#83 of 88 Body Side Molding

Does anyone know an aftermarket source to get color matched body side molding for a 2010 Mazda3i 4 door?
#85 of 88 2010 Mazda3 OEM front & rear air dams
Dec 19, 2009 (4:28 pm)
does anyone have clearly-detailed photos that show well the appearance difference between 2010 Mazda3 with and without the factory OEM accessory front and/or rear air dams? The brochure is disappointingly vague -- or possibly the equipment is so subtle in appearance that I can't even tell. I know I've seen a new 3sGT without either, and I think it looks fine. The retail sticker of both parts is about $1000 so I'm having trouble believing why would anyone want them. The thumbnail photos in the brochure look the same as the car I saw, to me. I guess I'm saying no way do I want to spend $1000 for them, but I'm undecided whether it is important to make an effort to avoid them, or whether I can just say to a dealer "I don't care whether they are there or not, but I will only pay $zero for them".

If you go to the Mazda web page where you can "build" a new Mazda you will
find that you can see the differences with and without the front and rear aero
kits. Build the car and toward the end of that process, you will see all the
accessories available for the particular trimline you're interested in which includes
actual pictures of how that particular accessory looks on the car.
Personally, my '10 sGT hatch has both aero kits and the front one is actually
pretty sharp, while the rear is more subtle. I bought several accessories when
I ordered my car because I don't want my ride looking like every other 3sGT
on the road!
#87 of 88 Mazda Front Mud Guards
Mar 17, 2010 (4:01 pm)
I have found that the bottom lip of the moulded front mud guards on my 2009 Mazda 3 are not low enough. As a result, mud and grit from the wheels is spraying up on the rocker panels and from what I am seeing, it won't be long before the paint is worn off my rocker panels. Has anybody on this forum replaced their front mud guards with an aftermarket type to resolve this problem?
