Headlights look good and so does the stance! I likes.

Funny to see your car slammed in the dirt, lol. Just seeing the desert in the pictures makes me sweat.
Thanks man! Yea it wasn't so hot today, it's starting to cool down. I think 99°F somewhere around there

So I finally got an exhaust for my 3s.
It's the Speed Daddy Mazdaspeed3 3" cutback exhaust. I used the stock catalytic converter, and hollowed it out (still got the first one coming off the manifold). Anyway here's a quick vid. Enjoy!

It's alot louder in person and still plan on getting the msds header for it..

i'll be the first to say it and "hate" but fart cannon and cutting springs?

1998 called, and wanted their high school Honda Civic mods back..


but you're finally on the right track... looking better now, although with how low it is and tucked the wheels are, it kinda looks like a minivan w/ cut springs. exhaust is raspy and kinda obnoxious.... but hey to each their own.

Haha, good one! It's a poor Mexican's mods what can I say! :p
It's not till I got this higher paying job that I started saving for real stuff. As far as exhaust goes I still plan on getting an MSDS header :D
