I guess I'll go first. Clay barred and double washed with dawn my already glazed and waxed with Carnuba car in prep for Zaino Z-2 and Z-6 polymer wax treatment. Looking for that deep, deep, deep liquid gloss look that I can never get with Carnuba on my silver MZ3. Taking obsessive compulsive (anal) behavior to new heights for the new year.

2013 MS3 (sold) / 2011 MS3 (sold) / 2010 MZ3 (sold)

2014 Lexus IS350 Silver lining metallic/Nav Pkg (current daily driver)

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone...

My newest vice.

Picked up INjen SRI off AutoAnything. I am in no rush to put it on but in the end I know I am going to I would love to see a slight increase in the gas mileage of this beast. I am wondering if the sound is going to be intrusive but the car is not church quiet to begin with so what's a little extra growl right?

Replaced my fog light bulbs with silverstars. Much brighter. Replaced DRL with blue bulbs, looks much better the the yellow light the OEMs were putting out. Did the parking light delete. Pretty nice I only see amber when I'm signaling.

Damn you Hanzo!!!

Sounds like good stuff. Were the fogs easy to replace? Also I was not aware of DRL's on the Mazda or is it just specific models?

On the GT trim, they have a small "DRL" where everyone else has the high beam reflector. Mazda calls it Nagare inspired headlight accents or something like that. You can see them here...



There is just a small bulb behind the chevrons that light them up when the parking lights and/or headlights are on.



EDIT: You can see them lit up in Drew's signature right above my post.

I had blue bulbs in my Nagare accents, but later switched them out and now have amber led bulbs, so they match the amber marker/turn signal.
Also a couple of pics of my LED 3rd brake light conversion

Yeah I like the blue bulbs I put in, also did the amber parking light delete. Only comes on when I signal. I had to drop the bumper to get to the fogs, and the amber bulbs. I know some say you don't have to, but I have big freakin hands.

Damn you Hanzo!!!

I bought a few late Christmas presents for my 3 today. Ordered up a SURE Torq R3 Engine Mount, billet oil cap and washer fluid cap from Street Unit and a GodSpeed Project Duratec Intake Manifold off Amazon (knock-off Cosworth IM) for my pending tune and future engine build. I have some other goodies in the works also...but that's Top Secret and will also require me to replenish my checking account




// DPtune ECU Flash // Magnaflow Exhaust // Takeda CAI // 17x7.5 RPF1's // TWM Big TypeR Shift Knob // TWM Full Replacement Short Shifter // SRPracing pedals // GT LED Tail Lights // Redline Tuning Hood QuickLIFT // MS3 front brakes // MZ5 rear brakes // MSDS Header//Sure Motorsports rear mount // Massive Speed BSD // coming soon Cosworth MZ1 Cams
