It is birthday time! And a present (for myself) has arrived yesterday!
So let’s start unboxing a package from Auctions Yahoo containing an incomplete set of Toyota Carina GT-R AA63 mudflaps! Read the rest of this entry →
Welcome to another Down on the Street video!
Mazda MX5 NB
Today’s car spot is a Mazda MX5 NB with a very interesting body kit. I found it parked on the market square in my home town in front of the cinema. From a far distance I spotted the little MX5 and the closer I got the more interesting it became. I noticed the twin exhaust pipes and the wide flared fenders and decided it was definitely worth making a video of this car.
I.L. Motorsport bodykit
It took me a while to find the manufacturer of the bodykit and I only managed to find this picture of it. The bodykit has been developed by I.L. Motorsport in Germany somewhere in 2003 and thirteen years later there is nothing more I can find out about it.
Sex Spec Styling

The deflectors weren’t entirely new and one of the rear deflectors even had a part missing: Read the rest of this entry →
JDM Trivia #11: Nissan Cima Y31 Mirror Wipers
Will that fit on my Honda?

However a few days later I found my car in foggy weather and the fog created lots of small water droplets on my mirrors. Even the mirror heating option did not resolve this. Then I realized I was wrong: I need a set of these amazing mirror wipers on my Honda! Read the rest of this entry →
Mazda MX5 NB Super Bird
The Mazda MX5 NB is the second generation of the Mazda MX5. Just like the NA it is small, lightweight and nimble and it is just an awesome car! Someone has made this NB just a little bit more awesome…
At first I thought this was another one of those stickerbombed Mazda MX5s but as I got closer I noticed there was a whole different painting on the fender. I have no idea what it is supposed to be but it looks like someone painted a lot of birds on it.
