Thought I start my build since I've started modding my car more. Bought the car a few months ago, it is a 2011 Mazda 3 S, Pearl White. Yes, there are a lot of pictures haha.

This is how she looks when I first got her.

Started with DDM 6000k HID's for headlights, swapped out all the stock bulbs inside the car for White LED's. Got some window visors. (Don't have pictures) Jumped on an OBX catback exhaust. Added the MZ style front lip and changed out the stock horn for hella horns

Next I Installed side skirt extensions and dropped the car on BC coilovers. How she sits now, almost a 1.5 inch drop front and back I think. Installed them straight out of the box and didn't adjust ride height.

It's raining and im driving home from work, out of no where I drive through a huge puddle and it knocked off my front lip. But luckily it was still hanging on with 2 screws haha. Now time to stick it back on tomorrow, if the weather permits. :surprise:

Wanted to add a little more sound from the car so I removed the resonator and man that thing is huge. Car makes a louder rumble and sounds much better. Also hit a milestone today, 50,000 miles.

I went ahead and picked up some genpu wheels for $300. The previous owner plasti dipped them black and its already started to chip off, so I'm gonna find a day to remove all the plasti dip, give them a good clean and throw them onto my car. Also plan on painting my taillights red with vht and clear coat.

It's been awhile, but haven't done too much mods as of late. Changed out my OBX exhaust for a Corksport. The dude selling it sold it for a great price, I couldn't say no to it.

just an update, haven't really done much to the car as of late. But decided to paint the tailights with vht nightshade. Hardest part was masking off the center of the taillights and overall it wasn't the perfect job but it will do for now. Pretty easy for the most part unless you really want it to be detailed perfectly.

Got in a good cleaning, thinking about getting either the MS style rear lip or a custom diffuser.

Just purchased rally armor mud guards and the MS style rear lip hopeful to get them installed when they both get here so I can install them both in one go. But for now here she is.

Installed the corksport RSB on the car. Install itself wasn't too hard, the longest part was get the endlinks out. It is beefier then the stock and so far haven't really driven to hard with them installed so will have to wait and see.
