Hi guys..Just thought i'd share some pictures of my car.. Gave her a good clean today :cool:

I use Optimum No Rinse 'cause I stay in an apartment complex (no access to external taps etc) and the stuff is amazing :thumbsup:

Tints done, 65% fronts 83% rears (or allow 35% 17% of light respectively)



Roof getting wrapped by Paul @ PWPro in Mansfield, Notts. He did my tints too.. Top guy, i highly recommend him.





Close up of roof wrap, super clean


Rear End


Wrapped panels above exhaust tips too


CF grille I purchased off eBay :p Outstanding quality & fit and much cheaper


Knight Racer MINES style CF Spoiler, great job by the guys at Knight Racer - lovely quality and fitment

thanks guys :) got a few more bits planned like front splitter and a few more cf bits :blahblah:

was also planning to get wheels powdercoated into darker colour (satin black maybe) any thoughts?

Looking good there mate. Thinking of a wrap for mine but only the front. Not sure what colour though.
what do you mean only the front?

Has it had new exhaust tips because mine have never been as clean as that?:D
haha its clean isnt it! as mentioned in the first post i use ONR on it and you'll be amazed how it just lifts off the thick layer of soot on the exhaust pipes! if youre not familiar its YouTube - 2010 MazdaSpeed3 Optimum No-Rinse Washing Your Car In Your Garage

I really like the wheels Andrew, but I'm not convinced about the silver..... I think they would look great in black or maybe dark bronze?? The silver may grow on me yet tho.....

Also, just looking at the Ichiba site, did you go for the V1 or V2 spacers on your car?
Cheers :thumbsup:
Same here im not convinced with the silver so am considering getting them satin black :thumbsup:

v2 spacers mate.. hubcentric spacers are better!

i bought mine from the USA as i managed to get someone to bring them back for me..

there is a UK stockist called funkypower who should hopefully have some in stock and if not then its about a week's wait
