NEW PICS ON PAGE 2





Well, after many threads with terrible camera phone shots, I decided that it was time to borrow a better camera and take some good pics...my photo skills are definitely not that great, but I did as good as I could...Mod list is at the bottom, and drop is on the way...Thanks for looking and please comment...I have put a lot of work into this car so far...unfortunately I forgot to take pics of the blackout interior that I finished last week along with the audio equipment...

Thanks man...believe it or not, those are new rims...they are actually Mazda3 rims as opposed to the Stock P5 ones...they are 17's instead of 16's and let me run a much wider tire...

I'm not a fan everything blacked out with that spray paint look, I like the smoked where it still has a gloss look to it..but otherwise not too shabby. I like the rims and a drop would set it off :thumbup:

Thanks...I actually have the black pieces done in flat black and that is the reason for the tails not being gloss...and the drop is coming...I have a set of MSP springs on the way that will drop it about an inch, but look real good with the rims...

not too shabby man....!!

Thanks for the comment...

Looks over performance is a must with this car...it is terrible slow, and yes...the old wheels are in the sig, thanks...I must say, it is good knowing it will still be in the driveway when I go out in the morning...not to mention, a blacked-out yellow station wagon would be pretty hard to be un-noticed with...:lol:

Drop is sitting in the room right next to me...is scheduled to go on next Wednesday/Thursday...ended up just going with the Mazdaspeed springs (1in drop)...I drive 95% city driving usually 600-700 miles a week, and a big drop was out of the question, but with the 17's I think it will look great...also have the Mazdaspeed front/rear swaybars, DG Carbon Fiber Full Interior kit going in the mail monday, Momo CF E-Brake handle/boot, Mazdaspeed Pedals, Steering Column Gauge pod, and Mazdaspeed shoulder straps on the way...

definitely needs to go lower

Will be hopefully within a week as long as nothing comes up next wed/thur...

I hate driving behind people like you. Tailights are so dark, you cant see them light up during the daytime. Other than that, its nice.

Thanks man...and yes the tailights are dark, but they are not pitch black like most people usually do...I actually did them just enough to where they were blacked out, but you could still see through them perfectly...

UPDATES: Tooks some pics today of the recent additions to the car which include the DG CF pieces (still waiting on Driver A-Pillar/Guage surround), Engine Cover, and my system (just because I don't think I have ever put up pics of it...)

I'm personally not a fan of these cars but they're not all that bad. The only Mazda's I like are the FD RX-7, RX-8, and Mazda6.

Great gas mileage, huge aftermarket support, very reliable model, right price is what made me a fan...plus I was looking for a hatch...must say though, I never thought that at 19 I would be driving a modded station wagon...lol...

I think it would be much cleaner with less blacked out stuff, no decals and no carbon fiber trim kit.

Thanks for the comments...the CF addiction has gotten me...lol...and the only decals I have are for the carclub that I am in...nothing too over the top...I just really like the yellow on black...maybe too much...:lol:...
