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

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



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



In daylight....



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



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...



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.
