Well, while waiting for a complete cat-back, I thought I would install a high performance universal muffler. Came back from the tuning shop...no go. There's no place to fit any model unless you start butchering the muffler by cutting the tip of it and all that....not a clean job and not what I wanted. So I guess I'll have to wait.

I for one am glad that the Mazda3 has a unique muffler design. That way you can't put a tasteless universal muffler on it that doesn't quite fit right and look like you are in line for an APC sticker.

If you want to replace the stock exhaust, wait for a vehicle-specific one to come out from a reputable tuning shop.

Not at all.

An HKS universal muffler is far from tasteless so you don't have to generalize. L-Sport is a reputable shop here. They build custom stuff are excellent. They are not big but that doesn't mean they're not good. If they make a line for the 3 it will fit perfectly. Of course if they quote me a ridiculous price I'll have no choice to wait.

HKS and Greddy are at work designing an exhaust now. I briefly talked to a distributor of both and they have received many calls about exhaust systems for the 3.

My friends' speed shop got a few dozen calls for exhausts, intakes, and suspension upgrades. Funny, cuz I havent seen one damn 3 on the road but mine.

M3-GT, move your Canadian butt down here to the Golden State--no salt on the roads, hot babes in bikinis a good 7 months of the year some beaches, and best of all, lots of automotive enthusiasts just like us. Of course, you do have to deal with the "Governator", but hey, it's better than freezing your nalgas off 4 months of the year.

I have a Fujitsubo Legalis-R on my Z and the craftmanship, fit, finish, and sound are second to none. I have initiated contact with Fujitsubo about an exhaust for the MZ3. I will post info once I receive a reply back from them.
