    Well sold my Tacoma last week and bought a 2005 Mazda3 wagon. Its a 4spd auto, 2.3L, and super clean. Its a great little car in stock form. Not looking to do anything crazy to it for awhile. Wanting to do HID swap and LED tails once I get my ticket paid off.

    Thanks man. I mean gas is getting more expensive and I ain't getting any richer. I feel like the couple I sold it to are gonna take care of it and fix it back up to where it'll be looking sharp again. Once I get done with college and get a well-paying job, I'll def pick me up another tacoma.

    i was looking at a midnight blue 07 speed3 at the lot. then i went online that night and looked at it again. then i spotted the taco. i knew i would use the taco more then a mazda since i ride dirt bikes and haul stuff quite a bit. have fun with that car man! i occasionally get to drive my brother mazda 6. but it's still nothing like a 3

    I've seen some clean mazda 3's. All you really have to do is paint the rims and maybe tail tint and you're set. Big fan of Mazda's tho good choice :thumbsup:

    Yeah the speed3's are SSSIIIIICCCCKKK. My brother has the v6 grand touring 6s. The 6 is awesome and faster but I love the go-cart like handling and response of the 3.

    Thanks bud. I MIGHT plasti-dip the wheels but I like the wheels as is IMO. Def not tinting the tails. I'm worried the window tint might get me into trouble. Not like this car already has though lol.

    Drive a v6 model, its surprisingly quick even with an automatic. This car doesn't lean or roll at all going through the mountain roads but isn't super stiff for freeway driving.

    Well did my first mod to it yesterday if you wanna call it that. The previous owner had some cheap brushed aluminum interior accent stuff all over the inside so took all of it off. I didn't like it all because light would reflect off it and mess with my vision. So interior is murdered-out now haha. Debating on taking the strip that goes along the doors off and maybe debadging it.

    My bad forgot your's has the black tail light housing already so forget tinting the tails ha.

    But ya try and plastidip a rim and see if you like it, I think you definetly will. As far as window tint its all preference, but no matter what you get you can get pulled over for it, friend of mine has 50% and he's got a ticket. I have 35% and no problems.

    Regardless put up some pics of the build/whatever you call it :D

    YOU WONT PUT A 3 ROTOR IN IT...
