Here's what we have thus far. I'll add a poll soon.

EDIT:

SMs, cast your vote now! If any Mods or Admins are caught sneaking in a vote, the phrase "terminate with extreme prejudice" may come into play.

Re: COTM Candidates -- January 2007

RubyRed3:


I've got some better pictures I can send later today, but here's my 3.
Its a 2004 Sedan S, in Velocity Red Mica (the best color) with every
option (including nav) except a sunroof (I'm 6'5", I need all the
headroom I can get, especially with a helmet). Mods include:

Racing Sparco NT-R's in Bronze 17x7 (15.3 lbs a piece) with 215/45-17
BFG G-force sports
Progress Rear Sway Bar (with "declunking" shims)
Mazdaspeed intake
Speedline international front grille
Vinyl removed from doors
Voodoo shift knob, pistol grip style
Aux-in audio hack

Nothing too over the top, but I've yet to find a single person who
dislike a single one of my mods, I get asked all the time "is that a
mazdaspeed 3"? Which I take as a compliment. It means they like how it
looks but think its clean enough that it must have been factory tuned
that way. My mom can still drive it and not complain about a stiff
ride or too much noise. I've done the over the top tuning thing on my
integra (my last car), on this car I wanted something that was
definitely improved in many areas, but still approachable to even the
non "tuner". I call it "universal appeal". Its also quite competitive
in STS despite being pretty underprepped for that class; a testament
to how well the stock suspension is set up if you ask me.

Let me know if its worth me sending more pictures of her (her name is
"Ruby" of course), I've got some more good ones, they are just on my
laptop, which I'll get at lunchtime.

Re: COTM Candidates -- January 2007

Posted quite a few places, actually. Just not here, eh? My bad. This time around only SMs vote. Maybe we'll open it up to all members in February. And actually, I think that's a good idea. However, there's going to be one caveat, and that is if the popular vote goes in favor of a troublemaker, then I'll nix that. Fair enough, y'all?

I always loved the look of Daniel's (sok07) car, and the mods he has done to it (tasteful and useful). He gets my vote!

Re: COTM Candidates -- January 2007

smokinAMD:

2005 3s 5 speed with sports package.

Mods are as follows:

5% tint.
Draxas header.
Draxas exhaust.
AEM Intake
TWM Shifter
Sok07 deadpedal
Mazdaspeed pedals
Mazda satin fuel door
Mazdaspeed springs
Mazdaspeed struts
Racingbeat swaybars
XTEC 50watt 6000k HIDs
XTEC hidmatch fogs
Independent fog mod
Sylvania Silverstar highbeams
Sylvania Silverstar turnsignals
Speedline International grille
Accolade Eyelids

Eclipse cd8445 headunit with full steering wheel control integration.
17x7 Exel Ennio gunmetal wheels with 215/45 Toyo Proxes FZ4's.
AWR 70 durometer lower motor mount
Sharkfin antennae

I purchased the car on December 11th of 2004, was pretty much a spur of the moment decision that I have yet to regret. This was my first new car, and I absolutely love it, despite the facts I've had some problems with it. Most noteably was when my engine died at the Texas Statewide meet and mazda refused to cover it under warantee because of my header. Which had nothing to do with the engine problem I had, but whatever. I ended up having to rent a U-haul and tow my car 900 miles back home and put a new engine in myself. $1,500 shipped for an engine with 11k miles on sure beats however much Mazda wanted to stick me for. I'm proud to say, that everything on my car has been installed by me, the only thing I've paid to have done is the window tint. I even painted my grille and eyelids myself. I dont have any sponsorships, just a hard working guy in college who loves cars. Recently taken up autocross, which is definantly a blast in this car.

What's this crap that Mods can't vote? ;) I somehow need to rig it so that sok wins this round! :chuckles:
[/quote]

I think its the "TGM3 RULE" due to the fact that he rigged it to be the Dec 06 COTM.... :)
