    323 BF from South Africa

    Hi,

    As promised in my intro post, here are a few pic of my 1998 200e Mazda 323.
    It's running a 2liter 8V FE engine, but is carb fed. The wheels are from a 1993 200i 16V DOHC 323.

    It is still standard, as I have a 323 GLC 13B as my toy. It got 280000km on the motor and it is still running strong. No, I don't drive it like a oldman, it's seen 210km/h on the clock, but that doesn't happen so quick though......lol. At the moment I don't think I will be getting rid of it. There's a saying here that goes: " a Mazda man don't sell, he just buys more....."

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the compliments, much apreciated.

    @323Permin
    -The front lip is from a Toyota Cressida (don't no the model, will find out)

    @evilist
    -Seems like SA is good for at least one thing, stock BF's........lol.

    @DeeAOne
    - Like Evilist said, they produce them untill 2004, mainly the 1.3 B3 version (sedan, Hatch & half ton truck). Will post a pic of how it looked originally.

    @shoretiva
    -the bumpers and lights will still be available from the dealer.........just a thought

    I bought the car in Dec 2004, when it had 116000km on the motor. It got power steering, aircon, electric mirrors. I fitted a few things since I bought it: the black front bumper lip spoiler, mud flaps, a foot rest, clear indicators, stainless steel free flow exhaust incl a 4-1 branch (header), mag wheels and a 40mm lowering kit.

    lol,

    at the moment I don't have a decent video clip, but I will try my best to get a decent clip. Will keep you posted.

    A few years ago, my buddy and I fitted his 17" mags on my car, just to check how my car will present.

    It's a aftermarket item, and it is still available.
