The RX8 engine is really refined and quiet, sometimes you forget the engine is running lol.

Thanks, yeah the side reapeters are OEM fitment and just snap in place.

Replaced the orange glow inter bulb for an LED PCB....

Image

No flash, with the garage door closed so pitch black with only the interior light on....

Image

In daylight....

Image

Just about see the thick aluminium radiator, refurbished rocker cover and plug cover....

Image

It's a bit of a mess at the moment, but the battery will be going in the boot very shortly and I'll get round to a bit of a tidy up.

Also waiting for a set of F7 LCA...

Image

That's it for now.

I am in love with this crx :D Do you have bumper lights that are smoked or is there just something in place of where they go?

On the mugen bumper you have a lens that goes on top of oem indicators, it the lens that's smoked. It's a bit too smoked for me so gonna take them off and put a lighter smoke on them so that a bit of the orange from the indicator shows through.

Make sure you post up some pics of the F7 brace and the installation. I've been wanting one for my EF hatch. I've read that some drilling is required.

I don't mind the afterburner lights....much better than any 'altezza' style!
've seen it one other time before, what front bumper cover is that on the red one?
I actually think it looks decent.
