The wheels set the car off perfectly. Love the red nuts!

Wow, looks amazing! I love the colour combo and stance. I recently had a flat spot on the lip removed from one of my meisters so I second chase_d's comment.

I hope they repaired your Meisters ok?
They are such a nice rim and I think the perfect classic that just suit the era of the MR2 so well.

Came up perfect. I didn't notice the flat spot until I was cleaning the polished lip and I could feel it. 
 
I agree!

Received another toy today,
A nice new eboost street 40 also waiting on a new turbo timer then I can start wiring them both in.
 
Hoping that once I have the new exhaust and the boost controller in that I can awaken a couple of extra killer wasps

Now also have a new slim line turbo timer that will take up a bit less space in the interior, and I'm also waiting on a boost gauge thanks to Carmikey who had one still in the box which worked out well as I can get it sooner than ordering one from the US.
Once I have all the bits I can wire them all in and see how it responds.
 
Also looking forward to dropping the car off to Hi-tech on Thursday to have the new exhaust done.

That's good news about the boost gauge. Is it Omori or JST?

Its the JST gauge but like you said they are the same they just say JST so as long as it is accurate than that is the main thing.
And yes the exhaust should be ready just in time for the weekend

Can you go a bit lower on the rear? Maybe 1-2cm.

I could go a bit lower but if I go much more lower I wont be able to get in or out of my drive way as it is very steep unfortunately. 
I am also concerned if i go much lower that it will scrub on full compression when having a spirited drive through some nice twisty roads so I will see how it goes on the run this coming weekend before I make any more changes to ride height.

Very nice.  Never thought of coloured wheel nuts.
 



I like blue on a red car. I have a set of blue alloy nuts ordered for the SDUB.
I usually steer away from blue nuts, though they are good on a car
