    Did you get the wheels sorted?

    If not, I'd buy 18x 7.5 and put 225 45's on it immediately.

    Will make the speedo more accurate, better grip and better performance if you get a nice light weight alloy.

    And congrats.

    Sitting quietly in the garage. Picked it up yesterday with the factory shadow chromes (remoteGT's old rims) fitted. Few teething issues regarding a few things with the dealer, but all sorted and happy now.
    Still trying to find a comfortable seating position, the pulsar was like driving a kart, but now I actually have to drive properly. Rev range is alot different too, and the 1st/2nd boost limiting takes abit to get used to, as does an electronic throttle.
    Really ammused by the R2D2 style headlight washers and need to do something with the factory sub as the trebble is giving my ears a good workover. They should have done with the rear door speakers and gone for true rears I think, up higher.

    Best thing about the car.. picking up third and gently squeezing the throttle, i think mazda have done a great job with managing the turbo size to the engine for torque delivery. My old 180 used to snap my neck off, and the liberty RS was similar to the MPS, but just a smidge too much lag.

    Worst thing about the car.. I need one of those Jap poles they put on the front left to see where the front of the car is, the shape of the bonnet is decieving and will take some time to get used to how close I can go.
