Pics of PVC FMIC?

Dropped and de-winged looks nice.

Grass is nowhere to be found out here unless you water your lawn, I've been here for 6 weeks and it hasn't rained even once.

No PVC FMIC here.. I've done a few little bs "mods" to it, nothing real fancy

Eibach Sportline
PTP coilpack shield
Mopar surge valve adapter <-- sucks
spoiler, dodge emblem, and dual exhausts relocated to landfill
spoiler plugs
rolled bumper
baby seat...

...I dont see a spoiler on the first pic? What is a rolled bumper? What kind of exhaust do you have now? Def looks better lower, I dont doubt any car would improve from a drop.

The spoiler and duals were 86'd long ago, not since the before pic.. the exhaust is stock, the duals just unbolt and the exhaust now terminates under the car, instead of snaking through the medusa-like configuration Dodge put there. Rolling the bumper just tucks the excess bumper plastic under the car, creating a wide notch instead of two exhaust cutouts. Kinda like what people do with Miatas sometimes, only reversible.

I can not really tell if it looks good or not. There is a Dodge blocking the view on both pics.

You shouldn't have dropped it so hard; it looks like it compressed the suspension!

You need to get back behind the wheel of your Miata...Mazda deprivation is making you do stupid ****...like put money in a neon other than gas....good call on losing the spoiler though, looks like crap with it on the silver cars IMO.
