the original pic was taken when the freighter that was carrying all the new M3's sunk i think?

So a few hundred M3s were ruined.

It was back when they were first coming out.

Excuse me while I change my shorts!



New here guys, I am a mazdaspeed 3 owner, so I figure'd I'd drop in and bless this thread with a few nice ms3's. I've been a lurker on this forum for the past year and a day don't go by that I don't come in here and check out this thread! I currently work for an insurance company and my next purchase will be an e92 M3. For now, I enjoy what I have!

Onto the pics...

My MS3. Although it's not super aggressive compared to some cars on here, for the ms3 world, it's considered fairly aggressive. We have shitty fenders in the rear. These pictures are before my current transformation, going with slightly stretched 215/40/18 bf goodrich kdw 2's, swapping out the 5mm spacers for 10mm spacers, and lowering the rear a little more along with custom powdercoating. For now, these pics will have to do:









Few randoms from mazda247.com/mazda3forums.com:
































Enjoy!!! e46 FTW!

I love the Mazda 3's. I almost got one in HS instead of my e46. One of my good friends has one too and I'm always driving hers and they drive really well. I keep trying to get her to mod it I always wanted a white hatch as a DD.

Thanks man! Nah...I'm not baller enough to afford the real things, these are the 18x8.5 Rota SVN's. But they do the job. My car is a DD, so I'll wait till I get my M3 before I get baller wheels!

They may be FWD, but they are fun as hell. The LSD in them really make up for the FWD. Also, it weighs in at 3100, so it's pretty nimble and it responds amazingly to mods. I have mine tuned stage 2+ 93 octane v1.05 COBB AccessPORT 18.5 psi, pushing 315 at the wheels, and 350 ft lbs. I'm pretty much fully bolted except the turbo; I stuck with the stock k04 because it is a smaller turbo and is a torque monster.

Thanks for the kind comments guys. Mazda 3's are a dime a dozen, but seeing them modded with taste is a totally different story. I've seen alot of different cars in this thread, but very very very few Mazdas, so I figure'd I'd show us some love!


p.s. oh and btw, mine is undergoing a pretty big transformation right now with tires, wheels, suspension, and exterior, so I will be sure to post new pics once everything is installed if you guys would be interested, that is. Hopefully around March the salt and snow will subside and I can get my freshly painted wheels back on! I am rocking the stockers right now
