    Default Hills District Newbie!

    Hey Guys,
    New guy from the Hills District in Sydney checking in!
    New to MPS but not new to Mazda.
    Previously owned a 2 (briefly - don't judge me it was awesome ) and a Carbon Grey SP23 Sedan:



    From there i moved onto a Nissan Silvia S15 with some work done to it:



    I loved that car, it looked cool, went fast, handled well, and sounded awesome BUT i couldn't fit snowboards/mountain bikes in it, couldn't carry too many people, and the time came to move on to something else.
    I wanted something that was practical, could handle MTB/BMX/Snowboards, handled and braked well, had decent power AND was a little stealthy...
    I looked at WRX wagons, Libertys etc and was pretty set on an 06 WRX Wagon until i had a last minute change of heart and ended up with this:

    Super Clean, 100% Stock, and Stealthy Mazda 3 MPS Sports Pack.
    Plenty of space for bikes/boards/friends, awesome stereo, handles well, brakes well and it goes pretty well too.
    There are already a few parts ordered and a bit of a plan forming in my head as to what i want to do - but i still have heaps to learn about them so i'll be on here asking silly questions alot

    If you see me around say hi! (Stand by for new plates...)

    ^^^ Correct

    First legit mods started today:

    Now sitting about an inch lower (Springs only - Will probably go coil overs in the near future) and running a Whiteline Rear Sway.
    Car rides much nicer now, sits very flat through corners and the understeer tendency is a thing of the past.
    Will need to look into Adjustable Camber arms in the back soon, running just over 2degrees negative in the rear at the moment.


    Definitely not me in the photo - HopkoPhotography Photoshoot - S15 feat Mz. Danie - YouTube - heres a video of the shoot though for those interested...

    Definitely keen to head to some NSW meets and let the bad influence to mod the car begin.

    In other news a few new mods arrived today, they will get fitted after next Friday - when i'm heading to Marulan for the day

    Minor Update:
    Paid a visit to the awesome boys at GFB (GFB Performance turbo tuning products | BOV | blow-off valve | wastegate | boost controller | short shifters | pulley kits) to grab a Respons BOV to replace the crummy stock plastic BOV in the MPS. Adjustable from full atmo (obviously a no-no for MPS) to full recirc it's exactly what i want.
    Install was super simple (GFB Respons Blow Off Valve Install and Sound (MY09 Subaru Forester) - YouTube) and sounds great and looks pretty stock -> perfect mod!

    Hey All! Haven't been on here for ages, but it was an eventful year. Had the car stolen and returned, repaired and returned and finally good to go! (Will add more detail later on updates. For some reason it's not letting me use enter to make new lines!)

    How did they steal it, as in did they break into your house and get the keys?
