What do you all think.. is this too "rice?" :sneaky2 1: (It looked good on my Miata B's, but those were roadsters.)
Yeah, I was sort of surprised at the negative response, but maybe it's because there hasn't been one available on the 3 before. We were introduced to this particular design on the earlier Miatas by the factory, so it was more acceptable; anything new by an unknown tends to get negative reactions at first, unless it is just solving a problem, like the front plate re-locator, etc.Not for nothing but there is obviously a market for it. A handful of forumites does not a quorum make. Fuel doors just like that have been available for all the earlier generations, in chrome, brushed, painted, carbon fiber, etc, what makes this one any different?:dunno:
There is a genuine Mazda part for Gen 1 Mazda 3s available, its a bit over $100-Yeah, I was sort of surprised at the negative response, but maybe it's because there hasn't been one available on the 3 before......
I'm guessing a metal one would sell for about $100, not unreasonable. It could be in a brushed finish to not be so shinny, or maybe a primed version... donno.
Interesting... a chrome door like this was available OEM on the earlier version Mazda Speed 3 and was popular.
