Just bought a base 2005 Mazda 3i 2.0

Hey guys, my name is Kevin

I had a 2006 Mazda 6s 3.0L before, loved putting in footwell lights, new head unit (pain in the ass on the 6), amp, subs, exhaust, CAI and all that fun stuff.

Ended up losing control during an Arizona flood on the freeway.

Just bought a black 2005 Mazda 3 2.0L with 118k miles. It's base in every way so I don't want to put any modifications into it for performance. The driver side window gets stuck about half way when trying to roll up or down and needs assistance to get it all the way up or down, I'm assuming the motor gear lost some teeth?

There's also a small dent in the passenger front fender where it meets the passenger door.

Anyway, here's some miscellaneous stuff I did to the 6s

Injen CAI

Pioneer head unit, E-Brake bypass and Metra replacement dash kit (seriously though, that was douchy of mazda to not separate the head unit and the HVAC)

blue footwell lights that turned on when the doors opened, then dimmed and eventually turned off when the doors closed

Where I installed my amp and how I did the wiring for the power, RCA and radio cables through the door paneling.

I'll be lurking the site a lot to try to get a switchblade key fob on my 3 like I had on my 6
I also think the previous owner only changed the oil.. I think the spark plugs and struts etc is all stock so I'll need to update though
Just stopping in to say hi and I'll probably be around asking questions if I can't find the answers from using the search function
