    Oh right, forgot that the 5th could be swapped from the outside of the case. I was looking to do this back in 2012 when the 6 speeds had just come out.
  3. Same- not sure I have the exact same kit as you,...

    Same- not sure I have the exact same kit as you, but I have the factory rack that fits the 2006-2010. The only thing I needed it for was to know where to mount the spoilers, which I don't use since I...

    I was going to swap the 6 speed transmission over- seems like a better setup for only $1k without having to dig inside for gear swaps. I'm pretty sure I verified that the axles, trans case interface,...

    Excellent- will watch for the review, and get your sway bar quote once I fly out and back again for work. :(

    Almost everything in the drivetrain is shared. Suspension, brakes, engines/transmissions to a degree- all can be swapped around. I ended up with Mazdaspeed 3 brakes and rear sway bar, Miata wheels,...

    I honestly don't remember- but I may have the settings in my car maintenance app. I'll dig through the history and then post back. As far as height, I just went for even wheel gap- which I think was...

    Very nice writeup! I never hard wired my dash cams in... now too many wires running all over the dash. So many things to do...

    Good info!

    And there are ways to slave another Android device to the head unit and then run a custom APK to enable your main phone to use the slave phone as a wireless pass-through. Unofficial...

    Very nice! Maybe you could put some aero on the front to keep it from making noise when empty? Paint black? I think the bolts I ended up using were 1/4-20, not M6.

    I had no idea that the factory...

    Hey, welcome. I don't think there's a more active 5 forum anywhere- it's not a car that really encourages modding. Typical problem areas that draw people to M247 are the front brakes and rear shocks,...

    Yup, definitely PM material or a phone call. I rarely tracked the S2k, but my friends that did had plenty of opportunity to compare my ASTs to their Fortunes, KW3s, Buddy Clubs, HKS, Tein, etc. Let's...

    Hey, you're welcome. I actually liked the ride with the BCs more than the factory suspension- even though the spring rates were higher, the damping was better- so the ride was more controlled. Once I...

    Oh, and yesterday I pondered the choices I've made with the 5, and why I haven't truly put it up for sale yet. My wife told me that a random guy (local lawn crew) came by on Thursday to ask if it was...

    Nice! My chinese sucks too much to order from that site or bargain with the seller... I didn't know you could do this as an aftermarket kit. Now to hunt Amazon and eBay.

    It's a known weak point. I was lucky with mine and never had an issue.

    If you can't find fitments for the 5, use the part numbers for the Mazdaspeed 3. Not sure on the V50 fitment. As far as Koni or anyone else being problematic, usually it's because the shocks are...

    Camber bolts can fix the front since it uses Mac struts. Rear you'll have to get extended or adjustable control arms.
