RX-8 Nose Kit Racing Beat offers the Type I Nose kit for the Mazda RX-8 application. Designed in Japan under the direction of Racing Beat, this nose kit offers a dramatic new look to the RX-8. The design, modeling, and production molding of the body components for the RX-8 were developed and completed entirely in Japan. Once finished, the molds were sent to the US for production of the final components. The Type I Nose is a complete replacement nose unit and utilizes the stock mounting hardware and mounting points. The large horizontal grill openings allow adequate airflow for the oil coolers, air conditioning and water radiators.

Have you ever wondered why the upper two-thirds of the center mouth opening on your RX-8 is non-functional? Go ahead and look and you will notice that area behind the plastic mesh grill is actually closed with a "fake" grill.

The reason for this quite simple, if this area was open you would see a large "bumper bar" assembly (topped with a piece of Styrofoam for 5 MPH impact protection) located directly behind this opening. For this reason, many of the various aftermarket noses that feature a large central opening must hide this bar with some type of screen, cover, grill, etc..

Racing Beat designed the Type I nose to completely cover this bumper bar and eliminate the need for an additional insert or cover. If required, an optional Fog Light Relocation Kit is available to reposition the stock OEM driving lights to a location inside the central mouth opening. In addition, if you want to add the genuine Mazda OEM emblem to your new nose, these available at a very reasonable price. Produced exclusively in the United States using high-quality fiberglass materials, the Racing Beat nose kit is ready for final fitting and sanding prior to painting. Complete instructions are provided for removal of the stock nose, repositioning of the driving lights, recommended preparation steps prior to painting, and final installation.

Shipping Notice: The size of the nose kit requires that this component be shipped via truck freight. Freight charges will vary depending on your location, if you require an exact freight quote prior to shipping; we suggest you contact us for complete information.

REVIEWS

I red'all the parts in the order I placed and installed them in my car yesterday. I am beyond happy. The install went without a hitch. The results were fantastic. The new brakes track straight, make no noise, and stop the car authoritatively. The new rotors look pretty cool, which we all know isn't all that important, but having 6 women offer to bear your children, because your car looks SO cool is a good problem to have. Thank for great products and service.

Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G
