I had a previous thread on here but nothing came from it. This is my 2002 Mazda Protege5. Classic Red, 127,xxx, 5 Speed with some cosmetics done to her. I plan on adding more things as time goes on, but I am a college student and I haven't had a chance to inherit millions yet. So this may take some time to get her where i want her at. With what i have had done to my car, only makes me want to do so much more. I was originally on the VWVortex forum, since my prior "money pit" was a Mark3 VW Jetta. After a motor swap and tranny swap, i sold the bucket and moved to my Mazda. With this being said, I can navigate the forum pretty well but will still be asking questions. Im looking forward to giving opinions and advice(on what i know about) to you guys and i hope i can receive the same.
I have a few things already done to her:
- Tokico Hp's
- Eibach Pro-Kit
- Racing Beat Bump Stops
- Moog Front/Rear End Links
- Fog Light Mod
- M6 Wagon Rear Wiper Mod
- Plasti-Dip Rear Valance
- 20% Tint All Around
- Alpine Headunit
- 10" JL W3 Subwoofer
- Clarion 500W Amp

- Celica Side Markers
- Hardwired Radar Detector
- Roof Rack Delete
- Sylvania Silverstar Ultra High / Low Beams

And a few on the To-Do list:

Her first day home. This was about 11 months ago.
Switched from the metal rake to the M6 wiper.
Saw HatchKitten plastidip her rear valance and had to do the same.
While I had the plastidip out, I sprayed the stubby..
Got a lil crazy with the plastidip and my mirrors weren't in the best shape anyways.
There was one night when we had some bad ice...and I caught some of it...
Turned her into Frankenstein until insurance could take a look at her.
One week later...
Bump Stops came in the mail!!
F the winter im ready for SPRING...Eibach Springs that is. (Pro-Kit)
To compliment the Pro-Kit...Tokico HP's
Eibach Pro Kit with Tokico HP's
Front done, mid process of rear.
And now some after pics..
Short Throw on the to-do list...
Give her some character...
Hardwire Radar, Cleans up the dash and frees up the 12v outlet.
And for a comparison of stock vs this combo
