Hi Amar 808.
I really like your car. It looks great and the pictures are also very good, a pleasure to the eyes.
I'm also considering a 808 or a 818 as it is called in my country. Guess they didn't want people confusing them with Peugeot because of the "0" in the middle.
There are 2 choices. A rather beaten coupe with the round headlights or a very well taken care of sedan, just like yours.
But there is one thing that bothers me. It seems that it's very difficult to get hold of parts to upgrade items like the suspension which is not the best we can find in it's stock configuration. Live axle, leaf springs in the back, the front is also not the best kind...
Am I correct? Is it easy to do a quality upgrade? What would the options be? What are your current specs, if I may ask?
I'm asking because the car will have the company of my friends Ford Escort MK2, BMW 1602, Datsun 1200, Toyota KE70 (a car that I let escape to a friend as I found he would be able to take much better care of it...it was a mistake
I miss the car already even though he takes excellent care of it), etc. A very nice group of RWD owned by people who like to enjoy their cars and the company of theirs friends
In comparison all this cars have a wide range of available equipment which allow them to upgrade. The KE70 with it's very reasonable AE86 compatibility, the Datsun with race material, the Escort has an incredible range of choices with specifically design new components, etc.
So can the 808/818 hope for the same? Is there any company that makes new and specific components for this model, upgrades in suspension, steering, etc? Or is there any more recent Mazda model that can be a suitable "donor" for an easy and efficient upgrade?
Sorry for the long reply. Wish you can help me or anyone else that knows the answer.
Best of luck with your project.
