i have a thread about this at another forum and still have no straight answer on this. I am waiting though. Did a super rough photoshop job to see if I liked the look, here it is just in case you wanted to see.

forgive the two different lighting sources

A guy on our Toronto forums had the dealer install it before he picked it up. It DEFLY fits perfectly on the 2010 HATCH.

Pics for proof?

I was under the impression that both the front bumper and the front fenders were not directly carried over from the 3 to the Speed3.

Mazda isn't going to just stick wider wheels in the same wheel well. Lol. I'm just questioning if the hood is a different width.
You are mistaken, the 2010 Mazdaspeed3 rims are 18x8, just like the non R3 RX-8s. Lots of different size rims go into the same wheel wells dude. Not saying the Mazdaspeed fenders don't flare out more, because they very well may. Doesn't mean the hood won't fit. Also, I have read that Mazda smartened up and went to great lengths to try and keeo the forward section of the car the same on the 2010+ models between the hatch and sedan. Not 100% sure if they are or not.

Actually, the 2010 MS3 rims are 18x7.5. Over here, we like to use pictures for proof.



Rest of the suspension/wheel pictures

So far, haven't seen any actual pictures from Fu5ion with the MS3 hood. Here's his thread introducing himself and talking about it, but no pictures. His most recent thread talks about getting the car soon, and that the dealer is installing the hood. Even his sig is talking about having all these options despite not actually having the car yet.

For the sake of this guy, I kinda hope it fits so he doesn't end up feeling like a tool.
