2003 Mazdaspeed Protege
Your going to love the motor mount and short shifter combo. Pair those along with some corksport exhaust hangers and you'll feel a nice difference.


Sell it bakc and keep your trunk wingless. I have a 2003.5 spoiler on mine and I wanna go bakc to wingless!

ok if you say so i will....lol..i actually just sold it today and shipped it out....im just gonna rock the CF roof spoiler i have...
