    I got my set off ebay and then TPMS service kits from amazon. If you got them powdercoated, they can smooth out the curb rash during the sandblasting process. Great deal for $300, regardless.

    I'm just going to spray them with anthracite grey plasti dip and glossifier for now.

    No, I got them from a boosted mazda3 (not ms3) who blew an engine and is moving on to a new project. FYI his engine went after 85k miles at 16psi on stock internals, so that's another data point that says I should be safe at 10psi.

    Swapped the front and rear amber turn signals for Silverstar ones so they're no longer amber. Also put a Thule fairing on

    Started plastidipping the GenPu MS3 wheels. Got one done (it was the one with the fucked up repair job the last owner did)

    Swapped out the amber turn signal bulbs for Sylvania Silverstar's. I really hate amber and wish the head lights didn't have the amber reflector. I'll eventually get the international version headlights when I get more money though.

    Agree 100%, hate the amber reflector.

    Does the silverstars blink orange, but just look clear? If so, do you have the front and rear model numbers, as I would love to do it.

    THanks!

    I am looking forward to seeing them on your ride, but are those Ford center caps or are my eyes deceiving me?

    The guy I bought them from tried to put them on his Buddy's Ford. I'm going to use the stock black Mazda caps.

    Well, actually, it was last weekend, not today, but what I did with with my Mazda5 was:



    Autocrossed it!

    Autocrossing the 5 was big-time fun! I expected it to feel like I was going to roll over, but the 5 felt incredibly planted and balanced. I expected I'd spend the whole day fighting understeer, but between the MS3 swaybar and the really old, really worn Azenis on the back, I was actually getting oversteer, much like I do in the P5 with it's Big Honkin' Swaybar and adjustable endlinks!

    My goals were to not roll it, and to not finish last. I kept the shiny side up, and I was faster than 6 other cars in the morning session, including an Audi A3, a VW Corrado TDi, 2 NA Miatas and a 2005 Corvette Z51! ...And yes, I know that autocross times depend on a lot of factors, and yes, I'll admit that the Corvette never got to take advantage of his horse power on the very twisty, short course, and no, I don't know if he'd ever done it before, but you know what? I beat a freakin' Corvette in a competitive automotive event that didn't involve transporting quantities of people or lumber, while driving a MINIVAN!! So, I'm calling that a win. Whether that's a win for me or a win for the Mazda5, I'll leave up to you to decide for yourselves.

    I laid a lot of rubber down coming out of one particular corner, and when my friend gets around to sharing her pictures with me, I'll get some "Mazda5 turning tires into smoke" pictures up here for your pleasure.

    In-car video here, but no sound.

    Has anyone successfully disassembled the Mazda center caps for painting? If so, how?

    No clue. Mine are black with chrome flying M so I find no need to disassemble them

    They blink white/yellowish for the most part. They light up signs pretty well at night.

    The bulb numbers are 7440ST for rear and 1157A ST for front.
