i will be getting my mazda3 black mica in 2 weeks.

i was wondering if the front mazda badge is easy to remove? because i would like to paint it black.// or would i have to remove the entire grill

thanks

i like the one on the Kenstyle better .. the autoexe looks very much like the original grille without the badge.. not worth so much money.

the mesh grille will be popular coz it's practically on every P5 out there.

I'm thinking of debadging the rear.. that huge mazda thing is bothering me.. it's just too big.. probably the biggest badge i've ever seen on a car. Wonder if there will be holes behind it?

Yep. There is 2 holes behind the rear emblem, and 2 holes behind the Mazda emblem. Only one that doesnt look like it has holes is the 3 itself.

Just wonder where they will leave a hole for the hood latch? it sits roughly below the Mazdaspeed badge. I suppose this grille has a mesh net and not a big opening.

I wish one could simply get the non-US Grill like the one below and just pop out the old one and pop it in it's place. the "sport" grill is just a little over the top for my tastes. The non-US one just looks better... All the cool photos I've seen are ones with the mesh grill. Also, the mesh seems "sportier" than the sport grill, which is supported by the fact that the mazdaspeed version will have a mesh grill.



Anyone inquired with dealer about doing this?
