Hey guys I am currently talking to one of the many mazda specialty shops in Thailand (Mz Store) in the works of getting their body kits sent over to the U.S. I just wanted to start a thread to show my progress. I am Thai and my uncle will be in Thailand in June. He will be handling my shipping from Thailand to the U.S. for me. Im pretty excited and I haven't seen many 3s with thai bodykits over here so hopefully I can keep y'all posted with updates. The parts i'm getting are attached. That's their front bumper, their carbon fiber hood, cf wing, cf engine cover, cf interior trim pieces, cf remote cover, cf mirror covers and cf pillars. I was literally about to order bilstein B14 coilovers and a tanabe stb when the shop responded to my inquiry and gave me a quote.

Update: I ordered the parts and they are in the process of making everything. Unfortunately they don't have the blueprints for manual mazda3s and they don't have LHD blueprints so I was unable to get the carbon fiber interior pieces. I did order the hood, wing, front bumper, and engine bay cover however.

So the prices were front bumper 14900 THB, Carbon fiber 5 door wing 16900 THB, Carbon fiber engine cover 5700 THB, Carbon fiber key cover 1550 THB, and Carbon fiber hood 21000 THB, which totaled to 60,050 THB. There is also a 4.5% fee for using paypal (the alternative is a direct bank transfer with no fees, but you need a Bangkok bank account) and if you ship the items to anywhere in Bangkok its 1900 THB. Paypals conversion rate is 32.8755 which is lower than I thought it would be (google says 34) so my total in USD was 1966.58$ (I was expecting it to be 1901.54$). It'll take about 10 days for everything to be made and after that my uncle in Thailand will be shipping the parts by sea to me. Also all communication was done through facebook messanger in English if anyone was wondering. I will post more as I get closer to everything finishing up and let you know how shipping goes.

What year is your car? I'm asking because not all 14-16 will fit a 17.

I see you live in Atlanta but is that a Thai red plate on your car?
Yes it is! recently someone hit my car and ripped off the plate though. I'm trying to see if any of my family can find me a good replacement.

Parts were all finished yesterday, my uncle went and picked them up and is making a crate to ship them. He is shipping it in a freight with another persons order to Chicago in order to avoid paying taxes and customs fees.

@Neezy, Everything looks great! Keep us posted! Definitely interested on seeing the Carbon Fiber Hood install!

By the way, what's the weight of the OEM hood compared to the Carbon Fiber Hood?

I was also speaking with these guys and was very interested in this body kit. I was not traveling to Thailand and the shipping part confused me so I Kind of broke it off. But definitely keep us updated because I was really liking the look of the stuff

I'm waiting for some real pictures of their vented fender to see how much clearance you get + what the lip extension looks like since they're won't be any rolling on it afterwards.

I'd like to see some more pictures of the hood and the wing when you get them, they look great!
I'll definitely take good pictures when they arrive!

I'm not sure on the exact weight but I'll ask them and find out.
Don't mean to thread jack.. but I got that (similar?) spoiler.


Wow that looks great. It looks like the exact one, I think I've seen a couple of people with it on the forum. Where did you get yours?

I happened to get lucky because my uncle just happens to work with Thailand to US shipping and he happened to be going there for a customers order at the same time.

I was actually about to buy the fenders as well but I wanted to get the larger parts out of the way because of my situation with the crate shipping. If I added anymore items they wouldn't have finished on time for my uncle to ship it.
