Look around the forum! There is a TON of great info so you can do just about anything you can possibly think of. The only limit is your imagination and wallet.

Once you get an idea, as Lucas said, ask us and we'll be happy to help out. Also, this is a great list of how to's. http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=106582.0

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new MZ3 (I have a black 06 too) :)

Needs wheels and a drop. ;)

Then definitely sway bars for that extra-tight-cornering, angel eyes for the classy bimmer look, HID kit, 20% tint, sharkfin if it's a sedan or stubby if it's a hatch..... tons of how-tos in the various sections of the forum.

Oh and CAI/SRI and grounding under the hood are practically a must, as is the ignition timing advance mod :)

If you have a MTX get a STS, makes driving the car much more fun. Do all the free/cheap mods like removing the side moldings, tinting sidemarkers, etc. Tints help a lot as well. That should get you started.

I would love to post some pics but I'm having trouble doing so. Any tips? I'm planning on tinting her soon but I live in NC and have to go with lame ass 35% tint but on black cars it actually looks a lot darker. I recently masked the rear reflectors and I'm hoping to black out the front and rear emblems. I'm removing the side molding and badges this weekend hopefully!! Thanks for the tips! I want to do angel eyes but I'm nervous about baking the headlamps.

To post pictures, host them online such such as photobucket or imageshack. Once they're online, copy the link. When you're creating your post, click the image icon above. These will appear paste your link in-between them.

Don't be afraid of the oven. 200 degrees for 20 minutes, no problem. I've done about 10 sets and am always happy to help when I can.

It should noted your tint appears lighter because you're parked facing the sun. The light is shining through the untinted windshield.
