What up all. Decided I should start a thread for my car as I just got a few things in the mail and should be slapping them on this week/end.
A lil backstory about me/the car:
This is the 4th car I've owned. Before that was:
1) 1990 Toyota Tercel ($500) Automatic
2) 2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 (Lease) Automatic
3) 2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 (Lease) Automatic
Currently-2015 Mazda 3 Sedan 2.5 Manual (s Touring)
On the Altima I had: Nismo full cat back, H&R Lowering Springs, Intake, ect.
I also ride motorcycles mainly, had to get a car again as I have been working on a lot of projects and I like to hike/backpack so it was hard to carry things around/hike with a motorcycle.
1) 97 Yamaha FZR 6
2) 2003 Suzuki GSXR 750
3) 1998 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R
4) 1984 Honda Magna V45 750
Currently-2005 Kawasaki Ninja 636
Anyway enough about all that. As this is the first real car (tercel didn't count but was a shit load of fun) that I own I will be really modifying it and trying to make it how I want. I'm focusing on power, then handling, then cosmetics. Rims/Tires/Drop are in the bag but I'm going to do those last due to money. I was also really disappointed when I lowered the '12 Altima on H&Rs. It rode great but it was a daily driver and I always had hella friends in there, constantly bottoming out (the car frame, bottom, not the tires) and speed bumps were a Beyotch. Would love to put it on air but I don't have money like that to throw into the car. Maybe down the line, who knows.
Current Mods Completed:
CS Short Ram Intake with K&N Heat Shield
Racing Beat Axle Back Exhaust
CS Short Shifter
JBR Shifter Bushings
JBR Heavy Shift Knob
CS Rear Motor Mount
Tanabe Strut Bar
Progress Rear Sway Bar

Future Mods Wanted:

Rims, Tires (really like the MB Battles)
Springs/Coilovers depending on money
Window Tints (want to do the front as well, clear, just for temps)
Plasti-Dip/Wrap: Grill V, Fog Chrome, Window Chrome, Back+Front Mazda Badges, maybe the stock rims for now.
De-Badge the Mazda 3 and Skyactiv emblems on the back (DONE)
Other random crap I can think of...
Pics of day 1 below. Thanks for reading! Cheers!
