    Great Colour choice. And another Queeslander as well. There's quite a few who've lowered the GenII, but yours do look seriously dropped. Makes the wheels look huge. 19's or 20's? Springs/shocks/coilovers?

    The driving shot does look very good.

    I went with the 19s as the profile on 20s is too low, traction is already an issue... I just used superlow kings springs which have been great

    Welcome Nick, wheels look nice but a lot of work to clean ,there is one fix for brake dust change brake pads and that will reduce brake dust, the originals are shocking on any new cars...

    Welcome aboard Nick.

    I have 19's as well, but not lowered, as it would be suicide out here for my poor little bumper.

    I have your car and mpssylo's as my desktop, from the nose to nose shot you guys took, so that should tell you how hot I think both of your cars are lol.

    If you guys ever put together another photoshoot, you should invite a few members along. I'd be very keen to have my VR done sometime.

    Welcome person with excellent colour taste!

    Certainly bold choice with the alloys, I think it works

    If you're into tarting up the exterior a little (which clearly you are), also check out Lakin Custom Plates (Custom number plate brackets for 2009 Mazda 3 MPS)

    A couple of us here on the forums have replaced our front and rear license plate brackets with these. The front in particular make a huge difference...... gets rid of the crappy factory bracket that sticks out a mile

    Here are some pics of mine with the new brackets installed: http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/membe...tml#post132359
