Today I bought new snow tires. I chose https://www.nokiantires.com/tires/passenger-car/winter-tires/ nokian tires because I have had them before.I have checked new tires for my car. Also i bought bigger exhaust pipe extension. I fel like a little boy who is tuning his car haha!
Yes it's Auto trans, tho I dearly wish it was manual.Do you remember how much trans fluid (I assume this is auto trans?) was needed for the flush and refill?
I attempted to replace our LCAs over the winter only to find the larger bolts were seized in the arms. My impact hammer wouldn't even get them to budge. Ended up having to take it to a shop to get the arms cut out and replaced. Next on the list: front-alignment!Doing lots of overdue 75k maintenance on the '12 Mazda 5 during COVID19 shutdown. Front lower control arms, tie rods, belt, tensioner, idler pulley, plus 2 new tires and a trans filter/flush/refill. Just a refresh of stuff that is either due or will be due soon.
Reminds of of a stealth install from a guy on one of the old Mazda 3 forums. He installed Hella black out driving lamps behind the lower grille. The grille didn’t really impinge on the light they put out, and when they were off they looked black.The front end of our 5 has gotten a lot of attention as of late. Swapped out the stock halogen low beams with HIDs, installed a pair of Hella 500 driving lights with retrofitted HIDs, and finally replaced the stock horn with a dual horn setup (Fiamm Freeway Blaster high and low tones).

Yeah, I remember coming across that when I was researching fog/driving lights. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of grille mesh or even room between the grille and impact bar to mount these lights stealthily. But I always liked the look of exposed lights (because rally car!). I'm actually contemplating adding a second set to the front to have four lights filling up the section of grill I cut out... kind like this:Reminds of of a stealth install from a guy on one of the old Mazda 3 forums.
