    Maybe. How much did you want for them? 17's don't look too bad on the car though. Travis runs 17's and it looks good to me. His car is the red 2nd gen in the pics I sent you last weekend.

    Changed the trans fluid two days ago and finally took it to work today. First to second gear grind is gone. All gear engagement is smooth. Used to get a weird jerk going from first to second which appears to be gone too. It made me think I forgot how to drive.

    I like your car, I have a 2007 MS3 that I am getting the engine rebuilt on. It is at the machine shop now but I am having difficulty finding any of the specifications for the engine block. Does anyone know where I can get the crankshaft and cylinder bore information for it? I purchased an FSM but it only had information on the heads, oil pump and timing components, nothing about the block.

    The car looks great, my son has one just like it only it is a 2007. Does any one know where I can get the specs for the engine block? I have tried Mazda and buying a FSM but no success.

    Thanks. My apologies though. I won't be much help since I'm new to this platform. Literally haven't even had the car for a month yet!

    Have you tried the other two "mazdaspeed" forums? Also try contacting Corksport, maybe they would know.

    Fixed my clunk! 99% of it is gone. It was definitely the front sway bar bushings. The passenger side bushing broke in half while trying to remove it lol. It was also the corner that made the most noise. Needless to say I'm pretty happy since clunks and rattles are one of my pet peeves.

    Also fixed my fog lights. Installed bulbs since they were just missing from when I got the car and rewired in pigtails.
