I bought a white 2005 5-speed Mazda3 Hatchback 3 weeks ago. i want to add some stuff to it, both cosmetic and performance. i live in rural New Hampshire so a body kit with 2 inches of ground clearance would probably not be the right choice if you get what i mean. please post your ideas, suggestions etc. also if you have pictures of the parts that would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ben

HID kits are popular with that model, I also like the idea of LED tail lights from the top model.

You might get some ideas from the 3s on this site:

White rims will look good, tough to keep clean looking though, black bezel especially with tinted windows. Just make sure you don't go too low, 1.4" should be OK... if a speed bump looks to high then avoid it. I think Tein makes a nice set of coil-overs for your car.

BHR has not learned that driving a milly can also be fun........he still thinks it can't tow, remember?


Tow? He thinks it is made of sugar and melts in the rain :)

CAI = Cold air intake, for the mazda3 there pretty easy to find, ebay is great

hid, I think you havea 9006 bulb, but check on that

what you want is a color temp of 4300k, in whatever your bulb size is. So if you have a 9006 low beam stock just search for 4300k 9006. A complete kit will include 2 bulbs, 2 ballasts, and plug and play wiring, very easy to install.

eh, local auto parts parts really aren;t that great unless you have an american car, or want to be a ricer.

go with online, especially ebay for things like the intake and hid's
