  1. Default New owner of mazda 3 mps 2009 Luxury

    Hi all
    Recently bought a mps just looking for ideas not looking to do major mods just small stuff. Would like to see what others are doing.
    Car has only done 66k. In great conditionion couple of scrapes on the bumper.

    Welcome mate, nice colour combo. Please do some reading and have a look through some build threads etc to get answers and ideas before asking. A lot of spoon feeding to other newbies lately, I'm sure your to old for that lol

    Welcome mate.

    So aesthetics? Mild performance boost? Handling? What's your poison?

    Try these shops... http://www.edgeautosport.com and www.corksport.com both are forum sponsors.

    Best bang for buck performance upgrade is a COBB Access Port. For about $700 it will give you some extra zoom zoom, they're made for stock or modified cars.

    After some extra sound, do a cat back exhaust upgrade. Wont do anything for power, but you will love the sound. Look for Corksport, Cobb, UR or speak to @2XS, our local fabricator in Brisbane, does some very nice stuff like intakes, suspension, exhaust..

    If you you want to lower it a little, bilstien B8 and King Springs are a good combo. Or Look for Koni FSD for a more compliant and sportier ride on stock height. Very popular change.

    Did I mention intakes? look for SRI, again made by Corksport, Cobb, again @2XS

    Rear Sway Bar and Rear Engine Mount swaps are a must. Should have mentioned that first.

    Anyway, good luck.

    Long live the Redbull ... V2

    Rear sway bar, rear engine mount are "must do" IMO

    An access port goes a long way, and the hpfp upgrade helps keep your engine happy

    Else, welcome
