After a short introduction, a few pics I took a week after I bought the car:





The car's going to be 95% stock at all times, I don't want to do too many things to it, because I like it the way it is from the factory. Just a few cosmetic changes here and there and that's it :)
The first thing that had to go were stock 16" wheels, the new ones come from Mazda 5, the fit is 100% perfect, good width, good offset, same hub diameter. Tires are 205/50/17 Toyo R32, also stock on Mazda 5.

Nice color. I don't see too many around. I thought it was called Sand. Enjoy.

What was I thinking when I said I don't want to do too many things to the car and leave it 95% stock? :confused: I guess once I tried, I'll never stop doing this to the cars I own and like....

Started with this:


Then bought this:


8x19", forged, made by BBS for Mazda RX-8 R3, perfect fit for the Soul. There are some of the lightest rims in this size, 9,4kg each!
I'll be painting them pastel blue (RAL 5024), tires are going to be 225/40/19 Federal 595 Evo.

Winter setup is Mazda 17" rims, same color, with some 215/50 tires. At the moment I'm running stock 205/55/16, the car's dirty all the time and still stock, so no pics :D

Here is my 2013 "Dune" base model 6 MT . . . with the Alloys from a + model and "pimped out" a bit to break up the color. Do you think it is too much "stuff"?
