    Default New guy with MPS 3

    Hey, names Nick, had a Mazda SP23, owned for almost 2 years and always liked the car but it was just missing something. So i decided on the MPS 3

    Its a 2008 Black Mica MPS sports pack with 32000kms on the clock, full service history and totally immaculate!!! drives very well, interior is spotless and the exterior is A1.
    I pick it up on Tuesday and cant wait to get it home. I'll put up some better pics after a wash and it comes to its new home.

    The mod list is growing and a list has come together. My old wheels will be going back on to see how they are after some guard rolling is done, BC BR coilovers are going back in and i've had some adjustable rear arms sitting in my garage for a while that can finally go in

    On the list of parts are;
    FMIC
    Intake
    a number of carbon parts
    front lip
    full exhaust
    engine damper
    solid rear engine mount
    some body bracing (if needed for driving i do)
    putting my old system back in

    Thats it off the top of my head, im sure theres more but that'll do for now

    Welcome Nick! Sounds like some nice mods you have planned.

    ----

    Edit...slight fail, I know this guy!! Welcome to the forum Nick and glad to have you here mate. I'm sure some of the friendly folks would be interested to see some pics of your MPS3 (naturally) but also you SP23. I know you done work on the SP23 and it looked pretty good, so chuck up some pics sometime. As mentioned elsewhere, there's plenty of info and advice on here and I know you're into mods so enjoy the forums and get out on some cruises and meet some folks.

    ...And how did I know you would add carbon parts!! I have Carbon Mirrors if you're interested to get the same, lemme know and I'll link you

    The mirrors I have say for Mazda 6 but I'm pretty confident the 3 and 6 have the same mirrors so they should fit
