got my 35i. new stuff added dyno video/graphs, bbs wheels rotora bbk

GOt my blue 35i last thursday and had done some stuff to it.

First off to a friend's Car Detailing shop, gave it a good wash and wax







Followed by installing a JuiceBox3. No pictures as the installation was done in like ten mins? HP gains were crazy to say the least.



Today, went to get new shoes for the Z. Having an arguement with the girlfriend as she doesnt find the wheels any nice.







And to round up the day, got myself a short antenna for only 5 bucks

I think I desperately need 4 black-painted alloys for my 30i......I am not so disposed to tuning cars....but those wheels in black are simply a brilliant modification....
Well done!

I think either one looks good. The one in the front is a bit better. In my opinion, I think the black rims looks awesome, but they don't ready match with the deep sea blue. They will go well with black or white body... just my personal taste. BTW, what is the brand? orginal black painting? I would like to see if I can find them in Hong Kong.

I love both wheels - probably the back one a little more because I have never seen one like it before

reception on the mini antenna are surprising fine. I had use mini antenna for my previous s2k, and the radio channels were non existent.

2. current set of tires are non run flat. If you really need to know its yoko advan sports. I got a good deal from the guy who sold me his 1 week old breyton wheels and rubber


sigh i am still very clueless if I should stick using the black breyton or change to the BBE. particularly digging the 1 on the rears. any one knows what model it is ?

Can't say I do, but it sure is it's an interesting design. Unless I'm completely mistaken, the wheel on the other side should be a mirror image of the wheel in the picture. Otherwise the spokes would not be facing the same direction on both sides.

Did a quick photoshop to see what the wheel would look like if it was flipped horizontally, but not sure it looked any better/worse to me.

Personally think it looks best with the original wheels. Not a fan of black/gunmetal wheels with the dark blue, not enough contrast imho.

Lovely wax job though!
