Sure why not.
Here it is, almost bone stock. I lost my first picture of it when I broke my last laptop.
Right after I got my tints on.

Had them lowered on prokits first

Bought some used EKM3

Had the tails laminated, and soon removed them.

Sideskirts, and nightshaded the tails.

Then sold the pro kits, the EKM3 and bam, you have the car I have now.

Very nice looking car!

How bad was the rubbing in the rear with that wheel setup before you rolled them?

Terrible, until I got an alignment.
Had to get 2. First one I went to a Mazda dealership recommended by my friend. Cost me $118 and did a terrible job. He is no longer my friend.
The second time it cost me $65 + tax and they did a superb job.
The roll wasn't reeeeally needed.
But it opened up the option to add in 5mm spacers in the back when I want.

Some people asked for a guide for my lights. I don't necessarily have a guide, but I did take pictures.
1. Remove Front Bumper

It's easier than you think. Unless you have a RHO plate that needs to be super glue'd into place. Screw you RHO

2. Slowly Heat Lights (Seals)

2010+ Mazda 3 lights are too large to fit into your oven, so you'll have to use a heat gun on low.

3. Slowly Pry Apart

Don't pull it off until it's all ready to seperate.

4. Clean pieces and separate for cleaning

The other option is to bleach soak your chrome parts to remove all chrome.

5. Paint using light coats.

And many of them.
I did not use a clear coat because I didn't want to possibly lose the matte colour.

LET DRY OVER NIGHT

6. Take funny picture of car without lights


7. Saran Wrap Light holes if you are going to be leaving it out over night.


8. Next morning!

Assemble carefully so as to not damage or chip your paint.

9. Reseal using stock black sealant, or you can buy some and scoop the old stuff out. Not necessary really.

I also used clear drying caulking that you can't see once dry.

Leave lights in the sun. I also put mine in my house right beside the dehumidifier over night, and that seemed to do a good job of removing all condensation.

10. Install the Exact Opposite way you put them in.


11. Testing Low beams


12. Testing High Beams

Light output: 10/10

Finished product.

Nice write up Hyperion love how they turned out on yours. It really looks great with your matching paint.
I'd love to attempt this someday but I don't know if I could trust myself without screwing something up prying the lights and putting them back together.....

I don't know why I missed this, but this is one of the nicest looking sedans I have seen.

I am in love with those side skirts, I def need to get some soon for my car. Are those fully OEM or is there a addition to them on the bottom?
