Nice car...I like that color on the 3.

Yes, get a tripod, a good DSLR, and learn how to create HDR images, then you can post some awesome photos.

nice car man.

Hmm thinking about the spoiler, not bad not bad. Sorry man, is there any way i can request a side pic? :p

I have a hatch without a spoiler at all, and I always think that a ms3 wing will look out of place on my car since I have 16" OEM wheels (i like the design though).

That looks awesome. I was thinking about that lip, since it is the only lip for 07+ hatch. Where did you order this from? Did it come painted already?

SuperShyGuy makes this lip replica and you have the option to buy it painted or not.

switching your spoiler from a mz3 spoiler to a ms3 spoiler is easy. just take out the screws from the inside of the trunk lid and put on the ms3 spoiler, but there are gonna be two holes near the middle of the trunk lip that you're gonna have to cover up.

what he said :)
i bought my lip from SuperShyGuy. At the time, i paid 260 Canadian for the DAMD lip.
and i purchased it unpainted.
i got it painted locally.

as for the ms3 spoiler, it is a fairly simple install :)
because i had an 08 GT, i did not have to drill any holes, however, there are two separate holes (to hold the mz3 spoiler)
i will try and take pics soon for the side profile.
i think the ms3 spoiler is a great addition to the car!

thx a lot kevine11 and ladiesman217. 2 more questions? how did you patch up those extra holes and was it easy to run the brake light wire into the original connections? ive read many ppl had problems with the brake light. but before i get my wing i need to paint my car cause my 3 took a beating. thank a lot guys! :)

well i just left the holes there..
when u take off the spoiler, there are already inserts in there for the mz3 spoiler
i will try and take pics when i get home tonight
i think u should get the wing then paint the car together, so then the wing and the car's paint match will be relatively close =)
well mine came with a LED brake light, but wires were cut and required me to tap the wires...
so then i switched the LED brake lights with my OEM LED brake lights on my mz3 spoiler, so it was just a connection, and did not require tapping of any wires.
for us 07+ models, i guess we are somewhat luckier haha

Very very very clean looking car.

Some RX8s would look great on your car.

Or even my OEM Mazdaspeed 3 wheels which I want to get rid of for cheap :D

Either way, keep it up! Great work

a photoshoot will be coming soon!!
any ideas of rims i should get?
i don't want the "oem" look
i was thinking like Bronze Work Emotion Cr kai's
or perhaps, 5zigen zr520 bronze
what other colours would go well with my set up?

thanks. i am about to order this lip from nextmod. they said it will be painted and shipped to CA for $260. Was it difficult to install? Did you have to remove the bumper to install the lip? Any tips would help.

haven't updated this thread for a while!,
just wanted to update that i will be putting on my Work Emotion Cr Kai's 18 x 7.5 +42 after this winter!
it is matte black and i'm going with the work blue lugz!
can't wait! im hella excited

i also installed an ipod adaptor, i went with the audio link :)
i'm liking it so far .. and when winter is gone, i will be repainting my rear bumper to get the "MS3" look, and i will be tinting my rear reflectors!

another upcoming mod will be baking my headlights open and installing the "Clear Lens Mod" and remove the amber reflectors

also i'd like to rewire my headlights, so whenever i unlock/lock my car, my hid's will stay on for 20-30 seconds...does anyone know how to do that??
