i shoulda guessed. IMO: 15" rims are usually the only size that looks right on a miata. I find it wierd that the miata is the only car that has a limit on wheel size visually speaking.

What do the steering wheel buttons do? Other than make it look like a video game, I mean.

Adjust the lights.

I did tried to adjust the screws, tried to get the modules pointed as low as possible but either the modules popped off from brackets or same result. I guess maybe I have to mod the bracket's mountings to get them to mount a lil higher but there'sn't much space between Hella modules and CF housings.
Any help or pics with the right pattern?
Thanks

APR sure got the shape and weight right(about 4-5lbs) but the CF weave on the exterior looks like crap if you look closely in person(pics lied, looks really shinny and all huh).
I still love it though.

I really dont care for the carbon fiber actually. If I get one (and I really want one, just not for the 400+ that they want for them) I would get it in fiberglass or whatever else kind of material and just paint it. For me the coolest thing about it is its shape, and I LOVE duckbill spoilers.

Should be just 3 bolts to adjust the lighting. One for up and down and two for left and right.
