    If I find a style of wheel that I like, but can't get a color that I like, is it possible to have them painted/powdercoated? If so, does anyone know the kind of price range? For a good to high quality job. Eventually I'm thinking matte black body with green wheels. Thanks!

    Hi everyone, As some owners of the Mazda 3 Hatchbacks (2014-2106) may have noticed the rear unpainted black plastic on our bumpers gets scratched very easily all the time (Although the entire bumper is one plastic piece, partially painted and unpainted) Now it looks that Mazda have addressed...

    2013 Mazda3 Side Mirrors w/Turn Signals and Painted Caps Side mirrors for 2013 Mazda3 hatchback. Hey guys, so my side-mirror experimentation gone wrong is up for sale. There is nothing wrong with them, they just don’t work for what I was trying to do. I have the Blind Spot Monitoring mirrors...

    18x8. I plan on plasti-dipping them Anthracite Grey with a Gloss Coat, and wrapping in 235/40/18 or maybe 235/45/18. For now they're sitting in the boxes in my room. I applied Griot Garages One-Step Sealant and Collonite 845. Those are just a few images below. Here's a full album...

    Decided to paint the housing of my headlights. Took around 5 hours but it was 100% worth it.

    I just bought a new 14 iTouring and upon deliver was informed that the previous dealer had added painted pinstripes. I really hated this, but knew a friend who I thought could remove it easily so I purchased it anyways. It seems like most of the recommendations for removing painted pinstripes...

    Hey all, I've been wanting to paint my calipers and am trying to decide on color. Right now, I'm thinking either go black or go orange/yellow. Who here has painted calipers on a MS3? I'd love to see them so pics would be much appreciated.

    So I was going to cut the housing off and do the inside red with duplicolor metalcast. After about 5 minutes or so of cutting I said F that. I ended up just painting the outside with the transparent red metalcast instead. Came out pretty good I think. No flat spots in the paint. I really...

    easiest and less invasive way to remove it from the bumper?

    Yeah, I have the wrong generation of 3, and it's a speed in addition to that, but I'm sure some passionate owners here would like the warning anyway, since I'm here for things related to my better half's '13 skyactiv...

    One of the only things I disliked about my 2013 MZ3 was the matte black plastic bumper insert...not only the material but the color makes the mouth gape a bit too much for my taste (unless you have a black car). The other is the same black plastic they used to make the cup under the front grille...

    I've got an Aluminum metallic colored car and wondered about painting them either gold (more like brass, less yellow) or white. Until I upgrade to 17 or 18 inch rims I've been pondering on this idea but can't seem to find any online so far. It's too bad that the design looks a bit like hubcaps...

    So I got my wing, and rocker panels, painted and installed today. Everything went relatively smooth, pretty simple installation. Much happier with this, than the naked sky look. About $80 in tips, and $40 for pizza, dam good deal for paint and install to me lol. BMW color system using my CWP...

    I know this would be an overnight cosmetic success on 2nd Gen. That or painting it a dark grey unless you have a dark colored car. I'd also paint the false grill parts black since it's now plastic black which is not dark enough for me. I also thought of painting the back bumper where the...

    I know a lot of folks are nervous about opening their headlights to paint the internals. Just curious if anyone would be interested in buying a set that had already been done? I might consider doing this to my original headlights once I am satisfied there aren't any issues with the ones I...

    I have a set of rear Mazda 3 SEDAN splash guards for sale. This is an OEM part that I bought from the dealership for 80 bucks. I painted skyblue mica and had the intention of installing it on my HB after seeing some thread on the forum that it fits HBs.... well it didn't in my 2012 HB so I'm...
