It just so happens Mazda tuners extraordinaire (Racing Beat) is located on my way home from work! I stopped by last friday and talked to one of the engineers / customer service guys (forgot his name) about parts for the 3. They had just received a yellew 5 door from Mazda and planned on having springs and sway bars in 4-6 months. I actually didn't drive my 3 last Friday so I'm planning on stopping by again in the next week or so. I'll keep you posted...

I think they'll walk before they run!
Racing beat has put out some very affordable springs and sway bars in the past which is what the masses will want over a coilover set up. I really like their springs as they are not as stiff as most of the aftermarket guys. They also do a ton of testing before they put anything on the market - which should ensure an decent improvement over stock.

Match their spring to Koni adjustables. Bingo, perfect AutoX setup.

I think Koni's would make my day :)
being able to adjust means being able to raise car and set for snow in the winter, and then stiffening and lowering car for summer :)

unfortunately, I think spring changes put you in super stock or something.

But a Racing Beat cat back would also make my day.
As soon as someone gets prices, let me know!
