SP2.3L Badges

I always find it amusing when I see people's Mazda3's with the SP2.3L badge on the doors, even though their '3 isn't a SP. I know the SP badges look cool, but I think your car and the driver within look dumb when faking what they're really driving. Are the 'normal' 2.3 badges just that terrible to bear? Just a thought.

Yes they are. That's why I took them off.

Yeah, it seems like it was cool for people to SP their car before the SP was actually released in the US. Now it's just lame and full of uncle Ben's

Axela = Mazda 3. It's the same thing, different name.

However, you can't say the GT in Canada and SP23 are the same thing, because it's a different model range.

Re: SP2.3L Badges

Well I just solve the problem of not having any badges. I took off the "3" and I'm now thinking of taking off the Mazda badge and Mazda symbol....as well as modifying the grille in the front to remove the Mazda symbol there too.

Re: SP2.3L Badges

I'd love to totally de-badge the car but I can't hack the bodywork required on the back due to the placement holes and I took care of the front with the nabobery grille. THANKS MAZDA
