    What are the differences between this wiper stalk and the stock one? Advantages, disadvantages?

    The MPV/Tribute stalk has adjustable Intermittent settings instead of the stock one where you can not change the intermittent speed. The dial thing that says "Int" is how you adjust. This is basically a no con mod. Direct plug and play and gives you extra adjustment settings, so well worth it in most opinions.

    This^^^
    There are absolutely no disadvantages with this mod. Proven oem technology and extra options = foolproof mod. Just make sure you use the MPV/tribute/Ford Escape/mazda6 wagon stalk on the P5, instead of the msp stalk, or you won't have a rear wiper anymore

    Is this the cover that goes over the passenger airbag? I want to cover mine with red vinyl to match the seats...

    How do you take that off? Are there tabs or something from the back side?

    02 Mazda P5 "Bumblebee"

    I'm still alive! its been too long since i've updated this thread...

    that ebay antenna - in short, its a pos. top half unscrewed and won't stay tightened down anymore, so i took it off. painted faded down to the copper(?) before that. any suggestions to a qualitative short antenna are welcome

    new changes - got jdm taillights, 03.5 cupholder upgrade which came with the full set of interior trims(console, radio surround, door handles, switch plates) painted in gunmetal grey, and msp lip. still looking for a pair of fog deletes.


    no pics of the lip yet but these came in this week i hope to get them mounted next week

    I run an s2000 antenna. Some people dont like them because the base is a little wider than the mount on the car. I didnt like the sound of that until I saw one in person. Its not bad. Most people seem to like the cx-7 antenna.

    Tails look good, where'd you get them?

    And youre killing me, what model/specs are the wheels!

    Tails I bought from a forum member (thx mp5la!), complete with bulbs and wiring harness. I was surprised at how good of a condition they were in

    Wheels are Varrstoen V3 16x8 +25 offset. Should fit just perfect on the rear, might be a bit out past the fenders on the front. Will probably need to roll my fenders. Tires are 215/40
