As Jon posted a picture, here's something a little more currant , although soon it will look different again soon when the new front splitter goes on.

Here's a pic of my other car as well  :)

Look  at that, smooth as ever, well at least with the RX-8  :wee_hee:

Seriously it's an excellent picture and both the car and you have promoted the longevity of a well looked after Rotary very well for years now  :bravo_2:

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
