This is my 2011 Mazdaspeed 3, bought her brand new about 2 months ago after trading in my 2007 black mica speed 3. Im going to periodically post photos and eventual use this thread as my build thread when i have the money. My twin brother is responsible for these pics. He is trying to start a little photography business so all comments and feedback on his pictures are welcome. I am not in the least bit picture savy, but i think these pics are pretty good. Enjoy!

Havent had time to update this thread... so far i have installed the CBE. It sounds awesome! I just ordered BC coilovers tonight. I loved them on my last gen 1 speed 3. Im looking for a 1.5" to a 1.75" inch drop. Due to lack of funds i will be rolling the stock wheels for alittle while. I have a hook up that can supply me with wheels from japan at a fraction of the cost (im talking about volk wheel sets for $600 brand new and other high end wheel brands) so we will see what happens. Im excited to get this build started. Unfortunately no engine mods for me. ill stick with the CBE. I will post pictures as soon as i can.

Thank you sir! Everyone keeps telling me to go lower and the peer pressure is kicking in a little. I might go another 1/4 inch. I live in the city so going any lower would be an awful idea.

I wish i knew how to attach the images at thumbnails. I cant remember how i did it before. Waiting for attachments to load is a buzzkill! :argh 1:

I think it would look cool if you had a decal or something on one of your windows that matched the rim color to tie it all in. I like your car and really like the area you live in (really green in the background of your pics!).

I like the wheels so much I wanna know their specs so I can buy them and copy yooouu! Jk. But for real wheel and tire specs? Looks like you got the setup just right(drop, wheel/ tire ratio). I'm debating 17s vs 18s right now to run a 225 tire but I kinda like some tire you know what I mean? Don't want 18s w/ rubber bands. And as far as the color I'd rather be out there than boring. 2 thumbs up.

No Monster sticker to go with them?

Just playin, really. They're pretty sweet looking to be honest. All track-lookin'. I personally wouldn't colorize, but I've seen some done right, like yours, and they're always a treat to see.
