    I didn't notice it to be very understeery? there a reason the rear swaybar is done?
    i've heard this too... i've read it was secretly built to go sideways but i've never deliberately gotten it sideways before... only once by accident in the wet i lost control of it going around a corner maybe a tad fast for the conditions and i lost sense of what way the front tires were pointing as they weren't gripping but when they did i was all over the place... wasn't a fun experience... but you learn from your mistakes so it hasn't happened since, that was before i did any mods too...

    i thought the car was great to start with too but after a while i started noticing it wasn't turning as sharply as i might have liked it too, the swaybar definitely helped with this, it really stiffens up the rear and forces it around the corner without going wide, you could probably get it sideways easier with the swaybar as it definitely feels like the rear comes around more, lol, it's an upgrade worth doing if you like to go hard through hills or something, but do the diff mounts at the same time if you're going to do it as you need to take the diff off to put it on, lol

    In my 5th Gen, I used top average 9.5L/100K 10.5 in a bad week. In this I usually get between 10.5-11.5 and 12.5 in a bad week. So from my 60L tank about 500K's you'd expect 600 from a 5th gen Prelude.

    So compared to a WRX of the same year, this is faster doing about 5.7Sec 0-100. It's also a **** TONNE nicer on the inside.

    Mazda's pull bitches. You'll notice the one I have trapped in the passenger seat.

    bonnet stickers and rims look good you should get that spray on tint stuff for those orange side markers to go with the black stripes and rims, but up to you of course

    I'm going for a black on silver look with a splash of red.

    Next are the calipers which are going red.

    Then unless my purchase falls through SRI with airbox and next month front slotted rotors and new pads possible sway bar then hopefully off the Wakefield for some laps.

    By them I'm predicting nee rubber then an Cobb AP and I'll probably let it go unless I want some more noise in which case I'll do something with the exhaust.

    sounds good, i'm trying hard not to spend too much money on my MPS, haha, have you considered the badgeless front grille? i might get one sooner or later, not sure it's worth the $150-$200 though, but it looks really nice on the car

    With the wheel on:



    and excuse the poor lighting but here's the overall thing, the photo doesn't really make the calipers pop, but the colour of the calipers is well represented in the other photo
