Decided to post everything in one spot in regards to my car, makes it easier for me as well as to remember what I did.

New 2014 Mazda 6 Touring Owner "Black on Black". coming from a 2003 Toyota Matrix.


My old car I still have, going to be selling it off this weekend.



First mods were changing out the stock bulbs in the interior to LEDs. Next up is HID for the low beams and hopefully lowering the car if the wife gives the go ahead.

Bought one of the first aftermarket headlamps..



Update: The rewire worked on the Touring model.. I still have the HIGH beam DRL (halogen), HID low beam. The C-Style LEDs were wire to the side lamp but side lamp does not come on until turn signal is triggered. So driving, HIGH BEAM kicks in as usual until I figure out if want to rewire it off and just have the LED instead wired to side lights.

Finally have the Air lift Performance 3p Kit installed from Air Lift Performance.
So far drive is good at the current ride height, I am guessing It's a 2-3/4" - 3" drop - Aired out/ Slammed when park is a full 4-1/2" to 4-3/4" drop..


Ride-Height


Aired-Out



Dual Compressors on MDF boards, Velcro to original trunk cupboard thus making it somewhat a hidden compartment.


Updated photos.

You take out the original board with battery from your old key fob and swap into the new one above, that's it.. no re-programming, just swapping components in to a new shell.

Looks awesome! I am really enjoying this build so far. Still a little undecided on the front lights, but the car looks great. Good choice of rims.

What are your future plans with the car? You should get an MV tuning grille, and possibly remove the rear Mazda 6 and skyactiv badge? Take a look at my signature below this post if you are curious. It would really help clean up the look aesthetically.

You going to do any performance mods, such as OV ECU tune, camber plates, sway bars? What about a racing beat or tanabe axle-back exhaust?

Working on a second bumper to swap back and forth from OEM look to other look.. Using a J-Unit grille instead MV-Tuning..

that's a nice grille! looks better than MV tuning. Next I would paint the chrome strip on the front gloss black, debadge the rear end, add a tinted bubble plate cover on the back, relocate the front plate, a medium dark tint on the rear lights + some fat gloss black exhaust tips. Would look awesome. If you want to go all out, see an upholster so you can improve the contour of your seats, if needed and add some diamond stitching on the vinyl in the car. Do something with your carpets too if you want to get extra-fancy.
