This is my first car and I purchased it in Dec 07, but I decided last week that I should start having a little fun with my 3. The only things I have added are tint, new rims/tires and a grill. I put on the rims/tires and the grill. I had no idea I would have this much fun and satisfaction out of doing these small things. So, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Before 2/22/09






After 3/1/09

If you are looking for an inexpensive mod I've noticed that a lot of people, especially sedans buy the stubby or shark fin antennas...

A few I have done that aren't too expensive: LED interior and reverse/license plate, Spoiler, HID headlights, new shift knob/pedals. You could also get eyelids relatively cheap, smoked side markers and much more, but running out of ideas off the top of my head.

All very good suggestions! I totally forgot about the sharkfin antenna, my friend has that on his 3. I do agree that the side moldings do have to go lol.

Smoked side markers and a new shift knob does sound pretty nice.

Thanks guys! I got some new ideas. :D

You guys are right.


I think lowering is next as well as a stubby antenna. OEM side skirts? They look that good? Yea, I think I should get the black taillights but they are a bit pricey, how does the spray work?

Thanks guys! Great ideas all around, more fun to come!

I think painting your front grill to match should be at the top of the list IMO besides that...

stubby/shark antenna, smoke side signals, painted brake calipers, lower/coil springs, Cold air intake, exhaust.

I thought id put the cheaper stuff first

Alright, I'm looking for a lowering kit atm. I'm going to get a stubby as well, my friend has a sharkfin on his white mazda3 and I'm just not feeling it.

I also want to remove the side moldings, I never really noticed how retarded they look lol... but now I do. I have an 06, would removing it now leave some discoloration?

ty!

TB ground, CS inserts (or the Medieval dogbone), short shifter, hawk HPS; then CAI and CBE.

IMO, I would do the suspension; springs, struts; and go for a rear swaybar. If you want rice I would say go for eye lids and a lip.
