just bought a 2013 RCZ GT diesel.
Never thought of them before but fell in love.
its pretty standard throughout which is fine but i want to tinker and have a play with both the looks and performance

perhaps remapping etc. im gonna get the arches wrapped etc.

Please can you comment or share pics woth some top tips and hints around what is possible and what i can do...

Thanks in advance.

Guten Tag Clint 👋
I no longer have an RCZ to take pictures of, these days I do a good line in photos of small Japanese coupes if you're interested.

I misread that completely for a moment there Ian, I thought you were advertising photos of small Japanese couples - that’s a completely different website 🤔🤣

Anyway, welcome Clint 👋 have a search through, there are lots of examples of mods you can do, some simple, some a lot more involved.

Here’s one of mine, so now you have to show us yours 😱 .....

Hi and welcome Clint, a word of warning modifying gets addictive 😄

This is my RCZ, like i said pretty standard. there are marks and things that i notice all over it which i will slowly get sorted. I'm looking forward to having fun with it. I need to get the alloys sorted too.

Go for black alloys , look cool and you don't need to wash the brake dust off every other day - that could be me being a bit OCD.

Do think anyone will notice it's not an RCZ?

That's 30mm lower, not sure I'm keen on going much lower. The sump is behind a nice metal bash plate but the diff and exhaust are hanging out the back in the breeze, and I'd rather not smack either of them. Besides, going too low especially at the rear introduces a world of pain regarding un wanted suspension geometry changes that need new parts to sort out.

Carry on with the RCZs now, forget I was here 😆

My mate is 6'5" and it was amusing seeing him squeezed in it.
I'm 6 foot and it's ok. I do seem to be quite broad shouldered though, as I sit across the seat bolster rather than between them.
