Taking it into shop for some repair estimate.
Someone decided to say hello to the front bumper at the intersection. (two car collided and one car bounced of and hit our stationary car while waiting at the light)
Car will be out of service for probably 2-3 weeks, got a rental RAV4 for now.
The Mazda5 had been traded in (3/11/2017)
I'd hate to spam the thread with a gallery of photos, so I will leave the last two pictures I took.
Installed Koni FSD struts all around, and F&R alignment...still tracking straight and true, and body control over freeway heaves and transitions is much improved. As smooth-riding as whatever was on it (bought used; have no idea if they were replaced before), maybe even a bit more compliant over expansion joints.
My second set of FSDs, I have them on my 2012 MINI Cooper, absolutely transformed that car from flinty-riding to pretty decent, and still nimble.
Oil change done. Flushed coolant
Cleaned up all the coffee, spilled & splashed in the accident we had a while back.
Waiting on tires to be delivered. Received my adjustable rear control arms.
Bought new front brake rotors & pads. Both Brembo, Autozone was the cheapest (March20 = 20% off + free shipping)
LED'd most of the easy bulbs. 9005 Opti-7 Fluxbeam high-beams, map lights, dome light, cargo light, backup lights. I needed shorty 194s for the map lights...didn't have on hand. Put on my rear bumper cover. Added a Valentine One mount and direct power wire (wrote a how-to elsewhere).
