Hi guys, I am just writing to let the community know that I am planning on swapping the mazdaspeed 3 hood and put it on my 4 door. I know I have to order the fenders and the bumper also but I am ok with that. I kind of like the way the MS 3 Fenders look. Hopefully, I should have this by fall since I need to work a little for it lol. I will provide some really needed pictures about this mod so people can finally see how it looks.

So expect me to have it done by around august-September. I hope this will be really helpful for the Mazda 3 community :)

I am lost as to why no aftermarket fiberglass or carbon hoods are available for the 3 that have a nonfunctional Speed style scoop.

I know CorkSport conducted a poll on this site to see what style(s) of aftermarket hoods the community would be interested in, but I haven't heard anything about whether they plan to follow through on producing anything.

you might be better off looking in a junk yard. you can ind the speed 3 front bumper on ebay, but havnt found the hood or fenders. as far as the hood goes your better off getting a carbon fiber one. it would be cheaper

I wish they would make a NACA duct for the hood. I might end up doing a custom job in the future for one paired with an airbox for the Simota. Way down the road though

Wow, I'm an idiot. My apologies to Alejo. I saw another thread about a speed3 hood and saw a few key words in the OP and thought it was another "does the speed3 hood fit the mz3??" thread. Just re-opened the thread.

Again, sorry about that Alejo - I'll read the ENTIRE first post from now on :)

Sounds like an expensive project. No offense, but the end result would be more drag on a 2.0 (assuming you have a 2.0)
It's going to be around $764 for the price of all the parts. And I am just going to round up installation and other unexpected costs and bring the whole mod to around 1000 dollars. Yeah, I understand what might happen, but I might also end up getting an intake after the hood has been installed.

Gotta agree with Oliver on this one. Every time I look at the picture, knowing that is a non speed I immediately think rice.
Not to mention that black on the silver car just looks like a fail, IMO.
CF or color matched would of looked a little better I suppose
