Car is currently in 3 or 4 pieces at a friends shop. I'm taking it back to stock and trading it in on a 2017 3 or CX-3 (depends on my mood at date of sale!)

You can definitely use parts from more than one manufacturer. AirLift (to my knowledge) doesn't make any actual air struts/bags for the 3rd generation Mazda 3 - just the first and second generations - so you'll have to source your front struts and rear bags from someone else, like BecauseBags or AirForce.

At ride height, it's like driving in a higher end sedan.

Kind of off topic, but I always loved your car. Why are you taking it back to stock and trading it in for a newer model if I may ask?

It's a lease, and I didn't like the buy-out option.

The intention was to buy it out at the end of the lease, but not at the price point that they brought to the table.

I'm in the same boat as you were in then. Leasing this guy for 3 years, and now after all these mods, was planning on having to buy it at the end.

Isn't the buyout price the same as the residual value that was agreed upon at the signing of the lease? Did you just need something faster or was the residual value just too high when you signed up for it?

Appreciate the info
