Thread: New owner - Mazda 3 MPS

  1. Default New owner - Mazda 3 MPS

    Hi all, just purchased a stock 2007 Mazda 3 MPS (aurora blue)... Absolutely loving it so far!

    I'm not going to too crazy on the mods... Ordered myself a d5151 stereo, might look at some suspension, new intake and a re-flash. The more I read though, the more ideas I get...


    It's due for its 60k service shortly so if anyone can recommend somewhere good in Canberra that would be great.

    Cheers!

    Welcome! Congrats on the purchase.
    I'm sure old mate @chef will recommend ultimate tunes in Canberra but he can fill you in on that side of things. Others may have other suggestions as well though.

    ^^ This kinda makes me think it's too hard to stop the mod process already...
    Once started you won't go back!

    I'll 2nd what @chef said...got my 50,000km service done yesterday at Ultimate Tunes with no complaints.

    Have used Dynotune before aswell (mainly with my mum and brothers cars) but service and workmanship is top notch there too.

    May as well chime in here, the Lads @ Ulitmate are very objective & will not push you into purchasing any particular product. They'll give you the pros n cons and then you are able to makeyour own decision.

    I'm having my motor rebuilt by these guys, aside from other bits n pieces. I spoke with Christian yesterday n said he was trying to get time to jump on the forum more often. Quite busy @ present.........

    Welcome @diggidydogg

    I agree with @SarcasticOne another Canberra meet soon will be good. As far as getting your mods and servicing goes I would also recommend DynoTune Belco, they are putting in some gauges that I bought at the moment and so far so good from what I've heard. also my cousin. Haven't heard much personally about Ultimate but from what the dudes have said on the site they sound good.

    hi and welcome

    Hi!

    Just curious, did you buy your MPS from NSW?

    I think I saw that one on carsales haha.

    Either way good colour choice! Is there any major work scheduled for the 60k?

    Cheers

    Thanks for the welcome and advice! I might hitup Ultimate tunes in Phillip seeing as I'm close by.
    Is the 60k service a big one?

    Jay - I did get the car from NSW. I was looking for a stocky with low K's and this one fit the bill. Was actually looking for a red 2008 model but there wasn't much around unless I went all the way to Melbs...

    Hahaha! I just bought the red one! It was in really good condition so I couldn't pass it up. I think we got the best 2 on offer!


    Congrats again! I'll post some pictures when I pick it up on Tuesday.
