New Mazda3 owner

Just picked up an 05 Mazda3 hatch with 83k on the clock. Bought it to drive daily to work rather than my 1996 BMW M3 which is more of a track car.

No real plans for modifications, just take care of some stock issues like motor mounts and call it a day. Might upgrade the audio as Ill be spending about 2hrs a day in the car for my commute.

Yea, it has H&R springs and Bilstein sport shocks, a Dinan intake and tune and a Corsa exhaust. I am getting ready to overhaul all of the suspension bushings with new polyurethane stuff.

It's tolerable. I dont sit in any extreme traffic, all highway miles. So I just set the cruise and roll on.
