the red LEDs illuminate it well. No more feeling around at night to find something that fell down there. Will be easy to see right away. Because they are dim and red, night vision is totally unimpaired.
