    So, my beloved Mazda 3 was in its first ever fender bender, Sunday. Well, my first ever and first ticket as well.

  6. JBR Crash bar w/ TR8L Intercooler

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Alright peeps, got me a JBR crash bar and a Treadstone TR8L intercooler. I opted for the "L" version cuz I have the cobb pipping already and the "L" is the same length as the cobb intercooler.

  16. Amatuer Body Work, "narrow body kit"

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Had some body-work done on my sweet ride. Hired an amateur to do it--without even knowing it. Kind of wish they washed the car before they crafted this masterpiece. Entire door needs to be replaced, window regulator, motor, speaker, repainted to match...Body shop quoted me just under $2000.
