My "new" 3.

Well I'm back in the Mazda scene, figured I would make a thread for my car. Picked up a barely used 3 hatch. Haven't done much to it as of yet. Plans are pretty much the standard intake, exhaust, tune, tint, lighting etc.... probably some new wheels and rubber at some point too.

I'm getting my windows done tomorrow and am getting ready to clay, polish and wax it today.

Really nice care to start from. Looking forward to seeing your car's progress on your thread! Personally, I like your wheels and if mine would just get them powder coated "Ultra Black Chrome" --which is what I am going to do to my OEM's @ $350/set.

Looking forward to your wheel choice. Bet it will be way different than mine LOL.

Jan. 25th ordered Mazda 3 GT hatch; Feb. 3rd allocation awarded; Feb. 8th official options/color confirmed; Feb. 27th assembly completed; April 1st scheduled for boarding onto transporter Ro-Ro; April 15th ETA at Port of Tacoma; 1st week of May ETA for dealership arrival.

Below picture thanks and credit to Skagerstrom, for that is his beauty below, the inspiration for what our car will look like.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Took me about 14 hours to clay, polish and wax the car. Previous owner definitely didn't know how to take care of paint. It looks great now. Got the windows done and everything looks so much better now. Waiting on my Corksport SRI to get here and I'm trying to decide what mud flaps I'm going to get.

I got the RallySport ones for my Speed and am impressed with the coverage and look good too.
