CoachT's 2015 Mazda 3 Build Thread

But momma, everyone is doing it!

Just purchased a brand new 2015 Mazda 3 this week! It was my first Mazda purchase and I am loving it more and more as each day passes.

It came with the rims and window tint from the dealer and the only other mod I have done is plasti dip the front emblem. I am not sure if I like it but I will just have to see tomorrow when I see it in the light.

I plan on doing appearance mods first and then going for some performance upgrades aimed at better gas mileage and reliability.

Here she is the on the first day:

So here is a picture of the plasti dipped emblem. Honestly, I do not know what to make of it yet. I think I am going to like the blue, red, or orange better on my car.

Maybe it will look better once I tint my headlights and plasti dip the chrome trim in the front.

Haha, I know you do! I just feel like the blacked out emblems looks tacky sometimes. At least black with a dark color. I want the emblems to pop and to actually see them. But we will see how it looks once I tint my headlights and black out the rest of the chrome.

Just got the car back from the shop. I blocked out the emblems and chrome trim in the front and got the tail lights smoked.

I'm going to be plasti dipping teal the front emblem, back emblem, and badges next week. I will also be getting a brow. The tail lights look so good.

Here are some before and afters:
