TGIF: Tijmen's 1992 Mazda 323 GLX 1.6i 16V

Thanks to Tim from the Netherlands for sending this picture of his car. I love the clean look and the stance is perfect! Here's what he says about his Mazda:
My car is a 1992 Mazda 323 GLX 1.6i 16V. It is equipped with a full TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing) body kit (front and rear bumpers, sideskirts and a roof spoiler at the rear) and a TWR leather steering wheel. A dealership in Amsterdam imported the TWR kits for both the 323 hatchback and the 626 Coupé. My Mazda was modified by them when it was new.

The car also has the TWR suspension kit, which means it is lowered approximately 35 mm, and the suspension is *a lot* stiffer. Because of this the car handles incredibly well in corners (which we have a lot of in the Netherlands :-P ) and at high speeds, but the ride is a bit bouncy when the road gets rough.
