Well, I'm back!
The Lantis ain't though - really a shame, it's hibernating in the garage this year now. I also sold the brake and engine upgrades and will sell the MOMO wheels and maybe the leather interiour as well.
That said, haven't given up on it at all, just can't afford to have 3 cars registered at the same time and while i drive the Roadster this summer, my gf will drive the 323F BG that still runs like a charm :)
As soon as things work out (especially job-wise), the Lantis will be back since i really miss it badly. Will be a bit softer though, maybe with more streetable dampers and stay a 1.5 (since petrol prices are climbing without stopping and i've now got the MX5 for fun). So it'll be back to the roots and i'll just drive it as my daily just like 10 years ago :)
In the meantime, i got a set of these:
Image
Will fit some 195/50 16 tires (better for every day use) as soon as possible.
That's it for now, we'll see how it goes...
By the way, if anyone's interested, i started a blog:

Greetings to all who remember me :)
Chris

Hi Mazda friends,
january '17 has passed and this means, my lantis has been with me for 16 years now! :cheers:


At the moment the car is hibernating and awaiting spring. It now has been done about 220k kms and still makes me happy every time i drive it :)

However, time has taken its toll and i have to invest some work this year to keep the car in good condition. Of course, this will also mean: upgrade time :)
To celebrate the anniversary, i bought a very JDM present, as can be seen below:
Image

I'm looking forward to this summer 8)
Cheers,
Chris

Hi HMT, i have a question about the sideskirts you have on the BA.How/Do they get along with the standart jack?Or you have other one?
I really like how your car looks.Clean curves,simple and yet sporty look.(trying to do mine that way but still a no go) :lol:
Let me know about the skirts, because i'm planning to mount them soon.Thanks!
Continue with keeping all your Mazdas in good shape!

They allow access with the OEM jack, no problem. They were sold through Mazda dealers in the 90s so it would be strange if there were problems...

Ok, since i really was not too happy with my old Emphaser EA4150 amp, I got a new one:
Audio System X-Ion 160.4
Image
It's obviously quite large but still fits the spare wheel compartment. Here it is next to the old Emphaser:
Image
Image

Installed it at the weekend and i'm pleased with the results. This amp now really has control over the speakers :)

Furthermore, the car received fresh oil and ignition wearables. Even found a set of OEM Mazda / NGK Platinum spark plugs in my parts storage :)
Image

All of this was topped up with a tank of Aral Ultimate fuel to clean the injectors and just because spring is almost here. 8)

Nice! Still on top of all the maintenance!

I'm finally able to get the F through the yearly inspection and first thing to be upgraded after that is the sounds system!

Ok, to recap the current status:
The car is off the road since November 2017 and currently hibernating in the garage. I got a replacement for daily duty in form of a 323F BJ Sportive, so there will be no more winters for the Lantis. That said, since I have it, I only drove it in winter in '01-'05 and '13-'16, so it's still one of the best preserved BA in my country :)

This was the last wash in November:
Image

And it's current hideout
Image

At the moment, I have not decided what to do with the car.
Fact is, i want some K-series V6 in my life. However, I've put quite a bit of effort into the BP by now and I am happy with the engine in general. Also, i still have heaps of parts for it and I like the spare part situation for the BP a lot better than for the V6.
So I might end up getting another car with a V6 instead (although this would raise the car count even more).
Alternatively, i could get a donor car (or two actually) for the V6 swap and just leave it until i feel ready to proceed (although this would mean high upkeep in terms of garage fees).
I will have to figure this out. Until then, I will slowly work on getting it back in top shape whenever there is time.
