Hi all.

New to this forum. Just found it today while searching for more peeps out there rockin' the 3.

I have a Sunlight Metallic Silver Hatchback 5 speed. It has the Xenon pkg, Moonroof pkg, and the ABS pkg.

Tons of pics already in my gallery >> My 3

Oh btw, almost up to 400 miles. And I live in Colorado.

Enjoy

EDIT: Topic renamed to show model/trim

Very nice! I think you may be the first owner here with a silver MZ3
(hatch or sedan). What kind of deal did you get? What are your likes so far? Any dislikes? Also add your location to your profile. Congrats on your new baby :)

Thanks.

Its a hatchback.

Likes: Almost everything! Except the weird offset of the wheels.... may have to experiment some. If you get this car.. its a SIN if you didnt get the Xenon pkg.

Dislikes: Again, the offset will make it difficult to go with BIG wheels. When you got the stereo bangin'.. the drivers door has a big of rattle, but not annoying. And wth is goin on with the battery tray? It has a "ram air" tube for it lmao. Finally.. aftermarket parts!! But those will be coming like a hurricane soon.

Hmm..that means the screw on the antenna must be standardized. I must look into that :D

I don't really like the huge long wire that comes out of the top right now for me.

Maybe its the Xenon pkg that comes that way, only mod so far here is the antenna.

I chose the Silver over the Red after I seen it for the first time in person. Its very shiny and sparkly.

Levitron: its pretty standard. My old Focus, Jetta and GTI where the same. Others that are the same include: Acura MDX, Civic SI, and the Mini Pooper.

That is just sooooo awesome that you get xenon AND blacked out heads in the same package....SWEET!

I know the guys over at the rsx forum are having to bake their headlights in the oven, crack 'em open and paint them and put 'em back together to black them out. What a pain.

Mazda is really putting a ton into the 3. I am impressed to say the least.

They should come standard, even without the Xenon package.
You know I went back and looked at some pics of other 3s and I believe you are correct. I can't beleive i haven't noticed this before now.

Anyways...if you cant tell I'm excited about the Blacked out headlights that match the blacked out tails on the 3s.

You might not want to keep your coins there next to the shifter. You don't want some bum off the street breaking your glass just to get some spare change.

Silver is a great colour. Makes the headlights really stand out.

Looks cool. Does it pick up AM stations as well, or just FM?

Congrates on your new buy, felt so happy for you. Very nice car you got there :D Hope we'll get what you've got there, here... all these long wait is killing me... :oops: Think, I'll replace the antenna with the "shark fin" type... like those on the BMWs, if I can get one :lol:
