Hi guys, I'm new to this forum just signed up today, but it seems like a great community.

I'm thinking about getting the 2012 Mazda 3 iTouring w/ Skyactiv and moonroof/bose sedan.

I wanted to know, what would color would you choose the Black Mica or the Graphite? I really love both colors but I can't seem to choose, and I haven't been able to find many pictures on both colors so I can't really compare.

I personally really like the graphite because if your into painting/vinyl it's a neutral color that you can do alot with. I personally have painted all the trim pieces and headlight housings blue on my graphite. And I love the way it looks. If you'd like I can link to my pics to show you. The black mica is a very sharp looking paint as well so it all comes down to personal taste and what kind of look your going for. Hope this helps a bit :) and good luck on the purchase and welcome to the community!

Oooh nice, they look pretty sick, I've been looking at the threads of people showing their cars, and I think I'm getting sold to the black. Although I think I will have to clean the car more often =D. Black with tints and led interior kit, man sounds amazing already. Thank you anyways for your help! This forum is great.

I think the black looks good. I'm biased though mines red and black. Havoc say he's glad to help. We're painting mirror caps currently.
Any plans for paint themes yet?

I've got a black one. I wanted it for its low-vis status, but I honestly think they look better in the gray. It shows off the curves better.

Hey guys, sorry it took so long to put up pictures, but this is what I have so far, I'm no photographer, I just used a simple point and shoot so don't judge my crappy camera work ><!!

I threw some tints all around, added interior light kit, HID 5000s.

Tell me what you guys think please :)
