Sooooooo.....will the Speed 3 glovebox fit the 3 ? I hear it closes quicker and is good for 3-5 mpg ??

Glove box won't fit...the center console flares out more in the Speed3...also the latching mechanism for the regular 3 is meant for a 2lb. glove box and the Speed glove box weighs 2.75lbs. ;)
LOL:clap:

We need a couple of adventurous owners who live close together and can do a test swap, lol. The MS3 owner's car would be out of commission, of course. I'm looking forward to CS's black, front-mount intercooler. Maybe we'll start seeing some MS3 hoods on the market from people who want a stealth look :)
FMIC is usually NOT a stealthy look =o) at least for people who know turbo cars. I had a 95 eagle Talon TSi AWD with a FMIC and I had soo many more people not want to race me then when i had the stock side mount intercooler. But I do agree... something about the hood scoop gets me going... but why bother making your car look turbo when its not. There is a reason that I didn't buy the MS3... why would I pretend to have something i dont. Not that I'm not jealous of the 100+ more hp and more aggressive looks, but still... :clap:

putting a MS3 hood on a MZ3 is about the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. If you wanted the Speed3 you should have bought it. Besides, the speed3 hood is hit, the only reason it is overlooked is because it is actually functional.

speeed 3 hood on NA?

Does the speed3 hood fit the NA cars? ( hatch NA's )

like a 10-12 hood on a 10-12 na car?


I have heard That the cars have different overall dimensions

wondering about the hood, thinking about picking up a CF speed 3 hood for my hatch

It does fit but the very front doesn't match up with the MZ3 bumper
