Thread: New Sydney MPS 3 member

    Default New Sydney MPS 3 member

    Hi everyone.
    So today I picked up a 2011 white Mazda 3 MPS Second series. I upgraded from a Toyota Corolla Sportivo 05 which I'm still trying to sell off. As much as I loved Lift, I've never experienced anything like the MPS.

    The car came with the following mods:
    Cobb SRI
    Hypertech max energy sport
    A couple of LEDs upgraded
    Short Shifter
    Some form of springs that I forgot the name of. It lowered the car a bit but I do have the stock springs that I may put back in

    Car has a couple of creaks from the exhaust. Planning on getting the car looked at top to bottom at a mechanic. It has done mostly 50k highway kms

    I'm located in the Parramatta area and can't wait to meet some of you guys at meets.

    Looking forward to learn a lot here and be a part of the community

    First shot of the new car


    Next to my mates Evo 8

    Hi and welcome , I also had a 05 sportivo , it was a great car , I had all the CES gear on mine but got smashed from behind and written off, MPS is a good upgrade to the sportivo.

    I was under the same username on TOCAU. If you look at the buy/sell forum and then cars for sale its at the top-ish. I love the Sportivo to bits but it was time to upgrade to something better =D

    I have no idea. The seller said short shifter and I had driven a couple MPS's beforehand whilst looking to buy one and I can definitely feel the difference. Any particular way to tell which it is?

    Does the shifter seem low compared to stock? if that's the case it's prob a short shifter. If not, prob a short shift plate.
    The plate is in the engine bay under the intake i circled it in red.

    So I'm assuming its a short shift plate based on this image that I just took

    Yeah for sure. I'd love to see some of the MPS's out there. Get some inspiration on what I can do with my car.

    So onto a quick question.
    So I currently have the Cobb SF SRI in the car and I want to get a cold/air box. What are my options besides getting the Cobb one which costs more then the SRI itself?
    I did find the Corksport one: CORKSPORT 'Power Series' Cold Air Box For The COBB SF System
    But its only for series 1 MPS3. I don't suppose it will fit the series 2 MPS3
