    Yeah that's what I thought but didn't get a chance to look it up. Some of the paperwork said metro gray but the door says the color code is 32s which I thought was galaxy gray.

    an intake is an intake.... in all honesty if i were to go buying a new cold air intake for my car I'd go with an ebay one then just buy a good K&N cone filter... if you want a short ram intake your choices are Corksport and Simota (tough to find at this point)

    and as far as HID's my suggestion is no longer valid as i found out recently he was going out of business


    if you need any help/advice with parts let me know, ive done alot of things to these cars (mazda3's)

    After having water problems on my protege with a CAI, I decided I wanted to go with an SRI for this and based on what I know the Corksport is great quality.

    I've read a lot of your build thread and a few others on here and mazda3forums so the ideas have been piling up in my head. I actually used to have a picture of your car as the background on my computer

    hahaha, thanks

    if the Simota was easier to find id recommend going that route, but since they are a bit difficult to find the Corksport intake is a very solid/good choice

    Welcome to another 3 around here! I've still been grabbing DDM kits, just being very patient. I haven't found anyone else really better anymore.

    Once again Congrats on the upgrade! Like Levi I had a place to recommend for HIDs but they apparently no longer sell the 'kits' only bulbs and even then the supply is limited. A buddy of mine just ordered a NottoSE kit from carid.com, a bit more expensive than DDM at $89 but I have to say that their customer service was top notch.
