It's hard to justify until you realize 3 years into owning them they will last the life of your car lol.

If you want to be cheap on them, go buy 2 plastic trash cans and cut them up and DIY it. There's a tutorial around here somewhere.
Otherwise, seriously, plastic mudflaps are just a waste of time and effort as they do begin to fail within a year. They warp probably within 3 months.

ALL this time it was the Passenger Motor Mount.....haha.....It came out in 2 pieces too!...

After installing a New Mount...Everything went silent...It was a strange experience hearing NO more noises and not having a car sound like a Diesel Engine.
Would've been a good opportunity to go with a nice AWR mount. I loved mine.

What did you torque the center bolt to? Did you use red or blue loctite?

Good Question...I aint gonna lie...I think I cross-threaded the bolt while screwing it in...it started off screwing in normal when it got half way it got really hard to tightened...So I just muscled it in till it was all the way tight...I most likely fucked it up now...

So everyone drives a Mazda 3......

Yet the ones w/ Turbo's must have a special super force that brain washes their owners to think they are at a Higher Superiority than others....

Just strange....LoL..."Thought of the Day"

Nah always realized this...I use to ignore or not read about it...

The last few days...Speed Owners have gotten on my nerve hahaha...
Especially when I posted an Engine Bay shot and never mentioned once about Power or HP's...But give it up to the Speed Owners bring it up everytime though!
