Talking New Mazda 3 - Intro Post

Hey, I'm new to the forums here. I owned a Mazda Protege 5 previously, but it had run it's course as of last Friday.

I picked up a 2006 Mazda 3 hatchback, standard transmission, about 94 thousand kms on it. Pretty stoked to be driving it for awhile !

I got some pictures when I went to sign for it, I'll get some more when it's in my driveway with a Thule on it and all

Congrats on the upgrade. Any additional plans for mods?

Yeah, I'm always open for ideas, but so far I'm thinking:

1) upgrading the fog lights (thinking around 3000K range)

2) changing the speakers similar to this : http://www.crutchfield.ca/Pioneer_TS...130tsa6874.htm

3) changing the interior lights to LEDs, either white or to match the dash lights

4) adding LEDs in the footwells, colour to match the dash light colour (orange/red)

5) painting the emblems

6) later on...switching the exhaust

Welcome to the forum. Jealous that you have the factory LED taillights.

Nice list. Seems very doable. I'm sure you'll end up doing much more haha
