    Installed both new control arms. That rear bracket was a major PITA

    Same, cracking open the column cover was little annoying so I left a small scratch near the ignition

    Swapped out my cheapo junkyard Eibach springs for new Racing Beats.
    They were low but really stiff, too much for my Tokico HPs to damp and
    speed bumps were really bad. If it was only getting driven on a track
    they might be OK with Illuminas.

    Also installed my Cusco lower front brace, courtesy of CR3 Motorsports. Good
    price and beautiful work - took a couple of months to get from Japan, but
    worth the wait.

    Next is mounting my new front tires and getting a proper alignment, the last
    one wiped out a brand new set of front tires in less than 3000 miles. Was not
    happy with that, and won't be going back to a place I trusted for several years.

    Worst part was a road trip from Colorado to Texas with heavy rain on the way
    home, couldn't figure out why the front was hydroplaning like crazy until my
    next fuel stop. Looked at the front tires and my jaw dropped! Best guess is way
    too much toe-in.

    New Rims and tires. Also installed LED tail and turn signals. I may install the LED load resistors but I kinda like the rapid flashing, helps people actually notice my signal lmao

    Nice and clean looking SeminoleMan! The wheels suit it well.

    Is that a factory fitted sunroof? We here in Australia didn't have a factory sunroof option. I'm interested to see what the controls and headliner looks like with a factory sunroof. The dome light would have to be relocated I'm guessing? Could you please post some photos?

    Thanks, JazzySP20!

    Here in the U.S., you could opt for the factory moonroof/ sunroof. This option was bundled with the in-dash 6-disc changer and sub-woofer mounted in the spare wheel. The overhead controls are simple consisting of two-buttons and two overhead lamps. The first control button nearest the driver raises or lowers the rear portion of the roof glass while the button nearest the passenger slides the glass backward and forward.

    Thanks for the pic SM. That's a different dome light to what I have. Headliner looks neat with the dome light installed in what looks like a raised channel in the middle of the headliner. S/R controls look nice and basic with reading lamps for driver and passenger. Have to say if that's a the factory headliner for P5's with S/R, it looks very neat and tidy. Damn you Mazda Australia for not having a S/R option!

    I had new Kia bushings which came with the short shifter and the ones near the linkage weren't bad. The way the website describes it is spot on, "tight and direct". There was really not much play but these made it much better. Where you shift to, is where it goes.
