nick's mazda 3

what's up guys,

I have a 2010 Mazda 3. I got this car back in December, after the transmission blew in my Camry for the second time. while I try to find another manual for it, I'm doing little bits and pieces to the Mazda. my parents bought the car back in January of 2015. it's the 2.0 manual, and it was meant to be a starter car for my sister. she ended up not wanting to learn to drive a manual, so my mom drove it until I needed a new car, and so I spent my money buying her a Subaru wrx and I took over the Mazda. first thing I did was swap my wheels from my Camry to the Mazda.



that was the next weekend after having the car. I was getting tired of how high the car sat, so I went the budget route and bought a set of raceland ultimos. definitely not as good as the coilovers I have on my Camry, but they get the job done and it's not a terrible ride. I believe the car is 24.5 inches from the bottom of the wheel to the highest part of the fender. not low enough, but good enough until I roll my fenders.





next up I bought some window visors off of eBay, and they're definitely more useful than most other things I've bought for this car.



then I bought a new shift knob



that picture was before I got it all the way on, I just wanted to show it off to my girlfriend. then, I decided to start buying stickers and make my life harder by not being able to see anymore with a windshield banner lol



then a couple of weekends ago I ran somethings big over on the highway and it messed up my bumper.




still more to come, but not until after the bumper is replaced. I did buy some tail light tint from bluebat and I have to say so far his customer service is perfect

thanks for looking!!

Welcome to the forum Nick. Thanks for the photos. Like your mods, great looking ride. Bummer on the bumper but it happens when you lower the car. They look great lowered but are susceptible to more damage.
