After and Before
I bought my car just over a year ago now with some 85k miles. Just rolled over 106K with a lot of miles up and down I95.
It was only recently that I started doing any modifications to it.
Right now it has:
-Rpf1's at 17x7.5 with federal 595's maxed out at 225/45/17
-Megan Racing lowering springs at 1.8" in the front and 1.5" in the rear
-J2-engineering catback exhaust
I don't plan on doing much else to it/investing much more money into the car. As much as I love it, I'm moving out to Kansas in a few months and the CR-Z isn't the best for highway pulls.
I had a friend get me into auto crossing because of how she saw me drive on the road. I've gone to 5 events ever since with the last one in Daytona. It's so much fun whipping the little thing around the track, and despite being massively under powered, it carries momentum through corners just as good as miata's. If you're not afraid to push the 1.5 liters of screaming power to its limit, I highly recommend finding some scca events near you.
Here's a couple pics of it going around the track:
