Another very good thread with lots of good, reasoned information. Thank you. I, like most, believe in working on handling issues one mod at a time, rather than throwing a bunch of mods together at the same time, hoping they work well together.
I have so much to learn, with still only one hour experience spiritedly driving a Mazda 3 on a curvy road.
I am immediately changing to a set of Michelin Pilot Sports A/S 3+'s, and as they have stiffer sidewalls than the OEM Dunlops, and as the A/S 3+'s are known for quick turn in, will try those out for a while, if necessary trying minor tire pressure adjustments to see how happy I then am with tires being my only initial handling change.
However, if I still want quicker turn in/less understeer, the next step would be the Progress RSB's (in their less firm setting). And if I want more improvement, will lastly add the Tanabe strut tower brace/bar, but I am not trying to change this car to an autocrosser/sports car circuit racer, just a "big fun" curvy country corner driver.
